Mirror Invasion Event. yay. Once again, we have to deal with Obisek. Without us propping him up at every turn, this banana republic general would only lead the Remans down to defeat against Tal Shiar 1st day recruits. Who are only armed with pointy sticks.
But I digress. Despite what I've posted so far, I do this Event because it allows me to replenish my Reputation Mark supply across all my chars. It isn't as efficient as the Breach but it is better than nothing. I miss the old Mirror Invasion. Where one had to defend a Starbase from four or five Terran Fleets. Now that
, that was a fight worthy of a warrior!
The new "improved" Mirror Invasion has some things people new to the game may not know. Or that some of us older players have forgotten. No matter. Just trying to help. So help an irascible old man out and spread the word I've posted below. A Copy/Paste from the STO Wiki.
Here it comes:
The group should work in teams of at least two. The first player in each team draws aggro; the second player interacts with rifts and power substations. Interaction is interrupted by taking damage; the interacter is well-served by having a cloaking device or other means to distract the enemy. Destroying enemy ships is unnecessary
; once a rift is closed or a power substation is activated, the team should immediately move on to the next target. Spending time destroying all enemy ships merely allows other rifts a chance to form and "grow," and more enemy ships to spawn, making completing the objectives that much more difficult.
Closing rifts is the first priority.
Players earn more Reputation Marks from closing Rifts than they'll ever earn from powering up Vauthil Station. Which, when it is powered up, destroys exactly ZERO Terran ships anyways. All it does is push them back. Without doing any damage to them. Time spent transferring power to Obisek's band of blind gunners is time which could be spent MUCH MORE profitably closing Rifts. Close more Rifts, get more Marks. Usually a sufficient amount to amply offset the paltry Bonus earned by giving power and time to a bunch of NPCs who contribute nothing to the fight.
One more time. Because it is worth repeating.
Closing Rifts is the first priority
Please pass this on to as many as possible. Because the smarter they are about playing STO, the more fun they'll have.
Thank you for your time and attention. Much appreciated.
