1. Bad

2 I'd say personal life and the fact that far too many other free MMOs out have content available all the time.


3. Lack of any actual real content and inability/lack of interest to make new content.

I just accept that any new content that I can play on my terms will be in the Foundry.

It is my understanding from the latest STOked, all new content will be gated, and we may play it at Cryptic's convenience.

1. Is it good for the game or bad for the game? Horrible

2. Please briefly explain your answer to #1 I have little opportunity to play without a weekly calendar/schedule

3. Why do you think events are being gated? I can't think of a decent reason

Thanks everyone for replying, not quite unanimous but close enough. Cryptic if you are seeing this it would be very nice to have an official response as although this is just a straw poll I would imagine it fairly accurately reflects community opinion.

Please keep adding to this thread by all means guys.

1. Is it good for the game or bad for the game? - Very bad

2. Please briefly explain your answer to #1 - I shouldn't be forced by a GAME to make my schedule for RL.

3. Why do you think events are being gated? - Because they want to force us to play and if we don't, to pay...with mooneyh....for Cstore items.

Living in Scnadinavia, there is very few events I can join due to time zones. The ones I'm interested in are usually either during work hours, or they start during dinner or are too late in the evening.

3. Why do you think events are being gated?

I have no idea why they even thought time gated events were a good idea in the first place. I suspect that PWE is to blame here, not so much Cryptic. Things like the Deferi invasion I have never been able to play, due it being in a totally unsuitable time slot. The Deferi invasion should have been part of the Borg STF's that you can play at any given time.

Bad overall

2. Please briefly explain your answer to #1

Too limiting - although I loathe to sound like a broken record, players with limited online time don't/won't get a chance to play them. I don't, however, feel that this is a game-breaker - to be realistic, it's inconvenient, perhaps even downright annoying, especially considering the limited content at endgame, but I still feel it's more of an inconvenience than anything else.

3. Why do you think events are being gated?

Can only speculate and can only imagine that, in the case of the Vault event for example, it's an attempt at keeping those desperate to obtain the end-mission content coming back.
