# 1 Post Your Best STF Experience
07-27-2012, 06:50 AM
I've seen the popular "post your worst STF experience" so I thought I'd make this thread so you can post your best. I guess mine would have to be yesterday. I was playing IGE with a fairly good team, blasted through the Borg neatly and without dying too much, and I finally got my prototype PSG, after just one match that day, and I haven't been grinding it much.

Good move posting this thread!

I posted this one a little while ago in the 'worst stf' thread, but since it's more relevant here:


Played Cure Space on normal this morning - was myself, in my MVAE, a Bortas, a Galaxy-X , a Fleet Escort and an Odyssey.

Probably one of, if not THE, best STF I've played - the team just... worked. We barely even communicated beyond the occasional update.

Anyway, myself and the Fleet Escort took to defending the Kang, and blasted the snot out of the BOP's (we were both using Tetryon cannons, so their shields were melting in no-time) before they got anywhere near the Kang. Everyone else took the generators down, subsequently providing crowd control when the Raptors spawned. And the cubes were not taken down before the other team members had established that myself and the fleet escort had mopped up the BOP's etc.

The Negh' Var spawns proved a little more troublesome and the Kang took a few hits from Raptors that slipped past whilst the Fleet Escort and myself were busy with the Negh' Var's, but the Odyssey, Galaxy-X and Bortas dealt with those, and the Kang never dropped below 94%.

Optional passed, Mission passed - two EDC's obtained. Me =

Honestly, I almost wish I had friended that group - would have been good to have formed a small fleet.

Another ?best? was one I did literally minutes before season five came to an end.

CSE - the mission stated with approximately 12 minutes to spare before the seven-hour sever downtime. First Cube went down in about 30 seconds, 10% rule observed though; a player in a very tanky Sovereign killed the first above-generator cube whilst we were working on the transformers/generator. This resulted in both sets of transformers and generators having rather short lives, we popped the gate and Tactical cube and received a fairly decent loot. All finished three minutes before the downtime commenced!

Well let's see...


IGE: Optional completed with 4 minutes left on the clock.

KAGE: Optional completed with 5:46 left on the clock (new version, not old).

CGE: Optional completed with 3:48 left on the clock.

Other CGE: Soloed Armek on my Ferasan Engineer.

ISE: Optional completed with 6:47 left on the clock.

KASE: Never have had a great one.

CSE: See KASE.


Good learning experience: Horrible but talkative team in KAGE with 4 people because 1 was DCed. Got to do the room for the first time since it was obviously a throw-away, and now I do it almost every KAGE and love it.

CSE? Sounds like ISE.

Well, I generally have te best STFs when I do ISE using EliteSTF channel. We can finish with the optional with plenty of time left on the clock, and no one pops a generator until I say go. So there have been plenty of great STFs.

Excluding missions I've done with people I know which generally go well.

I signed up for an EliteSTF IGE group a couple of weeks back. Now whilst there has been some complaints about the quality of that channel, I've personally never gotten a fail group from it. But at the same time, 5 players who've not played with each other is still 5 players who've not played with each other, even if they know how to do the mission. It doesn't always go perfectly.

This run though, was clockwork. It wasn't even partly pre-grouped, it was made completely from within the channel, and I hadn't played with any of them before so much as once. Yet the run was basically perfect. Optional with about 3 minutes left, and Rebecca killed with no Tac Done respawn.
