Fix this thing Cryptic, or delete it. Parts of this game are impossible and this is one of them. CE and KA need reworked. If there are all these diff part of the game that people are skipping soon, everyone will just skip the game. Seems to me that a lot of people have left over frustration of things just like this.
Any mission that requires a specific group composition if, at it's core, inherently flawed.
At it's very core it's flawed in that it it isolates people from the mission, making some have to do the mission many times while leaving others waiting for their turn.
If you pug this creates a different issue in that other players who play a certain role become less desirable and so this may cause some to change their skill load outs, eventually creating either an animosity towards those who use that play style and thinning out their numbers.
That said, I feel that team work and everything aside, there are some inherent flaws in the mission that can make it too hard for people who have good coordination and abilities but their only fault is they choose to fly the wrong type of ship.
Okay - somewhat related question - and Faith - since you are a similar char, would love to hear from you.
Recently lead a group through the infected raid, and well - was a new twist for me, being the healer. Normally I do some healing - but in this case, due to make-up of the group, I was the lead healer.
So...what 'tactics' do you use on these raids to balance out healing and DPS? Do you intentionally go draw some aggro on yourself? Change out BOs so you max out your healing traits? Stay more in the back of the fight (hard for me) or ??
I am assuming you change your presets over to higher shields, and now, higher aux power to help your heals and tanking.
