What's the deal with Section X dailies?

They seem disproportionately difficult. Not to mention absolutely crowded with mobs everywhere you turn. All with insane respawn rates. I've only been 50 for a couple weeks so my gear isn't the best, but I can do most hard modes and all the Black Hole dailies without any trouble.

But Section X just seems unusually hard. Is this because BW figured that by now everyone would have really good gear? And the reason for the high respawn rates and crowding mobs because they figured the zone would be packed with players fighting over mobs?

Either way I don't find them all that fun. They seem like a difficult chore.

I like the increased difficulty. The dailies there drop 3 comms at a time, or thereabouts, and a higher return should require a higher combination of skill and gearing.

Thry are fine. They are a little more challenging but that's okay. If you aren't geared enough for them, there is 3 other daily zones you can work on till your gear builds up enough to tackle the zone.

And the respawn rate is just fine as well. With people in and out of the zone, there is nothing worse than slow respawns. To slow and people complain they are sitting around and waiting on spawns, to fast and we get threads like this....

Only problem with the section X dailies is the one where you need the 3 target thingies, few mobs, random drops, and plenty of people killing them, you can easily en up spending 30 minutes to an hour in there if you're unlucky (or more, as happened to me).

The increased difficulty is just fine as it gives more comms as a reward (might want to up the credit reward though).

Not enough of essential spawns, cramped among too many other junk spawns, with WAY TOO SLOW respawn rate and way too low mission loot drop rate.

Final analysis: Crap design, will not be going back, move along.

I am glad that everyone else feel it's necessary to do these now though, a lot less people spawn camping and kill stealing in the other daily areas now

When they fix the server lag I think this is amazing!

Is it hard? Yes! Thats the fun part! I can solo everything in my Campaign geared Sent but I know I have to actually put effort into it unlike Black Hole which has become routine as hell.

Dont complain its too hard, you wont get better at playing if they dont push you

After about 3 times there, i had enough of the area, now i will only do it for weekly. Way to many mobs (which i also see other places, but this place is even worse), so its a pain trying to go from Q to Q. I hate it, there and when im leveling an alt, that i constantly get blasted of my speeder, just trying to do my *********** Q's.
And the drop rate on those Air strike codes is a joke, there is like 7 mobs in there, and they seem to have a drop rate of 10%?... I hope they fire the retard the retard that made the decissions for that area, because if that is the **** you will keep adding, i dont see the game last.
*sigh*
