Yeah ... There are things you need to work on but that's true of most things ... is it not?

I love playing the game and it says something that I enjoy doing that on a daily basis.

Thank you!

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

I get angry about this game a lot, but that's because I like it a lot. If I didn't enjoy it, didn't feel a strong attachment to it, I wouldn't care enough to get angry at it.

So yes, thank you for making a game I deeply care about. In the world of MMOs (especially F2P MMOs), that's rare.

I totally agree with "Thank you for making a game that I deeply care about."

But otherwise, I would say that I get frustrated, not angry. Which is why I'm glad that I can click on "skip" on certain episodes. Especially those that turn out to be really really hard for someone as near-sighted as I am and with depth-perception problems like I have (shuttle-sized ships that are really hard to see where they are in relation to the inside of the Vault or dipping in and around DS9's exterior). I wish there were optional (not easier) missions/episodes for folks like me. And I wish that some Foundry missions hadn't been "improved" to make them more difficult. Not all of us are elite-level players. I'm a normal-level player myself and that's hard enough for me. Maybe someday I'll see what elite-level is like, but not yet. I want to enjoy the game, not be overwhelmed by it to the point I permanently give up on it.

I'm also glad the website and related websites like STO Wiki and STO Academy are up and running during the times when I can't log on to the game itself (like yesterday and today, for instance). Learning alot of things about STO that I haven't known since starting as an STO user last September (I've been a Star Trek fan since I was a kid in the 1970s, but never an MMORPG user before last year). In the meantime, I have to remind myself to be patient: I will be back in the game once the technical issues have been taken care of and I will be just as addicted to the game as ever. I also keep wishing the "galaxy" in the game were twice as large or ten times as large. More patience. The "galaxy" will keep growing. Just not as fast as I wish it could.

Sorry for all the babbling. It's what happens when I think aloud.

I'll shamelessly thank them myself once they get their QA department under control...

Agreed, cryptic does a good job.

Thanks for tolerating all the random bad behavior and hate. :/ I'm embarassed by some of the aweful things ppl say on the forums...

I've not see an mmo game developer that was SO responsive to its community.

Thanks for making our star trek world possible!

Cryptic does a great job. I'm continually amazed at the fact that a smaller company like them can pull off an MMO with 2 million players. General consensus among the game Dev community (at least the ones I lurk on) is that you need to be a huge company to make any kind of mmo, and cryptic has proven otherwise.

And also, I think one of the reasons people get mad about bugs etc. Is the fact that they care about the game. If they hated the game they wouldn't play it. The fact that they're still here, even if they're complaining very vocally, shows that they want to see the game become the best that it can be. There's been patches and bugs that have gotten me frustrated, but I still come back to the fact that I love this game, even if invisible Borg torpedoes kill me instantly without warning
