A very logical summation.

The game didn't ship with 150 hours content, the devs have said themselves in interviews that the game has 80 hours of content and that's a directly quoted figure. Granted, you should only be finished by now if you play 8+ hours a day like the OP, but he's actually been much slower than the devs expected.

You'd expect the game to last more than half the first free month even for people who play 8 hours per day.

I'll be nowhere near finished any time soon myself, but that's because I don't even feel like playing lately.

I have job, and a wife.

Heh. Of course, I had both of those things "back then" when I played MMOs more heavily - but she played alongside me then.

So my current played time is

6 days 40 mins

144 hours? That's about how long it took me to do all the non-Raid content in Wrath of the Lich King when it came out in WoW.

144 hours / $60 = good deal, IMHO.

Especially as it's a fact more and more content will always come.

The bluntest truth. Scaling a MMO content for casual play is like hiding sexual content on a mainstream game that can be enabled by a mod called Hot Coffee. You simply don't, it's a bad decision.

Calling the average MMO player "casual", especially for a IP like Star Trek is.... is..... God, i don't even have a word for it..

Now you know how the missions play out etc. I bet you could speedrun the game pretty well.

Personally I don't know why even casual players would want to finish an MMO in 80 hours. lol.
