What a WASTE of time new space missions

Oh please, don't pretend feedback on the PTS actually makes any difference. It never has. Proof: the commando PvP gear *BUG* was reported on the PTS over 2 weeks ago, and was still pushed to live as is.

That said, I agree with you they are supposed to be challenging. I tried two different missions last night, and failed repeatedly at both. I look forward to failing them many many more times before I get them down, so I would vote leave them as is for now.

Just because a Bug is known about doesn't mean that the cause of said bug has been discovered. When dealing with programs and staffs as massive as BW uses, especially when you're maintaining and adding to code that you didn't actually write yourself, debugging is a highly convoluted and perturbing process.

Just because a bug was reported on the PTS 2 weeks ago doesn't mean that no work has been done to fix it or that it was ignored. If the developers refused to release content until every single bug was fixed, they would never keep up with the 6-8 week major release schedule (unless they spent a *lot* more money to get a massive staff of programmers and debuggers).

There's a saying amidst programmers that bears repeating. Quick, cheap, and bug free: pick 2.

Tried one yesterday. Got obliterated half through the mission without any of targets destroyed (just how much rockets do they need?!) Shield useless, too much damage. Also, how the hell am I supposed to fly, shoot, dodge and do not crash into anything IN THE SAME TIME?
Tried another, got obliterated even faster. Decided to leave the missions for those who are good at it. Don't know what the folks on test servers were thinking, probably they all some uber-hardcore specialists. For casual players its absolutely no fun and annoying.

I've enjoyed the new missions quite a bit so far. I needed about 2/3 of the grade 7 upgrades to start completing a few of them. But it just takes practice: learning when to switch to full shields, when the asteroid you plowed into last time is coming up, etc.

I think it's the beauty of SWTOR. There's lots of different things to do and lots of upgrade paths you can take.

I have to lean with the OP on this one. As limiting as the space rails are, I do enjoy it for quick credits and mind numbing fun. And, Im good at it! I can make it through AB without taking a point of damage.. Soo, I was excited with the new release. After decking out the ship with all Level 7 space gear (a nice bit of money making genius on their part) I jumped in. After getting my ***** waxed on every single new mission, I was a bit frustrated.
Man, these things are a bit on the "are you serious" side.
If you play defensively enough to stay alive, you will not meet your objective. Offensively enough to meet the objectives and your space particles and fast....

Ill add I too think the boast in difficulty is a bit high for the new space missions. I do like that they are harder, but just a wee bit to painful.

I'm absolutely shocked that people are saying these missions are hard. I have had zero trouble with any of the missions with the exception of cha raaba which took me a few tries to nail down, but now that I have my timing down its a 1 shot everytime. I'm upset that I mastered these new missions in under an hour. They are not difficult and they are just as boring as the old missions. An entire waste of time and resources by bioware. Stop wasting time bioware and just complete the SSSP already.

That's nothing, it only took me 9 minutes to beat the new heroic space missions, a month before they reached the PTS.

I have never made a video nor do I know how to or I would. Would you like a SS of my codex entries displaying completion of all the bonus missions and space achievements?
