bought a subscription shortly after this went f2p...now i'm wondering why. devs don't listen, this is is becoming obvious...or at lest one person doesn't...he/she has a 'plan' knows what's good and proper for the player base no matter how much they object. no matter what alternatives they give.
yep, shield consoles...personally, didn't care much, out of 4 lvl 50 characters only one has 1 console slotted. but what is indicative is the how the thread was completely ignored, and the patch is going ahead anyway. whomever thought this was a good idea...do they even play? or play test? all classes/ships on both sides? no? didn't think so.
i've played hundreds of mmo's, the ones that do the worst in relation to player base and rapid turnovers in population are the ones where they don't freaking listen. if there's a significant number of players saying 'this is a bad idea' or 'how about do it this way' you should listen. instead what? all players are idiots? not worth the time to take seriously? making it a unique console...problem solved...but no, 'we at cryptic know what's best..' yeah...if that was truly the case....you never would have had to go f2p.
a mmo company that ignores it's players, thinks they're not worth listening to for other than game breaking bugs...treats them like idiots...that just breeds oodles of loyal players doesn't it?
Q is just the distraction for the nerfing of the Field Generator consoles. They'll will now stack but you they're basically useless in their incoming form. Nothing like a kick in the groin for Bortas Captain's mostly but this will impact everyone. I really wish Cryptic would stop messing with things that aren't broken!
That's a real kick especially considering how much people paid for the Bug, even more than the combo pack in some cases.
Why buy ships when they're going to be nerfed after purchase? What is the next nerf to come?
Tribble is not for feedback. It's to find out if their patch breaks the game. If the game doesn't break, all the feedback in the world will not change a design decision. I'm not happy with cryptic today.
