Seriously? Development time spent on the least used part of the game that many complain about being too hard at the higher levels and you geniuses waste time and resources to make Hard Modes?!

Wow guys, you are so freaking clueless.
Exactly this.

The level 50 space missions can be done while eating cereal and half asleep. I have done it and I do them maybe three times a week; usually twice. Use your "special weapons" like EMP and power converter module and you will be fine. If you still have trouble then look up a video or two on youtube. That helped me with Operation New Eclipse.

[Sarcasm] Something is too hard for maybe half of the players so let's nerf it. Because difficulty = no fun! [/sarcasm]

You have to install that device that will switch all power to weapons or to shields, you buy it with your space fleet commendations, once you have that you just the 1 key and it will like double your fire power for your weapons, if you activated the shields part of it it regens them pretty fast....

I was always getting killed to until I started using that, made all the difference in the world....

As for the OP question: Ya i did space mission each day, but once I hit 50 and got the title for doing the last space mission I kind of stop doing them... If they put in some new ones and add more stuff we can buy with fleet comm's then I would keep doing them...

I do them when I need the last 20k+ of xp for that next level on my two characters that I am still leveling when I get tired of getting stun-locked in PvP.

Rarely anymore. I'll do some if I'm waiting on a crafting result and am on the ship, otherwise nope.

Other people like the space missions so that's good to know, and I hope they're having a blast.

Fleet comms = Grade 8 mats = (61) mods, armoring, enhs, etc. = BH comms.

Think of it as parallel progression paths.

We're talking a minigame here, in a game that's this open to a wide enough range of player skill. When you're talking about wanting special hardware for a minigame, you're taking things too far. I know as many people that don't do space combat because it's too hard as those that don't do it because it has no challenge. Changing space combat to a free flight 3D space sim is just going to mean that there are that many more people in the first category.

I'm all for harder bonus missions. As is, I tend to set goals for myself that go above and beyond what the mission and it's real bonus missions require. There's one bonus mission that I don't consider easy (10 frigate shield generators on a map where there are only 10 frigate shield generators, and you only get one pass on 4 of those shield generators). On the other hand, doing the Drexel sweep and ending with the shuttle at over 80% health does feel like a bit of an achievement in a level appropriate ship, at least for me.

special hardware? a simple joystick or gamepad or a keyboard and mouse is all you need for 3d free flight. Just so you know, the only thing that kept SWG going after SOE screwed the pooch on the ground game there was JTL. If JTL never existed SWG would have died the exact day they changed the game.

I don't know. Most people I know don't bother with them. Instead we crank up Battlefront 2. But at least one of my friends love the missions and runs them every day. We make fun of him a bit for it. He can't handle Battlefront.

At any rate, IMO the feature has little to no widespread appeal. Adding more missions is a bit obtuse from my perspective.
