Last night, ISE PUG and CSE PUG back to back.

ISE: Finished with 5 minutes remaining, absolutely no communication between anybody until the post-match "good job"s. It was like everyone was sharing the same brain. I was truly impressed

Queued up for CSE right afterwards, and short of a few pointers to a relative newbie, everyone knew what we had to do, and we finished the optional with 2 minutes to spare.

Prolly the best PUG experience I've had in months...

My "best" isn't so much my most successful run as it me just me smug. Though of few of my resurrected STF have set records.

I can't tell you how many time I've seen a group make a utter mess of thing and give up or rage quit within the first 15min ... Then the server add more people who actually stay and enjoy trying. Then go on to finish the round.

I've three maned STFs more then once before (in less then a hour in that what the cynics are thinking ) by simple virtue I don't give up, and trusting the people that stayed will bite down, finish the round, and learn from there mistakes. Those are always the sweetest games.

Earlier today, did ISE PUG. me in my Excelsior-R testing my new set of 7 MK XII Phaser [Borg] BA's, 3 other cruisers and an escort. Started good but someone popped before 2 other gen were 50%. Good focus on the task at hand by all. Saved the left.

Right side, same. Popped early but yet again, the team focused on what needed to get done and saved the right.

Finally, several strayed too close a few times, but overall, well done on the finally.

Well done all. Not bad for a bunch a Puggers.

Was in KAS STF, when it came to taking out the scimitar, I /tell everyone to keep atleast 5 Km from the ship.. everyone actually kept to that!! Donatra didn't get to cloak even once!! Till that happened I never thought it was even possible in a pug!!!
We still live!!!!! Hahahahahahahahaa! We live and we will conquer!!!!! Hahahahahaaha!

Ive had that a few times in the past, its a nice feeling when you get her not to cloak.

From what i have seen its the "bait agro" ship that has to stay more than 6k away from her to stop her from cloaking - im normally the agro ship luckily - can anyone confirm that

Did CSE for the first time (I've done it on normal a few times already). We lost the optional because the timer ran out, but I'm okay with that. It was just people shooting down ships instead of focusing on the launch bays, and we finished the main mission just fine.

No one really said anything. We just followed each other around to each objective and finished fairly quickly. People even repaired their ships as soon as they were damaged.

Not the best run ever, but decent given the horror stories I've heard about it.

Best KA ground experience ever over the weekend.

The borg were, of course, bugged due to the transporting issue that has been going on lately, but I didn't know it at the time. Anyway, 5 ppl started, as soon as the "disappearing borg" routine started, 2 ppl left. 1 more joined. finally, everyone had left except myself, and a KDF engineer, who I wish I could remember the name of, as the player was excellent. We managed to finally hunt down all of the transporting borg, and clear the room. At this point, I asked him if we should bother trying to continue with only 2 ppl, he said it's possible as he "knows a few tricks" so I figured why not?

Anyway, I took the console room, and he handled the other stuff. He obviously had the bomber kit for engineers, as he had no problem taking out the "pylons" (can't remember the proper term for them atm) and eventually we managed to kill all 6 of them, at which point we went to fight Tosk.

Here's where it gets fun... as soon as we started on tosk, ALL of the "support drones" teleported to the console room, and left Tosk by himself! we spent the next half hour or so killing individual drones when they transported back in, and taking shots at Tosk between him transporting. At one point, KDF engineer extrordinaire was in the console room shooting Drones, and I would continue shooting them when they transported back to the Tosk spawn spot. We played Tosk ping-pong for awhile, and finally managed to kill him. KDF Eng got his Prototype armor, and wow, did he deserve it!

So 2 ppl managed to finish KAGE, and I have never felt such a sense of accomplishment from that mission. To whoever the KDF Eng was, Thanks!

Best experience? Easy.

I had already got the MK XII MACO set and I had spent a great deal of time doing CGE over and over (and over again) to get the last part of the Omega MK XII set. While trying to get the gun, I had been alternating between CGE and IGE in order to get my last optional, and had been on a few good teams, getting 7-9/10 of the Starbase crew (this mixed in with lots and lots of terrible teams who fail at the first room).

One day, I log on, queue up for CGE and after a near perfect run, I get the gun. All I had left to do was the optional on IGE. I queue. I beam in and find myself, on Starbase 82 with four guys who are all from the same fleet (not mine), dressed in bright pink robes, jumping up and down and playing around with the bubble and fireworks guns all the way to the first group of Borg. I promptly change to my tholian robes in order to fit in, which they seem to appreciate. "Are we trying for the optional?" I ask, to which I recieve a cryptic "maybe".

The forcefield opens and ten minutes later, I am beaming up to my ship, optional in hand, asking myself if I had queued up for some kind of non-existent 'Easy' mode. No stopping, no sniping, just a constant destructive run through the map. I have never had a run like it and probably never will again.

You know who you are, thanks so much guys!!

i usually only play elite stfs but at least once a day, i do cure space on normal. i have a good space build and did this mission with a friend alone (3 spectators as we wished) + optional. if you see me, drop a message. cure space normal is really funny and can be done in no time.
What ? Calaway.

Ran KASE last night with a group from EliteSTF. We laid the plan out right away... one person would take probes/spheres from both sides (I think he sat near the time gate itself). The other four would do left and then right. Need on everything.

Worked like a charm too. As soon as one person popped a gen and the guardian cube warped in, the other three jumped it. One of them got down to around 70-80% before I even got my weapons on it.

Left goes down fast. Right takes a little longer, but we still got the optional.

Donatra shows up and is dead within a couple minutes. She never got the chance to cloak.

Not a record breaker by any means, but it was pretty fantastic.

I'll probably never PUG again, lol.
