In space, stick with the majority, the Elite players WILL catch on and WILL adjust accordingly by sending someone else to handle more technical stuff. On the ground, stay in the back of the group and don't forget a remodulator.

Do this, and you'll start getting people to explain the 10% rule, or the 6KM radius, or even the assimilation triggers.

Don't do this by running ahead, nuking the transformers, forgetting the probes, or not packing a remodulator, and you'll end up like every other noob out there.
What about if I only play with people the same level as myself? After we've read the guides? Or are you going to tell me at this point I am touching the keyboard incorrectly? Probably so. Always seems to be something we're doing wrong and most of the Leet Doods are as rude as possible about informing us lowbies. Even good advice is couched in terms they'd never dare say to my face. And then they get mad when we hate back.

The only gear any ship or Away Team really needs is a competent Captain.

standard mk10 gear and t4 ships with a half decent bo layout is sufficient if you have a good strategy...

Then you shouldn't be sitting here whining about getting yelled at. Practice the strategy in Normal, once you get the hang of it, take it to Elite. Stick to the guide, and if someone says something, they're not saying it at you. There are 3 other people (you + player + 3 others) that they could be yelling at.

Again, stick to the plan, get some Mk 10 gear, learn the role of your ship, follow the specialization guide so you don't waste spec points, and you won't be the one they're yelling at. That doesn't necessarily mean they won't yell, but it won't be at you.

No. I'm intelligent enough not to have tried in the first place. On subject, though, my advice to those that are unsure is to not bother. STFs aren't worth doing in the first place. Yes I've done them at least once a piece, no I don't consider any of them worth doing more than that.

It's a pointless and wasteful gear treadmill and you're better served finding something else in the game to do.
A half faction is no faction at all.

You don't need to remodulate a sword
(seriously someone was screaming at me "remodulate , remodulate" I was fighting with a SWORD and it was him whose weapon was not effecting the borg)

Everyone is getting way too "cube" focused methink.

The other day i was in a PUG and it was doing very very well with several 700 days vets (not a proof of anything i know but at least gives hope) and only 1 skittle boat. Edit : and no one with injury !! Hurray !!

1 guy went left, the rest went middle/right (including skittle) to clear BOPS and those 4 with ok DPS then proceeded to fast clean probes.
We then killed right cube in a pure MRRMLL fashion and the guy alone on left side went shouting "idiot ! who killed the cube ? blablabla".
So, being who i am and while we were fast sweeping raptors + moving to 2nd cube, i politely sent this maverick guy all alone on his left side all my regards with love, and of course he went ballistic.
Finally we got the optional with 5 mins spare and the guy sulking/cursing + giving more idiots away.

And you know what ?
The guy had the balls to send me a tell when back on DS9 saying "even idiots have luck" then logged off before i could answer.

yep, that hurts. once had a guy in an escort bad mouthing the whole team (granted, we had two rainbow fart failboats onboard) in ise, and called us all nobbs and said it was a waste of time even though we got the optional with 3 mins to spare
thats why i wanted the ignore list thing put in place- then, you could have simply ignored the up tight *** in question, and would have never seen him/her again.
