I just got done downloading the patch, and I really want to get playing. Best I can tell the emergency maintinance started around 6:30 and it says it will take about an hour. Has Cryptic been pretty good in the past about estimating downtime, or should I come back tomorrow?
So far they are 1/2 on being right about the down time. The first patch took no more than 2 hours while the second patch took over 5 hours when it was originally estimated to take only 2
Guess I got lucky...it killed me once so had to rethink my strategy, went after it again and killed it on second try solo
I never actually killed it ... during one of my attempts, I got the shields down, and then it let me beam the hostages off the ship. Why that time and not the half dozen times before it, I have no idea, but I wasn't going to complain.
it would collapse one of my shields and take my hull to below 50% in one hit I had to spend the rest of the time trying to keep the other shields from collapsing and attempting to do what little damage I could. It killed me three times in a row and it moved over right above where I spawned so I had to fight it every time I spawned.
Shiled Batterys makes a world of difference.
Also dont let it get sideways on ya, or your getting hit with everything its got, try to stay directly behind it.
