I'm not sure about but I guess I have something attractive and bad players are always in my PUG
Yesterday.
KASE. We started by the cube. I said "Hi". Someone said "hihi" and another said "Hey hey". Suddenly, one die. It was a Tac. Cube was killed. And we were 3 to fight spheres. Two went to the cube nearby the gate. When sphere were shooted. We 3 we went to cube. One of 3 players with a cute girl name said "10% rules". I answered "ok". The guy repeated "10% rules". The other guy who fought spheres with me said "ok". The guy with girl name said again "who doesn't know 10% rules?. No answer. We started shooting gen. Suddenly this stupid Tac went to shot my gen. I stopped at 12% and he was still shooting. Gen blew up. We did quickly to kill another gen. But it was too late. NAnites went and we fail the optionnals. Finaly we make clean the left side and we went to the right side. The guy with girl name said "10% rules". We started shooting gen. Suddenly I saw behind me there is no gen anymore. I shot mine quickly. The guy with girl name said. "good job". I said it's not me. And he said. It's the Tac. The other guy, the guy with girl name and me worked together to make clean the place. We heal each other of us not to be killed and we soot the gate and the cube. We ignored those two guys who don't communicate especially the saboteur. We did good job but it would be better if we work 5 teammates...

TCSN. We started. I said "Hi everyone ". No answer. I said "anyone who cares the Kang. Shout or hail if any problem". No answer. All went on the left except one. I shoot two nodes and I looked on my back. I saw two borgs. I went overthere to help the guy. When we made it clear he's gone and let me alone. I started have good exchange with borgs. I made it clear. And I said "It's too bad. There are 3 engineers in this team. And no one knows how to heal the KAng ". No answer. But they did it. Two engineers and I we fought and heal the KAng or any ship who needs it. We failed the optionnal but we did it. And nobody said something. When it's end up, I took my loot and I said : "thx everyone to share your thoughts" and I left. Really bad

Sometimes I really think I'm not normal player because I like exchange with my teammate. Just to know who do what or something like this. When all of the team keep silence. It's like playing a boring daily mission.

Now it seems you REALLY need to schedule some runs with me. I'll show you how to cast area charm (Lt. Cdr secretary skill) and get everyone into the correct "Desperate Housewives Drama" mood and win the optional without exerting much effort at all

ISE is easily savable even if someone deliberately sabotages the 10% rule. It's called repulsors, or even better, gravwell

For CSE, avoid like plague unless with premade. You need DPS and lots and lots of DPS to even have a chance to survive there. Otherwise it'll soon become a slugfest against Raptors supported by Negh'Vars and the majority of PUGs will give up when the going gets tough.

Before you can get anyone into any kind of mode, they still need to have their chat screens on. Many still do not know how. I've flown up right in front of many where i know they can see my chat balloon and expressed my admiration of their noobness. And still no chat, not even anything nasty.


There I was....

I know I hit cure normal space but I was pugged into a cure elite space.

The first thing I see is I'M LATE!

The second thing I see is a cube go 'BOOM'.

I fly up next to the Kang and theres a guy there yelling and hollering about him telling the others not to kill the cubes.

Then someone replys (to my supprise) 'Why? You're supposed to kill the cubes.'

The rantor bails out with a quick 'DON'T PLAY ELITES NOOBES UNTIL YOU READ HOW'.

Another ship says 'FU Noobes' and bails out.

Now it's me and two oddys with technicolor rainbow beams.

I said, 'Yall have fun now, yahear?'

And I bailed out.

No big deal about the hour wait, I wasn't even really planning on doing that PuG.

I was just called a stupid noob because I followed the elite guide for cure elite space in a STF we won. As a matter of fact I was told that the elite guide posted here in forum is wrong and trash that no one can do it even though I’ve followed it to success with optional in many a PUG… This told unto me by some one that doesn’t seem to even know what the damn thing says here in forum. O.o

I hate being called names when I did exactly what I am supposed to do per community agreement by a little snit that thought holding a cube at 20% and working as a group to get it there first before leaving a man on it was impossible.

As a matter of fact, I didn’t make an issue of it. Instead I said if you want to do it differently fine, then lead the way. What do you want done? He didn’t say anything just acted like a snit and seemed to think I should 20% one alone when the Negh’vars spawned to somehow prove he was right and the guide trash….

I mean if you don’t want to follow the guide fine, man up and call the PUG. But don’t rage at people for doing what the community seems to agree is right and going further in trying to go along with them anyway when they are doing differently.

Is the Elite guide here in forum trash folks? I mean heck, everyone goes right instead of left at start anyway.

Maybe its my own fault for not finding an STF group yet.

Lately I was having great success in PUG. Great communication, teamwork, and people actually complimenting each other

Well until today. Two terrible experiences that make me wonder why I play this game when everything is a lottery anyways. I really wish there was more solo play that offered some kind of worth while rewards.

CGE I'll keep it short
1 Klingon player, 2 fleet mates, 1 girl ( I assume), and myself. Waiting in lobby for shield to come down, no one is saying anything. Shield drops, 1 fleet player starts typing "USE OMEGA" over and over in chat. I have no intention of changing my maco set, especially when he is being rude and said nothing during the wait to start. The girl player explains she doesn't has an omega set. We kill first set of Borg. The 2 fleet mates are still at start and refusing to continue, they than come on speaker and start shouting "USE OMEGA" over and over. Klink player leaves. I am about too leave also, but figure why should I take a 1 hour penalty. I go ahead and start the timer. For the rest of the way the 2 fleet mates bring up the rear while me and the girl take all the punishment.

So with only 4 we miss the option and finally get to Armek. Just as we start the Klingon player returns, disconnected I assume. The 4 of us quickly finish off Armek and for some reason the Klingon player starts using obscenities and calling us all noobs. Even though he was absent the whole time and now will get some free loot. The girl was the only reason I stayed, she was communicating and taking everything in stride with a good sense of humor. So hat's off to her, I was in a far worst mood.

KASE
1 player telling everyone what to do, 2nd player telling everyone what he is going to do, 3rd player in a shuttle.
The player in the shuttle refuses to leave. I end up on right side helping with cubes and taking care of probes.
Player 1 is mad at me because he wanted to handle right probes. I didn't want to handle the probes, it defaulted to me because everyone else flew away and he is on the left side, so I have no idea why he is mad. Everyone is bickering back and forth, I just keep my mouth shut and continue to blast away. Player 1 ends up leaving. So 3 of us and a shuttle have to finish the mission. It was painful, but still pushed through and came close on the option.

Only good thing I can say is that I found allot of new people to add to my ignore list...

For the first bad experience, I would simply type, "I'll use whatever set i want to use. Then add, "Besides MACO'S BETTER!!!!" then put him on ignore

For the second one, there is simply nothing to say about the dude in a shuttle except, "What. A. Dumbass"

Oh, I had an infected run today (space elite) that went the wrong way. We had a rookie pilot go wrong and blow a generator too early without knowing what 10% referred too. This happens sometimes. However we had a crazy russian throw a baby fit, start calling everyone noobs, and run to the starting area where he sat and called names at people still playing. I think he cursed us in Russian or something stupid like pig latin. I did report him to a GM for griefing an STF PUG.

I lost focus on what I was doing in anger and frustration and did a few dumb things of my own. I mean the noob went and tried to shoot the gens down to 10% while the nanite probes were active (which I couldn’t see at first) on the next, a hateful waste of humanity being a brat to everyone…

I had to quit as a worthless POS like that so called VET that couldn’t man up and play just be insulting to everyone in his “specialness” took all the fun out of playing a PUG. I did make sure he knew I thought him a worthless piece of **** first but still left the run and am sitting here angry, trying to decide how to have fun anyway today.

I am starting to wonder if PUGS are good for my soul. Game is supposed to be fun, win or lose you know? Not an exercise in dealing with filth… People like that ruin games everywhere every day and if I’m not careful I could become akin to them by turning into an angry vet.

Jerk had to be a Klink. Now I don’t even want to level my Klink today lol..

That's why you need to hang with another friend. That way even if things go south, you'll still have fun with a buddy.

Of course the ignore button is also your friend.

With someone you know in the same team you can use him/her to break the stagnation of team chat easily by posting humorous subjects or just plain doing all the crucial team roles with your mates and everyone else would be filled with praise.

Having multiple persons with the right chemistry on the same map is also an automatic deterrence to the ones who came in just to be rude. After all you can demonstrate "cooperative engagement capability" not just on ships but on the chat box as well

The other side benefit is that with friends along for the elite PUG ride, you can create awesome videos (which also enhances team identity!).
