Being as ESCORTS not CARRIERS are public enemy number 1 it is an issue.
Anyone with BFAW, CSV or torpedo spread can kill pets. Big whoop de doo.
What can a sci do to an escort? As it is now energy drain is our only good offensive skill against escorts (or any other decent build), and this is a problem.
Gravity well is just a good example. It can be ignored with impunity, even if fully specced in the skill with supporting doffs and a full load of consoles. A tac does not have to invest nearly as much to get results much, much, much more substantial.
This concept that sci is there to just heal and debuff for escorts is retarded.
Escorts have too much dps too many hard counters to sci skills and too much resist to them.
Whats the counter or resist to Alpha strike + bo3 + crf3?
I would be interested in hearing what some do with their grav wells. Overall I'm pleased with them in PVP, but the hold seems to max at a certain point. With that, most escorts are able
to fly right out of it. That said, sometimes they pull the whole group and it's pretty freaking funny. Perhaps it's the points in resist skills and/or the engine may have something to do with that. The fleet engine seems to have the speed to pull right out and I'm guessing the omega energy wake may be some of the reason OP is complaining.
There are other means to hold a enemy, so sometimes hax0r it and stack a few slows/holds on them in the grav well. Maybe add some AOE/dots?? profit?
