Example: Newbie with no idea how to do STF presented with Two Options:
A: Que for Normal Mode
B: Que for Elite (and make sure not to listen to team chat)
They chose B every time.
I honestly am about ready to quit this game for good. I am getting so mad in STF's that the game is not longer fun. People do not listen. I'm in a small fleet and people are almost never online together, this should not preclude me from being able to do simple STF's.
With Space elites I can normally compensate and get bonus even with newbies and AFK'ers but this is not the same for ground. I have been trying to get Infected Ground done with Bonus in elite for ages now, it is the last one I need for Elite Commander.
PS. Why do these people also que without any re-modulators integrated?
Been there had it happen to me even to this day, so i feel your pain. Even though i am in a fairly large fleet, most of the time i had to run ground missions in pug groups. It took well over 300 attempts at that mission to complete its optional, with what was an awesome pug group that day. Hell i've even been in ground missions with 700+day vets that act like a complete newb, course some of them might have been lifers, but still when i see some1 who has all the aquired gear, and a 700+day vet status, and act as dumb as a complete newb. You sometimes got to wonder who is playing on the other end.

@jellico1: Nope, had the same experience with a random PUG - several times. Most of them where astonished themselves about how well it went.
But admittedly, these are rather rare occurances with a random PUG, the common experience is more along the lines of the original poster. What vexes me most is the strict adherance to not reading what is being written in team chat - or even sent via PM. I can understand that playing STFs is a learning experience - heck, I am far from knowing enough there myself - yet I for one want to know how I can get better at what I am doing. If only to display vastly superior attitude...
