Sometimes when i have an overshield (ie, defender or sunsinger melee) I can still take health damage. Sometimes I can die with a full overshield, and i'm not talking about being one shotted. Hopefully someone here can explain what is happening here, because usually in games like these it is usually overshield first then health. To clarify i mean that i am being hurt through my " blue" overshield.
Edit: pvp or pve, it does not matter.
Edit2: perhaps our overshields have a weakness like pve mobs.
I would assume it's lag. In PvP Scorch for Sunsinger is notorious for registering hits a few seconds late at time. If you have the shield up already and are dying with it still up that's weird. Are you taking damage and the shield has no reaction?
