Depending on which game mode, no matter how aware you are, you will die if you ain't tank enough. Specifically survival in which the area is covered by enemies in every direction. CC is becoming more relevant to not just die and when defending something. Hence the revival of frames such as Vauban.
Nyx has gotten her own little niche too with the ability to tear off any steel path effects from the enemy. Effectively giving her the best armor strip which can also remove shields, be it only on a single target. Tho I think she could still be buffed more.
