I was saying in that thread that I see problems with DSEs. I'll give this a chance and pretend I'm doing things wrong and the system is OK.
So I contact a signal and I join the fight. I'm alone in there, or just with 2-3 players that are also wandering around (the social skills of players here seems to be dead for some reason). So I wait for the reset timer when all of a sudden, 8 ships spawn and turn my ship into swiss cheese. Not fun.
Another scenario is the one in which me and some random players kick the crap out of a klingon group, while we're not teamed. Although I receive credit towards the Mission Objective, how does looting work in this case? Certainly it doesn't go to the player that drew the first shot because this happened to me.... I shot first and some other player got to look the battle cruiser.
How are we, the players, supposed to approach DSEs? Only in full teams, so that we don't have to die? And yes, while the penalty for dying in this game virtually doesn't exist, I still don't want to take the redneck way out and die 20 times while zerging.
So... what am I doing wrong?
Edit: And I don't even want to go as far as asking how the aggro system works in this game... Getting cut in half by 5 ships at once just because I tossed an Engineering Team I at an ally is NOT a good aggro system.
