Mine was yesterday. It was the mother of all bad pugs. It literally had everything: Abyssmal DPS, Cruisers that couldn't tank, rainbow boats, beam escorts, tractor beams on stationary objects, lack of ability to follow proper protocols (i.e. kill the nodes simultaniously)...
PUGged Infected: The Conduit and Khitomer Vortex both Elite. In Infected some guy destroyed a generator without following the 10% rule, his response "s**t happens".
In Khitomer Vortex some guy left probe duty to kill a cube and didn't tell anyone. He was also using every torpedo imaginable.
Great way to start the day
Yesterday this happened twice. Vortex Elite, 4 split off to one side while i take right side probes + generators. Despite having 4 people on the job they still manage to let probes slip though + fail to kill cubes. ended up killing 3 cubes.
As for the various torpedoes, that's not a no-go by definition but it does take a bit of knowledge to combine torpedoes. In general torpedo boats are quantum, harpeng and cluster.
I was in a PUG KASE where I ended up destroying 3 cubes and nanite transformers all by my self, and most of the 4th one. A couple of probes managed to escape into the vortex, but that didn't matter because we wouldn't have gotten the TIMED optional anyways if I had to waste time killing every single probe that spawned.
When Donatra spawned, I didn't do anything for 30 seconds, checking to see how much DPS the other 4 guys were capable of. In a little over 30 seconds, Donatra's health bounced from 97% to 100%. Suffice to say, each one of them was dealing less than 1k DPS.
Call me jerk, but I aborted the mission as soon as I saw that. I could've carried all 4 of them, but y'know what? Eff that. I might as well have been in a PUG with 4 afkers.
was doing ISE/Infected-Space with 4 pugs:
A lifetimer with his 1000-day ship, a Galor, a Scimitar, a Prometheus and me with my Mirror Deep Space Vessel.
They were doing so low damage, that i kept getting the aggro.
The optional was wasted immediately too.
When they were at the gateway, i wasn't doing anything. And they made 10% in 1 Minute... do I have to say more?
