I have only been on these forums for a little while now and there is one thing that I would like to talk about quick. This is by far one of the best MMOs I have ever played for many reasons, but it still has some bug to work out. I understand this and I am a very patient man. When my char flips out, I file a bug report. When the server crashes, I understand that it happens and it will get fixed.
The *****ing and whining has to stop, all I read is "Im paying good money to play" this and "why cant they fix the game before launch" that.
What 90% of the whiners don't understand is that:
1. STO has NOT launched yet, it will not launch till 020210.
2. You haven't been charged yet, and you wont be charged till 020210.
3. You are getting 4 FREE days of actual play time, its not cutting into your subscription, possibly more if you let Head Start expire before entering your retail key.
4. Head start more than likely was fully intended as an extended beta test before launch to work out the few remaining major bugs.
If Crypic didn't create Head Start for us, just think how bad the game would be when a million more players log on and complain. I couldn't even access the forum the first time it went down, it was like a DOS attack of ****ed off people.
All and all, everyone just needs to chill out, simmer down and help. We need to help the developers of STO find and fix the problems so that others wont have to suffer when the big day comes.
P.S. Enemy NPCs can fire though solid objects (like from the opposite side of an asteroid) but you cannot fire back until you are within line of sight. a fix would be nice soon
