I wrote: “a proper team can take him down in 30 sec”. The team was not proper nor took it 30 seconds. Please only read what I have written or I have to call you a troll. Those “high end T2 frigs” didn’t manage to bring a singe support module and where sporting stabilised railguns. As soon as the add spawned they fucked off to be the least helpful possible.
A target painter is a T1 module and the valkyrie command mod is T2. Sadly most players are unable to hold down shift long enough to see what their ship is giving a bonus to.
What you fail to understand is that any nerf of the NPCs is a massive boost to good players. So good that they race ahead in a fashion that is game breaking. At some point a kind soul writes a guide and anybody and his mom is able to make 1M+/h with T2 scenarios.
Instead of whining here on the forum and putting yourself in a unfavourable light, you would do much better in finding yourself a corp with players capable of reading item descriptions.
Oh dang, I misread your statement! My bad. I was not intending to troll. Thanks for re-iterating that for me.
You made a good point in that nerfing the boss would make it too easy for higher skilled players to farm at a rate that could potentially cause an imbalance. It helps to understand your point when you add reason behind it. (Especially for newbies like myself) Perhaps down the line there will be harder scenarios for higher skilled players. It’s kinda what I was getting at when I stated, “I think the major issue here is a variety in difficulty depending on the participants current abilities.”
And forgive me for coming off as whining, but I found this mission to be extremely difficult in the beginning. So much so that it seemed disproportionate to the skill level I had when I started. As mentioned I’ve asked around, read up on, and done my best to fit my ship accordingly and fly smart. I did go on to mention that once I was in a better ship with better capabilities it became easier. Even then I often find myself getting matched up with anything from T1-T4, so the outcome varies.
Take it how you may, but the people here ‘whining’ are a sign that there is room for improvement. Also, to clarify, I don’t think it should be easy and welcome a challenge. Perhaps something more comprehensive in the form of an easily visible guide, or better matchmaking, or a series of different scenarios in accordance to tiers would help.
Again, my bad for misreading your statement. You obviously have a firm grasp on aspects of the game I have yet to learn and your advice to find a decent/competent corp is well received. I know that’s a great way to speed up the learning curve in most mmo’s. I’ve looked around for a good corp and am open to any suggestions.
