It would be nice to visit the starbase without being spammed by the Breen thermal ice block whatever it is. My computer normally handles this game pretty well, but that particular effect drops my framerate down to nothing. People know this, and use it for griefing.

If I have someone on my ignore list I should not see anything they do, including their use of stupid powers. They shouldn't even be able to target me with "friendly" buffs.

Ignore means ignored, I ignore someone for a reason and I don't want to see or hear anything out of them. Thanks.

Spamming someone with abilities to the extent that their framerate bottoms out and the game crashes for them is griefing.

The Breen ice skill thing creates the same framerate **** effect that some of the ice powers in Champions Online causes.

I'm sad that they decided to import that nonsense into STO.

As I said, my computer has no problems with the graphics effects in this game otherwise, but the ice block just kills my framerate.

i can understand your point, my frames drop to you know but still i don't call that griefing, its a pain in the butt for sure but calling it griefing ...
and yeah like i said the powers of any type of skill, just disable them wen players are on starbases or on nutral ground.! problem solved, you don't need em anyways cus you can't fight there anyhow.

this game is for high end computers no what others say, if you don't have a high end computer you gona get stuck somewhere in this game, wait till the critters are in game i bet a frame drop will be on the planets side missions aswell critters = poligons so more power will be needed again.
then again this game is so badly written (code wise) that even if you have a high end computer you still might be in trouble sometimes. i have a 1GB Vid card, Quad CPU 2.8Ghz, 8GB system ram, 10k rpm HDs and i still can't run this game at the max settings no matters what i try it just won't work on max settings.

I see where the misunderstanding lies.

The people in question where not merely using the power near me, but rather they intentionally followed after me spamming powers.

So using the Breen freeze thing is not griefing, but any time you follow someone around attempting to harass them, that's obviously a form of griefing.
