I haven't tested lately whether this is still the case or whether maybe this is another example of ancient code making a comeback.
That is odd!

The only Tier component I have put in my formulas is that of the Mark on weapons. It is roughly 10% more damage per rank. This percentage is applied to the standard base damage. Thus, a possible 120% to base damage using Mark XII gear. That does not include bonuses due to rarity; =such as Accuracy or Critical damage etc.

My testing results, so far are very close to what I calculated on paper for my specific ship. There is a small margin of error that Iím not able to account for yet. But, Iím in the ballpark! Sometimes I do 100 damage more than expected, sometimes 100 damage or so less.
