I want to know why I can't heal others with my regenerators anymore? I see a lot of people looking for the medical officer to get healed up and have spare consumables to get them fixed up after I tell them where to go, but can't do anything about helping them out right then and there.
The logic of the decision to make the injury system made sense to me at first : You want more realistic battles with injury penalties on performance of the ship and ground personnel , I get it.
But here is the bit that has me shaking my head , and agreeing with my favorite blogger in her post It seems that the loud and whiny contingent of the gaming community here at STO seem to have mixed up Star trek with EVE and Star Wars. Which was all about conflict and combat and levels of "Douchery" the average twitch gaming , pvp junkie seems to thrive on. STO is supposed to be about exploration with a "side order" of combat.
But I digress , back to my rant....
So these Whiners complained about no real penalty for death in the game then lobby like Washington insiders for Cryptic to make a system where there would be penalties for people who die or took injuries in battle making their ships and avatars slower until they are healed. Supposedly to make them easier targets for the PVP ghouls looking to get their rocks ff from an easy kill (in a video game)
Well they get it (sort of) people can select difficulty in missions now .... (To be honest YAY I like Advanced or Elite from time to time)
and when I get hurt I have to Pay.....NO Wait... I Don't have to pay , Sure I can go get some components and Medical thingies to heal up in battle , but Those same people who complained about lack of penalty , well some of them decided to complain abut having to PAY TO BE HEALED and wanted it for free..
Now I'm just and old Country Doctor ... but does that not sound EXACTLY like it was before , you got hurt and it effected you not? I mean really they got what they asked for , then like Oliver twist they went up to ***in and DEMANDED MORE! and unlike the literal namesake Cryptic kindly gave them more.
Sheesh. Look this is supposed to be a game... All the nerfing you people are asking for is STUPID.
In real life one side or another has some advantage over their peers and enemies. It's not supposed to be fair it's supposed to be overcome and adapted to. If you ask for a cup of coffee don't sue because you burned your mouth on it , FFS it's supposed to be hot....
The developers have given us a really good gaming experience and Many of us have fun , I only wish I had not rushed through all the content so fast and savored it more, but that is on ME not cryptic. I mean for a new MMO this one is actually pretty damn good. Well now I need to get back and seduce n00b player into giving my sexy Female Captain free stuff!
