So you see this massive redundancy because of new players finding out that it's easy to die in PVP.

And that's really what it is. No matter what side you're on ... you die fast in PVP. That's the whole point of it. And it takes time to adjust to.
A big part of the issue is that you *need* to adjust to it. There are ways to avoid dying, but sometimes you need to trade out a cool offensive Sci or Engi power for some sort of healing, and sometimes you just need to run away. The PvE part of the game usually doesn't require you to run away to win, so a lot of people just don't seem to get that in PvP you sometimes need to take cover and let your cooldowns refresh.
