In fact it was 'Insurrection', not Nemesis or Resurrection.

I agree, bring back the old Briar patch mission. It was lots of fun, don't give into the whiners who want everything to be stupidly easy.

Indeed, it is by far to easy.
Rollback to Beta Status please!

agreed, undo the stuff you did. Just did it again yesterday and ye gods, it was pretty much set it to autopilot and go out and make coffee, nothing to worry about, nothing to look out for and absolutely just a timesink.

I would like to applaud with mission designer for the original Briar patch. It was brilliant. Utterly brilliant. A piece of work I'll hold close to me for quite some time.

Not everyone 'got it' though. Which is to say, a few loud people didn't get it.

It saddens me deeply that instead of helping to raise those poor individuals to a level of gaming that allows for such creativity, instead the mission was reduced to the lowest common denominator. We as a community are worse of because of it.

Briar patch was fine.

I will simply say that I think the whole game needs to be cranked up a few notches of difficulty. I understand the being easy but even those are a joke. In CB and OB if someone asked for help it was a honest request now its just laughable that anyone needs any help at all. When one ship can take out a battle ship 4 or 6 levels above it plus its little frigate helpers and barely need to use emergency power to shields even once... its sad.

I very much liked it when you had to work at it. When your shields were yellow or red most of the time but so were theirs, when you won and it felt like a fight or you didnt hit full impulse cause you needed to heal up...

but yes the new briar patch is beyond a joke, needs to be the way it was.

I didn't think the Briar Patch mission was very hard before the nerf. It was just slow with a bit of caution. Now it's just slow. So very slow. /sigh. Sloooow.

I'd rather it go back the way it was.. 1 or 2 shots at the Metron and they go BOOM. You do still have to be wary of them but it just isnt as cool as it was before.
