Its a problem inherent to the way buffs work in the Cryptic engine I think. Champions Online, back when PvP still happened and before they put the game on life support had the same problem. The alphas were insane but if a target managed to survive the best alha builds had nothing for a follow up strike. Back then in CO we were pretty sure it had something to do with the way buffs were coded that prevented anything like reasonable soft caps and/or that the system just couldn't handle partial CC effects.

These are not the Romulans from the shows.
