# 1 Looking for Recommendations
12-13-2012, 09:25 AM
I am looking for recommendations of Foundry missions that are similar to STF content that run in the 15 minute timeframe a typical STF does that is ideal for a group of 5. This would be something a team of 5 might do alternative to STFs in an effort to earn fleet marks.

Not interested in missions that do not qualify for the Officer Reports mission.

Thanks!

You will not find any missions that are 15 minutes to qualify for the daily. The officer reports daily has a 30 minute timer. So a 15 minute mission wouldnt do you any good, IF they were even eligable for the Officer Reports. There is one so far that ive found, that ive done solo, and with a team of 5. It's called Battleship Royal. It can be completed in roughly 20- 30 minutes. Being Captain spawns, it also drops good loot. This is a space only mission. If you are KDF, i dont think you guys have this one.

If Cryptic has put a 30 minute average time on Foundry missions to qualify for officer reports, they have messed up. The target should be 15 minutes for a team of 3-5, because that makes Foundry content on par with STFs and a viable time/loot/reward alternative.

The 30 minute officer report cooldown is fine, what matters most from a Foundry consumer perspective is the qualifying time for individual missions. I wait an hour to do Infected Space Elite twice, that's not the issue. What makes ISE a good choice is the time it takes to do it- ~15 minutes. Longer than that and it gets harder to get a group.

Then you say this which is completley opposite from the above..

I like the changes Cryptic made with Officer Reports. I think they got it right. As for your dilema, I guess I'm lost. I have no idea what you are looking for. You said you are only interested in missions that qualify, then you say you want it in 15 minutes. I dont see how that will happen with a 30 minute cooldown.

For me, with a 30 minute cooldown, i simply search 20-30 minute missions, and everything that pops up qualifies. Perhaps someone else can give some suggestions because i dont think i understand what you are trying to say.

The misison repeats on 30 minutes.

you do not need to play a 30 minute mission. 15-20 minutes missions are fine. battle royal can be done in about 15-20 and its qualifies.

any mission that does not will highlight in red.

in fact battle royal is probably a good place to start.

Check the hot list and top-rated for a mission called Battleship Royale Rumbe (something like this). It seems that a ton of stfers are playing that specific mission in groups.

I haven't played, but I'll guess that it involves lots of boss battles and a group of 5 playing on elite will get some nice drops.

One reviewers claims that he gets over 300k ECs worth of stuff to sell on the exchange from that mission.

plus you'll get the dilithium and the FMs.

I'm kind of thinking of making an stf if more stfers would group to play a foundry mission.
