So the difficult level of this event has been stealth buffed ya? Hemocyte even has Eidolon ground waves attack! lol

I got killed while in void mode with it's gas proc. I got stun locked because of this and forced into a revive screen. I encountered the age old ability lockout bug that can only be fixed by killing yourself too. Considering how long it's taking to kill a level 84 Hemocyte for the rewards involved - this is definitely a case of the not worth doing. Pass until it's actually intuitive, works and possibly worth the rewards for time spent.

The Ignis Wraith has been a hotly debated topic, and many clans are wondering when this extremely exclusive event reward (and solar rail tech) will become available again.

The difference between a trophy and ignis wraith is that the gun has real value (in economic parlance) and a trophy has only sentimental value. Other people also getting trophies doesn't devalue the sense of triumph you felt upon earning yours, but reissuing ignis wraith research does devalue what other people posses.

Another key difference as I see it, is that ignis wraith is still 100% obtainable. I have them listed at 5 plat, but often give them away as a bonus during trades. The top 10% of each clan type got the research, there is no shortage of blueprints out there.

As for the Ignis Wraith, the only value i see in it is the accessibility of it in the clan dojo, and for an increase in clan affinity.

I view the trophies as a way to show off the clan that you've built, and how strong a clan can be. Whats the point of letting players work for that right, when it means nothing later?

Since the Hemocyte Cystolith was used to craft trophies for this Operation, unlike past events where a score was used to award a trophy, we didn't want the extra earned Hemocyte Cystolith to now be useless. Also, we have stated quite a few times this year in streams and elsewhere that we are in the process of testing out the waters for Clan systems/Operations so we are trying something new here. As always, feedback on the issue is appreciated!

 

There was mountains of feedback on this event when it was last around and it is just the exact same now (excluding a minor difficulty buff) as it was back then.

 

You guys could at least have given this a year to sit instead of 6 months, it was even the most recent event which only makes it worse. Reusuing Plague Star so soon only reeks of laziness, it's the same dull bounties, the same dull mini-reskinned Lephantis, and the same mediocre rewards.

 

Is this going to be the new trend? Toss some "event" that uses the bounty system, then just keep doing that every few months? Bad enough that Ghouls are tied to those missions, but seems like everything else now has to be too.

Players have expressed concern over the Plague Star Trophies returning as per 

 

I can relate to that, and reading that the trophies are back it kind of dissapoints me, and also proves that they no longer care much about clan competition or "worldwide" clan classification tables which was something that I really enjoyed (even though I play mostly alone *cough* SOLO *cough* clan *dies coughing*)

yep without the relative buff in reward too...for 3k reward it's far too difficult and it is no way 'newbie' friendly.

obviously we got too many forma last time it was active so they buff it and give it eidolon attacks.

It's a returning event with a reworked boss fight on steroid, making the thing a lot more harder. While reward are perfect (free forma), they made the boss a total bullet sponge with deadly attack without any mention in patchnote.

Also, as a friendly upfront update, your Operational Supply Standing from the last occurrence of Operation: Plague Star is still all intact.  When Operation: Plague Star ended last, we had included the following in our FAQ:

So intact like the proposed change in IPS 2.5 for slash? I really doubt it, at least mention the buff of the thing instead of hiding like nothing pls.

Edit: Ik this is operationnal supply, but  Ithink people the link I'm trying to make there

Hello, quick request, can you guys make the unidentified Ayatan in front of Old Suumbaat an operation reward? Not precisely the best prize but hey, it's something.

A couple things that i think need tweaking is the length of the defense portion (as you did to the normal plains defense missions)....and for the love ot tenshin can you PLEASE do SOMETHING about the bloody 500m - 1km escort :| make the drone keep up with US not the other way around :| personally, i think it should just be ditched entirely and have US delivery the toxin ourselves...FAR faster.

Would like to bring something up regarding the Hemocyte.

It's been buffed to levels that are definitely insane. 84 on the LAST hemocyte? Like, WHAT man.
Not only that, the Hemocyte is now Eidolon-difficulty hard.

Is this intentional? Or was it an oversight? Because as it is now, every non-PUG that I've joined are all agreeing that someone in the devteam screwed up by ramping the difficulty of the Hemocyte. And every PUG I go into discovers the horror of spawning FOUR of these baby Lephantises the hard way.

Also, (you trying to limit the farm rate DE? i want my plague zaws and loot without having to worry about stuff IRL, and with how slow it takes to farm standing now this is near impossible).

Astonishing how much you managed to mess up this event. Lags like crazy (despite solid/constant ping/fps), is stupidly long for very low rewards, no point in killing the hemocytes anymore due to the massive, uncalled for nerfs to what can damage them and massive buffs to their levels (and therefore health, armour etc.). You literally took everything about the event and made it worse. Why?

Agree on this. Hemocyte 2.0? more like Infested "Eidolon".

I'm serious. Normally even the most hardcore of my guns, the Lanka, would butcher Lephantis' heads in a few shots even at Sortie-tier. This time around, the Hemo seems to be absorbing the brunt of my shots without a care, and proceeding to slice an entire chunk out of my Rhino's super armor within seconds.

Oh, and that's not the worst part. The cake still has to go to the Infested Hemocyte head. It now shreds through a full party of Bless Trins (all together blessed) within seconds with a properly-aimed spray of acidic crap. Four. Bless. Full STR. Trins. Gone in a few seconds. If that's not overkill, I don't know what is.

I have a decent account on pc, but I mainly play on xbox, any information on when this will come back to consoles? Also what's with the difficulty now? I was barely able to defeat the hemocyte this time around.

 I learned that you are taking away the ability to buy more then 1 syandana but how are you going to refund those who have already done so also NOICE.

Also maybe lower the difficulty on the event lower level players cant even participate or have 1 for lower level players and 1 for higher level players.
