    A05C7FE1-70F6-41C0-AD26-CA32922E01FB.png ok - first this event anyway. I forgot how annoying the coin distribution is in these events. I get 5 coins on the winning team and both players that lost got more.
    At least count the damage I had to do to pop their shields so we could score points so I can get my fair share of coins too.

    Remove some of those shields and dodge their shots. They out-damaged you by a lot. It's been explicitly stated that coins are primarily based on damage.

    I understand why the score was what it was - I am just venting my irritation with the fact that taking down the defenses of a yellow boat is not scored the same as taking down the defenses of other boats. Same result in the end basically.
    As for dodging shots ... as you know easier said than done vs yellow boats.

    What good are forums if we can’t vent? :)

    All good points. I wonder what would happen if they counted tesla shield damage.

    At minimum - everyone who fights yellow boats with shields will be a bit happier I think.

    FYI, I took your advice and dropped one shield (seems counterintuitive but I replaced it with a gear lube - but not a good one). I’ll see how that works out in the end. Anyone who I play against now will have to thank you for a lower coin count if I stick with this.

    I’m not playing defender anymore. Switched to shooter. Would love to play speeder but my brain is too slow to control it :confused:
    I don’t know if I’m getting more coins now (actually overall I was getting ok coins even with defender) but at least my rivals are getting less - and that’s what it’s all about, right? (Making sure nobody else gets what they want ;))

    Actually Shooter+Speeder/Enfo with tesla bolt will favor Shooter since he's able to do the most damage, while the yellow boat has to run and keep stunning the enemies. And it's almost a secure victory against any team without yellow boats.

    Sniper doesn't crit on TS shields if you didn't know.

    Those of us without Tesla Shields would riot when we see how many more effective HP the yellow boats have over blue and red boats. ;)

    But seriously, I've been asking (as a side bar to other discussions) for some measure of damage vs shields in the battle report for a month or two.

    If it were implemented, practically speaking, if damage to pop a shield exceeded the Tshield limit, would that count as well? Say I hit the shield with a T4 epic flare that didn't quite pop it, then overkill the shield with a T4 grenade, would the damage report indicate the 900+ damage beyond Tshield hp, or would the report reflect only the actual 2100hp the flare + grenade cleared out.

    Looks like damage they take against the Tshield doesn't count against them. That sucks. Devs clearly favor one color over all the others.

    We demand equality for non-yellow boats! Give us credit for damaging their shields!!! Count damage vs shield as "damage done" vs boat (for purposes of coin calculation)!!!

    Yup. But thanks. If my flare isn’t ready then sometimes I’ll still hit the shield hoping it was already damaged a bit or maybe it’s a weak shield that someone put on hoping to give the illusion of a second good shield. When it’s just shield after shield it sometimes gets boring waiting for a shot (I’m impatient).
