Warning! STF leaver penalty affects PvP queues (closed, necro)
Learned this the hard way. Left zero communication STF that would take 2 hours and ended up with the usual STF leaver penalty. What was my surprise that I was not able to queue for PvP at all ? WTF ?

Same happened after, when I entered a cure, which was done and bugged, hence the only way to end it was abort mission - banned from PvP as well.

Seriously Cryptic. One thing is that you do not give any marks for PvP. Second thing is to not punish afk people, dilithium famers, but the last thing we all need is to be bullied by the queue system.

It's not my fault that PvE is easy, yet people are unwilling to learn tactics and make proper builds for their ships, because the game mechanics does not force the player to do so.

Why should we suffer this ? Imagine if leaving from PvP match would result in 1 hour ban for everything as well ? The forums would explode from PvErs whines.

So dear fellow PvPers, think twice before you leave STF...

Yep, horrible change.

I hope it was just an oversight and will be corrected.

I've never left a STF...

...but many a STF has left me.

This would be very annoying.

I have zero communication elite stfs many times
Every day I play and not only do we win we get
Opp 50% of the time or more

A lot of them I have to carry including tanking
And killing Donatra myself. It's mostly tactics
And build Not Dps . Any puglet can put out enough
Dps if she is tanked correctly to keep her from

Most pvers could care less if they get a 1 hour
Ban from leaving pvp because most are never
Going back


Close STO and reboot it usually let's you exit a failed
Mission like mentioned by the OP

Welcome to Pve. :)

Well I wont spend 3h in infected elite, killing of nanite spheres because people don't know how to make a ship that does not suck. You cannot fail that map, so you can be stuck there for eternity.

this is old news. been like this since the leaver crap got put into game.

This was around first time the penalty came into being. Thought it was fixed though.

Copy-paste is bad, m'kay, devs?
That or cryptic need to look seriously at their quality control department, if this is another case of merger in code for development, and when the long lead line gets implemented, it overrides changes on the live line.

Does it work in reverse? If you leave que it bans you from a STF?

I'm fairly certain this is not working as intended. I let QA know :)
