The current passive FDL shield "nerf" is actually the best way they could have gone about it. I would call it brilliant even, since most people won't notice a big change in total power. The only people that will notice a change are the ones who created broken builds, and even they will only notice that their previous invulnerability has been shifted to their hulls.
But for purposes this thread, an FDL will still be quite a threat to big ships. However, when going 1v1 against an equally well specced and skilled Corvette, it will be very challenging if their goal is to secure a kill, even if they spec for anti-big ship guns.
The only brokenly OP ship now is the Cutter. Since they can outlast any of the big 3, control the encounter with their speed, and even chase down FDLs to secure a kill.
