Hey guys,

Trying to do this mission but can only seem to scratch around 5 players together, not enough. How do i get enough players to do it? (I'm in the UK). Can i carry on playing after having joined the fleet queue then it'll let me know once there are enough, which there never are

You need as many players as you can possibly get for this mission. I strongly suggest you make your attempts on Saturdays, Sundays and major holidays (Christmas and New Year's Day are coming up, which should be good days to see lots of people in the game) so you'll have plenty of available ships flying around looking for something to do.

If you have not done this before, or even if you have, the How To guide for this is worth reading.

Make sure you have a Kiter or Two......

You need 'occupations' to successfully complete this mission. Some people are needed to hammer damage onto the Crystalline Entity, reducing its hit points and eventually destroying it. However, other people are needed to blow away the crystal fragments it flings off, which will return to the Entity if they aren't destroyed, and they'll restore lost hit points to it.

The people who fly around and shoot the fragments are the 'kiters.'

Guide is here. I strongly prefer the Cannon: Scatter Volley (CSV) method.

Raid Alliance completed this several weeks ago. We used a core of CSV escorts, with sci ships providing tractor repulsors and a few cruisers with FAW for support. Thing went down in like 15 minutes. Piece of cake with the correct group and proper coordination.

Thanks, I didn't locate it.

I do know you should NOT Shoot the Torpedoes or Missiles, but if one Blows up, you need to shoot the Fragments they leave before they get back to Mama. (They Heal Her)

They get the Missiles from Mama to follow them until Mama is Dead. Keep ahead of them and string them out like a Kite tail.....Kiter.

Spent over 5 mil kitting out an escort specially equipped to take on the CE. Hope to get that trophy someday. :-)
