ELT STF's are to Easy
My teams Record times so far from start to finish

cure 5:12 w/opt. 0 deaths
Infected 6:34 w/opt. 0 deaths
Kit 6:12 w/opt. 0 deaths
Onslaught 8:54 w/3 opts. 1 death

I'm working on doing the grounds next

Now my issue is this is end game content why is it so easy... I want a challenge, the only challenge I get anymore is in pvp and even then a good match is few and far between. I'm making a plead to the devs to make STF's real end game content like they used to be combine both ground and space STF's so you have to do both in conjunction or at the same time. And make the Borg like real Borg. A threat! Right now all STF's are just a grab at points and not a challenge.

For a challenge, play the eSTFs with all white gear and restricted to the free RA/Brig Gen ships.

Here's another challenge: Do elites with PuGs and try not to nerd rage.

Congratulations you've reached the top 15% player base of the game! You need a challenge? Then no win scenario is for you!

There is a guide to get you started on the right path. ^_^

I know it may be hard for you to believe, but 85% of the players of sto have problems with elite stfs still. Since increasing the skill required for estfs would make it impossible some players it wouldn't be wise to alienate most of their player base. FYI Estfs were incredibly easy in season 5 and have received buffs to make them harder.

A few examples of the buffs: in season 5 vampire power builds could turn off a tac cube's shield and weapons with only one ship. They then gave the borg power insulators so now it takes 3+ vampire builds to turn off a Tac Cube's shields. In season 5 Borg were no longer allowed to crit. This helped reduce of you getting hit with random one shots. They gave the borg the ability to hit you critically again this season. In season 5 I could solo ISE and get optional! Haven't been able to get optional yet this season, but I haven't tried as hard since I've been playing no win scenario.

So they've buffed the Borg, and you're still think its too easy well good sir/ma'am you're a top player in pve. :D

I already beat no win not that hard. Still it's end game content the developers shouldn't have to make it easy just because other players don't develop skills needed to play the game. I take it non of you played when STF's where a real challenge and took about 30 min to an hour to complete.

some people might still have problems true but thouse good players should still have a challange.

maybe bring back the pre-ses5 stfs? yah know the 2-3 hr ones that actualy had story to them?

wolfpack12c 01-20-2013 12:56 PM

I loved the pre s5 STF's see someone understands

Out of curiosity what ships were used to get your record times? Not looking for full builds just generally speaking like 4x Escort, 1x Tank Cruiser or what have you.
