I am pretty sure than Tactical Officers can be more effective in a cruiser compared to an Eng Officer being in an escort.
Does anyone here have Tac Officer classes and also use Cruisers for PVP?
Would a Tac Officer Cruiser have a good chance against a Eng Officer Cruiser or would the Eng have major advantages? Or would it depend on the players skill/what ship and build they are using?
I'm a tactical officer and I use a Galor in PvP
Assuming identical ships, equipment, and identical skill levels... it would still really depend on allot on where the fight takes place on the gear table. If we're talking about fresh 60's with nothing but white gear the Engineer takes it hands down. Soaking 5k dps isn't an issue when you can heal your self at virtually the same rate. But that all changes the instant you start talking about exotic high end gear... heals and resists have a soft cap, dps doesn't. So while early on it's a fair fight... later in life the Tac get's the edge because his specials contribute to something that isn't capped.
