I'm no fan of most of the changes, but seriously is it really that bad?

First world problems indeed.
Find out.
Nah, seriously.
Create a Change.org Petition in support of the changes made implementing (not changed since) Season 7.

I'm curious.
I want to know how many people LOVE being financially abused.

The whole concept of this thread implies that the devs actually listen to the criticisms made by the general community. In general this does not appear to be the case. Have a look at a few of the suggestion threads, a good majority of the issues suggested nearly two years ago are still being suggested by a good number of players while the devs haven't even acknowledged that they have seen these suggestions, much less that they actually plan to work on them. The only things the devs seem interested in working on are quick cash grabs and limiting the ability of F2P players to get any of the endgame content by working for it. There hasn't been any significant free content released in ages, or at least none that are generally noticeable or alter game play in some noticeable fashion.

If it seems like I'm bashing the devs a lot, it's because maybe at least it will get some notice. While I understand they need to make a living and pay CBS for the rights to basically everything Star Trek, I really don't see a reason to make us pay for practically all new content. The worst part about all of this is that they are ruining a perfectly good game by aggravating their player base with cash grabs and a lack of real interest in their own game past extorting as much money as possible from it.

I would revert back just to stop the error message saying 32bit or die appearing when I log into the game

With all due respect, YOU hopped in and started name callin and trollin.

You wanna know what I'm tired of? People who feel they can come into a thread insult people they don't agree with, breaking forum rules.
Not that forum rules mean anything anymore.

A dev has already responded to this thread in the spirit it was intended.

I sympathize for your crippled situation, voporak, but I'm going to have to side with posts like this.

Vote: NO, as the game will be better in the long run with these changes... especially after the OP and all the others rage quit. Do you know how I know it will be better? Because they have been doing this for a long time and all of you cry babies have zero experience, except for Monday morning quarter backing like you own the place...
The thing is, I'm not too fond of the gear-procuring aspects of the reputation system, and the XP assignments are bleeding my Klingon alt's reserves dry due to a lack of marauding missions. But the fact that it's a STEADY(!!!) flow of materials with a GUARANTEED success is more than enough for me. Besides, they added an entire new sector block, and did an EXCELLENT job with New Romulus (now if more of the map could be climbed...)

Sorry but from my point of view, dev's listened to the community on a number of things that are in S7.

These two quotes are just QFTed.

It'll take far less time to correct any issues than to restart the game. Even more so since you guys would all lose your progress since the release, and I already dumped all my stuff into dilithium (which would have been a terrible idea if they reverted the changes).

Naw...I'm pretty happy with how it is.

There does appear to be some issues with getting kicked out and some occasionally slow load times, but I'm sure these will get addressed.

Is it all sunshine and rainbows? Nope, but that's okay.

Sure, I don't like feeling compelled or even a bit strong armed into spending money but then, I do prefer it to not having the game and make no mistake about it, there would be no game without the c-store or it'd be as it was before when there was precious little compelling content being added.

People whine way too much about grinding, you'd think they've never played an mmo before...

That said; there is nothing wrong with constructive criticism. For example, I'd like to see the requirements for making equipment via the reputation system dialed back a bit. If I've EARNED the right to make the gear, I shouldn't have to put in such a high amount of resources in both time and treasure to get it.

I actually think there is plenty of opportunity to make dilithium...What the heck are people doing with all that dilithium that they have 5 toons maxing out 8k per day? No doubt, working hard to wreck the game economy.

Nope. I like most of the changes. B'Tran getting nuked, all the Dailies rewards reduced, and the fact that EVERYTHING requires EC's now are the only things I'm truly up in arms about.

Everything else I'm happy with (Reputation), can survive (STF Dil Reduction), or are getting put back (STF Loot Boxes).

So I'm good. For now.

Hehe, I agree. Some of these people really act like they don't know the definition of "constructive criticism". In a sentence, tell the devs what they can do to make the game better. I saw a large number of bugs in S7 get fixed before the official launch. Like this one: http://marhawkman.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5jks3h

why? because people reported that they were broken. If it's an actual bug, it doesn't take a page long rant to get the devs to fix it......

Sadly some people seem to think ranting about whatever you dislike counts as constructive criticism. Well, it's criticism.... constructive? Not so much...
HAIL HYDRA!

Season 7 isn't prefect. BUT its pretty good over all.

The Dev's took hundreds of people's wants and blended it into this. It is not bad over all.
