I'm sitting in an empty Hive right now with 2 of those abominable soup cans and my glass escort because everyone else left. I was just trying to kill time before the mirror incursion. I can't win and if I leave I am not sure whether participation in the mirror event is possible if I leave because it says there is a ban if you leave before victory.
The ban is only for STFs, and won't affect you if you're the last one left.
I am the STO Lorax. I picked myself up and left, until the day the fun is replanted.
