I was thinking the same thing myself. She didn't seem to be too much into the idea to begin with.

She decided by herself to give it another shot and is working on a character right now.

The real point of this thread stands: The UI in the character creator needs some work.. either a confirmation button, or the ability to go back to that screen without losing progress.

It's a design oversight.

... just saying.
Exactly.

Yes, she fully admits to me she may not like it. All I want from her is an honest chance.

I don't blame her for rage-quitting when that happened, I would be super angry too.

This isn't about her though, it's about the creator needing some work -_-

I miss that game x.x

Sorry for calling you an idiot earlier, I was just mad at the situation.

I still recommend giving her my original advice.

Other than that, I'll agree that the current system needs work, at the very least the return of the undo button.

It might be helpful to picture Picard as Cryptic and the Borg as PWE.

Yeah why the hell did they remove undo? That's so infuriating.

Sadly the changes to the tailor were meant to make things easier..... yeah.... sometimes I wonder if the devs aren't secretly passive aggressive toward STO. I'd like to think that's the case at least, otherwise they're just massively incompetent.

Me too. I still catch myself going into my browsers favorites list looking for the CoH forums.

No problem, there are times when I deserve to be called it and much worse so I don't take it personally.


And I've lost count of the times I've wondered if Cryptic took every common sense thing they learned about how to make an awesome MMO like CoH and threw it out the window when they made CO, STO, and NW.

Better say our farewells and shut down the servers, I don't think the game will ever recover from this catastrophic loss.

If you want to see what Cryptic can really do to screw up a character creator, go over to CO. If it's your first time there, you won't even see about eighty percent of what you can do with your toon until you've gotten to tenth level - and even then, you have to either hear about it from another player, or stumble across it accidentally in the Tailor, because it's not like they let you know there are more options.

And kassy, nothing I said had anything to do with relationships, just one person's relative level of interest in the game. My wife, for example, made one character, and has never played again - because the game just doesn't grab her the way it does me. No big deal.
