"You're a Fed not using phasers! Adhere to canon or DIE!"

"You are different than I am and do not play this game in a proper Star Trek fashion! Adhere to canon or DIE!"

We take canon seriously around here.

This topic brings a tear to my eye....in a good, manly sort of way.

It's part of Samus's suit, you can see this clearly with the x-ray visor showing her arm in Metroid Prime 3, and the cutscene at the start before she suits up.

On topic, I owe the OP a drink for posting this thread and telling everyone why people like him/her and myself play this game.

After all, Kirk is a tactical genius, Picard did some pretty nifty stuff too, and the mainstay flagship in every tv series and movie is what? A CRUISER.

I play a tactical captain in a cruiser...and I will until the game shuts down.

Cruisers are fun. I love my escorts(loved the defiant on DS-9) but My main is a TAC, and I have used him in Cruisers as well, I have two sets of bridge officers to swap out on which ship I feel like using .

Their class/ship is underpowered compared to others. They go into STFs or even PVP and they do not have the tanking/healing/DPS abilties of X, Y, or even Z. They are grinding away to the slave of their fleet's Starbase and their Reputation system that demands their time on top of everything else. They might have a favorite ship whose layout does not measure up to the lofty standards of an elite STF crew. they maybe finicalically strapped in real life for time and money and cannot get around to grinding millions of dilithium or giving hundreds of dollars to the game in order to advance stuff.

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!

TL: DR
It's just a game. Have fun.

Full of Win!! =^.^=

Golf clap is a sarcastic clap where you aren't really clapping.

You know, I'd love to have fun with doff'ing but after LoR I crash in sector space so "just have fun" well the real world is a little more complex than that.

However you should take your own advice seeing as you have a problem with people not being satfisfied - stop reading the forums and just have fun

Whatever you decide just don't think people won't be complaining about bugs and features that aren't working.
