When you use sci and tac capt as a perfect example of synergy, thus tendentiously excluding engies, it is only logical to conclude that engies have no business in PVP in general, team or otherwise.

The doctrine was to have tac captains in an escort and engies in a cruiser. I took two school examples and showed that even when an engie is in his "designated" vessel, he still can't win. He can pilot an escort as well, sure, but with the same conclusion at the end.

There is a flavor of victory and loss. Unless you enjoy in STFs or redoing missions like a 12 yo playing WoW, you can't actually win against a tac escort, unless the one is being piloted by a Rain man..

My position on that is very clear and always has been. Cryptic needs to balance the game.

True, some like to play just for the sake of playing, but others don't like when odds are not in their favour and when others are clearly favourized over the rest.
