Dear Devs, thanks for making such a great game that people have nothing better to do but go on forums and complain about having to watch a 3 minute cutscene that one time.

Totally agree with this, because I have a lot of alts and I paid for all but the first two character slots so having to watch the same cutscenes over and over and over again means I would be making A LOT of sandwiches, which is what one poster said I should do during the Romulan Rep cutscene....

I have I think 16 characters, can you imagine how much I would LOVE to be able to skip cutscenes now? I don't want to go make a sandwich every time I see a cutscene I have already watched 15 times....

If people complain, it is because they give a crap. It is when they STOP complaining that things are going horribly wrong. US Navy officer leadership use to teach their ensigns and junior Lieutenats these little tidbits.

Well, sort of. People who complain care about SOMETHING, not necessarily things that benefit the group.
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

I am trying to decide if OP is joking or not. You know that cutscene is only 2 minutes long right? Go take a leak or grab a snack, refill a water bottle... It's not rocket science.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

No joke.

Having no choice but to start the Rom Rep at 50, and having no choice but to sit through cutscenes in general, is no fun. It's not rocket science. Since it's not a big deal it should be a piece of cake for the devs to change the Rom Rep intro to trigger the first time we beam down to New Romulus instead of the way it works now.

You (and others) are saying to get up and leave the computer for a little while because of an STO mechanic that no one finds fun. That's a problem. Yeah, there are other STO issues that are more pressing, but believe me, the little stuff adds up. I've got costume slots I can't use, the warp out animation on the ship I use is jacked up, the animation on the weapons I use don't work half the time, my powers don't activate without clicking on them 2-3 times (even with a keybind), etc, etc. All that stuff combines to make STO less and less fun to play, and it makes STO look third rate. That's a problem, too.

If you're cool with dealing with all that stuff, good for you. But if people don't say 'hey devs, how about doing X instead of Y?' then they'll think everyone is cool with Y and they'll keep doing Y.

So instead of saying 'lolwut? go take a leak, noob!' how about saying '+1 for choice in STO'?

I agree many things in the game are annoying. The cut scene should at least be changed for Romulan/Reman toons. It is stupid to see the same cut scene once you have already run the romulan story. I doubt they will fix it with season 8 coming I doubt even more that they will fix any current bugs.

I have a long list of bugs: My Auto Refine upon login don't work. Integral Remodulator don't work.

MVA escort pet is broken even with set focus the vectors do whatever they want.

Maps take way to long to load not counting the server busy and disconnects.

Foundry maps take way to long to load not counting server busy and disconnects.


General LAG LAG LAG and instability. Every time they patch the game somehow something gets broken.


I Could keep going but my pillow is calling my name.
