Curious indeed. Personally when I'm leveling a new character, I'm grateful to see a VA come though and blast stuff, it makes the DSE mission go a lot faster. Faster mission=faster skill points=faster leveling.
I thought the main issue with DSEs was that they tend to spawn lvl 51 NPCs due to high level people trying to help out their fleet mates and whatnot.
the majority of the level 51 players in DSE's are in there because they want some accolade that really doesn't matter
theyre in there for their own selfish reasons.
and this lame excuse about helping the low levels in there withers and dies when the lvl 51 ships might be the first ships that fire on you as soon as you warp in. that really ****es me off, as you die faster than you can click the two buttons required to warp out.
