Yea i have noticed that the thing is people need to not get soo frusterated they quit and dont try again. we didnt complete it the first time in 49 mins hehe.. you know we post these to boost egos and such but we hope this will show everyone they are not impossible. try the strat Kor posted we used it for the 49 min run theres no need to wipe or zerg it. just practice makes perfect.. it helps if you can get the same squad to do it with you get used to each others play styles and gain confidence in their abilities..
I just did it in a pug (2xtac, 2xeng, 1xsci), 3 of us had never been there before including me, but we did have a guy who knew what was what and the rest of us listened to him. We did have a few wipes. It took us 2 attempts on each set of terminals until we got it - and I think it took us about 2 hours. But a lot of fun was had by all
Doing The Cure with a bunch of unexperienced PUG players who have bad gear and no clue what to do ... that's a real challennge you can't do in 50 mins.
the gear is important it doesnt have to be purple it can be mk 9 greens you just have to have the right type of equiptment.. i suggest dual split beams energy dampening armor. personal knockback shield and a mk 9 blue kit which u can buy in gonalda on a klingon and mail to yourself while your there get a bat'leth they help alot when keeping the workers off the nodes
Edit: before alot of you say I dont like energy dampening armor.. realize this . 95% of the damage the borg deal to you is energy. plasma to be specific. if you can get some with an added plasma resist even better.. but I keep extra armor and kits in my inventory.. you should too =)
