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.
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.
