I've been pretty quiet in the forums for a while, and I've been giving a lot of benefit of the doubt to the F2P changes, but as we get closer to the switchover I've got to chime in with the shared unhappiness of what they are turning the game into.
GRINDING IS NOT FUN
GRINDING IS REALLY NOT FUN
I PLAY THIS GAME TO HAVE FUN
What's the point of all this "improvement" if by simply setting all the values for gear way too high only the 24/7 players will ever get it?
I'm a casual player, and it seems like they want to make sure I will not enjoy the endgame grind.
Yet another lifetime subscriber who is starting to regret that decision.
You are the one they hope spends 1000 dollars a year in the C-store. I said it before ill say it again, the C-store will ruin this game F2P or not. Almost Everything can be had with the use of real world money. Cryptic is hiding it by calling it their so called "time based currency". but its jsut a lame cover for trying to get everyone to spend money in the C-store.
Damn shame too, this game could have been the game to lift the "Star Trek" curse on video games.
