well if u have, lets say, 10 10K shields, and one 5K credit shield, u will still get a percentage of 67% in terms of absorbability, if i remember correctly.
if u have just 1 or 2 elite shields, yea its true, the rest credit shields still help some, but if u have more elite shields than credit shields on board, i'd say better get rid of the cheap shields.
