After an amazing F2P launch, with no server issues at all from what I've seen, not even slow down in loading. It is time to Google +1 Cryptics website and STO site.
Come on folks, do it now.
Do you remember when they use to release a new episode, I think the Reman ones were pretty bad, the server struggled like crazy and we got booted from the game during the new episode we had waited long for. That was just a new mission to play! I cancelled my sub for a short time until the game was more stable. It appears to be more than just more stable.
I swear my loading screens are quicker now than what they used to be, Virgin have not even upgraded my broadband in the National free upgrade yet that happens in February.
We got a bunch of good freebies on the run up to F2P, purple doffs, C-Store ships both Fed and KDF sides. Yet very little thanks on the forums, just a lot of the usual complaining from players thinking about the game from their own point of view, guilty myself at times. Sometimes I want things now, like yesterday and I've not always been impressed with decisions but I also know it's impossible to make everyone happy.
Whatever the past, the last 2-3 months have been amazingly professional. Like a team of developers no longer pushed too hard or not being messed around so much. I don't know the reasons, I bet plenty people can speculate but probably no nothing. The situation now, is what we wished was here a long time ago but it is here now so lets enjoy it I say and support the game.
I think now is the time for STO fans to thank Cryptic.
