I used to switch to Hard to get this mission. But I'd like once in my life to finish it on Insane !
I managed to get a good previous mission ; 9/11 of my mates alive, I got around 60% hull integrity (even though I got hit quite hard thanks to these Flails near the end ; never put a Flail in a AI's hand, most deadlier weapon ever against players). Yet I just can't beat this mission on insane no matter how hard I try.
The problem is, no matter the strategy adopted, my mates die at the third/fourth wave of enemies. Heh, I guess you can't expect it to last forever when matched against 3 dragons + 3 or 4 manticore at each wave.
I manage to take out the Lucifer's weapon subsystem most of the time, but then my bombers die because there's no more mate to protect them. And if I order my mates to protect the bombers, well first turrets take down the bombs, and second my mates die as well.
I also tried to be a real troll, sitting in the Fighterbay. But the missiles fired by the missile launcher go through the Lucifer's hull to hit me
I might try tomorrow to stay with the bombers, and acting like one with my teammates (C-3-7 then C-3-9 upon approaching the shivans). Once the bombers get close to the lucifer, I might try to take out some turrets so these bombs can land, but there may be too many of them to take down. I have no idea how effective my mates can be at taking out turrets, I will have to test that too.
I may also try the Quantum Delta's way : completely ignoring the weapon subsystem, and focus on reactor 5, commanding my mates to disarm the Lucifer when there's no enemy around. Though, in his video
, his allies seem to stand much longer than mine.
I might also try this Fury AI Quantum Delta seems to be using. If it improves the AI, I'm up for it ! But maybe this would make the mission easier, and I'm so close to the end of this full insane campaign that it would be being a coward to stop in the middle and try with a new AI
Who managed to beat the full FSport campaign on Insane so far ?
