I don't know anyone who played a game or didn't based soly on anything gaming websites or magazines had to say about it, but the PR is good, and the impression is what people can pick up on.
The PR they get shouldn't be good, it should honestly reflect the true nature of the game. A very long time without new content. Features that routinely are taken down because they are "broken" Bugs that have been in since launch as admitted by the EP. Serious issues with trust and the Dev team. and an outlook by some that the game is not getting better with the conversion but in truth is getting worse.
trying to vote up the game to get it "good PR" or whatever you wish is basically in my opinion, asking me to commit fraud. Something I am not willing to do based on what I've seen and experienced with the game up to this date.
The Impression I get from STO right now, is it has major problems and needs a lot of help. Yours may differ, however based on this. I wouldn't and couldn't fathom voting for them in any "best of" poll at this time.
Haha this is hilarious, OP you acknowledged that STO does not deserve the award but we should vote for it to boost its health in the future. And we're to blame if we don't galvanize ourselves to help save STO?
What is this, high school politics? If STO tanks, it's the fault of cryptic and cryptic alone. We're the friggin customers, we're not supposed to steep down to dishonesty just to give them a helping hand. They have a PR and marketing dept for that.
I understand that we love Trek, but if STO dies perhaps another attempt could be made in the future by perhaps a more deserving studio.
