It's funny how wrong you are. I thought it was going to be useless too.

The reason it's so powerful - it stacks with everything because it's a debuff to the opponent's power. You literally make them do no damage for 25s. How is that NOT overpowered? It has nothing to do with the damage it does to them, it makes them stop hurting everyone.

Let me ask you this, what would you rather have? Any ability to boost your own shields is only going to be a marginal increase over the myriad of other shield/hull abilities cruisers already offer/provide. For the highest gain, you simply debuff the enemy instead of buffing yourself further.

Edit - how many extend shields do you need? I already have 2 and 2 RSPS on my negh var. If you're taking a third over aceton field you're simply a noob. Nothing more to be said. Actually, please take another ability over aceton field, you're just gimping yourself for pvp and making it easier for me.
