Had a pretty poor run earlier.

PuG'ed ISE in my Fleet Mogh, accompanied by a Scimitar, a Vor'cha, a Bortas and a Rom Dyson ship.

I'm not saying it was a terrible run as such, but it certainly took a lot long than I would have expected. This wasn't helped by the fact that the Rom Dyson ship didn't move from the spawn point. Don't know whether there was a genuine reason for the lack of participation there, but he didn't move for the majority of the mission, and then next time I paid him any heed he'd vanished - DC'ed? Penalty? Don't know.

The Scimitar wasn't very well built either and spent rather a lot of time exploding, or trying to fire it's thalaron weapon, and exploding before it could. Best damage he did was the lethal thalaron fart cloud his explosion(s) produced.

The Bortas was unremarkable - not terrible, but lumbered around making absolutely no attempt to get anywhere very quickly.

The Vor'cha was decent though - was using FAW to good effect, and the instance really came down to myself and the Vor'cha doing all the work, with the Bortas contributing when it finally plodded into firing range.

So not the worst by any means, and I like a challenge, but it was a pity that the Bortas didn't seem to even be trying and the Rom Dyson did nothing.

While not an STF I had to deal with some loser during ANR.

Basically there was this internet tough guy bragging how he can solo ANR and was harassing a player because he wouldnt let him go solo. He kept on harassing the players and got pissed when I told him "no one cares if you can solo".

The loser said he was going to find me in real life and murder my family. (can you believe this guy?). Once the mission was over I left and went to get something to eat. When I come back I get a ton of private messages sent from 2 different accounts, obviously from the same guy.

He continues to send threats, saying I'm a coward for not fighting him and how I just like to talk ****. Really? I never realized "no one cares" is talking ****. Some time later I kept on getting similar messages from others in the same fleet as that guy.

Avoid fleet with the name "Ignotus" in the name. Pretty sure they are run by losers like this guy.

Name-and-shame isn't allowed on the forums, but JFC that guy's an assh*le.

I shouldn't laugh, because it's not funny as such - but the pure, unadulterated, stupidity of such players really is laughable.

I mean, said player is VERY likely a fat, lazy, basement dwelling Orc, and therefore has neither the resources, money or stamina to leave it's basement. Reminds me of this:

To get so wound up about a GAME indicates a severe personality disorder.

LOL

I was reading his post and thinking almost the same as you. When I read "murder family", I was like "yeah, the guy getting up from the chair is probably an extraordinary ocasion let alone killing someone". It would probably end up in unintentional suicide.

Who left their DPS behind in that KSE I did last night?

We had me in my unfinished and therefore underpowered Mirror Negh and my buddy in his Kar'Fi. Then there was a Scimmy that kept dying, a Vo'Quv who seemed to know what he was doing maneuvers-wise but had a half-dozen injuries when he came in, and some weirdo in a Sov using tetryon beams and a single antiproton (probably the omni). My Mk XI plasma-disruptor hybrid DHCs were doing more damage than the last guy was.

And then I started getting invisitorped repeatedly, which, why the frak hasn't that been fixed yet?

The amazing part was, despite the handicaps, we still managed to avoid letting any probes through, and only lost the optional because time ran out. We blew the second gate maybe twenty seconds after the timer died.

And then we come to Donatra, who keeps cloaking due to people getting too close, at one point actually had her hull going back up, and one of the others (don't recall which one) didn't seem to realize that getting caught in the big glowing green cone is a bad idea. I mean, she got me once because I couldn't get clear in time and she clipped my tail, but this guy didn't even seem to realize you could get out of the way.

Seriously, report him to Cryptic. There should be no place for that BS anywhere, and people shouldn't get away with it. Not to get all mother hen but "cyber bullying" as the olds call it is a real thing and shouldn't be tolerated.

Agreed, wholeheartedly.

Internet Tough Guys are disgusting human beings as well as pathetic losers.

People who are using the anonymity of the internet to insult and threaten people - iīm sure they are too cowardish to say it face to face in RL - are really pissing me off.

And the only solution is to report them. Donīt argue with them, they are not worth it. Just click on the "report to GM" option.

Oh, and I hope that you will make more positive experiences in the future.

Greetings, K.E.J.

Does nobody guard the Kang anymore on CSE?

I've just done a game where the Kang was down to 3% hull with 5 raptors swarming round it and only 2 science vessels trying to cover it whilst all the other were off trying to kill the cubes.
They let every single bop, raptor and negh'var through as they were too busy trying to flatten the cubes in the fastest time but were failing miserably. There was even a JHAS in there doing barely anything despite as it kept dying repeatedly and couldn't dps its way out of a paper bag.

Me in a vesta and this rom dyson ship were trying to hold of the hordes of npcs but for some reason to the rom guy didn't try using any heals on the Kang and just sat parked over it shooting at the npcs.

When it goes to hell like that the team really needs tp pay more attention!

Man it was a close call!
