Sigh. I should know better than to get into this any further. And yet...

That is completely irrelevant to me. I don't ever play with anyone else. I've been here a year or so and have never teamed with anyone. This is mainly because my playtime is extremely limited - I have to be able to bail at a moment's notice, and I do not like bailing out on a team. So no, for *me* it is never ever about competitive results. It is always about enjoying myself in something that somewhat resembles the Star Trek universe in the precious moments I can spare.

I'm not scoffing. It simply is not relevant to my playstyle or to my initial question.

Other players obviously enjoy min/maxing, making the best build they can, competing against one another, and so on. And it's great that they can do that here and enjoy themselves. I have exactly zero problems with that. It's just not for me. Will that ever change? I don't know - if that becomes important to me, the quads go in the trash bin. Well, OK, probably at that point the quads would be stuck on the Ar'kala in my 'mothballs' stack and I'd be flying something more endgame-worthy, but you get the gist.
