But if we must rehash it once again, fine, sure, EPS3 is a selfish power. No doubt about it. If you are a team's healboat its far more valuable for a team to get Aux2sif or Extend shields.
However if one is already carrying those powers in a cruiser, I don't see any problem with going for EPS3 and enjoying the damage resistance buff that ability gives.
I'm certainly not putting the near worthless, ET3, on a boat. Ooooh a 10k hull heal, when an escort can destroy that in mere moments. In my opinion, once you've gotten your team heals Extend shields and Aux2sif sorted out, there really aren't many good Engineering LTC powers beyond EPS3.
I tank with the best of them in PVP and STFs, and if I'm in a cruiser, I will go out of my way to find a place for that power. It's simply too valuable, and I still have plenty of powers left over to throw at my allies. (Overlapping ETs, Tac Teams, Transfer Shields, Hazards...)
If all you do is Team PVP, then a case might be made for it, but otherwise... If you're taking cruisers in to Elite STFs, then on averages you're not doing anyone any favours. Get back in your escort and start shooting - because no one cares about shields or healing when 140k criticals are popping fully shielded hulls.
"L2P" indeed. You play your way, I'll play mine - but do not dismiss one of the best shield buff/heals in the game on account of "selfishness", because no amount of your "generous" bubblewrap is going to save me when that freight train hits me at 80 miles an hour
