I've been trying to do my Enemy Signal Contact missions in the Sirius Sector Block, and the last four I went into were filled with enemies ranging from +31 to +40. Needless to say, it didn't go well. Please remove the level scaling and keep the contacts at a fixed level.

# 2 Keep level scaling

I disagree with removing level scaling.But as a community member i will happily sweep sector contacts of these higher level enemies and leave before it resets.

It just makes me feel bad to have to ask my fleet to help me with a simple Enemy Contact Signal mission in the game's beginning sector.

Yeah, it really doesn't make sense that these scale in such a way. All it takes is some high level player to enter (possibly on very good intentions, but not realizing the harm) and after a respawn... you have groups of +40 or whatever enemies flying around, instantly vaporizing people who are legitimately trying to do the DSE.

Also, why is it that sometimes I have a hard time even getting into the fight? There are no contacts currently in the sector block that I can fight with. The ones I can fight have a red circle around them with ships flying around inside, but the ones I can't are a single Klingon ship flying through space. What determines if I can fight one or not? If it's not the level scaling, then it's something else. >_>

Half of the Sirius sector is empty of DSEs -- I suspect it's a "lore" reason because otherwise they'd be too close to Earth and patrols keep them away. You can always join a DSE that has already begun, regardless of your level -- when they're the red and glowy thing that looks like a battle, close up. Flying around as a ship, though-- you can only initiate battle when they attack you. They will only attack you if they're within ~5-7 levels of you.

Yeah, I've noticed that... I can't just engage in battles anymore when they're flying around. This would be handy for gaining accolades that you missed before.

On the note on levelling. Surely DSE should be related to the area you are in, not the people fighting in it. But, I can see problems with that; a high level person can go through and destroy everything inside and cause grief to legitimate fighters.

I keep trying to find these to have revenge from when I was a lowbie, and I never can

Then again, as a lowbie, my greatest sense of accomplishment went from running as an escort at a group of 3 BoPs +38 or something silly like that, blowing one up, and running the heck away just as his friends got ready to blow me up.

I am serious, I have tried this I don't know how many times and I never get enemies my level. I think there is a SINGLE group in the sector that's always +42 or something, they're klingons, and they have these +40s mixed in with other low level contacts. But ever since I leveled up I can't find them, sigh.

I have the impression that the last sector (highest level for the patrol) of the region means higher level enemies.
I never have this problem while cruising in the other parts of the region.
