i played on Advanced (TAC CMDR), he wiped the away team with the first thalaron mine (of course)
then i had Hakeev + 1 Romulan still standing.
I could not beat him alone, not even his guard (Hakeev is a Medic !? oh come on!)
after 5 deaths i tried to pull him, or at least his Bodyguard, to the Reman Group to help me out a little, of course both followed me there.
The Reman group was enough to kill his Bodyguard, Hakeev was still standing. then they were wiped by the next Thalaron Mine *jeez*, so only me and Hakeev left standing, then i notice his health is down to zero and he does not fight anymore but tries to walk back to where he is supposed to die?
But ...then he jumps on the next roof *ARGH*
Anyway since he get's stuck everywhere because of new invisible Walls he does a neverending loop of jumping on the roof, walking to the ...little bridge above the door (sry for bad english), and then he actually jumps DOWN but walks AGAIN to the same place where he jumped up the last time -> endless loop.
The jump behaviour of NPC's has not been fixed but appereantly there are more invisible walls so he can't jump up in the main battle area? ...this is not fixing the problem, but fighting the symptom.
I also have seen Breen jumping on roofs in the first Deferi Mission, i have seen Borg jump arround like Frogs in the Tutorial...
none of those situations are gamebreaking but Hakeev is not the only NPC who does that.
plz fix the Problem, not only Hotfix the current annoyance.
It's weird, I had to do the mission twice the weekend it came out because of the jumping. The first time, I had to redo the entire mission. The second time, when I got to Hakeev, he didn't jump at all. I did use suppressing fire 3 in order to limit his movements, in between destroying thalaron drones. Maybe that helped?
It's too bad it's not fixed yet, but I doubt I would be redoing the mission anytime soon, anyway.
That jumping is annoying as heck. I was lucky enough for him to die on the ground the first time I ran it, but it took like 2 minutes of me running around his corpse to find the sweet spot to "talk" to his body to continue the mission.
