1. He recommends people waiting at the portal (leeching)!
2. Waiting to destroy a gate? That's downright terrible for at least 3 reasons:
A. A Gate hits a lot harder than a couple of Spheres.
B. Halving the flow of probes ASAP can only help you finish in time.
C. Regroupping the whole team can only help you finish in time and spread the damage received around and focus targets down faster (btw, that's true in CSE as well: 5 Ships of any type will slaughter a wave of Negh'vars in no time).
I guess he operates under the misconception that those Spheres can go through the Portal, that's the only reason I can fathom for recommending to keep a Gate low while the other is worked on.
They don't, it should be obvious both by observing them and reading the objective (it says "Probes" not "all Borg Ships".
