There I was.

I pugged into a CSN.

Somebody said 'Hi'

I went into shock and fell out of my chair.

I got back up, said 'Hi' back and flew to the right.

I hear someone on voice chat saying we were all weak noobes..

I check his stats, his accolade was about 1800.

He goes on cussing that we were all doing the mission wrong and to follow him.

Follow him where?

I just typed, 'oh goody, one of those.'

He starts calling me noobe.

I typed 'compare my stats to yours. If you want to go head to head message me after the match.'

He just flew off about 50k and pouted.

We won with just four ships with lots of time to spare.

He never messages me. LOL.

Sounds like someone botched the optional followed by a Full-team ragequit.

I'd have soloed the rest of it just for laughs...

There is was.....

ISN

I pugged in, said, 'hi'

No response.

There were three oddys with technicolor/rainbow beams and a Klink.

We clear the first group, two oddys die.

We all go left except the Klink who goes right.

He starts hollering about how dumb the Feds are and starts in on whatever he can to bring out the probes and spheres.

Then he bails.

The three oddys are to weak to do much damage and none of them understand that you need to keep the nodes from healing the gen.

One oddy keeps getting further and further away while trying to kill a sphere.

Two oddys are firing at gen without killing the nodes.

For some wired reason one of the two decides to go to over to the right side.

The right side was swarmed with spheres and nodes.

I tried and tried to tell them to kill the nodes but it didn't work so I flew in and killed them.

After a few minutes of this I just gave up and left.

In this particular case the Klingon was correct.

I have a new one. It was an ISE. So here we are, a nice 5 man team, 4 KDF and me, the lone fed. So we absolutely SLAUGHTER the starting patrols, and I mean dead in under a minute. So I am thinking "Oh good, high dps team, we're good to go." We demolish the left side in under 2 minutes, and then kill off the nanites and spheres also under 2 minutes. We then take out the left side, same thing. Here is where the fun starts.

So I see on team chat: "ok guys, remember the plan, split up and kill em both at the same time."

My brain literally stops when I see that. Then I start laughing, because these 4 idiot klingons (I guess in the defense of the klingons, two of these guys were orion males (WHY?????) and there was a gorn and klingon male) then split up. And start attacking both the gate and tac cube. I decide to pity them and help, but with the focused fire of the cube and gateway (which the two were focusing fire, kinda scary tbh) they just melted these 4 (which were flying a mix of raptors and bcs) and then started on me. I was in my tac oddy with saucer still attached, so I was on full defensive. I start just tanking both of them healing like a madman etc, praying that these 4 klinks would grow a brain and attack only one, but guuuess what... repeat. I try to keep aggro, but holding aggro from both... not happening. Sufficed to say, these 4 die a good 4 or 5 times before they finally call me a stupid fed noob for not following the plan, and then leave.

Um... why? Hell if I know. So I just proceeded to solo the tac cube AWAY from the gate, and then after healing up kill the gate. Takes about 20 minutes (beam arrays are not known for their damage output lol). But seriously??? SPLIT UP??? Wtf were these guys smoking? Or was their blood wine a little older then they thought??? Sufficed to say, I got a good laugh out of it. And the icing on the cake was I got a Proto Shield tech from it too
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

Just discovered this thread. The moral of this story is Karma does wait to get you

I'd been swapping between my Klingon and my fed to do STF's in a rolling block all night, lots of good teams (Cure for example with 7 minutes left on the optional). Then Karma decides I've had enough fun. I was in my fed, flying my brand new Chimera. Its lucky I was, and he was a tactical

So I hope into one STF (I forget its name, but its the one with the time portal). There's two of us in escorts, and three crusiers.

After 10 minutes and me holding a gate on my own, and asking the others to do stuff like either stop a probe or go help the otehr escort. The other escort whom seemed comptent decides he's had enough and bails

So there's me, and 4 rainbow warrior crsuiers.

We did actaully manage the mission... it just took an hour and a half, of cosntant clicking of powers and concetrating on the game. When the drednought appeared she came after me, and me alone.
I was utterly burnt out on STF's for the rest of the night.

I went into a fleet event today. There were 2 escorts, 1 heavy cruiser, an excelsior and me in my oddy

Everything was going great, all the levels went very fast, everything was fantastic. All the players were coordinating just great. It seemed like we were all focussing on one ship at a time and killing it quick. It was great to watch the Klingon ships just melt away under our fire. I thought we had it made.

Then the last group came out. It was like everyone forgot how to fly. People were just shooting at anything that moved. There was no coordination of any kind.

We lost the final battle with two ships left over. It was embarrassing.

It was a few weeks back, me in my star cruiser doing KASE. The first cube went down a little slower than expected, but hey, it's not a big deal. Me and an escort went to the right and the other 3 went to the left. I positioned myself for a probe duty (meanwhile taking care of the cube above the transformer which was next to me) and the other guy (in the escort) went on the far side to take care of the cube and the transformer. As mentioned, I destroyed the cube and started working on the transformer (while still wiping the probes) and after a while I noticed, that the far side cube is wandering into the middle of the map (and the escort guy "puf"-ing time after time). I guess for some reason his weapon power was at 50 or something like that, so I went out of my way and helped him kill the cube. Finally, the two of us brought down the transformers and the gate and went to help the other 3 (I've no idea what they've been doing, but the gate was still up). After a good 50 minutes, we got to fight Donatra. After 10 more minutes, seeing that she was at 97% health and shields at max, I decided that I had enough - I told the others that I'm fed-up and I'm leaving the map. And so I did.
Something more recent - last night at CSE, there was something that really annoyed me - a klink in a carrier standing right above the Kang and being next to useless - couldn't kill even two BOPs. I had to do the guarding for him, but other than that, everything went as planned though we didn't make the optional.

On the side note, there are really awesome PuGs - a team of four in KASE, 3 german guys and me. All the transformers and gates went down in 12 minutes flat. Of course, not with my star cruiser, but with my FAE.

And please, be nice and answer in the chat when being asked a question - it's very helpful to know what the person next to you is thinking of doing.

To be honest, whilst I am NOT saying that this is a good idea, or particularly effective, ISE can sometimes leave you with little choice but to combat the Tac cube and gate at the same time.

I've played a few instances where, whilst attacking the gate, the Tac cube has taken offense and reached firing range itself, in which case you are presented with little choice other than to have at least some of the team combat the cube. Whilst not ideal, this does present a small advantage if the player(s) concentrating on the cube have decent DPS they can at least ruin the cubes shields, making it easier to kill after the gate is gone, when the rest of the team are able to focus on it.

I believe it is Infected space. (The one with the gateways)
Whenever I run into the people that say "Only drop the nanogenerators to 10% so we can get the bonus!"
Out of all the times I've seen people attempt that strategy, It's never worked. we ether end up running out of time, or the main generator gets swarmed by spheres which heal it, failing the mission.

I instead choose to steamroll the map. Everyone use full power to take down the nanogenerators as fast as possible, while diverting a person to be a decoy for the incoming spheres while the rest take down the gate.
Out of all the times I've done this, it only failed once: Because we had someone on the team trying to do the 10% way.
