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.

Yes its really bad now. Before not so many other than Mirandas.
now i know why so many people were asking where the CE was ... LOL well dat splains dat

yeah, but at what lvl do you get ramming speed in an escort? I believe it's near the end of the T2 ship range.

As a cruiser i was doing half the damage of escorts that where on my Rank. I was Lt. Cmdr fully equiped with MK2 items..some blue and some green. Mostly common. That was in OB. It's really hard for a cruiser to get to the top. Luck for me that a friend was in the same battle, piloting an escort and giving me some drops...in any other way i would have walked away with a bunch of batteries. I think this biggy needs some loot balancing.

Or we start by giving every player who participated in the fight some good loot

yea. and this goes for every fleet action, lol

the crystalline entity is just the most obvious, but if an escort does it's best not to die in the longer ones it'll still have the highest score when the round is over.

Its not easy I will give Cryptic that, but these are the things that needed fixed in beta and they said they "Have a plan for fleet action loot"

You have to give bonuses for healing.. bonuses for taking damage.. and then damage done. But it has to be very tightly balanced. They may be just waiting for peopel to get to the end game to finish up the new looting system? I do not know.

Yeah, I tried to do this mission and by the time I read the instruction some farmer had completed the mission. Don't blame them to be honest, as theres not much else to do atm.

What bugs me is that even missions that worked in beta are now broke, like the defend sector mission.

Thing about this is that its much worse then just the loot system. The aggro system is entirely based on Range/DPS as well. Running top dps, also means you run top damage taken. Which funny enough, only escort pilots will heal another escort pilot so you see escorts as the top dps, top heal, and the top damage taken. So yea, I don't have a problem with escorts also getting all the loot.

Eh. I don't so much see the Crystalline Entity as a Loot Pinata, as rather a Refit Station.

Lots of people who are there farming it are rather generous, and give out the blues they don't have a need for to others who do.
