Then again, think about writing in general.

People used to write letters - some typed - computers became the norm - almost everybody typed - they might only "write" when signing a check or signing a credit card receipt - then more online banking and bill pay - check cards and entering a pin - etc, etc, etc.

Heck, there are many school districts in the US that are no longer teaching cursive writing.

I kept thinking about it. It tended to come down to the following:

Had not even thought about it.
Thought about it.
Wanted it.
Needed it.
Could not live without it.

-AND-

Could wait for it.
Would wait for it.
Should not have to wait for it.

but cursive writing has no purpose in the real world except as a signature.


a friend of mine told me that the entire countrys history text books are determined by who places the largest order.

so basically 1 or 2 states determine what the entire country learns about in history.

weird eh?

I wonder why the "Want to improve in PvP" thread is still around, as it has absolutely nothing to do with STO?

Seriously, could people just stop the spamming, please?

But my point is, why leave that game?

Go do whatever it is you do, I got a Fleet to run, new players to train on the way to PvP, PvE Elite, Doffs, Fleet Actions, Starbase, New Romulus... Heck I could go on. I'm willing to wait for it to get better. So shoo. MWO and those Pandas are waiting on ya
I ain't leaving. I get my PvP on over at "Voldemort" then hang out in STO to get my PvE on. I think that says a lot.

Thanks guys and keep up the good fight!

Ps MWO has its own set if issues.
On another note I really hope that star citizen takes off.
The people is why I do not leave STO. We have some great sub-communities and I think that underscores what Cryptic has done best, inter-player communications. "Voldemort" does not have that. You have to be in a match to use chat right now and then you can only talk to those in that match with you.

I agree on the second point as well. For example that crit shot bug can really mess up a good match before it even starts. Still I have a great time just dreaming up builds for "Voldemort" just like I used to in STO before the OP madness of F2P.

I'm just looking out for you guys before you guys blow out a vein or something.. Some of the TRH guys have gotten very angry too. I know it can get, you should of heard me when I first found out about SN Doffs.

I'm not saying be nice because they'll be changes. I'm saying, there won't be changes so there's no sense getting upset over it. It's unfortunate, but it is what it is. Wasting time on these forums, I don't know but I feel like I should buddy up and tell you guys as friends that you're wasting your own time.

Unless... We take a different approach? Not on the forums obviously, but a different avenue of directly contacting someone at their head offices? Like target calling this calls for a target change perhaps? Bran has 4 extends on him + rsp + ablative + vesta bs + steamrunner + miracle worker + ... etc.. lol.

Brainstorm it?
Is this a levi3 sockpuppet? What I highlighted reminds me so much of that players old KDF troll threads. With a little bit of paraphrasing it went something to the effect of...

"I'm a good KDF player. I use my many KDF toons to grind DL. But you KDF die hards should give up 'cause when it comes to faction content it comes down to the numbers and 12% is not enough to develop for. I'm sympathetic to the KDF cause, but it just won't happen. Give up."

He was a real pain to talk to, a regular Hanoi Hannah. Don't be that way please.



Man I can only live on promises for so long Brandon. I wanna be rewarded for playing this game they way I want to. I know you are not responsible but you are the go between. I would love to have new and interesting PvP experiences.

As I have said in the past, years ago, I would love to have a persistent war between the KDF and UFP that has an actual story driven by the outcomes of the PvP matches. Bad news is from what I understand "Voldemort" is gonna do their best give me this, amongst five factions no less, and I did not have to even ask them for it.
If you are a pickle in a pickle jar you know every pickle's different, sort of, but really they're all just pickles...
They taste the same.

I am more active in STO PvP than many self-proclaimed PvPers (who mostly play and advertise other games) that are being rude to the forum host and other users, and actually are violating criminal laws of various countries regularily on these forums.

And stop the spamming and sock-puppeting, please.

As the thread is no longer on topic, and as I am sure you've all read the OP, I'm shutting this down now. I appreciate that you all have toned down the "off topic" posts and moved them to Ten Forward.

Cheers,
