I like it when they do this!

It saves me from having to cut throttle to get the but huggers in my forward arc and gives me more time to pound them .

every once in a while when someone scrambles me I will purposely tractor an escort so I can extend on him.

he may not like it but he's not dying while that cone and line are on him.

So basically: While jammed, escorts must obey leash laws within 5k of Faithborn :p.

I fly an Escort and anytime I've been tractored I just pivot easily and bring my cannon to bear on the tractoring ship.

The only time it's inconvenient is when the PvP gangs buddies all but hump me cause that's just PvP in this game.

The tractor beam holds me at a perfect range so I can keep firing.

I think all STO ships should leak an invisible version of Venting Warp Plasma to keep all those but humps away!

if you can turn you can fly away, tractors kill your turning momentum as well. Additionally, any player that tractors you while your in a firing arc on him is an idiot.

And that still doesn't stop certain players from tractoring cruisers which never have a firing arc not facing them...

Its pretty fine to tractor escort facing you, IF you face it with cruiser also. Hold it, shoot all weapons and RAM him. A cruiser with full speed can ONE-SHOT any escort or science ship if they have the shield facing down.
