It's not the worst but it could be.
In the channel elitestf, I joined a private stf. It was KASE. I already played with some guy. So then I know what is their skill and they know mine. One said I take probe on the right. Another said I take probes on the left. And the owner said I take left. All on the right. Another guy asked 10% on the gate or kill it? Nobody answered.
We started. We killed the Tac cube really quickly. And everyone went on the right. Suddenly the owner said "need on all". To be honest I didn't understand what this does mean and nobody answered. 2 probes passed out and the owner said "we lost optionnals". Someone said why? And the owner said it's because there is no one to take probe on the left. Someone went to the left to take probes. And the owner with two player got scold because we didn't understand his order. Finally because nobody answered the question. We killed the gate. And again the owner scold us.
Because it's elite stf with experienced players from elitestf channel. We did our job. Only two probes passed out and we didn't run the stf longer. I don't want imagine with pug...

I wrote in the chat after 2 mins if they thought this through, the "one guy" lol'd and came to help. now everything seemed fine, until the first cube was down (we had good dps, so it was still in time). I go immediately to the other cube, since two is more then enough to defend even against the raptors. now the rest didnt think that, so I had to destroy 5 probes til I saw another friendly, and when we killed the rest the third guy showed up for the cube.
and with the last the rest was on the third cube with me (after I destroyed 3 nanites, since the one raptor that was left and the two neghvars were quite a challange), and we finished happily.

the funny thing is, we even got the optional. I honestly do not know how we managed that (maybe I was not the onlyone who had a ship equipped for elite, I dunno), since we averaged 2 ppl at the cubes still I had a good laugh, which was not spoiled by a bitter ending
While poorly executed sometimes these 'alternative solutions' can be somewhat entertaining.

"Everyone tend to your own cube" is actually quite doable so long as everyone is armed for speed blasting. Whomever gets their cube down first gets a flagon of Romulan Ale, I guess.

When I was in a PUG CSE with low DPS, the 'tend to your own cube' tactic tends to work. It took a royally long time to get everything demolished, but it didn't fail because someone flew in and blasted a cube prematurely.

Sometimes I host these low DPS CSEs for fleet ops to demonstrate that while everyone's cruisers can be great, they are encouraged to learn to fly destroyers/escorts too for certain scenarios. It's not as though we need to bring civilian families and thousand man crews in the back for hi risk missions anyway

3 players had to kill nodes, cubes and transformers. One said something. And they realized they are from Texas. So then they went into a stupid blahblah about Texas. Texas rules, America is best. Whole of world is ****. English speakers as second language are b****. And... We totaly failed Because while they were busy to say bad words against everything is not from Texas. They forgot to play

That's hilarious LOL thanks for sharing it.

While I run a fleet of rednecks, they don't seem to make the mistake of going AMERICA F YEAH when the Borg is shooting them and expect such speeches to do any sort of DPS to the enemy.

Nations' pride is only applicable if Optional is won. Pfft. Lol!

From my post above yours the guy flaming us for saying good morning was "from certain central European nation" - so displays of national pride can backfire too!

(Disclaimer - I'm pro US and currently -not- living in the USA, just found it funny )

That's why I founded a newbie -only- fleet. You're welcome to drop by if you want to see nice veterans who like nothing better than to extend shields to newbies so they can earn a Glorious Victory (bloodwine not included)

Rant:

If you're going to call "I got Kang," don't wander off to left side and pew-pew at the nanite stack by yourself (ignoring the incoming raptors the whole time).

Admittedly, the "I HAZ AWESOME [censored] AOE DPS" in team chat from the same individual gave me warning about what kind of person this was, so I quietly protected the Kang instead.

Skittleboats that just spam BFAW...

I'm sure if you're an addled candy-raver it looks REALLY COOL. But it's not especially effective at killing anything.

There is Was..........

Cure Normal Space.

I puged in and saw two oddys, a klink and a kitty.

I said 'Hi' as normal, no responce.

I zipped on over to the first cube and fired a couple shots at the nodes.

I look back and all four of the other ships were setting at the Kang.

So I figured I'd conduct an experament.

I flew back to the Kang and just sat there with the others.

One of the oddys was firing his technicolor rainbow beams, the Klink was doing nothing and the Kitty had some little knats buzzing around.

I sat my weapons power on minimum (Stun) and fired away every once in a while at a Borg ships closing on the Kang.

The Klink was still doing nothing and an oddy was doing nothing. The other oddy was firing away with his technicolor rainbow beams and the Kitty had these little knats buzzing around it.

Within a few minutes the Kang was surrounded and destroyed.

About that time everybody started shouting Noobe Noobe Noobe.

It was hiilarious.

Worst so far was this:

Zone into a KA already in "progress"

There are only two other ships.

One of which is some guy drifting around just occasionally shooting at random things.

With his mic open, volume at full, and apparently having quite the party in his apartment in a language I don't recognize.

I didn't stay...

Agreed.

Did KAS normal earlier, as it's was running as an 'extra loot' calender event, and I frequently do normals if am pressed for time (which doesn't always work out well!)

The line up was:

Odyssey rainbow beam boat
Fleet Escort rainbow beam boat
Vor'cha rainbow beam boat (have to say, first time I've seen this on a klink ship!)
Sovereign with antiproton beams and Tricolbalt torps
Myself - Sao Paulo class with antiproton cannons and MkXII quantum torps (MkXI aft)

Needless to say, the only two ships doing any real damage were the Sovereign, which had impressive DPS, and myself.

Honourable mention must go to the Fleet Escort too - he tried chasing two probes down, to prevent them reaching the vortex, but his pretty beams were doing next to nothing. The player in the Sovereign shot over to assist and, thankfully, did what the Fleet Escort couldn't. The sad thing is, I made sure to take occasional glances at what the ineffective FE was doing and he did the exact same thing with the next duo of probes that appeared - chased them, shooting his useless rainbow beams, until they were almost in reach of the vortex, until I bailed him out. I remained on probe control duty after that, although almost wished I hadn't, as think that the FE player might have realised how useless his ship was if some probes had gotten through.

What is it about these players? Honestly? I mean, how can these players not notice that their firepower is horribly underwhelming?!

This is the first time I've heard that. Wonder why the others left LOL.

Reminds me of the time someone thought it was a good idea to blast Imperial March on voice comms one time.

Bloody hell what was the point of VC if music was blaring through it LOL

LOL I'm not sure this 1 was my worst ... But it is the 1 that sticks out in my memory.... Me and a friend pugged a Kase run together we both went right leaving the rest of the team to go left ..... Well 2 min into it I noticed the other side had let a probe get thru and thought well crap there goes the optional ... anyway my teamate who was catching probes on our side noticed more of their probes getting close so darted off to help them and noticed not 1 of the 3 ppl over on other side was even watching the probes ... So he said something about it ... And the response he got back was it doesnt matter if the probes get thru .... We dont have enough DPS to stop them so we concentrating on the bigger stuff... LMFAO... 1st off Dont play Elite STF's if you arent gonna at least try for the optional ... 2nd off if you dont have enough DPS for the probes what in the hell do you really think your doing to the bigger stuff... lol
Target locked Captain....Alpha loaded....5,4,3,2,1.... Target dead captain, locking on next target
