The periods of inactivity in Cet's missions are there for a reason. We're Drunks we like to drink during missions. I believe Odd had the same point of view.
That's what the respawn screen is for. Take a death, take a swig
Actually that sounds like a good drinking game...
Pods not all launching is the players fault. It's part of the difficulty of the missions.
No, it isn't. It doesn't make the missions one tiny bit harder to play (what's the difficulty in killing a ship slower
? It's killing them fast that's hard), it just makes them far more annoying as you can do everything right, fly flawlessly and follow the objectives to the letter, yet still lose.
Every one of Cet's missions is beatable. If you aren't winning you aren't doing something right.
We are winning. Both of us have a full medal case won from unmodified missions. But we also recognize that *some* of the things that gave us problems aren't intended. One should not be punished for flying well, for being efficient, for completing objectives.
Protecting the ships in Robin Hood is bordering on cheating. Someone needs to keep an eye on the ai and order them to ignore or send the ai home. Its like saying that disabling the ships too fast is a bug because they are too close to the spawn points.
Huh? The mission is neither harder nor easier for protecting them, except if you try it with such a low number of players that you'd have to rely on the AI to do much of the work. It's just less annoying, less prone to losing for no reason at all despite doing everything right.
All of those things I just mentioned were meant to make the missions harder for expert players. It was also meant to make getting the medals take more then one try and for people playing the missions for the first time to have to figure it out not just do this and you get a medal.
But they don't make the missions any harder for expert players. Not one bit. And people who are trying to get the medals will still need several tries to do so if they're not helped out by someone who knows exactly what needs to be done. They just won't lose the medal the time they finally get everything right because of some stupid, silly thing that really should have been fixed before the mission was ever validated.
