You know what? I'm going to reserve judgement on that one for now, until I fight players all kitted out with these.
So far, using non-rep characters in pvp is still perfectly viable, in my experience - once they fixed the bogus shield boost that one of these t4's gave. Even when I am thoroughly outgeared, it's mostly the elite fleet shields that flatline my attacks.
Sure, they're more unstrippable bonuses that you get without sacrificing for elsewhere, but they're not massive, per se. They look like the kind of thing that might, just might, tip the balance in situations where 2 exactly identically skilled captains fly exactly identically outfitted identical ships - how often does that happen anyway?
