I pushed the support function to the extreme. This was especially true at the time when the skill tree was such that I did not put any points at all in torpedoes and beams. With the current skill tree, you can't push to one side as much.
It's a different and fun way to play. Not much use in PvE. I've had many thanks from KDF players whose life bar was low and suddenly see a Varanus pop in to heal them.
It can definitely do what its name says and play hardcore "Support" if you want it to. I have mine set up to be able to dish it out and heal. It is meant to cripple and confuse its enemies while draining them dry of all their important power... especially to engines and shields LOL... Meanwhile my platforms and other tricks keep my buds alive. They love me in RA's, PvP, and Mirror Universe runs.
