There I was!!!

I just entered an ISE pug and out of the blue for no reason some clown starts yelling '$%@&^ you noobes!'

I say 'Uh, nobody's started even firing yet? So who's the noobe?'

The guy bales... :p

That was proof, that some people are just in there to be jerks... He was probably on vacation from middle school and has nothing better to do than be a jerk.

Life goes on, may his be filled with difficultys................

Unfortunately with summer upon us, that will be happening more and more.

I think you're right. We'll probably see more of this for the next few months.


My worst STF experience so far:
45 min till I had to leave for work. So, queued up for the Cure Space.
Waited a few minutes, then got the countdown.
Entered the map.
It was already completed, and the "leave now" countdown was running. Cubes already gone and Kang gone.

So, I hit the leave now button, and was rewarded with a 1 hour cooldown
"FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUU-"

everyone got a proto weapon drop in the last cure ground elite i did except me, i only got 2 lousy edc's and a useless mystery lockbox, ive been spamming cure ground elite for several days and not once have i gotten either rare or proto weapon drop, and i want my proto weapon drop so i can finish my mkxii set.

i was cheated out of my proto weapon drop.

thought we were all supposed to get the same drops when finishing an stf

Is there a channel for STF training, or at least for people that run STF teams that COMMUNICATE beyond "ur doing it wrong"?

For example, in Cure Space: -- deciding [A] who is going to guard the kang and [b] which cube to work over first. As opposed to what seems to be the standard "everyone head off in a random direction, then realize they're alone, then try to fly to where the others are."

I'm admittedly a newb and still working towards better gear. But, if the rest of the group actually acts predictably and *gasp* chats tactics instead of abuse I can figure it out.

Note -- I'm only doing space STF's. I'm not sure how well I'd team with others on the ground.

To be honest, whilst I haven't encountered what you experienced before, I have encountered some idiot spout off before the mission had started. He was gibbering about how the team was "fail" due to two science ships being present. I chose not to dignify his drivel with a response. And, typically, whilst I won'g pretend that his fleet escort was rubbish, I have seen better and, using target sub-systems/shield weakening/Viral Matrix III, Tetryon weaons & Tachyon Beam my T5 Bellerephon seemed to be almost as problematic to the Borg ships as his escort.

I dont normally pug a STF but yesterday I did and I had a team of 4 Oddys with Rainbow beams doing less then 50 DPS while I was hitting 1000+ with my AP dual cannons and Turrets, I said to one of them who was able to use GW2 to go to the gate and stop the nanite ships, he said he will but he then went over to the other set of gens and managed to pop them all which resulted in a massive wave of nanite ships, spheres and probes but the oddys had no affect and i destroyed most of them before the player that caused them to come went and stayed out the battle as he was 100km away causing the optional to fail, yet he was stealing all the loot by clicking need and called me and the rest of his fleet buddies noobs, he continued like this till the end of the mission. Turns out his fleet specialise in rainbow ships

I'm a noob and I figured out early on that matching weapons and consoles are the way to go.

AFAIK, it's EDC, "one mystery box" with the green Ferengi cube in it, and random leveled loot of mixed quality.
