Now I'm new to this hole fleet thing but I know how it works.

So I implore people who just jump into PVE fleet actions alone, you are not alone you are with other people so play to your strengths. If your in a escorts attack attack attack, if your in a cruiser help other people out.

Your cruiser is not a battleship. I can deal out quite a bit of damage especially with my torpedo's after I cut down their shields with my beams but it's so crap when I'm surrounded by cruisers helping them out with my buffs while they simply just fly around trying to beat everyone to the kill.

Is it always like this?
Unfortunately. Especially in Fleet Actions where the best reward is given to the best DPS. It is not the players fault really. It is a flaw of the system. The players simply adapted to the game and the only ones who really play to the mechanics of team play are pre-made groups.
