I say that as a lifelong Trek nerd. But Jesus, this place. This godforsaken place.

The more I come here the more I realize how lucky I am that I landed in a really good fleet, full of sane, normal human beings, who actually make playing the game more fun.
Pointless trash talking, if it wasn't for the serious concerns and criticisms as well as popular backlash on this forum Season 7 as it original was delivered by the hapless developers would've been an unmitigated disaster for this game.

You should count yourself grateful.

(Oh and I wouldn't believe anything a developer says about player numbers without publication of the source material that reflects that number... believe me it's a standard technique in the software industry to flat out lie about the volume of the user base.)

Indeed you are.

Calling developers hapless liars is a wonderful way of motivating them to do more.

There are ways to voice concerns without being personal and insulting people, as you grow up you will learn this valuable life lesson.

No but I'm not surprised you cannot see the difference.

No you see insults are usually baseless, hapless and lying are descriptors in this case.

They were hapless with Season 7, they willfully pushed a half finished update onto Holodeck even after thread after thread from Tribble testers (who are unpaid may I add) who warned them about serious bugs and issues as well as ridiculous and outlandish price structures for Reputation items.

They ignore them all and pressed ahead, the result a botched update that the community revolted against, thus forcing them to make changes.

They did lie or at least deceive or misinform... we were told that the lack of Dilithium as end reward for STF's was an oversight and that on Holodeck STF's would have Dilithium as an end of mission reward. When Season 7 hit Holodeck there was none, and we were informed by the team they there would be none. Once again only because of players complaining that they were eventually kept their word.

I'm sorry but you shouldn't run a business let alone and update deployment like that. Or at least if you do don't let you customers know how unprofessional you are.

And finally I sink vast sums of money into this game and honestly I complain to protect the game and push for it to reach the potential it has.

Ultimately, the game is a vehicle for Cryptic and PWE to make money and the bottom line is profit, if they could make vast sums of money by introducing gambling items like lockboxes they will. The players on the other hand are stakeholders and they want to protect the enjoyment of the game it's that simple (whilst devs may have good intentions and aspirations the bottom line is the key factor)

It would be nice if he ever realized that there are diehard KDF players and do something for them instead of trying to force everyone to play the fed side. I've read the 'shameful history' thread and tho disheartening for this KDF'er I'll give him a chance because I've played less than a year and haven't experienced most of the ******* outlined in the 'history' thread.

Should S8 come without the promised content I'm sure I wont be missed, and the Feddies can assume my small contrabution to the devs paychecks.

Think it's about time some people took a step back and had a think about what they're posting, even with my pretty virulent views.

To be honest one of the things they have done really well is allow us the freedom to criticize and debate honestly on these boards.

ok, putting PR to the side the game is good in my humble opinion, but could be much better.

I hope is not more grinding and similar repetitive missions, New Romulus was good just to many simple mini games. The simple scan and pick up or shoot to kill is ok as long as there is variety.

At the moment it is set in the Star Trek universe but has not got Star Trek spirit but getting there slowly.
