However, I looked through all of these issues in the game, all these shortcomings, all these twist and turns. I looked and I found a way out. There is a way to win this game. After that, all the DPS and the power grinding and all the time-gated stuff doesn't matter anymore.

Here it is... Brace yourselves...

JUST HAVE FUN!

YUP! That is how you win STO. You win the game when you are having fun. The specifics of it will vary from person to person, but the endgame for everyone is having fun.

You like science vessels? HAVE AT IT!
You want to be DPSy? GO FOR IT!
You want to Roleplay and ignore the war? AWESOME!
You want to be the best PVPer you can? YOU CAN DO IT!
You want to fly your favorite ship no matter what? PICK ONE AND GO!
You like to sit in ESD and tell gorn jokes? GORN AHEAD! YOU WON'T GET IN TRIBBLE!


That is it. When you keep this in mind, other people's decisions about their builds, their ships, or their classes, you begin to realize that the nerfs and bug squashing isn't to punish us or a specific subclass of the population. The Devs nerf and tweak stuff to preserve the endgame ("having fun")... FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED! The ships act differently to give variety to the game, SO THAT MORE THAN ONE TYPE OF PERSON CAN GET TO THE ENDGAME! Whether or not you win or lose a specific STF, event, or a PVP match doesn't matter, as long as you and other involved are having fun, you are all winning!

So, Shut up! Stop trolling people for their choice in class or ship. Stop flaming the devs for changing something that needed to be changed. Sit down, shut up, and get back to that endgame grind.. Having fun!

It's just a game. Have fun.
What if them having fun involved said person doing the EXACT thing you say not to do? Not everyone has fun by not trying to be the best you know. Some have fun by actually trying to get the best stuff, or at least having something that can last against Tholians(i hate Tholians....)

This isn't a game! It's STAR TREK. Next you'll be asking me to talk to mundanes in English instead of Klingon.

The voice of reason has spoken, I will never understand why people take a game so seriously. It is one of the issues I had in Eve Online, too many players want you to play the game their way and treat everything like a full time job. If you want me to play the game your way, that is fine, you pay my subscription.

With the new tribble tactical space traits, Being a tactical in a cruiser is becoming even more valid an option. Now if only cruisers and carriers did not turn like a brick...
Let us wear Swimsuits on Foundry maps or bridges please! I would pay zen for that.
