Personally, I loved the CE. I only ever beat it once, and that was in a PUG.
I loved that it was hard, and that you could spend 90 minutes trying to do it and still failing because people didn't listen to you. It may have been frustrating, but it was oh-so-rewarding when you finally completed it!
Bring it back. Add it to the public queue. Let those of us with some patience (and free time) try to beat it again!
I like the Crystalline Entity's model. Can it be placed in the Foundry or something? It would be interesting to use in missions.
However, as much as I like the Crystalline Entity's model, I personally see it as "some other" Crystalline Entity that grew different. The iconic Crystalline Entity from the TV show would be an amazing thing to see in game too, so if its revamped, perhaps we run into that one?
The Crystalline Entity was such a huge plot of the TV show that I think it would be a shame if there wasn't an actual mission, with story, about it in the game. So in that sense I'm not so gung-ho about it returning as a fleet action, so much as I am about it returning with some great story attached to it. Where did it come from? Why did it do what it did? Are there any more? What does that mean for the Federation (and Klingon Empire)?
Also, my co-host on Podcast UGC TerilynnS feels that Crystalline Entity was murdered in TNG, and desperately would like to see some kind of "diplomatic solution" for it instead. Just ideas.
I am a Cheestah.
Check out my Foundry missions
Fed: "To Helna and Back", "Rema Donna", "Animations with Helna", "Mudd's Weapons", "Waiting for Wednesday", "Monolith"
KDF: "Time the Enemy", "Time the Ally", "Time the Traitor"
When the Crystalline Entity returns (which it will), this is one of the primary issues we will be addressing. We just finished a new feature that will enhance pop-up help and notifications on when you need to do specific tasks.
That, along with other improvements to the CE, will put this Fleet Action back to being awesome (and available).
