Point Defense: A story on how to kill your own ships.
« on: February 16, 2015, 10:57:31 AM »

I don't know what happened, but suddenly, all point defense lasers generate so much flux that they cause even the largest ships to overload in a heartbeat. I am not -entirely- sure what the dev was thinking with this change, but now in order to win ANY engagement, all PD must be turned off (it also has a bad habit of attacking ships instead of just fighters and missiles).

Am I missing something?

I believe there is a bug with the High Energy Focus ship system, that could be it. (there is a hotfix in the work that should arrive soon)

Confirmed at my side too. High Energy Focus have the tendency to blatantly increase energy requirements to the point of the ship to overload.

useful for taking down ships with point defense beams, I am almost sad it was taken down, auroras' are now MUCH harder to deal with
