Hull resists are not... if you add an armour console that says its +30 for instance... you won't ever get +30 even if you where at zero before. At some point that +30 will be like +5 at most as the resist number goes up.

Same thing happens with resistance debuffs like beta delta disruptor procs ect... they are dropping -12... but seeing as that last +30 console was only giving +5... dropping it down to a 17.5 instead of 30... is only going to net you 2-5 points of resist at most off there score.

Its the nature of resistance in this game... honestly resistance debuffs like disruptors work best when comboed with other debuffs.
What he said.

You said you went from 24.1 to 2.9, I'm assuming that's 24.1% to 2.9%. The disruptor proc is equivalent to taking neutronium away. 1 resistance =/= 1%, resistance is a diminishing returns formula, big gains initially and then it asymptotes.

P.S. Equip more Neutronium if you're that scared of the disruptor proc.
