So, I did try PVP for a few days, with some weird results.
There are times when I go head to head with other players, I do damage, I take damage, I go down more than others, but I still get some kills.
And then I run into players that put me down in one second, while they don't seem to register much damage (or any damage in some cases) even though I shoot them at point-blank. I'm baffled re. how they do so much damage while not taking much, it's like their both armor AND dps are maxed out.
I tried several PVP builds, balanced, tank, System's Corruption, etc. No visible difference in the outcome.
What the F am I missing?!
