Why have I just lost the Ultimate Frontier scenario 5 times in a row? Explain yourselves! I'm not doing poorly either, I'm solidly in first place on the XP board on all 5. It's a scenario... I'm losing my mind! This one is harder than the rest probably, but it's still a scenario. There's a repair facility and everything! I just want to finish the mission and get back to PVP! Get it together people lol, I'm not good enough to justify 5 games top XP.

That healthy ships like to camp, ensuring there's a crowd and that they don't have firing angles on anything that matters.

Its no fun, its more like a job. The rampant bot cheating and the requirement for a high level of teamwork, performance, and understanding, makes it feel like work rather than play. So, many good players have stopped or curtailed their play of that scenario. 

Only Killer Whale retains any semblance of the fun Zen space ops used to be.

It's very hard, sometimes almost impossible now. The best ship I have found for it is the Scharnhorst. IIRC they're going to fix it in a couple updates.

I can't prove it but WG set all operations to hardmode.

The Scenarios have always been labeled 'Hard difficulty' - this is from Dynamo last year.

However, if you think they've buffed the ever loving **** out of Scenarios, you're not wrong...

From the "Update 0.7.5" thread.

"Bots in the "Ultimate Frontier" scenario had their stats corrected so that its difficulty level is more suitable for most players."

Pretty sure all the AI captains have 19pt captains (Atlanta chunking my BB 5k at a time with HE at 13km...) and they will bow tank towards the biggest threat while reversing. I swear, they play better then most of the teams in randoms... took my clan 3 attempts to 5 star it.

You need teamwork and it's a PUG. Scharnhorst as a cruiser-killer will help, and if there's any destroyers, you will not do well. I used Fiji the last time out, very good against destroyers and her smoke is always welcome at the right time.

Maybe now I can find that 5 star win.

I don't play any of the Ops anymore. Ever since WG "improved" them, they're no longer fun.

keeping the forts alive is the only problem I have been having, seems the bots top target is the forts, had had countless 4 star games where we could not keep the forts alive, I do like that its hard, and feel good when we get a 5 star, but the bots cheat so bad, I only wish I had their torpedo detection skills, the second you fire off some fish they are moving to avoid them and their fire chance put RN BB's to shame.

Agree 100%. I'm just blown away...by how fast teams get blown away. You just can't win with a 3-4 ship deficit a few minutes from the start but you CAN in Randoms and that just shouldn't be... I won't touch OPs with a 10 foot pole. Thanks WG you ruined my happy place for when all your other game modes have me wanting to shoot holes in my monitor....

Out of curiosity,  has anyone spawned as the lone BB this week?

 

I've encountered this once, during the last time around which was April?  1BB, 4CL, 2DD  With how things are with the difficulty,  I don't think that should be allowed.  There are a lot of balance problems with this scenario of course,  but I wanted to point this out as well to be looked at.

Made 5 or 6 tries this weekend in Fiji, never even got 1 star. There are just to many attacking ships you really can not defend every area at once.
