A pug, however, could never hope to match that. Each member would bring a fairly similar mix of TT, EptS, ET etc. Wouldn't we effectively punish them for sharing heals, while granting premades even more powerful copies of the same abilities?

I for one would be weary of such a change.

*flame suit on*

To be clear, I still think Science Fleet needs a balance pass vis a vis the others.
Well as it is now, that's how it is done for debuffs. One team member uses APB III, another APB II, and another APB I and they stack. But if they all use APB III then they don't stack. The idea is that if APB I, II, & III are all cast one on target then only the strongest debuff sticks and the others fade away.

Similarly with Heals, HE I and HE III wouldn't stack (Atleast the buff in my few) while the pure hp healing from HE I & HE III or even HE III & HE III would still stack (Just not the bonus resistance, you only get whichever is highest).
