1. Resorting to the cheap combo of Scramble Sensors / Subnucleonic beam + Viral Matrix doesn't mean you can actually destroy anyone and anything in your path like a godly being of utter ruin and destruction.

I've seen results fairly similar to what you've said. Some BoP pilots have enough DPS to chew through a hull fairly quickly, while others have such a **** poor DPS that they have to chain for over a minute. The bad ones tend to peel off and run when they burn their CC's and realize that its not working
