some people just take the intended role of their ships way too seriously

i can take a guess as to why his ship has paper-thin hull, and it's not because of the BoP's low base HP

Cure Found, space elite.

Me: fleet heavy cruiser retro, specced heal/tank.

Them:
  • Defiant. Good DPS and knew the strat, but would pointedly leave teammates struggling with spawns instead of helping kill them.
  • Prometheus. Oh lord, this captain. Took no actions except sitting motionless and unloading on cubes. Died dozens of times due to total lack of self-preservation instinct. Never touched a BoP or spawn, even when they flew right past him. Advocated for counter-productive strats such as killing the cubes early.
  • Two Odysseys. Apparent cube-phobia, because they never approached to help with probes. That's okay though, because they somehow had their hands full desperately trying to kill BoPs.

With only the Defiant and me on probes (I'm not counting the Prometheus with all the time spent dead/damaged), things were slow. The total lack of teamwork meant Negh'var/Raptor spawns were also a hot mess, and I had already given up on optional. Still, things were basically under control until we started popping cubes. By the time we popped the second, the two poor Odysseys had totally lost control of the situation and the Kang was at 20%. I swept in to heal but it was too late, and we lose the match outright.

It was the Wizard of Oz group. The Defiant needed a heart, the Odysseys needed courage, and the Prometheus needed a gorram brain.

It is the weirdest thing, to see cruisers who are afraid to engage probes in Cure Elite. That is just insane.

But it's a lot worse seen a cruiser camping Kang, waiting for BoP to get closer to Kang before they think they should do something.

No, the weirdest thing is to see those cruisers being killed by single probe in few seconds.
Sorry for any mistakes, english isn't my primary language.

if a player gets killed by a probe in cure, that is a truly epic fail because those probes have no weapons

same goes for probes in khitomer; they have weapons, but they don't fire on you

Always fun to see people throwing Jam Sensors on Khitomer/Cure probes as well. Good job guys; now you're safe.

Yes, they do. It's quite sad.

In my mind, any ship that is killed by one sphere is a fail. A sphere takes a while to take down (if not a Tac in an Escort), but by itself, its weapons are hardly lethal.

How about those player's that don't repair their injuries and have like a dozen or more during a match...


Hmmm how about those that dps warp gates at close range and get themself's killed repeatly over & over & over and don't even learn...

I'll add another..

How about a those doing probe duty in Khitomer and can't nail all the probes before they warp out and you fail the bonus...

yesterday was fun.
joined an ise. there was a ody (simple ody no dps), a rainbow intrepid, an afker escort and a beamscort...
at the generators I started to work on one, but beamscort joined at 40% so I brought down another to around 10%, while the two others brought the 3rd one to 60% and left one alone. the problem was, that our beamscort friend couldnt realize the low dps, so blew early, and with the low dmg done overall (1500 dps was the highest of theirs...) we pretty much failed the optional as one grav well from me was not enough, while they went off fighting spheres...

when we brought the cube, it was all over me, so I decided to have fun, and pretty much took it down to 40% alone, while everyone else took the gate down to a similar level (yeah right...). when I finally died because I was peeking where them were. I died. went back to the 40% gate killed it, and then I just bugged out to start a new ise as I needed to get a nice parse (overall I pretty much did 8k dps, while tanking cube, doing everything, and only left them a 40% cube, so noone can really balme me for anything but spending 15 minutes in an ise, which is a crime in itself)
