Where is Jackalope?
 
can't find his user profile or any of his posts. Can someone point me to where I can find one of his posts or to his profile?

has he left STO?

The CO pvp dev commented once a month, in a single post. Maybe two if we were lucky.


So if you're looking for communication, don't get your hopes up.

That's his profile.

So he'll probably be around during March to assure us he totally plays Klingon and Klingon content is TOTALLY on the way. Then he'll do the same thing in April....then May repeat as necessary until server shuts down or he leaves Cryptic.

I have to say I don't understand Cryptic's hesitance in wanting to have discussions with the community.

It's like they're the local chef and rather than ask us if we would like baked beans as a side dish, they just show up with it one day and act surprised when they find out that none of us like baked beans. Could'a saved a lot of time and effort by just giving us a heads up in the design phase.

Cryptic acctually draws most of their ideas for continued design from the community. That's probaply the reason why their games are so badly balanced, they acctually listen to the millions of "I use whatever makes me win" jerks who just want to keep their easy mode.

Yeah, I miss his reassurances that he really plays Klingons and that they're a priority to him.

Post Go-live with stable servers...my guess is a vacation to recharge.

Quite simple. It's their business model. We are not nor shall we likely ever be a priority. The Feds get listened to we do not. Look at all the content the Feds got. Look at the requests that were almost immediately said yes to. When's the last time they did something for thr Klingons that was a fix exclusive for Klingons that actually mattered? How many nerf calls has Cryptic listened to from us? How many from the Feds?

Companies are many things stupid is not one of them. Consumers need to realize this. It's not that they are baffled by the idea that they should ask their customers what they want as a side dish. It's that they don't have to. They know the majority might hate beans but they'll go and keep on throwing money at the chef to eat them just as long as the manager comes out every few months and assures you that you are a valued customer and they are listening to your ideas.

Cryptic knows exactly what they are doing. It's worked since we invented currency and it will work till the Second Coming.
