Pretty much this...

Damage numbers doesnt matter, healing numbers doesnt matter.

Kills and deaths, and in a lesser degree damage per kill, is what most skilled PvPers are looking at.

Personally Id rather go with a teammate with 300k damage, 10 kills and 0 deaths than one with 800k damage, 5 kills and 5 deaths.

*Edit*

Oh, and just for the record... Engineer is the worst of the 3 classes for damage.. You have no damage buffs (only indirectly by virtue of your powerboosting skills), no debuffs and no spike..

You have amazing survivability skills, but thats about it.
