# 40 Different Difficulty LeveLs?

- better handling of the UI

So the "easy" will become "boring". There is only one way to prevent that : different difficulty settings. They did it in COX and in Champions Online, they can do it in STO.

Cryptic, you want the admirals to be bored and leave ? Don't do it !
Cryptic, you want your experimented players still find the game challenging ? Do it.

Pretty simple.
Agreed. Soon, I will number myself among the above mentioned admirals. After I play all three character classes , I will need some kind of challenge to keep me awake. Coffee and Red Bulls can only do so much. Mental stimulation is the key to my addiction.
On that note I thought the difficulty at the end of closed beta was quite good. (ST 2.02 or whatever it was).

AND PLEASE NO NERFS!!! Just turn the heat up a bit, nerfs are always my number one reason for becoming discontent with a game.
