I believe the cube's use an antiproton cannon and it could possibly be one of those? They tend to be amped up quite a bit as well.
Next time, try to pay attention to the damage info on your screen and it will tell you what energy type it is.
You do have an option here.
In the past, I have recommended Monotanium/electroceramic combo for +35plasma/+35 kinetic resistance (for MK XI Rare) because they are extremely cheap.
However, It is preferred to go with two neutronium consoles (which when combined will give 35 resistance to ALL energy types and 35 kinetic resistance. This can also be used against all enemies rather than having to switch out your consoles based on who you're fighting.
This should help, if you find it to be a big issue.
I also see what you're saying with the loading issue. I just checked and it was doing it to me too. I left it up for troubleshooting purpopses for the stoacademy guys, but I just uploaded my file copy and renamed it and I can connect to it just fine again.
Yup, its working again.
And I jumped into an elite STF to find out and went near a gate, it was a Plasma torpedo after all but again I didn't see it coming so I don't know if it my computer being an ass and not showing it for some reason or it is blind-siding me. The combat log was a pain to go through mid battle as it kept moving, but this is what it displayed:
[5:08] [Combat (Self)] Gateway's Plasma Torpedo dealt 3598 (11300) Shield Damage to you.
[5:08] [Combat (Self)] Gateway deals 31840 (70431) Kinect Damage(Critical) to you with Plasma Torpedo.
That's what I managed to get before it jumped up and then I blew up, seems I must just be missing where these torpedoes are coming from as it really only happens when I get too close, but that 31840 damage coming straight after my shields go knocks most of my hull out which in my Mirror Patrol Escort is around 41k iirc.
