Oh Brandon I'm not sure what to be more shocked about, that you believed we cheated or that you believe some parts of STO aren't "working as intended" .

Both Fed and KDF NWS complete now for me too and having done dozens more runs we've developed better/quicker ways to get to wave 10 at least but also beat wave 10. One of our biggest issues was 'wave 9'ing' - to rush 9 so fast we end up on wave 10 with everything on cooldown. Now we've got a virtually 100% perfected way to control wave 7 and 9 thus increasing our chances of beating wave 10.

All of our information will be published on stowiki and after we've given priority to those that have helped our group we'll open up our private group channel to the wider community.

Seems like an awful lot of trouble for pretty much nothing. For all the trouble the people whom beat this NWS business went through you'd think there would have to be some I Win gear or something at the end of the finish line. As it stands, there's a title up for grabs. While a pretty braggy title, it's still just a title. And some fleet marks. There should be a nifty uni console or something to motivate people to work through it. STO needs more rewards for hardcore players. This is an opportunity to reward hardcore players in a casually heavy driven MMO. I suggest Cryptic take it.

While I'd welcome any thing from Cryptic to the joke statue's in First City or a tribble to maybe a more acceptable a trophy (some fluff that won't affect the gameplay) I really don't expect them to.

I speak personally when I say I set out to beat nws because;
I seek the toughest challenges
Competing to be the first or one of at least to beat it on holodeck
Putting together and leading an awesome group of guys and working together
Accolades!!
And of course I don't believe in a no win scenario .


Really unless someone has the title of people always on or click on me/read this thread they won't know I beat it. I beat nws for myself.

P.S. depending in how quick and easy the team makes it they could rack up insane amounts of fleet marks, 173 (inc fleet mark boost) for wave 10 alone and overall 360+fm in 30m if you really wanted to be conservative about it but Luke STFs a really good team and be closer to 20m.

Finally got around to uploading the complete No Win Scenario run - Federation (been busy trying to finish off the guide so I can make it public and people can use it).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0CD8...ature=youtu.be

I decided not to include music for various reasons so feel free to listen to your own music.

I'll look at adding annotations, chapters etc but otherwise this is the finished product, enjoy .

Great Video - I did learn a lot-

Any chance of a guide or just notes in general?

It's a final draft that pretty much done just checking over for typos and rephrase to make it clearer and simpler. It's more comprehensive than the video as by this time the team of 5 knew nws inside out leading to quicker runs, and less time for things to go wrong. Should be on the nws walkthrough page properly in the coming week or so when I'm happy it's as good as it can be.

Thank you for your hard work!

Information has already allowed my team to almost beat wave 9. Though its harder for us because cryptic nerfed the tier 4 passive skill so its 10.5 times weaker than what it was. So we got our work cut out for us.

NWS should award a 1000 zen

Right now I'm figuring that my team will be able to do it once we get tier 5 unlocked on rep. Adapated maco sets wit 25% torp damage and increased aux power will help.

Before Christmas I've never been able to get past wave 7. Thx!

It would be awesome to hear other tales of how people have were getting on before reading the guide and after, it shows it works .

I saw a team get 8 last night then 9 so I'm guessing that wasn't your group but hey getting beyond 7 is an achievement in itself so congrats to your team.

The adapted MACO would be nice for 25% projectile damage although at the time I didn't have it. I think I'd prefer to use the Omega Force though for additional shield strip and more tactical deflector. Good luck in your venture, Cryptic's yet to buff nws .
