I see where you're coming from. I play an Eng/RSV mostly.
Some matches, I'm falling asleep at the keyboard, just mashing spacebar and throwing a heal or two around every now and then. Other matches, though, I'm frantically throwing everything I've got to teammates and aching for RSF to come off of CD.
It all depends on what kind of match you're thrown in, but on average (imo), the game has taken a turn towards more of a yawn-fest thanks to the new gearsets/DOffs. Anyone and everyone can tank. Even a Tac/Defiant can be one tough cookie with 3/4 Borg + MACO shield, a few Shield Distribution DOffs, and some of those nifty ones that reduce the CD of EPtS.
Hull tanking is meh, but shield tanking is even more ridiculous now than it was before.
