# 1 Combat difficulty
02-06-2010, 05:15 PM
I know there was a lot of talk about the combat difficulty in Beta.

I was wondering what people think of it now?

I myself I find it way too easy. Both on the ground and in space. I must admit I am only Lieutenant 5 or 6, but the only real challenge so far was fighting multiple patrols of Klingon's for the Defend Sector Sirius mission without regenerating shields in between or luring two groups together, and that while trying to be alone. Or taking on the 3 warships plus numerous BoP's together with just one other starfleet vessel. There hasn't been a regular mission that has made it necessary for me to use my crew and abilities to their maximum.

And I would love that feeling, to win by some well-timed high yield torpedo volley against the correct shield quadrant which just dropped.

Now it's just too easy. Even the minefield around some asteroid: just fly through it, it can't hurt you. Not so cool.

So, what do other people think?

I still stand by my request for a difficulty option.
The problem with choosing bad skills so you get bad and the game becomes a challenge is that it doens't feel right and your fleet won't be too happy with you, and raidisodes might become too hard then all of a sudden.
A difficulty option just for single player PVE (to avoid a load of trouble) would really mean a great deal to me

Thanks for reading, please comment on this, thank you.

Enemies cheat to be completely honest when you play higher levels

Playing as captain here is what I am encoutering.. it doesnt make the game harder just freakin annoying

I fire Torp high yield III thats 4 torpdoes... hit his front shield... still up.. barely any damage to hull that also includes me firing beam overloard 2 with my dual tetrya beams and tacyon....

they fire high yield III at me... my shields down 50% hull down 50% thats with me using brace for impact III....


Sorry crypic instead of letting your horrible NPCs cheat why not given a better brain...


also question I dont play a klingon so that why I am asking but how often can they cloak? I just got in a match with an NPC and he cloaked fired another shot over and over and over and whenever he cloaked and I hit him did 0 damage

Well for some reason me and 3 other friends in T2 ships were only getting one cruiser at a time and hardly any Battleships, We used to get groups of 2-3 cruisers, a BS and 2 BoP at once. It was so much funner then. I am not sure if this is a bug or what but it is making grouping not as much fun. Its way way to easy. It used to be more difficult in a group but not now. If it does not get harder it is going to make playing the game quite a lot less fun. I hope they return it to what it was in early open beta.

omg I am not sure if that is a good idea me and a group did ghost ship last nite and it was 5 of us vs at least 12 battleships 20 escorts and about 30 corvettes. At last count. They were suppose to be in 4 groups but since the 8 x 8 area was small it ended up in a massive death match for us. We wre finally able to wear them down enough to make it more of a fair match but man it was plain stupid.

Really, well maybe they get harder in T3, not sure what lvl ghost ship is, but running lvl 17 missions is crazy easy, we just blow through stuff like there shields are down. We are one Science ship and escort and a Cruiser and its just way to easy. Anyway, i hope if it gets harder latter they balance it downward a bit so its more even.
