I don't say they're right to behave like that but you should understand the word "elite", it's really for the best builds. If they complain you can also tell them that when they play with pugs, they take a risk they have to accept. Just don't be aggressive too when you read some angry feelings about what you do.

You shouldn't play stfs in a cruiser with someone esle but your fleetmates, they will be more tolerant. And there is plenty of pvp you can do with whatever ship you want.
Nothing wrong with cruisers in an stf!
As long as they are piloted well and have the skillset needed, they can put out almost as much dps as any escort, but then I have seen many an escort pilot be just as useless

Any pug team dosen't need a "gate-keeper".... IMO the idea is nuts, as a proper team (pug or not) is usually more than capable of keeping the probes FAR from the vortex.

You didn do anything wrong... They simply failed at taking proper precautions

OP -

I suggest strolling across the puddle of their tears and just keeping playing YOUR game YOUR way.

Too true!

As posted in the 'Worst STF' thread, encountered a worthless Fleet Escort Rainbow beam-boat a few days ago.

Sadly, the players flying them don't see that there is anything wrong with it and, in many cases, actually think that they're superior to a single energy weapon type setup.

I gotta say, in Infected Space Elite, my usually laid-back demeanor turns to ire when the optional ges borked NOT because of the loot loss but because if you don't blow the Nanite Gens all att once, the mission goes from 10-15 minutes to a 30-minute slog. These are valuable minutes I'll never get back.

Point is, I understand, but really, the optional loot is just icing. If it doesn't extend the gameplay time by losing it, it's not so bad.

I have seen more all-antiproton ships bork the optionals than "rainbow" or "Skittle boats".

I find that my skill set and BO's works way better with a cruiser then an escort and the reason i guard the time gateway thing is because I've seen too many probes slip through when there isnt a guard, and when i guard 99% of the time we get the bonus, and my build is elite

just ignore that crap. don't let it get to you. almost every mission i fail has some loser calling everyone a noob. it is the noob name caller that causes the failure.

there are a lot of nice people playing and some *******s too. just ignore the jerks. put them on you ignore list and you will never see them again.

OP, the people who called you a noob were just being mean and have nothing better to do than search for every oppportunity to bring someone down. I've seen many cases like this, including one stf I was in a while back. My friend wanted to do an stf, so we did a pug CSE. If I'm going to do a pug, I usually will only do normals. So anyway, I knew that everyone was going to pile onto guarding the Kang, so I flew off to kill the probes. As I am doing that I see the four other people trying to stop who knows how many BoPs and Raptors. My friend had stopped attacking the probes earlier to try and help these people, but the Kang was still getting desroyed. So I fly over to check on the Kang's health, only to find it destroyed soon after. And then one of the other people (not my friend) starts raging, saying something like "you guys suck, especially you voporak!" Then he warps out and my friend and I are wondering what's wrong with this guy, because obviously I had nothing to do with losing the stf. I just figured he was another one of those people who purposely sets out to insult everyone and needs all the loot.

Those who say things like this without any evidence are the real noobs.

The shallow end of the gene pool tends to drain directly into STFs sometimes. Nothing for it except maybe stoke their impotent rage and laugh at the things they write in chat.

When they flame you, just respond in different languages. I like Klingon, but any will work.
