So I was testing the MACO shields and Tetryons with my brother and I noticed some big abnormalities.

The First:
Tetryon Procs don't work. My brother was using 6 of those 10% proc Tet beam arrays and we could visually see the procs going off but none of my other shield facings were budging at all. Even if innate regen was kicking in right after the proc, it is unlikely that it would be kicking in right after every proc and the regen shouldn't be enough to off set the Tet proc.

So either they aren't working, or this is specific to the Polarized tetryon beam arrays from A New Link and not Tetryons as a whole.

The Second:
The MACO shield resists is way more than 10%. Here is some stuff from the combat log while I'm using my MACO Shields MK XI. I am sitting still with pretty much nothing boosting my resist other than the MACO shield and shield power at 71 (81 after the power link kicks in):

10:23] xxxx deals 11 (229) Tetryon Damage to you with Tetryon Array.

[10:23] 47 (195) shield damage was dealt to your Resilient Shield Array - Left.

[10:23] xxxx deals 10 (209) Tetryon Damage to you with Tetryon Array.

[10:23] 97 (399) shield damage was dealt to your Resilient Shield Array - Left.

[10:23] xxxx deals 21 (428) Tetryon Damage(Critical) to you with Tetryon Array.

[10:23] 55 (229) shield damage was dealt to your Resilient Shield Array - Left.

[10:23] xxxx deals 12 (246) Tetryon Damage to you with Tetryon Arra


So the first line is damage going to my hull while every second line is damage dealt to my shields. I''m getting almost 75% reduction to damage I'm taking to my shields


Here is the same test with my Borg shields:

[10:20] xxxx deals 13 (129) Tetryon Damage to you with Tetryon Array.

[10:20] 106 (128) shield damage was dealt to your Shield Array - Left.

[10:20] xxxxdeals 14 (145) Tetryon Damage to you with Tetryon Array.

[10:20] 102 (123) shield damage was dealt to your Shield Array - Left.

[10:20] xxxx deals 14 (139) Tetryon Damage to you with Tetryon Array.

[10:20] 112 (135) shield damage was dealt to your Shield Array - Left.

[10:20] xxxx deals 15 (153) Tetryon Damage to you with Tetryon Array.

[10:20] 125 (151) shield damage was dealt to your Shield Array - Left.

So here seeing a reduction of about 17% which is expected.

Something is definitely wrong with the MACO shields.

So if some who is more combat engine inclined can set up some tests and verify this, it would definitively prove that the MACO shields are broken and OP.

I'll be bug reporting this and I hope if you guys can verify this, you will too.
