2 - Fairness in classes doesn't exist and will most likely never exist. Subnuc is annoying, but having your shields and hull drilled in a second or two gives the ultimate advantage to the escorts.

3 - If you want to get better you need to ask people questions. If you choose to do so remember this little gem of advice. Just as you like people to be polite to you, be polite to the people you're asking. Saying something like, "You're cheating and I want to know how or I'll report you", will elicit hostility. If this happens, you have nobody but yourself to blame. If you're polite, chances are you'll get some assistance and maybe make a new friend.

Keep these in mind and you'll have a fun time.
Thats the right attitude.

Ofcourse, there is no such thing as pure balance, its too complex to ever make that true in a MMORPG. And indeed you are right, like the state of the game is now. Engi's are probably the least viable class to play atm. (Sure there are still players that rock it im sure)

Oh and yeah, im sure its great to show how good you can survive a 1v1 or pug in kerrat and never die if you do it right. For teamplay however;

APA/GDF SNB/SCAN is much better overall. Some accept it, some do not. But you always have a choice to play either.
