lol i actually spend a lot of time in those encounters farming for stuff to sell, but only because people charge lame prices for mk X equipment and mk IV/VI ( for memory alpha upgrading)....what i do is just warp out and find a quieter instance.

Im farming there too after my dailies, but right there are always the same 4-5 ppl everytime i get there.
Mostly escorts who wait till u engage and then pick off the cubes for the loot.

Why else would they be in there 24/7 (server downtime excluded) and have similar gibberish names like "lilasa001, lilasa002, lilasa009, snake999, snakeabc, snakeabc3" etc.

but if they are indeed within the rules, GM action still needs to be taken to open at least a second map so others can at least attempt to gain loot ..as far as i know this is the only zone where blue mk X items drop.

Well, if you want to get your crafting skills up on all 3 Crafts (Science, Tactical and Engineer), you have to get a LOT of mats, you can either buy them for exorbitant prices on the Exchange or farm em. Plus, you'll need the Common quality base item as well, which again, exorbitant prices on Exchange or farm for em.

I blew through all the Credits I had earned up to RA5 just to get Tactical up to T3, and I guess Science and Engineering require 4 times more.

So yeah. If you want to craft, or at least be able to craft some decent items, you can easily run out of money using the Exchange to farm for resources. The nice thing about crafting though, once you unlock it all, you can use it to really buff an alt with some nice gear.

Make it a pvp area for everybody for a month. That would clear them out.

I'm surprised they managed to get there, usually they just complete the tutorial and then spam until they're deleted/silenced.
No, no. You are confusing their spamming accounts with their farming accounts. They need higher levels to actually amass the credits they sell.
