You know, I usually run about a STF a day, at varying times and I had literally never seen an STF saboteur until today. I had thought them to be overreactions by most players, and indeed, most of the times when people on teams called someone a saboteur they were completely wrong. Poor player does not equal saboteur.
That being said, on Khitomer Accord ground I had a teammate on a pug just go running right through the groups of borg strait to the final room, popping the start of the optional objective, and then he just stood there waiting for us to catch up. It was crazy. Do people really get enjoyment out of wasting time like this?
Sometimes people don't even sabotage actively, they're just too stupid or lazy to actually do anything besides firing on primary objectives. Yesterday I ragequit a space KA because four dudes did not manage to stop the probes on "their" side, even after I begged in team chat two or three times for one of them to please take care of the probes.
I can't count the times I've almost died while killing nanites in Infected space because not one of the four other guys thought it necessary to take aggro of the normal spheres off me.
Another strange fellow kept circling the Kang even after two of the three cubes were dead, he wasn't even just AFK or idling because sometimes he flew 5 klicks to fire on a BOP but he was not able to understand that an escort already taking care of the BOPs means he doesn't have to circle the Kang.
There's a lot of players who, I guess, play with their chat minimized to maximize their "immersion". I guess. And a same number of players is just unable to understand their surroundings and "get" what is going on and that maybe helping out the cruiser who's DPS clearly can't take care of nanites fast enough would be a good idea. And so on.
Just normal MMO people
This is all made up for by the many, many great teams you get. Seriously, noobs who don't want to learn and ********s are not the majority here IMO.
Can't say i've been unlucky enough to run into an actual saboteur.
Just people that either dont listen/read or cant understand. This is why I always keep my eye on either the gate, the nanites, or the kang. about 40% of the time I have to go back and do these objectives myself. Just how the world works!
either way i'm just happy as long as I get it finished.
