Escorts die in elite stfs sure but we are the ones doing damage too... The problem with playing the Mvam is that it looks just crap... and thats no fault of Cryptics.

Another problem with the multivector assault escort is how you become even more fragile after you split your ship up and then it takes forever until you can use that ability again.

But glass cannons or not, they're actually insanely fun to fly.

*Most* advanced escorts/MVAEs look like crap. I have a combo that I think looks really nice, TYVM.

IF you have the right consoles and the right skills your MVAE can be rather tanky. Especially if you keep moving. REMEMBER you can almost always get out of a bad situation which can save you. It will never be a Cruiser but it CAN be tough.

The only time I die in stf's, is by getting one shotted in the elites. Nothing you can really do about this, but I usually out tank any sci/cruisers in them anyways....

You need to adapt to the ship. I would advise you to use a hit and run strategy.

Escorts deal alot of dps and are faster then other classes of ships.

The Misshapen Brick may be unpleasant to look at but that is what happens when you base your ship around the Runabout hull plan.

What you're not looking at, is how much faster an escort kills things than another vessel, and the fact an escort is able to turn its facings much more rapidly. If anything, I feel the other ships are underpowered, particularly for elite pve content.

You should try looking at builds for escorts, there's a lot of good ones here in the forums, and if you're lucky or rich, the Jem Hadar escort is a tank as well. I've seen cruisers more fragile than that little bug haha.
