I disagree.

I think what makes weapons like BAs feel antiquated in design is the advent of all of the passive healing/resistance.

These additions are basically the bane of pressure damage (I think with Fleet Shields being the biggest offenders possibly).

"Remove Burst" might as well be "remove escorts" - as escorts are "inadequate" healers and ""inadequate" debuffers/controllers.
