You kinda miss the point why everyone is upset. 1st is the deal was too good too soon. Second If they really wanted the game to be around they would fix most of the bugs. and come out with more content BEFORE they put it on special. Everyone agrees the game needs a lot of work. Whats the point of a great promotion just to have even more new players hating on the game. If they burn to many dridges before the game is worth playing it just spells certain doom for STO!!
I kinda get what your saying. Promote when the game is more solid. But for the most part it all boils down to money. Our money, Their Money. This game has a very small window to hit the success envelope. in 6 months it might be too late.
