If a players builds his character to absorb tons of damage (30 dice is good, but not insane), then give him opportunities to do exactly that--it's fun to shine the spotlight on players and let them show off from time to time.  If you're looking for a way to challenge the character, use Reduce Attribute (Charisma) and a Mystic Adept to threaten him with a coma.  Playing to a character's strengths is great, but you risk escalation to the point that other characters who don't have nearly the same number of soak dice find themselves up against opposition using alphas with APDS ammo.

I agree. why punish the guy for following the rules. the game encourages characters who are specialist at thier niche. and 30 dice is not outrageous or game breaking.
