Tss 3 can be cast on someone else. But the huge EptS icon with text was pretty obvious. That someone in a PREMADE dropping a crap ton of trico mines, needs to use hax to whip a pug is frankly pathetic.

I used to just laugh off these narcissistic scumbags, but lately I'm totally in the "check logs" camp now. Sad really.

Some of them deliberately flaunting the cheat by letting opponents in a 3v1 (in one instance I was involved in) continuously fire on them for minutes before bothering to engage them. And no, there were no members of their team supporting them with heals.
So you assume they're cheating? That's just tanking, even a lowly Bird of Prey can tank that much damage if built right. Heck, while I'll accept it's a douchy thing to do, I've ran into a bunch of people and tanked them without firing a shot. The only time you begin to sweat is when someone SNBs you.

Shield resists, shield heals and the like can be insane in PvP (especially with the BFI doff).

So yes, a defiant CAN tank as much damage as a tactical cube, if not more. And yes it's nuts, but it's not cheating. Escorts haven't been glass cannons since season 1.2.

Also, was this Kerrat? If it was the calibre of builds there is generally quite low, so while three of you may have been firing at him, chances are they were just tickling him.

You know, awesome, if that is what it takes..., then let's do it...,

my handle is at the name I'm posting this under. Anyone who doubts my piloting skill and who would rather doubt my piloting skills than take my concern seriously..., note my handle. I'm here. I won't say there aren't people out there that aren't better than me..., my Father taught me and I've always believed that there is always at least one person out there that's better than you. Whoever that may be. And i really don't care to turn this into a bravado contest because I don't have any insecurities that make me hate myself when I lose. I now play another game where win or lose, at least I know for certain that the game itself is policed and free from cheats. And because of this problem that I've brought to you all, I've been playing that game more than this. But anyone who wants to find out whether I'm a prideful noob that has problems flying or a skilled pilot with a legitimate concern. Come find me. Challenge me and truly see if I'm the noob you'd prefer me to be.

Take this issue seriously and just look into it. Or..., if you're into testing me first. Come find me. I'll be here. I'll accept your challenge. And you know what? If I have something to learn at the end of the match, I'll gladly accept the lesson.

I don't know what it takes to convince you all that I've been tracking a real and serious problem. But all I want is for enough people to look into it and try to get the Cryptic/Perect World team to at least tell us what's wrong at worst, or to fix the issue.

Again, I have the utmost respect for each of you. And I understand healthy skepticism. I promise to accept any challenge issued to soothe any doubts. But please, all I'm asking is that you take me seriouslt and investigate. If you want to challenge me first...., then cool. Win or lose, I think you all will find me at the very least a decent pilot and very knowledgeable about the game.

And oh yeah, I'm a reasonable person. You won't get any abuse from me if you run a better ship. I appreciate good players and people who are better than me. But I doubt that any of you will find me lacking. And again, I mean that with the utmost respect.

I personally think you are just not realizing the insane amount of tank/sustain available in this game. Just running EPTS 3, Maco Shield, 2 piece borg, and the brace for impact heal doffs the sustain is just ridiculous.

At full shield a Maco should be near 1k regen every 6 seconds per facing. Then take into account a (near) 75% resist, eh we will go with 65% to be fair. That in and of itself is (1,000*4)/.35 = 11,428 EHP just from natural regeneration, or negate nearly 2k DPS.

Add in the procs from borg, doffs, TSS, etc, etc, and you can see where I am going with this.

This has been literally years of the boy who cried wolfhax. It simply gets thrown around too often to be taken seriously. It's not your fault, but no show of skill on your part is going to make people believe you. You could fly the pants off of the best pilots and you would still be up against the perception created by all of the people who have screamed hax without justification.

You're going to need raw logs with names deleted, screen shots of what buffs were up at the time, and possibly ACT data. All of the same incident.

I was just checking to see if you had posted this yet or not.

I once made the same mistake (about 2 years ago) when checking my logs until someone pointed out that Praxis' toon was my mystery damage.

I'd say the mystery is solved now.

Unknown entitiy = lag

And that is all...

The rest of that log is normal dmg... it came from a player. There is nothing odd there.

If you got crited for 100k+ then post the log.... most likely it will say Unknown Entity (if you where lagging bad) deals 120000(80000) critical tricoblt explosion... or some such similer thing....

I have seen people claim people are cheating, or are using a cheat program ect ect ect... and seeing as most of the time they are talking about me and I know I am not cheating... I will assume that no such thing exists. Frankly if it does I have yet to see it.
