# 1 No plan STF's
02-08-2013, 03:13 PM
What is with this rash of starting up a Elite STF and not even making a plan?

Was just in a CSE where one guy goes RML, And doesn't even mention who is on Kang. Low and behold I look not a soul is on Kang. I'm in a vesta there is only so much I can do. The night before I enter a KASE not a word of a plan I go to cover the right probes and no one even covers left probes.

I mean this is in the Elite STF channel what is this lame crap. It's not hard people and it takes less than a min to make a plan.

I'm am going to screenshot everything from here on out. You don't make a plan I'm going to start reporting this crap.

Maybe, I don't know, you could make a plan? Maybe ask "Who's on Kang" at the very least?

Worse come to worse, you can just put those people on ignore and not see there invites in the channel.

And what good exactly does reporting do for this situation? Nobody's breaking any rules. A lack of team cohesion doesn't necessitate reporting to GM's that the mission is failing.

Just get a new/better team or fly with fleetmates.

When optionals fail then yes it does matter. I did ask "Whose on kang?" nothing from anyone then boom he launches. Then u watch 4 wet naps go off to their own merry way and your sitting here in a WTF moment why are these people in the Elite STf channel when they can't take 5 secs to at least make a plan to cover the Kang. I'm sorry but if you make the Instance and you're either not inept enough or just a a-hole not to communicate to the others then yeah you don't need to be on the channel. I was in one tonight about 2 hours ago. Nothing is said when the team is filled. I said so whose on kang, Poof off we go and what do I see 4 ppl flying off to never ever land 2 going right 2 going mid. I'm sorry that you all think this is a bad joke but this is some bull ^*&% for the EliteSTF channel.

Ditto, it's just a game, that's why you have the option of forming a private match w/ your friends...

I tend to agree on this...

It's not like there are alot of options on how to do these missions anyways (Cryptic is not good at thinking about multiple slolutions).

At this point, almost every active player knows how to do these missions, and even IF there are one or two who don't, the rest usually have the firepower and expirience to keep the map going.
My name may say "PWE member", but I will never be.

OP, by now most of us have done hundreds if not THOUSANDS of ESTFs. Believe me, if even half the players are on the ball and can keep aware of their surroundings (ie. help HEAL the Kang when it takes damage) there is little to worry about. Of course, sometimes you get teams with cruisers that run away from spheres, escorts that can't take down a single probe before it reaches the time gate, and sci vessels that use Grav wells/repulsors to PUSH ALONG enemy NPCs and help them get to where they want to get to faster.

Too many players like that in a group and no amount of planning will suffice. Luckily many of them grow as players and improve. One can hardly blame them though, its not like the game actually teaches you anything about how to fly a ship!
