This however, this, is downright non-beneficial. It's not like I'm just playing through and then just not getting the luck of the draw in receiving my tech piece at the STF's finish. That's just fine, because then at least there's the consolation of getting nifty MK X-XII stuff and dilituem to boot. That's not the case however, we're failing... Over, and over, and over, and over again. Failure, after failure, after failure (and then getting punished for it with an hour cooldown time. Which admittedly, at times I have truly needed at that point just to cool down myself). I've successfully completed Cure Space Elite a total three times this last week, easily out of more attempts than there are currently years in my life (and frankly, I'm not THAT young anymore. We're talking a success rate of 1 out of every 10 attempts).

Cryptic, I'm almost willing to beg at this point... Something... has... to change. Make the MK XII special forces gear purchasable with "chips" for cryin' out loud! 60, 80, 100 of them, or even dilitheum, I don't care! At least then it would smooth out the necessary grind and I'd have the peace of mind in knowing it is an eventual achievable goal. In any of those suggested three numbers above I'd have been there already!
I've been on both sides of this one as of recent. The elite guide for STF players tells them to attack the cube. The current popular method for doing the run amidst a third of the game population wants people to do anything but. It's the one PUG run where confusion over what players should be doing reigns supreme because there is no mutual agreement over the right way. If you start telling some one that hasn't run enough to know what's up that the guide is wrong they are liable to think you a twit and perhaps rightfuly so based on the things people say do in an attempt to grief as of late in PUG runs...

If you want to improve your chances for a PUG winning talk over strategy at the start. No one ever does this though. However, it really doesn't matter HOW you do cure as long as everyone is working it together.

You want to go a step further and establish some agreement in the community? Great. Most people are too lazy to even think about writing a NEW Cure Space Elite guide to talk over in forum. Good luck. I look forward to seeing what you write.

Otherwise, you are just another whiny forum goer that reaps what they sew, moaning that everyone else is doing it wrong and not listening while every other player in the PUG is thinking the same thing about YOU... Frankly, I might fit this description too.

Chaos continues to reign and you are another minion, marching in its sweep.
