Fans are safe in their bubble.
We do come to the boards it's just you have to wade through a mountain of **** to find a gold nugget. So aside from random trollery for trolleries sake (Because I'm an ***hole - NSFW), I tend to ignore the vast majority of threads here. And hey if you guys don't like it don't play it... oh wait you're not, so in fact errrm, carry on! Just stay off the cruiser forums or I'll gut ye!

I enjoy the game because i can play it with my friends, not cause of the content, i dont give a flying frak about repeating missions, we're all having fun doing it so get over yourselves. If you really want to whinge over it, go get a livejournal and do it there, people will still ignore you and at least you wont spam us with your trolling.

So yes, i agree with the OP.

Company Rating F
Our opinion of what this rating means:
We strongly question the company’s reliability for reasons such as that they have failed to respond to complaints, their advertising is grossly misleading, they are not in compliance with the law’s licensing or registration requirements, their complaints contain especially serious allegations, or the company’s industry is known for its fraudulent business practices.
This again? As the page itself points out, the reason they got an F is because Cryptic responded to only 1 of 35 complaints forwarded to the BBB. If you don't respond to the BBB's questionaire, you flunk. As I recall, they also point out that those reasons are the GENERAL reasons for a company to get an F, not necesarily the reason why it did. There are many reasons for a company to NOT answer the questionaire. Could be they're guilty. Could be they don't want to waste their time, or provide information to an outside company regarding their internal policies.

To the OP, laudable attempt. But as DieScreams has pointed out, there will always be people who are so embittered for whatever reason that they can't just let people enjoy themselves in a game. They have to try as hard as they can to convince as many people as possible to leave. Whether it is because they think they are Crusaders of Justice trying to help the much MUCH dumber people save their money (because NO ONE who could possibly like something they don't has any brains whatsoever), or because they're like the creepy high school stalker kid who keeps badmouthing the prom queen all the way into his 40's because she laughed at him when he asked her out, they become obsessed with destroying the very object of their affections. The funny thing is, THEY'RE the ones who accuse others of being 'fanbois' when the reality is, THEY are the 'fanbois'. THEY are the ones who elevated a simple, stupid game, to nigh diety level. Who worshipped it's 'potential', who had such high expectations. And when those expectations weren't met? THEY'RE the ones who were so emotionally entwined with the game that they've gone on the warpath. "How...how DARE they betray MY trust!!! I gave them my hopes! My dreams! I DEPENDED on them to make this game GREAT! And they...they...SPURNED ME! HOW DAAAREEEE THEYYYYYYY!!! They can NOT do this to ME!!! I'll...I'll show them! They can't mess with my heart! I'll get them for this! Just you see! I"LL GET THEM!!!!!" followed by post after post about how the game sucks, the game company sucks, the fans suck, etc etc.

If only those people would understand that:
1) It's just a game
2) Not every game will be liked by every person
3) If you don't like a game, go find one you do like
4) Other people liking a game you dislike isn't an attack upon you, and vice versa
5) Companies make the games THEY think will succeed; if it's not to your liking it isn't because the company hates you and intentionally set out to 'ruin' your life
6) It's just a game
7) It's just a game

Oh. Did I mention that it's...JUST A GAME? To many people take it WAY to seriously. Relax. It's JUST A GAME.

Not really because anyone who knows MMOs knows that professional trolls infest every game forum just like at protests. The ones that cause the most damage have nothing to do with the protest. They are there just to destroy.

Why? Because these people are staying in order to help the game's progression and evolution. In all honesty, we all bought this game believing it to be potentially great. Or at least to have great potential. Some people still believe it can be the game it set out to be. Maybe they're right. With their support, constructive criticism, and sub money, this game may actually develop into what we all believed it could be.

Some of us are impatient, and tired of waiting already. I know because I'm one of them. But let's not discourage the people who will give this game the potential it needs to not only survive, but thrive and develop. Each time we post a negative thread we're taking energy away from these guys who will be part of this game's future construction. And by golly, that just ain't right. We don't have to like the way the game is now, but we can't deny that it could become something much better than it is. And negativity sure isn't going to help anything.

To all of you staying behind - I salute you. When and if this game reaches its potential it will be because of your efforts and your faith in the devs.

Best of luck. Godspeed. And free dorritos.... from the devs. I'm not buyin' you nothin'.
*salutes*
Fair solar winds and following seas of star systems...

Good post, sir.

Really? You're going to wheel this sad old site out again? LOL!

Surely you can do better than the BBB. A company that fabricated an arbitrary business rating service? A company that disguises itself as an impartial "consumer interest" site but which is actually a for-profit private company that is paid for, subsidised and subscribed to by the businesses its rates? Seriously, the BBBs underlying business model is more bias and corrupt than any MMO company has ever been.

There are many things I would like to see improved about Crytpic. Its BBB rating isn't one of them.

Your desperation is as just as laughable as you seem to think the fanbois are. I'm embarrassed for you

Not sure he's the one crying, Petal.

You seem to zero in on these threads (you know, the ones with even the smallest hint of positivity) with alarming speed and accuracy.

Its almost as if it literally upsets you when people post to say they enjoy the game, causing you to swoop in dramatically... only to whip out the tired, wheezing old BBB thing.

I think is funny that the one in the group who is actually crying would accuse someone else of it. You know, funny in a "sad" way
