I joined Into the hive ESTF. When we spawned, It was me (In my rewards destroyer) and 4 shuttles. Needless to say I tried for a few minutes, but it was beyond hopeless. So then I warped out. 4 shuttles.......REALLY

that shouldn't have been possible; shuttles haven't been able to queue for STFs since around S6's launch...unless they forgot to copy that part of the code over to hive when they released it

The nature of Cryptic's patch cycle leaves it vulnerable to reversions. Like the "beam to Qo'nos, I'm in the shipyard" bug. It's been fixed multiple times, and then the old code leaks in somehow.

Wouldn't surprise me much if some old code got used in the Hive, or if the old code managed to find it's way back in for all the STFs.

As I understand things, it has been fixed and re-broken like 3 times...

I found myself once taking both sides of probes and suddenly surrounded by 3 cubes. Fortunately there was another guy that knew what he was doing and we managed to save the STF.

Not a bad STF as such, but my paranoia does leave me wondering whether the Borg received a buff in the last patch.

Took my Fleet Assault Cruiser into ISE earlier - a good instance in itself, but the last cube's shield drains seemed more potent than usual, even with my MkXII Romulan/Embassy power insulator console installed, and I was one-shotted at least twice. I haven't changed anything on my Fleet Assualt Cruiser and it is/was usually FAR more durable than that!

Sometimes the Borg just decide that you need to die, and there's nothing you can do to stop it.

This,

I noticed this too.

But hey, the Borg are supposed to be bad asses, I would imagine their shield drains would be superior.

Shuttles were banned long long ago from STF's. Read back from the original post and you'll see lots of early shuttle stories. Enough of us complained that the shuttles were taken out. Thank Goodness.
