Just played a legendary game where my entire team got destroyed with little to no hope or explanation to countering the white beam. What is it, a glitch? A bug? An exploit? I think I’ll stop playing now till that gets fixed. :/
white beam of death
Purge Beam of a Tactical Cruiser, repeatedly drains, prevents module usage and increases damage taken on the affected ship. Also drains and increases the damage the Tac using it takes.
Counter to this is to either stay more than 5km away from it, or focus fire it down using the self-debuffs against it.
Or obviously disrupt it to shut it down.
It's legendary, expect at least some players to know their modules.
The best counter to a beam is to shoot the ship emitting it. It'll be armor broken while having purge beam active, i.e. it's easier to kill.
Uh, a 5K no fly zone around an entire team of ships is a little bit OP don't you think?
Oh well, it's been fun whilst it lasted...
