Aren't there regular alpha strikes by tacs in tac ships that are worse? My opening salvo on the puke of ships, fully buffed, with CSV2 in the mirror incursion event is around 18k dps for about 4 or 5 seconds....
Regular alpha strikes don't ignore shields.

People overreact so much in this game. I won a dogfight last night using conventional weapons vs. someone using TBR/DEM in an escort timeship from one of the decent pvp fleets. I wasn't using anything to directly counter it, I just didn't fly directly at him when he had TBR up, and if he caught me off-guard I would hit brace for impact. I'm not even good and I was able to beat him. Imagine if I was an experienced pvp'er and actually had stuff to counter him like PH or a montanium console or two- his TBR would have been laughable.

oh yea.... forgot about that. I went back added to my post as I have been messing around in Ker'rat and probes and spheres are push overs now... I mean they were always easy kills but they pretty are much meaningless now

725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?

Seems the TBR issue is still ignored by Cryptic...I wonder if it was not "broken" artifically to increase Vesta sales....hmm hmm

with the right ships we could have TBR'ed even harder and no doubt won the thing.
that makes me think. how about a group of kar'fis?
you can run 2x tbr and apo. with 4 cannons and 2 crf1 you should do decent dmg while tbring the **** out of the enemy. also you have some very nice pets with op tric mines/torps

AFAIK there's a really significant jump in base damage with each level of BR that is then furthar scaled by particle generators. Bassiclly packing TBR 3 is a lot more effective than TBR2 and APO.

this is hardly the power of the month, people have been crushin folks with tac buffed TBR since at least the skill tree revamp.
lol okay, and doing 10k+ with TBR and killing someone in under 10 seconds, that is completely normal :3
