Haha you must be frothing at the mouth. I was SCREAMING huh? Klings get cloak, Period. It should have to be a challenge to 1v1 with a fed ship. Try playing a Fed escort and see if you agree with your statements. Who says we don't use those BOs? I do, and it doesnt matter what happens. As a cruiser I go down last. Our escorts get killed immediately, then science, then me. At that point it doesn't matter what happens. Having cloak gives the Klings a huge advantage. Because some Kling players in beta were big crybabies they had to buff the ships to make them stand toe to toe without cloak as a factor. I don't care what the numbers say, the BoP needs a close review.
Now if you want to argue that Fed escort are worthless then we might have another discussion, but the reality is that came about because of the crying Science ship officers during closed beta. They became uber, the Escorts were nerfed (along with BoPs and Raptors) and while the Devs fixed the Science ships they never gave any love back to the Fed Escort.
