so much for the Borg being scarry *yawn*





Also if it is supposed to be a 5 Player instance, why no auto teaming, like the PvP / PvE queue does?



On the other hand, it's an MMO, you know ...like in MASSIVE?
why not just scale the instance up if more player join in?

If there are 3 teams instead of one, scale the quest up to 12 Borg Mobs and give the Boss 3x the normal Health + 3x Firepower


Anyway, i'd request to put the Borg Cubes and Spheres to Elite difficulty, they pop way to easy.
The Boss ships are fine for 5 or less players, but could use a bit more Firepower, the worst damage i get is if i am to near to the explosion ;P

I died ONCE and did like 15 of them...
and that was because of the instakill V'Ger Torpedo (which i think is cool, just not fast enough, and it need's the V'Ger style sound effect when a ship disappears )


all in all

cool but not challenging enough
got hit by that too but my ship survived got to say it hurt though. and i agree with ya i went in with 3 other people and creamed everything in sight so i agree with cryptic in lowering the ships down to 5.

Correct me if I'm wrong... But is this the third down time this week...?

Gone are the days of the traditional Thursday-patch day, seemingly.

Oh for gods sake, its an MMO. The only way they can fix things is if they take the servers down. You want bad? Try Eve, or EQ2... Eve has 24 hour downtimes minimum. And the very first time I tried EQ2, the servers were down for a whole week. I lost 1/4 of my free time due to that.

I think restricting the encounters to 5 people is a really BAD IDEA. Did you even try this with Lts, or LCs? The amount of fail-groups is going to sky-rocket.

I wasn't complaining about it... Just making an observation.

Just... Take a deep breath, ok?

I pray to God that Crpytic doesn't restrict the instances to 5 people...those were virtually impossible...

A Borg FLEET is invading our space....and only 5 ships come...?

Hell look at Star Trek: First Contact. Only one Borg Cube at Earth and about 10 ships or so went ot fight it...10 fed for 1 borg cube....so now that we have a fleet of borg ships lead by a huge command ship, we were only supposed to have 5...?

I'd say let the 10+ continue, but give the command ships a tad more health.
