I upgraded my hardware and noticed I was taking a lot more damage. Like, getting hit for 100+ health damage by a single shotgun volley through toughness on my ogryn damage. At first I couldn’t figure out the causation but I think I’ve narrowed it down to one of two things:
legacy p2p code causes your game to inform the server that you’ve taken damage like a grade schooler informing the teacher they forgot to assign homework OR certain talents/passives get disabled if you toggle them around in the Meat Grinder instead of the mourningstar.
Either way turning the settings up and only adjusting talents in the mourningstar (i went with knife through butter since i’ve noticed a lot of bugs with both payback and raging bull that i’ve posted about as it doesn’t do anything to buff ogryns mid match) prevented weird damage spikes that i was getting nearly 90% of the time prior to that. Heck even towering presence started keeping me in coherency for longer.
Sorry I don’t really have any way to recreate or prove this besides feel but I’ve been playing my ogryn for nearly 300 hours now and I am starting to intuit what feels wrong, ya know?
