You do something wrong then, and by wrong I mean terribly wrong.

See above

*sigh* Ok I said this about 200 times on the forums now but it was not nerfed... People just can't get it into their heads that 20'000 Base damage divided by two shots is the same as 10'000 x 2, just displayed differently. And that is how the rumor of the lance being nerfed is spreading until today

The only thing that is not on par with it is the cooldown, other than that I have already one shot moving escorts with it . (Also 20 - 40% shot a bug that single handly managed to turn a match around after he joined)

Again, you do something wrong with the lance there, whatever it is.
Your numbers are what I usually get when I hit a gate from 9.99km distance and have a bad shot at it. And even then its still more like 7K per shot (therefore 14k)

The last time I my lance hit its target bad it still did 133k during the entire game, and I only used it twice. And that number does not include the damage the Borg's shield's absorbed.
The Gal X certainly needs some changes, but the Lance damage is not one of them.
