As I've mentioned wholeheartedly throughout the thread...the Eng lacks team synergy. I've agreed on that point in multiple threads discussing Engineers.
2 Tac/3 Sci or even 3 Tac/2 Sci.
You've got SNB created gaps...which won't last long...so you need the spike from Tac on the controlled target.
The Eng can't SNB.
The Eng can't spike that target.
The Eng doesn't fit in well with the team environment.
What about healing? Yeah, it's called crosshealing. You're going to have it from your Sci and even the Tac can help out there. The Eng isn't needed for that. The Eng doesn't have anything that boosts healing abilities for others...hull healing with EFleet, but yeah - folks prefer the shield healing from SFleet.
So you understand that eng has nothing to look for in both teamwork pvp and 1vs1 pvp.
That's an improvement..
Now start to look for viable solutions..
