# 1 Infected = Insanity
03-04-2010, 07:43 AM
The respawns of areas you already cleared was crazy. Especially since the revive respawn point was all the way at the start of the mission. My team had to reclear areas and their 'nodes' twice, which is total b.s. I know, I know, they are the Borg. They adapt and repair...hogwash!

I had a great time not completing the mission. The space battle at the start was cool. It took coordinated effort, but was won fairly quickly. But the ground was like a crazy bee-hive. Again, I had fun, but the respawns were just insane. And the ambushes while engaged in combat was a nice touch, but again, insane.

Our biggest problem was we lost 1 of our team soon after ground combat begun on the station. So we were down to 4. We made it about halfway through the map w/out our 5th captain (who should be a damn ensing if he did not dc and just quit w/out a word). But after numerous deaths and suicide runs to take out the nodes, and finally getting a little momentum, we lost a second captain. With 3 of us left, we didnt even bother to continue.

To my teammates, thanks for the effort. It was a good day to die, even if we werent Klingon!

My reccommendation, even though I know there will be people who beat this, is re-examine the respawn points and the enemy respawns...or at least one or the other. I will try again as soon as my blood pressure drops. (lol)

You think that's bad? We got to the end and you need 3 people to scan 3 poles to disable a shield 4 seperate times, to get to each poit you need to jump across boxes, you die instantly if you fall and you can't respawn. If more than 2 die, you don't have enough to continue, you suicide and it all resets.
Heck even when you stay alive long enough the shields come back up and even when you're clearing out single points, Borg just beam back in to replace those dead.

With the average skill of random players trying to beat this annoying nonsense is ridiculous.

What's scary is that once three people take the shield down on one of the generators you get an option to upload a virus to it. My group was reduced to three people so we didn't get to test it, but uploading a virus to a single generator does nothing as they all respawn and shields are brought back up, which lead me to believe all four shields need to go down within 3-4 minutes and virus has to be uploaded simultaneously on all four generators.

I'm so glad I didn't renew so all I could do was try and beat yet another "CE".

Indeed. once the shield on the generator gos down you upload the virus then have 4minutes until the generator "rebots" with shield. so you need to get all four shields down and all four generators upload with in that time zone or you get to do it all over again..

Wow. That is pretty bad.

Was there at least a timer with a countdown after the virus is downloaded? Seems they werent kidding when they said in the update notes that teams will also need "a little luck".

Nope, that's not what you do. Try reading the objective.

No, thats not correct. We actually made it to the queen battle but whe hits for 500+ fire damage a pop so it ended very fast. Do NOT upload the vireus until all 4 shields are down, you only upload it to the last one.

Thanks for clearing it up. I was making a wild guess since three of us couldn't really check it out further. Giving it another spin tonight.
