Rather miscellaneous questions
 
Some things I still haven't figured out having hit Captain 34...

- How do I create a team? For example, during Borg events, keeping track of allies is much easier if we were in a team...
- How do I obtain more Lobi Crystals?
- Where exactly can fleet credits be used?

Thanks very much!

Click on someone's ship then right-click their name and choose "Invite to team". You can also right-click their name in the chat and do the same.

Some people (like me) don't like random team invites though. Make sure they know why you're trying to team with them before inviting. ;)

You can select and right click someone either onscreen or through the chat box and select "Invite to Team" However, it is polite to try to ask the person first before attempting to team them.

- How do I obtain more Lobi Crystals?
Lobi crystals are special currency won through the lockbox reward system. You pick the lockboxes for free as loot, and you buy keys from the zen store for $1 each. Each lockbox has a random assortment of prizes, including unique ships and gear. Right now, there is a chance to receive a Tholian Carriar or Cruiser, as well as a two mirror universe ships. However, each box will have a minimum or 4 lobi crystals each, but sometimes more ;)

Here is a complete article about the Lockboxes

- Where exactly can fleet credits be used?
Fleet credits are earn by contributing to fleet projects that help build the Starbase. Once the Starbase has reached a minimum level, store start to unlock on the your fleet's starbase that offer goods for both fleet credits and energy credits. However, the stores that take fleet credits must be provisioned, or stocked, through another fleet project before goods become available.

Run around inside and ask every NPC you see. They will tell you if you can shop there or not and what is required before they will open.

I hate random invites of any kind, and I have argued against them in every game I have played. They are rude. Proper etiquette is to send a tell asking if someone wants to join a team giving the reasons for the invite, etc. However, he is not talking about a random invite in this case.

He asked specifically about being in a Borg Invasion instance. There are only five people in the instance, and everyone knows why they are there. Expecting a detailed explanation of why you are sending an invite in such cases is a waste of everyone's time. In such cases, the invite is hardly random.

You are correct about most situations, but there are cases where explanations are redundant and unnecessary.

I don't like random invites in the warzone or Borg invasion either. If I don't know the invite is coming, I always decline it. You can invite someone to your team via the chat even if they've left your zone; if I can't see your ship (you're behind something, you're on the other side of the zone, etc.) then I don't know why you're trying to team with me. Even in those situations, it's best to ask first. It's not that hard to take a few seconds to type into zone chat that you'd like to team up before you start the fight.
