EPtS3 gives 30%...that would be 54.5%...

Give it 130 Shield Power (36.4%) with EPtS3...that's 55.5%..

Work in the 90% (either 10% bleed or 5% bleed/5% ether)...59.9%...

10 stack Elite Fleet Adapt shields?
15%
20%
36.4% (130 Shield Power)
90% (5% bleed/5% ether)

61.1% (w/o using EPtS3) to 3 energy types and 54.2% to the other 3...

Add in EPtS3? 72.8% / 67.9%
Even EPtS1? 68.1% / 62.5%

Then there's TSS, ExS...what have you...

What's the EPtS1/130 Shield Power w/o Fleet Shields? 47.8-47.9%...and how many folks are actually running 130 Shield Power? So the shield damage reduction's going to be lower than that...

That's why folks look at the Elite Fleet Shields and /facepalm...

Nerfing EPtS would all but require everybody run Elite Fleet Shields...
