Are the Data Cores still bugged and take ~no damage from AE abilities?

I was finally able to get into NIM TFB and did NIM Op9 last night. And the data cores do not get hit by Orbital sometimes. Same with Scatter Bombs.

Please fix, this has been out for a long time now.
This is hilarious and defiantly highlights the bug. All 3 orbital ticks hit the same exact spot, but only 1/3 is hitting, ha! Needs to be fixed.
DPS is science. Healing is art. Tanking is strategy.

I had 7 powertech AP flamer throwers completely miss in a row last night. Good times

I made a diagram >>>> http://i.imgur.com/h2Mo1gB.jpg <<<<
to show how i can almost consistently get ground targeted AoE to hit. Other than this the AoE will hit but won't do any damage to the data core. If anyone knows any other "sweet spots" that would be great!

p.s. this doesn't work for non ground targeted aoes like smash, scatter bombs and flamethrowers. it can work once in a while but it is incredibly hard to duplicate.

Bug is real annoying. Everytime I miss a deathfield I cry.

Yeah, it's really pretty messed up. I've given up running engineering/saboteur for that encounter when I really want to.

Have you tried something like this? http://i.imgur.com/h2Mo1gB.jpg

It'd be great to get confirmation from more people. So far this is how me and guildie Sniper try to deal with it. I still miss on it a lot though.

Yeah, it seems the core's hitbox treats ground targeted aoe different to how it treats point blank, frontal or such. Makes me sad to see an incendiary grenade hit with all ticks, yet have only one scatter bomb hit when I'm dropping every single bomb inside the bloody IG fire.

.
This really shows how unreliable even GTAoE is, though. All ticks from one orbital should hit the very same place (should being the key word ), and the fact that the above happens really highlights the issue.
