I'm sorry, but if you enter and instance knowing you won't be able to actually help the team at all as you can't move, but you are happy to press need on anything that drops, then that is leeching. Thats is the situation the OP is describing.

It sucks if a player has a bad graphics card, but that doesn't give them the right to join instances and reep all the rewards without helping. To be honest, if my graphics card couldn't handle me doing an instance and I knew it, I simply wouldn't enter the instance, since I know I'd be screwing over the gaming experiance of the people I'm joining the instance with.

I think whats worse though, is the fact that its possable to get negative marks! Meaning that the leechers are not only needing on loot which they didn't help to get, but they are also resulting in the guys that are trying to earn marks to actually loose them!

And you have options to prevent that. You could...

...update your video card (if possible).

...change your video settings to compensate for your "bad" video card.

...not enter instances where you know it will be a problem until you're able to replace your video card.

Though I have to say, if the buffs are killing your frame rate, your video card is probably not well suited to playing the game at all.

Again... it's your fault for having your video settings turned up too high.

If you think IDIC tribble is bad wait until I get out my Triolic Pattern Enhancer. Squeal like a pig!!

Um seriously, I had to carefully adjust my video settings to avoid slowdown issues. But after proper tweaking I have good video and good framerate.
HAIL HYDRA!

This is exactly why I don't bother joining blockade, its to easy to lose marks because of afkers/leechers or simply people who couldn't figure out you need to protect the transports not blow stuff up as a main objective even after you tell them that.

On the other had I got similar problem with frame rate at the defense even where your teamed up with 19 people, I don't remember the name it was bugged for 3 days so I forgot xD

So I turn half-resolutions on when I join it to lag a bit instead of freezing completely when the final attack appears and you see like 100 enemies on top of your 20 man team.

1. Needing - Frankly I try to watch what the group does first, and if I see one person hitting "Need" on all the low end junk, that's all I hit the rest of the time.

2. GPU issues: What the heck are people running??? I've got 2 9800 GTX+s in SLi, as in, FIVE generations old, and I've never had any issues. Heck, I'm only running a Dual-core Core 2 (3.0 GHz) and 4GB of RAM. Games like APB, that floggs my machine. But STO??

and if you join an instance and someone says "please DON'T activate visual aura powers until im clear of range" and you do then its your fault not theirs

it isn't possible to get negative marks

and Skev free and without boffs , drones or other showing off we scored 32 marks last night with a team whose highest ranked member was a commander

because we communicated acted as a team and did not CHEAT
