I recommend you have a look at Beam Fire at Will or Cannon Scatter Volley, or both, depending on your weapons loadout. =)

I think my fastest Infected run is ~8 minutes and Cure being around 9 or 10.

So yes, the Optionals are very possible.

You cold just ram against the cube. It will slide you vertically. Not aesthetically pleasing, but the result is similar.

Those have a cool down, I guess my real problem should be stated- The outrageous damage from the torps PLUS those torpedoes that just seem to fall outside the visual spectrum.

The thing is, not everyone catches everything. I can complete teh Cure on Elite too, does this mean I never see or get one shotted by them? Nope. They're overpowered - a general rule is simple as saying 'Any shot that can kill a player in one hit is no fun'.

Even with FAW, it's not guarantee that you'll hit a HYT Torpedo. On my newbie VA with no weapons with ACC and only 6 rank is Captain ACC skill, I've missed a HYT 27 times in a row before I hit one particular HYT (i.e. 27 damage tics that missed during a 4 beam arrays broadside with a FAW running). Those things are now very hard to hit.

I'd *much* rather be teamed with a bunch of escorts, of any sort, than the flood of Odysseys and Bortas's we're seeing now.

Escorts = damage, and damage = speed, and speed = optionals.

No kidding. We were done in, like, five or six minutes. It was a very quick match, the fastest STF that I have ever been in.

... if they all launched their Multi-Vectored assault at the same time,
and they all launched Scorpion fighters
and they all fired off mines with Dispersal Pattern Beta 3
and all 5 were Sci Capatains that hit their Photonic Fleet
all at the same time
would that much spam kill the internet?!?

That much spam would be like trying to play the Starbase Fleet Action. (>_>)



The team was all in MVAM at the same time. That was how I could tell them apart from the generic escort type.

And I was a Sci-Captain using Photonic Fleet. Too bad that wasn't all MVAM holo-fleet. :p
