Repairing facilities counts for you towards first place ranking. Confirmed by dev (can;t place the post ATM, but definitely read it)

I appologize folks I meant to write Minetrap and somehow messed it up. I posted it 1st thing this morning while I was getting ready for work, I was in a hurry didnt catch the mistake. Anyway the AFK'ers really mess up the match by sabotaging the team efforts. I can usually cover 2 buildings by myself with my Klink toon but not all 4 and it makes it very difficult to escort the civvies to the extraction point when you're down 2 people because theyre AFK. You're usually down a person or 2 anyway because they leave their assigned area.

# 13 Minetrap Leeches

Ok folks this is what I initially intended as the title for my post and what I wished to discuss. Unfortunately I typed "Minefield" rather than "Minetrap", GaH! Anyway I learned I should never start a post first thing in the morning before at least having one cup of coffee.

There has been a big problem with folks zoning into the Minetrap map then going AFK for the entire match. And its getting to be more and more that are doing this making it difficult if not impossible to complete the mission parameters for the match. I don't know what can be done to curb this anti-social behavior but Cryptic needs to fix it.

Yes the Romulan Mine Trap mission seems to be the favorite mission for leechers. Usually their is at least 1 leecher in the mission but most of the time their are multiple leechers making it nearly impossible to save enough Romulans for the accolade. Also with some bulding being bugged that they cant be reinforced doesn't help either.

These people piss me off!

There is one fleet also that seems to spawn in 2-3 in a group then run off to another zone.. every time... no matter what I say lol.

Had two of them in my group 2 days ago, along with one AFK guy that left his loading screen up.. so it looks like hes having problems.. that miraculously fix themselves 5 mins before the mission ends.

So yeah, it was me and one other guy. So I sat my klingon butt down and waited for the mission to end ( after trying to save the romulans/buildings with 1 guy) . I did inform the zone of the problem so they did not expect my area to accomplish anything.

Cryptic really needs to put in some sort of mechanic that makes you do something to earn the points.

I have to share the thing I learned to do to relieve frustration on the leeches. During the part where you tell the Rommies to go home wait for one of them to morph into a salt vampire then lead them over to the leech, they'll follow you like a faithful dog. Once by the leech wait for ole salty to confuse you then fire on the leech.

I buff up my tac Klingon then unleash hell, depending on how long the confuse lasts you can do a lot of dmg to the leech or kill them. I killed one leech 3 times, made them so mad they left the game. It won't make them stop but it sure feels good and relieves tension.

The one time where friendly fire in-game is both technically possible and justified.
