I had some difficulty playing the mission "Cage of Fire" the first time I tried it and I was unable to finish it because my officers kept dying, possibly from falling off the edges. They just disappeared.
I tried this mission again yesterday after buying a Dell laptop (Alienware) intended for gaming. I was able to complete the mission but twice I had to go back to my ship and return. I had to do this because all my officers died and the reason they died was they just stood there and did not fight. Sometimes they would fight if I ordered them to do something, such as shooting at my target or using a chroniton mine barrier.
Similar experience as above. After killing boss i had to beam out as per mission then it said i had to beam down again and once down its asked me depart again. After that it still doesn't complete the mission.
I've been stuck on this mission for 2 months now. I can't complete it. And what do you mean you have to rescue them in the correct order? They are hostages for crying out loud. they don't care who gets helped first!:p
This mission is horribly buggy. I completed it with both my ENG and TAC. Both suffered though it with bugs including pathing problems and mission completion problems as well as just getting the darn boss to spawn. It took multiple days for me to get this done. I would try...discover a bug...log out...come back the next day...get past a bug...then encounter another.
I did it in march on my tac with like 500 small hypos and shield charges. The security escort helped cause all my BO's refused to move.
My BO's stopped moving and eventually all were unconscious. I finished it by returning to my ship two or three times and then returning to the mission; my progress was not lost when I left. I could have used security escorts since I was a tac but I did not attempt this mission as my other two characters and I would not have security escorts if I had played as my engineer or science characters.
Do only tacs have security escorts? I thought they could be summoned by a tactical BO having a certain ability but it did not work for me.
When playing as a tac, I normally do not take a tac on missions and take two science and two engineer BO's.
