Case in point - the annoying 'bring-you-out-of-cloak' bug. The one where you decloak whenever your bridge officer talks to you. Yeah, that's been complained about for over a year. Multiple threads about this one. But it turns out that in order to fix this, they had to individually adjust EVERY SINGLE MAP where a cloaked ship could go. This was not an easy fix despite what players thought. And to the devs credit, they got it done, and is set to be fixed for season 4.

Also, as has been explained multiple times in various threads, different devs work on different things. The costume people work on graphic designs for the costumes. They don't know anything about coding, and don't know how to fix bugs. But you always hear about "why are the devs making new costumes when there are so many bugs???? OMG. Please fix the bugs first!!!". Different teams for different tasks. That is basically why.
Your absolutely correct Latinumbar, maybe some of my comments were misdirected. The DEV's have done a LOT of great work, STO is one of the best looking MMO's out there. Trust me I have played them all! I waited many years for this game to be released. I watched it go from company, to company while it was being developed, and I was very pleased with the results once it was finally on the market. Being a big fan of Star Trek I was so worried that the game was not going to meet the Star Trek standards that we have all come to know. And I was not disappointed.

But I also feel that as paying patrons, we should keep voicing our opinions on what needs to be fixed or changed, keep the DEV's on their toes so to say. And if they listen, and they have been, the game will become better and better. But if they don't listen to what their customers are saying, then the game will go into ruin. Good example of that happening is Star Wars Galaxies, that game became a ghost town over night when they introduced the 'New Game Experience' (I think they called it). But that's a different story for another time.

But again, you are right Latinumbar, They have been doing a great job, and season 4 is going to be a great addition to the game, but lets not let the DEV's forget, that there are still things that we would like to see changed.
