I wrote in the chat after 2 mins if they thought this through, the "one guy" lol'd and came to help. now everything seemed fine, until the first cube was down (we had good dps, so it was still in time). I go immediately to the other cube, since two is more then enough to defend even against the raptors. now the rest didnt think that, so I had to destroy 5 probes til I saw another friendly, and when we killed the rest the third guy showed up for the cube.
and with the last the rest was on the third cube with me (after I destroyed 3 nanites, since the one raptor that was left and the two neghvars were quite a challange), and we finished happily.

the funny thing is, we even got the optional. I honestly do not know how we managed that (maybe I was not the onlyone who had a ship equipped for elite, I dunno), since we averaged 2 ppl at the cubes still I had a good laugh, which was not spoiled by a bitter ending
While poorly executed sometimes these 'alternative solutions' can be somewhat entertaining.

"Everyone tend to your own cube" is actually quite doable so long as everyone is armed for speed blasting. Whomever gets their cube down first gets a flagon of Romulan Ale, I guess.

When I was in a PUG CSE with low DPS, the 'tend to your own cube' tactic tends to work. It took a royally long time to get everything demolished, but it didn't fail because someone flew in and blasted a cube prematurely.

Sometimes I host these low DPS CSEs for fleet ops to demonstrate that while everyone's cruisers can be great, they are encouraged to learn to fly destroyers/escorts too for certain scenarios. It's not as though we need to bring civilian families and thousand man crews in the back for hi risk missions anyway
