The borg transwarp gate in elite is known to have invisible torpedoes that crit for ridiculous amounts of damage.

I have been doing numerous STF runs and as of late I am getting roasted by massive hull hits from literally nowhere.

When your in an Elite you kinda expect the odd death and I chalked it up to just glass cannon escort syndrome.
Now I switched to the Jem Hadar Dreadnaught... and I am still getting nuked from 100% to 5% from something I cannot see even when shields are up.

Pretty sure its the damn gate that is doing it and it seems to be able to whack you even if you are outside 10km.

Against the Transwarp gates, if you stay at about 9.5+km away from it, it won't hit you with OHK invisitorps.

True, but with a cannon boat you'll do crappy damage, probably not enough to grab aggro anyway.

I get OS several time, the one I remember was against the end cube of ISE, I was half hull (50-60%) and full shield (just hit EPtS 3). Then, I was dead.
This is no difficulty or challenge, it simply frustration, and a godly finger "you die". I feel like fighting Q, no borgs...

I just find it very annoying u start playin well then random death it ruins the mood of that mission sumtimes, i just wana win or lose on my own not have the game decide when i die out of randomness, just takes something away from the game in my opinion

I have never ever been one shotted in sb24 and go down from full hp and shields even when I'm being shot at by 20ships at the same time.

So..it might be your build and loadout that's an issue.

Borg yes, but not from any other enemies in game. Borg should be able to one shot you anyway, given that they're consistently one shotting stuff in the show.

It must be HIS build because you have never been one-shotted
Then you go on to say Borg have one shotted you and that they should continue to do so ?

Thats quite a contradiction you got there.

Additionally, here we go beating the 'it was on the show' argument to death despite the fact STO is a game loosely based on the show. Borg should not one-shot people and certainly not be able to do it with invisible attacks that noone can see coming.

He was talking about being one-shotted in Starbase 24. The Borg in ESTFs will one-shot you from time to time no matter your gear or build, but you should not get one-shotted during a Fleet Action.

fine I concede that borg should not one shot you with something invisible because that is frustrating.

But I have really never been shotted by any other enemy other than the borg.

Notwithstanding the fact that borg is capable to one shot you, just that they should not because its annoying and frustrating.

This issue has been around for ages now, I'm sure there were a few posts saying they can't fix it, so they lowered the damage the cube torps did to stop the one shots.

Not sure if they reverted it but i have been back in the game after a 6 month break and they do hit you with invisible torps still and you do get one shot even with full health.

They need to look at the damage output again as i was full health and bam! dead and there was no torps heading my way, same old script.
