# 1 Are we overreacting much?
07-17-2014, 07:17 PM
Honestly, this is the biggest question I have to ask: are we actually sitting here, throwing fits and declaring PWE and Cryptic are greedy [REDACTED]s because of a DOFF system? Because of the removal of the Star Clusters? Because they're a game company and they need money to keep going?

Seriously, I've been looking at posts for the past few hours and I'm sitting here seeing people saying that they were going to quit because of the DOFF UI. The DOFF UI, people. It's a little unwieldy, yes, but the way you guys are acting, it's if opening it up causes you guys physical harm.

Have we, as a community, fallen so hard that we have to pitch fits over the smallest things like every other game out there? I came here August 2013, just after the last Risa event and it wasn't this bad. A year later, it's like... I dunno how to describe it, but it's bad and it's embarrassing.

I used to like coming to the forums from time to time. Not anymore. Sure, go ahead, call me out on my own ironic complaining, but at least I'm not rage quitting over a piece of code. If you guys want to quit over it, fine. Go ahead. No one's stopping you. But don't quit over something petty.

To answer the question: Yes. Everyone overreacts. I've seen it on so many MMORPG Games. And I don't care if I get burned, I rather like the updates they're doing. Except the oddball uniform colors but that's easily fixed by myself in the tailor.

If they wanted to make money, they could eliminate the Dil-Zen conversion...or make it Zen to Dil only.

I believe there were plenty of player ideas...mine was a Ferengi Casino.

What may be petty to one may not be petty to another. We do not get to decide what is petty for others or not. Sure, I might /facepalm some of the complaints - but it is not my place to call them petty or tell them they do not have the right to complain. I am sure folks have broken out their fair share of /facepalms over things that I have complained about as well.

There is a bit of sample bias here. The people who are enjoying the update are spending all their time enjoying it. With few exceptions, only the people who have very negative reactions will take the time to come and voice them.

I think some posters get so caught up in rage sometimes and then they just start hatin' anything new in STO like Edgecrysger... I don't agree with everything Cryptic does but Jesus.

It's not just a little unwieldy, it's extremely difficult to use if you have any desire to choose your own DOFF for any reason. The old system was vastly superior in every way.

Welcome to the forums. Leave your sanity at the door.

I do agree that selecting your own DOff is clunky as hell though.
