if you have a cruser to hold aggro, they wouldnt worry about turning, in ideal only dmg they gonna take will be from aoe atacks, and also that gonna make them think about aggro and ways to prevent taking it., also as many ppl already siad, its pure dps race right now, if escorts are to worry about dying, it will change in some way, it wont be just dps that matters, as for survival of crusers, i think they are just fine, may be ajust NPCS with a bit higher sustained dmg, and remove or greatly reduce their spike dmg, at best that dmg should be enough to one shoot kill you, but avoidable, like moving out of area, clearing buff/debuff in some short interval, or using some univerasl ability.
