PublicEliteStf for all your omega mark and dilith needs....

/channel_join PublicEliteStf, Quality groups and optionals waiting!



Rules:

Well we don't have a lot actually...but simple guidelines are as follows :

1. NO ABUSIVE BEHAVIOUR OR HEAVY TROLLING

Common sense says no abusive behaviour or heavy trolling but we all know that right? Being abusive puts people off using the channel and less people means less games... think about it, you might only end up back in the pug queues, and we don't want that. After that everything goes.... within reason... so I ask that you respect that for the good of the channel and your own games.

2. ONCE YOU KNOW THE OPTIONALS!!

Please make sure you know the optionals before joining games and make your best effort to accomplish them, work as team!

Please do not join games unless you know the missions. While some members are open to showing new guys the ropes, training should really be done in fleet before coming to channel. That being said I can't stop you... so if you do decide to come on channel please at least check out the fine post below, detailing all STF's missions and how best to run them.

http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=250898


The only exception I believe being Cure Space Elite , CSE, where MRRMLL is much quicker, safer and preferable and can be easily explained as :

Middle probes, right probes, right cube, middle cube, left probes/cube, kill ALL raptors before middle cube....and take the bops at the cube you're working on.

If its you're first time, let people know and watch chat, follow the other guys lead and you'll all get along fine.

When in doubt ask on channel. For those of you who do know what you're doing we simply ask that if anybody is on that is a bit lost, help them out, it lessens the chances of getting bad games for all in future.


3. PLEASE DO NOT GRIEF/ARGUE ON CHANNEL ABOUT A POOR RUN

No STF channel is perfect and the odd time bad games might occur, such is life,move on.
These simple things can mean we all get good games without drama and arguments.

4. NO SELLING ON CHANNEL

Pretty Self Explainatory.... Take it to the exchange


To ensure the channel runs smooth and stays that way we have a 3 STRIKE POLICY in place and details can be found at :

http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...1&postcount=24


This policy will not affect the vast majority of you who enjoy the channel without issue on a regular basis so don't worry!
But aware for those that do enjoy causing trouble you will not be doing so for very long...


CHANNEL ADMINS :

OWNER


@wildchild8 :
Mail with any problems, complaints or appeals WITH link shortened screens.

As the channel has grown I have taken on admins to make sure the channel continues to run smoothly. Operators DO have the ability to mute users and issue strikes but will only do so for good reason as detailed in the strike policy above. Please respect the Operators as you would myself, we're a nice bunch and nobody gets muted without good reason.

OPERATORS:

@pokersmith1
@BrokenMirror
@Gorefeast
@eliotl
@sonulinu



Make sure to create private matches when making groups, and establish the plan with EVERYONE in match window before starting the game otherwise you might as well just pug.

If looking for a game please create games, don't wait for someone else too, take the initiative if you see no one is running the game you want.

Create a game : Missons tab >> PVE >> Create Private >>

Announce with LF$M - GAME - pick an inv >> right click whoever types your inv and add to challenge match , see easy... eg LFM- CSE- Huzzah! You can't use that one though its mine....

FEEL FREE TO MAKE GROUPS FOR FLEET MARKS/EVENTS AND ROMULAN MARK MISSIONS ALSO








Well folks I leave it there and hope to see you all on channel. If you like the channel please feel free to recommend to your fleets, more guys we got on the more stfs we can get going regularly yeooow!





On one more important note : The channel is open and public to all and will stay that way, I might be repeating myself but please don't join games unless you know the missions and optionals. We're a good bunch and like to keep that way, excessive trolling and abuse on channel cannot be tolerated and will be dealt with.

MUTING POLICY


Thanks again to all already on channel for making it what it is and keeping games running!!

Enjoy and good hunting!

Please for the love of Gut, kill the Neg and the Raptor before moving on to the next Cube! There is nothing worst than a defender who is taking all three lanes who is all of a sudden tractored and bum ***** by a rogue Neg and Raptor.

I always try and call the target, so everyone gets the idea, get him before you get iso'd!!
also on KASE, for donatra... none of this 5km stuff! get in behind her and DPS her!! even if she cloaks she'll die much quicker and remember she cant shoot you if you're behind her, simples! at 5km you do half damage and cant stay out of her arc as easy.

Is this for the people who can't follow the rules and behave on the "Real" EliteSTF channel?

Scary as it maybe, agreed. The Fleet I belong to has a strict no pulling people from PublicEliteSTF to fill spaces when we have several runs going at the same time. Mostly the officers run members who reach lvl 50 through a couple of STF and then try to get them into EliteSTF channel. But there seems to have been a major drop off of players that the EliteSTF channel is no longer as active as it once was. There is also a more "Elite" STF channel which shall remain nameless where some of the best of the best hang, but this one is even deader then dead. So PublicEliteSTF has become a fall back.

PublicEliteSTF seems to be filled with people who believe they know things better then the person running/leading the STF and go do their own thing, like in CSE not following MRRML or screwing off and just flying around shooting BoPs.

I have to disagree, i run a lot on games on channel, CSE being my most regular game ( no CD <3 ) and ive never come across people doing as you say. We have a 90-95% success rate in general and as with all stf channels the odd game is going to go awry. but in general majority of people know the missions and run them very well. Establishing all roles and making sure everyone knows the plan in match window before starting is key, and you can spot a noob a mile away from there and choose to run with them or not. Thankfully we dont get alot and again this is in the minority.

Lol, ill tell you what I do love though, guys that claim to be elite, no matter what channel they're on, may know the missions well and then claim not to be able to mind probes or kang cause A) im in a sci ship B) carrier C) dont have the dps.... if you dont have the dps to mind probes or kang you're pretty much no use on anything else and are essentially on a free ride. These are guys id have more issue with then noobs who once told the tricks of the trade can excel at stfs. Theres no reason any sci ship/carrier/crusier sci/tac/engi or otherwise cant hit a minimum 3k dps in stfs ( enough to be useful to missions or mind probes kang etc) other then BAD BUILDS.

Now we all know Elitestf exists. But not everyone has access for a multitude of reasons, PublicEliteSTF caters to these folk and those that like a more chilled out social atmosphere while grinding, so there's no reason why two quality channels can't exist. We have guys on both channels and some that will prefare one over the other. Quality is same on both, so CHOICE is the deciding factor, different flavours of the same dead borg Hope to see you all on channel!!

I did not mean to insult PublicEliteSTF but a majority of bad experiences my fleet and I have had was pulling people from that channel.

No no at all, you're more then welcome to your take on it bad games happen, but my point being, people only remember the bad games. If someone runs 20 games and 2 are dodgy, they'll only remember and talk about the two dodgy ones.....

It is a fact of life, bad games will happen and have happened on any and all stf channels i've ever used. But I'd prefer to focus on the vast majority of games that go off regularly without a hitch.
Fact is eitherwways, using any stf channel automatically drastically increases your chances of good games over Pugging. *shudder* as you can establish roles before starting or spot the noob.

You say the majority of bad experiences your fleet has had, have come off PublicEliteSTF? This in itself does not mean the majority of games you've run on channel have been bad, only that you feel a few games have a good awry a little moreso then other channels.

While I havent had any bad experiences myself except maybe the odd bad build I also know the channel (nor any) is not perfect, but it has shown that an open public channel can still provide high quality games on a regular basis and comparable to other private channels. This is from feedback from guys that are on channel regulars. Private channels can not guarantee quality no more then we can, and can only ensure anybody abusive or not following rules can be kicked. We have less rules of course, and are more relaxed on chat policies but can still mute to enforce antiabusive behaviour when needs be, thankfully even with over 900 people subscribed we have not had to deal with an extreme cases in this way.

I digress!! And its a pity if a few of your runs on channel were not the best, bum luck i guess... Hope you get good runs where ever you're getting guys from anyways!

Wanted to chime in on this thread.

Bad runs will happen, no matter what channel you use. Since coming to this channel I have met a good group of guys and even gals on here who are dedicated in having a good solid run of estf's. I myself rarely get a bad run with the group from this channel, but it has happened. Like wild said, bad builds or the odd "noob" that comes into the group expecting to not be noticed. Or even yet, people are tired and are not in there 100% game zone. But majority of the regulars in this channel will gladly give some tips on building yourself into the ultimate weapon.

There are some great guides out there, and even look on youtube for some solid clips of runs and how to see how they actually work. Just make sure you run your normals before doing Elites. Rushing to elite level expecting to pull off a miracle rarely happens when your just starting out, theres alot to do with them.

This is a great channel, and i suggest anyone who is wanting to have a great elite run to utilize this channel, because its defenetly better then puggin it. Trust me.
