If you want the best in this game, be tactical and buy an escort. All other is junk here, it looks nice at paper, but don't work at game at all.

Only in PVP, for the rest of the game, anyone can have a lot of fun and be highly successful in a cruiser as eng, or a science ship as sci.

For example I think I do quite well in eSTFs as an engineer cruiser captain, but I wouldn't go into PVP as him, as I know I would get my arse handed to me. At the best I would be able to tank an escort's attacks for a short time and not be able to retaliate good enough.

Meh, grass is greener syndrome.

When I'm on my sci I wish I was a tac. On my tac I wish I was my sci. Yeah, in most cases a tac in an escort is going to be most effective, but the differences aren't as strong as most people make them out to be. No amount of DPS is going to save the day the way I can in a well specced vesta when things start to go south. No amount of fancy vesta tricks are going to mean a damn if the run goes so smoothly I don't need to do anything but DPS.

I don't PvP so if that's your game then you need more specialized advice, but for PvE the classes and ships are more balanced then people would lead you to believe. It's not perfect but it's not as lopsided as the extremist insist.
I once again match my character. Behold the power of PINK!

well the only reason you would need the fancy abilities, because others did not have the DPS or brains to keep stuff under control. so the imbalance is right there, and it is severe

There seems to be a lot of competition as to what ship to get, i mean, out of the two, which would be the more fun to use? as i can see this debate going on for a while , i not overly worried about getting max DPS, i want it to be high, so i can make a good contribution, but a couple of thousand isn't going to worry me, i would want to play mostly for the fun, i not worried about the cost of the ship, it looks like people have each chosen differently, so it looks like there is on right or wrong choice, so what do people find more fun to use? the vesta, or escort?

depends on your playstyle. if you dont mind the turnrate, then the vesta has more "fun" potential, because of its versitality

No, turn rate doesn't really bother me, as in STFs a lot of what yu do is almost stationary, and as long as you have evasive maneuvers, there's no worries.
