Rage Crash causing fake damage

    I was in monarch playing card challenge the other day, and decided to let myself rage crash. When I checked the board I noticed that something was off about my damage. Afterwards I went back into the same challenge, and decided to play around with the rage crash mechanic in the first room. I just used moves that cause rage crash, and then did nothing. Without ever attacking an enemy I noticed my damage kept going up. The damage that is delt to you when rag crashing is added to your damage out. I have tested this multiple times, and each time it's the same results.

    The dps I know don't use rage crash. So this wont affect them. This does however effect the rage tanks I know. Sitting there with there high damage, that 4th slot is for my Celestial healer darn it.

    So.. If I make a Red Lantern dps and rage crash all the time, I could top the charts when I really did nothing but hurt myself?

    They really, really need to let legendary PS players use the test server. If little signatures and crappy websites can pull info from PSN, SOE should have no issue.

    It it is the same as using Sacrificial offering from Sorcery.
    If you use Sacrificial Offering without the Red Aura it will damage you which goes on the Scorecard as both Damage in and Damage Out with you not having to attack or be attacked.

    You can kill yourself in the War Room spamming Sacrificial Offering and having the Sparring Target grant you enough power to spam the move.

    I already assumed people were aware that the inflicted Damage from Rage Crash was shown as both Damage in and Out on the Scorecard- goes in hand with why a Rage Tank's Damage in and Healing out are so high with this mechanic. If you have a Rage Tank that crashes a lot they will have high Damage out.

    But the rate of burn is not fake....the added self damage may inflate the numbers but the speed of Burn when people were Kamikaze with Outrage Spam was evidentiary or fast burn.

    No, unless you want to stand next to the tank and die a thousand times but you still wouldnt come close, come bottom most probably... dps normally and you will be topping the charts anyway more than likely, if you know what your doing. Only really effects tanks.

    They are technically doing that damage even if it is to themselves, it still shouldnt be showing as damage out though.

    Yes, tested with my villian rage tank. It is going for damage out and damage in on the scoreboard. Even if you rage crash slightly in dps mode and it doesnt kill you it gets added to the scoreboard.

    Don't even care about this. If someone wants to let their self crash and keep dying over and over, let him do it and get kicked while still having low damage anyway.

    Doesnt the Gadgets dummy still reflect on the scoreboard, too?

    Also, purposely rage crashing for fake damage is the dumbest scoreboard inflation available and is probably a loss of dps assuming you dont die, then it would be an obvious loss of dps.

    Yea the damage only counts if you rage crash if you die before the crash there is no damage out.
