and I WANTS IT!!!

no, really. MkXII Blue/MkXI Polarons with a Plas Leech didn't even make the Elite Fleet Adaptive shield of a Defiant quiver in a match last night. I felt like I was firing purple tickle-rays when I decloak-alpha'd.

At first, I wondered if my Power settings were down-you know, maybe I left it on "engines" or something...but nope. 125/25/50/25 with MkXII blue consoles and "Drop" Polarons with the 3P Jem Set from the mission...didnt' even make his shields quiver.

So for my 3rd, 4th, 5th...etc. res, I focused on his pals-and they died about like they were supposed to-when he wasn't shifting from killing the Bort (there were only two of us, the third guy was AFK-Leeching) to coming after me.

SO...I asked him, after the score tally went up, "What're you running for shields, man?"

And he told me.

NOW... I Wants it!!

Seriously-aside from the Doffs and those Fleet shields, I run pretty much the same supporting gear he was running, same Bridge Off powers...same marks even. It was the combo of Shield and Duty Officers.

I KNOW what I'm going to run when I get the EC and the Fleet reaches T5 provisioning...if it works that well on a Defiant, imagine what it'll do for survivability on a Hegh'ta or Fleet Norgh...

it isn't possible to beat 1v1 a decent bug user with those shields with some other escort.

even a perfect no TT, no APO opportunity i got last nigh were i tractored and alphaed one couldn't make even a hole in the shields with 3 cannons so i could hit hull with torps. anything in a situation between buffs like that should have no chance of survival.

those shields are so BS, unless one is shut completely down by VM and subnukes, they basically cant be killed no mater the focus fire

The shields aren't that good especially after the nerf

I think your overestimating them

I run resb on all my kdf ships whilst yes they are good In my opinion maco MK XII are just as good(which I use on my fed)

Really? a 15/20% Resist (If u use the right ResA/ResB) + another 20% stack not good? lol

Only way to deal with these guys using it is to change your weapons constantly, its like on ground versus borg you simply 'adapt'.

Because these guys won't budge for anything and people will change fleet shields from ResA to ResB to get their advantage.

Question... wouldn't it make sense for the set-teams out there to assign energy types. So minimally you have multiple types in play during a match. 2 From Res A, 2 From Res B, and 1 whatever you feel like.

Yep.

It can also turn into a cat and mouse game with people swapping shields / weapons.

Transphasic torpedoes.

Learn to love them.

I didn't say they weren't good read before replying

They are a nice bit of kit but they aren't groundbreaking that's the point I was trying to get across

i can already be practicly invincible with maco myself, haveing an average sheild res of ~60%. as soon as i take a few hits i'll be res caped, all can say is good luck at that point.


that bug ship duel i mentioned, i also for a time stopped firing at him, made him lose all his stacks, almost got him that time, but after the first cycle of my alpha, and he had taken hull damage, he was back to full stacks. theres just no getting around that. time to dust off the disruptor, plasma and AP weapons i guess
