Why bother healing when the Mogai/Valdore console exists?
You know, I made some PvE people rage in the Romulan forums just by pointing that out. They think it's working as intended that a single console makes shield healing powers redundant. Combine this with the 2-piece Borg bonus and you won't have to bother with healing at all in PvE.
I constantly create shield heals between 10k-50k to all facings with this console. It's so broken I had to put it off my Mogai because it felt like cheating in PvP.
I loved to play healer, hell most of my toons to the date were eng/cruiser captains.
Since S7 there is little point, and less with every new update. Frnkly - when escort can keep itself alive with passives, consoles and elite/whatever shield/weapon proc; and sci can add to this low rank slots with pretty good HoTs why should one bother with it? One reason less to even try VA PvP when you want to fly eng.
Low rank is a bit different cause there is no endgame stuff, but then most people read this forum and know that they will be useless once they jit VA. And most is not constantly rerolling to stay on low levels. So...

I like my sci to be cc first. But with the kick in the nuts of most high level sci powers... Having all my engs be healers and my sci focus on healing as well is just too limiting. Also for all the rep BS i need to PvE, what good is my healer there (except for CE)? iTs just no fun taking 15 min for something my offensive guy can do in 5.
So in short: Everything is WAD, balance sweetspot is achieved. Systems has created the form of lolspace they always seem to have wanted. My toons are boxed....
I still have a healboat around complete with an eng captain in defiance of current balance as and when I'm not in a DPS cruiser mood, also for when I am feeling really defiant and/or evil I have a disable sci.
The funny thing from my point of view is that all three of these are far more fun than my DPS tac/scort
