What a WASTE of time new space missions

To all the people who are having trouble with just getting through the missions alive, learn the routes first; the missions aren't hard for the enemies so much as the obstacles.
Your best bet in that case is just to sweep randomly all over frigate trying to get missile lock. There is that one part in front of frigates that is more durable than others, and it'll often get covered in smoke once ship turns away from you.

While the other missions are fine and fair for the new space missions, whoever came up with Cha Raaba needs a good swift kick. Seriously, why am I sitting here for a minute flying through rocks doing NOTHING! The mission is 3:49, I typically kill the first to fighters by 3:19, and then sit there twiddling my thumbs while flying through rocks for about a minute waiting (2:23) to be able to start shooting at things again and then it gets completely and utterly nuts (where I have to use my Jam and then my EMP back to back). Really, Cha Raaba needs a trip back to the drawing board as it's really a dumb design. (I never sit for more than 15 seconds in any of the other heroic space missions, why am I sitting for almost a minute here in this mission?)

Yes, you can complete the space new space missions over and over without the daily quest, it yields 1793 creds for completing the mission, and for the republic side space mission Regnant Station Assualt, there are 3 bonus missions, Destroy 1 Sith Ship, Destroy 4 frigates, both netting 5381 creds everytime and there's destroy 40 imperial fighters which I can't remember the creds off the top of my head, but i think it's in the 3k-4k creds range. And completing these bonus missions also unlocks a codex.

Just a little curious, but has anyone else ever been fired on by a frigate that you have completely obliterated? Or seen a ship jump to hyperspace or move for that matter after you destroyed it's engines?

Its really something for bioware to put new missions for space but man making the missions so hard that you need the class 7 gear just to have a small glimmer of a chance to complete it.
You cant even do the mission with the top gear you have for your ship the advance class 5 parts that were top of the line before the update!
Well i used to be really happy with the space mission and after these mission i will be hanging up my pilot helmet for now cause either the missions are too high lvl for my ship or they are some how bugged i dont know but i will not pay real money for the space parts from the cartel just to be able to have a chance to play the game.

These mission are supposed to be a challenge, not something you get on your first try. When there is a new operation that you can`t down what do you do? Learn a better strategy and spend more time equipping or rant to the devs that you wiped?

Those missions DO NOT require grade 7 to be completed, it has been said many times and i made sure checking personally. I completed 4 missions in around 30 tries with grade 6 (baros, the shuttle defense, ardis and the one where you destroy the 8 satellites). My next targets are new kovor and Disruption (Chaa braa for imps) and i`m fairly sure that i`ll get those down with grade 6 equip, or at the most with grade 7 missiles.

So now you have it, it`s definitely possible to down this operation boss. Do you want to try downing it or just whine to the devs so that they nerf it? (And then complain that there is no endgame).

Considering that the steep cost of Grade 7 gear made it impossible to test how difficult it was on PTS, this isn't really a viable excuse.

The difficulty/time investment vs Reward is way off.

only done Duma Strike so far on empire side, but if you time your 15 sec immunity well it's pretty easy'ish.

I started out with emp right away to damage the 3 frigates that surround u, then I hit the immunity when u come around the corner with the bombers and the corsair ship, should have emp back up towards the end of it and can use on the big command ship for a little extra damage on the bridge which was the hardest part to blow up.

took me 2 tries


looking forward to trying out the other ones.
