A recent bug seems to have hitched onto our recent server release where Character PVP defensive squads are netting ridiculous amounts of damage. Our team is currently investigating the issue (along with Fleet Battles) and will have more information soon. A huge thanks to the Holotable heroes in Bugs and Issues who brought this bug to our attention so quickly!
Status updates will be added to this post. Cheers!
