I just lost a Raven (!) doing a Serpentis base I scanned out. It wasn't a DED complex, just a base, where I encountered the typical Core Admirals and such. No faction rats.

And promptly died.

Now, this concentration wasn't anything unusual. I've taken on about as many in missions and cosmic anomalies. In fact, I've even done other complexes with ease.

But in this complex, I could not even maintain a tank against 5 Core Admirals, not-withstanding that the same ship tanks Grand Admiral belt spawns easily. In the complex, I was losing tank at a rate I usually associate with being ganked by a ten man gatecamp.

Yes, hardeners were on. Yes, I was boosting.

Any clues?

Another ship / missile launcher was firing another damage type at you? I know some of the Guristas complexes / sites (which are almost exclusively Kin/Thermal in damage type) sometimes like to lob a 40,000 damage torpedo (EM damage, too!) every 30 seconds.

5 Core Admirals at their optimal range can pump out about 800-1000 DPS I think?
