# 1 My Distaste for Infected!
03-06-2010, 11:20 PM
im probally in the minory on this, but feel like i have to voice my opinion about Infected. i just played Infected (well i quit it) and im sad to say this is the first thing about Star Trek Online i Hate! It't not fun, enjoyable, and just plain boring when you keep dying every 30 seconds then respawn only to die again in 30 seconds. I played with a team of 5 and we all kept dying. There was even a part in the mission that if one of us died, we would get stuck behind a force field, and the ONLY way to get it down was for all other members to die and respawn behind it, and only then it would be lowered, but that would reset the progress we did in that part! I know i will never play it again, and i just feel all the hype about it was for nothing! i just needed to state how i feel.

Sounds like you are doing this with a PuG. Join a Fleet and run it with someone who knows what they are doing. With an organized group, Infected should take no more than two hours to run. My group took down the final room in under six minutes tonight. It was quite epic.

The thing people use to do all the time in old mmo like vanilla everquest, before the power gamers with their step-by-step strategy guides, vent required, and minimum raid attendance showed up screaming how great they are for beating the hardest things on planet earth, digital critters.

This is very true . . . I'm glad that there are developers willing to cater to people who actually try to make lasting friends and relationships with the people they meet in these Online worlds. Isn't that the point of these games? To bring people together for the common purpose of accomplishing a goal? Establish a mark in the world, help one another advance in the game and actually have fun?

I'm very happy that Cryptic created a game that is very casual in nature, but for those looking for a challenge and an opportunity to practice true teamwork, then this is the answer. I don't think there is anything wrong with providing challenging content that works best for a tight group of friends to work through. Ventrillo access really just helps subvert the time it takes to type instructions. However, Vent should never really be mandatory, but I understand the sentiment.

The problem with most "guilds" in most games that I have played is they don't care at all about most of their members. They do things that the "core" members want and you MIGHT get some help in the process but I wouldn't hold my breath. And there are other guilds that are just a joke to get into: fill out a questionnaire, write an essay on why you would be a asset to the guild, show up to several events etc. I play a game to get away from stuff like that.
I can understand its probably to weed out the kids always begging for money and items and cussing out other members when they don't get the help they want but I don't know...
I would like to find a good guild that helps all of its members and doesn't require a big fancy resume to join but such a thing does not exist.
Which is why I am glad most things in this game can be done "solo".
So go ahead call me bitter, if it makes you feel so important.
I do somewhat enjoy the SPACE pvp in this game, even tho a few abilities are heavily used while most are all but ignored. spam rsp fbp vm much?
