Was just in a Fleet Red Alert, and when we got to the final wave with the Named Ship, 3 people leave the event.
I find this very unacceptable, because they can re-enter the queue and earn more Fleet Marks, while leaving the rest of us having to face a cooldown. And being rewarded with LESS fleet marks.
Between this and AFKers, I personally am really growing tired of these Fleet Events. And when you don't have fleetmates on at the same time to do it as a team, it leaves you up a creek without a paddle.
Before we whine too much, consider the large increase in DC's and other weird occurrences in game recently. I was penalized myself for leaving STF, except i never even got in. After I clicked engage and the countdown finished I was still on the map where I started. Yet, the que told me I was banned for leaving.
Thats not a good idea, to put it mildly. You will understand when you get into a fleet alert with a lvl 3 Miranda and a rainbow cruiser.
No one has been in with a level 3 miranda in a long long time (lvl 5 is the lowest)
as to rainbows ill take a rainbow beam cruiser over a "mint" escort
Escorts with plasma weapons are a liability (there you are swooping low over the command ship to counter measures its brains out and suddenly your on fire because the Escort opened up)
I often work along side one rainbow ship (when last seen running polarons and tet fore and tet and phasers aft) but all his tac consoles are to enhance his main strike weapon ie the Tricobalt torps he mounts both ends
Since much of this is classified as exploiting, I can't go into details. But needless to say is that right this very moment with the current Fleet Event, I had to leave several Events becasue of abusers.
One Moocher doing nothing.
Most people not spawning to avoid participation.
People leaving in Events to do accolades, leaving people who are hard working to come out with less accolades or failing the event (like Fleet Red Alert).
Come on Cryptic, it's time to put your foot down. These abuses are really detracting my interest in participating in STO. And making it harder for small fleets (who don't have enough people to participate in private queues) to actually earn Fleet Marks.
And given with LoR, you took out Nukara, which only leaves Defera as the only other way to earn Fleet Marks.
Wait a tic...LoR is taking Nukara out?
I like Nukara! Lame!!
Nukara events will no longer offer Tholian Boxes but Tholian Marks instead. Wasn't aware that the Fleet Mark reward had been removed or that there were plans to remove it when the new Rep system is implemented.
What is more frightening: to know that the path is infinite, or to walk that path alone?
IMO they shouldn't remove the Fleet Mark reward. It's on of the few ground missions to earn Fleet Marks and my fleet usually does the Nukara missions after we do the Defera dailies. I enjoy forming and running fleet ground parties for these ground missions, I would hate to see part of that experience removed.
Maybe we can convince them to let it reward Fleet and Tholian marks. I can't see any harm in that.
