# 1 Spotlight Missions
03-15-2013, 08:01 PM
G Day All,

Are the spotlight missions actually tested before they go spotlight?

I'm currently rather sick in hospital and just wanna play some STO, having played all the other missions bar foundry ones I like to go in there for something different but I'm getting really sick of poorly designed missions!

I was just in the start of one, (to angry to rem what it was called) it told me to go around looking for these markers, now they where marked on the map but I couldn't visually see them WTF, I don't want to fly aimlessly around a map looking for crap I want to fight.

Is it at all possible to get a list of Spotlight missions that are actually playable please?

Some of the other foundry missions that are not spotlights are awesome but you don't get spotlight rewards which is unfair, can't the rule just be changed so that a mission that takes at least 30mins per map qualifies as a spotlight mission?

I've played some spotlight mission that the map just changes every 5mins and then your done, they are pathetic and shouldn't have made the list to begin with.

I actually don't want to play the game at all after playing some of these fail missions as it just takes the whole sto feel away from the game and it becomes just a bore fest.

aye, there are a lot of really good stories in the foundry.
and as much as its decent & playable, ''first cause, then effect'' isnt one of them.

for now i wish there where more rating options than just the stars.
checkboxes for
'series' - mission is part of a series
'accolade' - mission exists primarily for gaining titles
'farm' - mission exists for farming drops
'grind' - mission exist for dil reward.


that way i wouldnt have to wade through so much chaff to find content.

farmers would have their own place.

and grinders could get a place for pve challenge content. that rewards based on defeating increasing waves of opponents, timed challenges etc.

Oh good I'm not alone then.

If you guys want a really awesome mission my fleet leader has one for both Fed and KDF, its a massive space battle based on rpg stories he wrote awhile ago. I quite enjoy playing it alot however its not a spotlight mission.

You still get 1400 odd dil out of it though plus drops, there seems to be more drops on the KDF side and the mission is in reverse. To find it type

Pathfinder

into the search bit and it will come up, pretty sure its actually called "Battle of Hells Keep" on fed side but not sure what it is on KDF.

If you up for a good fight you could try my Series "Crucible of Battle". Its in five parts, and most folks have loved save to say they complain the combat is too much.

But, I am a devout PvPer so intended the combat to feel like Arena I like combat to feel like PvP.

I should warn you though it does get off to a slow start to set the scene.

That was Awesome, thank you very much for that. I played the first part of the mission today and will continue it over the next week and will let my fleet mates know about it as well.

The combat was great too
