Wow some venomious replies! Sorry fellows. I love this game, don't get me wrong, but did expect some magic wand to make it live client vs the buggy Beta, I guess not. Iam not flaming or trolling. I had some major issues logging in. Then when I made my character, some features were missing. (zoom as I mentioned) And uniform choices seemed sparse. (the same amount from beta) I just figured they would have patched it up with complete content. Perhaps they are waiting for the 2nd?
Its not just you. The forums clearly show its not just you.
The Fanboys I'm afraid are still providing retreating fire.
I dont see anything but people complaining about
1. The steam thing, which has nothing to do with cryptic
2. The borg thing, which is a single problem
3. Stuff about the various bonuses that will not be available until the 2nd, which sucks but it was already known long ago.
4. Stuff about the character wipe, which again was already known long ago
There are a hand full of posts complaining about login problems, but i have to suspect its just them because ive loged into the game several times since this morning and made a few characters and did some zone transitions and i see no problem.
The majority of negative posts seem to be baseless 'i told you so' posts, as though if enough of them are made they will become the only evidence required to back themselves up.
The game has all sorts of problems and things i dont like about it, cruiser turning, skillpoint cap, etc. But this was a smooth release and i dont see anything disastrous about it at all.
The only thing I've noted is for me, it's far more laggy with more rubber banding than I ever encountered in the open beta. Also, for the first time I'm encountering and issue that prevents me from completing patrol missions.
