I currently have on my escort:

All Advanced Fleet Antiproton Duel Heavy Cannons MK XII DMG x 2 ACC x 2

Advanced Fleet Antiproton Turret DMG x 2 ACC x 2

4 X Console - Tactical - Antiproton Mag Regulator Mk XII.

I worked hard to get those Mag Regulators lol. If I upgrade I will be going to the blue Tac console of what ever energy type I chose because, in which I am still not sure on what i would choose heh. I am not able to put in a lot of time into STO as much as I want, and I am not that good at working the Exchange like some of you are (grumbles in jealousy). That's why I am asking is it worth the upgrade, and if it is I am more then willing to do it. I personally think it is worth it, but I just wanted to ask those who are a lot more experience then I am before I dive into this adventure lol. Thanks for your help
Since fleet shields have been around and people have been 'using it to their advantage' there is no other way but to occasionally switch your weapontypes in PvP, midst match, when you die, and if you dont die you could fly out and get out of combat and switch em over.

I still use Maco shields on all my toons (Except for my KDF, which doesnt need shields anyway ) and im cool with it. I couldnt be bothered constantly switching over to ResA or ResB shields, I do have 3/4 sets on every toon to switch my weapons with in case some Fleet shield abuser gets in my way.

When that happens, i still think maco would be the best shield for them, but its their own choice

It depends. Good premades/players have been using alot of different weapontypes these days, fleet weapons are relatively easy to get as well now ([acc]x2 etc) and im pretty sure all fleet shield users have both a copy of ResA and ResB shields in their inventory by now.
