It's not so much the optional that bothers me -- I expect that at least one person will run over the trigger lines in order to Rambo down a bunch of borg (or die instantly), but the simplest part of the whole map, the "we need three people to click at the same time" is often the most frustrating part of the whole IGE experience.

Also -- the guy who trains borg in KAGE to the spawn point.
The only time I have ever seen you in IGE you were running around with a fire extinguisher and screwing up the optional stuff purposely.

But hey, it was amusing enough. Especially when no one would rez you and you had to wait forever just to do it again.

I actually don't use my extinguisher too often in STFs, but since it's always on my skills bar, it inadvertently comes out at least once during every STF I run. Regarding the optional in IGE, I simply don't care about it. IF someone doesn't ruin it immediately, it's enormously frustrating to move through the STF, making sure all the hostages are rescued, only to have some chucklehead mess it up on the ninth or last guy -- it adds an incredibly painstaking layer to the mission, so I simply ignore it (it fails 98% of the time) and move through the rest of the map. And I think you'll find that Dentals are rarely rezzed in ESTS regardless of how well we're doing.

But yeah, your account seems pretty accurate.

Because extra rewards are a bad thing. Would you like 35% more? "No!" - reminds me of a commercial.

My worst is when a player destroys the generator right away in Infected Space Elite, two of us are science so we are able to hold back the spheres, destroy the other generators, then destroy the transformer, cube, and the spheres...all while the idiot ran to the other side and destroyed a generator there as well. Some people are determined to grief others.

We almost always get the optional, if someone goes early we just run in and save the guys. Just the other day we beat the first boss with less than 2 minutes left and still got the optional. It was really fun, at the end we had to run past 2 groups of borg and into the room to save the last two with 2 seconds left.

We never rez anyone who is a liability and will only make the mission harder. Fleet names don't matter.

I prefer getting the optionals because it means having to spend less time doing boring ESTF.
On my main characters i have the reps filled, but on my Romulan i'm still working on it and the less time i spend in ESTF the more time i can spend in foundry/pvp

How does a guy flying a freebie Star Cruiser with a hodgepodge of outdated equipment and minimal twitch reflexes score an order of magnitude higher than a guy flying a dreadnought warbird? Ask the guy I went into a 4v4 PvP with who spent all but the last 60 seconds of the match sitting at the spawn point.

Be in pug ISE

Observe scimitar staying under cloak most of the match.

Be carrying the pug, and getting swamped by spheres. Watch teammates die, optional fails, it happens.

But then, the scim pilot starts running his mouth about how bad your DPS is. Parsing while we play I am at 9125, he is at a laughable 1834 (mostly due to the fact he hasnt shot a damn thing since the first transformer went down 5 minutes previous)

Banter back and forth, etc.

Blow gate, aggro tac cube. No points in threat or any consoles with threat on them.

Scimitar decides to try to prove how badass he is

Watch aggro never leave me. Observe ACT and see my dps vs cube is 16500 while his is about 5000.

Have much lolz.

*watches as nabreeki lifts an entire globe off the ground*

As he stands as a bronze stf demigod, nabreeki's muscles ripple as the light illuminates his torso.

Shhhh... Nabreeki is about to speak.

"I HAVE THE POWER!!!!!"

*echoes*

rofl....

Just kidding.

Yet for many I see it is Mission Impossible, they A don't look and check there surrounding9not requited but a smart idea), or they die a hundred times then complain even more when they cant stay alive for than a second or kill the Large Nanite Generator before the Nanite Spheres get there. Just funny if you ask me, if you want you can post the worse teams you have seen and why if you want.
