For the first time today, I was the only lvl 50 in a federation Red alert. The other 4 members were lvl 11-23, and teamed with someone to be auto-lvl 50.
The first wave, the one we normally roll thru, destroyed the starbase, and the ships they were in, the connies, etc, didnt put out enough DPS to do squat.

Is a new bug that was just introduced, an exploit for more fleet members to contribute, or a new design? If WAI, it's going to be bad, really bad, and force/make you not want to use the auto team, and do fleet only so you dont get stuck with the lower lvlvs.

Thanks for any input/feedback, especially from the cereal box DEV or others

seriously , i have been playing this game from the start. i love star trek, this game has been fun for the most part. but lets be honest, the bugs have only seemed to grow over time. and these people only seem to want to fix the ones that appear to help us while dragging their feet on the ones that hurt us. in my opinion this is on purpose, because they are bored and need people to make angry. they seem to forget that it is us that makes it possible for them to earn money. without customers you have no sales, no sales equal no business. and sure there will always be someone willing to pay a business no matter how bad they are. but there wont be many paying for long. i know that if i went to a restaurant to eat and paid for a t-bone and they braught me a ribeye. that would be unacceptable. and i would get an appology from the manager/owner and also get my meal comped. at no point when this company has out right robbed us have they appologized or issued a refund. examples include c-store (or) z-store ships , we buy them because they have cool stats , then after the major amount of them have been purchased , they go and nerf them. if they were an honest company they would wait to put it out until they are done testing 'lol like they test'' and nerfing them, then we would know what we are buying is not a t-bone but in fact a ribeye. not to say a ribeye is bad but i dont want to pay for the t-bone when i am getting the ribeye. also it would be nice if the vet rewards could really match what we have spent in these years of being a customer of theirs.

My guess is that it works as intended, but I haven't confirmed which fleet missions--if any--are limited to endgame players. I've also noticed that lower-level players make things more difficult for endgame players in these, and of course the loot is (even more) worthless because if you have, say, a Commander in there you're not getting anything above mk VIII loot.

Dont mean to repeatedly post this here, but it's Frustrating. Just happened again, this time 3 TRUE 50's, and 2 lvl low's (one 14, one 17). You can't get past the first/second wave with these guys. If Cryptic/PW made this change as intended, then when a lower lvl is in your grp, the npc ships need to be toned down, or the young ones (low lvls) need some kind of huge buff to make up for the lack of weapon slots, consles, abilities..

While this can be frustrating, I had a group not long ago with some friends whom just started playing. They were Commander levels while myself and another Fleet member were 50's. One poor random chappy joined us as it was a PUG.

He went ape. I won't note down what he was say as it'd get me a ban I'd say, but it'd make a sailor blush, he wasn't happy.

We were able to complete the thing though, quite easily (obviously not as easy as all 50's), but it seems to be doable as long as you've got a good spread.

I'll agree with the loot table's too though, we were looting low level stuff mostly.

Well, some are DEF exploiting it, as I just had one lowbie I asked in Team chat what he was doing there, he said for easy fleet marks from you guys, and to need roll on item drops for fast credits.

...Great Bug/change Cryptic....Great.....

Any word on this or the many, many other bugs listed here?
Or do we have to wait for the DEV's to get back from their Vegas vacation before we see/hear anything.

You guys (DEVS) did awesome with what you put in for Season 6, But you need one big patch ASAP to make it all work right, and soon.

We did get one big patch after season 6 release. Didn't fix many of the big problems though. I'd link to it for you but that appears to offend folks here.

Devs rarely answer us here in the forums. 99.9% of the time, the first we hear about things being looked at is when there's a mention in the patch notes that an issue has been resolved.

You don't always have to queue in Quickplay. Private queues are there for you to choose who you want.

I think the match making is fine. My char is level 22 and my escort is stacked with dual heavies. I can mow through enemies just like any level 50 when I get matched up.
