Hello All,


I am looking for a group interested in running this to achieve the optional. I have ran this almost 90 times with no luck. I have read http://www.stowiki.org/Mission:_Infe...us/Walkthrough as well as a couple other sites and also watched a few youtube videos as well and ran the Standard STF SEVERAL times.


So far this is the only STF optional I can't seem to complete in a PUG.


If interested contact me in game: Sare@hokeb1 My Time Zone is Eastern Time Zone (EDT) Or NYC time for the time zone challenged and I'm usually on after 8:30pm



thanks in advance

The fastest way to do it is to join the channel publicelitestf and say you're looking for an IGE run for optional.

Just type in chat client: /channel_join publicelitestf

There's a bunch of private channels as well that people play on for STFs.

Don't count on the stf channel... They are no better than pugs. You may need to look toward your fleet, and if they can't help you join a fleet who can.

Extremely strongly disagree with your comment. I've never failed an optional when using an STF channel for the past year. Whereas some pugs have been great, others have been absolutely atrocious.

For the first time, and with much pain in my heart, I have to agree with Akurie... Every Run I've had with people from that channel, has ended up in total disaster...

You wanna know how I got all my optional from Infected? PUG's...

Thats when I turned my back on that channel, and never looked back
My name may say "PWE member", but I will never be.

I've never had any issue with the channel, I've had way better runs with them than I ever did with pugs, that said though the IGE optional is extremely difficult, even with the best of the channel with the best team compositions I've only ever made it once every other time we've been 1 or two rooms away (we once had all but 1 of them and the timer ended the second before he registered as having beamed out, that was infuriating).

In short you might as well try the channel, you have nothing to lose aside from (upto) 30 minutes of your life and perhaps an optional and accolade to gain... worth a try right?

The channel isn't filled with ULTRA ELITE players, but I've never had any real problems with it. Ground Elite optionals take a level and kind of assertiveness and teamwork that some players may not be comfortable or familiar with, even if they've cleared Space Elites, especially Infected. Infected Space takes the smallest fraction of teamwork that Infected Ground does, but if the team gets a good rhythm going, the latter can go as smoothly as the former.
