Cryptic, it's time you made Cruisers and Science Ships better at handling Burst Damage by these ships, or you going to call this Escorts Online?
Try utilizing some of these skills.

Aceton Field
Directed Energy Modulation
Auxiliary to Dampeners
Auxiliary to Structural

I suppose, Escorts being so OP is why I can break most of them like eggs meeting a hammer, with my sci huh?

How about you just learn how to play Azurian. We had no problems during the OPVP Pug Festival yesteraday. And we ran the gamut of ships and factions.

You don't ask for help, you don't consult what people are doing or ask for the proper counters. It's like you expect everyone's hull to crack at just the sight of your name.

I don't even know what he has, he's a good BoP hit & runner. The only thing that can feat him her is team mates using Scramble Sensors. And maybe better players than me.

# 18 Defiants make me nautious :)

Qeng: "Whenever I come-up against one of these beauties it becomes a matter of urgent necessity and pride to negate its opening salvo. "
Slow it down, box it in if possible, and try as I may, never and I mean never let it get behind me. Once that happens it's a forgone conclusion of the outcome.

Do they make me situp and pay attention - absolutely! Do I run in fear - sometimes its better to acknowledge my opponents tactical advantage, and pick my fights only when they suit me.

For the Engineer:

Quote:
Kohtke: "Catch an escort from behind or the side they melt like butter. In a cruiser, the best tactic I use is engine battery + evasive manu. + Direct Energy Modulation + Eject Warp Core + Chrotonic Mines, and I form a tight-circle manuever around them with 75% speed. Thats my ace - I have yet to meet a escort that can beat that wild card. "
Once they are trapped in the plasma cloud and they always do - I hit Borg Tractor + Miracle Worker + EPS Transfer and boom!

For the Scientist:

Quote:
Qeng: "If you happen to find yourself in a Carrier with a Defiant on your tail - make pretty sure you have Eject Warp Core II or III handy. It gives you that window of opportunity no other skill affords to move out of their line of fire. Also - Jam Sensors works well just as they break free. By then you should have at least 2x wings BOP on target. Worked for me countless times. By the time the defiant has his wits back, you pop Tyken Rift/ Gravity well and SNB, and if all goes well, someone when definitely come away with a bloody nose and his tail between his legs - hopefully not you "
For this to work well never underestimate the power of:

1.) Run on max aux + pop aux battery - this will aid all your science skills and speed up the rate of pet launch and boost hull repair.
2.) Brace for impact, the least used but underestimated.
3.) 25% speed + evasive while jam sensors to allow for postioning prior to TR/ GW & SNB

Learn how to Play? I know how to play this game, all I'm saying I'm tired of PvP being nothing but Defiants. At this rate Cryptic should get of Cruisers and Science Ships and make PvP "Escorts Online".

It's quite clear you don't honestly. Any and every power in the game is a problem for you, every ship class is a problem for you, aside from Cruisers with FAW which coincidentally is what you fly.

Either you're trolling the community or you just haven't figured it out yet, despite having been playing probably longer than I have.
