You need to spec your space and ground skills to match. There is a drop down box on the top right menu of your skill tree. Highlight the powers you have and then put points into the skills the yellow box forms on. Some abilities will over lap ( hazard emitters and polarize hulls share the same 3 skills to train in). Don't pick skills because you like the name. They are built is pairs of 3's and you have to train all 3 to 9 points each to max it out. You don't need every ship skill either, place your points where it helps best.

Load out for space -
Escorts should have as much dps as possible. DHC or DBB on the front with a torp depending on your play style. You get the most aggro so prepare to run and heal some.
Cruisers should have a fair amount of hull heals and a shield heal or HE to give to escorts. You have to heal the escorts for their dps to remain in play.
Science ships- get gravity well and hold a bunch of borg as long as you can till the rest of the team comes over to help

As much fire power on one gate as you can. Once the gates shields go back up, probes spheres and then cubes in that order. Probes only goal is to make it to the middle HUB. I dislike giving this but gates have 180 second timer between the shields dropping.

www.omegaxiii.com is our fleet website. We are non RP and built for casual players. Give it a few weeks and the current STF's will not be an issue for you. Running in a group with 4 experienced players will help you learn faster then 1 experienced telling 4 people what to do. We have 10-12 experienced players who can play together and not even discussion our roles during these because we know what they are now. Any one of those same people can lead a group through an STF because we run them enough. PM @strykerv in game if you have questions more.

I do believe the OP has retired from this thread ( top of page 2 ). "Never-mind" Post.

On another note, I am just about sick and tired of narrow minded players denouncing everything helpful and hitting the rage quit button.

Need to get something done in this game there are solutions available, find them your dammed selves, quit complaining and play the dammed game, or quit, I don't care. You know who you are and so do we, and yes you will be kicked, dropped, left in the space dust if you have not a clue, get it, GOOD.

See, this is exactly what I mean... lol Help yourselves and leave others to fend for themselves... I thought this was an MMO not a FPS game!?!? Did I understand the meaning of MMO wrongly? I thought it turned around helping others and playing as a team no matter who you are where as in FPS, sure a team and Clan are good things, but not needed to play it. Am I getting this worng? hhhmmmmm.....

But ok... Guess I'll go back to fending for myself and just play the game for myself and be a hermit like everyone else and leave the Hardcore gaming of this game to you "Nothing else to do all day long other then play games on the PC" people.

Thanks to those who have tried and are willing to help out with this matter. And I feel for those of you who have a hard time with KA as I do...

I used to think this was impossible too, but its not, it just requires teamwork which is why experienced players are preferred. There are lots of posts on this thread now so I wont go in to detail about what to do, but essentially you should:

1. - All fly behind the left gate. Someone from the group goes and pulls the group of borg

2. - stay behind the gate at all times, dont move and all the borg will fly through the gate towards you while you kill them. The tac cube will try to fly through and get stuck.

3. - Kill the tac in the gate and you will do alot of damge. As soon as the tac dies everyone must buff and shoot like crazy at the gate. With the damage the tac did by expoding, by the time the gate closes you can have it down to 50% health.

4. - When the borg appear, everyone flys through the gate and shoots probes first. 2 people (escorts ideally) fly through the gate and kill a couple of probes on the way to the right gate. These 2 people need to be agreed before the start. The two escorts kill all of the right gate probes. Ideally they should have mk XI gear to be as powerful as possible.

5. - When all the probes are dead start kiling spheres but each player must be mindful of the time and be responsible for gettting themselves back to the left gate before it opens

6. You will be able to kill the last 50% in 2 or 3 gate openings so repeat the above until its destroyed.

7. - When the left gate dies some cubes will appear. Kill what you can but you may find that one cube is still alive while the right gate is about to open. If this happens get a cruiser or somehting with high sheilds to pull teh cube away from the right gate - everyoine else flies behind it ready for it to open.

8. - Doing the right gate is easier because you dont have to worry about the left. 4 players can do this no problem if the 5th is pulling cubes. Keep shooting it and killing the borg that appear unitl it dies and thats it!

Hope that helps, its how I do KA and works fine, as long as everyone knows what to do, has good buffs and weapons and works as a team.

I hope this helps you

Don't recall saying anything about not or never helped anyone through any STF, However I suppose that is what people do, put words into each others mouths, and you said that this is not an MMO, Multi Mouthing Offensive.

The guys in our fleet do them daily just for fun or if anyone just needs them completed. They do demand that anyone wanting to do the mission with them has Ventrilo and joins it, because they do take teamwork and nobody is gonna type out in chat what needs to be done all the time.

Communication is very important while doing STF's and if someone is not doing what needs to be done its a FAIL. We have helped many players complete the STF's as long as they paid attention and joined our vent for guidence.

Sure there are those that think they are "Elitists" but only in their own mind, not in the eye of the community.

If you want help in completing it, hit me up in game or mail and I can set you up and give you a set time they want to start it. Just know in advance that you need to have vent, and when asked join it and just follow their directions.

Good Luck !

The major challenge on KA is the opening fight, get a good tanking cruiser on one gate and the other 4 on dps and cleanup and its very doable. once you ppass that inital space event the rest of KA is cake

It has less to do with the difficulties of the missions and more to do with the unwillingness of people to listen and do what they are told. There are plenty out there willing to help but these people can only take so much before they just give up.

It takes 1 hour to do infected (give or take) ..... last week I went thru infected with a friend and 3 pugs. In the beginning I gave 1 simple request ... No security escorts or drones. Sure enough every time that skill came off cool down out pops security escorts. Every time I said to do something the pugs would just go off and do whatever they wanted. I got to the point that I just stopped giving instructions and focused more on cleaning up thier mess room after room. 2 hours later we finally finished ...... wonder why that is??

Until pugs realize they are not the uber Capt and won't be able to kill everything on the map in the Solo charge they are use to this argument is going to be an ongoing thing.

If you've never done the STF before and someone says to do something you do it. You don't change the plan, you don't do whatever you want to, you do exactly as you are told.

People also refuse to change out thier BO's for some stupid reason. Certain skills work wonders in the STF's and work every time. So why do people refuse to change thier BO setup if asked?? A Capt respec isn't being called for just a BO change yet poeple refuse to do it. In this case why should the experianced person even bother trying to help the pug??

It simply come down to people complaining that the STF's are too hard and nobody wants to help. Then when someone offers to help thier requests are ignored and everyone just fumbles around doin what they want to.
