So there I am stopping them. Or people start out protecting Kang or stopping probes then move off to attack a cube/generator. Makes me laugh.

1) Noobs who are using <Mk X gear. *I can pull off an STF with white Mk X gear, if I so needed to. It's all in the build.

2) Noobs who don't know what the chat box is, or have it shut.

3) Noobs who don't know what they are doing in the mission, and fail to ask for help.

4) The "wannabe-Fleet Commanders" who try to order people to do stuff. No one wants to listen to you!

5) Trolls. *Nothing you can do if you get one of these. Report them.

6) AFKers or people who tab-out in the mission loading screen. *Report them.
Easiest solution to both above posts:

Don't pug.

Go to PublicEliteSTF, ask how to do things, and answers will be given (most of them not troll). If you team with players from there, roughly 50% are competent, 25% good, 10% VERY good, and 15% idiots. Thankfully you usually get the other 85%.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder. <--- DR proved me wrong!
