frigates without SO do not have sufficient flux capacity to deal any real damage on they own and only can be used as support.
Name of the game is bypassing shields. Hyperion, phase frigates and to limited extent Scarab can do it.

Also, non-SO Melee Lasher overwhelms enemy shields about as well as SO build. It's just way more risky than SO build, because you are not fast enough to reliably close the distance.

Of course, all of above is player-piloting only. AI lacks finesse to properly pilot frigates.
