Like AoE cloaking every KDF at respawn in Kerrat (not shooting) so all the feds believe we have left, then decloaking and attacking.
Much giggles.
That is correct.

This choice should probably hinge on what you're flying, and where. The KHG shield has that neat little stealth proc that makes it harder to hit you, while the MACO just makes it harder to do damage when they DO hit you.

Back in the day, when the sets were separated and you could get them from drops in the STF's (this would be pre-season7 patch), I used KHG quite effectively on the humble Bird of Prey. *(at that time, mixed with the Borg deflector, console, and engine at first, then just the complete set later)

It's what you're doing with the gear that should influence whether to get, or keep it. I'd likely claim the (Adapated) aka MACO gear is better suited to use on a Raptor or BCruiser, along with the Omega set, but others will have differing views.

Seems reasonable, but my Kamarag likes the assimilated deflector more for the aux bonus and graviton generators, since it can run grav well.

You can push your opponent to a 75% miss rate with the KHG. That's pretty clutch. It extends to your team. So that's handy. Then there's the passive placate. That's another damage reduction.

But if you're looking for a full time passive that you don't need to be awake for in PVE, go MACO.

There you can actually watch the KHG set working in PvP. It's a great ON USE ability. If you don't like or feel the need for that, it's arguable that the passive placate vs the passive resistance roughly equal each others damage reduction over the course of a match leaving you the passive energy bonus to enjoy with the MACO instead of the on use defense/stealth of KHG.

The khg shield (or adapted maco) is probably the best in game at the moment for pvp. I'm still undecided on elite fleet shields. Seriously, accuracy nerf and free passive placate? God help me.
STO is the BEST game ever and the players absolutely LOVE it.

Adapted Maco Shield + Adapted Maco Engine + Maco Deflector = Win.
