Perhaps you stopped pugstomping and actually went up against good players?
when i read this thread in the office, this was my thought!
i know my overloads really good
but the overload-damage i dealt the last hours on ships of "random player", was slightly below the damage i deal on superior equipped, skilled and played ships.
my overload is sick
i'm not a decloaker, so its not a cloak-striker issue
Well OP, did a whole bunch of PvP last night, including three massive 10v10 premade matches in cap n hold.
One moment that stood out to me was when I was trying to cloak and restart and attack run, a well known "vaper" (emoe) tried to take me out, and got me to 18 percent.
I popped GDF (with NO other buffs active), turned around, decloaked, and nailed him with a 30k BO1 right to the face.
That was unbuffed as all my stuff was on CD at the time.
Let us recap, a 30k beam overload 1 (the actual flytext, so the post resists damage applied), from an experimental beam array (not a dual beam bank), on a decloak 18% GDF buff alone. No Alpha, Omega, FOMM, TacFleet, assist of any kind, etc.
I think this thread has been proven wrong.
well considering mini runs no resist to any degree. 30k bo1 sounds right.
