I'm thinking it goes like this (assuming both players are of similar skill level/build quality):
E = Escort
S = Science
C = Cruiser
E v E = Even Fight
E v S = Stalemate
S v C = Stalemate
S v S = Stalemate
C v C = Stalemate
E v C = Cruiser will nearly always win
Not saying that this will always happen, but 9 out of 10 times it will probably be like this.
Damn I always forget to run in 1 v 1. I just do not like running it is like a mulligan. That is why I am above average in an escort. I guess that is one bad habit that is left over from being a cruiser pilot for so long.
Now this thread is a typical example of someone making a suggestion and a bunch of nay sayers sharpens their forks, because .... well, because ....
No one is being forced to do 1vs.1, and i think it's a good idea.

Stop trying to be good at 1v1 and start thinking about team setups. While you're at it, get a good team. QEW and TSI have demonstrated how well those synergies can work in a great 5 player team.
Yeah MMOs are all about team playing, using voice chat, doing Raids (STFs), and bashing people who like to play different.
