....what the hell happened here?


**** deals 23136 (28967) Tetryon Damage to you with an unknown ability.

(I starred out the persons name to keep him anonymous. Otherwise this is entirely copied and pasted from my combat log.)


I was in a CnH yesterday in my sci-scort and was riding the tail of this particular escort on the other team. I had about 55% hull and 25 % shields when all of a sudden one of his rear Tetryon Beams hit me for the huge amount of damage above. I tried asking him but I got no response.

So now I ask you guys. Any clue what happened???

Looks like a BOL shot.

Why it say "unknown ability" I have no idea.

~25k from a rear (so single beam) BO? Damn. Even with BO3 id be surprised. I get about that as a top crit from my DBB with BO3.

I would say that it was a crit hit from a BO shot...Perhaps you ought to find out what skills the person is using, what traits he has, and what race he is. Perhaps he has some bonus crit, and accuracy that allows him more crit hits or something in addition to his weaponry.

The same thing has happened to me a couple of times....

Damage by an unkown ability?!? I've seen it and died to many times in the past but have no clue as to what it is.
I always kinda thought it was the spirit of "Kahless that was" expressing his dislike of my pvp skills through the application of negative reinforcement.:p

Though a very very lucky BOL3 Crit could give you such numbers on a BeamArray strike.

Ive done similar amounts with BOL1 on my Beamyboat.. And if the person used BOL3, its quite possible

With Tacbuffs (including a lowhull GDF) Ive hit 97k with a AP DBB (CrtD x2 - 60 Crit Severity IIRC) on a BOL3 crit.

I think the real question is - why does the combat log ever show anything as "unknown ability"? And I know it happens occassionally, I don't assume it's foul play. Just an oddity of the log.

Never intended for it to come across as foul play......the escort that did it to me is a decent one at that and everyone of us have come up against him and his Fleet time to time.

I was just puzzled by why it said unknown ability instead of Beam Overload or whatever....
