This is the revised version of the thread created during OB by myself to show exactly how I feel space combat is and showing my own experiences ingame through videos.

This thread was created because people on both sides claimed extreme circumstances on the game being either too easy or too hard. These videos show my personal experiences but I've also included some videos that Mark has done as well to show that it's not just me.

Right the first batch of Space based Videos are from the last week of Open Beta :

This video shows me fighting a Warbird at the end of an Episode which is a 0 rank to me, During the video I take out the Warbird in one strafe.

The second video is of me doing a Patrol Mission where I encounter Klingon Squadrons in Cardassian Space, Note how I engage the Neg'Var with 36% hull

The third video from Open Beta is where I engage a dominion Patrol

Those are my videos from Open beta, Now some of Marks videos from Open Beta :

Those videos got pretty ridiculous now for some Space based Recent retail videos from Mark :

And Now my most recent video from Retail is me doing the Episode " The Tribble with Klingons "

The first part of the mission in space :

The Second part of the mission on the ground done completely AFK, Had to be split into three parts:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdR-Sp3cqmY
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F65LKST2IgI

Apparently I made a FUBAR where I missed one of the videos in the upload where I'm talking to Dr. Jones and he tells me to do the Transport Pattern enhancers my bad. however it's no more than 1 minute of me reading.

The third part of the mission back in space :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQg2ySB2A2A

And the retail video where Mark did ground combat AFK :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlM89Fn-Tc0

Also below is the Txt version of the List Moose created of where people stand on the game at last count.

I plan to do a few more videos soon if I have some time this weekend, I still have to do the Deep Space Encounters and AFK Space combat when I get a chance.

Never to early to start! But offcourse we have to wait for the game to go live and test it again if they may have changed something without telling us?

I appreciate your experience here. I have fought a number of encounters recently with my Tier 2 Klingon Battle Cruiser against PvE Fed Tier 3 ships of all types. My shields took a beating, but I thought it was a little too easy to win those fights.

As a Fed, though, I took a Nova Class Science Vessel (Tier 2) on a mission against the Romulans, and I found my encounter with a single Romulan War Bird to be down right nail biting. I twisted and turned out of necessity because his weapons chewed up my shields repeatedly.

It was very difficult to bring one of his shields down, then keep it down for a torpedo shot. Often, after agonizing moments, I would drop his shield only to be forced away by damage, then watch as that same shield bounced out to full strength.

He fired purple clouds at me that froze me in space (still don't know what they were), then set plasma fires on me and grabbed me with tractor beams.

After 30 minutes of this sort of thing, based on the scenario, he went disabled. Not sure how that happened, but if it was a fight to the death, I don't think I would have killed him.

If you want a challenge, go find the Romulans.

"It's too easy!"

Strip off all your purple Mk X gear, go to Sol, buy "Standard Issue" gear from the equipment vendor, buy Standard Issue ground weapons and shields, and then talk about it being easy.

I love videos with people saying "IT'S TOO EASY!!" while they're spamming skills, lobbing anti-proton weapons and mega torps..taking on mobs at-level and saying it's too easy.

Just..love it.

Also crazy098 sent me a message telling me that if they did **** all of us off with the easy combat that would have been a potential loss of $32k per year on subs alone.

I think that's a pretty big chunk of people, that would pay someones salary.

Firstly, I must ask that my position be upgraded to CONFIRMED. :p

Secondly, I'm reserving my retail key until the 45 day patch, or until there's a patch that specifically addresses the difficulty in an upward manner.

I was chomping at the bit for the headstart 10 days ago. When the moment came along however, I just could not bear to log in and proceed to play at the ridiculously low difficulty of the end of OB.
