I think more pugs fail Cure than any of the others (except Hive, ofc). I have gotten to where I dont like doing it.

Next is Infected.

I don't really care for Kitimer (spelling). A bad pug can take forever and the winnings aren't worth the time. I usually only do it with fleet.
I usually go Infected and vortex because i probably have the worst luck with PUG/Cure combo.

In the event I ever pug, I always go KASE, just to see how fail people can be. I once had a match where 3 guys were going at this cube and just couldn't kill it. The tac cube took 10 minutes to kill, we missed the opt, and donatra... well let's just say she had a field day.

Which is why I go KASE. For the laughs it never fails to give.
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.

It was quite pitiful. And that was what made it hilarious, especially because I can destroy a regular cube in under 10 seconds with most of my toons (cept my fed engi in a cruiser, that takes a little longer, usually 30-40 depending on crits). Last night I actually killed one in a single pass with my Chel'gret on my KDF tac toon. Was highly amusing. Did it without tricobalts too.

It is actually quite surprising how many fail players are in STFs.

Since April of last year, when my first character hit VA, I was running CSE constantly (PUGs, of course, like the idiot I was) to get that accolade. Finally, I'm fed up, and went to the PublicEliteSTF channel and got a CSE group.

First try on CSE with a group from that channel = Optional.
Ten months of constant PUGs on CSE = Optional always failed.

Tells ya something. And I even got compliments from the rest of the team for buffing and healing them as a cruiser.

IMO: Season 9 was the best season, Devs were right to focus on bugfixing. Roll back Delta Rising to that.

I like KSE. I can solo one side, so unless a PUG really suck they can take out the other. Usually I tell them I'll take the probes on one side so they should all work on the other.

I've two-manned CSE before, so I decided to see how far I could get solo. I'm running a fleet tactical escort retrofit with fleet DHCs and turrets.

So I go into it, and everyone warps out. I head off and kill the first round of spawns, take out a lower nanite on the left, then rush back and kill the next round of spawns. Basically I did this for the nine bottom probes. Then of course, I have to destroy a top one and release the negh'var and raptor. I do that, rush to kill the BoP spawns, but the negh'var is too much and it kills me. After another death the Kang's gone. I knew that was going to happen, but still for being solo I think I went pretty far.

In terms of how a normal CSE goes, that was a hideous failure. (but normal has five people, not one)
