THEY'RE THE BORG. The new Hive space is much better. Its a lot harder and represents the first true challenge i've encountered in this game.

As for the dil being lowered in SB24. Of course it has. It was there to make up for the loss of STF dil but now thats reinstated, it can be lowered again. You can not have everything spoon fed to you. Earn it. Work for it and have fun doing it.
Challenge yes but not to this degree. WE had a timeship with us as well and we gave up on it. face it, there was not raon to touch STFs only had new ones and yet they did excatly that in a bad way.

give time for tactics to be laid down for it these new ones are tough especially since they have 2 souped up Unimatrix's for you to fight and it does require a good plan on how to handle that kind of punishment like targeting the regen probes they spawn before those things have a chance to heal it.

beat it a few times in a (sit down for this) BIRD OF PREY.

it's your team, not the mission, which needs a rework.

Here are a few things you apparently failed to take note of the first run, so we'll go over them again...

The Borg Queen uses Science powers, just like a player. The unimatrix ships ALSO use science powers. This means you need....

a Science Officer with SNB, especially at the final stage against the eight-sided-dice-of-death.

It's also helpful to have someone on the team with crowd control, drains, and team-heals.


amazingly, just doing "Moar DPS!!!" isn't going to win the day for you. Big shocker there, it's one of the things a lot of STF'ers with experience have been wanting, and surprise-an all Tac-captain-team in Escorts isn't going to do the job this time.

an All-cruiser team isn't going to do it either-you need a balanced team to make this mission work. You may be ill-used to the idea of doing that, but the difference is as sharp as the difference between "normal" STFs and "Elites" in the last season-what works everywhere else? maybe doesn't work so well here-but it's neither impossible, nor unworkable unless you're so inflexible that you think what works in ISE is going to be worth a dime's difference in Onslaught.

I agree with the posters that are saying retool your play,i myself am using the sci vesta, and im practically screaming at the borg (like donatra)to target me so i can do stuffs like pop all my heals/resists and the activate my graviton shielding when under borg torp spread 3,not to mention the quantum shield bubble.but yea graviton shielding =fbp for kinetic dmg hehe.

It makes me laugh that when anyone has a game mechanics issue there is a certain crowd of people who just have to drop-by and let everyone know how awesome they are, lol.

Lower dilithium rewards mean that you have to grind more for the same result. No extra dil from salvage only aggravates it. No loot bags mean no ec and no decent blue/purple items on the exchange. This will force you to buy stuff from dil stores (fleet/romulan/omega).

Doff reassignment prices are still "adjusted". This means they are still outrageous.

And I wonder which dilithium dailies will be removed with next "maintenance patch". Feds already lost 2880 dil from the daily routine.

Its still a cash grab, but this time they tossed us some scraps.
Yeah cause 0 to 480/960 is clearly nothing at all. Boy are we mad.

Oh yeah no Items to turn in for extra Dilithium! Forgot about that.

What? Whats a Borg Neural Probe?

You can get those from Elites? You can turn in 5 for a 15second project to get 5 omega rep and 1k dilith?

And yes you have to buy weapons from the fleet/omega/romulan store. Why? Because thats the next level.

We used to get comparable weapons virtually for free and now you're complaining you have to I dont know... Work for it? Work a little harder?

GET OUT OF HERE!

Christ you people are never satisfied.

Get over it. Yes Dilith costs are up and Dilith gains are down.

More like they took away your unlimited bread bowl.

And then we complained.

So they gave it back but with less bread in the bowl so you have to get up and get more, more often.

So... We complain again.

Huh.
