Now that I have reached level 50, most missions are almost worthless. I like running DOFF missions, but I don't like searching the map to find enough "good" missions to fill up 20 slots. I really like the winter wonderland because you can always find several good missions and win winter ornaments on criticals.
Is there any way to add more missions with a decent payout? I run the research missions and have 8 teams working at all times. I like the payout and love it when I find an alien artifact.
I would really like more engineering missions where you can build weapons or consoles. I already find enough engines, shields and deflectors that I can't build any or I run out of space to sell them on the exchange.
I also like the duty officer exchange mission, colony refugee recruitment, and cargo ship inspection.
I think adding more missions would make the game a lot more fun and allow me to play the missions more often as opposed to hunting for DOFF assignments.
OP was talking about DOFF missions...not PvE missions.
Sure, it would be nice if every DOFF mission gave you something great. But they don't. That's what makes finding the good missions exciting and worthwhile. If you could just stand on ESD and queue up 20 good missions, why would you ever go anywhere else?
Having said that, there are a large number of DOFF missions that should either be removed or drastically changed. Things like (3-days + 5 DOFFs) for a reward of 100ec and 117cxp is really awful and makes absolutely no sense. Rewards should be a bit more in line with what you put into it on a lot of DOFF missions.
I agree that finding 20 mission on ESD would not be fun. I only want to tweak the system so I don't have to spend an hour looking for decent missions. I'd rather run a mission. If we added a few missions, or increased their frequency, I think the system would be much better.
Ack, I completely confused my topics/forums, sorry!
On DOFF missions though, personally I'd like to see some more of the rare/very rare missions be part of an assignment chain, so you can more reliably work towards an end goal. For example, unlocking borg duty officers; I could definitely use some better duty officers, but I haven't once seen the reclaim assimilated drone assignment appear. It'd be better if this mission were part of a chain.
Basically I'd like to see more assignment chains, as I prefer the idea of working towards longer term goals in a semi-reliable way. Otherwise I spent a lot of my time hoping for assignments that never seem to show up.
