I have been playing since open beta and really enjoy the game. I do not want to sit and whine about every little thing wrong with a game that has been out a month, but I have hit level cap and am bored as hell. It took me three times as long to get to level 55 in WoW. Just sayn'. The ship stuff is great, but there needs to more to it. Ground combat works, mostly. The best advice I can give you to get me back, more variety. I think this has been a really good start to something that could be huge, and I am really glad I spent the time and money on this game to this point, but I will not be renewing for April and will not be back until something really piques my interest.
The Thing I dislike most about EVE is what passes for PvP! I mean by some definitions it does fit what is considered to be "PvP". But what it really amounts to is gank squads at choke points on the map. So it's completely lacking any form of "balance", or fair "competition". Which makes it just an opportunity for gang minded individuals to grief other players.
STO doesn't need ANY of that type of "Gameplay" (and I'm using that term very loosely!) to succeed. In fact what might be more conducive to success might be to eliminate Any player who wants STO to be "like EVE".
I would just like for my ship to go as fast as it should, if I have a ship that can only go warp 8 then it should go warp 8. If i have a ship like the discovery i should be able to go warp 9.995. am i wrong?
