It's one of those things, where if you didn't play STO - it might be kind of funny, eh?
Players report issue with Item X.
Players argue amongst themselves for a bit on how to fix Item X.
A common element arises, no matter what else they might disagree on, they agree on that - call it Fix A.
Cryptic implements Fix B that breaks Item Y and Item Z.
Players go WTF?
Seriously, if we didn't play the game - it would be like watching a sitcom or something on Thursday night.
