I had an idea to just simply list everyone's points and views on the game in a civilized fashion, see what people like about the game, see what people dislike. See if we can give Cryptic enough player feedback in the hopes of making improvements to the game, after all - we play the game, we pay for the game. Why shouldn't we have some feedback in the hopes we can make the game better for everyone.

Your multiple choice test is slightly confusing, but I guess I'll pick [Space reserved for answer] on all the questions.

How long did it take you to reach Rear Admiral 5?, do you have multiple Rear Admirals or are presently levelling an alt?

My first Rear Admiral, took me around 4 days to reach Rear Admiral 5, Yes I rushed it and I do regret looking back. I have another Rear Admiral, and I'm also currently levelling an alt.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Did you enjoy the journey to Rear Admiral 5?, what was the high points and low points?

Yes, I enjoyed the journey to Ra5. Some of the high points was playing missions like the Trouble with Tribble, I loved that mission! Low points? Cage of Fire!! So many times yelling at my BoFFs to follow me or stop trying to commit suicide, some ways it was almost funny I guess.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you currently part-take in regular PvP, Fleet actions or Raidisodes? If so, what are you views on them? What do you think could be improved, and what issues need to be addressed?

I don't do PvP yet, waiting for more character slots so I can make a Klingon. I occasionally do Fleet Actions and I've done the new Raidisode, my views on the fleet actions is simple - keep out extreme high level players or make level brackets for the actions. As for Raidisodes, we've only seen one so far and I thought it felt extremely rushed and frustrating, possibly though, with careful planning I think the raidisodes could be definately a good think though.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you prefer space combat or ground combat? If so, why? What makes that particular style of combat a better player experience for you over the other?

Tough one, I like both space and ground. Maybe space combat is slightly easier at the current skill cap, because of issues with ground mobs having one shot abilities. I think ground needs work done but once its balanced, I think it could be great.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pick one current issue in-game effects you the most, what changes do you think would benefit the game overall and why?

One issue, perhaps the current skill cap. Last minute changes are always never a good thing, fixes to the skill cap probably would benefit the game in so many ways.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you think since launch, Star Trek Online has lived up to your expectations? Do you think you will still be playing in six months time?

More or less, new MMos are finicky at best. As for myself playing in six months time? Maybe, hopefully I will.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What future changes would you like to see the most in Star Trek Online?

More ship choices, more clothing options and a more diverse skill system.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, what was the last MMo you played before joining Star Trek Online, why did you quit the last MMo and join this community?

World of ********, I got bored with it. I'm a trekky, I've been waiting for a Star Trek MMo since 2006 when I first heard about STo being in development.

How long did it take you to reach Rear Admiral 5?, do you have multiple Rear Admirals or are presently levelling an alt?

I have yet to reach that rank. I am in no hurry to do so.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Did you enjoy the journey to Rear Admiral 5?, what was the high points and low points?

Not applicable

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you currently part-take in regular PvP, Fleet actions or Raidisodes? If so, what are you views on them? What do you think could be improved, and what issues need to be addressed?

I do not take part in any content that requires or strongly encourages grouping with people I am not familiar with, nor do I PvP. As such I cannopt speak to this.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you prefer space combat or ground combat? If so, why? What makes that particular style of combat a better player experience for you over the other?

I find the need for combat at almost every turn to be distasteful, however I will say ground combat at least seems to be more immersive and have many more tactical options.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pick one current issue in-game effects you the most, what changes do you think would benefit the game overall and why?

This is not Star Trek. It is a simple shooter with a Star Trek skin and I find it very difficult to immerse myself properly given this. I believe more effort put into missions that challenge my mind instead of my spacebar would be in order.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you think since launch, Star Trek Online has lived up to your expectations? Do you think you will still be playing in six months time?

It absolutely has not lived up to my expectations. Having said that I will most likely be playing in six months if only because of friends and the hope that it will evolve in a direction I will find satisfactory.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What future changes would you like to see the most in Star Trek Online?

See above.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, what was the last MMo you played before joining Star Trek Online, why did you quit the last MMo and join this community?

Not counting Champions Online, I was playing both City Of Heroes and Star Wars Galaxies. I remained in CoH only because of a highly developed social community, and SWG because it was, in fact returning slowley to pre-NGE gameplay. Too little too late, I'm afraid, since everyone I had known and enjoyed RPing with was gone.

Been playing her since Headstart with 2 downtimes for fiance to catch up but currently at Captain 5. I also have a Lieutenant Commander 2 and a Lieutenant 2.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Did you enjoy the journey to Rear Admiral 5?, what was the high points and low points?

I'll let you know when I get there in the future. I am loving the game so far. I hate the insta deaths you can't avoid in the DSE's but without the Death Penality its livable.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you currently part-take in regular PvP, Fleet actions or Raidisodes? If so, what are you views on them? What do you think could be improved, and what issues need to be addressed?

I will never do PvP and Fleet Actions at present if I need to for a mission. Raidisodes will most likely be when I actually get to those levels

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you prefer space combat or ground combat? If so, why? What makes that particular style of combat a better player experience for you over the other?

I prefer non combat but between the two choices ground combat is better, primarily because I heal my group while letting the away team deal with the mobs with my help

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pick one current issue in-game effects you the most, what changes do you think would benefit the game overall and why?

I need more non combat options. At present I am limited to repeating anomaly scans and abandoned station missions when my fill of violence has been reached.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you think since launch, Star Trek Online has lived up to your expectations? Do you think you will still be playing in six months time?

I had no expectations for Star Trek except that I would have fun playing. I am having fun and if they implement more variety to exploration and patrolling missions I am sure I will be here for 6 months or even longer.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What future changes would you like to see the most in Star Trek Online?

My signature has links to my threads for enhancing exploration and patrol missions.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, what was the last MMo you played before joining Star Trek Online, why did you quit the last MMo and join this community?

I played **** before this. We knew it was PvP orientated but thought we would try it out as a break from the 4-5 year boredom itch we were getting from WoW. After several months though the constant pvp stopping us from levelling got too much and we have pretty much left it behind. I still go back to say hi and maybe have fun crafting but thats pretty much it. I still also play WoW but not as a gaming factor but due to the addon programming I do there.

I never got there. Gave up at Commander 5.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Did you enjoy the journey to Rear Admiral 5?, what was the high points and low points?

No. The whole game was a low point.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you currently part-take in regular PvP, Fleet actions or Raidisodes? If so, what are you views on them? What do you think could be improved, and what issues need to be addressed?

No.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you prefer space combat or ground combat? If so, why? What makes that particular style of combat a better player experience for you over the other?

Space. Ground combat is like being drunk.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pick one current issue in-game effects you the most, what changes do you think would benefit the game overall and why?

The game's rubbish. Make it not rubbish.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you think since launch, Star Trek Online has lived up to your expectations? Do you think you will still be playing in six months time?

No, it has totally failed.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What future changes would you like to see the most in Star Trek Online?

Everything. Make it all not suck.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, what was the last MMo you played before joining Star Trek Online, why did you quit the last MMo and join this community?

This was my first one. And likely my last.

52 hours /played, in about four days. I only have the one, but I have a Klingon alt to level 9, an Tac/Escort alt also to level 9, and a Science/Science alt to level 32, which is whom I'm concentrating on at the moment.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Did you enjoy the journey to Rear Admiral 5?, what was the high points and low points?

Absolutely enjoyed it. The closest thing to a low point is actually a high point for me - The Fire Caves. My BO's got stuck before even getting into the first room, so I solo'ed, quite literally, the entire map, all the way up to the boss. It proved a moderate challenge, and I enjoyed it immensely.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you currently part-take in regular PvP, Fleet actions or Raidisodes? If so, what are you views on them? What do you think could be improved, and what issues need to be addressed?

I don't do PvP or Fleet actions, but I love the Special Task Force mission we have. It is a bit buggy, namely with controls relating to respawn, but those will be fixed.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you prefer space combat or ground combat? If so, why? What makes that particular style of combat a better player experience for you over the other?

I really have no preference, as I like them both a lot.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pick one current issue in-game effects you the most, what changes do you think would benefit the game overall and why?

There needs to be more content added. We know there is new content for RADM and more on the way, but there needs to be more for the journey to get there, too.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you think since launch, Star Trek Online has lived up to your expectations? Do you think you will still be playing in six months time?

I will play this game until they shut it down. Period. I came into this game expecting nothing more than fun, and having to deal with all of the normal launch-related issues. Those expectations are met.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What future changes would you like to see the most in Star Trek Online?

Anything related to more content - more STF's, more missions to get to the STF's, more Klingon PvE, a bit of sector-space PvP in certain areas - voluntary by instance, of course, and more factions with actual PvE and PvP options.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, what was the last MMo you played before joining Star Trek Online, why did you quit the last MMo and join this community?

The last one that I played - and still play - is Guild Wars. I didn't leave, and pick it up every once in a while. However, with my main, I've done everything that game offers. I did almost all of it in two weeks, mostly solo. I came to STO because I've been following STO for over a decade, and was excited that it was actually going to be released - lo, that someone had actually done some real programming, not just artwork.

How long did it take you to reach Rear Admiral 5?, do you have multiple Rear Admirals or are presently levelling an alt?

Not there yet taking my time

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Did you enjoy the journey to Rear Admiral 5?, what was the high points and low points?

I have a RA1 and so far I have enjoyed it alot in fact I have to others I am leveling now.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you currently part-take in regular PvP, Fleet actions or Raidisodes? If so, what are you views on them? What do you think could be improved, and what issues need to be addressed?

I take part in pvp but not raids. I would like the space pvp to last longer some how but other than that it is fun.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you prefer space combat or ground combat? If so, why? What makes that particular style of combat a better player experience for you over the other?

A hard choice but I guess ground as it lasts longer and seems to have more depth and planning. As for pvp Ground is also better I think for the same reasons.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pick one current issue in-game effects you the most, what changes do you think would benefit the game overall and why?

The ability to play either single or as a group is what has allowed me to play however i want. I think the biggest benefit that could be added would be more in depth storys as well as pvp content and some day I hope to see the romulans

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you think since launch, Star Trek Online has lived up to your expectations? Do you think you will still be playing in six months time?

Yes it has. They have been quick to resolve bugs and I look forward to the new content. I expect to still be playing in six months depending on what the devs do.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What future changes would you like to see the most in Star Trek Online?

More in depth story lines, choices, and pve content for klingons. Shortly after this the romulans as a playable faction. Also more complex pvp maps and goals.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, what was the last MMo you played before joining Star Trek Online, why did you quit the last MMo and join this community?

Lineage 2 was the best one I played before this and played for over two years. I quit because I simply dont have the time for that kind of game any more as well as the massive inflation caused by gold farmers.

I'm still only halfway through Captain.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Did you enjoy the journey to Rear Admiral 5?, what was the high points and low points?

I'm enjoying the trip so far. I love the graphics. I don't really love the carnage. I expect to blow up a ship here and there and occasionally vaporize ground enemies, but the huge amount of slaughter isn't very Federation-like. Some alternatives to mass death would be nice.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you currently part-take in regular PvP, Fleet actions or Raidisodes? If so, what are you views on them? What do you think could be improved, and what issues need to be addressed?

No, I don't.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you prefer space combat or ground combat? If so, why? What makes that particular style of combat a better player experience for you over the other?

I enjoy both. The space combat is great, but I don't get to see my character. The ground combat could use some work, but it's still fun for me, and I get to see my character.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pick one current issue in-game effects you the most, what changes do you think would benefit the game overall and why?

If you're going to throw all those anomalies at me, please make the crafting worthwhile. I've given up on it. The minor upgrades to very limited equipment items aren't worth the inventory space the data items take up, or the trip to Memory Alpha. Allow us to create a wide variety of items rather than upgrading a few existing items. Also, let us know (in the game) what it takes to get to the next crafting contact. I haven't gotten past the first contact, and I don't plan to at this point.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you think since launch, Star Trek Online has lived up to your expectations? Do you think you will still be playing in six months time?

Yes to both. I bought the game knowing that I that the current content can keep me going for a couple years.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What future changes would you like to see the most in Star Trek Online?

PvE content for Klingons and Romulans. Also, although I don't expect to ever see it (Cryptic being cryptic), I would greatly like to see much better skill/ability descriptions in the game. Plus, more boot options for the Klingon faction.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, what was the last MMo you played before joining Star Trek Online, why did you quit the last MMo and join this community?

I am still playing City of Heroes, which is my all time favorite game. I don't plan to leave it.
