Welcome to online video games. This type of behavior is not exclusive to STO and in fact is much worse in many other games.

3 doesn't bother me in the least. It's PvP. Goading the enemy into making mistakes is a valid tactic.

2 always kind of makes me chuckle. Nothing screams a complete lack of understanding of the game like some of the things that come out of number 2.

1...1... yeah, I've had to apologize for my reaction to number 1 a few times.

1. The braggers. The ones who will constantly brag that their the best, but in reality have no skill whatsoever. Examples are people who use exclusivly p2w stuff to win, or use cheap tactics.

2. The accusers. There are always those who accuse X person of cheating. Unfortuantly many hasnt grasped all the abilties and skills one has at its disposal and gets carried away when ones ship goes bom very easy.

3. The smacktalkers. The ones who flames and tries to trigger from others a quarrel or flamefest. Never good, and never ends good. These are pherhaps the ones i despise the most, and if i could without breaking the EULA would makes a name and shame list of.
On the otherhand there must be a fine line between friendly banter and downright hostility.


Offcourse everything one needs to do is simply ignore, but this is a growing problem. So what are peoples thoughts on this?
Define 'cheap' tactics. For example, there are Feddies who would probably make the argument that decloak-alphastriking (a tactic that myself and other BoP and Raptor pilots make an art of) is a 'cheap' or 'dirty' trick. . .when it really is all about timing skill and knowing when to attack. Others like to 'mention' that they got focused on by 3-5 attackers (these claimants are usually zombie cruisers, in my experience) insinuating it was 'unfair' or 'cowardly'.

So please. . .clarify.

Ha. I've used fireworks in a Cap n Hold after defending a base solo vs. 3 Klinks. They had me down to 20% hull, I popped Go Down Fighting and RSP and killed them all shortly after. Sometimes you just gotta celebrate

Ill take some past cheap tactics like VM+SNB, FBP+RSP and chain PSW someone to death.
These days all it takes is one escort with a sci captain, sub nuke the poor player, and sci team is likely spent. Then grav pulse and pew him down as he is helpless to do anything. Cheap and skilless.

As for the decloaking alpha strikes one can ask if its balanced for one player to destroy a ship in such an "easy" fashion. Its as mindless and unfun as tric mining someone to death or using the sub nuke doff for an easy and cheap win.

But i guess the cloak is the klinks prerogative, but mostly a gimmicky thing. Sure its useful as heck in kerrat and cap`n holds, where alot is going on and the victim cant always be aware that a sneaky bop or raptor is ready to alpha the poor ship down. But then again these players would seldom or NEVER set foot in arena pvp, cause cloak is useless and hence the alpha strike neutralized. But then said klinks will only resort to another cheap tactic called an energy drain team build. Oh what lengths, espeically those payed for, people are wiling to go to for the sake of winning


Clarified enough?
