Which is why I view both Cryptic and STO through the eyes of a skeptical cynic. I've heard promises left and right these past years. I've had my hopes trashed repeatedly, i've been disappointed more often than I can count. So rather than seeing the game through rose-tinted glasses, I see it as always being the potential to "crash and burn". That way, I can be happily surprised when/if Cryptic finally comes through for all of us.

Some people may say, "Well if you don't like it, quit." And yes, it would be a simple matter to walk away, since I no longer spend any of my hard-earned cash on this game. As a Star Trek fan, I WANT it to succeed, and be a pleasant gaming experience for ALL involved.

I am both skeptical about the May update, and hopeful about it. But I try my hardest not to get my hopes up too high, since I have this nagging feeling, i'll just end up disappointed yet again.

All these hints from Mr Stahl on things coming in May, and as always he's "not at liberty to say". Those are more like the words from a small child simply saying;

"Nah-nah... I know something you don't, and i'm not gonna tell you. Haha!!"

I understand you can't reveal -everything-, but using the same statements repeatedly, makes it look worse. One wonders, what are you hiding from us? If it's something we should be happy about, one would think you could be anxious to reveal atleast -some- of the information, as it becomes "set in stone".

I think everyone should check their email. I just got a survey from PWE and so did my fleetmates... I think it's time we let them know how we feel since they're asking.

It's attitudes like this that lead to games going down the drain; people too willing to pay for and accept mediocrity and poor decisions, while failing to hold the devs accountable.
Most JJ Trek hate = IDIC fail.

The subtlety is appreciated.
He confirmed no such thing. The role of that small coterie of foundry members who lobbied for these changes has not been confirmed or denied.

All we know is that you asked for such changes, got them and then tried to pretend on another thread that you hadn't asked for them in the first place.

Whether cryptic changed these things on your say so or not is not the issue.

I do know, however, that any foundry missions authored by someone who lobbied for these changes will not be getting the attention they feel they have a right to......

Yup, just sent mine back.

The timing is interesting, don't you think?

If any KDF fleet needs marks I have about 16,000 that I am selling - of course the price just went up from last week when I posted about it and got laughed at from most of the other KDF players out there - you know who you are!!

Because they don't want facebook awash with the player bases response to this ill considered change.

A lot of people read facebook, I wouldn't be at all surprised if feedback on the facebook page is monitored by D'Stahls bosses.

Guess he does know his Sun Tzu; "If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected."

Thank you for pointing this out.

Feedback? Why yes, I do have some. Imagine that.
