You clearly miss the big picture, but i am sure you do in real life as well. You are like the janitor who feels he is smarter than the ceo, yet you show up for work everyday and take out the garbage. If you understood anything about games like this you would have come to this conclusion:

Having anything in a mmorpg that excludes 95% of the populace excludes 95% of the paying customer.
Wow, you really ARE nerd raging! Too funny!

I'm of two minds on this one, having completed the final room with some effort (although not so herculean as it initially appeared), twice, both times with PUGs and no voice comms, the mission in general is a bit overly long and grindy, and difficult enough that if a death penalty were implemented, I would not play it. However, as it stands, it's not too difficult given enough perserverance to reach the boss, which is the real hard part.

Getting the shields down is a PITA yes, and if anyone on your team cannot jump it will quickly become a nightmare, but it can be done so long as everyone remains calm and focuses on the task at hand. As with all intricate actions, the greatest enemy is yourself. The boss... Can be a bit difficult since the means to defeating her lie somewhat in her own actions, but she's not insurmountable, just annoying. Like the rest of the mission.

It was a good feeling to beat though, but if rumors are right and we need 75 marks of valor for a single ground weapon, I'm going to cancel and say to hell with endgame content. I am not doing this fifteen times for a split beam rifle. No way in hell.

Edit: As much as a plasma-floor instant death platforming infinately-respawning trash zombieman mob room is terrible, I admit I had a bit of a nostalgia rush at the pace. I felt like I was back playing Doom 2 and shift-sprinting everywhere, spamming my plasma rifle at infinately respawning mobs.

Too bad the archvile is behind a forcefield.

10+ reattempts to get the shield down, people falling in water etc and our team broke after 4 hours. No reward tons of time sunk.

Let me explain something to you, making any mmo require twitch fingers to be successful is fool hearted and stacked with failure. Too much lag, poor character control, collision detection alll make for a very poor experience.

Did you want to challenge us? or punish us?

Hard is one thing stupidly repetitive and poor mechanics is another.

Does your ego feel better insulting people on a forum?

Come on, people are having problems. My opinion is that people are using exploits to "easily" beat this mission without a healer and 1 person short.

It would be nice to see some actual useful information posted on the forum but I guess that's too much to ask for.

1. My ego needs no help from anything or any one.

2. Like most ppl you cannot accept that others may be better or have figured out effective tactics and instead blame the game or accuse them of exploits, now thats ego.

Now this guy had the right idea he did not say that it was the game or that we were cheating or exploiting he just honestly and openly said he needed help and advise asked for it:

This is easily doable with the right team.
My fleet wiped the first night but on our second night after knowing what to do we found it quite a simple task.
Just keep practicing all, the difficulty level is fine as it is.

Good Luck.

The thoughest part probably is not to fall into the soup near a death trap. (Death trap = Spots where ressuration is impossible).
The rest of the mission is pretty easy and the Queen herself is no problem either.

Completed it a 3rd time today.

This time we had a full group of 5, and we got it down to about 2.5 hours.

I recorded the full boss fight, and made a little video which I submitted to FilePlanet. As soon as they approve it, I'll post the link, and everyone that is struggling can see how it's done.

This instance is too long. Too much trash and too much effort for almost no actual gain.

In WoW it used to be called a ****-block, until people started quitting the game and Blizzard realised that targetting the AVERAGE player was the solution.

We are not all super-human. And I sure as hell don't have 3 hours at a time to spare for the small chance of 3 downgrades in a combat form I don't play the game for and will never use. Ground gear? What were you thinking??

Seriously. Where's the rest of the ship bosses?

And CE.....what is that all about? If these 2 encounters are the way you intend to take things, you better have made enough money in the first 3 months to call it a day and be in profit.

The average person is........can you guess? Can you?

AVERAGE.
