Most of us have already at least have one c-store ship and surely you would like to buy the improved version of that same ship too. Most players (as far as I experience it, use the AE because of the higher dps possibilities.

With the new fleet version of the AE you loose a very good BOFF layout for cannons and you are forced now into a layout for beams. Surely we could use other ships, but many of us would loose than the ability for the c-store console in the new ship. (I guess that can not be the point).

If you are using the MVAE layout, you are just handicapped. This layout just prevents you from the maximum dps possible. Cannons do just the most dmg possible. You can love or hate that fact.

It reminds me of an solider who was earlier a killer and now, i'll break his hands and force him to fight again...
Trading a single Lt. Comm. Tac slot for a Lt. Comm. Sci. slot is hardly the end of the world. Put TSSIII in there and become uber survivable. Put viral matrix in there with the right doffs and bring that fragile PVP escort to a complete stop. Put GW in there and play crowd control. I have both and always use the MVAE version. I also have no understanding about why on earth you would put beams on a MVAE unless it was to take advantage of the unrealistic ship movement in PVP. Beams on an escort just give me horrible flashbacks about pugging Elite STFs.

I would trade that slot every time and everywhere for a Lt. Comm Tac. Because you can still get a few very useful abilities in, which help with the creation of a lot damage. And thats the main purpose of an escort.

Maybe you didn't took a closer look on the layout. The MVAE layout is so clearly designed for beams, that even you should not be able to miss that. But I agree, every one who mutilates an escort with beam weapons should be banned from escorts....
