Kirkfat and I tested this mission as a team at a time when he was using fighter groups (Not sure if that's where he ended up), and we got absolutely slaughtered. Then we tested it separately and I got through it, though it was a challenge, while he continued to get pwned.
Still, nothing about the difficulty takes away from the brilliant map design. Well done KF!
Thanks Drogyn. I had to finally accept that there really wasn't much that I could do regarding the difficulty. The mobs are now weak orions and one weak Borg as the space boss. I can't get through it, lol. But, others can.
I can't use the fighters because they prove nearly impossible to target in the core map.
