I missed posted this in the PvP forum so I wanted to repost where it's supposed to be and see what everybody thinks
I used to enjoy Infected Ground Elite. At least once I got the hang of jumping . But, the past week I have failed Infected Ground Elite nearly every time. It seems like there have been a flood of new players hitting the STFs. Not knowing where the trigger lines are, not knowing what injuries are, and your average need ninjas. But the mission seems harder as well, especially the last room. The drones seem to be spawning faster. Lately by the time you get to Rebecca drones in the corners have already started to respawn. Almost every time I've died this week I've gotten swarmed by drones, not Rebecca.
Has the mission gotten harder or is it a string of bad luck?
I wouldn't care, but I want the prototype PSG tech.
definately feeling that. Yesterday I lucked out and got several groups who knew what the point was, and how to do their part. Today, meh back to normal disaster mode.
Guess I could go work on my new Carrier some.
I haven't been playing long enough to say if the mission has increased in difficulty. I can say this is the only STF I try to avoid playing. Most runs fall apart in the final room before ever engaging Rebecca. The drones do seem to respawn to soon. Also, it's very easy to accumulate injuries in this mission and I too have seen a large number of players go without healing and make themselves a likability. For now I will just continue to grind CGE until I get my proto weapon :p
usually i do the IGE like that... but since 4or5 days ?! the drones seem to be aggro for no reason.. i mean i stand at generator 2 ( left side ) and i get shot by a drone from thh opposite ... ive no threatcontrol but sometimes it seems the drones get uber aggro ..lol
also i have to say it really feels that they spawn quicker than before.. really weird especially when we were shooting rebecca and then get flanked by a ****drone :/
well something similar goes for armek.. sometimes/usually we get him down within 7-14 seconds...
but for soem weird reason he was 1 hitting the entire team on some matches... we were all wearing maco set and IDIC buffs ...and then he airstriked 4 of us... at teh next try 3 of us got airtriked and at the 4 try i atleast decided to attack him from far away with my sniper ... as scientist .. so i was able to heal my team .. until he spawned thh cover shields...
its nice having a challenge but to be honest it is sometimes depressing when armek is just godlike...or the drones at IGE respawn to quick
it really seems to be randomly because i had the same teams and it was 1 time extreemly hard and the other time it was extremly easy..
oh an then even with optionals we didnt get any TECH ...that atleast need to be changed...a 80% dropchance of tech when completet the optional would be nice ...
and a 75% dropchance on success without optional.. really... it annoying to not get the tech after a nice match.. its like we did al for nothing...
I have had much better time this weekend. I'm pretty sure now that there's nothing different about the mission itself. I just had a run of bad luck with groups. I'm three for three finishing Infected Ground Elite tonight.
In two of the missions there were players who were new to the mission but spoke up and followed instructions.
I don't think that Gozer will adjust anything. I think that playing with rookies is part of the fun. However, if they're not willing to come prepared and learn then it becomes "fun." That's what I've been struggling with for the past week or so.
