They are grinding away to the slave of their fleet's Starbase and their Reputation system that demands their time on top of everything else. They might have a favorite ship whose layout does not measure up to the lofty standards of an elite STF crew. they maybe finicalically strapped in real life for time and money and cannot get around to grinding millions of dilithium or giving hundreds of dollars to the game in order to advance stuff.
However, I looked through all of these issues in the game, all these shortcomings, all these twist and turns. I looked and I found a way out. There is a way to win this game. After that, all the DPS and the power grinding and all the time-gated stuff doesn't matter anymore.
Here it is... Brace yourselves...
JUST HAVE FUN!
YUP! That is how you win STO. You win the game when you are having fun. The specifics of it will vary from person to person, but the endgame for everyone is having fun.
You like science vessels? HAVE AT IT!
You want to be DPSy? GO FOR IT!
You want to Roleplay and ignore the war? AWESOME!
You want to be the best PVPer you can? YOU CAN DO IT!
You want to fly your favorite ship no matter what? PICK ONE AND GO!
You like to sit in ESD and tell gorn jokes? GORN AHEAD! YOU WON'T GET IN TRIBBLE!
agree with you! everyone should do whatever they want in the game as long as their choice doesn't intervine with others gameplay!

The Devs nerf and tweak stuff to preserve the endgame ("having fun")... FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED! The ships act differently to give variety to the game, SO THAT MORE THAN ONE TYPE OF PERSON CAN GET TO THE ENDGAME! Whether or not you win or lose a specific STF, event, or a PVP match doesn't matter, as long as you and other involved are having fun, you are all winning!
So, Shut up! Stop trolling people for their choice in class or ship. Stop flaming the devs for changing something that needed to be changed. Sit down, shut up, and get back to that endgame grind.. Having fun!
It's just a game. Have fun.
how can you have fun when you fail an STF?
asking for nerfing something is not trolling nor flaming! is the same situation as yours! you just asked for indulgence for those who play this game for shining lights and cute dresses, in the same way people asking for some balance in the game! i understand your frustration, but you have to understand ours too (we who play this game as an mmo not as a star trek game - i'm not a huge star trek fan i just like space mmos) and sometimes there are items and abilities that shouldn't be that powerfull or it should be more powerfull and they need some adjustments from the devs.
trolling people for their choice in class or ship is a bad attitude, but from your post i think most of the time you get confused. most of advanced players usually give advices if they see people doing low dps or not comply with tactics. those players are not trolling, they just want to help.
ofcourse there are some who start to swear and act like children, but i think most of advaced players are nice guys and whould help if the other person wants.
If we all live in boxes doesn't mean that my box is the same color as yours
