lately I've gone into deep space encounters in the syrius block and have been confronted by uber ships that pulp me in a second.

Im working up my alt and am at lt6, last night was the worst, every instance was sheer hell, spawn in and get hammered

tonite im flying with a couple guys doing well clearing the mobs as per usual, then the lead ship goes full imp into another group and vanishes in a puff of plasma and the mob quickly skids back to its origin point (not used to seeing that).
I head in and my foreward shield is gone in about 2 seconds, im at 50% hull before I can even come about, and this is in a miranda. this was a single klink escort and 2 BoPs. we were my miranda and 2 cruisers that had up until now been mopping the deck with the klink mobs. from that point on everything in the instance was invunrable to us

switched instances and all was well again.
whats going on? is a RA5 instance hopping in the n00b sectors to grief the instances?

I was in there the other day and there were several groups of admiral-level enemies floating around the fringes. But I remember seeing the same thing a few weeks ago when I first started. Check their level before swooping in on them...that's about the only advice I can give.

Also, watch for the group that has the Flagship and its escorts in it, it tends to be NASTY even when correct level.

I've had this happen to me three or four times, though not in the last week or so. Yeah, definitely check the level before you begin your attack run.

so wait, now the DSEs have variable level mobs?
wtf happened to the instances scaling to the players in the instance?

I still think high level players are borking the instances by joining and leaving again.

I'd love to see some official word on just how the encounter mechanic works, because something is not quite right here

What happens is if a RA5 or anyone who is higher rank for that DA, the baddies are spawned at the higher ranked toons level. I went in a DA once just for some easy kills in the sirius sector, just to play, and all of them were my level, but the other players were still Lt Commanders.
