What... hit me?

I got hit with something maybe 4-5 seconds into this Arena battle that insta-killed me before I could even activate my first ship ability. What has that level of Crit with such a short initialization?

    An immortalized Locutus, maybe?


    Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

    Happens to me alot. One hit destroys my ship when I’m almost at full power. Kinda like when Reed intentionally overloaded the plasma cannons.

  • Killy has a short initialize and heavy damage. Dr Chaotica also causes me a ton of damage. You need to check who is on the other ship at the start of the battle to be sure tho, there are a few that knock me out immediately. Now I need to think about it I can't remember any of them 😑😂

    Yeah, luckily the cloak can be engaged RIGHT before Killy fires (I am usually mashing the cloak button). The T'ong seems to suffer from delayed animation issues too, so you may think your safe because you're cloaked, but the computer has actually triggered an ability or two and it doesn't register until after your cloaked.

    Hmm, whatever this was, it killed me before my cloak even initiallized. I didn’t even have time to “adjust tritium intermix,” which I’m now realizing kicks in at second 2, so I’m still baffled. Do Killy, Chaotica or Locutus initiallize in 0-1 seconds?

    Off the top of my head, only Locutus and Mirror Spock have 1-second initialization times and neither do instant damage. Killy initializes at six seconds and will have a chance at one-shotting a Bounty, especially if your cloak finger is slow.

    At four seconds, however, I’m not sure what could wipe you out in one hit. There are some decent crew that initialize at that time but I don’t recall any that do instant damage (possibly some legendaries?); if there are any faster than Killy, a critical on an instant-damage attack would be able to do the trick.

    Locutus can do that to people. Locutus combined with Degra might be interesting. If Degra's instadamage (1s initialize at like 150%) hits with a Locutus style crit, that could be devastating if the RNGesus is not feeling kind.

    Interesting. That would make sense... that could have been a Degra I saw. It all happened so fast, officer!

    Something is up. I’m getting destroyed in half a second nearly every time in the arena. This never happened before now it’s happening like 8 battles out of 10
  • Over a thousand people now have a Yar with devastating attack that can't be defended against adequately. Several have multiples of her. Combined with Killy, LoB, M Spock etc.

    The Admiral division will be painful to play now and those of us outside of DB's timezone already struggled to stay in top 1%. Which means it's going to be even harder to level up ships for Voyages in turn.

    The Skirmish event is gonna be dominated by those who got Yar as well since quick finishes are the biggest influence on ranking.

    Skirmish events are no problem. Any 5* ship will tear through all five battles. I used my D’Kora for them all so far with any ole crew and have never once even used the hull repair option. It’s the arena where I’m getting killed.
  • Oh I'll get through the battles alright, but it'll take me longer than it does others so I'll have to put more time in to rank

    I wouldn’t worry about the event. These ships are not going to be staffed with Yar’s. So we shall have Yar’s Revenge! (For those of you who get that reference)

    This is how you sell poor quality artwork with early 2017 level CMD/DIP/SEC stats. Who cares if it further erodes the Arena ecology?

    I guess it solves the Captain Killy problem though. :D

    Well, she was nerfed to the ground so I'm just LOLing at who paid that much just to win the arena.
  • Not that I'm most of your elite lvls, but I just got nailed by a Borg Cube that took less than 5 seconds, three hits, to destroy my maxed out Terran 1701. Major "WTH?" moment.

    I believe T’Mir’s instant damage skill has a 4 second initialize. With a critical hit on that attack and the right passive bonuses from other crew it isn’t impossible to wipe out an ISS Enterprise.
  • Sorry to post this here.... I cannot seem to create threads yet.... but has anyone experienced this? I'm getting 3x the rewards for the daily missions.... It's so weird.... like I'm not complaining, but I'm pretty sure it isn't supposed to do this....

  • It’s a glitch that pops up from time to time.
  • Same, several times last week, even after alt future Dax and her +10 evade activated. Hasn't happened in the last few days and I can now be "number one" in arena again. I think it was Yar.
  • Even with future Dax I got hit several times. I tries several combinations with my crew and couldn't get it done.
