Pirate Attack is a Joke

Post by YetiSwarm on Tue May 20, 2014 8:04 pm

I'm "playing" this mission right now while tabbed out. Even on extreme you can literally afk and win every time. Please make this about 10 times harder so you need to actually participate.

Yeah, maybe you can sit there and be AFK, but what about a level 1 player? the missions are meant for beginner people. not battle hardened players that are all geared up.  I'm a level 7 raynor, and when i tried it, I died on extreme.

Daleman wrote:The next mode to be added is missions. This will consist of various challenges, mini bosses and survival.

The first mission is "Zombie Outbreak". This will be the first time the Colosseum will be displayed publically. The mission will start off with your heroes being attacked periodically by zombies. The zombies will progressively spawn faster and stronger units occasionally will spawn too. Players will fight their way to the final mini boss. An infested bunker monster will enter the arena through the gate and begin hunting nearby players. Once this unit has been killed the mission will end in a victory.

The second mission is "Pirates Invasion". The Hyperion will be under attack from small pirate ships, mag mines, satellite laser, marines and a capital pirate ship. The goal is to survive these attacks for 4 minutes.

Difficulty will be available to change as is it normally is with bosses. More missions will be added soon.

I don't see anything about these being meant for beginners. Please don't make up stuff. Nor does it make sense that new content being added to the game is so easy it's impossible for an experienced players to lose. I'm fine with it being easy on normal (although probably not this easy), but it should still add at least something for people who have played more than once on harder difficulties.

Please don't make up stuff? I have the evidence right here that it's for beginners.

That's showing a currently disabled dropdown with the option beginner selected. Swing and a miss.

and yet it shows that pirate invasion is on the same thing is on it.  I even have word from dale himself that the missions are to help with the beginners. 

Also, have you looked under the disabled dropdown menu? The text there say it's meant for beginners.

Clearly, arguing with you is pointless. Best of luck on the short bus.

How is it pointless? if you look under the greyed out dropdown box, you'll see the words clearly. In fact, i modified the previous image to make the text show out more.

Also another thing, I think the missions can be accessed by anyone.  Don't quote me on this until I'm sure.

Missions can be accessed by everyone. Due to other functionality in the works, we weren't able to implement difficulties for the missions (they're the same on all difficulties at the moment) even though we've had the difficulties being scaled for a while, on our unpublished current version. Soon (definitely tomorrow) we'll upload the update including scaled difficulties on the missions. The higher difficulties should provide more than a challenge to players looking for it.

The missions; Pirate Invasion and Zombie Outbreak are concept missions. These are not very hard atm and have not been scaled for difficulty. In the next patch(later today) they will be harder on higher difficulties. For example the zombies will now run faster and deal more damage.

These are beginner missions and meant are for new time players. These will not be required for players to advance in the tiers since they are easy.

And don't worry about the difficulty of later missions, they will be more challenging
