he didnt get more, because he pulled no aggro at all (really, the combatlog indicates he didnt die, AND he hadnt applied ANY heals to his ship)

there is a raptor, a star cruiser, and another vesta. we kill the cube fairly fast, then move to the transformer. injury guy ignores the cube goes for the generator. we kill the cube, I take a generator, and hope he wont blow his. my fear was unjustified, by the time I got to 10% he could work down his gen to 65% (though we had others at 80 too...). so I help in, we barely destroy the transformer.
at this point I see that the only help is the raptor, the rest are in beamboats (well, I think the Vesta was flying the base setup with transphasics, but I suspect with high aux power, so he wasnt any help either).

basically from that point I and the raptor suffer from the incoming dmg (so we die pretty much at the same time, which means basically no dps is applied while we are in respawn oblivion).
we suffer through the game, by the end I was the onlyone who healed his ship, even the raptor has two injuries, guess he ran out of repair kits. the star cruiser now at 7 or 8 injuries, and the vesta has 4 too.

in the end it took us 20 minutes to finish, and the star cruiser and injury guy didnt even jump the 1000 dps mark (well, they barely jumped 500 dps).
Tac Officer in a Patrol Escort? Injury Laden? Yeah, I know who that is. Last time I saw him though he was in an Advanced Escort, but only had 28 injuries.

That was very... informative?
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.

I just want to say that spending even a few points on Threat Control when you already draw 100% mob aggro is a recipe for concentrated pain. It's honestly the closest STO's PvE will get to a challenge mode.

Thanks for the elaborate and entirely relevant input, one-post. I'm sure your thoughtful comments will be taken into consideration and are BOUND to get the Dev's to pay attention.

It won't be the sort of attention you were probably hoping for, but nonetheless....

Well, Will, that was a very good way to make a first impression.

# 1246 Chat?

Chat works great here, both Voice and text and on all 7 computers too! Middleschoolers... Phewy.

It's kinda like the people who get disconnected alot, have lag, or lots of studder. They will INSTANTLY blame the game without checking the forums or the support area for any remedy, diagnostics or suggestions.

www.canyourunit.com just to see if your computer can handle the pressure.

The problem with chat, which has been brought up MANY times in this thread is all too often people don't have it turned on, don't speak the same language, or just miss what's going on while tied up in the action. It can also be more than many people to handle when they are trying to fight a battle and engage in a conversation. Something to do with walking and chewing gum at the same time.

Recently, I've noticed more and more people actually RESPONDING when I say 'HI' in the chat window at the beginning of a match.

That' a good thing....

ummm... when you pull 100% aggro then spending points to threat control will actually help you improve...

PUG on Khitomer space last night. I take left side and kill the Probes while everyone else goes right, and after a minute this Patrol Escort comes over and starts attacking generators, then goes after the next set of Probes that spawns and practically instagibs them with CRF/TS so I shrug and join the rest of the people on the right side. Good thing I did because the guy in the beamboat Escort that was on Probe duty on the right couldn't handle them, and I finished off the last 2 before they hit the portal. I kill the next set of Probes too, then notice the guy in the Escort that had taken over the left side had wandered over to the right so I hit evasive and zoom over toward the portal just in time to see 3 Probes going through it from the left. "So much for the optional" I thought. I went back to the left side to do Probe duty since the guy in the Patrol Escort abandoned it, and the beamboat Escort is still unable to handle the Probes from the right and nobody would help him, so eventually we failed because I couldn't watch both sides at the same time and the people on the right were either ignoring the Probes (Patrol Escort) useless (beamboat Escort) or somehow dying constantly (everyone else).

And this was on normal, not elite.

It's hard to pinpoint the single worst STF I've had.... there have been so many...

There was the Cure Space Elite where everyone thought "fly in circles and shoot stuff at random while ignoring the Kang" was a great strategy. Or the many that we asked "Don't kill the cube yet... "Sorry I can't hear you I'm busy killing this cube."

Or the Infected Ground Elite where one guy incessantly charged through every trigger point, then insisted on setting up turrets in the final room over and over after being asked not to, then quit.....

Or the KSE where it took 45 minutes to put down Donatra because no one had any decent equipment or DPS...


Or the KSE where one douchebag felt it was his god-given right to order everyone around, and insulted anyone who didn't listen. I had fun with him. I put all my power in shields and engine and buzzed Donatra until she cloaked, then went out of range. For 30 minutes. I thought his head would explode. "I'm a gold member and I'll get you banned!" he said. Yea I'm equipped with A-hole corbamite. I amplify and reflect it back at them....

And there was last nights KSE, or whatever they call it now. One guy shows up in a Galaxy-X with 47 injuries ( I counted) and sat at the spawn point the entire time. Luckily we had 2 escorts with really good DPS and were able to pull it off.

There were many that went textbook perfect, but many, many more that went horribly wrong.

Completely off topic, but I'm gonna say it anyways. I LOVE THIS THREAD!!!!
