Anyone noticing that the enemy keeps mega critting?

I've been mastering my Jem Dread cruiser and it seems that the enemy is always rolling crits and taking half my health in one salvo.

    Don't worry, you're not the only one. I was playing my Fed'Hadar in his Dreadnought, and got completely one-shotted by a quantum torp salvo while I was still at full health and full shields. It critted around 250k. Many enemies have been doing that lately. Not the first time it happened and certainly won't be the last unless the devs actually play the game on the holodeck server WITHOUT using any of their dev I-win buttons.

    My Jem is at lvl 65

    YOUR level isn't what he was trying to point out. There may still be some STFs that aren't scaling players properly. Before the last patch, it was pretty common to suddenly find yourself scaled down 14 levels in Kitomer space. So yea you're still 65, but for that run you're effectively at 51. And it wasn't just Jem'Hadar. It was everyone.

    I haven't had that problem with my Kanon'Foddar yet--but I recall our motto: Victory is Loss!

    Hmm. I'm only using a pure Fed non-JH to get into those battles. I should try it with my JH toon that to see what's happening.

    It's also easy to forget that if you're used to rolling the pilot spec tree plus zahl trait, give your all among other invulnerablilities + resists, a new fresh level 65 is going to blow up a lot more than a seasoned character.

    That is a good point, I have been mega critted on my main on ViL and that hurt

    Doesn't matter whether you call it a mega crit or borg invisitorp or whatever you're going to call it every now and then the NPCs on this game just vape you.

    Yeah. I've been vaped several times in places I shouldn't have. I respawn and hand them their behinds back.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    I'm finding Cure Advanced is the biggest culprit to helping my ship burn in space. Swarm/CCA/ISA/KSA/Rom patrols and Argala I can still handle easily, but get a couple of Raptors in CSA target you and you're going down fast

    CSA is still my favorite queue since CSE was removed.

    Yes I have noticed this, I found my Jem carrier to be unusually very squishy and getting insta-killed at times or just receiving huge random amounts of damage.

    You should be more concerned about the swarmers griefing you after they die.

    I remember when we had a button press that could do that but it was just "no fun" so it got removed.

    Very true, those warpcore breaches are insane since ViL hit.
    I think it was a cube in a RA that killed me with a 100k (post resists) breach.

    Running SRS MRP Vaadwaur Rebellion with a team of 5 on elite last night, my J, which is pretty much indestructible, was taken from 100% to dead by multiple salvos of around 50K a pop from all the Vaadwaur ships, I totalled the damage at over a million. LOL, now THAT's a challenge!

    Oh i also played Tzenkethi Front on advanced. Thats one is a slaughterfest if hit by the Battleships salvo.

    Yet, it's ok for players to mega-crit is it?? It's highly likely that NPC's are using the Sci Probability Ultimate or they lots of Crit consoles just like players do.

    The difference is that it's max. 5 players versus a swarm of trashmods which already had double or tripple the HP we have and now they can also waste us like our ships are made of paper or something. Which clearly wasn't the case up to june 4th.
    And the best part is that we don't know if this is WAI or not because as usual there's zero offical info about this phenomenon.
    I'm not saying I want the pre ViL state back where enemies could barely scratch my hull but something drastically changed without any note given.

    Bucketfuls of HP and mega-critting are how Cryptic creates "challenge".

    The shipyards have taken it upon themselves to refit every vessel in the game to be more in line with the kamikaze maru.

    Sadly they started with the fragility side rather than the impulse engines that still work even when offline.

    The thing is, I like the challenge, but on my Jemmy, he's bound to be under-powered compared to my main toon which doesn't have such an issue with the same enemy.

    This is getting annoying. My new Jem toon is not even undergeared anymore, I've done the work on it and its very well geared, and it doesn't matter what ship I fly, or how much damage resist and defense I stack, enemys crit like madd sometimes now n take 90% of my health in one shot, if I'm lucky.

    To be fair... the Raptors have ALWAYS been powerful PITAs. You'd think it would be the Negh'vars that would be the bigger threat, but those Raptors... they just plain hurt and ALWAYS have.

    I on the other hand have noticed no such "drastic changes" nor has my survivability decreased.

    Yeah - noticed this too. Just had a failed Fleet Alert of all things.

    I am no noob, and whilst I'll admit the char I was using was level 61, I was using my Atlas class which is (usually) a pretty good tank. Needed some quick Fleet marks so thought would run FA.

    Got to the final stage, and the Nausicaan boss ship absolutely obliterated us. Literally - it did a cannon scatter volley that wiped out the entire team. Came back to try again - hit by god knows how many torpedoes from who knows where. One-shotted back to respawn.

    This is FLEET ALERT. It is NOT the place for that sort of OP nonsense from NPCs!

    Jouret System Patrol, I'm in my Jem Dread Cruiser on my fed main which is very well geared. All I got was shields stripped and boom from Tholian torpedoes. Not once but about five or six times before I realized it was a lesson in futility and retreated out, watch out for Tholians, they hurt.

    Tholians are just about as good at shield stripping as the Borg. ESPECIALLY with their Tetryon. And they have this annoying ability to knock out your engines and weapons.
