# 1 The End of the Cannon/Scort?
03-11-2014, 11:06 AM
Hello All,

I would like to know who believes that the age of a Classic Cannon/Bo Escort is at an end, meaning it is no longer the premiere damage dealer and no longer King in PvP.

It hasn't been for a while now. But some skilled teams stretched it out for a bit.

2 years ago: Cannonscorts the only way to go.

Today: Multiple ways to dmg delivery, cannonscorts not at the top of the food chain any longer. They still work if embedded in fitting team setup, against teams that has little defense against a classic bug swarm.

Ill let you find who is the math genious who thinks that 45 degrees weapons should be 100 worse than 250 degrees beams.

Also cannons are not canon (Deep space nice and all star trek movies were in your imagination).Wars are done with exploration ships.

STO is unique in the mmo world thou..The first mmo that is 100% made and designed by roleplayers for roleplayers.

abrupt damage at the right time gets kills most reliably. unless theres a LOT of faw users, but just 1 or 2 wont really do anything but blow up his own scoreboard numbers.

To the OP yeah Regular DHC/BO escorts are old news but DHC/BO/PB/ISO/Casc Tet escorts are pretty good now.
