# 1 Kerrat battleground - WTF?
01-23-2011, 10:45 AM
Hey guys, I have a small question. There aren't many (negative) WTF moments I have experienced in STO, but today was definitely one of them. As a fed Defiant-refit flyer, I joined Kerrat battlespace for my daily emblem quest. I was flying quite quick, avoided mobs and captured two of the nodes. Much to my surprise, one guy (as was later visible from the score) captured everything else in the same amount of time as I captured those two nodes!
This happened (same guy) in 3 BG's in a row. How the hell did he do that?

(I assume the score is calculated from the captured objectives, not from damage done, since I was second and attacked only one hulk, everyone else was chasing Klingons)

He knows how to do it faster than you.

each node scanned = 1 point, each hulk killed = 4 points. and yes, he knows how to get to and scan the nodes faster then you and he's not the only one. proficiency comes with practice, do it enough and I'm sure you'll have some n( . )( . )b confused as to how you're managing to hit the licks that fast.

On my klingon BoP I can do 5 in the time it takes a fed (even one with regular cloak) to do 1 by being clever with my battle cloak.


I think it is a little bit hilarious that instead of considering that the person found a way to do it faster than you, you insinuate that they MUST be cheating, who else could do something faster than you?

The simplest explanation tends to be the right one.

Did I say he was cheating? My question is how he did that. Nothing more.

I assume you used the hide and go seek tactic where you stay cloaked and run and grab nodes? He very well may have been taking nodes when other engaged the borg or maybe used a lot of speed boosting items to run the corse quick.

The score is based on both the captures and the damage to the Hulks. I've noticed that damage to hulks playes a bigger part then the captured nodes. When I do Kerrat I find a spot where I can hit at least 2 if not 3 nodes very quickly before I decloak and start blasting. I ignore the Borg and kill the Hulks usually taking out 2 and damaging the 3 if not redryoing it with ramming speed and my warp core breach. This assures my 1st place everytime.

My moment was when the Top guy had 13 points and me in second had 14 WTF LOL!

This post here is where you insinuate that its impossible for a person to do it faster than you, and therefore the implication is that the person cheated.

Just because YOU are quite good at something doesn't mean you had to be so high and mighty with such an obtuse answer to begin with.

(I know how to use Dictionary.com also)
