In PvP, though you'll be fighting enemies that can survive the proc's full duration, they'll also likely have Hazard Emitters to negate the proc when necessary. The Omega Reputation shields also all grant bonus shield resistance against Plasma. Because PvP is the source of most highly-optimized builds and at least until recently (Advanced/Elite Fleet and Reman shields may change this eventually) they recommended shields obtained from Omega reputation (which resist Plasma damage), Plasma is/was the weakest energy type.
Read more carefully. I didn't utter a word about PvP, because I couldn't care less about it. Beyond that, believe what you want.
