That's because they're NOT like WoW factions. They are based of canon military organisations. They're not supposed to be like WoW factions, they're supposed to be like Starfleet and the KDF.

I don't. The faction (since that's the word you used) setup in STO seems perfectly fine for the setting it's being applied to. Considering the problems the game has, i think doing a total revamp of something as significant as the player organisational level would be a waste of time and far too big a risk of having it blow up in their faces if they get it wrong.

Honestly, that's not even close imo and to add, why do we want a system that merely copies another game anyways? No wonder this industry is stagnant when it comes to gameplay. Noone wants to do anything but copy the big games with their gameplay.

Radically redesigning the game at this point is not going to help it. All it's going to do is try and rebuild a core element of the game that whilst not spectacularly interesting doesn't actually need fixing. It's going to take time away from development of content that frankly, this game cannot afford to do, you only have to look at the forums or read zone in game to see that.
