So I came across this old campaign from like 2009 done by Droid803, and apparently it involves some Terrans working for the Shivans after Capella, and that sounded awesome, so I downloaded it. (Somebody in the original release said that this (i.e. Shivans communicating with the Terrans and having civil wars between different factions) wasn't really their idea of Shivans, which is amusing to me because this is almost exactly my idea of Shivans, and I've never seen it anywhere else. So that's cool.)
First mission was pretty straightforward. Surrender Belisarius but with Shivans everywhere. Also, Shivan heretics? Man, this is giving me flashbacks to the Geth. Although granted, this came out like a year earlier than ME2, so.
Mission two and aaaaagh dive dive dive hit your burners pilot already? Except with beamz instead of a Sath? And now okay WHAT THE **** THERE ARE TEN MILLION SCORPIONS TRYING TO KILL ME WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO HERE aaand the Vassago's dead. So much for that attempt.
Okay, so, the recommendations say to destroy the cruisers before engaging the fighters. WELL I'M NOT TRYING TO ENGAGE THE FIGHTERS, BUT THEY SEEM AWFULLY ****ING BENT ON ENGAGING ME.
Anyway. This campaign looks completely awesome so far, but I have no idea how to beat this mission or if it's supposed to be this hard. Ideas, people who have played this before?
EDIT: Okay, I just put it on Very Easy, and got through well enough. Seriously, though, this is amazeballs. I don't know if it's just my alien fixation or what, but playing as (almost) the Shivans is great. Droid, if you ever want to do a remake of this and you want a writer, sign me the **** up.
