edit: Don't forget, that 50% is in addition to the ResA or ResB option they chose. So it's more likely to be a 65% resist, 10% from cap, before using any skills or taking additional shield power into account.
I don't know where people are getting these numbers from but it doesn't say it stacks 10% each time, and its only a chance, not guaranteed every time, lots of times you might have already lost the shield facing before it stacks enough. Yes it is an improvement over my maco mk xii but its not light years ahead of it like some say it is.
Offense has also been boosted a lot lately to with people stacking the new romulan console and crit bonus passive with the tachykinetic and borg consoles and weapons with crit mods, these stronger shields are the only way to survive these crit builds, and against people spamming all these endless waves of new plasma torps at you.
