And I'll remind people that something as simple as going up to some RP'ers and disrupting them with a bunch of fire extinguishers, ice blocks, smoke grenades is griefing. Especially if you've been asked to stop and you continue disrupting their game play.
Well, for the RPers, if you are in a very public place, say the exchange at ESD or right at the spawn points in Sol System, then you will get people messing up stuff. I get random people extending shields or tachyon detection grid-ing whenever I am there for more than a minute.

If you RP, if you can, it would be wise to go somewhere not as full of random people, like that lounge place on ESD.

Yeah, I'm going to agree with this. I was on a friend's bridge taking some fleet photos, and one of the guys just randomly threw the biothermal dampener. I have a decent graphics card, and I got quite a bit of lag from 25 people frozen by it, then the ice breaking brought me down to like 2 fps.

The day smoke grenades or fire extinguishers is griefing is the day that will never come.

But e-drama is so much better the soap operas... I do not care about how Bethany is the daughter of her own daughter because Carl was an astrophysicts, who was accused of murdering Bethany's baby because he accidently sent her back in time, and as Bethany's mother dies of old age, ironically murdered by Carl because she had a baby, at the ripe age of 87, with his brother, who had married his best friend from high school...

The instance you described above would not be considered greifing in my opinion. I might wonder why the team leader had the group finder on if he wasn't interested in grouping with randoms, but I wouldn't call it griefing.

Please remember that you can turn off the feature which allows you to be automatically teamed with other people when doing missions. While we do default this setting to on, as we believe playing an MMO with others is more fun, you can turn it off at any time in your grouping options.

Thanks,

yep, i make a point of setting to "allow requests" (or something like that) during normal play. I only change my settings when i am actively LOOKING to play as a team. It has helped out with many things to play this way. just a minutes thought before a gaming session can make life a lot easier
