PUGs are probably the best content in the game.

Agreed.

Those who DO know can show those who DON'T know how to do it.

Those who DON'T know can learn from those who DO know how to do it.

Those who THINK they know can show those who DONT know AND those who DO know how NOT to do it.

qft.

I mean it is fun also, to find out, that one of your fleetmates have 10k dps (totally true), and you can do CSE in 10 mins, but theres nothing like a good game of pug, when someone knows better

The Fleet runs are pretty much predictable - we almost certainly will have the optional - it's rare to wonder IF you're going to make it (like the other night in ISE when you made the map and 2 teammates dropped). KASE for 7 minutes...and we most definitely can do rrmmll on CSE, so PuG is exciting and sometimes fun.
How was your pug last night? Mine was for the other topic (the really good ones)
PuG-ing is the best feature for me at the moment, although sometimes one might get frustrated.
Cheers.

Hello

New to the forums, but not new too the game.

I have been spamming STF's in a mad dash to get all of my gear before the train wreck of Season 7 hits. All has been going remarkably well, until I hit the massive speed bump of "The Cure" stf, I have been able to clear this STF on elite with no trouble until the recent week, all sorts of goofy **** has been happening, like people flying off in all different directions, four people protecting the Kang yet it still gets turned into space dust. Failed like five in a row due to something like this, this **** is like having a aneurysm in your a** instead of your brain.

Sorry now I feel better....

It takes a MINIMUM of three rainbow/technicolor beam boats (they MUST be rainbow/technicolor) to protect the Kang, One person to kill the cubes and nodes, and one person setting 35k in the distance calling everyone a noobe in order to properly complete or fail a CSN.

Everybody has been in complete agreement on those terms for a long long time. LOL!!!

Like everybody in here, I've been in my share of bad groups, and I'm disappointed and/or irritated when it happens but we all get over it in pretty short order. However a few weeks ago I was pugging IGE with a friend to try and gear our alts, and it left a really really bad taste based on the actions of one person...

So I'm sure that everybody knows that it's.......less than likely to get the optional for Infected Ground Elite while you're pugging, but every now and then lightning strikes in the queues and a group of quality people are put together.

So my friend and I get into IGE and everybody says hi, and it gets established quickly that 3 of the people in the group had gotten the optional in the past (my friend and I included) and two of the people admitted that they'd never gotten it and didn't know how, but I was pleasantly surprised (and encouraged) when both of them agreed to stay behind me and follow my lead. However the final guy immediately chimes in that I don't know what I'm doing and that if they (the newer players) wanted to get the optional then they should contact his fleet because they sell runs and will get both of them the optional for a fee.

At the start I think nothing of it at the start and just tell the inexperienced guys to follow my lead and we'll be fine.

Instantly the problem props up, my friend and I are directing traffic for the two newer guys during the first crewman, and instead of contributing, the final guy walk (yes walks) right past the firing line and ignores everything and walks into the room. My friend and I rush in and are able to save the crewman, and the 2 inexperienced guys proved to be pretty good as they didn't die and helped mop up. We were still on pace...

Next room/crewman, same deal, he walks in and triggers the timer and we rush in and save it. Next crewman, same thing, and the next and the next; all the while telling everybody that if they want to get the optional then they should run with people that know what they're doing and contact his fleet to buy a run.

We kept it up and kept the pace as best we could (we were a little behind given that only 4 people were participating) and we kept saving the crewman right up until the first double. The ******* triggered the line and we saved one but not the second crewman and the optional was lost.

In the end we got the run finished, but it just left a really bad taste in my mouth that that ******* sabotaged the entire group just so he could sell runs for his fleet (even had the rates posted in his Bio), and didn't stop advertising it until we were finished and exiting.

Wow, what a douchebag.

I'd love to frag that moron in a PvP queue.

I have to agree with this. Season 7 is like a flip kick in the nuts, the bright side is I will never have to do Cure stf again lol.
