the change is you cant stack multiple full power procs. you get 1 proc, and if you get another it cuts the energy but it begins recharges instantly. the first proc will keep it low for 5 seconds like always. the change is more then fair, i single user with pols shouldn't notice a difference, only now a team of users cant abuse the proc as well.
So in practice a team only need 1 player running polarons (little like disruptors).
Not necessarily. As long as you fire, as I understand the fix, opponent power will continue to drain, but as you and your team stop firing, the power would get back up to the level of initial debuff (if there was a 5 sec debuff), or to max if there is no debuff. So your target won't have more that one 5 sec proc. before they stacked, thus they could have several seconds of power debuff.
