Non Vorcha and Excelsior cruisers are for Science and Engineers, that can jack their resistances.

Also, most people fly cruisers because they are so stupidly easy to stay alive in. Especially with RSP, RSF, and Miracle worker in their back pockets. Then those same lamecruiser captains can crank the damage up with broken FAW, EPTW, EPS power Transfer and Nadion Inversion. These are also the same lamecruisers that don't do their friggin job and heal the escort 9/10 times.
A DPS healer is a liability, a DPS cruiser is a liability 80% of the time, at least before FaW. Yeah you can get big numbers but we all now that is shame. I fly with cruisers and 8 of 10 times they have more kills (FaW) and slightly higher damage but I am the one they call when they need something dead.

Well not surprising given all the times old bugs return. First MMO that I've played that has that old bugs keep returning.

I don't fly a Tacs in a Cruisers, I fly them in Escorts.

But given whats said above proves my point I been conveying, things aren't balanced. If heals are nerfed, then perhaps the arguement would change in nerfing cannons and buffing angles. But right now, there is an overabundance in Escorts because its easier to survive and funner to play in.

Whats wrong with tacs in cruiser ? the only thing you need is EPtS3 + tactical team to drain dmg of two escorts. Anyone who crumbles under single escort barrage must doing something wrong.

My tac - galaxy-X doesnt have HE or TSS and yet i think it tank decently for the build. But surely the pengs hurt me :p

I don't have EPTS 3. I am glad I got in an EPTS 2 on my Healing Cruiser.

But it takes more than one Escort to take me down. But it's still quite doable to kill my Cruiser, that much is for certain. I blame Extend Shields 3, that doesn't help me at all.

I think I need to talk to Era about my inadqueacies.
