# 1 Elite Mode sucks
06-27-2010, 03:37 PM
RA 5 w/ all MKX purple gear for myself and BO...
A few observations while playing in elite mode...

1.)Elite Mode is way unbalanced. I get 1 shotted too much, especially w/ MKX Rare gear
2.) Drops suck...They should only drop "Large" Hypo,Shields,Battery...why small in elite mode???
3.) Way outnumbered most of the time. Especially against the Borg....
4.) Space mode I can hold my own and survive...but the drops suck....more Blues and an occasional purple.

Comments?
Ideas?

I have to agree that elite seems pretty messed up in ground mode at level 45

It's like that because it's supposed to be. Elite mode is for the highly skilled gamers that want a real challenge. If your not good enough at it but still want a little more challenge, try advanced. Practice at that level until you feel your ready, and then try an elite mission or two.

I'll be honest, I'm not good enough to play elite. So I play on advanced. Its difficult enough that I do occasionally die, but its not near as overwhelming as elite.

Personally I enjoy elite mode. I've been playing since closed beta, and with a few exceptions in the beginning, the game seemed super easy until they introduced elite mode.


The drops ARE better, but still random. So at times its probably possible to get a bunch of bad drops that make it seem like you arent getting the loot you deserve for playing elite.

Just play on normal.

Playing on elite or advanced is just waste of time nothing else.(and ground fights are already to long for my liking on normal,no need to make it worse)

I have been playing since day 1...a few hours a day. So my experience is not the issue...
I can walk through Advanced without ever dying...Elite is just way too unbalanced...1 shotted??
come on...thats not even fair-

The quantity of drops on Elite are more so improved.

The quality of drops on Elite are only improved slightly.

Thus, you can still find batteries on Elite but you'll also have a chance of seeing blues as well - all-the-while you'll have nearly double the # of drops.

As for one-shot elite mobs, this is currently being investigated.

This has been my experience with elite drops as well.
