In my opinion, STO does space combat better than any other MMO. There was a lot of time spent on space combat during early development of the game and I feel that the design team did an excellent job at capturing the nuances that make it fun and challenging. It really feels like the Star Trek shows to me. We consciously did not take the simulation approach that other games use, and I think we did it better.
maybe you should have worded it,
"In my opinion, STO does trek-like space combat better than any other MMO."
STO gives the heave-ho to the old blood and brings in fresh, new blood, better than any other MMO I've played. I'm excited by the appearence and apparent vigor of Dstahl. I am anxiously watching and already liking what I'm seeing.
YO Mr. STAHL IM REAL HAPPY FO YOU IMMA LET YOU FINISH THAT QUESTION, BUT SWG HAD THE BEST MMORPG SPACE COMBAT OF ALL TIME, OF ALL TIME.
Then you should be playing that.... Instead of trolling here.
Personally, I really enjoy the space battles in STO, more than the dinky little fighter sim provided by SWG.
What STO does better than any other MMO is listen and communicate.
I know several of you will disagree with that because they don't listen to crazy rants and reply to all the "do it now or I quit" threads, but they do listen to the people that discuss their criticism in a mature and concise manner and they communicate more than the devs from any other game I have played
