The more I think about it the more I tend to believe the best course of action is to make skills like APB and FoMM apply a debuff to shields. Reworking the entire way shield resists are calculated or the bonus shield resist BoFF skills work is asking too much from Cryptic. It will also **** off carebears and those two things make it almost a pointless endeavor. However, retooling a few tactical BoFF abilities to apply a shield debuff is very doable.
I might also suggest perhaps APB only apply the shield resist bonus for the ship that is casting it. This would prevent an easily abused situation of multple APB being stacked on multiple targets? Thoughts? As i said earlier I would give FoMM a shield debuff as well but not sensor scan. Its offset by the fact everyone and their brother runs tac team and the duration of that skill is out of whack. Now, if they nerved tac teams duration then that might be a different story.
