The most frustrating thing in this game is trying to do some patrol and you get a few idiots on your team who deal zero damage, don't go to the objective, or even just sit AFK and make it so you have to deal with more mobs.
It also makes it near impossible to use stealth to complete objectives instead of just killing everything because the number of enemy ships doubles or triples if there is even a 2-player group in the instance.
So, how the heck do you do a patrol solo now? Playing with random idiots is taking the fun out of the game for me.
We all -kinda- worked together to complete one of the systems.
Then we all silently went our separate ways. Though apparently we were all still "teamed" up.
So a few minutes later I went to another system, and found out one of the people had just finished that system. Now it's empty for me too, and as soon as I warp in it says something to the effect of "congrats, you're done". I've tried dropping the team, leaving the system, and coming back. Still it thinks I'm done, and yet at the same time I didn't get credit for it in the mission window.
Is there a way to get a GM to reset it or something? So I can get the loot and kills and credit and all?
I had the same thing. I was auto grouped but always tried to say Hi upon entering the group. I was always met with blank chat. I guess players either don't know you can chat in team or don' feel the need to at lower levels. Then when the objective is complete, the player just zones out of the system but does not bother to leave the group. Or the always "required one player" that is always AFK and makes your mission that much harder.
