Guys, I have a question regarding energy shields. I have a shield capacitor which brings the rate of dissipation down to 2% from 10%. Does this mean that, each turn, an energy shield with this upgrade will consume 1/5th the power a regular energy shield does?
I've been looking at the three types of enhancements available, and it seems like two are quite useful for different situations, but the third (circular wave amplifier) is gimped by the fact that any extra damage it can absorb is counteracted by the halved capacity. The other two enhancements grant a boon without a drawback.
Oh, and I remember reading somewhere that shields could not be charged in combat, however I am able to use a battery every turn to renew my shield.
