Yes, It would be cool if we could have a 'Worst STF' contest. :p

And I agree with you, these days I'm only in it for what I can sell on the exchange. I've been doing the Childrens Toys since the day it came out 3 or 4 times a day and I have yet to get anything I can use on my ship. So, I need credits to buy the stuff.

I'm prepared to host it. What would be a suitable prize? Something useful. Hmm. Secret

I'm about to start my daily STF routine and would be happy to post if anything fails majorly.

Though, knowing my luck, I'll probably end up kicking butt all over the galaxy with some elite Klingon warriors instead with no sort of failure in sight xD

Plan for the worst and hope for the best.

Btw Jake I think you may have been trolled in that last one you posted! :p

I just finished a KASE run. Or more accurately I left before an inevitable failure.
Got in and I gave my now standard "time to rock and roll" in the old C&C commando voice .
No reply. Okay I thought let's go on they may have their volume turned down so we went on. I noticed they were all KDF and all members of the "Orion marauder girls" fleet. Oh and before I forget they were all orion women and all flying a bortas
I sighed, shrugged and went on. I was in my usual fleet escort captained by my tac called Tala. We moved up on the cube, with me being the last in. Surely those 4 in their big beefy bortas cruisers could handle tanking the tac cube for a few seconds even with their rainbow beams?
My hopes were in vain. During the 15 seconds between them engaging the tac cube and me catching up to them 3 of them had been destroyed. Three of them taken out nigh instantly! I was shocked, appalled and horrified all at the same time. Worse was yet to come as the instant I got within weapons range the borg ship decided to ignore the orion females in their implausibly poorly built cruisers and target me instead. I decided to disengage for a few seconds and line up for another run at it. This also had the side effect of allowing me to see if the last orion was any good. Sadly I never got that chance as the cube decided to ignore her entirely and started chasing me even though I was already out of weapons range.
"Lovely" I said to myself.
It appeared that I was the closest thing to a real tank in the match and I think that those 4 realised that I was surviving against the tac cube for far longer than the 4 of them combined. I think this because after this for the entire match I was also followed by them. All 4 of them.

"So what am I? Mother goose?!" was my initial reaction. No response. I typed this into the chat box. No response. I try zone chat in case they had their team chat off for some reason. No response. I even tried sending each one of them the same thing via PM and still I got no reply.

It was irritating to say the least. I was just about managing to hold the probes at bay but I simply could not find the time to make a run at the generators let alone the gates. I was too busy holding off all the probes from both sides single handedly with the 4 dead weights in tow. No matter where I went, what I did or what I said they simply followed me. I even tried letting some probes through just to see how they reacted which had no effect.

In the end I simply had enough and left. I wouldn't be surprised if they followed me through the exit too

TCSE as Klingon.
We started. No one said something. I like to be rude as klingon so then I didn't say anything.
I went on the right and I shoot nodes. Someones talked in german. No one answered. Btw my german is far away. After a while someone said. Don't shot the cube. I thought, ok. I stopped at 10%. And I went to the second cube. Meanwhile 4 players are taking borg raptors. When I started the cube I thought that's strange because I'm the only one on cube and they are 4 to take probes. I was shoot. I respawn and I looked the Kang. I gave it heal And I was shoot again. Ok. I respawn. Someone said that no one helped him. we lost the optionnals. I got killed again. I respawn and someone said : "next time someone should take cubes" and we total failed.

Dude you have the worst luck with groups for as long as I've been playing this game.

# 236 Why they fail?

I just saw someone on EliteSTF say he'd (or she'd, hard to tell these days) never done an Elite STF.

At least he was kind enough to ask how to do them before he trashed a few. How many people would not have asked???

So there is positive proof, luck has nothing to do with bad STF PuGs. It's simply a givin.

KASE with my sci klink in Vo carrier.

Noticed that the tac cube took forever to kill so I was a bit worried. Was going to go right but saw two others going that way so I went left and started beating on probes. Took down two of the transfomers to spawn cube but was far enough away it just swatted at my fighters and took down the second set of probes. This is where I noticed two really bad things, a cruiser was trying to 'help' with the probes and doing no noticeable damage. In addition someone just died trying to solo a cube. So I finish off the cube and start working on the generator while helping the silly cruiser to kill probes as he couldn't handle two at a time. Once the generator was gone I went up and killed the cube that kept killing the other guy with full knowledge that probes were going to get threw but I didn't care at that point. I was hoping the other side was faring better even though they only had two people so I head over there to take a look.

Not a single thing has been destroyed, they are both killing probes.

A probe got past, we were already 10 minutes in. I left.

I feel bad for leaving cause maybe one of those people were decent but I just couldn't take it.

Slightly off-topic (I guess) - but had a really challenging IS normal earlier - queued for it, and myself, a Fleet Escort, and a Bortas appeared. An Oddy and a Prometheus appeared too but the latter two both bailed two mintues into the mission leaving only myself and the aforementioned two ships.

Message comes in from one of the other players - "Think we can do this with only three players". Myself and the other player agreed that it was worth a shot, and continued. I took the probes whilst the other two concentrated on the transformers etc. Unfortunately I did let the team down somewhat, as we failed the optional as a result of one of the probes managing to enter the gate before I could finish it off. Thankfully reinforcements arrived in the shape of two more players, one flying a Defiant and the other a Dreadnought - they really helped mop up the probes, and the mission ran a little more smoothly thereafter.

# 239 Bad day on the rise.

Off topic.

Day 3 of my 4 day weekend.

This morning I woke up and came in to see what I'd crafted with Childrens Toys.

A purple TCD. Not too bad. It's sellable.

So I checked the mail and picked up a couple items that had expired.

I started reposting things in my sleep.

I found after a couple minutes that I had accidentally posted my powered artifact for 499899 credits.

About that time I saw it sell.

So I bit the bullet and bought one for 1400000.

I beamed up to the bridge and got the fresh childrens toys started

Beamed back down and started checking duty officers on the exchange.

What do I find???

A Damage Control Engineer WITH Resolve, WITH Efficient for 6000000 EC.

HOLY CRAP!

He's now part of my crew AND doing a Childrens Toys.

Yippee....

It all works out in the end. :p
