Read some of the guides that have been posted in older LI threads. Some are very detailed and provide viable strats for melee heavy groups. Contrary to all the BSing and QQing ranged DPS is not required if your group is halfway decent with a solid strat.

What kills it for me is when you get a random group. The standard ranged strat is much easier for random people to grasp than the more complicated melee strats. I still do LI with melee, I just put together pre-mades for it.

Get better melee and be prepared to kite.

Honestly just keep LI on the LFG queue, I only ever go with a full guild group and i do like free BH comms for 35 mins or effort.

I have to agree with the gear check. I've queued with it far too often with fresh 50's still in 33-49 greens who think they will beat it or the more experienced players will pull them through for free loot.

Why do they need to take it off the Group Finder when it is in its own specific tier?

Because they lack gear checks, and too many people who lack gear will try and get in it for the better loot without having appropriate gear for it because they think people who are geared will just pull them through.

By removing it from the group finder, you're penalizing people that use it with premades.

Feel free to not use it for pugs, that is your prerogative.

And Lost Island is a SKILL check, not a GEAR check, anyway. Give 4 unskilled players a complete set of black hole/campaign gear and they will still wipe on LR-5.

After donig Lost Island a few things I have come to the comclusion that the robot fight makes no sense at all. Tweek the robot fight, and everything else is fine with the FP.

Why is a guardain robot... able to control seemingly at will, the flow of Lava? (nothig happens until you start the fight.

Why is a guardian robot about to spawn these monstrous adds at will, that do his commond? Fine the robot breaks the tanks... but thier horrible mutant abominations. Why do they instantly help the robot??? Wouldn't crazyed mutatons attack anything that moves *shrug*.

Speaking of crazy mutations.... Where the hell did that rifle come from? Really? He had a sniper rifle with him in a kolto tank??

Considering the diff of this robot vs everything else, (some will hate me for this) the fight needs to be... toned down a slight bit. I'm not 100% sure what would be best to tweek or remove. But the fight is like juggling chainsaws, even with people that know what to do, its to dependent on luck most of the time.

Thiers definitely something wrong with a FP where the hardest boss is at the beginning of the FP , and its not the Final boss.

i don't know how many tiems i've had to leave cause under-geared or under-skilled or entirely new people are queing for it....
Then don't queue for it, and make teams for it the old-fashioned away. Nothing more to it..
