Damage numbers don't add up?

    Sometimes when I die, and I see the people that assisted in killing me and how much damage each and everyone did, the numbers don't add up. I remember before the new death screen, you could see the killer and the two other enemies that did the most damage. Now, you can only see the killer and one more player who assisted (I think). Anyhow, it doesn't matter. I've noticed when I know I have full health and go against two people alone, the numbers sometimes don't add up to 100. Say, the killer did 45% and the one that assisted him did 15. I don't get it, why is this?

    I played on Indar, spawned a Prowler and drove away from the base, met a Vanguard and I'm 99.9% sure only the driver and his gunner dealt damage to me, no one else. I can't recall exactly, but the driver did somewhere around 25 damage and the Halberd gunner did 40 or something = 65% damage, yet I died from full HP.

    Is it just a bug which they don't care for fixing... or what? Because I've seen this occasionally for a long time now. Long before the new death screen was added.

    Your soldier probably decided it would be best to DIE IN HONOUR AND COMMITED SEPPUKU. The Republic HAILS YOUR BRAVERY!


    I've noticed it too occasionally, I'm also wondering how Kill Assist XP is measured.

    So many things in this game are broken right now that I don't even pay attention to numbers on the death screen :(

    I think the current death screen only shows the top 2...maybe an AV turret hit you somewhere in there?
