I had a bad fleet event today. Partly my fault.

Just before the event I decided to switch from a disruptor equipped cruiser to a phased tetryon beam/cannon escort. I was just short of Rear Admiral Lower Half when I tried it.

I saw that the mission was a failure from the start. All the other ships were either skittles or rainbows. One person dropped out within the first couple minutes. I tried anyhow.

I wasn't doing much of any damage. Nobody else was either. I died twice before the mission failed in the second wave.

Now for the really bad part.

JUST before the mission failed I realized my weapons and all the other power settings were at 50%. I raised the weapons to 100% and my damage figures jumped dramatically. But it was too late.

Mission failed.
