What's with the constant fear of creating something new that's good? You see the current issue with uef shield is that it's too expensive for the hp so the solution is to make it cheaper but also make it shittier in survivability again? It's supposed to be some mongoose upgrade when half the boon of mongoose is the speed which you now can't use because they are tethered to an ACU that has a more expensive but shittier survival upgrade in every way than Aeon?
If the point is testing things out in beta why don't you err on the side of making things good enough to actually break the meta inertia and use the new toy rather than it being too bad aside from 1 in 3400 game scenarios but when that scenario actually arises you forgot the upgrade exists to actually test it out.
Meet cybran nano. To this day there are enough people (Also 2k+ players) that think it's still as OP as the first iteration and those people are still complaining about it even though it has been nerfed massively compared to how strong it used to be.
Aside from that i honestly don't know how you came to this conclusion. You're cherry picking the mass and hp changes the uef shield, even though the biggest changes are focussed on the e cost, regen and recharge time
This makes it have a faster recharge time than first aeon shield, which is widely considered to have an insanely good recharge time.
We don't want to underbuff units yes, but obviously we don't want to overbuff them either and try to get their stats as accurately as possible from the get go. Aside from that i do intend to rather overbuff than underbuff units so it's easier to get data (especially since it's beta), but as you yourself know we have 0 data on the current shield which means it's harder to estimate how it will behave in a game.
I think this is still a big buff compared to the current UEF bubble shield. Will it be enough of a buff since it's bad atm? who knows. Sadly due to a lack of github enthusiasts this suggested bubble change that was decided on the 1st of october isn't in beta yet so we haven't been able to test it to see whether it needs further adjustments or not.
