Hello, I see so much complaining on the forums or comments that follow announcements that I thought I'd get on and just say THANK YOU to the whole Cryptic team for creating this awesome game, and to Perfect World Entertainment for providing it for free! No matter how you like to play or what you like/don't like about it, I'm sure most here would agree it's pretty awesome. And one isn't even required to pay one cent. From this trekkie, thank you.
(Anyone else who wants to join with me is welcome!
Yes, thank you. I enjoyed this game from launch, but with the addition of featured episodes, the DOff system, the fleet advancement system, and all the new content you're working on now, it has become my favorite game. Thank you all so much for your hard work. Please try not to mind all the negativity on the forums. Your efforts are very much appreciated by plenty of people who aren't complaining.
I enjoy the game as well. Any minor issues that we may see arise are nothing compared to how enjoyable this game is. I am a Trek fan, and am thrilled to see it alive and well here even though we do not have a current TV series. This gives us our Trek fix.
In addition, I feel it needs to be said that there's differing levels of disagreement which hopefully will not get muddied up in all the angst-flinging.
There are justified concerns, and plenty of people are voicing those as politely as they can because they know that they are more likely to be considered with respect if they show respect and open-mindedness in kind. I pray that kind of feedback is reaching the right pointed ear(s) at Cryptic and isn't becoming increasingly blotted out from the cloud of numbing vitriol, sensationalism and anger of others who haven't yet discovered how civil discourse works.
This is a back and forth between developers and their community, and even though we might not always agree, and tempers flare easily from passionate fans of the game, props and respect are due regardless for all the time, effort and patience those of you at Cryptic have put into this game. Thank you for that, particularly the patience in sifting through the sea of rant-posts to find genuine concerns you can properly address.
