Or am I doing something wrong.

I used to have 6 ranks in it and managed to hold aggro just fine, I've respecced and gone all out with it, and lately I'm struggling to hold aggro.

Sometimes its an escort with 9 ranks too (which baffles me), but not always.

Is it working properly or am I missing something?

I`d say yes.
Purely by holding aggros while other escorts are pounding on my target.
It works best if you go in first and get a bit of a headstart on the escorts.
if they fire the first shot it is usually with an alpha and puts a huge igno wall there for you to overcome.
It's easier to hold aggro then pulling it from a blazing escort.

Alot more players eem to be going Threat Control and SS Hull Plating for the combined damage resistance it gives and that may be whats causing you to lose agro?

Wouldn't agro jump around alot if everybody is using SS Threat Control?

I'll have to ry going in first then. Often I can hold aggro, but the times I can't there seems to be little explanation for.

I imagine that in that scenario, then DPS starts becoming more of a factor. Sometimes it is an escort with 9 ranks so they're out DPSing me (for the sake of about 9% res :/). Theres just been more instances lately I can't explain, unless maybe some escort captains have been fibbing to me.

Yep, ignore me.

Seems a couple of captains were fibbing, I've been consistantly holding aggro when I'm the only one with 9 ranks in TC.

Unless an escort alpha's before I get involved, then I need a couple of seconds...

Nothing to see here, move along...

Well, I don't really know. I have 6 points in TC (Eng/Odyssey) and 90% of the time I hold the aggro in STFs (normal, though). From time to time there are escorts getting the aggro for some reason and they still manage to survive, making me a bit obsolete so I don't knw if those guys are either pro gamers who just now what they are doing or I do something wrong

I think you really need the full 9 points in threat control, otherwise dps escorts have a good chance to get aggro back.

I run six ranks of it with my Dreadnought, keep in mind i have it built like a giant escort, and hold dps 80-90% of the time unless a cruiser gets into the target first in which case it takes me a bit to pull it back to me.
