Diplomatic Orders Difficulty
Is the early mission "Diplomatic order" supposed to be this hard? It has me fighting against a group of Klingons with 2 NeghVars, an escort, and 3 Birds of prey. WTF? Really? I've died like ten times already

I finally got it, but why do I have to use "dying" as part of my strategy. It makes for not-so-fun frustrating gameplay. Any thoughts?

Most likely, you got auto-teamed (who then probably got DC'd) and that's why there were that many enemies.

For me, the mission had 2 groups of 2 or 3 BoPs each.

Open up your social window (o), go to the team option, and change the team setting. Should be the bottom most of the 3-4 boxes on the right.

This sounds like you were teamed up, possibly with people who got DCd.

I understand your frustration, and I also admire your tenacity. Taking on that many ships with just one Miranda must have been incredibly difficult.

Thanks for pointing this out!

Yeah, I turn off auto-grouping just before that mission because I don't want to be rushed through it or zerg it; which is the way most groups do it. I like to take my time, use strategy, explore, etc. Solo is often the only way you can do any of that.

The mission scales so block teams before you enter the sector.

I have turned off auto-grouping as suggested and have not had any more issues. I basically had to rush in and blow all cooldowns and try and take out as many as I could before dying, then respawn and repeat. I took out a BOP, then 2 BOPs, then the the Escort, and then I managed to out-maneuver the Neghvars around the asteroids and take them both out. Phew!

Where do we report little things like this, because on a patrol mission in Bhea I think. I was ordered to destroy these 7 shipyards and if I lined up just right I could blow the shipyards to pieces without "aggroing" the ships guarding it making the mission way too easy. I attacked them afterwards for the loot, but still, their aggro range needs to go up or at least they should begin attacking right as you attack their base.

Use the in game bug tool, it allows you to select current and completed missions, allowing you to specifically pick the mission which has an issue for you.

/bug should bring up the menu.
