    Hi Devs

    I have posted vids on twitter and had no feed back on them despite feedback on other comments.

    Superpowers are failing to hit a lot despite landing on NPC's and in vault presents.

    Fire: flame cascade main weapon in open world (don't use weapons) fails to hit along with other powers in vault and open world a lot recently. Resorting to using weapons to hit targets which defeats the object of PFT.

    Any ideas when this will be fixed please? Am I able to post video or links here for you to see the issues?

    I have 3 toons that are all PftT and have seen 0 issues. Could you be more specific on what you're experiencing?

    I'm noticing this on the seasonal outside stuff.

    Can I load video here? So you can see.

    Adds in seasonal open world daily mission are scripted to take 1 damage. When you apply DoT powers to more than 3 adds, they stop taking damage. DoT split damage will only work if there's 3 adds max.

    It seems like a simple solution for damage calculations to be if damage split brings the damage to less than 1 to round up to 1.

    Of course, I don't know the programming behind it so it could be more complex than what I'm making it out to be.

    Load to youtube first and you should be good to go.

    This was fixed last year. What happened?

    It wasnt missed. Its the same issue thats been happening for the past year or so. Just another silly thing that wasnt fixed. What Ive noticed though is if you get the ghosts out of the fire, they start taking damage so it could be a mechanic or a bug. We report, Devs decide.

    I've noticed this too with flame cascade on seasonal adds in Gotham. But no issues with my nature or quantum toons.

    Remember when people swung their weapons? Pepperidge Farms remembers.

    The whole point of seasonal adds taking little damage is so low levels can complete the objectives too.

    I only play fire and always thought it was intended that way,some fire powers don't do damage to seasonals,don't break boxes in vault,in earth3 open world daily don't do damage to boxes that are guarded by 2 npc's ......

    In the meantime, there is still the weapon option. It’s easy to kill npcs with your weapon and funny thing is, you don’t need to spec into precision :)

    Ice has always had the issue of not hitting objects with powers, like in the vault. Same with splitting of damage on seasonals. That's why we have weapons, though.
