# 1 Why Teams?
03-20-2010, 06:46 PM
I don't mind the idea of teaming up in missions, but why is it a requirement for "Infected"? I finally got in it last night with a thrown together team of 5 people. None of us knew the other at all. We did our best to work together without having made the slightest plan. We got no further than Starbase 82, when the controller I was using, finally died. While I was trying to get back in as quickly as possible, I accidently logged out and could not rejoin my team. While fighting Borg, I didn't have a free second to chat about it, so they must have thought I bugged out on them. I can get back in, now, but without any help. My away team can't join me, so I'm going to have to find another team and start over. Granted, I wasn't that far into it, but why can't teaming just be an option? I work well with my BO's. They behave just as I expect them to and they don't get aggravated when I screw up. It would be nice to have the choice. I'm rather new to the whole gaming thing and maybe I'd like to be more confident before I play well with others.

Anyway, it's just a suggestion. BTW, anyone want to set a date for "Infected" in the near future? I've got nothing else to do, as it's the only mission I haven't done. Lol.

Yeah, that would be cool.

I would choose my Boff's over a PUG 90% of the time if that was even an option

to be fair i'm so anti-social i haven't even done infected yet ( I've no interest in grouping )-I only solo the first mission up to killing the tactical cube then just drop it. getting a mix of 10 to 15 mk X's that i don't need to share is better then the actual completion from what i hear.

I'd choose my BO's over Pugs (which I do a lot) and Fleet groups. Why because I create and build up my BO's and to me they are my group.

Its a "Raid-i-sode" its designed for 5 Players. All MMOs have some form of requirement for players to group together and to fight the Big Boss. In Infected, A team of 5 beams down to defeat the Borg Queen. WoW has 5, 10, and 25 man PvE groups to take down bosses and other threats to the world. Infected is just the first threat we are faced up against.

FYI - Infected is not the Borg Queen

But the thing is that usally in most MMO's you can't field a whole party of NPC's. And it is the numbers that you need to defeat the boss. However in STO you can fill in the party with NPC's and NOT MAKE THE RAID EASIER....I'll reapeat....NOT MAKE THE RAID EASIER. Now the NPC's imo are pretty good in this game but not as good as player for the most part so for those of us that want to raid with them it will even be more of a challange than when grouping with people so why not let it be an option for those of us who want the challange. Also allow us to fill out our party with BO's like in normal missions when we don't have a full party of player.

Well the human element is required to activate a series of consoles simultaneously.
