Well let's start by thinking. I know it's hard for some people, but lets look at the situation for PvP shield choice.
1) Escorts have, by design, the squishiest shields compared to the other Fed ships.
2) Escort energy allocation should prioritize dps and speed/maneuverability.
3) Escorts are primary targets for Klinks, and will be targeted first before any other ships.
4) Klinks rely on quick burst damage for kills.
So knowing those facts, you get to choose between:
A) Shields that have less strength but more regen (protect best against low-dps sustained damage)
B) Shields that have higher strength and less regen (protect against high-dps burst damage)
Which do you choose?
So keep on loading those regen shields, Fed escort pilots. You just keep making my job that much easier. And for that, I salute you.
