If I can be blunt? Most of the problems I've had with STFs are just brand spanking new players that don't have anyone they can ask questions, and all the "older" (I will not say mature) players showing a need for anger management the first time something even looks like it might not be perfect.
Well this is fine and dandy in fairytale land, in reality what usually happens is they tell you to shut up and let them play their own way. Believe me, i have tried the nice route. It rarely works, if ever.

There comes a point that you have to realize that there are a lot of mental defuncts who play this game and that it is a waste of time grouping with them. Just get yourself a good fleet, or stick to eliteSTF and you should be fine.
