And what kind of Gear would you need to accomplish that level of damage?
Very good questions. Wish I had the answer for those. But math is not my area of expertise. :\
I've been trying to look at it from the what killed me side, and I can't really go with just damage. Most of the time, it's just a case of being debuffed/tractored/crew dead/5+ minute respawns...and well...somebody could probably kill me by blowing bubbles, lol.
I tend to fly tanky - whether I'm in an Escort or a Cruiser. I'm useless with DHCs, so I don't use them outside of PvE - so I can't tell from that angle. I don't have my damage to look at on a kill. With my deaths, being the target of an alpha, etc - I've always gone more with the feeling rather than the numbers.
I probably need to log a few matches and just look at what killed me, trying to note the time of my deaths so I can go back and see what happened.
The only incoming damage thing I can remember was a guy that did somewhere between 50-60k in 2-3 seconds, but that wasn't fast enough to kill the guy I was on. It would have obliterated my Sci or Tac in a SV or Escort, but not either of my Engs.
Maybe I'll do that - parse different matches in different ships on different toons, to get an idea.
