I'd love to take credit, but really this is from canon itself.

Extend Shields is wrapping your shield around another starship in protecting it. So if they are being attacked, it's your shields that suffer.

With Transfer Shields, thats literally what you are doing. Taking your shields and giving it to another ship. Which is partly why I felt it stupid them making it able to be casted on yourself.

As snix said many moons ago, you're transfering from your deflector to your shields. Whether that was always the interpretation or is just now, I don't know.

Personally i find sensor scrambling more annoying than any other ballacing related aspect of the current space PvP.
