Drain Infection and Control Amplification seems do not work on certain things

Drain infection seems don't work on:
- Plasmonic Leech
- Tetryon Glider
- Overwhelming Force Trait (BO part)
- Destabilized Emitters (Intelligence officer)
- Tachyon Charges (command officer)
- Weapons with drain effects (polarons, tetryons, quantum phase, neutronic etc.)

Control Amplification seems don't work on:
- Overwhelming Force Trait (T:HY part)
- Viral Torpedo (Trait)
- Tricobalt weaponry

I hope it is not intentional, because skills description suggest ALL kinds of drain/control

BTW. Skill description should be more precise on what this skill do.

    We did recently change the Skill description, from:

    "Whenever you cause an enemy to suffer a Control (or Drain) effect..."


    "Activating an ability that causes an enemy to suffer ..."

    Hopefully that clarifies a little bit about which effects should trigger these Skills.

    Ionic turbulence was also included for control amplification, but the effect is not reflected in its tooltip.

    EDIT: I have confirmed with a fleetmate, that the effect is technically present on the ability (his damage resistance went down significantly lower than without control amplification).
