I jumped into an existing game in my Fleet Sao Paulo - heaven knows what had happened beforehand, but the first generator had, by the looks of things, been taken out immediately prior to my appearance. It looked like the 10% rule had gone out of the window and there were spheres all over the place. The optional only had approximately two minutes left on it.

Needless to say it didn't look good - the team appeared to consist of a rainbow-boat Regent, a rainbow boat (well, to be honest only phasers and Polaron) Star Cruiser, an Odyssey that seemed to flying around taking pot-shots at the Spheres, and a Dreadnought that, to it's credit, appeared to have pretty solid DPS and looked as if it was running itself ragged trying to keep the Spheres in check.

Anyway, I flew in to assist the Dreadnought, since it appeared to be the only ship managing decent DPS, and we mopped the spheres up fairly quickly, with the other ships alternating between what they probably considered to be 'lending a hand' and exploding. Needless to say, the optional failed in this time.

We killed off the last sphere, at which point the Star Cruiser bailed - I assume that he was either annoyed that the optional failed or just a loser. Possibly both. Sadly the Regent, upon seeing this, followed him moments later.

So with only three of us remaining we move onto the the transformers. With only three players left, myself and the Galaxy-X player admittedly asked each other if it was worth continuting. We decided that there was nothing to lose from trying, and we therefore did.

The Odyssey player should fly an Escort though - I wouldn't say he was useless as such, but hit and run isn't the best (in my opinion) use for an Odyssey. We killed the transformers - I reduced two to 10% and the Galaxy X did the same with the oposite two, and we then popped them as quickly as possible, subsequently blasting the generator with everything we had, weapons batteries utilised, phaser lance, HY torps and rapid fire cannon. The Odyssey actually made itself quite useful by shooting at the spheres which slowed them just enough for us to take the generator down literally seconds before the first nanite sphere got within range.

The rest of it was pretty routine, but I suppose that this leans more toward a good experience than a bad one, as we did at least manage to finish it with a three-person team, though a prototype drop rather than two measly EDC's would've been nice!
Was that Dreadnaught using TBR-I by any chance?

Yeah - fairly sure that he was.

CSE the other day took down all nanite probes center and helped kill guard spawn on right, then killed middle guard spawn solo when someone in a kitty carry explodes on left and begins to rage....

Baddie: 'why no one every help against guard spawns?!?'

So I kill the negvar spawn solo that kilt him and clean up nanites on left. Proceed to kill cube on left and center raptor spawns pretty much solo.

Baddie: 'NOOBS why you kill cube now we loose NOOBs there are still nanites up!!'

So I throw a tac team on Kang (side note why on earth do so few people do this it keeps his butt alive better than anything in the game) mop up raptors and finish middle cube and proceed to assist team in cleaning up the mess on right. Also at this point I notice the baddie can't CC for beans.

Me: 'we are fine stop raging and stop being a baddie'
Baddie: 'I know what i'm doing i've done this like 500 times how many times have you done it?'
Me: 'so you've done this 500 times and still can't kill a neg'var solo and wonder why I call you a baddie? LTP'
Baddie: 'no one can solo a negvar moron'
Me: 'I can. Did it twice this match in fact'

If you are not a top tier player, and by top tier you can check an old thread I made on the subject, shut the frak up and keep the rage to yourself.

Really pathetic thing is I was flying my quantium defiant at the time. Yes I solo neg'vars with a torp boat escort and I consider myself a player of 'average' skill who has no right to rage on his teammates in game.

Assorted comments by random trolls in STFs I've done:

"Sure whatever you say noob" (when I told him mrrmll is the most efficient)
"noobs you can't even kill her" (while trolly here refuses to fight donatra, no wonder it's going slowly, maybe cuz there's some cruisers here and he's got the BoP? Hm?)
"you guys suck especially you vaporak" (CSE, three people and this guy couldn't defend the Kang and I'm not sure why he's blaming me. I was happily killing the probes until I noticed how poorly they were doing)

Sadly, players like that are part of why this game has gone downhill. What is worse is that they are pandering to that sort of player by introducing new (time)ships for them to fly badly.

Oh joy, just wait to get into an STF and see three time ships with no power at all and a rainbow Odyssey. That's a good time to chew and swallow the leaver penalty.

I suspect that there'll be plenty of that.

I keep reading this thread for quite a while. Some of your stories sound really familiar, so I do feel your pain as my own. And finally, after today's run, I decided to post here as well.

Actually I'm a very tolerant and patient person, so I never rage out about any of the bad runs. There were plenty - the most stories would be repeated though, and I can't say I feel bad about them. The worst runs are usually the ones I've screwed up myself for whatever reason. (Lack of attention, daydreaming, sudden distraction - and pop it goes, the bloody gen...) I think we all had some runs like this. The one I've remembered the most was KA elite. I was working on a transformer, some klingon carrier was guarding the gate and helped me from time to time. So, all gens are popped, I'm happily blowing all of the cd's on the transformer.... And dpsing.... and dpsing.... and nothing comes... And than I the klink comes and starts dpsing the gen behind the transformer I haven't noticed. Well, he said nothing, and yet his silence was all saying. That must have been the most embarrassing run I've ever had. But not the worst one.

The worst one is probably the todays one. Infected Space Elite. I can't complain about the group - it was really good. We went through the instance and done the optional with some minutes left. I was going with my Tac captain on the Galor - I do enjoy playing "semi-support" classes like Tac cruisers and carriers. And than one of the sci's starts whining about all the horrible aggro he got on the Tac Cube, oh woe, those bloody Tacs are playing cruisers (there were two of us), and ain't able to hold the aggro! Those n00bs!.. Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but I DON'T WANT any aggro on my Tac. Neither my escort, nor my tac cruiser. I avoid it. One of the main reasons I'm not taking my Escort to the pugs anymore is the fact I start tanking just by entering any STF. Well, I can tank, for some time. Escorts are even crappier tanks than cruisers are dps boats. And yet it's rather stressing, so actually an opposite of why I'm coming to STF - to relax and to have some fun. And, to be completely honest, there were situations my sci got aggro in some insane dps teams popping Cubes like normal BoPs. And yet I've regarded it as my own fault and never came up with idea acting like an elitist spoiled brat and going forth insulting people. Actually I wanted to say that I'd gladly bring my Escort and do some high dps, but not in a team where a sci mourns and whines instead of healing properly. (Never seen him healing at all, it was me tossing heals around.) But than I thought the poo fight won't do me any good, so I didn't say anything.

Well... not all sci builds have heal. Some prefer things like Tyken's rift or Grav well.
HAIL HYDRA!
