The effectiveness of cruisers really depends on the pilot. My current (and experimental) cruiser build is geared towards tanking and healing, and I do throw heals to teammates when they are in range (10km, and 7.5km for ExtSh).

Other cruiser pilots, like one of my ingame friends, has his Odyssey set up for damage - and can easily out-damage a PVE escort.

And then there are pilots who don't know the difference between cruisers and escorts... and unfortunately, if you're stuck with that guy, there's where your issues start cropping up.
