aliens are just more fun to play i think. regen isn't OP because carapace is necessary. you can always run away back to a hive to heal up, which really shouldn't take too long unless you're an onos or a gorge. but carapace lets you keep those pres in the game, it's that extra buffer for you to run away properly.
