On the ship injury topic; considerably more often then I would like I end up in a party with ships who treat injuries like Pokemon (IE: Have to collect them all). One noted individual I swear his injury bar stretched two inches into my play screen area.
I would really like to see something implemented like a message from starfleet that pops up "Sorry; your ship is not combat ready; please visit a shipyard and/or effect repairs before you can enter event "X"". if someone tries to enter a STF or other multi-player mission with multiple injuries.
Realistically (or as real as STO would get) I am quite sure one would not be allowed by starfleet command to fly repeatedly into combat situations with a ship hanging together by nothing more then stem bolts and wishful thinking.
Players intentionally crippling their teammates by always running with a ship with 10+ injuries on it does not impress me much.
i can tell for alot of you have never played wow and yall can talk about abused all day ppl leeching is abused to do most of you think sto is all lil kids because the way yall talk about abused so much yall make the sto player base sound that way
you know why i know it would not be abused because if GM here did there jobs and banned ppl who miss used it you think ppl would keep on few ya but think of this when you in zone chat and you piss some one off are you reported spaming all the time i could easyly report you spaming and you cant talk for up to 24 hours how is that for abused ?
