ludicrous.

If it isn't one thing, it's another huh?

And I find this funny, because people were complaining about the very rare 50k hit when a player iso charge hit them. Now you get 100k+ from mobs lol

yeah one shot the kang, great way to keep people playing.

Until then, it's recommended not to fly too close to any friends while fighting these Assimilated Klingon ships. If the Isometric Charge doesn't chain to additional targets, it only does about the same damage as a Quantum Torpedo.

Actually, that's probably good advice for even after this change goes live...
I know you're busy doing the Lockbox crap right now, but I would advise that this bug is kinda a buzzkill and no-go....can you do a hotfix with tomorrow's patch for now and then something more longterm for the following patch? It's effecting SB24 and any other action that has Neghvars, which will also effect low-level missions. I'd hate to lose players because they get one shotted in the early missions...

Yesterday I ran CSE. Someone used isometric charge. Damages was around 100k.
Thats perfectly possibble, Between APA, APO, GDF, TF, and crits values pushig beyond 150K aren't out of reach for players. They're just not anything like normal. the Maority of Isometrics players use will be somwheer close to 30K non-crit.

Good to hear, because it's fun NPCs have new tricks up their sleeves, but that Isometric was way too much as a multi-1-shot weapon.
NO to ARC!
