While I'm not questioning his story, I still agree that the screenshot isn't proof of anything. Showing those logs in the screenshot, would also show that he really did get killed by the cube. For all we know it could have from spheres firing from within 10 km, but outside the camera-angle, or a stack of plasma-fire slowly ticking down...

In today's bad STF Experiance (so far) A character with a female tactical catian who's only interaction in team chat was "..." (which I assume is some sort of command to do something in their mind) sat back the entire match of KAGE never directly engaging in combat, using security teams and quantum shadows to engage the borg went off on a tangent about how me and the other 'newbies' needed to stay to normal STFs after we got wiped by on the last couple of heavy Tac's.

They were clearly a much better player what with them being 30 meters back and around a corner not doing anything. I should be shamed for not using their magnificent tactics.

We have nothing. Nothing but our anger. We will take that spark and start a fire which will become a great conflagration!

The most annoying thing about ground stf is that even if you tell people there is a flank damage bonus, which is very useful to kill even the most overpowered elite npc in a matter of seconds... They still wander off and each kill one target at a time ... Or if their shield is low, they don't take cover . Focus fire and dodge when the screen glows red, GOD!!!

Worst bunch I've seen in a few days.

There I was.

I had just selected CSN.

Countdown was to 5 seconds.

Power goes out.

The game dropped but I'm on a battery backup so the computer and internet didn't.

I grab a glass of Dr Pepper.

I reboot STO and figure I'm not going to be in a game so I let it verify the files.

This takes a few minutes.

The game boots and low and behold, I'm in the CSN.

Six minutes of the STF have gone by.

I see four ships at the Kang.

I think 'Oh Goody.'

I fly right and none of the nodes had been touched.

I start killing nodes.

Now all four of the other ships come to the cube and start shooting.

Three have Rainbow/Technicolor beams and one has Skittles.

I think, 'Oh Goody.'

I see the Kang is swarmed.

I fly in and kill all the Borg and send the Kang a heal.

The Kang is at 79%.

I fly back and continue on the first cube.

All four of the other ships follow a BOP back to the Kang.

First cube dies and I fly to cube two.

One of the nodes is already dead.

I kill the others with no help and start on the cube.

Time is down to 5 minutes.

All four of the other ships show up and start on the cube.

The Kang is again swarmed so I fly back and kill the borg.

I heal the Kang and fly back to the Cube.

I kill the cube.

All four of the other ships follow a Raptor back to the Kang.

I fly to Cube 3.

We're down to just under 3 minutes.

All four of the other ships are working on the spawn from Cube 3.

I get the cube down to 3 nodes and holler, 'A Little Help Here!'

No responce.

All four are chacing the Borg Spawn which is nowhere near the Kang.

We're down to 1 minute and I say, 'HELP AT THE CUBE!'

No responce.

I can't save the optional, out of time.

I kill the cube and hail the Kang.

All four are still working on the two Warships.

I type, 'If you don't know what the Priorities are, DON'T DO STF's. And lose the stupid Rainbow/Technicolor Beams!'

No Responce.

We kill the carrier.

I type, 'Worst bunch I've seen in Days...'

No Responce.

The good part?

I somehow picked up 25 Omega Marks and a Borg NP.

Isn't it interesting how so many noobs seem to be unable to communicate at all? Their names, fleet names, ship names are obviously customized, and typically in English. You know that they have language skills and their brain is probably not completely lobotomized, yet they suddenly lack language skills during a game. Not sure if they're completely trolling and deliberately wasting everyone's time or if it's just how noobs roll.

Not to burst your bubble, but I believe you can get much more rewards than that. I've gotten multiple BNPs on Normal, simply because my ship deals so much more damage compared to the "Technicolor" boats.

Sorry, no bubble burst.

I often pull 5 BNP's. In the mission above I was just suprised to pull anything.

It was pretty bad.
