No other alternate out there.
Most enjoyable game out there.
Friends in game.
And as Soph said, sure it could be better but so could any game.

Believe it or not, I pvp in STO because I really enjoy it. Even with all of its faults, it's the most enjoyable pvp game I've played since StarCraft: BroodWar, and that's saying a lot considering that game was pretty much perfect. This game may be far from perfect, but it's still super fun!

Honestly, that game may look pretty, but it certainly doesn't look like it's going very far with the pricing levels they have now. If I'm spending $10 a month it better not take me more than 10 months of casual play to earn what the dude that paid 100 up front got day 1. That is the major problem with STO. This whole P2W thing doesn't work for increasing the number of customers.

There were easily twice the number of players when I left just after Season 1 came out two years ago. There's a reason why, and it isn't just because of the bugs in the game. If they listened to some of the veterans, their income would increase.

Possible answers:
Too much invested financially in it to leave. Certainly true.
Too much invested time wise to leave it. Yep, totally.
Love the way STO is right now. No, but as i havent had to grind a SINGLE time since S7 came out in order to have enough marks to be half way through both Rep Systems, it could be much worse.
I believe what the devs are promising will happen. I don't think anyones that daft.
No other alternate out there. I think you, MT, Mav & Co have made it all too clear on choice.
PvP is only 1 part of the game I enjoy. PVP is the only thing in STO that excites me, but i enjoy the new PVE missions, i enjoy the old ones, and i enjoy doing them with friends and fleetmates.
Most enjoyable game out there. No, its not for me. But its a love/hate relationship.
Friends in game. All the way. Lake a any social connection was why i got bored and went to other games in 2010, friendships are what keep me here now.

Friends and Time, my motivation to pew is at an all time low, even when i m in game.

I came here for the IP and the mix of IP and friendships is what keeps me here, to a certain extend.

I have zero trust in Crytpic to improve PvP without them firing and hiring a number of people pretty high up in chain. Their records are abysmal....it won't happen.

At this point in time, hearing Cryptic representatives talk about anything PvP related, is simply infuriating. Never thought i could feel that way about a company and its staff.

To be fair, it's the same people that have been butchering it all along.

Seriously I have no idea why people are still optimistic about a possible bright star in the future of this game related to PvP, as seeing how they actually act on the latest game breaking exploit that has been taking place in the game which affects PvP'ers the most, its not really a sign of Cryptic finally changing the tide and finally do something.

Like any other decent MMO would have brought out a hotfix the next day, it takes weeks if not months to fix it here, if ever. (Double shield exploit +1 year anyone?)
