Some people might go with MACO full set because they're just OCD completionists who have to do things
They will be fixing the Jem"Hadar shields very soon.
I was actually using it too there for awhile, but I decided to ignore the exploit. I tried it for comparrison purposes against the MACO, but it simply did not stack up against it. For one thing you don't get but a fraction of the +10% Kinetic Damage resistance. Only adds a couple of points to resistance. Not worth nerfing your shields by 3000 points, nor does it have the 10% damage resistance against all energy types nevermind the 20% against plasma.
Until they make losing crew mean something its other benefit is useless as well.
The MK-XII M.A.C.O. Shield is just too darn good.
