I am an engineer flying an escort however I hear from countless others that this is the "wrong combo". People say:

Tac = Escorts
Eng = Cruisers
Science = Science

Am I the only one who sees the benefit of mixing and matching? As a(n) eng officer in a escort I can take a much harder beating that my tac officer brethren.

Am I wrong?

Its your $15 a month, play how you want to play. If it works for you and you are having fun, thats all that matters.

This right here. I run a Tac/Cruiser for my main, and, contrary to what some min/maxers say, I'm not gimped in any way.

If you guys weren't flying the wrong combo, you'd hear about how you're flying the wrong combo about 90% less often.

As long as you are having fun, then I say fly with whatever combo you want.

I used to get "build" advice all the time in COH, I tended to ignore the comments because I was enjoying my characters....

Well said. I am a tac officer and flew a sci ship for all of Captain and enjoyed the hell out of it. I was not gimped in any way. You just have to manager your BO's skills.

I've never been told I'm flying the wrong combo, until today, when I got involved in a thread where someone was mad that Tactical Officers can't train Science skills to Science Bridge Officers.

Until then, I was happy being a Cruiser with Go Down Fighting (in a Cruiser, this skill actually makes sense, as you can get crazy bonus damage when you get really low on health), Attack Pattern Alpha (I can actually turn a T4 and T5 Cruiser) and Ramming Speed (because it's crazy amounts of the awesome).

Afterwards, though, yeah, I'm still happy.

What he said. (I'm a tactical officer flying a heavy cruiser atm)

When I was levelling a rogue back when WoW was new, people were constantly giving me crap because I used dual maces (on my server 99% of the rogues were dagger rogues, the rest were swords). However, I loved my maces because to me, nothing says beatdown better than a zombie ninja (undead rogue) smacking you around with a couple of big-a$$ hammers.

You can take build advice, or ship class advice, but once ou start doing things because someone else tells you that's the way it should be, you might as well just hand over your account and let them play for you, imo.

I am going Engineer Escort, Tac Cruiser, and Sci Sci. So I would say ignore it.
