# 1021 Miserable day

Today was awfull. My fleet only had about 100 points to go to get over the last hump on the star base tier 1. I thought no problem, I could do that in three or four fleet grinds.

Yea, right.

Eight losses later I still hadn't earned enough points to get us over the top.

I gave up and saw later that one of the other fleet members had finished the job.

I do so despise rainbow warriors.

For fleet marks i prefer Incurshion and colony, they're pretty reliable in giving decent amounts even with major team screw ups, you just won't kill much in phase 2 or 3.

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.

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.
10% fonctions like a charm espiecally with PUG's. Your methods only works on normal or with Premade which has enough CC Abilitys.


I had good, mediocre and really worse ESTF's:

CSE. A Gal Retrofit told us he would defend Kang. He was even unable to kill a SINGLE Bird of Prey

The other 3 split and everyone tried to destroy the probes on his own.
After 5minutes they still didn't more than 2 probes because they were sitting at 9,99km and shooting at the probes -.-

After a lot of hassle with the BoP's, Neghvars etc I destroyed right cube, middle cube (annonced the kill to get them time to prepare for the raptors on Teamchat), turn to the kang and see 9 raptors over the kang and 4 players who didn't managed to kill a single raptor ...

Kang got destroyed and I hopefully never see that player again :-P

I guess I need to remind people that the only way we can allow this thread to continue to run is if it doesn't create a problem.

Calling out "bad players" by name is one of the things that will cause moderation and could lead to closing the thread. Please don't do this.

Thanks!

Besides that, a bad player today might be a good player tomorrow. I've seen many times people who come in with trashy mouths or run and hide 30K away who later do an STF perfectly. It's a mater of listening, watching and learning.

We were all Noobes once!

I tried Rainbow/Tecnicolor beams myself when I first started playing. That was over three years ago. LOL

# 1028 Bad Cold!

There I was...

Infected Space Elite.

I pugged in and said, 'Hi' as usual.

I got some rare replies.

Good Start????

Now I have this miserable cold, sneezing, caughing and gagging... Eeeewwww....

Everybody agrees on the 10% rule as we are killing the entry group.

Yippeee.....

We fly over to the left and kill the cube, I buzz over to the back side and bring a node down to about 12%

We're all waiting for one other node to drop down and what happens???

I sneeze....

Somewhere in the throws and convulsions of the sneeze I hit the fire button.

I killed my node while the one we are waiting for is still at about 50%.

A couple people say nasty things to me and I try to explain that I sneezed.

Aside from that incident all went well.

Everyone told me next time keep my hand away from the fire button if I need to sneeze.

(I though it was pretty funny myself....)

Autsch xD

Infected: I ask for 10% rule twice! And everybody answers and agrees .

And then IT happened: I got distracted coupled with an good crit and my generator exploded first and of course to soon -.-

The group was luckily good enough to compensate for my stupid error

I know, I didn't want to name and shame a player. But I thought the combination of the ships name and his incapacity of taking down even a single Bird of Prey was funny And the ships name can changend at any time.

But they are noobs and new players.
