To be fair, perhaps it's not a bad thing if they made it more difficult; the team I was with were the type of players who would've steamrollered the mission usually.

We followed the 10% rule, and the number of spheres that appeared subsequent to transformer popping was definitely larger than previously. And I maintain that they were hitting harder too - their shield drains seems faster which was probably why we were getting taken out quicker.
I really hope they make it so. That would mean that Tanks, Healers or Crosshealing will be needed in at least one STF :-) (Couldn't test the new one yet -.-)

I hope so too - it was difficult, and having to sit in respawn oblivion a little more frequently than usual wasn't much fun - but on the flipside:

I was using my Science toon, in my Wells class and I actually felt relevant for once. Usually it's little more than a DPS-fest, but my crowd-control abilities really came into their own on the instance. With more spheres present, and DPS alone not being the answer, GWIII and a torpedo (chroniton) spread III, for example, really did help keep things under control.

Now here's a problem I though Cryptic fixed a long time back.

There I was....

Fleet Mission.

I pug in and the first thing I see is 'Im in a shuttle! I'm in a shuttle!'

I type, 'Oh Goody.'

Someone else types, 'That could be a problem.'

We won despite the shuttle.

I never saw him die, but i never saw him do anything either.

I don't know if it's my worst experience, per se, but it did leave me baffled.

I queued for CSE, and beamed in, only to see 6 raptors and 2 BoP's swarming the Kang and 3 out of 4 players in respawn oblivion. One of the players announced to me that they'd lost, because somebody'd blown a cube early.

Well, I still fired up the old impulse engines on my carrier, threw all of my heals at the Kang (which was down to 20% and no shields by that time), only to prolong it's life by some 5 seconds.

In about 40 seconds I had beamed in and back out again.

I have had the fortune of never facing any players with bad attitudes before. Bad builds I have seen, but at least they had decent attitudes. Until today.

I go for ISE for a quick run. One of the players was a Chimera who launched off fireworks at the beginning of the match. I think, "Cool, seems it'll go well."

Then, something inside me shatters as I see rainbow beams flying from the Chimera. Of course, I just type in, "Um, why are ya running beams on that ship?" He replies that he has a reason but won't tell me. I say OK, and keep going.

I later notice that he's beginning to collect injuries. So, I ask him if he has any components to repair with. That sets him off. He starts ranting about how we're all doing 0 dps and he's the only one doing anything. He then says that he'll have to go through the trouble of going to a shipyard and paying for repairs. Of course, I tell him that he can just use components. He ignores that, and boasts about completing optional even with one team member missing and taking down a tac cube on his own in two minutes, and saying we can't do it in one. We tell him to do it, but he says he's "Turning off dps", whatever that means, and runs off to 20 km for the rest of the match, continuing to rant about our 'trashing his build' and 'giving him repair b*s'. We finish the map without him but not under optional, given that two others had rainbow beams. At least the others knew what to do.

If there was any player I wanted to turn my disruptors on and utterly decimate, it would be him. Wish I could, given I was KDF and he was a fed.

Happens, I think that I actually gained the KASE optional when once I arrived to see a completed run with optional gained ... I did looked for a loot bag but that was too much luck.

Apparent the same issue with Borg Incursions exists on STFs, you can join a existing team that already have completed it or is in the process of losing, at least KAS allows you to lose and leave.

I have begun to get deep feelings of dread when I PuG certain missions-especially Cure and Khitomer, and I see 3 or more Feds in the line up.

Even when I am, myself, playing my fedside alts.

it's called, "How in HELL am I drawing Aggro off the Feddie Cruiser? I'm in a BIRD OF PREY with NO C-store consoles, NO threat control, No weapons console better than MkXI blue, running DISRUPTORS!!!"

On fedside, playing my Tac in an Advanced Escort, it's usually more "Jesus, people, have you ever heard of fixing your injuries??" (I don't actually SAY that-no reason to spew venom on the channel, and my fingers have better things to be doing-like killing Probes.)

Guess I'm not the only one with this story. C'ept I'm running phasers on my raptor while the feds got AP and all the agro is after me.

Must be a klink thing.
