My comment is not limited to STO PvP and applies to PvP in any game:

Many to One targetting is a valid tactic that ensures enemies are removed from the battlefield quickly. If that means taking a weak opponent out first, then so be it. Decreasing OPFOR numbers increases your team's chance of killing the next target.

Maybe I misunderstood the meaning of your post. Perhaps you meant continuous griefing of a weak target? I will agree with you there. But Mav's post does not suggest griefing. In fact, he goes further to suggest that OPFOR is in actual team-mode - note the sentence where he states:

What he described was a true Many vs Many engagement where one team is on the offensive and the others react with defensive heals etc.
