All of the patrol missions are quite interesting.
If you play KDF a Bortas turns up instead which is a nice touch

I like all the patrols. They are much better than the old standard ones. The addition of random events like the Enterprise or the KDF flagship also add variety to it.

It's nice if you do them for the first time, but 15 minutes of plain pew-pew isn't exciting at all after a few days.

50 minutes? Even on elite it doesn't take me that long, what are you doing for the last 35 minutes guys?

Go in with a fleetmate or two, and it gets a hell of a lot more interesting. Take a team of 2, twice the enemies. A team of 3, 3 times as many...

I've not seen the intensity of a firefight with a team of 5, but I reckon it'd be the kind of battle to tell an awed crowd over a few glasses of bloodwine in front of the fire

Yeah I played on my KDF toons for the first time the other night and the Bortas warped in on the first two systems in the lower left of the sector map. "Death to the enemies of the empire!" She screamed. I thought "What the... where did she come from!" lol! Thats a nice touch.

Have to agree with most though, that they do get a little same o same o after a while.

It's a lot of Kill Five missions?

D'oh! I like the listen and talk patrols better.

Yup, this is the one I do 5 times

It gets even more funny when the Enterprise warps in and says "want an assist"?

I just sit back and let it face roll everything on screen in a couple of shots

Heh. I find the trade mission annoying, although it is easy.

I like SB234. If I (eng/cruiser) can get it down to about 80% health, I bet a team of good escorts could kill it.

Gamma Edridon Patrol. 5 Gorn groups to kill avg.time 4 min. per patrol (With well equiped escort). Gain 20% progress. Do it 5 times and in 15-25 min you'll get 60 RM. and u can wait Rep. Event and than collect reward and get more RM.

Enjoy.

Did the Trade one and the Herd Gekli one for the first time yesterday. I liked 'em. As to whether or not repeating them fifty or sixty times is boring - I've never seen anyone ever complain about running Elite Borg STFs a lot, so why should people complain about running the Rommie missions a second or third time? Oh, waitaminnit! Silly me!
I forgot! A lot of people think, 'purple' and 'MACO' are the five most important things in the whole world!
