# 1 The games just not ready :(
02-11-2010, 09:46 PM
I wanted this game to be awesome.
I did not expect anything ground breaking.
I did expect it to be completed to a level of playability though.

Tried to get my friends to play.
Friend 1 logged in to a 700 person queue and after waiting 20 minutes called and said
"sorry man, I'm out, gonna go play Dragon Age, i just don't have time for this stuff."
I don't blame him.
It was 3 pm on a Thursday, hardly prime time.
Lesson 1 Cryptic- Have capacity ready for players, not on back-order.

Friend 2 logged in.
He gave it the honest college try, got to level 11.
Then called me to explain that he just does not have the patience required for inventory management.
He's right too, often you have to "click and hold" 3-4 times before you can "grab" an icon to move it.
Anytime the skill/status window is open the game lags badly, like playing through butter.
Lesson 2- clean up your code

My experience has been pretty rough.
Wheres the documentation?

Why do I have 40+ goldspammers in my mailbox?
Why does reporting them as spam NOT delete them? I have to do this? WHY?

Why did my collectors edition say it was in a "heavy duty box with a brushed aluminum finish" and then arrive in a CARDBOARD box with brushed aluminum PAINT?

Wheres my 40 page art book? I got a book but it was also the cd case AND the "manual" for the game.
(I'm going to really jab you here, I paid almost as much for my collectors edition WOW and got a REAL art book, not to mention a decent box)
I guess I'm lucky my federation pin was real metal.....

Why is acetone field 3 bugged still?
What do you plan to do about it?
You going to replace my buddies BORG that was bugged with it?
he's real ****ed

In short, I'll be using my 30 days, we'll see where we are then.
I'm not paying another dime until the game is in a playable state however.

That means no more rubber banding motion sickness.
No more showstopping bugs (like acetone field 3)
Your in game user interface won't lag.
Skills and ability's will function as intended.
PVP will be at least somewhat balanced

A couple suggestions-
Report mail also needs to delete it.
Better tool tips. (all around they suck, from the font to the way info is presented)
Transwarp to other stations- like ds9.
I'm a toon addict- get the buyable character slots in the store.
Admirals at sb24 is stupid. Scale it to level and lock it per tier.

Your personal opinion has been duly noted.

Whine Whine Whine

We have had enough of these on the forums. Why don't you go and contact Cryptic about your boo-hoo stories. All of us are having fun, and we aren't going to stop because ANOTHER person doesn't like it.

Who asked you to stop?
Even I said i was using my 30 days.
It IS fun, just not Complete.
Lets face it. It's laggy and some aspects are flat out broken.

Currently I feel like I bought a three legged donkey.

I think its the rubberbanding and ui lag that bugs me the most.
Blasting things with dual heavy polaron cannons is fun.
Dragging them from my inventory to my bank ten times because i cant seem to grab them is just maddening.

That's not the game chief. It's your computer/connection. I've been enjoying silky smooth gameplay for days.

Don't worry, the vast majority of these people who say we're whining even though the game is unfinished are the lifetime membership purchasers. They're not yet willing to admit they overpaid for a subpar product.

Step one: Denial.

Umm... in the world I live in "finish" means paint. Like a car having a high gloss finish, means is has a shiny paint job.

I don't have a lifetime sub and I think most of the complaints are insane. It's a fun game. Try enjoying it.

I think maybe you love the game and are in denial about it, that would explain hanging out on the forums.

1) I'm not a lifetime subscriber

2) I agree with them completely. It is an enjoyable game.
