I'm sure you all notice this trend. Because Escorts are so good in PvP, the majority of players are trading in their Cruisers and Science Ships for Escorts.


So from here on out, STO is now known as Escort's Online!

Well, at least you have something to ...chat about. But its nice to see some habbits never change Azurian. Your famous song of escorts are overpowered, cruisers are weak..is evergreen on this forums since the launch of this game.

Cruisers just take alot more skill to play well, compared to escorts. I must say that i have seen only handful of good cruiser pilots, which truly knew how to use all the toys available to them.

LOL!!!!

Actually it is the contrary which is why I find it funny. I see more science ships than anything else BY FAR in PVP, and I do A LOT of PVP. Heck I don't even do PVE. I will admit second to science ships is escorts and escorts are growing but what you do not realize is that its all science/escorts, the tac/escorts pop is diminishing rapidly. SNB is so game-breaking it is the only obvious cause, which has nothing to do with the ship type. It is the same as a Sci/BoP. Science are the only one's able to hop into a different ship and completely out-perform anyone else in that chair by an extreme amount.

Yeah in PUGS this is now happening a lot (there is even a Fed side fleet that all group together and use all escorts).

It's kind of amusing honestly.

Of note, apparently our resident psychic LordTareq already called this one a while back:

So what was it before Escorts?
Because I've always seen escorts in PvP, even before 1.1.
This strikes me as a self-fullfilling whine-ery and nothing more.

Like I said, what they are observing is the zerg like move that all the old sci players and the big movement of newly created sci players from sci vessels into escorts. This is because, just like a sci/BoP, with the new SNB changes, a sci/escort can outperform any class and ship combo in game by exponential amounts, and in all departments.

I love this video. Saw it a couple of weeks ago.

I honestly don't think this game can be balanced any more. That and Cryptic is going to be making a 3rd MMO.. and drop the most Lucrative IP that they could have ever put their greasy hands on into the forgotten lands of CO and make "Baking Online" or some garbage that nobody will buy.

I don't think they really care either.

Orly?

I think they're pretty same except one got a cloak, which is not big deal.

Otherwise, show me new Sci BOP build you think can outperform all ships.
