Gonna go out on a limb here and say the point ran over you at flank speed.
But lets throw the suggestion into the pot:
Sorry new guy. I know we said we'd help you and all when you joined. But look, we really only wanted you to go out there and farm dilithium and data samples for us so us 1337p33p5 dont have to. What do you mean you want to do the fun stuff with the rest of the fleet? Get your aluminum can of a light cruiser there and farm like theres no tomorrow. Because if you don't reach your quota, there wont be.
'cause holding off on fleet defense missions for a day or two until you are leveled is so long, right?
Having Mirandas and Connies is insanely bad. These missions need to be segregated based on class, and the enemies adjusted accordingly. All of the fleet missions are DPS races, and having underleveled ships going up against powerful negh'var's is terrible.
To put it in perspective, I'm in my bugship, and it's still taking me minutes to burn through the dreadnoughts shields. I can't imagine how painful it would be for a Miranda.
Do them a favour; put lowbies in a bracket where they can meaningfully fight.
Do us a favour; let us have ships that can actually finish a fight.
I'm confused here. Are we talking about STF's or PvE's? If they don't involve the borg and earn you EDC's, it's not an STF (Special Task Force). It kind of makes the title misleading. Not trying to pick, but it did throw me at first.
