Indeed. T4 Romulan really helped.

Postmortem of my second attempt at CSE, solo:

I can say, with 90% certainty, that it's possible. My strategy here is to make a loop around, killing BoP spawns, then picking off one lower nanite per loop. Once I take care of all 9 lowers it gets tricky. I noticed that the cubes did not shoot at me until I made one little fatal accident.

My autotarget locked onto the cube for less than a second after I took out a top nanite.

So yeah, the cube won't shoot me until I shoot at it. So needless to say, I couldn't really do much with the cube killing me when I approached. However, if I keep my weapons from firing on it, then I should be good. On this attempt, I actually killed the first negh'var I released, but I knew the match was doomed to failure when I accidentally aggroed the cubes. Anyway, I cleaned up the BoPs after picking off the Negh'var. So all that together tells me that, assuming the cubes aren't aggroed, I'm theoretically capable of soloing CSE.

So yeah. That's my story.

Indeed. The moment I get within 9km of a cube, it auto-switches targets to start shooting at only me.

I successfully completed a 2-man CSE, ISE, and KASE.

And the fact that said friend and I had to wait approx 2-3 HOURS for my friend to get two simple printouts. TWO TO THREE FREAKING HOURS FOR TWO SIMPLE THINGS!!

Just like me, every time I come into CSE with my plasma torp bomber B'rel and never even so much as breath on any cubes and mostly stay under enhanced cloak while everyone else is blasting away with loose scatters, they still single me out immediately and don't give a hoot who else is around spamming AOE when I'm attacking only nanites! It's like they either truly do have an intelligent AI that doesn't play by the rules of other STF's or they have linked aggro with the nanites! Wish they treated me like voporak, I even have a threat reducer.
