3 plasma DHC/3 plasma turrets

EPtE1, AtB1, EPtS3
ET1, AtB1

HE1, TSS2, VM1, TBR3

2 turn+ all resist consoles
5 plasma imbued particle gens
3 plasma energy damage

3 purple tech doffs, 2 vm doffs

TBR will deal your primary damage, with low aux from the AtB use, there should be little push, just damage. the cannons should do a good job moping up, and VM should put a stop to any significant fighting back. with the 5 available sci consoles, its hard not to use plasma weapons for the bonus to their damage you can get with embassy consoles. even a sci captain could get good damage from this, but a tac would be best
i gave this a try as I have a sci vesta w/ a tactical captain...

Im not sure what im doing wrong. I used Aux2Batt followed by TBR3 at near pointblank and..... nothing really happens. I push them a little bit, and take them from 100% hull to 98% Hull....

This is with 5 purple particle gens, and maxed particle in skill tree. Was this nerfed recently?
