The EPtX change is still a difficult one to judge. In one way it does give more reasons to not be self reliant and to want a healer with you. Helps make Escorts a little less tanky at least in the form of shield recovery and defense, but not touching their ability to speed tank.
The EptX change hurt all slow turning ships (Carriers and Cruisers remember) and the RCS change, while nice, won't make as much of a difference from what I can tell truthfully.
From what I can tell, the RCS change is what has been asked for for ages. It is coupled with a change that cripples the very ship type that the RCS change is intended to help, with the net effect making the situation considerably worse.
