I defended the design of the mission this was based on because of the NPC commands you can give the squadon, but now you've lost me. I shouldn't need AA or Theta or point defense to have even a chance at an optional.
Did this yesterday with four people and we got the first 3 optionals, and failed the last two (we started with five, but he left and didnt come back right at the start)
with five it is very possible to do this in time. its hectic but it can be done. you just need to remember to kill ALL of the shuttles before you focus down the walkers. (and no you dont need some special paid box gear to do it either). My shuttle was using a polaron cannon (lol) and a quantum torp launcher with torp spread as my slotted ability. Alpha pattern + torp spread = several dead shuttles each time.
but yes i agree whole heartedly, this event lasts about 20 minutes, it need to be worth more like 40-50 marks, with 75 being the top prize for beating every wave in the time limit.
