makemydayfreeper: We've got an issue in this community as to what DPS really is. I looked at the 8000 dps listed in the end of his second video and it doesn't add up. In 13 minutes and 29 seconds, let's say 13.5 minutes, times 60 seconds - 810 seconds, he did 3,897,416 damage.

Well 3,897,416 / 810 = 4811 dps according to windows calculator.

This is my issue when folks claim massive DPS. I think he's using some very old plugin or something that does inaccurate calculations for dps. it's nearly double what it should be. DPS is literally damage total divided by duration of match.
You mix up the start time of the mission with it's actual duration. 7:13 was the duration of the combat, if you check the length of the video, it matches perfectly. It was the fastest round of KASE I frapsed so far, thanks to the great team we had that day.

Still, ACT just counts the raw damage with the plugin I used. I've updated to Hilbert's and calculated it again (still shield and hull damage), the result can be viewed here:

And if you want further proof, just contact me in game to play a round or two: @Hellspawny

Still, comparing results with ACT data is a two sided sword since every round can be quite different. If I use a trico bomber in CSE, I can easily top 16k DPS due to >250k crits. ACT counts 250k even if the cube has just 10k. And you need to be in combat all the time, so defending the kang, probe duty etc. will most likely ruin you DPS.
