# 1 Frustrated
03-05-2010, 07:30 PM
It's been a long game play & the heat is turned on but do you know what's more aggravating than Klingons getting in your face? It's prgrammers who can't knock the bugs out of the Star Trek Online game. I'm almost to the point of ditching the game.

You get 3/4 of the way through a mission & you're feeling good about the mission & then you're one step before finishing the mission & the trigger that ends the game never materializes or a glitch comes in & you just can't kill the creature or alien or doomsday machine or whatever. Do you know how aggravating that is? I spent most of my afternoon trying to kill the doomsday machine.

Do you know how many times I hit the the inside of the mouth of that floating stump called the Domsday machine with a torpedo spread & nothing phases it. It acted like nothing happened. C'mon programmers, I dont care how much new maps & adventtures or invasions you have in store, if you cant kick out the glitches what good is the game?

I've spent one too many afternoons in good faith trying to play the game, many missions are successful & I'm not complaining about that - kudos to you in the software engineering dept you did something right. There are other missions (that I'm talking about) that I enter, that just don't end right & do you have any idea how aggravating it is when the mission doesn't end as it should. Dont shrug your shoulders at me & save your grin for the drawing board. Fix the problem!! I paid for the game I expect the game to work perfectly from beginning to end. THANKS!

Now, did you report the problem at the time detailing what you did and what went wrong ? How can they fix things that they don't know about ? Now they know you had problems, but apart from the Doomsday machine you haven't specified which missions you had problems with. Of course if you did report the problems at the time nevermind .

Now I know I personally didn't have problems with the Doomsday machine on the 2 characters Ive done the mission with so far, nor in the beta when I got that far. But thats not to say random glitches occur.

I've had missions I've had to repeat 3 times. Yes, it frustrated me. One weekend I stumbled across 3 bugged missions. My fiance had completed them fine the day before. So, I took a breather and reported them. And, when I logged in the next day I went back and completed them with no problems. It probably was a random glitch like yours but at least they know it can glitch and they can look at the information the server stored for it and track what may have happened.

You are not doing the mission right is the problem concerning the doomsday machine. If you read the info as you progress, it tells you what you need to do in order to destroy it. It is very simple and very easy. Normal weapons do not harm it. Read the info instead of just bypassing the popups and all.

# 4 Fly through the core?
03-16-2010, 01:28 AM
Okay I admit I am not the best game player. I finally beat the klingon ships in my T2 Escort. I have gotten to the point where you are supposed to fly through or near (depending which directions you use) the planet's core. I have been around and tried to go through the planet so many times my head is spinning. I am sure I will figure it out sometime, but boy is this mission taking me a long time. It is a good one, don't get me worng I just want to find the core! Arrgh.

The core of the -cracked- planetoid not too far from the planet (+ rings) you are orbiting.

# 6 Thanks mission completed

Thank you Matt_Dravis. I finally completed the mission! Of course I only have 4 hours until work now lol. You were a big help I should have known those pesky Klingons were hanging around there for some reason. Duh.

According to the mission text that you are given in a persistent dialogue pop-up, you must collect the special torpedoes from the core of the cracked planetoid, equip it in a device slot, and fire it into the mouth of the Doomsday Machine.

Also according to the mission text, this only hurts the Doomsday Machine if you fire it (into its mouth) while it is activating its Doomsday Weapon.

If you run out of torpedoes, you can easily refill from the core of the planetoid.

Don't attack the Doomsday Machine with your normal weapons; it's better to leave it focused on the rest of the fleet, and your normal weapons are useless against it anyway.

# 9 Confusion
03-16-2010, 05:14 PM
I know I was confused for a while as to how I equipped the new torpedos (trying every slot until eventually...).

But after they were equipped, three shots into the mouth (and I believe the directions were to do it right after the Doomsday device used it's weapon) and the Doomsday machine was "doomed". Of course I was too close and exploded from collateral damage.
