This guy was had Thermal Beam Rays on all six of his Venoms. They all died, barely killed a cruiser with 20% health left. Should've seen the battle lol - I mean thermal beam looks epic graphically and all but it was painful watching him lose everything to a VEGA 50 at 30% health.image

    TBR seems to be one of the duds in this update, I don't expect it to amount to anything until Shock shielding comes to trend.

    You have to remember that the level 50 vega has all the new tech on it.  So it has the bp shielding also...  Which probably makes it hard to kill.

    Looking at the stats, level 1 does not seem great, level 2 seems pretty good and level 3 will most likely find a home on some high level fleets, resulting in many extra crispy fleets and bases in it's wake.

    (i suppose )vega 50 have a combination of spectral shield and deflector shield.
    it's not surprising
    the thermal  didn't do the job
