Agreed. If you play your escort like you are mugging the other guy iin a dark alley, you will likely do well.

Your doing it wrong.

Its called Tradeoffs, Superior killing ability for inferior defences. but i will say that the defiant refit got shafted with that 3rd tac slot, the ens one, u actually have to use beams on the thinbg to make used of it, i mean, comon' what escort captain in their right mind uses beams.

back to topic, your doing it wrong, escorts in pvp are better suited as oppertunists rather than consistant damage dealers, hit and run tactics, just pray you dont get hit with a gravity well. cruisers are exactly what they are ment to be, annoying and time consuming to kill, and science job is to really mess your day up, tykens rifts tends to screw sci guys right over, sap their aux power and their easy pickings, just try to stay behind the thing.

If Escorts got shafted, How come I always seem to being fighting against the "good" ones then?
Where are these shafted Escorts and do they play PvP?

I use beams, and I can take out a carrier in one pass... guess that means I suck.

# 75 Defiant escort

The defiant should be like STO's BOP. We don't need the universal ship slots, but I'm suggesting just the battle cloak. Yeah I know we are not Klings.. but if they would give us at least battle cloak and not just normal cloak the Defiant would go from good to great.

It already has cloak, and before all you BoP people cry about what I just said it would balance out the pvp game play a lot more.

There is no more peace treaty that says Star fleet can no longer use cloaking technology, because we are at war with the fractions that banded star fleet from having cloaking technology.

Yes, speaking ones mind when it is against this craptic game will earn you a ---demerit.

FYI, using that "B" word is a "B" offence.

(sorry about the psuedo-jack)

Whoa...10 minutes after I posted this he got tagged by the Ban Hammer. Wonder if that will improve his cheery disposition?
My disposition is simple. This game shares less in common with the IP than it actually has IN common.
I am not alone in this viewpoint. I will continue to post my concerns regarding this games deficiencies.
If this bothers you, please, feel free to NOT reply to my posts. That is as much your right as is mine to
post.
