Captain America Infinity War: Dulled? Nerfed?

So I recently finished a run of Abyss and got a Science T5C that I used to rank up my Cap Infinity War. I have to say that I'm highly underwhelmed with his damage output at R3. He actually seems to be hitting as low or possibly even lower than he was at R2.

Here's an example. ROL Juggernaut with class advantage, suicides on, 6 kinetic charges and a fury and he's doing under 40K on an SP2? I know it's a non-crit but those numbers don't add up at all. I was doing well over 45K on non-crit SP2 before without the suicides. Anyone else with an R3 Cap that can give any input?

    Juggernaut has increased armor which will reduce the damage he takes, unless you’re comparing Juggs to Juggs the comparison isn’t valid.

    Yet the attack boost for class advantage should more than offset that

    Not at all, juggs alone reduces the damage by something like an additional 20%. That’s not even factoring in the increased armor present in rol.

    Why am I not surprised to see another non-contributory post here...

    You could simply provide evidence as to how it's incorrect, but as usual that's asking too much

    No change in mine, 5 charges, heavy into sp2, massive damage.

    Your calling nerf or dulling without any real evidence but instead just a hunch. You made the post, you should provide the evidence. But you should also not call it a nerf or dulling. Instead, ask what's happening. Maybe someone else who has a R3 6* can shed light.

    You should title the post "Question about R3 CapIW" and then describe what you are seeing and ask if anyone else is noticing the issue. Instead you go all conspiracy theory.

    On a side note, well done on the R3.

    I haven't noticed a drop in damage with my 5* R5. Perhaps try a different fight to gauge your damage and see if it's across the board for your 6* R3 (which looks pretty raw dog BTW) @DalBot .

    My R3 cap landed a 155k crit on sp2 with only 5 charges.

    I couldnt get him to crit with the 6 charges after several tries.
