Shakedown Missions are funny....
 
Really. In the Federation one the Bortas effortlessly tanks 4 high-end Federation cruisers for a while. In the Klingon one the Odyssey is able to two-shot the player Bortas. One Attack that immediately drains all shields and a second with multiple tricobalt devices. Nice reaction to the complaints that the Odyssey won't do enough damage but only take it....:D

I disagree completely, I feel like the Fed one you have to hit the bortras for a bit to get it to leave, the KDF one though, I made the ody retreat in all of like 5 seconds on my sci officer.....gotta love the bias though, the ody has max crew of 1000, and the bortras has 2500 LOL

Yeah but a big portion of that 2500 is slave girls and bartenders.

Actually I had an easier time killing the bortas with the odessey than I did the other way around. Sad part is my klingon is designed around an engineer/cruiser build and wasn't able to take much damage at all...where as my fed is designed around tact/escort build and I had no problem tanking the bortas and killing it.

Not like that was the only problem with the shakedown missions. I thought the fed one was well done and appropriate...resembling the days of the original cast and the klingons wanting to try and test their skills against the federation's best.

But the klingon mission being just a reskinned hash of the federation mission really disappointed me. I'm mean seriously. I don't care if the Federation is at war with the Empire or not (which I don't like to begin with) but to do an attack like that was NOT at all with in federation profile. A better way to have done it would have been to stick with the federation version and have the klingon captain get over excited and decide to make a jump to mars to test it out.

I'm really disappointed. Although after the past year of garbage, I really shouldn't have been surprised. Come on Cryptic, show us you care and redouble your efforts before this game truely does die.

I'm calling BS. Everyone I've talked to have said the same. Bortas does nothing in the fight while Odyssey kills your shields with one CPB3 and then shoots you with TS3.

Of course everyone I talked to must've been biased too. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

I just find the KDF mission so out of place. On the one hand I understand they pretty much cut and pasted one mission to the other, on the other hand I find it way out of character for Starfleet to just roll up and say 'Nice ship, open fire LOLZ'.

I mean, the Odyssey is being lauded as the next step forward in exploration, so naturally the first true test should be to pick a fight and take it into combat...wait, what?

Very lazy of them.

oddessy never dropped my shields on borta, and thats on a lvl23 character. Borta ddidnt do much to my oddessy but i was on a lvl50. Wonder how many people actually set up their skills and bars before fighting.

Did you think that the reason it didn't do that to your lvl 23 klingon was because it was low level?

You needed to set up your skill bars? I didnt set up mine when I was using the Oddessy on 4 of my characters and it was easy every time... no challenge at all. On the Borta though my shields dropped and I got blown up twice.
