The PvP vs PvE argument.

It's not just one side or the other...It's both...Some of the arguments (I see the same ones in many games) are just childish.

Not everyone likes PvP and not everyone likes PvE...But in every game I've ever played...One side always tries to bash the other...and it's probably the one thing that annoys me to no end.

I agree with all the gripes on this thread thus far.

What really annoys me is that it seems that many have forgotten that this is a Star Trek game and a pretty well crafted one at that, going out of your way to make a goofy toon with the same old tired "liberated borg who was rescued and became a captain because they are awesome at everything always" stuff just gets tiring and breaks immersion.

I hate the item system because it takes away from having a good ship with a good crew, I like having purple level stuff but I don't want a set of items that makes my ship look like a disco floor.

Borg, we have had enough of the borg and it needs to stop.

MMO players that just play the game because it is another MMO and don't respect that it is Star Trek and they should act at least a little bit like they understand the world.

Spam in the chat channels drives me up the wall but kids who post suicide threats are just not what I want to deal with when I am trying to have fun. I have bipolar disorder and it means that I tend to take these threats very seriously.

I can't say it enough "USS DAWNHAMMERNIGHTSHADE420" is not a ship name, it is a atrocity and that trend needs to stop right now.

Higher level players coming in to a battle and wiping out everything before lower ranking players get even two shots off, I see it all the time and it is very rude.

I understand that some players are into fantasy stuff and dragons and things, I get that maybe you have a really interesting backstory but I always try to make sure it makes sense in the Star Trek universe and I go out of my way to make sure I behave accordingly.

This last one is a personal opinion and if you have a good reason for it then I applaud you but I cannot stand seeing toons that are less than four feet tall, running around with a half pint toon makes you look silly and makes the time I spend in ESD very annoying.

This is Star Trek, Starfleet and KDF are military organizations and everyone should understand that.

Exactly. Starfleet was the Federation's military arm. You want Diplomacy? That's the Federation. You want action? That's Starfleet.

Players that quit playing a game, but continue to post in that game's forums complaining about the game....or simply continue to post in that game's forums, period.


Players that whine and complain about unbalancing C-store ships are, while buying every single one as soon as it comes out...


Just a little venting...

not just military.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starfleet

it covered all aspects. exploration, diplomacy, research. it was a multifunctional organisation that worked for the federation, but it was not restricted to just military roles.

there were specialists within the federation that did not necessarily work for starfleet that could be called upon for those extra tricky assignments or situations, but starfleet would conduct diplomacy too. picard was always doing it.

1. most of the active population is in the US and i'm not

2. the ammount of people who roll need on anything at all

3. gold sellers (though sto has managed to keep this very low, but i see that changing if dilithium is trade/ post able)

4. lack of diversity between charicters (not looks but abilitys)

5. content is always quicker to play than make, so if you've been around since the start theres very little new to see

1.Lack of recognition for Crafters among fleets and PVP'ers running the place

2. Lack of Staying Power when running a STF (people bailing out in the middle of a op)

3. 1337 speak people in channels

4. Rude People in Channels

5. Fleet Spamvertizements

Pay to win. That not only annoys me, but it angers me.

Also, in this MMO, i dislike people using ship visuals (Fed) the other customizations dont bug me

The US military works toward exploration, diplomacy and research too--but that doesn't mean they're less military-oriented.

which only proves my point. i never said that starfleet did not act as a military. i said they do other things as well besides being a military.
