Stop saying Fondor Escort is so hard

Its not. Its the easiest mission in the game if you shoot the cruisers.

Besides, if you think that was hard, just wait until you get Hydian Way Blockade. That mission is a nightmare without a full grade 4 ship.

Took me about eight tries the first time in a ship with no upgrades. (I haven't failed it since, even on alts - it's easy once you know what to shoot first.) I never again encountered a space mission that took more than two tries to succeed.

It's good practice for the later escort missions, but the learning curve might be a bit steep for an intro mission.

I won't lie. It took me about 6 tries before I figured out the key. On those 6 tries, the escort ship always blew up with the LAST fighters that spawned.

The key: Turrets > Fighters. Take them out, ESPECIALLY at the very beginning! It's easy pickings.

Same principle for the mission Ma Takei or something along those lines. If you concentrate on the fighters, you'll have a hard time getting the bonus. You have so many cruisers that pop up. Take out those turrets! That count towards the 75(?).

Who the heck was saying it was hard. It's the easiest thing to do in the whole game. Rolling a new toon was harder than fondor escort.

Wait, people struggled with the first space mission? I went in with zero upgrades and felt it was one of the easiest things I'd ever done with gaming. If you struggled with something this easy, I really don't know what to say. That's bizarre.

The only hard missions are the later game ones. I'm having trouble with the Minefield with all level 5 equipment...

None of the Space missions are hard period. Unless you're into doing Impossible Sector with level 1 ship upgrades.

If you're having difficulties, chain-run a couple of the lower/easier ones, upgrade your gear then try again.
