I am ok that they intend to correct the scaling with PartGen BUT i am not ok with the fact the devs said nothing about tac buffs boosting TBR at insane levels.
Well to defend the devs here that is not really true.
This one slipped into a patch not that long ago... we brought it up... Borticus noticed we brought it up... looked into it .... discovered the error and posted in THIS thread that it would be corrected within the next patch or so.
Now yes someone screwed up and added a bonus to skill that was already had one in place... so it ended up with a double bonus. Seems to me that once they where made aware of the error they have in fact corrected it. It may not be live as of yet however it will be soon enough.
I am not happy they messed up, however we all make a mistake now and then, seems to me they corrected it. So as critical as I can be at times, they are fine now. I would rather they admit it and fix it then ignore it and say its working as intended as they have in the past.
When the messenger comes to appropriate your profits ... kill the messenger.
@cichicichi: The point i'm getting at TBH is that even before this bug i saw loads of people spamming TBR in pve as a means of dealing extra damage, and it did was make things harder on everyone else. Often to the point of FUBAR'ing things. Reducing it to scratch damage rather than the still respectable 2k+ it can manage before insane scaling kicks in would be vastly prefferable from my PoV as it gets people to use it as intended, (a CC skill), and if it was scratch rather than no damage you'd still have your mine clearer, (hell they could give it a 10x multiplir like the PDGF console for fighters).
Also, you want a tatse of this yourselves. Go run fed mirrior event and close orbit a typhoon. Or re-play Crack in the mirrior. Mirror ships use it, and having been hit with it when under no fire whatsoever i can say that the damage is absolutly bypassing sheilds completl;y ATM. It dosen't even drain my sheilds yet knocks 20%+ per pulse off my hull. There's clearly more than a bugged particle generator skill at work here.
