There I was...

CSN...

Didn't have time to say HI, had to get something to drink.

Everything goes good, kill the cubes with almost 6 minutes to spare.

A Klink was protecting the Kang and the other four all ganged up on the cubes.

Even the Rainbow/Technicolor guy does OK. (Very Rare)

The Carrier dies quick and easy.

Everythings good and we gather the loot.

I type "GG"

The Klink says "GG, Are you kidding me?"

I say, 'Yep, even the technicolor guy did OK.'

The Klink says, "I was the one watching the ship."

I say, "So? It should only take one."

He pugs out...

I guess he though it should take 4 to protect the Kang. LOL

I don't bother looking at player profiles since S7 broke them and often the info there is either missing or incorrect. I don't really mind bailing out after a prolonged STF witn no end in sight.

broken1981 - when I say a T3, it means a regular (free) T3 tactical escort. I have T3 Sao Paolo, with a good equipment, in a good team and capable hands, it'll do fine(even the whole team can run those T3 escorts). But the problem here was in the device between the LCD display and the chair.
We were 4 to begin with. I couldn't help but notice that someone was dying way too frequently, and that's when i decidet to take a look at his ship. I mean, ISE could be done with 3 players, no question about it. But I'm a team player - I chose the right moment to GW the pack of spheres and SS them. If at least one player with good DPS is paying attention, the pack is gone within 15 seconds, but that wasn't the case. And most of the time, the problem is that the players don't pay attention to their surroundings and go do whatever they think is right.
For me it's obvious that when the pack starts moving toward us and someone GW them, you should ignore the two spheres warping out above the transformer and start shooting the pack, but that rarely happens.

All that said, I'm not some kind of exceptional player - my DPS is average at best. But I do something most of the player base doesn't - whenever I can, I point my camera to the teammates.

Almost all you guys complain about epic space fails. But my worst stf experience happened on the ground definitely.You have players with bad skills setups they don't use they kits, dont use any hypos or shield charges or whatever device, they dont use borg F remodulators or they use them but dont see or care if the borg have adapted, they dont use the chat, wont respond to private messages which makes that bip sound, they dont care what the group does they are in they own world totally without any skills of observation! And when this happens I usually call them trolls so then they partially react and there are three possible things that can happen:

1. so they know how to use the chat and the insults start
2. they are wrongfully provoked and and leave the game without a word
3. they keep on trolling LOL

Or I get reported to the GM, and I like the irony of that soo much

I dont need the optional, and I don't play stf because of that, all I wanna is to finish the game kill some mindless drones! But instead I'm trapped with mindless humans which don't know what teamwork is they just do they trololo......

This is not my "worst" but more to show the state of affairs..........

I answer PESTF for ISE, jump in, long story short, finish everything in time.....
Afterword one of the players jumps on the PESTF channel b****ing that their ship sucks....
(Spent a sizable amount of time dead, not fixing injuries)....so I say some smart-*** comment to the effect of "...fix your ship and you won't die so much.". Anyway I offer the person some advice, the individual is somewhat unreceptive. Then somewhere in the conversation I ask to see this person's load-out ...... 'ho boy......ALL torpedoes, and mines.....every. weapon. slot. Plus stuff like bio-function monitors.....to top it off it was all common too.....
So...after calmly explaining why you shouldn't do that the person was vaguely receptive. This individual was whining that the Shield Amp was 1 Mil EC, so I was feeling generous and tried to give this person some equip that I wasn't using......[ May or may not have been useful, this person could have burned it for all I care...]...they Refuse my Kindness.....ok......After a series of questions I determined that this individual has no clue how the game mechanics work, and what's worse didn't care to learn. I was just stunned, this person could not comprehend why running all torps and mines in an ESTF(any of 'em) is 'prolly not a good idea. The bizare thing was this person would type things that would indicate that this person knew better. This individual would act like a know-it-all then do/say something completely opposite of what an experienced player ought to know.......

This was from the PESTF Channel......this individual was running in Elite STFs........ with all common torps and mines......in all weapon slots......[I'll 'prolly get flamed by somebody saying "equipment isn't everything!!"...which in the right hands, ok, not the point.]....I just, I dunno...pffft....whatever......I 'prolly got trolled........

Don't feed the trolls! It makes them come back for more!

It's ok, I had a horrible CSE a few days ago. Was bored, so hopped on my Imperial on my Tac (yes, a tac in a cruiser, even though I have a fleet defiant... but hey, boredom is boredom XD), and joined up with a group on one of the STF channels. We enter the CSE, and I sigh as I see the team comp. All science captains (not a bad part), all of them in Odysseys (still not that bad). So I figure, eh, this will just take a while. We all head towards mid except for the guy on guard duty, who I am happy to see immediately chevron seps and starts heading towards the left BoPs. I am also happy to see him running a full single cannon-turret build. Sufficed to say, I safely ignore him for the rest of the match since he just slaughters everything.

But at mid cube... the first thing I see... is the other 3 hit BFAW. HERP. A. DERP. I just focus down the nanites one by one with my imperial, and then the insults start rolling in as they realize I am a tac captain. "Where's your escort, why you in a cruiser..." blah blah blah. I just ignore it and keep on shooting. First oddy drops literally seconds in. Apparently mama cube doesn't like being shot. She drops two of the Oddys before I manage to take down the bottom row, and then I take out one of the top row nanites and move into position to take out the Neggy. Oddy #3 has started it's BFAW stupidity again, and the Cube just kills it. The Neggy has de-cloaked at this point, and I am blasting it from the sides and rear, with FOMM and APA3 going. It drops in about 20 seconds, after which I then take down the raptor and finish off both the nanites. By now I noticed the cube was giving me a little more love than before, and I realized that the Oddys had ditched me and were attacking the left cube. So I finished off the nanites and moved over there, on fire and under attack, but still fine.

Meanwhile on Kang... yeah... nothing going on, the cannon Oddy is doing fine. Kudos to that guy.

At left... well as you can imagine, BFAW again, Oddys popping left and right... take out the nanites on bottom, and then one on top... and then the hilarity of watching all 3 Oddys destroyed by a single iso charge. Rinse and repeat... take out the Neggy and raptor (all 3 Oddys are dead at this point) and finish off the nanites, and start on the Cube. Drop it in about a minute (blew my APA3 and FOMM, so my overall damage output was lowered). I then head mid... and to my horror I see the 3 Oddys have respawned... AND ARE GOING RIGHT. I call the Kang Oddy over, and we manage to kill the 3 raptors in mid before they touch the Kang, and he rushes back over to right where the 3 morons are having trouble stopping the raptors coming from that direction. Then after the raptors drop, let the BFAW commence once more... I kill the mid cube, takes about 40 seconds (APA3 off cd), and head towards right as the Neggys spawn... and guess what... the morons don't fire on them, they keep on shooting at the nanites.

So it's just me and Kang guard firing on these Neggys, we drop them in about a minute and a half (that guy had pretty good DPS for a Sci-Cruiser), and meanwhile... yeah... in the space it took me to kill the cube, and it took for the two of us to down 3 Neggys... only one... ONE nanite has been destroyed. And two of the Oddys are already dead. So Kang Oddy and I down the last bottom nanites in literally SECONDS and take out a top nanite. Neggy spawns, decides it doesn't like me, hits me with an Iso charge which bounces and kills Oddy #3, and then I kill the Neggy. Kang Oddy kills off the raptor while I finish off the nanites, and then Kang Oddy drops a gravity well to stop the respawning Neggys from moving too far, then we finish off the last cube in the space of about 30 seconds (FOMM was off CD).

Meanwhile, the other two Oddys FINALLY respawn, and then they run over to kang and hail it. We get the opt with literally SECONDS left... (8 I believe), and then the carrier spawns. I get the amusement of watching them horribly time their BFAWs and the BoPs that spawn demolished all 3 of them at least once. Meanwhile myself and Kang Oddy were just pounding the carrier down. Took about 3 minutes, but the bugger finally dropped. After carrier go boom, I say "GG", and the mockery begins again. Should be noted, I never died, nor did Kang Oddy.

Later in the channel I saw the 3 stooges discussing their builds, and almost fell over laughing. They were running 8 beams each, and it was a rainbow technicolor mania. The hilarious part: all 3 were running the full Oddy set, and yet not once did I see a single aquarius nor a single chevron (other than Kang Oddy) that entire match. And it gets better: all of them were running the OPs Oddy and all of them were using power boosting consoles. And they had put each Uni console in it's area (I.E. Aquarius in a tac slot, Chevron in an engi slot, Bees in a sci slot). Sufficed to say, I was laughing for the next 10 minutes as they commented that Kang Oddy and I had been noobs and didn't know what we were doing.

Trolls? Possibly. Idiots? More likely.

estf channel is a joke. sorry to group all you guys but from what ive seen it deems true

man i did love your post tho. and this is what i see. the last run i did with elite stf jokers was i was with a fleet mate. they asked me if i ever did this before. ofc i said no im a ground stf guy. (had all 2 stf sets in my inv mk12 i might add) so i was using full borg. they were trying to explain infected elite and how it play out. i decided to troll them. well we blew up first small gate then went after the second small gate.

for what ever reason i have no clue my fleet mate on ts tell me look in team chat. lmao the 3 jokers started to try to abuse my sci catbox saying how much of a noob i am and i should stick to ground. lmao? i did get mad and said im carryingall 3 of you clowns. lol they could not stay alive. i was over working my healing. well these guys on escourts had et. wtf? so clown 1 decides to use et then gets assimilated. well i had to give up my only tt copy over and over to these jokers and my fleet mate had to cover me with his.

yeah we understand team play. well the jokers got me so mad at being called noob i flashed both mk12 space sets. so they told me i was carried and thats how i got them. well lets just say after that they never got a heal from me and all they saw was the respwn timer lol

Depends which channel. There are about a dozen of them. And I know a few that are jokes, and a few that are legit. Naturally if I go into a queue with guys from the joke channel, either I prepare to carry hard, or I prepare to fail. Regardless, I still have fun XD.

ahh ok, i thought there was just 1. the main one everyone goes on about. when i was with risa i would do it with thoes guys. but mostly i pug it. with FES all we mostly do is ground since each run takes around 6-7 mins tops. but we do space as well. speed runs tho would always be ground and the whole team uses swords.

even last room in infected we use swords. tho just watch out since you hack at the queen you can end up in the water from the lung part of it. but yeah being in FES has made me enjoy ground alot. i used to hate it and to be honest it used to be very hard. i was always a space person. and also using swords is very fun hahaha
