And what about those of us who have been playing STO for a while and decided to go silver because there's not enough perks to stay as a subscriber? I've done hundreds of STFs across all 5 of my VA/LG toons, and just because I'm a silver player, does it mean that I'm not as good as you, Mr. Subscriber? If you want it so that you don't have to play with us free-to-play players, then we silvers want an option to not play with someone as inconsiderate and "hateful" as you.
There are a lot of great folks out there that are silver players for one valid reason or another.
This isn't EQ2- where being a silver player means you are gimped gearwise- STO silver players have equal access to gear and content as we do. So, we really should welcome them as equals.
These folks are who's gonna be greasing this game's wheels from here on.
Okay but what if they got crafty and rubbed off the color coating? Could it rub off? Does it rain in space? "Let That be Your Last Battlefield" was a super episode. I think there was some sort of color coating going on in there. I'm just not sure what you are getting at here but if I was a betting man I would wager latinum that to an outside observer your life is flagged with "I'm special" banners.
Suppose each gold member received a copy of "My Very First Composition Book"? Or perhaps "The Reader's Digest Alphabet" none of those pesky vowels. Would that help?
Here is my best suggestion for you. Talk to people inside the game. That should limit your potential pool of people to group with.
I think Cryptic needs to seriously consider how difficulty in the game is approached...and this in turn would influence how people end up playing to en extent. For example...higher difficulty should mean more effective use of powers by the NPC enemies...not zerg numbers and over inflated shield/hull HP and weapon damage. The way the game is now during the lion's share of PVE missions...they are faceroll/spacebar breaking missions.
The things that i would like to see in game which might sound hateful towardsFree-to-Play players, but too bad, i pay lol
Color coding names or something that can be indicitiveof his, or her, member status. STF settings that allows exclusion of random Free-to_Play player.
Something that can make us gold or lifetime players feel special in a sense besides the captains' table.
I tried cleaning it up for you but this is the best I could do.
The ability or willingness of a person to pay for the game in any form does not reflect that persons ability to play the game.
I would rather play with someone that's new, ready to learn, and is having fun then to play with someone who discriminates against and brands others for their valid choice to pay or not.
At best your request is hateful, but is more likely to be seen as discriminatory and possibly racist.
If you would like to avoid playing with F2P players might I suggest creating a fleet and allowing only like-minded members access.
I have a few names I can suggest if you would like.
