Oh, I fully agree.

Before these sets came out, everyone was running Covariant or Resilient shields. After the sets, it was 3/4 Borg with a few running full Aegis. Now it's 3/4 Borg + MACO shield.

You can pretty guess what you're gear your opponent has 8/10 times. No decent PvPer is going to turn down 3/4 Borg + MACO/KHG shield, purely because that combination is so beyond any of the other combinations out there.
