One question: WHY??? Don't freeps realize that EC is nothing but a giant death trap? With the few freeps that try to get kills there, there's no grouping. Less than half a dozen freeps - who are in small groups or solo - and a handful of mindless NPCs have no chance against a craid that has coordination. Especially with a craid that has a surplus of heals. With a +140% infamy gain from DoF and keep buffs and maybe more from store accelerators we're paving the road nice and easy for creeps to rank up. Doesn't help that they're - in a way - farming us. Freeps just come back for a second serving of the hangman's noose even when they know they don't stand a snowball's chance in hell.
Call me a noob, NPC hugger, star hugger, or whatever, I've heard it all. But wouldn't it be much easier for freeps to fight in TR where you have multiple levels and 3x as many NPCs? In TR even 6 people solo have a better chance of getting kills against a 12+ man craid.
So basically all that I'm saying is freeps, please don't let creeps farm you in EC. You don't get any kills, you die a lot, creeps get a butt load of infamy, and quite frankly, it's a waste of time.
