It seems such a shame that this game needs soooo much tweaked in order to play it, with any reasonable degree of continued playability, for so many users out there.
Personally i live in Australia, i don't have the most up-to-date system (its ok though) and im not that tech savvy.
I do enjoy playing games online. it is a good way for me to unwind from business life etc.
Every game i have pllayed online has worked like a charm 'out of the box' so to speak, with one noteable exception, that is like this one and needs me to tweak this, and that, and then check this, or that. That game was Champions online,
Like i said it's a shame. i liked the Champions concept, i love Star Trek.
