Over the coarse of the day, I have been on the recieving and giving end of a very large amount of excessive quantum torpedo damage crits, in the 15k+ range. This is not from a tricobalt or a high yield torp combo; this is a SINGLE, excessively powerful critical hit. My HYT3 often hits for 15-17k, but a single torpedo. Thats like the epic shots from the movies >examples<.
The organizedpvp channel got a kick out of them and we all had a good laugh about how stupid they were, but I thought that the forums should know about it. I will be bug reporting it tomorrow.
Not that hard if you tried, haven't a clue off the top of my head but say they're base 3k, add a few mods, some skills, you should reach at the very least 5k. A single going down fighting at low hp'll boost that to 10k, add an attack pattern alpha, attack pattern omega, tactical team, attack pattern sigma (fine that one doesn't really exist). But at the very least just with that going down fighting, you should hit at least for 20k crit, add in crit severity and the other buffs subtracted by your resistances and that sounds about right. Did 65k with a tricolbalt before, which is probably my second highest hit asides from the 2 million/billion damage ramming speed back then.
Ah but then a hy3 could do that 4 times, ok unlikely but possible, and no more odd a result than a 47k beam overload. surviving in pvp was a challenge before the patch, now you have to hope you just go unnoticed long enough to deliver some damage yourself
