i would give them 50 EUR to start working on the Romulan faction.
(would give them even more if i knew it will really happen)
considering the whole WOW is for sale for less..
did you not see the last ask cryptic and i "Dstahl: While we would love to see a Romulan faction in the game, and players have told us they really want us to make it, we have not announced anything officially about this yet. We think it would be awesome and the team is excited that players want to see this faction fleshed out, but we agree that there are some issues to work out first about how it would be implemented and fit into the existing game. If we were to make a Romulan Faction, we would want them to have their own storyline and mission structure as well as their own ships so that it would feel different than playing a FED or KDF character. We?ll just have to wait and see!"
and will be reminding cryptic of the FACT that there are some 100's of EUR's on my account waiting to flesh out a romulan toon or 2, support a new fleet, starbase and embassy, and i would need DOFF's too... i think...
ill be deleting my old toons too, cause i honestly HATE my fed toons by now..
im an utopian and i like it. cause that is the kind of girl i am.
: impossibly ideal : visionary <recognised the utopian nature of his hopes ? C. S. Kilby>
I just don't see this game lasting much longer, regardless of how much money anyone throws at it. PWE doesn't deserve to be involved in this franchise.
Whether PWE is good for the game or the franchise is a debate that will never end due to it having no correct answer, but I doubt that the game is dying.
It's nowhere near as good as it could be, but money is flowing into the game, and Cryptic is finally trying some risky and potentially unpopular additions and changes (New Romulus, Reputation), and I believe that's a good sign.
What PWE's impact on STO's position isn't important, what does matter is that it is in a good enough position that Cryptic is willing to experiment with it. I think it's fair to say that the moment that Cryptic and PWE stop experimenting and start to "Play it Safe", THEN we panic.
Form me the only big Ticket item this is suitable for is a Faction. All the other stuff will come as the game is further fleshed out over time.
And I vote for a Ferengi faction!
I believe it would only be for big ticket items like Factions, more Adventure Zones like New Romulus, possibly redoing DS9, the Academies, Vulcan, Risa and various other social zones like that into the correct size/appearance, and giving them more Adventure Zone like qualities, it could even be used to redo the entire Genesis system and give us true exploration.
Prior to Season 7 I would have said New STF's .
After the back stabbing that Cryptic did to the STF community ... , ummm , no , not even for that .
I am losing STO with each new system based update and with each removal and editing of content .
I don't know how to save her from her systems obsessed masters who seek to control and monetize me more and more .
