Tbo, I disagree with this. But, it may be a matter of agreeing on terms. I believe there are RPS Boff skills and tactics in this game, just a lot more than 3 to pick from. For example, imo from a general macro level continous dps > spike heals, spike heals > spike dps, spike dps > continuous heals, continous heals > continous dps, etc. There are some exceptions to the rules, but that just makes things more interesting imo. There are times when Cryptic makes OP exceptions (seemingly w/o any thought and/or care of it's impact on PvP).

I also believe Eve Online has a good balance and variety of RPS ship types/tiers. Some ships may have highly specialized roles, but they're exceptional in those roles, eg Sister Probe Launching Covert OPs. Other ships can be jack of all trades master of none, eg Domi.
