Honestly, all this getting hot and bothered is from the sole fact that people have different ideas of what makes a balanced match. Hence, what seems courteous and sportsman-like to one person seems like malicious rudeness to another. That's all. And neither is necessarily right.
Lies! Don't be fooled! Don't be tricked! Everybody's right and I'm wrong.

A Fleet Torp'varo has an advantage over a non-cloaking Escort. Even while blipping, there is no loss of the Bonus Defense. While it loses the +25% Ambush bonus, it's always sporting the +15% Cloak bonus. It's losing +10% damage from Ambush attacks.
My Fleet T'varo has over 40k hull. The shield mod is 0.99 should I get decloaked.
Add in Singularity Abilities...etc...
The T'varo is not a B'rel...
Well, maybe that's influencing my views on things. . .I guess I still assume that battlecloak = squishy, when we know that's not the case for the Romulans. Old habits, etc.
