I am curious as to how we are expected to survive this. Worse is when you are close enough to the spawn point when you die that same Borg BoP gets you with another. Keep up the great work Cryptic.

Clownshoes outfit ffs.

Run all +Kinetic resist engineering consoles, atleast 2. If you have a 3rd slot you can run a uni resist. Also have auxiliary to structure boff ability as its resist bonus will be up 2/3rds of the time and the heal adds up pretty quick.

Also, if playing cure don't pug and if you do your only goal is if a ship is alive kill it first.

No amount of hull kinetic resists on anything short of a carrier will let you hull tank even a fraction of the torp spread volley in ESTF. You have to have enough shield buffer to absorb most of the volley. Keep those shields up. In other words, if you're escort/bop, you're sunk, it's impossible. Cryptic hates you.

I am able to protect escorts in Elite STF's all the time in my cruiser using extend shields as well as hull heals.

They get right up in the cubes face and back off when it gets too hot like they are supposed to do.

I would add that flying directly above, or below the cube offers a great deal of protection from the cubes projectile line of sight.

Its been a very long time since I have been one shotted in an Elite STF and I do countless numbers of them for my dilithium grind.

On the other hand its perfectly reasonable to expect that an escort will get destroyed periodically in an STF.

Even I get destoryed in my cruiser once in a blue moon.

Only reliable way to avoid getting pasted by Borg torpedoes is to attack from outside their firing arc. Between the invisible torp bug, the badly-overtuned damage output of the Borg in general, and Cryptic apparently not knowing how their own code works, you can't count on any level of resists, cooldowns, or raw HP to keep you alive from one moment to the next.
