It states that the shield absorbs the damage, so if you bypass the shield no absorbing...
You misunderstand what "ALL" incoming damage means. What it means is "ALL" incoming damage.
It blocked everything before, now it only blocks everything "sometimes", shield bypasses or not.
This shield was designed to give the player's ship *immunity* to ALL damage, no matter how it is inflicted, ie shield bypass attacks are not meant to get through. If they were, it would be made explicitly clear in the descriptor which it is not and it wouldn't say "Immune to ALL incoming damage while active". Furthermore, Bulwark NPC's would have been affected by DEM and other shield bypass effects, they were not, they only started being affected by "any" damage attacks recently and intermittently when my own Bulwark's RSM started being affected. Both are being affected by the same bug.

To the Developers, just out of curiosity, do you plan on giving this any attention? I understand that you guys have enough problems with the tons of other bugs you allowed to creep into the game due to not fixing them properly and permanently before they became issues of epic proportions, but you could at least respond to the thread and say something, let me know this isn't falling on deaf ears.
