Star Trek Online has won the "Best Free MMORPG 2012" award from MMORPG Center! Thank you to everyone who voted and for your continued support of STO. We can't wait for you to see what we have planned for 2013!
Despite my constant complaining and whinging about it, this game is actually pretty damn good.
I've played TSW, ToR, WoW and a couple others, yet I keep logging in here. I'll start a new MMORPG and find that it lacks a key feature that STO has, or the controls can't be jiggered to use a gamepad or SOMETHING. And I end up coming back here.
My only wish: Less grinding, far far more action-storytelling. MORE MISSIONS.
Congrats to the entire Cryptic and PW team for winning this award. You did something right... though I will never EVER admit that I said this.
While I definitely enjoy this game, it should be noted that this isnt really an "award", it was just a voting contest. People could repeat vote every day, so it just turned out that STO had the most repeat voters out of all the other games in the running. MMORPG Center didnt actually pick STO to give this reward to.
