Hey all,

So I noticed after the update that when I was fighting Klingon ships this tag that said "Distrupter Breach" was hanging over my shield actions buttion with a little count down on it. Whats this? Is this part of the new damage system? Any help here?

Every weapon type has a chance to add a small bad effect to an attacked ship.

Disruptors which NPC's Kilngon use have the Disrupter Breach effect, which temporally makes your hull damage resistance weaker.

Phasers which you probably use have the Phaser Proc effect,(also more accurately called the Disable subsystem effect), which can temporally disable a random subsystem (shields/weapon/engines/aux).

Every weapon type has a different one.

You can what weapon type an enemy is using by the colour.

Phaser - orangey yellow (Note: some player Federation ships may have blue phasers).
Disruptor - green
Plasma - aqua blue
Tetryon - dark blue
Polaron - purple
Antiproton - orangey yellow (with an extra orange electrical effect, can be hard to tell from phaser).

Definitely not new, as it's pretty much the whole point behind having different weapon types.

Actually it says "Disruptor Beach", unless they finally fixed that in this morning's patch.
