Yesh…you got hit by five Elite Lucifer Cynabal’s and two Angel frigates; thats rought mate but it should of been slightly expected. Unlike most rooms in the Abyss, Angel ships exchange HP for damage, and massive amounts of it.
As someone said above, this is a rather rare spawn, in my time (and still doing them today) Angel cartel spawns are by far the worst rooms you’ll run into even compared to those with battleships or swarms of frigates because these NPC’s (The Angel’s) are designed to make you think fast and act fast to take them out before their heavy damage tears you to shreds.
What I’m guessing happened here is that since it was a T4 you said? With a Darkness setting which reduces speed by 50% meant that you were dead-to-rights upon entering this room because without speed you’d of just been chewed up with those Cynabals range and extreme DPS.
While I would say that this would belong to a T6, I dont also agree with that as I’ve seen some T6’s that would make this rare room look like a joke; and thats saying that lightly. As much as it does suck, this was just a lose-lose situation because you entered a room where not only did the abyssal space you were in reduce your overall speed but the game also dropped 5 extreme DPSing cruisers.
The only way you could of survived this room, and this is being kind, is having overwhelming DPS against the cruisers with rapid reload and thats in the best case, the Elite Cynabals only got 4.3k shield and 2.3k armor and hull with that armor only having 15% against explosive damage so at least you were using the right type of ammo in the situation but over all the only way you could of survived this is either having something hard for the cruisers to hit or overwhelming damage to kill them before they killed you
Again tho, as I said, the Angel Cartel rooms are the worst, their basically the games “Mini-boss” rooms personally as their practially designed to kill you as fast as possible before you can react normally…
