I didn't manage to get a screenshot, but this is very easily testable.

Take Sabotage Probe, get damage overcharge, hit someone with it. It'll tick for 120. Normal damage is ~40.

This is clearly a bug -- the patch notes claimed DO would do +100% damage.

Yup. I sabo probe'd someone last night on my blackbolt, and that 120 dmg finished off the dude I was on before I could finish him with lasers. Doesn't seem to be intended, given what the notes claim

Hmm, if and when they fix this (they should), it means all old TDM damage (and potentially even kill) records will be unassailable.

We'll have to create a new series of records for TDM damage/kills ... but to ensure people aren't submitting screenshots of pre-fix scores and claiming they are post-fix scores, we'll need some way to distinguish pre-fix and post-fix scoreboards.

BioWare, it might be time to add a version string to post-GSF match scoreboard!

The bug is that the tooltip is wrong.


Well, actually... we don't know. But I'd assume that, at least.

The bug is that it does not what the patch note said it would do.
