Yes that is exactly the problem. In many missions i can just warp to system and have, say 5/7 asteroids scanned already.. And while i try to find last two someone else already scans them and my mission is accomplished by doing nothing.
I really much would love to DO SOME OF THE WORK MYSELF
So is there an option to prevent this from happening or am i stuck in a game that others play for me?
If no such option exists, it is needed asap.
I do not mind beinmg in system with other players but i wish to scanb my roids myself dammit.
you can take away the ability to auto join a party to prevent yourself from going in on a half a completed mission. When your chatting in STO, there is a funny three people looking icon to the right of the chat... click on that... and not only can you do all these nifty emotes from there... but there is a settings for auto-joining parties.
User's shouldn't have to do that. The system should group you up with people also just starting the mission, and by starting I mean have just warped in. I see no reason for the system to group you up with a group that has been in there for 30 seconds or more.
