My shields gone from 1875 damage protection to 1375 damage protection and health regeneration 25% not working like it did, Is more like 10% regeneration rate . Any one else having this problem ?

I've noticed as well my EL shield had 2202 points now it's in the 1500's which makes having shields pointless now they've been nerfed

Wow... My EL shield has gone from about 2045 to 1630... Normal Ironclad-Shields at Ego 5k have about 2000 capacity but since this is an EGO 4500 shield...
I'd like to know if this change was intended or just happend because the 7th legion shields were fixed?

EDIT:
It cannot be intended as an Ironclad I have and a Respark have the SAME capacity.

EDIT2: All of my shields have the same capacity so it has to be a mistake... All shields have 1643 capacity... Lets see when this will be fixed.

Same with me, i have/had one with 22+something and another (blue)18+something and now they have both 1529 capacity.
It`s an EL Ironclad Rearm IV and a blue EL Rebel II, they both are at EGO 2500 like before.

Mine don't all have the same cap, but they're all very close. Lowest is 1600, highest is 1643. Good time to be using that Respark Berserker V, heh.

Same for me. Submitted a ticket about it.

Does Trion not have testers? How does crap like this continually happen? TRY IT BEFORE YOU RELEASE IT!

This is appalling. Why have they made the Ironclad worthless? This significantly reduces my survivability, messes up my loadout and playstyle. Now my epic Ironclad IV is reduced to a ******ed version of a green or blue Rebel.

Weird... Maybe you have 4900 shields and 5000 shields?
That would explain the difference. Mine are all 5k except for the EL Ironclad one and that's EGO 4500.

But clearly, something is wrong with them.

Is this happening with all shields or only purples?

They didnt do this on purpose . This is what happens when you complain about something and ask them to fix it. People complained that there were some weapons not dropping from the warmaster they fixed it and now legendaries wont drop at all anymore. People complained about the zaggers and now all the shotguns are broken. People complained the seventh legion shields didnt have the right capacity and now all the shields are broken , there are more instances like this...see a trend happening here?

Oh yeah, that's probably why. So basically shields are still scaling with EGO, but other bonuses don't apply anymore. I believe that 1643 is the capacity of a shield with no capacity bonus or malus at 5k (so Rebels and uhh, Tachyons I think? I never use these...). Extra Life bonuses are also not applying anymore.

That's not the only thing wrong with them.

Every shield has the same capacity. There isn't a difference anymore.
So basically, there is no difference in shields anymore other than the recharge delay at the moment.
I think bonuses still apply (like Regenerator, Blockade, Reloader, Berseker etc.) but there seems to be no difference between Rhino, Hurricane, Ironcald, Respark etc.

That is a bug which they'll hopefully fix soon. PvP at the moment would be funny... PvP with a Respark :D Same capacity as a Ironclad at the moment but not this huge recharge delay xD

Seems only to have affected shields I had in my inventory prior to the hotfail. I've picked up various shields while playing today and they've all had their standard capacity in relation to my EGO. I found a common Ironclad and it had 1943 in capacity. While the epic Ironclad IV I had in my inventory prior to the patch was reduced to 1618.
