possible better answer

if a person does not do a % of damage total/heal total proportional to his or her rank

(VA minimum 20% of total , lt 1% of total)
they get NO fleet marks

Ok say this was put in. It wouldn't be limited to Fleet events it would also be put in for STF's. So you die and get a 90 second respawn timer. Before the respawn timer counts down you have been kicked for being AFK. No thanks. and good luck finding people to run STF's with.

no, no no..... it wouldn't count time spend waiting to respawn, but would start counting when the respawn timer ran down.

In an ideal world, it could be programmed to ignore time spent respawning.

Of coures in an ideal world, people wouldn't leech, afk, be rubbish at the game, leave the instance because they don't like their team-mates etc.

heh...now I know why there were only four of us-me and three low-rankers the other night in a Fleet action that has a minimum of 5...

BTW, we had a grand time, but losing that fifth ship before the fight even started didn't help matters.

the point of PUGging isn't fleet marks, or Dilithium or Drops, it's PLAYING the GAME...at one point, YOU were a Lt. or a Cdr., or a Capt., at one point, some elitist douche probably whined about YOU being underfoot.

You don't like the random nature of PUGs with no control over what "quality" (and I use the term LOOSELY) your team is? Fine, if you can find five people who will hang with you, you should run as a team, or stick to Private instances, or rank-limited events-where you can be among your Peers (if they'll have you.)

The real test of skill isn't having everything under ideal circumstances, it's adapting to difficulties and still triumphing. if you can't handle a Starbase Incursion, Starbase Defense, Blockade, or other Fleet-mark event without being surrounded by only L50 or better armed out with bleeding edge STF gear, you're not the top dog you THINK you are.

I'll take a Lt. Jr Grade in a Miranda over a guy like you on my team any day, under any circumstances-because said LTJG is a hell of a lot more likely to at least TRY to contribute, instead of whining and stomping off.

This person is exactly why we dont need a vote kick in the game... making a song and dance about a few lowbies being in with you,and then exhibiting immature behaviour, he or she penalizes everybody.

Way to go

Sheesh, people. If they let low levels into stf's, I would rage too. And don't give me that 'i was a lt. Once' crap. My klingon leveled using only 3 missions, doffs, and kerrat in less than two weeks. You can get a fed to lvl 50 in under a week without ever toouching fa's. However, I still adamantly protest against votekicks, as it would give leechers and trolls, as well as the elitist types the same power as normal people.
When in doubt, (hehe) c4!

STFs are different. Fleet events are open to all members of fleets level 2 and up. STFs are only available to level 45 and up (normal, don't remember when elite unlocks).

Level isn't all that counts, however. I ran a normal Infected Space earlier today with four VA's that kept shooting at the transformer before the generators were down and at the gate before we took down the other transformer.
