I notice people are STILL recommending TS and CSV, is this a PvP thing or something? Only way I can imagine that they're feasible.

TS and CSV hit just as hard as HY or CRF, except it invites you to get your *** kicked in STFs. Its not a good idea to attract attention there with your fancy AoE skills, lest you LIKE watching yourself explode.

Huh? CSV and TS are the cat's meow in STF. Don't leave home without it. I thought the way you did too at one time. But now I'll NEVER go back to beams or CRF. It's a badge of honor to get a handfull of weapons aimed at me. It means I'm hitting hard. I't's also why we have a means of escape like APO.

Well, it is easier to use Scatter Volley and Spread, so lets call it the brain-dead methode. For Rapid Fire and High Yield you'll get a feeling for how much damage is needed to kill someting and this leads to being able to switch to the next target as soon as enough damage is on its way. It's probably a matter of taste. I like to control what I'm fighting, so I prefer single target attacks. It's not really worse, it's just different and requires an additional klick or key hit to go to the next target.

You also have to remember that cannons lose a lot of damage over range, so scatter volley is just a joke on long range. If your ship can't take a hit, AoE can easily screw your day or that of the whole team in a way usually only FAW cruisers manage to do. And it is always a pleasure to fight next to an AoE junkie on Infected or KA. As soon as he/she/it hits the gate it always targets me instead, must be some kind of weird karma.

No, it is not. It just means that you are the only one crazy enough to attack everything all the time.

Try looking at the stats in space. Mine don't show up on ground, either.

# 390 STO STF Normals for Noobes
02-18-2012, 09:05 PM
After seeing a number of noobes going off on their own today in normal STF's I looked for and found a decent guide.

It's actually called STF Normals for Noobes.

It doesn't matter how good the build is if you don't know how to fly the mission.
