Massive Crystaline Entity Battle April 29th 0100 CST

ok we tried this tonight. i did all the leg work and got 7 teams into the same instnace. it didnt work because others were killing fragments, using plasma torpedos and mines....DO NOT do this....power engines and avoid every fragment. it heals the CE.

im going to do this again April 29th 0100 CST (Central Standard Time).

if you want in Please Send Tell (PST) to Liquor@Liquor.

i will get as many teams that want in, into the same instance.

everyone does not engage until we have all the teams standing by in same instance.

ill move in on CE first and agro all the fragments away. everyone kill CE. ill deal with fragments. ill just kite them away from you all.

when its at 30% or so larger fragments will arrive. they break up into smaller fragments and will heal it. hopefully im far enough away and i havent killed any that that will not happen.

to do this we ALL must work together. we can do this

all are welcome but we must work together. ill get as many teams that want in, into the same instance.

This is direct quote from Rushakra so kudos to him for getting out the correct info;

"There are three types of fragments:
Crystal Fragments: These are spawned all the time. They chase you and do ~5k damage. Kill them, kite them, whatever.

Large Crystal Fragments: These are spawned when the Entity reaches 30% HP. They deal ~12k damage and spawn three Smaller Crystal Fragments when they impact something. This can be either a ship or mines, so do not use mines and do not get hit. It is completely, 100%, absolutely OK to shoot and destroy these otherwise. People who claim that killing Large frags will heal the Entity are stupid and aren't actually paying attention when it happens. You will see three Small frags being formed after the Large dies, but they will despawn immediately. Their brief existence is a graphical or coding error. They are not real and do not effect anything. Kill Large fragments all you like. It's fine.

Small Crystal Fragments: These are spawned when a Large fragment impacts a player ship or mines. They will attempt to return to the Entity and heal it for ~1% of its total HP. Stop whatever you are doing and shoot these when you see them. As stated above, they are only spawned for real when a Large frag impacts something. Killing a Large frag will only create FAKE Small frags which instantly disappear."

The only other needed piece of info is.........
NEVER EVER EVER USE MINES AFTER CE REACHES 30% !!!!!!!

Follow this and it's a cakewalk

From what I saw tonight, this is easy. I'll kite the crystaline fragments while everyone else concentrates on the Cystaline Entity. we should not have to worry about fragments.

Make sure several people bring along the "Scramble Sensors" ability. The battle with the entity becomes considerably easier if a group can effectively cover it with scramble sensors.

Note: It's "Scramble Sensors", not Jam Sensors.

Scramble Sensors will "disable" all the fragments. The fragments will lose their ability to detonate on proximity / impact to a target for the duration of Scramble Sensors, and often even come to a complete stop during that time as well.

^^ this. before scaling fleet actions, i had actually tooned my science guy, a bridge officer, and grabbed some consoles to specifically help other people with the CE. once i set myself up, i can keep it locked down rotating between only scramble sensors 2 and 3.

This ^, no point doing it the hard way especially on a pug where it will be near impossible.

Hope I caught you in time. Missed you online.

There will be maintenance going on when your fight is scheduled. I'll try to tap you online again later if you miss this.

When you reschedule, I am in. Just let me know if you want a T3 science ship or a T3 Escort.

Cheers
