75% of PVP is cruisers.
50% of PVP is Science vessels.
-25% of PVP is Escorts.

Interesting... for me there are too many cruisers around but I barely see any sci ships. Damn cruisers... always surviving my tries to strip their shields. And if I manage it they don't have the courtesy to blow up after a tricobalt hit.

Nerf cruisers... j/k

Either you're trolling the community or you just haven't figured it out yet, despite having been playing probably longer than I have.
I'm sorry but as long as I'm not breaking any rules of conduct, I am free to give feedback on matters of gameplay, popular or unpopular. And I am expressing my frustration of players favoring the Defiant and imbalancing gameplay.

Now if you don't like my feedback, then you are free to put me on your ignore list. That or Cryptic goes in their files and gives me all PVP accolades, then I wouldn't have any reason to PVP anymore.

Not sure where you get those figures from but to me its more like 40% Cruisers, 10% Science, and 50% Escorts. If you go in a C&H Match, you will find at least 2 Science Ships on the Federation side while the majority are Escorts.

Klingon side is at least 2-3 Escorts at any given time.

i have seen nothing to indicate everybody is flying escorts or defiants in particular, and i see nothing wrong with the defiant itself as a ship.

Same here.

I do get the impression they are a poplar choice for Escort captains... but so is the MVAM Prometheus.

Why? because they are both (to one degree or another) iconic and well liked ships sporting their used-on-screen abilities.

Its the same reason this is essentially the 'most popular ships of the federation VA' list;
  • Defiant
  • Prometheus
  • Galaxy
  • Galaxy-X
  • Sovereign
  • Excelsior
  • Intrepid
  • Nebula

Notice the commonalities? All iconic or well-liked ships that had screen time in the shows/movies.
No mystery or imbalance behind any of this, just fan love for specific ship designs.

Can someone explain to me plz - since when is the defiant better than a barely same specced BoP or raptor? i don't see such a big difference .

and like the others above me said - there are mostly cruisers in pvp - especially these tac/cruisers - i love them.

also most of the ships give you 12 powers to use. the only difference is where. i cant see how anyone could find the defiant OP or overused. that sucker is hard to fly man. i know a few great escort/bop pilots...and they smash heads. but there are WAY many more great cruiser and sci caps out there. by numbers and a year of PVP and 3 VA's thats what i see man.

i suggest if you can handle the 1'st burst carry the green dipey and a tac team. that will get you outa 2. run target weapons sys. and you've just rendered all escorts pointless.

and while im at it have one of your escorts fly target aux on your enemy's sci ships. after that the zombies can do what they want, with no dps or interference support you've really got your enemy at a disadvantage.

edit: this applies everywhere in the game. for all powers that are not broken.

its just teamwork and gameplanning man.

see you on the battlefield

Dear Cryptic,

The OP's self serving opinion and one sided observations do not reflect the experience or expectations of the greater PVP community. I'm glad that we are all free to express our opinions, and I certainly wouldnt want anyone to stop. I just hope anyone reading these things approach them with a healthy skepticism.

Thank you.

Good thing I fly a raptor I guess I get to sit this nerfbat swinging out. Besides a few escorts, 99% of all escorts are killable. MVAM and Fleets being the toughest, raptor next because of the console lay out witht eh defiant being 3rd. If you count the BoP as an escort then it would fall in line with the MVAM but depends ont he Boff layout. Though it definitely feels like the raptor had something done to it season 4 it turns much quicker than it did season 3.
