I am looking for a group interested in running this to achieve the optional. I have ran this almost 90 times with no luck. I have read http://www.stowiki.org/Mission:_Infe...us/Walkthrough as well as a couple other sites and also watched a few youtube videos as well and ran the Standard STF SEVERAL times.
So far this is the only STF optional I can't seem to complete in a PUG.
If interested contact me in game: Sare@hokeb1 My Time Zone is Eastern Time Zone (EDT) Or NYC time for the time zone challenged and I'm usually on after 8:30pm
I've never had any issue with the channel, I've had way better runs with them than I ever did with pugs, that said though the IGE optional is extremely difficult, even with the best of the channel with the best team compositions I've only ever made it once every other time we've been 1 or two rooms away (we once had all but 1 of them and the timer ended the second before he registered as having beamed out, that was infuriating).
In short you might as well try the channel, you have nothing to lose aside from (upto) 30 minutes of your life and perhaps an optional and accolade to gain... worth a try right?
The channel isn't filled with ULTRA ELITE players, but I've never had any real problems with it. Ground Elite optionals take a level and kind of assertiveness and teamwork that some players may not be comfortable or familiar with, even if they've cleared Space Elites, especially Infected. Infected Space takes the smallest fraction of teamwork that Infected Ground does, but if the team gets a good rhythm going, the latter can go as smoothly as the former.
i,m in the same boat this is the only optional i have left on one toon. have had less the stellar results. every time i play it though public Que some one screws it up. so feel free to contact me in game lately i,m on my engineer toon goes by the name of Krystal my other toon is a tac by the name of Bruce. would really love to get this optional done and over with.
