# 1 I want a STF QUEUE allready !
12-21-2010, 03:53 PM
i just spend over an hour in Zonechat...

LFG FED ENG Infected from start ...blah blah blah ...100 times

don't think anybody ever invited me.

then i just started inviting people instead.

Of course one guy was unable to join the instance, for whatever reason,
the other 3 started blasting away at the Borg....
and when they realised 5 minutes later that one guy was missing...

"yeah let's go all back to Sector Space and search for one more."
quit.... quit... "hey where is everyone?" quit...

bye bye team.


back to start.... *ugh*


You know what?

FRAK THAT!

I want, no i NEED a Queue for the STF's or i will just keep boycotting them.

I will not waste one more minute LFG-ing in Zonechat for PUG's.

Yea, we really need a que system and cross faction teaming pretty bad.

While I am holding off on any STF running till S4, when those improvements are in.
I would consider giving STFs another shot before then if could get a que system in place so we do not have to spam zone chat over and over.

With the added frustration of groups falling apart more often than not for various reasons I will not go into here, having to spam the same lfg line over and over only to get nowhere or a group that falls apart does not help the overall bottom line of STFs.

A que system and cross faction teaming is pretty much imo a must have.

Cryptic knows how hard it is for the KDF to find a pug for the fail STF''s. Did dstahl say that he think it was a great idee to let the KDF and FEDS do the STF's together ? YES. Have alot of players asked about this for a long time ? YES. Have Cryptic done anything about this ? NO.Do they care ? NO.Many days there are the lone KDF player in gamme asking in the zone chat for a pug to do the STF's , does these players find a pug to do them with as the days go by ? in most cases NO. Is it a waist of time for me to post this because i know they dont care about players at end game ? YES.

If you read dstahl's recent post, it's being worked on: an STF, Fleet Action, and PvP queue system that also allows for private instances (i.e. just your fleet, or just your pug teams).

Communication took a bit of a hit but that's due to dstahl being sick unexpectedly. YOu tend to get sick more when you work long hours - which I doubt anyone can argue about dstahl.

sounds good but i'm not entirely sure if "private" is what i am looking for.
But i will keep watching out for that feature, thx for the info.
At this point any improvement is welcome!

The issue is communication between players. A queue is one option, another would've been a global "looking for group" channel.

Zone chat is not really worth anything. I have it turned off altogether (except during PvP) as it usually is just a mixture of Barrens Chat and crafter ads. It is too general and it is, as the name implies, limited to a single zone.

For the time being, I can only recommend joining one of the subcommunities within STO who usually have a custom channel of their own and, if you're real lucky, enough active players that are willing to join up.
