its gotten pretty old. the uptime on FBP is the problem, they cant be killed in the window between FBP being ready. there are to many abilities and clickies that prevent death totally in that time period. the only counter to these sci ships is more sci ships, shooting them isn't an actual option. and with so many running around with 400 particle these days, that 50% shield penn is total BS. you can kill yourself in the first fireing cycle of your cannon alpha.
400 in particle Gens? How are people rocking that? About the best I get these days is low to mid 300s.
seems im the only one whose escort relies on weapons to do damage, whose fleet patrol isnt a2b and whose sci isnt fbp full partigens spam
...nope, you are not ... but, as for me, i've hardly played the last days . seriously: all over the place, probably you're right, but same is for bo nowadays.

PvP improvements, coming since 2010 lol
. . .
I go away from game for two months (vacation) and this is first thing I read about when I return, domination of sci ships (or maybe rather captains?) and FBP...
Must be something wrong with my PvP build (control/support Fleet Recon Sci) as I'm not managing to do that well and have problems just staying alive against vapers, using FBP to ward them off...
