Adv shields. DOOOOOO IT!

Give adv shields ability to resist or nullify novas

If rarity of shields is equal to Nova then it does 50% less damage and Nova can't chain to cripple. If rarity of shields is lower than Nova it takes full damage. If rarity of shields is higher than Nova then no damage is taken.

Uc Nova VS Uc adv shields 50% less damage from Nova no chain

Oh wait got an idea dipshits should like.
Make battle Royale mandatory. When it's not on everyone is forced to do schoolyard pew.

Thats a good idea for dipshits.
People rather battle royale then have missions. What a shame

Still trying to find a way to get the mods to nullify Novas when they they are the only defense to high level carrier tank builds. You said there was another solution that didn't need novas yet TIB is yet to see you use that defense. It's been how long since the tank carrier builds have come out and your still trying to get novas nerfed in someway.
And yes before you ask I believe both tanked carriers (or nova carriers) and nova defense are overpowered.
It should be a mixed team of gears that prevails. Not one set against another.

how would this nullify novas as defense vs carrier tanks ? you need to wear an adv shields, how you going to do that and be a carrier tank. i'll wait for your response.
going to assume you haven't seen a cluster roll lately. carrier tanks aren't the meta.

The "Shields" items in TIB-X will fundamentally change how Nova and other stats effect items (stun, grapple, etc) work. In a nutshell, you'll have to remove a ship's shields before you can stun or grapple them. Novas might be really useful for this, as they will do significant damage to Shields, but perhaps less to Hull (it'll require testing).
We were talking about making the Adv. Shield item either a powerful "Shield" type item, or make it a special that augments an equipped Shield.

Would Novas be the soft counter or hard counter to shields in TIB-X?
