# 1 STF feedback

I usually avoid Cure space elite and the hive
i will never do this two stf missions ever again
even if my life of my account depended on it.

cure space needs to be redesigned completely.
and the hive needs a nerf. i know i love a challenge
but this mission seems to be one sided.

The problem with The Cure is lag and the Hive well it could some tweaking.

I don't see any problem with those on a good team. Hive is supposed to be tough, I've run quite a few successfull run with fleetmates. And I never had any problem doing cure with a good team.

If you pug no wonder you hate those, you get in there with new players, rainbow or skittle boat or someone who doesn't have a clue and you'll end up in a disaster which is why I don't pug those 2. I'd rather get a good team going and go at it.

Hive has been nerfed enough as it is, almost too much if you ask me, Its the heart of the borg unimatrix, its suppposed to be tough real tough.

I ran all 8 STFs last night on elite with the STFRaiders. We completed all optionals and runs in 2 hours and 18 minutes (~17 min average per). Some are more difficult than others, but all completable with a good group and a good strategy.

Cheers,

There is a problem with those two. And No Win Scenario.

If they are not intended for PuGs they should be removed from the PvE Queue and you should have to form private groups to run them.

I for one do not think they need their difficulty reduced, simply removed from the PuG system that gives one a false expectation on what their difficulty level will be. After all every style of player should have some content more their style.

That combo of shield engine and deflector has been nerfed since the blog was written. Infact a lot of whats in that blog is outdated and should either be updated or the entire blog removed from the site. There's a reason we don't revive old forum threads and the same reasons applies to bringing up outdated blogs like this. There may be good info in it but there is also a lot of misinformation in it now as well that may confuse people who aren't up on the subject.

If you don't personally think they are suitable for PUGging... don't queue up for them?

Some people are fine PUGging for it.

(I mean, personally, I wouldn't PUG an elite, and I agree it's an exercise in futility, but hey, I'm all for letting people do their thing)

Its also poorly done since equipment takes a backseat to stations, not to say I am laughing at the advice of the Interpid-R that should never have a turret build, should be a support ship and/or Tric bomber.

you can only complete infected ground elite and cure space elite with a good group
good luck getting good team in those in a random que because no proper way to unlock elite
