Let me start off by saying that I was one who thought they'd stay with this game for awhile. I even avoided the "doom and gloom" topics on the forums. I agree with OP. I apologize for having a part in having that one shot down (hugs to Jacob). The real issue for me (and ultimately the reason I quit) was that I wasn't getting what I paid for. I'm glad that there are people here who do feel that they are, but as for me (and for a lot of people who we are too quick to dismiss as naysayers) the biggest point of contention was and is that we're getting band-aids for something that needs surgery. I will gladly eat my words should the content expansion be game-wide. There have been many excellent posts by people far more eloquent than I on how to do that.

p.s. If you feel it necessary to say, "You don't know what you're talking about. You don't know MMO's," to me, so be it. I know what I've played and what kept my attention (and money), and have no purpose in measuring my e-manhood against yours.

no problem

i am just looking for a glimmer, fluff, excitement, quests, purples.....

Something that would keep me hooked till Season 2.

And the AGT Galaxy or even a real Tier 5 galaxy would make my tactical engineer resub for a month to try it out.
I loved it the galaxy, i shed tears when I hit RA.

Just popping in to point out I still agree and think it's part of a larger and more worrisome pattern.

It took them 5 weeks to catch up to and remove my ability to post on the Champions Online Forums after I cancelled my account. (And I cancelled my account 3 days prior to it's billing date running out).

It's their forum system. It sometimes doesn't catch up to the account changes properly.

Under the assumption that you do read the forums, you should know that the Galaxy X from "All Good Things" was something that people have wanted and asked for to be in the game. Another member sums this up more succintly:
Whats the point in a reward no one wants? I think it is the nature of a RAF system to give something as a reward desired by many people. Lets be honest, if they designed some new never before seen ship, no one would actually care to participate in the system. So i say threads like this are a big acknowledgement of cryptics marketing idea of the RAF program.

And for the record, i would also love to fly a Galaxy X.

I'm dubious on exactly how coveted the All Good Things Galaxy really is.

I think if the reward was the Excelsior ... the proverbial stuff would have hit the fan in a much much larger magnitude.

In fact, I think if ... Cryptic were to put a T5 Excelsior INTO the C-Store the same day the referral program gets put in ... this entire issue would get defused very very quickly.

New shinies. I know people like new shinies.

Why do people need a giant carrot to try and bring their friends into the game? Does Cryptic think that liking this game is so embarassing in its current state that such a bribe is needed? The people who would be most suited for this program have already tried, successfully or not. Anyone who wouldn't be recommending this game to their friends without the giant dangling carrot isn't exactly being encouraged to be honest about the game's rough spots that gave them misgivings in the first place.

As I have stated before I have no issues with the referal program. As someone else said, most subscribers is more money and thus more that can be used to pay employees and satistfy investors. This means that it will indeed help STO to grow.

I think it is a bit early to start a referal program; content will be required to keep people, after all.

I do feel a bit sorry for Cryptic. No matter what they say there is a group screaming at them. I suspect that bad weather is their fault in someone's mind.
