I've said this ingame many times and I will reiterate it here, just for the benefit of players who are not familiar with the history of the event:

There was a sci-fi mmo I used to play that was sabotaged for no other reason then the company who owned it wanted it to die.

Shortly before it ended, they did a promotion similar to this one Cryptic is now offering.
It went something like this:

Your sci-fi MMO is closing down, but as compensation, we're offering you free access to our new fantasy mmo which is coming soon.

This was a blatant stunt to get as many players into the game at launch, to make it appear popular.

It backfired spectularly!
The majority of the playerbase who were given the offer simply declined it.


And that's the impression I'm getting here.
It's inappropriate to pitch a fantasy game at sci-fi players.
They're completely different worlds/fanbases.

Cryptic should just give it up and stop linking STO to NWO.
