And just to add insult to injury, Moth has no downside, as it's only used on assassin configs, which have no shields anyway.
I used to think like you until I bought the Moth formation (legitimately).
It sure doesn't work the same way it's been used on me by certain players, leaving me to believe there is some sort of script out there that changes the Moth's percentage of shield penetration.
Don't get me wrong, Moth is a great formation. But it's not really over powered.
It basically just counters the effect of the bubble shield.
And unless your opponent is already much more powerful than you, it's not a great 1v1 formation as their shields will drop too quickly.
Great for surprise attacks. Not so great in an even fight.
