Damage in the 82 is OTT

While my Pegs were repairing, I took my skulled U3 Dragoons (all refitted with a GlievePac) into an 82 and took nearly 5 hours damage!  I drove carefully and avoided all fire angels. All for 100,000 points?  I had taken minimal damage in the 80.  Something definitely wrong with those 82s.

    They turned the damage way up since last night. Simple as that.

    I am doing the 80 for around 25 mins and the 82 for 30 mins with steelheads crew. If I use a Demo squad and rep with a GM crew they are both dock insta.
    My Goons are skulled but I havent upgraded them at all.

    Its important in both targets you never stop, keep moving and target the little UAV turrets first.
    What me cynical, no, never, maybe!!, well I have been playing kix games for over 3 years.
    Remember its just a game, your life doesn't rely on you being the best.

    If you've got a reasonable amount of Sprint CM, you don't need to worry about the UAVs, main thing is to keep moving on the 80s, no point in doing the 82s at all as the 402s are so bad you can't get a set and the set points are very small, just grind 80s

    While my Pegs were repairing, I took my skulled U3 Flag Dragoon, 1 U3 Dragoon, and 3 U2 Dragoons (with only 2 Glaives in the fleet) into an 82 and took around 30 minutes of damage. I guess I drove carefuller. My fleet is near insta repair in the base in 80s. 
    I have a hard time believing that we are dealing with a company that is brilliantly scamming us AND entirely incompetent. 

    This is a private company in a capitalist market trying to make money - your money. Give it to them, or don't - but don't fault them for trying.

    Yep - It would appear that my driving carefully wasn't as careful as your carefuller - lol

    Sorry my response is a bit late-I have the answer to your question. Your build is the problem. You will need to rethink it. I am afraid I can't give you the direct answer HERE, but that is the issue as to why you are having problems.

    I find the 82 easier than the 80, (probably because I don't have as many sprints as you). But I have worked out a way of doing the 402 for around the same damage as the other two (as long as my timing is spot on. I agree the damage is excessive if you get it wrong in any of the targets, but I suppose kix has to set it up that way, so we are encouraged to coin our mistakes. And of course if they where to easy, people would just auto everything.
