Many people came to this game as there was nothing out there new enough to try. STO looked like a new game that I could enjoy similar to POTBS, or COH. Now I wish I never tried it, you ask why? My friends talked me into it sure, but I still have fun playing it. Why am I quiting then?

I refuse to be part of the Drama;

1. First day of head start, STO burned out my perfectly fine 8800GTS video card 3 hours into playing it.

2. The tech support ticket was never responded to, and the forums blamed my case or the fact that I didn't put an after market cooling system on my card.

3. There are patches every couple days and I have no Idea why, or what changes they make till i find more bugs in game, like my mini map breaking in ground pvp.

4. 90 days free being offered to new players spells death in any language for a brand new game 4 weeks after release no less!!!

5. Forums being censored. Seriously that is very bad news, Cryptic should have known that so many ****ed off trekkies and lifetime supscription holders have nothing else to do but rant publically. They are ****ed off! And should be, they yell and scream because they have no other recourse.

6. Liking a game is not enough to keep paying to play it. MMOs have a responsibility to keep its customers happier than any other due to the subscription they pay. If you sense a problem, or your friends start quitting, get out before you Throw too much money away. That hard earned cash should go to a company you can trust to create the longevity in game play you expect from mmos played in the past.

7. Ive played so many mmos at lauch i won't list them, but if you have too, you'll notice several things that are unforgiveable:

a. Big name games comming out to dissapointing content.
b. Lack of kept promises lead to even worse things down the road.
c. How are the forums managed, censored.

So trekkies, here is your equivallant to Star Wars Galaxies. Congrats, you have more in common with star wars fans than you thought. I have no vested interest in this games success or failure, but I am sure everyone will agree with me in one respect;

We demand better from MMOs at launch, this is not another testing phase. We as a whole, want to know what to expect before we buy a game and do not like aspects pulled out from under us at release.

8. Moderators are unwilling to sticky critically important threads in a timely manner.

Yeah, not going to happen. MMO's will become obsolete long before they fill everyones wants and needs.

For starters LOTS of people complain that the forums arent censored enough. Others that its too much. But every decent forum has moderation.

And liking a game is not enough to keep playing it??? Well, if thats not a factor then I dont know what is.

Of COURSE liking a game is enough to keep playing it. In fact.....its the ONLY thing that really matters. I dont care what my friends or anyone else does. I am not one of the sheeple.

The Atari sale thing is over. The game is running. Things are getting fixed and added.

Your post was decent, but I couldnt see a real reason for quitting there. Im sure you have your reasons though.

Valid enough reason, He isnt having enough fun to justify the drawbacks.

Best of luck and I hope you find a more enjoyable game.

If you refuse to be part of the drama, why add to it?

I completely agree with the OP , with this to add.

By the time the time we get any real contect for Klingons and end game it will be well into May I am sure and with its own share of bugs and issues. By the time its fixed it will be summer and the population is going to drop once again. By the time they come back the new WoW exp will further split a the population and then around the corner its Kotor.
