The idea of quitting an online simulation is indicative of how weak their spirit is, and how easily that spirit is crushed by those with more training and commitment. I can only imagine what they will do if ever asked to truly defend themselves.

Yours in persistent, patient, persevering Plasma,
You incorrectly attempt to apply real-life tactics to a video game. In real-life, retreating from the "battlesphere" does in fact mean that you lose, as there are real, tangible losses. In a video game, (especially STO, where there is no incentive to win) the objective is to have fun. One is not going to have fun by waiting 20 minutes for their misguided, egotistical opponents to decloak.

Yours in practical, fun-loving, realistic [who cares],
