Of course you'll get oneshotted fom time to time, but 20+ deaths?

STFs are pure DPS grindfests. Leave those Starcruisers and Intrepids at ESD and switch to escorts.
I do think thats kind of a problem with Elite STFs. Rather then be about strategy or anything else, they're simply about everyone taking Escorts and DPSing everything to death as fast as possible.

That is to say, they basically play like endgame MMO content in a normal MMO - instead of one about space ships. Ground exclude, but Ground Elite STFs are an entirely different breed of problems.

funny thing is ive done Elete STF's with an all carrier group and did it in about the same time as Hellspawny. but the things is none of us had antiproton or all MKXI if you mix up the guns you can take advantage of the chance abilities. like shunting down sub systems or damage buffs. personaly i think antiproton is way over used and not realy worth it in the long run.

It isn't hard though. That is my point!

Tetris seem more like a game that you would enjoy, you know, doing the same thing over and over with very little thought; you know, the same amount of thought you put into your reply to me.

Yes, I can see you spending many, many hours assembling blocks into the correct patterns. You like it hard after all...

Anyway, the STF on elite are still easy, while annoying. But I see why you enjoy NOT having to think your moves through, when the NPC can just one shot you, forcing you to re-spawn. Yes, Rinse and repeat seems to be your forte!

I totally agree with you on this point!

LOL! You are a young one aren't you?

Back to the point! Someone else posted...

Tactical Cube deals 70233 (195093) Kinetic Damage to you with Plasma Torpedo.
Tactical Cube's officer Heavy Plasma Torpedo deals 154249 (343931) Kinetic Damage to you with Torpedo Explosion III.

So, that is what you say is difficult? Maybe they should make it so every time the Borg shoot at you you just blow up and have to respawn? That would be harder right? You're a dolt.

When every person I talk to feels the unavoidable plasma torps do too much damage, I feel like maybe the dev's should listen.

Having said that, I've had a few elite cube battles where no one has died and we haven't had a drain carrier (when I play my drain kar'fi, it's very rare for anyone to die, but seems silly to require a ship type feds have no access to). Anyway, I've tanked the cubes in a cruiser and survived the torpedo hits, so it is possible. The real problem is you can't really prepare for them as you never know when one will be coming. Just remove their ability to shoot regular torps by adding more HY skills, or just reduce the dmg on regular torps. The rest is fine.
