Nothing against that, but any player would actually need to buy a ship or equipment to actually have a chance for loot.

similar loot like fleet actions and scaled dilithium: 5th only gets 190 dilithium, first 1100. that would certainly keep people out of elite stfs that are either leeching or just not capable enough to do them.

I?m not talking about he who does the most damage gets the loot, that would be ridiculous, what I?m saying is the STF should require a minimum set amount of damage to qualify.

Each map has a minimum amount of NPCs and each NPC requires a specific amount of damage to defeat them, if you add up all the damage required to complete the mission that number can be used to calculate the minimum amount of damage a player needs to qualify for the reward. Like a player must do like 5, 10, or 15% of the total damage available to qualify.

Can you honestly believe that 1 player cannot do at least 10% damage on average.

Thing is something needs to be done.

Those idiots who sit there afk and their only action is to "need" on every last drop.

Those trolls who enter elites with no gear about mk V or lower because "they cba to get geared"

Sure the wow system got abused but the system we have heres getting abused by the leeches who don't help//wont help and ninja all they can.

Those leeches and ninjas are what we call thugs and punks in the station, they grow up to be behind bars or 6 feet under. They want everything handed to them.

I dunno - I wrote about 23981693871298371209837129083712098 ticket about this topic, never got a replay, and even see the same guys over and over again - so obviously, they don't get a time ban or anything else.

so question: WHEN ARE WILL WE BE ABLE TO KICK SUCH LEECHERS ?

I know - we still would fail the bonus goal - but at least these ppl wouldn't get anything out of their action.

I am done with this - i can't stand it any longer - DO SOMETHING! NOW!

sorry - but right now I am really pissed

Relax, no one cares that you feel the need to cry on the forums about a video game.. If they want to "leech" then let them, i for one do not care, i do not cry out to the GM's via a ticket.

It is really sad that people playing a VIDEO GAME will cry so many tears for it. They in some way paid their way, they can do and play how the want too. So again I tell you to relax.

Reporting fellow players in a fake world of entertainment is something I never understood. If you can not handle the pressure, do not go on the interwebz, it is not for you.

yeah no doubt, but people would come in, deal that 10%, and go AFK after that. what you have is afk escorts that participated 5 minutes of the game and or joined in again in phase 2. there will always be abuse of the system no matter what is implemented.

the cure space and khitomer have no fixed amount of enemies btw.

i still find your idea great, but as i said, nothing will solve the leecher problem forever. It is inherent to the PUG system. Every game with public queues has it. It is also not the first time i read about this "deal x amount of damage to qualify for loot" was already suggested in january this year.

Actually...If you refuse to use the multiple avenues at your disposal to avoid this sort of thing, you have no right to complain.

You get what you get with pugs and bad team mates are the price you sometimes pay for getting a quick stf.

Best solution to OPs problem? Don't pug. There are literally DOZENS of ESTF channels that contain competent and sometimes exceptionally good players. There are also griefers in there, but we know most of them, and we will warn you about them.

Don't let your ignorance force a system that can be VERY easily abused by someone having a bad day. Just join an ESTF channel, and then actually enjoy competent team-mates. But if you choose to pug, you do so at your own risk.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

# 28 Vote - Kick Option
12-09-2012, 10:08 PM
Since "Season Seven", I've seen more and more of these AFK'r players that just sit in your team, collect the end reward and contribute nothing in actually completing the mission.

Can we please have a team "Vote to Kick Player from Team" option added to the game. It was a small problem before Seven, now it's a daily thing.

(Yes, I know, Private Queues. Not the point..)
