Oh, I tease the DEVs. I know what they do isn't easy and it takes some know-how. Being an editor, I know how tedious the work can get as it's similar to what I do at times. Yeah, I know I'm not coding, but like coding, I have to go through and make sure there are absolutely no mistakes or things go bad.
My friend took a C++ class in college and he said it can be very tedious. One small typo and the program you are trying to build may not operate at all or as intended. And finding and correcting that one problem can take forever.
This is why I don't mind buying Zen every now and then. I do it with the hope that some of that money ends up in the pockets of the DEVs.
Clearly I caused that other game to fold. On my own. The declining playerbase and vanishing revenue had nothing to do with it.

There are No Longer any STO Veterans... We're Just Minions who have Played the Game for the last 5.0 years.
Yeah I've seen software devs in action, sitting behind a console copypasting code and fixing typos doesn't qualify as "hard work." Nor does slapping a half done texture on a poorly rendered model.
I am actually referring to another game I gave up on here, not STO. STO is slowly becoming "that other game" in terms of shear bug-creep and shortcutting. "Oh look another new weapon, same as the one from LAST season except it's PURPLE and shoots twice as fast!"
When a game gets to this point, I start reducing my play time. Eventually, I'll be done with it all together.
I left another game i had played for about 18 months and came here because the other game was one gianourmous bug if it wasnt broken those devs would "Fix" it and break it.
In the past 2 months on STO ive come to relise though not as buggy as my last game there are bugs that hurt gameplay but instead of fixing these issues we get lock boxes and new weapons like the ones you just stated.
Personally i had hoped that the klingon faction would add more to my STO experiance and enjoyment ..it did not it just added to my dissapointment.
I will continue to play STO but as time goes on my interest will decrease until i finally log off one last time and find something else.
