Uh ... I don't know if you'd specified "cruisers," earlier, Mr. Ronin. Anyway cruisers actually have slightly limited utility in the warzone, first because of the swarms of smaller ships that make basically anything but a destroyer-fit cruiser impractical, but also because they only fit into about half the plexes. This limits their applicability compared to basic destroyers (75%) or frigates (100%).
(Also, yes, I gather she's pretty good.)
I never specified ship type beyond "Alpha" accessibility. I find it hard to believe one Destroyer could survive swarms of alpha ships, all egos aside, at some point their combined dps surpasses what any solo destroyer can withstand.
The drones give additional firepower but against a swarm of twenty, thirty, forty, or fifty ships how long would they last?
Not to even mention the logi capabilities of the attacking swarm or their drones all targeting the solo doomed Dragoon Destroyer. A solo ship against a swarm of alpha piloted ships would perish, not even Titans take the field without support.
Kiss ass as much as you decide is appropriate but no one is "good" enough to defeat math.
The solo Dragoon Destroyer against a swarm of alpha piloted ships is toast, not without exacting a few kills possibly, but they would not be going home except by pod express. To think otherwise is childishly foolish.
