When I stumble into an instance with players who are lower than me, I tend to stay out of their fight - or at the periphery of it - and heal them as they fight instead of fighting with them. I do this because I disliked it when I was new and the upper-level ships stole all the kills. But then I thought maybe these players think I'm just AFKing and getting free points. What do you think?

I've been in that situation a couple times. I tend to do the same. Heal as much as I can, debuff the enemy, jump in if they're struggling and about to blow.

It might seem a little like your scavenging for free points, but sometimes people just want to do things on their own. Staying out of the way with lower players just gives them a chance to play the game.

You should help them, but only a little bit. Kill a few enemies, but not too much.

Well, I can only do so much. I can disable an enemy, repair and extend shields, I'm a science ship. I have very little that I can do against multiple enemies myself and I have yet to figure out how to get the enemies to target me over a more damaged player. But I stay about 10K out and let the lower players do their best - unless there's a really big enemy bearing down on them then I will step in..."pick on somebody your own size..." sort of thing.

i tend to lead the charge. i invite anybody that wants to fly around with me on a team and if they accept then we go around and blow stuff up. if they don't accept then i just go off on my own and take things out myself.

I personally wouldn't care about the intervention if it makes those 6,7,8 system chains move along faster heh.
