If no one wants to play the game because its crap and on its last legs you cant really blame the players.
I am afraid there are so many that agree with this assessment at this point as to promote a Hellgate:London or Tabula Rasa gut feeling. Out of nearly a dozen very Star Trek and MMO gung-ho group of friends who waited frothing at the bit for this game to come out, we are down to three, one of whom plays rarely and begrudgingly (my wife), another of whom is on his last legs, and myself who sees little point with the micro amount of pvp available.
Essentially, what we are down to is roughly 25% of the original group, all three of whom are fading quickly, and I have to believe that our group represents a wide variety of the player base with Military, Medical, Blue Collar, Legal, and Techie careers and a common interest in Star Trek and MMO's in general.
This isn't an I quit post, this isn't a flame of anyone or any game, rather a factual representation of the reality of the game I am currently still playing and the friends I miss.
