Nope. You declared a 1v1 situation. Eng vs. Tac. I disagreed with that. That's separate from my agreeing with folks that the Eng lacks team synergy in comparison to a Tac or a Sci. Two different things.

Why is the Eng in a Cruiser? Read your thread title: Engineer in a PVP escort

Would you be horribly offended if I laughed until I wet myself at that?

There are five abilities that each has that adds flavor to the roles and classes a player chooses to play.

You may need to reevaluate your position on that...just saying.

Different players desire different things.

I have no issue with my Engineers (have four of them - half of my toons) in solo PvE, group PvE, solo PvP, PUGland PvP, and even Ker'rat...but yeah, I'm not going to be looking to play them in organized matches. They lack that kind of team synergy for PvP.
