I haven't even come close to a "bad" stf, seeing all these stories, but there are moments.


> Science flying a RSV in Infected Elite, fighting the Tac Cube and desperately trying to live, I finally look around for my support - 4 Odysseys with rainbow beams shooting the gate. I had had it, and we were already past the optional because abhorrable DPS and disregarding the 10% rule. I Evasived into them, the Cube followed. Killed 2 before the other 2 decided to rethink their priority targets.

All 4 of the other ships were oddys with technicolor rainbow beams, all 4 had accolade points under 3500 and all 4 were at the Kang shooting away at several BoP's.

I figured 4 ships, they could handle it. I said "HI" and flew on to the first cube. That's when I saw one node was gone.

I proceded to kill the other nodes and the first cube by myself.

That's when I figured there must have been someone else who knew how to do the STF who got fed up and bailed.

I flew on to the next cube. One of the nodes was dead there also. I started killing away and called in Fleet Support because none of the other ships were answering any hails.

This part is odd... My fleet support and the turret I had dropped were shooting at the cube, not the nodes and the cube blew up at the same time the last node blew up. I've never seen that happen before. I'm sure my CSVIII was hitting it too but I'd still never seen it happen before.

The other 4 ships are still pounding away at the kang and time ran out as i was flying to the last cube.

I killed the two raptors then started at the nodes. I also noted here that a couple of the nodes were gone.

After a couple minutes the cube died and I look back, the other 4 are still shooting away by the kang.

I flew to the kang and hailed it, the other 4 are well within hailing range but none of them could figure that out.

I clear out the remaining BoP's and Raptors and here comes the Carrier.

Low and behold, now there are 4 ships shooting the BoPs and TELLING EACh OTHER TO KILL THE BoP's FIRST! One ship flew off 70k. I guess he was scared.

Needless to say, I finished the Carrier by myself.

I could see why whoever I replaced had bailed.

The number of times I've found myself trying (and often failing) to fight off numerous Terran battleships singlehanded as a result of almost everyone else charging off to shoot at the Stadi......
I remember a problem I had with the Mirror Incursion event where first time I played it when the Stadi fell I was happy that I had gone without dying since I usually die at least once in PVEs. As I'm thinking this I'm flying away from the Stadi, since I was next to it when it was destroyed, and since I had full hull and 75% shield strength, as well as having transferred power to engines I figured that I would probably be out of range of the blast and if not I'd survive with at least 50% of my hull intact. But no, the Stadi and her crew had the last laugh and killed the final ship of the battle when she exploded, ripping through my shields and obliterating my hull as if the Stadi was a frag grenade and my ship was made of tissue paper. Last thing said by anyone in that match was "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?"

Completed The conduit...not elite...got 75 Omega marks(w/ bonus)...not during the reputation bonus. Completed The Conduit Elite(with bonus) and got 90 Omega marks.

Seriously 15 Omega Marks more for an elite during a bonus event???? I was getting 100+ marks during the bonus event previously.

Why were you going after the cube by yourself? 95% of all PuGs go for the gate first and stay out of range/LOS of the cube. It's the people who prioritize the cube in PuGs that are the actual problem.

Ah the days of trash talk. How I miss it. Every now and then there's still something good.

I think it was yesterday someone said,"There's not a ship here with more than 1000 accolade points. What a bunch of noobes."

My accolade is around 13,000 and it would be higher if I'd finish my nebula missions. I guess the guy didn't know how to check everyone's accolade.

Golly, the most I ever say these days is, "Four ships on the Kang and you lose the optional?"

Ahhhhh............. Cure Space Elite.

I hate CSE.

Example: After several miserable failers, I FOR ONCE got into a decent CSE PuG.... FOR ONCE. The team was well balanced, they all said "Hi," and the two escorts of the group had some decent DPS. So I was guarding the Kang by myself. The other four went off and killed probes. They had just finished the second group of probes (they went left, then right, and then they were going to the center) when suddenly, stupidity strikes again. One guy (We'll call him Bob) suddenly says "Hey guys... we should start killing cubez."
Everyone except for one other guy vehemently protests, and starts working on the center probes. Not to be deterred, Bob and that one other guy go and decide to kill the cube. After several deaths, they manage to succeed. Which causes hordes of bloodthirsty Raptors and Neg'vhars to spawn. To put it short, right after Bob and the other guy killed the cube, they were both ROFLPWNED by the Neg'vhars that spawned and even the concentrated efforts of the other two half competent players couldn't save the Kang.

And that was the last time I ever played CSE in a PuG.

Anyone else think its weird that there are no dev posts in this thread?
.....nothing more to say....(well it's now 1400, and grammar could use some help...but eh)
