I'm still learning lots about PvP, I do have some previous PvP experience, and as well as attending the boot camp. I generally do average in PvP, and in most 1 vs 1 matches with friends/fleetmates I've come out victorious.
That is except against one player. I believe I was up against a Vesta/Sci capt, and he used runabouts as his pets. Barely could scratch his hull, the sci power debuffs he threw were quite overwhelming, and he added more insult to injury by using chroniton torps to debuff my speed and turn rate, as well as target subsystem attacks. **sigh**
I have APO to counter the tractor beams/holds, and I always run my engines at 50, with my capt skills and gear is currently boosted to 66.
The only ship I use to fill the escort role is my Jem'Hadar Attack Ship. I just want to see what constructive feedback I can get, as I do want to improve as a PvP'er. So my question is, was there no possible way to win?
as much as i hate to admit it, escorts should have a strong weakness to sci powers. i say this, wile HATING VM more then any other ability right now. escorts are so hardened against conventional damage and are so quick, hard to hit, and nearly impossible to pin down, that they need a weakness of some kind.
sci ships can be spiked in half though, you will have fleeting moments to strike, make it count. of course if your on a team, your going to be in much better shape. a good sci/sci can be very close to unbeatable for a normal escort
sci ships have a very high shield modifier (1.40-1.45 in most of the cases), with a decent build in a 1vs1 is almost imposible that an escort can kill them, unless the sci player is doing something wrong
1vs1 PvP have little to non sense, is team oriented.
