This games mechanics aren't wound that tight. It would perhaps require people that want to play a "hybrid" to utilize a proper ship instead of trying to Tank and gank in a Galaxy. It would also push those hybrids to actually use their healing, support, and debuff skills to the betterment of teammates. So a Vesta that's doing some hybrid things that's actually throwing out heals, doing sensor scans, throwing out legit damage, tanking, tossing some control around, etc is a very doable thing and harder difficulty doesn't change that at all. But the pilot has to play that hybrid role properly and to its full advantage to the benefit of the whole team
