# 1 Hive Onslaught
06-10-2013, 10:00 AM
Caution: Grief thread ahead

<Seinfield Voice>
So whats the deal with the updated Hive being neigh impossible to complete?
</Seinfield Voice>

Seriously, I feel that the regular Hive is as difficult as Elites these days. Anyone else have a similar experience?


Apparently now there are invisible cannons that just randomly blow you up?

I'm curious if anyone else has had similar kobayashi maru experiences with the revised Hive. Perhaps a bug on the devs part?

If you would look what you get told, you would know that the Borg ships use Lance weapons to kill you, and that Regular and Elite is the same.

You & me were in that Same Normal Hive Onslaught. I did a Elite Onslaught last night that every1 after 1hr & half on the 2 Gun Ships finally decided to bail on. Those Invisi Cannons that can hit u from 20k out is just plan dumb if u ask me. Doesn't matter how much hull or Shields u got. that new Invisi Cannon the Devs have added to Hive Onslaught will kill u. I do feel that Hive Onslaught was hard enough b4 these new additions to it. now it's become Ridiculously hard on bot Normal & Elite. What the heck is PWE thinking changing an hard STF to damn near impossible. I mean come on not smart.

It appears that in an attempt to fix the command (cigar) ships lance weapon bug, they bugged it the other way.

They used to never fire their lance weapons, now they can fire it at you even if you are outside of the arc.

Actually did HSE yesterday, got 1 hit killed by Spheres which I thought was strange, then on approach to the Unimatrix ship and then again right when I spawned almost 20km away! The spawning one was the strangest, spawn and hit full impulse, right as I move forward I just blow up?!? Something is seriously bugged.

Was hard but doable, got nerfed ppl complained. Ppl complained after nerf, put power back but way too much. Got hit with 100k+ hits 3 times in a row without even shooting 1 shot, all outside 10km.

Get it back like it was at first, now wtf is the fun in getting 1 shooted without having been able to shoot 1 shot on anything with 100% shield and hull, spending component to repair ship than getting longer and longer respawn. Meanwhile you see you teammate getting 1 shooted too and in no time unimatrix ship is back up to 100%.

I like a challenge but at least but at least I'd like to shoot back a little before getting blown up.

1 shotting is Cryptic version of "challenge".

I couldn't agree more with these comments. Hive on launch was a challenge (even on normal), once that was under your belt, elite was another challenge.,.. getting all 3 optionals on elite was an occassion to celebrate... then the whining came... the inevitable nerf... more cries that it was now too easy... so insane spike damage was added.

Take it back to what it was previously... the borg did solid, CONSISTENT damage (limited spike (except the lances (which didn't target you if you were close to the queen).

I think if, in general, the NPC Damage should be increased by 20-30% on elite, maybe 10-15% on normal. But NOT SPIKE damage (i.e. Torp, Lance, etc) but their sustained fire damage.

Every single time I have played this at least half the people playing end up leaving. At that point I just decide to leave to. (Sorry for whomever I've left alone). I was hoping once I got some MACRO gear things would go better, but this thread doesn't give me much hope.
