I have an experience to share, and I was hoping that others would share with me some of the things that you may have seen or actively been a part of during game play that does not involve just normal dps.

I was in an elite STF a couple of days ago (the conduit) and as we all joined, I saw that my team had 4 Sci officers and 1 Eng. I have been on teams like this before (with no tacs), and it had not gone well, so going into this one, I was hoping for the best, but also not expecting a whole lot either. Boy was I wrong...

The first part of the mission went ok, pretty average, and we took down the first power node without much difficulty (everyone seemed to know the 10% rule), but what came after was pretty amazing. We destroyed the two spheres which spawn around the power node with no trouble, and then we turned our attention to the borg mini-fleet which approaches from the gate. We did not communicate, or have a plan, about what happened next, it just kinda happened.

Three of us Sci officers had and used gravity well, and the other had a tykens rift which they also used. I fired off a scramble sensors, and then two of us sci's flew in close to use a charged particle burst to disable shields. Now I'm not sure which one was more effective: the three gravity wells tearing at them, the fact that they were shooting at each other compliments of the scramble sensors, their lack of shields or the fact that their comrades began blowing up all around them, but the entire mini-fleet was completely destroyed in about 8 seconds. After it was all over, two of us even said one word: "wow..."

Needless to say the rest of the mission went smoothly and it ended up being one of the best random teams I have ever been a part of, and all with no tacs. It was good to see in a game that is so heavily focused on dps, that a team with no tacs could do so amazingly well just using powers and abilities.

So, anyone else have any similar stories where something other than just plain dps was used with great effect? I would love to read them! Thanks!
