The ban is only for STFs, and won't affect you if you're the last one left.

Entered ISE and then one of the others on the team says, lets do Fleet alert instead and everyone but me left. Was late and 1 joined then imediatly left. Needless to say that kinda sucked.

Did a CSE and everyone had a T5.5 or better ship, all cruiser except 1 scimi. i went to the middle and started on those spheres while they did they kang and sometimes the spheres on the right. Completed the sphers and moved onto the right spheres, got those and the cube. made it back to the middle cube and the kang exploded. 7 minutes on the timer to go too. How can 4 ships that are not rainbow boats not protect the kang? I really can understand if they are all the free ships from leveling and all rainbow builds, but these guys must be even worse than a newbie. Anyway it was bad but didnt upset me.

Worst ESTF was 4 mirandas with no consoles and default equipped. yeah T0 weapons... Yeah we died allot but was fun.

ISE earlier today.

Long story short - fool in a Scimitar, lacking the ability to listen, ignored the first cube and instead flew off to destroy a transformer. Needless to say, epic fail ensued.

my first ground stf:

almost a week after i started making elite stf's (all elite) i decided to que up for a ground stf, elite too. i enter in the pve journal and a few seconds later ... *pop*

i think my gear was jem hadar full set mk xi, and a crm200...

me and my team beam to the map, and i go alone *uaahh* ... insta killed by a few borg, and they get that bug where they run very fast towards the spawn zone...
my team mates yell at me... but i pretend im not paying attention to the chat
we can get rid of the bugged borg, and we continue, until a fancy room with a elite tac borg drone, there i noticed : *wth ?! my cold dealing weapon is doing 1 dmg, and wtf is that addapt sign ?! put that in your *cough* *cough* !! i die, and after almost a minute, i respawn.
i get lost in those tunnels, and with a lot of effor, i finally make my way towards my team mates. when i got there, we lost optional, and a guy teaches me how to remodulate my weapons *ah good old newbie times* ... we made our way killing some borg, and we finally found the boss, i got killed a lot of times, BUT in the end, ive got a mk xii borg tech armor *before season 7, oor 6 i dont quite remember* i posted the item in the team chat, and i remember them saying, *$#? you ... lalala... ive been weeks trying to get that !

thats it, my first, worst, and luckiest stf ever
"Achiever Killers often look to 1v1 duels for proof of their superior play and are frustrated by "rock paper scissor" game mechanics."
That's me !

Every time I use my alt. I don't know if the game pairs you with like geared players, my main just puts out way too much dps or most puggers are bad but my alt just has a hard time getting through e stfs at a reasonable pace

Just did an infected elite and a member of particular fleet know to grief other players blew the optional then flew off and bragged about it and then taunted the rest of the team until 2 players had enough of him and left. It's bad enough having to pug with people that do it out of ignorance but to have people do it on purpose just to grief other players is going to far. I was under the impression that this fleet was trying to improve its reputation, but when it's members do this kind of stuff it just shows what some of them are really about.

I just finished Khitomer In Stasis (Elite) and a member of the fleet your talking about had a buch of injuries on his characters to start the mission he kept running ahead and dying hoping the rest of us would take to long when that did not work he went in the control room and made it impossible to lower the right shields for the team to advance and get the optional.

People like that are not happy with their lives so they enjoy annoying others.

Too bad I cannot say what I want to about this guy or call him out. But it would be nice to see a post from some of this fleets senior leaders as to if this type of behavior is encouraged. My understanding is that they make it a point to grief the ERP palyers and do some mild RP of thier own. Thier fleet web page and other forum threads are humerious and overall harmless but to go into STF's and sabotage it so that the team has to take a 1 hour penality. Or to blow the Optional then stop fighting and brag about it and taunt the other players until they quit is something that should get someone banned from the game. If this fleet is true to what they say and that they are just about harmless fun then this person should be kicked from said fleet.

Thank you for bringing this issue to my attention. While we are, in fact, working hard to improve our relationship with the playerbase, you must understand that with roughly four fleets and many hundreds of players under our umbrella, we do have people falling through the cracks. Please send the character/@names of those involved to @nabreeki via in-game mail, and I'll take care of it.

Thanks.

My worst stfs was Khitomer Vortex Normal. My fleet admiral and I decided to pug it together while we waited for the rest of the fleet to show up.

We both run 3 piece Oddy sets with all the consoles. Both of us were at teir 4 in all reputations. Advanced MkXII fleet beams x 6. Me disruptor him phaser. Borg torp launcher on front, Borg cutting beam on back.

Mission starts, we announce that him and I have probes. Generally hell watch both sides while I help bring down the gens and spheres on the side everyone is on while keeping an eye out if he needs help.

Everything was going fine until one of the pugs starts screaming at my fleet admiral to kill the spheres on his sides. As in immediately ignore the probes he was killing and focus on the spheres first. You know, the ones NOT on the active side and lightly tickling his shields while he kills probes first?

We ignore it and this just infuritates the guy. He takes multiple breaks from firing his weapons to instruct everyone how it should be done. Keep in mind, everyone but him is doing fine without him.

We kill the gates with plenty of time left and not a single probe having even gotten close enough to the gate to take a postcard photo.

In comes Donatra. As per standard, I politely say in local, "Remember boys and girls stay 6km from Donatra or she gets scared and cloaks". I'd like to think everyone knows this, but it doesn't hurt to remind everyone, politely, that this is SOP.

OMG KILL THE SPHERES, guy tells me that it doesn't work like that anymore and charges right in. Thankfully it doesn't matter as he spends most of the time in respawn limbo, listening to the best of Yani on loop I can only presume. Donatra is killed, the day is saved, guy warps out.

The best part? He was flying the Teir 1 Enterprise. With....yes the grappler hook. Either that was the worse player I've ever seen or he most convincing troll.
