A pve for 5 people, after about 5 deaths each just to kill the guardians, the 2 weapons protecting the queen ammounted to about 25+deaths each person without a single successfull destruction of either of the 2 weapons.... To put it simply they have incorporated too many repair and tractor spheres along with too many probes protecting the weapons, not to mention the over abundant damage the 2 weapons inflict just themselves..... I got hit by a single plasma torpedo for easy 89,000dmg one hit kills from almost every weapon they defend themselves with. So devs you all must have really been hitting the crack pipe when you designed that mission for only 5!

Unless you were super close to the target, you should have ample time to shoot down torps headed your way. Maybe it's easier on an escort running cannons and turrets but I shoot them down fairly quick without being off my main target for more than a couple seconds?
Oh and you may wish to edit your post some, otherwise that last line is gonna get this edited and/or locked by staff..

Hive Space is too much trouble for so few reward, go farm ISE for the mark rewards.
This. Even cure isn't worth bothering with anymore. Do ISE and maybe KASE once a day and your solid, anything more and your just wasting timr that could be spent slamming your head on the brain dead dilithium pinata in SB24
Yea... Hive Space Elite is insane.
First... 6 Tac cubes, and they expect us to kill them all in 10 minutes for the optional. Possible in a team of only full DPS Escorts. Maybe.
Next... Command Ships of Doom. Unless you got Power Drains on top of Power Drains... its just impossible. The frickin' Superlasers have a 20 Km range (Granted they aren't entirely accurate at times thankfully), Insta death Torpedo Spreads, Regen Probes that constantly come back...
Normal Command Ship tactics DO NOT WORK!
Tried my usual Circle the top spike. Died left and right. Tried parking right in its face in hopes that the Plasma Bolt would do lots of damage. NEGATED by Regen Probes that appear pretty much instantly after one Regen is destroyed. Even tried Harsh Language. And it is actually made worse by the increasing respawn timer. Whole team dies, back to Square One.
Hive Space Elite was actually the first STF I Rage Quit.
In short... this mission is NOT balanced for a team of 5.
I was actually in a good team today and on my first run we completed Into the Hive Space Elite with all optional successful, so it is possible, just takes a lot of team coordination, which we had, everyone was a team player, and was watching what was going on with everyone else, so everyone acted accordingly, like turning tail and running to stay alive when other people died, so we'd maintain the optional. It all worked, and we succeeded, over 100 marks for it.
Now, Into the Hive Ground Elite is another story, way too hard, they need to nurf it, and make the electro platforms also kill the borg that are on the square.
