Or give the thing some resistance to cannons. Its being perma farmed by escorts while other classes just hope to get in the top 10 :-p

Seiously Cryptic fix your loot system, it only rewards one class of ships.

So as soon as you get your escort go get your free blue loot.

Its in Alpha Centauri. Talk to the ship there near Ten or the Entity itself if you can find it. Blue loot in 15 seconds of work.

I have to agree... in OB when i played my Escort class I eneded up getting like 75% of all loot Drops.... no matter where i went... which was good for me but i felt sorry for others that got nothing from it all...

I primarily am an escort player... and I did well at the entity in beta (haven't been there in production)

But it is unrealistic to assume that the damage class isn't going to win a contest for damage... I'm not really sure why anyone is surprised by this...It doesn't take a team of German scientists on meth...

I like the idea of escorts vying for top damage honors, sure ...but there should be something possible for the other classes too... an equivalent event, or something...

Either make this sort of event with ship type restrictions, or subdivide the winners (and loot payout) by ship type...either / or works for me...

it even turned into a farmers' market in beta... sad, but true...

You know your game sucks when the economy is already ruined before the game even launches.

I knew Cryptic wouldn't even bother acknowledging this problem exists.

They are the laziest most incompetent developer I've ever seen.

...Is that even possible ? =)

But agreed ...The farmers will just do it forever and these complaints will snowball if they don't work it out...

I thought they buffed this thing since the beta? this is really disappointing to hear..not only is it so easy but why in the hell is it still rewarding the top damage dealers? how the hell are cruisers or science vessels going to get anything? we shouldn't let this topic die, keep it bumped cause this is a pretty huge issue to be honest.

not even mentioning the economy problem due to this...
