Gentlemen,

I have been in many PVP battles as a klingon and as a Federation. My Kligon is a BG5 with
reverse shield polarity one and two as well as emergency power to shields. I have recently
come across certain individuals, one clan specifically that can Kill you with all three buffs
occurring one after the other. They are the only ones I have seen this with. Is there some kind of
hack they are using to eat through my shields even though using all three buff back to back?
I have looked at my combat log and they are using nothing special but beam attacks. Any help on this subject. I would hate to think people are cheating....but.
Let me know wht you think....Doc

Bleed through is one. Second is the FBP, if you are using beams than you are getting killed with FBP.

Are you sure that they didnt just disabled your shields with shield power debuff?

There's that engineering skill that increases bleedthrough...I forget what it's called. I've not messed with it much. I imagine if you spec for it, it might get nasty enough.

You should replace one of your Emergency Power to Shields with Engineering Team, at least, which grants hull healing and resistance. Hazard Emitters is a good science hull health+resist ability too -- Eng Team is 10k range or self, Hazard Emitters is 5k range or self.


But yeah, the most common way of killing someone through shields is to stack Beam Target Subsystem Shields. Two or three people doing this will make your shields simply turn off and it's not really apparent what happened unless you notice your shield power slider indicates it's completely empty.

This Bug sometimes happen its not bleedthrough and not energy modulation.

It seems it has to do with skilled phaser and antiproton what double damage from phasers at the moment.

Are you quite certain it is not directed energy modulation in conjunction with other damage boosting effects? 2-3 people using DEM+attack patterns+tac teams+etc etc can chew you up even if you had RSP up 100%
Is anyone using a tractor beam on you? A tractor beam will make one shield facing absolutely worthless.
You need to select your enemy and mouse over their buffs then come back here and post your findings. You also need to not rely solely on shields and as an added note not solely on hull either. To get the best out of pvp I find you need to "find a middle ground" between offensive abilities hull repair/resistance and keeping your shield up.
Try using one of the engineering "armor" consoles.
Just a few things to think about.

rofl, i always wondered about what the op mentioned, why my shield was at full power, still active and not even down, but my hull was taking all the damage. that would happen on either Fed or Klingon toons. I just avoid space pvp, unless its the daily, that just incredibly...stupid.

Get a Video Capture going record what is going on.

I had that happening to me as well a couple of times I did not give it too much attention dismissing it a glitch in the game, latency, lag etc. But since I am not the only one now.

I post in every one of these threads I find, because I too have created threads about this happening, and been eviscerated by all the people who think that I must not know how to play, or didn't see someone beam target shields on me or whatever. My personal opinion is that there is some combination that lets antiproton weapons get through shields, along with DEM or some such. However, there is another thread now where a guy says this is happening in T4, so it can't be antiproton. I do not know what it is, but I have been burnt down several (not countless, but several) times fighting against Feds with at least 2 escorts (I never bothered to get their names and it hasn't happened in about 2 weeks, I mention the escorts because it seemed a pre-made that was set up this way) and myself and my entire team lose 15-0 every time, and we die with full shields.

All the other people trying to rationalize this somehow, whether they're being jerks or really thinking they're trying to help ..all that aside, there is a way this happens, and it needs to be found and fixed, whatever it is.
