Being a frequenter of the forums, I'll take a stab at this:
- In PvP, Cruisers are no longer finding themselves able to wear Escorts down via attrition
- Some people approach this problem by trying to examine why this wasn't true a year ago (others are examining the DPS discrepancy between beam and cannon builds)
- This faction has determined that the problem is defensive power creep over the seasons (e.g. Lockbox/Fleet Ships, Shield DOFFs, Elite Fleet Shields, Reputation Bonuses, and now Subterfuge BOFFs)
- The problem isn't the size of Subtlety defense bonus so much as the fact that it is (in their opinion) a step in the wrong direction for the overall defensive capabilities of ships.
