Excuse me, I'd like to put a stop to you there.
While I'm certain that there are many who feel like you, because such is the nature of players to look upon things as so (and more than likely many of you come from grind-fest MMO), I'd challenge these accusations.
First of all, P2W? What do you mean by that?
If you meant Pay 2 Win, then...well, sir, you're being needlessly insultive.
As a matter of fact, I'm quite certain that I could pay for whatever gear Cryptic are selling and go PvP only to get my warp core handed to me in a quantum-compression gift bag.
There's quite a bit more to this game than simply "buying your way through" it.
At best, the store mitigate difficulties and expedite progression.
At worst, it robs the joy of enjoying things in their proper level and progression pace (which I'd argue is quite fast as it is) as well as cultivate a fool's ego.
As for Dilithium grind...grind? Where? When? How? WHY!?
One of the things I found most endearing about STO is that it has no grind.
Everything flows naturally. I never felt any need to grind anything. No pressure, either.
Why grind? For the love of gaming, why even consider such a horrendous subject in the scope of STO?
If you're so hellbent on dilithium, or whatever joys you believe it'll allow you to acquire, go ahead and buy some or 'grind', but that's only a nightmare scenario constructed out of your own self-imposed constraints. A personal demon of your own making.
Are you in a hurry somewhere? Are you dying? Is STO dying? Are Cryptic filing chapter 11?
What's the rush?
You got a **** guild that says "grind and get equipment like us or you're out"? Not really much of a guild or your friends, I guess.
There's no grind. No reason behind it. No purpose to it. If you feel the need to grind, dear sir, it is because you've erected yourself a mental prison. Seek the key. Liberate tute me ex infernis.
