The major issues with AP, the condensed version:

Ion gas cyllinder is required for survivability and guard.

The big reasons to go AP (increased combat mobility and heat management) are tied to HEGC which is currently abysmal.

Retractable blade does lackluster damage for the focus the AP tree has on it.

Flamethrower is nigh impossible to use effectively in pvp in its current incarnation.

Pyrotech does everything AP does better except the afformentioned combat mobility and heat management. But that's somewhat rectified by degauss and shortened vent heat timer.

In many instances shieldtech gets greater mobility in the form of jet charge and if you with to take it, an extra 30% movement speed after using jet charge.
