Fortunately like all PvP games STO has plenty of players whom would rather blaim thier poor performance on the other players, ships, consoles, etc than themselves.
Something must be wrong with the game, the other players ships are stronger, the other players weapons are stronger, the other player is just OP...... One gets tired of hearing the same complaints over and over again when a whole PvP community sits ready to help, including an out of game training school.
None of that can be helpful. One must go to the threads and *****. Why? Becuase it cant be my fault. That would be just silly.
Except for ive never seen a game this gear reliant. Ive been pvping in various games for better than a decade. (google dionysis swg for my old SWG kill counts, for example) Im a noob only to this game itself (join date is legit). I am shocked at how simple the game mechanics are themselves, but at how insane the gear gap from "freshly 50" to "pvp ready" really is.
I should never have an oh my god moment like I did when i switched out my dilithium store weapons for fleet weapons. The sheer difference was insane. What is with THAT?

Money grab? Honestly though, even the Devs have said STO is the largest gear,item, stuff filled game they have seen built.
And yes it has caused all sortz of problems.
That is because, everything Cryptic does is rushed, its not tested before its implemented into the game because they are not interested in making a quality MMO, this is just a cash cow for Neverwinter. The problem is quite clear in the last year, its obviously that Neverwinter is intended to replace STO in the same way that STO took precedence and made development work stop on Champions Online.
Cryptic are very much the company to abandon a project as soon as it starts not meeting their projected income for the month. I don't think they made this game to be a fun MMO and appeal to Star Trek fans but instead, when the game began to fail, they switched it to F2P and milked it for all the money they can.
They knew the Romulans would generate income regardless, so they released it early and with all the bugs notified in the Beta still in the release because they don't really care... they just want your cash.
Companies that work like that are the closest thing to amoral evil. I'm sure if Cryptic could, they would have call centers in third world countries and pay their employees a penny a day.
Thats the problem with commercial projects over fan generated ones. Then, in a total twist of irony, they try to make out that people with negative opinions of their buisness model are Flaming/Trolling/Hate speech. This is just a way to suppress opinion... under the guise of protecting the community from "trolls".

I am sick and tired of hearing FEDS complain about KDF ships and BOP.
when FEDS comes in arena with that 5 weapon foe ship you does not hear KDF complying. NO we find a way to kill it Tac team, Tractor beam and EP2S or that elite hanger pets spam the yellowstones grav well and warp plasma we use APO and hazard emitters and evasive so stop complying find a way to deal with it and play the game have fun.
u get half the universal consoles we have just off the xchange when we have to buy C-store ships for them
Most everything that hits holodeck goes through tribble first for testing. Even LoR had a closed and open test phase before it hit holodeck.
Bugs get found and often not fixed before release due to time constraints, many because not enough people test things when the option is present.
Some even refuse to test.
If you have problems in surviving or doing dmg, you're doing something wrong, my cruiser can pull 13k dps in some ocasions, with minium of 8k dps in pve content, it is also super tanky and it can easily survive pounding from 3 players as long as subnuke doesnt come by
Say the word, it saves the world. CUUCUUMBEER! "-With slight partigen with it."
Proud member or DPS-800 "-We kill dem mines with our scitter turrets."
As a fanbase we KDF need to avoid reverting back to our year one and two states of perpetual anger over our place in STOs history.
We where treated incredibly poorly by Cryptic and fed fan alike back then.
That time is over and the KDF has more than ever before. Its time to let old wounds heal and just talk about the scars from time to time.
