Like I said it takes some creativity.... is it harder to pull off yes it is. Are 95% o the tactical players in this game going to be worth having in that ship over a competent sci/sci NO. Which is why I suggested he try a cruiser if hes board.
Really though... the first time I did a tac repulsor ship, ya it caught plenty of people of guard and I smacked around plenty of good teams with it till I got board and moved on.
These days I could show you how to burst more in a fed fleet sci refit then any escort could hope to pull off... and I won't mention the combo here... cause anytime I fly the BS builds or talk about them here they get done to death for awhile.
Bottom line yes its doable... you are right though its beyond most players... and there best off in an Escort or perhaps a cruiser if they do it right.
