I love flying cruisers I really do however I can not find a single reason to justify playing one in PvP when I compare it to my escort class...


Can someone give me a reason for a RA5 fed to fly anything but an escort?

cruisers can heal for substantially larger amounts than escorts can.

But they cannot out heal the dps of an escort. Plus extend shields puts your RSP on a global cd

Actually, yes, they can.

My question to you is, are you looking for an answer, or stating a fact of the game by asking if cruisers are useful.

Becaue cruisers are the only ones keeping the battle going when all the escorts are dead and respawning.

i have a bop with only a couple of heals and sadly i all to often see i am near the top of the healing lists, sometimes the top. Granted a lot of that will have gone towards keeping my sorry arse alive but i see cruisers with what i can only consider pitiful heal amonts.

I have seen some cruisers on both sides do some incredible work keeping themselves and others up, if they can do it, then it just shows it can be done. Next time you are in a group with one of those try asking them what they do, you will find most of the time it is not magic. There is a surprisingly small step between a bad player and a decent player and a decent player and a good player.

Good dps is required, but good cruisers win games.

That is not true... I've been in several matches where a cruiser more than survived an attack by me and other Escorts pounding its shield, and yet it still took us out.
