I mean this is in the Elite STF channel what is this lame crap. It's not hard people and it takes less than a min to make a plan.
I'm am going to screenshot everything from here on out. You don't make a plan I'm going to start reporting this crap.
OP, by now most of us have done hundreds if not THOUSANDS of ESTFs. Believe me, if even half the players are on the ball and can keep aware of their surroundings (ie. help HEAL the Kang when it takes damage) there is little to worry about. Of course, sometimes you get teams with cruisers that run away from spheres, escorts that can't take down a single probe before it reaches the time gate, and sci vessels that use Grav wells/repulsors to PUSH ALONG enemy NPCs and help them get to where they want to get to faster.
Too many players like that in a group and no amount of planning will suffice. Luckily many of them grow as players and improve. One can hardly blame them though, its not like the game actually teaches you anything about how to fly a ship!
