Stop hiding in your private playground and acting like because you don't have an issue, no one else can.
I play with real life friends, but we are more than happy to team up with other players.

Feel free to add me to your friends list ( @jockey79 ) - we do use Teamspeak, HOWEVER, if we team up with someone who is not on TS or does not want to use TS, we do not mind typing our chat as we say it ( done that more than once ) so you know what is going on.

[Edit] As far as I know, there is "ESTF","Elite-STF", "EliteSTF" chat channels, but I have never used them - so as for the quality of those channels I cannot comment - but they are there for anyone to use

Either way, I have access to a computer and the internet - so do not take my comments personally, I could be in the middle of hating everyone equally

Elite stf is fine, but it can also be deserted.

As for the AFK leechers, the only current option I know of is just leave and take the 1 hour penalty to spite the afk leech .

Some people think it is harsh to ask to not play with inexperienced players or ill equipped players. That is what the NORMAL setting is for so that these people can learn what to do. I spent countless hours learning how to do things on normal before attempting elite setting because I did not want to be considered a piker. There is something called common courtesty which seems to be sorely lacking in the STO community. I see it everyday in zone chats and warzones. There needs to be an option to avoid protagonists AFK'ers and people you choose to disassociate with. Now for those of you who get upset with this idea remember most of us have precious little time to game because we have families and jobs and other obligations. The last thing we need or want is the aggravation of some jerk costing us the good reward in a STF because they deliberately screw things up. As for the guy spouting about channels and friends not everybody has a regular schedual and your friends may not always be on at the same time. So you have to play with a PUG from time to time. All I am asking for is the opportunity to ignore and no longer have contact with people with no common courtesy. Attitude goes a long way in this game and the ignore goes both ways if you don't like having someone bark orders put them on your ignore and the problem is solved. This solution allows like minded and like styled players to team up with each other more often and helps to avoid conflicts. If you already have this solved for yourself great why are you complaining?The rest of us do not and seek a viable alternative to dealing with the pakleds of STO. I am merely trying to suggest a peaceful solution to a irritating problem that is fair to everyone.

Now then for those who think this is cruel how many tens of thousands of players play STO? If you keep getting ignored and finding your wait times growing then stop and ask yourself what are you doing to piss off so many people? This system is fair because it allows for consequenses for abusive behavior. Some people do not wish to learn how to play and when you try to make contact to offer them advice you get the screw you post or some other moronic attitude. Frankly my time is too precious to waste on someone who wants to act like that.

All I want to see is a simple but effective way to deal with this sort of nuisance. Since there is no council or other governing body interested in handling complaints this solves the he said she said instantly. The ignore button needs to be configured to facilitate a better gaming experience.

Stop being an insistent jerk. You have tried to pick arguments with me before.

I am not responding to this thread to advertise a particular chat channel. I don't want to be confused as trying to further my own agenda. It's not private. I am not hiding. The channel I am a member of (it's NOT EliteSTF) has over 3k members, shouldn't be difficult to find.

I am not acting. I am stating that there IS NO issue, flat out.

First: wallotext

Second: I am 'spouting off' the solutions to your perceived problem that are already available to you. I DO NOT want the developers to waste their time trying to 'fix' this 'problem'.

Third: Like I pointed out to a smarmy fellow in an earlier post, I am not a child or a simpleton. It is not news to me that real life comes before/intrudes on game time. AGAIN: the soultions are there, and easy to find. And if your time is so tight, precious and valuable why are you trying to squeeze in a STF? Those by nature can vary wildly in time to complete depending on the group, AKFers or no. And get out of here with 'forced to PUG'. That is so silly I am not going to bother pointing out why.

In short, everything you asked for in your little novel you already have available to you. The developers do not need to add code to the game and waste time and resources because you can't/won't find them.

I report them to the GM. Let them be annoyed by my participation in the system.

I will keep doing so until I am given a better option.

Other than that, no big deal. 'Tis only a game.

I like the original idea, those on my ignore list cant be teamed with me...sounds good! even though I have like half a million spammers and trolls on there, I have spent WELL over 1,200 hours in less then a year playing this game...(I have no life)? lol But the trend I have seen is that those people in my list don't seem to last in the long run of the game I have not seen them online in ages. says a lot about the type who troll and spam doesn't it?

I like this method

As of now I have like 30 or so AFKers on my ignore list and it takes a long time for me to run into them again. So I can?t see how this can be abused.

Even if a group of 4 should ignore the 5th player just for kicks it would only limit that one player to miss out on just 4 queues IF by chance those 4 players just happen to queue for the same exact event at the exact time you did, which would be a REALLY BIG IF.

So I can see this working.
