I think puting Team Queues (or TFOs) in Episode Arc is very bad idea, what do you think?

Ok, so I looked close on Klingon War and I saw 2 TFOs there… and 1 more in Romulan Mystery…
I personally think it's a bad, bad idea.

Now I know they are skippable (at least the first 2), but I still need to finish them if I want to complete the Arcs.
While for now the matching is passable, it may happen that the less popular TFOs will have problem with matching team and start.
If that happens on recruit event (ok, someone could start late and stays behind the others, which will play the next Arc and their TFOs),
then it may be hard to get reward for finishing full Episode Arc.
That's my opinion, what you think about it?

Yeah, placing TFOs in Episode Arcs is bad idea.

    I believe it could make the TFOs better, at least, as it gets new players used to them. Specifically, if it helps people's understandings that they have no business playing Advanced or Elite queues until their gear is good enough.

    Seriously. I'm sick of playing Adv/Elite missions with others who die constantly because they're using under-powered gear (or at least knowing what ship/character builds are)!

    It's the WORST idea.​​

    Aside from Recruits, who gets rewards for finishing an arc? Is that something new for this season?

    Considering the prior Episode showed the player exactly what they were doing in the Starbase 1 TFO, this is 100% the right idea to do providing they do episodes the 'feature' the TFO in 1 player format!

    You aren't forced to do them, so no harm there. And if it brings a few more people into the queues, great. But again, no requirement to do them, so it makes no difference.

    I don't like it.

    I don't care as long as I can skip them. Since I never do team stuff.

    STFs (TFOs, whatever) in episode arcs has it's ups and downs, but mostly I'm annoyed with all the pop-up nonsense every time I log on. Right in the middle of DOFFing, or Admiralty, etc...

    Seriously. I'm beginning to hope that Admiral Quinn dies publicly of a persistent and embarrassing itch.

    Options menu, "Disable mission auto-hail", done.

    Thanks for that! It's going to save me some mental irregularity :)

    Forcing me to do queues isn't going to make me like them. And they have sweet frig all to do with the story arc. This update has been the definition of: It's not broke. FIX IT!
