Not that I really mind, I enjoyed that it was challenging, but... with the new STFs giving you basically no reason to run more than 1 or 2 a day, this is just going to funnel people into running nothing but ISE.
I'm not so sure it's the plasma dot. It's possible, but I do run hazard emitters as much as I can.

I wouldn't mind higher difficulty in the form of more incoming damage, but this is a really poor way to do it. Options for hull defense are much more limited than for shields. There is no skill involved, it's all just waiting on cooldowns. There are more abilities that affect shielding, in addition to facing and balance.
