# 1 Escorts Still the king?
01-25-2013, 10:09 AM
Been away. 6 months+

Have there been any improvements to make PvE better than just: Use Escort, DPS to win?

Have Sci/Engi ships became better than they were? In elite stfs, it really didn't matter how much hp you had, as the borg fired too many one shot invisible death torps. And playing science ships were next to useless, because every week seemed to contain even more nerfs to science powers that were being abused in pvp.

*Deep breath* I'm sure you mean science powers being used in the few remaining working combos don't you?

Science ships and powers are fine in PvE, it just takes a bit longer is all but the job gets done in the time available for things like optionals.

On the topic of PvP, personally I'd like to see that full impulse ramming speed kamikaze tactic brought back to PVP from when you could still use it at 100% hp. That was fun.

If your goal is to complete the STF quickly and efficiently then yes, Escorts are still King. Although some Aux2Bat DHC Monster cruisers are making a good challenge to said throne.
