After the patch, I finally got my hands on a set of Reinforced Shield Repair Drones. First thing I suddenly noticed was they were no longer healing shields as fast as the normal ones.
At first I thought maybe there was a bug between the Reinforced and the normal shield drones.
But that isn't what bothered me. Because I'll agree normal Pre-Atrox Patch shield Repair Drones healed too fast. But what DOES bother me is that there does not appear to be any difference in shield repair between normal and Reinforced Shield Repair Drones. Just more hull. And even then it's not as much as I thought.
