it still bugs out sometimes saying "unknown entity" but yes, it usually says "electrical damage"

Also, it was a Capture and Hold match.

There was no one else around and no spam involved of any kind, so I had a good look (and hear) at the aggro: it was cannons.

Please bear with me. I have a fairly decent build, and while I'm not by any means invincible -not by a long shot- I can now put up a good fight for at least a minute before getting whacked. I'm just trying to understand what happened.

More theories, please.
But it used the antiproton mag regulator as the weapons console according to that STO wiki.

I think, like some of the borg, it is anitproton under a chroniton skin.

Maybe I should not think.

Doesn't add up.


Couple of things to know. What was your health when it started? How far away was this BOP? And who else was involved? From full health no one will be killing you with just cannons in a half second. I'm sure you said that for effect, but still it would take five to ten seconds to do. And as someone already noted, that damage figure seems a bit high for cannons.

But if you really were destroyed in what looked like a half second to you, BO3 would do it. You may not have even seen the beam. It can happy VERY fast.

It is nice you keep logs that is a good place to start. Get fraps or some other video capture method and take some footage of yourself. It can be VERY helpful in aiding your memory (and your eyes) when reviewing logs!

Some ships that exploded very quickly. At TIMES. Not always. Still fun to watch. I reccomend skipping right to the end and watching the carrier last 3 seconds. Save yourself a bunch of time!


Cheers and Happy Flying!

Yep, nothing better than sneak-attacking a hapless Feddie with BO2/BO3 and HY3 quantum torps. When it works, it's an amazing sight to behold

Yupp, nothing better than wacking helpless klinks with FAW and PSW chaining. When it works, which was usually always, its an amazing sight to behold!

Oh wait....

Its all true. Most of my targets, if they aren't profoundly handicapped, are usually eating dinner, or the dogs are barking, or Klingons are landing on Uranus, or some other magical thing is happening to prevent them from realizing they are in a PVP match.

Really. Feels bad. Wake up and fight back so I don't have to spend my nights cutting myself.

What I dont get, unless for the pure entertainment value, is why people are bragging or even saying how great they are when they rush in with e.g BO3+HY3 to smack a ship dead. I mean, its not a big feat to go in cloacked when the victim is already being attacked by 2-3 other ships+pets and then proceed to brag in chat after the kill. Its simply just zerging, and zerging aint skill. And doing this over and over is not helping said player evolve, on the contrary its making said player way too easy to predict.

Sure ive been a victim to it a gazillion times before, and meh like I care it happens. Im too old and too immune to the taunts to even bother. I just pity them who do it constantly.

Anyone can do it, heck even my 7 year old pupils in the 1st grade can do it.

What? I thought doing an alpha on an overloaded target or a fail dilithium farmer was the mark of a great player?

I do love those thissler videos though. I've been there on both ends in my playtime.

I do miss the old FAW, only because it made decloaking so much more riskier when your hull could melt in a short while. 5 man FAW cruisers in an arena, and if you could get one kill on them it felt like the greatest thing in a PuG.

Or how about getting hit with a random beam while positioning for an alpha, forcing you to use a movement buff to get closer and taking an option for exit away?

Well, for afk`s and farmers, make them burn. Cryptic really needs to do somethig about that.

And yes Thissler actually has entertaining videos, heck im even in one

Old FAW was fun as long as it lasted... the new FAW is rather balanced.
