Well, here is my story...

Last night in CSE I jump in to find myself with a group consisting of all beam boats except for me. There may have been a carrier...not sure. Things started out ok. I usually grab the Kang but somebody said they had it so I take probe killing duty. I soon realized that the group didn't have the firepower to do the kind of DPS needed, but eh it's a PUG and I don't really care as that kind of thing happens.

To make a long story short, my oncall phone rings so I'm kind of flying in circles while answering. When I get back I'm disoriented and thought someone had already blown one of the cubes. I join another shiip and kill the other...big mistake; the other cubes were still intact. Ok, I messed up, it happens and I have always just rolled with in silence because everyone makes mistakes and it is just a game.

In the past, the team would just knuckle down and still manage to pull out a win including the optional. But I guess in those cases, there were no emotionally crippled children in the group. The next thing I know someone I will call "stinker" takes time out from his busy schedule of getting blown up every few minutes to launch into a stream of semi-coherent profanity, punctuated by "noob" between rants. Now keep in mind we only had 3 minutes on the clock when I blew the cube and only one of the 3 cubes was completely cleared of probes. IOW, with the low dps people were puttng out there was no way we were going to beat the timer. I had the only ship with real firepower. Still, I figured you give it your all and hope for the best.

But stinker thought it more important to rant in chat. We time out. Now stinker's equally mental friends start launching their own rants. I was cracking up mostly because I never saw anyone misspell the f-word, but also because these "fat kids in their mom's basement" were foaming at the mouth over losing an STF they would have lost anyway because they were ill equiped.

My reason for posting this is thus; I think that some of the griefing people are seeing is the result of these kinds of people doing STFs. I have a pretty thick hide by nature, but some people take getting cursed out over and over personally. This isn't the first time some tardlet's ire was directed at me, but I ave seen the same kind of behavior time and again. I was tempted to leave after the first rant, but instead I told stinker to shut his hole and get on with it and stayed to the end. But I could see how others would just bail on them rather than listen to their blather. Or recognize them and screw up the optional out of revenge. Just sayin'.

For the record, if you are in a PUG with me, I will stick with it and you until the end. If you mess up, you won't hear it from me. I fact, I do PUGs in order to help people who don't know what they are doing (and because most fleets I've seen seem to be composed of 3 year olds).

And if you feel the need to rant, by all means rant at me. I won't even put you on ignore. Just know that I am probably laughing at you, so don't think I am ignoring you if I don't respond. Frankly, after 8 uears of SWG, the tards of this community are rank amateurs in the flaming department. :p

I had my worst STF today - Infected Ground - I got a bunch of solo players (yes, everyone seemed to look out for himself) instead of a team. I'd to wait 5 minutes an healing that never arrived, a couple of player in front of me notwhitstanding. After the Respawn put me beyond a force field I cannot remove alone, I had to took the penalty and leave.
Thank you losers!

What really annoyed me what the other night on 'The Cure', space.



Was onto the last nanite on the left, the only nanite left in the entire map,

TWO idiots, blow the far right cube when the rest of us asked them not to........then they move on to attack the middle cube, ignoring the spawns


As you can imagine by the time I got over to the Kang, I had a lovely view of it exploding....

I never, never PuG. Except once ... and only once. KAGN (my first normal in ages, and my last), 1 guy that ran forward once and died by his stupidity, then did nothing but sit there "needing" everything, and another idiot that was somehow trying, probably 7 years old, went into the room and asked what to click after I said several times that I'd do it. When I saw him post a message I said "GET OUT!" And he actually left and gave a small amount of effort ... very, very slowly ... one other guy was attempting with a better amount of effort and knew what to do but was silent except when he said in all caps that I was doing something wrong (which I was not ... and don't tell that to a KHG Elite Ferasan). The last person was my fleetmate, can't remember who, he hadn't done KAG before but I explained it and he gave PLENTY of effort for a newb. He was also the only reason I did it as you'd expect. Had a little trouble but I was most impressed with him above anyone else. We DID however finish it, with me having to extend shield time, every time. When we got to Tosk I used my Engi stuff and he went down pretty fast. Still, by FAR, worst STF I've done. Probably just because I don't PuG.

I was doing KAGE with some fleet mates. THey were al****le green but not bad. But we were one short. So we pugged it.

We were all pretty chatty, talking about the mission and stuff, except for this PUG. He didn't say a word to us the entire time, just chugging along flying ahead of use and getting himself killed by soloing everything.

WE finally get to the node room with a minute left on the clock, one of my fleet mates is having computer problems, so he relogs. Whatever... Then FINALLY after 15 minutes of silence this guy pipes up and says "What is going on?"...

After we just had this conversation about what is going on in chat...

I tell him "One of our guys is having comp problems and is relogging."

The optional expires D:

"You guys suck. This is the worst team i have ever played with."

"Fine, then Leave" I snapped back..

He did like a angry 13 year old boy.

We did the rest of the mission one person short, and everyone got prototype salvage XD

Actually, if I'm in a PUG with you, and I screw up somehow, I WANT you to tell me.

How else will I learn?

Do you want me to go into an epileptic seizure and call you a noob? :p

Somehow I don't think that's going to help you. If you ask, I'll tell you what I know, but I'm not going to start telling you you messed up simply because we don't know each other and who knows how you'll take it. I try to only **** people off on purpose and only when their stupidity or incivility demand it.

My observation: usually those players who are insulting you usually don't know the difference between your and you're :-)

Insulting player: your moron
me: my what moron?

What's worse, they have no imagination. What ever happened to the good old days when trolls and flamers took their craft seriously? If you are going to insult someone, put a little effort into it. :p
