Swimming in The (cold) Pool

Post  Aratex on Tue Jun 04, 2013 7:38 pm

I'm just going to get it out there. I propose a harder difficulty level.

Team Forum Spammers have been swimming around in The Pool for awhile now, however the water has gone cold.

Basically, we're suffering from wanderlust and must be presented with a challenge.

it just needs a suitable name... Suspect

I agree. Now that we've optimized our ships, we no longer die NEARLY as often... we just tank, and/or deal massive DPS.

To give you an idea: Falcon Dive plus Kinetic Harvester on G5F Wyveros = 1100 AOE damage on disabled difficulty. Yup.

A new difficulty has been added. The Union, which is ~50% harder than The Pool, will be available next patch.

Looking forward to it. Don't make it mandatory (same color as difficulty disabled) during campaign though because more often than not all the preset elements force you into situations you'd rather use a different hull in.
Maybe give it a white highlight in Pilot Data instead of a bright yellow one, and keep Difficulty disabled bright yellow?

Well it won't be mandatory since no one is putting a gun to your head. Smile

All achievements that used to require highest difficulty now only require The Pool.

I thought achievements requiring highest difficulty required Arch Sage. Huh.

Anyway, any lore on "The Union"?

It's based on another concept from the books, can't really say more than that without a huge spoiler. Smile

Hehe, indeed. You might be waiting for a while. "The Union" is a concept that won't be revealed until the third book. Shocked

Oh no! I only ordered one!

Guess I'll have to meet up with Aratex and Syther, and put our books together. Then we all have three, and can take turns reading the third one! Cool

That's funny there is an achievement for completing all the missions on the union.
The litter glitter galaxy missions are damned hard due to your ships being so fragile.

As a side note what kind of a madman can get the yeehaw achievement on the pool? I'll sooner kill stygil on the union with a R1 istreya then achieve that achievement.

I did it!

Post  Murky42 on Sat Aug 24, 2013 6:11 pm

I had my sensitivity way too high to beat this mission, I was constantly bashing in to everything.

Once I lowered my sensitivity I could beat it in a couple tries.

Suppose you don't need to be a wizard to do this after all.
