The other missions I get through quite well its just Cure that throws me.

First you kill Nanite probes atached to cubes starting with the bottom ones or else warship will apear to early, well when I do that I get agro from the Cube every time and die.

If I defend the Kang from any ships that are launched I die, no matter how much I try.

If I do a combination of both I die.

The only time I seem to be ok is when its time to pop the Cubes because when everyone is focused on the same Cube as they should be the Cube will then ignore me most of the time.

Im also ok fighting the carrier at the end, but the mission usually fails long before that when the Kang is destroyed.

Basically the Cube kills you if you destroy probes no matter where your posistioned and the ships kill you if you defend Kang.

Now thats the mission straightened out onto the drops.
Are drops random chance for getting proto-tech because it seems that way due to playing missions where I was the star player and still didnt get the engine.
If it is random then its not fair, it should be ernt instead or a noob would get the drop before some one who has been hard at it for weeks.
class & build would help if you're still trying this, especially in PuGs...

But, two things:

1. Pair up, if you're an escort, then get a cruiser to tank with/for you...
2. Come in low. While the cube has more diameter than the probes, the cube is higher than the probes, so if you come in from "under" the structure, you can get probes in range but not have the cube in 10km of you...
Well, with the upgrade announcement leaving NX and Connie fans in the dust again, can we restart / revisit the T5 Connie and NX threads - since they will no longer be "truly" endgame ships... (after we get the T5 versions, it'll be time to see them added to the T5U upgrade charts too...
