First field with 4 Transformers

First of all we make teams:
Alpha Team (2 officers - every officer with Stun Pistol and Sniper Rifle)
Beta Team (2 officers - every officer with Stun Pistol and Sniper Rifle)
Runner (1 Science Officer with Stun Pistol and Sniper Rifle)


Alpha team
Alpha Team protect Transformer 1 from Worker Drones.
Alpha team will only engage Worker Drones from a safe distance (25 meters from Transformer 1).
Alpha Team must not attack Borg Drones or Interlink Nodes. This is the only task of Alpha Team.

Beta Team
Beta Team will clear Transformer 2 from 2 Worker Drones.
Beta Team will only engage the Worker Drones from at least 25m from Transformer 2.
Beta Team must not attack Borg Drones and Interlink Node at Transformer 2.

After the two workers at Transformer 2 are dead, 1 person of Beta Team will run for Transformer 4. This person will do this without engaging in any form of combat. On arrival this person will activate Transformer 4 and protect it from Worker Drones.
The other person of Beta Team will join the Runner at Transformer 3 to help him/her protecting it from Worker Drones.

The Runner
The Runner will activate Transformer 1, Transformer 2 and Transformer 3.
Transformer 3 needs to be activated when Beta Team has cleared Transformer 2 of the 2 Worker Drones and is waiting at Transformer 3 and 4.
Beta Team won’t have enough time to run for Transformer 4 if the Runner activates Transformer 3 before Beta Team has cleared Transformer 2. So make sure this is timed properly.
When Transformer 3 has been activated by The Runner, The Runner will get company from one person of Beta Team and they will stay at Transformer 3 to protect it from Worker Drones.
I recommend that The Runner is a Science Officer, because a group of borgs will spawn close at Transformer 3 and will be all over The Runner. Also if you see any Borg Drones moving from Transformer 3 to Transformer 4, shoot it.

Attention:
Once Transformer 3 is activated, one ‘sneaky’ Worker Drone will appear who will move towards Transformer 2. The Runner and the one person of Beta Team will need to eliminate this Worker Drone first, or they will get into trouble protecting Transformer 3.
See http://yfrog.com/c9naaloj for the exact location of the ‘Sneaky’ Worker Drone (Marked with a Red Cross) and positions of Alpha and Beta Team.
The blue and green lines indicate the path Beta team needs to follow to get to Transformer 3 and Transformer 4.


Second field with 4 Transformers

First of all we make teams:
Alpha Team (2 officers)
Beta Team (2 officers)
Runner (1 Science Officer)


Alpha team
Alpha Team protect Transformer 1 from Worker Drones.
Alpha team will only engage Worker Drones from a safe distance (25 meters from Transformer 1).
Alpha Team must not attack Borg Drones or Interlink Nodes. This is the only task of Alpha Team.

Beta Team
Beta Team will clear Transformer 2 from 2 Worker Drones.
Beta Team will only engage the Worker Drones from at least 25m from Transformer 2.
Beta Team must not attack Borg Drones and Interlink Node at Transformer 2.

After the two workers at Transformer 2 are dead, Beta Team will run to Transformer 3 and stand on the rock near Transformer 3.
On arrival Beta Team will activate Transformer 3 and protect it from Worker Drones.

The Runner
The Runner will activate Transformer 1, Transformer 2 and Transformer 4.
Activate them when possible and after activating Transformer 4, defend it with your life.

Attention:
Once Transformer 3 is activated, two ‘sneaky’ Worker Drone will appear who will move towards Transformer 1 and Transformer 2. The Beta Team only kill the sneaky Worker Drone that is going for Transformer 2. The sneaky Worker Drone that is going for Transformer 1 will be killed by Alpha Team.
The Beta Team will need to eliminate this Worker Drone first, or there is a good chance the Sneaky Worker will deactivate Transformer 2.

See the http://yfrog.com/mvnaamloj for the exact location of the ‘Sneaky’ Worker Drones (Marked with a Red Cross) and positions of Alpha and Beta Team.
The blue line indicate the path Beta team needs to follow to get to Transformer 3.

Have fun and good luck

Has anyone else actually gotten this method to work? The strategy says not to kill the nodes. So ummmm the workers just constantly come back to life? Seems like SOMEONE has to shoot the interlink nodes or this won't work. Does anyone else out there have a strategy that is working? We had 2 sci, 2 eng and 1 tact and wiped repeatedly - unable to accomplish in time allotted. We want to try this, but I get scared when I see a post like this and noone even bothers to reply.

BTW - thanks for the suggestion, going to give it a try no matter what, I just was surprised that nobody bothered to comment or even thank you for the information.

So... Thanks!

Workers are not linked to the node, you can kill them without killing the nodes. They come not back to life, every time a new transformer is activated there are new workers beamed in, it has nothing to do with the nodes.

This looks as viable as any other non-aggro method mentioned in other places. B not shooting nodes or drones you avoid the need to fight them, and teh god aweful OP Elites in the time limit.
