    Space is easy and hitting spacebar will do the trick.

    Ground you need a team that knows what they are doing.

    Since this may see a return of the ground borg queues, here's a sound piece of advice, just in case:

    GET A TR-116B RIFLE IF YOU DON'T ALREADY HAVE ONE.


    Cure ground is probably the worst of the 3 - that involved setting up a runner to trigger emitters while one person was stationed on each emitter to defend it. While High Density beam rifles seemingly fell out of fashion several years ago, back in the day it was basically mandatory to carry one on this map to keep the drones away from your position as you simply couldn't just wreck the place in a curb stomp battle.

    Edit: I actually don't mind the ground stuff myself, I quite enjoy the Voth Battlezone, the afk campers aside (why some people don't realise it would be much faster if they just helped instead of waiting for the boss to spawn I don't understand) though I'm not too keen on the Bug hunt map.

    I can see the ground queues going horribly wrong and scaring people off a lot of content when poor pug teams fail missions.

    I mean the Borg ones alone need some degree of knowing what to do rather than just mindless shooting and running, so those will not work well as random picks.

    Also i wonder exactly how popular random stuff will be if people only like space or ground, but not the other. Will that aspect put people off?

    Spacebar is life. It's also kiddie stuff.

    I actually have 3 keybinds (NUM1, NUM2, NUM3) rolling through the tray, so I steer with the left and push numpad buttons with the right. One for firing stuff, one for effects, and one for healing. Specials go on numpad 4-9 & 0.

    Like I said, I am all about the space TFOs. So it might be nice to see how awful some of these ground TFOs actually are.

    But...but I love the temporal and miracle worker. ((Yes yes I know...I'm a defense minded player playing a game that revolves around damage lol...can't help it, it's in my nature))
    You're weird. I like that in an ally.
