# 1 Escorts need Cloak
02-01-2010, 06:14 AM
The title of the thread says it all. As the Glass cannon of the federation I do not mind having weak shield/hull ect. However in PVP let me say it again for the slow ones PVP it is impossible to survive the BOP alpha strike. I dont even mind if the cloak only worked out of combat but its rediculous to spend and entire pvp match on the respawn screen.

Please save your "Its not Cannon" "L2P" "group up" ect ect. This is coming from someone who played beta and has a good team of friends who are running cruisers and science ships. Even with all the healing buffing ect the BOP alpha strike is not survivable in PVP by escorts.

man, itīs like saying "we need time travelling capability on our starships ASAP!!!!"

Cloaking WILL not be standard issue ever on fed ships.

Perhaps, if you get VERY lucky, they decide to make cloaking devices a 5-part device which MUST be put in the science, engineering, tactical, device and one weapon slot.

I wonder if you named your starship U.S.S. Pegasus they'd left you have a phasing cloak that would let you travel into the asteroids the NPCs can shoot you from, but you can't shoot them!

Mask Energy Signature I is available to science officers at ensign rank. It's the Feds version of a cloaking device.

I would agree to a console that did this that was escort only. But from you over blown pov you must play klingon.

okay, most "WAH WHA WHA ESCORTS ARE TOO WEAK" posts I sigh at and close ASAP. This one I agree with, escorts do need a cloak. Its been how many years? romulus exploded, klingons are at war with us, and we STILL wont make cloaking devices? Either buff escorts shields (as all fed ships have more shields than other people) or yes, give em a cloak.

I think the Defiant class should have a cloak, that's in keeping with Cannon, but other escorts should not.
