you can tank pretty goods.....but do damages you cant.

even with rolling betas and crf 3 and bo3's ect ect.... you just can't buff or debuff enough for it to be viable.

you will really be hella hard to kill, thats for sure. but who wants to be a escort with no teeth?

have fun kill bad guys!

ive seen eng gurumbas that were basically invincible, and with 4 heavy disruptor cannons and turrets backed up with nadion imersion, they can lay down some of the heaviest sustained fire their is, its just not as peeky. their assault is withering, its only a mater of time before you succumb to it or chase him off which is not easy with his built in heals. ive seen a couple of these gurumbas and they are usually the top scorer on their team.

i'll piggy back off that and say hells yeah the goomba can pull it off better than any ship in the game can. that javelin gives you damn good damage.

but imo, escorts need the burst, which engineer capatins lack the innates to do. you can heal more and do the same amout of suppression in a beam cruiser.....its just not as fun!

Bingo. At least in the defiant for my engineer, the ship will actually respond quickly when I tell it to turn, unlike those boring bricks this game calls cruisers. Ugh, no fun for me! I recently tried out cruisers on my feds again a couple weeks ago, and after the novelty wore off, I was again bored out of my mind. I'm simply an escort guy, I guess.
