Lets brain storm how to make away mission battles fun well my first thought is the following:
Break it down into parts like in most mmos sorry but current system is just so BORING. Instead of armor why not devices.. also give me a back pack or something....
combat wise I will have to think about but lets brain storm current away missions are boring as hell.So lets help invite a new one!
on combat my current thoughts
speed it up do more damage with weapons
Make cover worth while sometimes getting bad things does not work
Launcher weapons like photon launchers
maybe some vehicles? I dunno just brain storming
How about away missions with other captains AND thier away teams be awesome raid stuff...
