I dont normally play on Elite, seems like too much extra work for too few rewards so I have been happy with advanced. I came back to get my Sci-Fi groove on before the launch of that other game next week but now I cant seem to get past some of the missions even on normal. The Klingon mission where you fight fear, cowardest and whatnot... No matter what I do, its a team wipe in less than 2 minutes. I pause the game, position my team, lay down my turrets and look up to see my whole team is dead. I tried that mission14 times on normal and could not beat the second guy. I tried killing off the extras first but more just spawn. I tried concentrating everything I have on him but again, failure.
It is the same thing with some of the Romulan missions, I go up against one of the Mogai Escorts and this guy flys a circle around my ship no matter what I do, he always gets his front guns on me. His first hit takes my hull down to 50% and it is a losing battle from there. I even have the automated defense console and my ship and crew are all outfitted with blue items.
Plus now I have to worry about Dilithium and all the pay to win stuff on the C-store, the farmville BO system and now ship lotteries? Sweet mother of mercy, where did the fun in the game go?
