Who do so many people assume that if they can't beat a mission, it's way too hard?
HSE is actually quite easy once you get to understand the basics. And believe me, the Unimatrices' Lance isn't the most dangerous thing about them, assuming you have a good build, then FbP(Feedback Pulse) is actually the killer. One tip - don't try HSE with PUGs, unless you want to see whether your build allows you to carry your teammates in extreme situations, because it is my observation, that most random players are way too weak for ISE, not even mentioning HSE...
You haven't played the Hive Onslaught lately. You blow up randomly even if the lance doesn't hit you. That, and the lances fire through the octahedron even though it's not supposed to. It's really THAT messed up!
The jar kitty is watching.
I hope Star Trek Online becomes a glory to behold once again!
