Has anyone encountered the "rebound damage" glitch?
I have had to abandon the last two games because of a development where I am in a fight, win it handily, but the damagee is switched so that I take all the damage and the opposition takes none! This has been happening in the single game version.

Do you have screenshots or save games for me to look at this one? I don't think this glitch has ever happened before.

You don't "win" a fight until it clearly states that you have destroyed their ships. If this isn't the case, then the enemy fleets likely have techs that have defensive abilities.

NO screenshots. Sorry. IF it happens again, I will do so. No issue though. I mean I am talking a about having a herohero with morefighting capacity of the opposition with no hero. The data is displayed correctly (I have inflicted 1000hp on the enemy and I took three hundred, for exampole) but the damage bar shows me taking the 1000 damage and the AI player the 300. I thought it just showed as a glitch but nope, I killed myself :(

The number you see is the total damage your weapons deal. This is likely not going to be the enemy ship hp.

When enemy ships repair, more hp for you to damage, hence your number will be higher.
When enemy ships absorb your damage, you need to deal more to kill them, hence number will be higher.

My guess is that your shots are being absorbed while their shots are going right through your possibly non-existent defenses.
