oh, and every time they add some new thing that heals over time, or boosts regeneration, it DIRECTLY reduces the effectiveness of things like beam arrays, and the other lesser used cruiser weapon single cannons
Lobi shield mines and to a lesser extent Tet Glider aside, imo Sci shield stripping Boff powers and Target subsystem shields are under powered and also reduces the effectiveness of DoT pressure Damage builds.

Also, there are a larger variety of ways to boost power levels now making defenses and shield resistances more effective than when harder choices had to be made.
