I watched it fully and provided the odd hull/shield heal ever now and then. Was funny to watch the Tac Cube fly to where I had cloaked after it had locked onto me. ISE, in my honest opinion, is the easiest Space STF due to the fact you cannot outright fail it like KASE and CSE. The only thing you can fail in ISE is the Optional. However, we did set some limits on the 2 man, and they were as follows:
If the Nanite Spheres healed the Transformer at all, it was a failure and we all leave.
if it got too long in it, we would write it off as a failure and leave.
Luckily those two never happened. as the Transformers were killed before the Nanites got to it.
When in doubt, nuke it from orbit.

Reason: Fixed grammar and BBCode stuffs.
It was a week or two ago I think, but one time the game put me into an ISE pug already long gone and nobody was left in the match and a transformer was swamped with spheres and there was the other side which had nothing done to it yet, here's what I did below.
I just let the nanite spheres gather without concern of time, all four of them till they were orbiting the transformer, then I nuked the two regular spheres since they were hostile but the nanites were not. Then I wore down all four of the nanite spheres till down to like 10% using my plasma torp bleed-through and fires and then blew them all fast as I could at same time with my torps and mines only B'rel. Once they were gone I believe I had like 30 secs or so before the spheres would respawn in the gate, more than enough for me alone to blow the transformer, repeated same strategy on other side.
I nearly won this all alone, I combined plasma mines and torps with carefully timed hull buffs when I had to expose myself to the tac cubes torps for that brief moment when enhanced cloak had to be lowered. I managed after a long time to get it down to 4%, but then I screwed up and got snared by a tractor beam -_-. But nonetheless a completely one man solo run of ISE is entirely possible as I proved there, not bad for a sci in a plasma torp and mines only B'rel hehe!
