"Burnt out" means that you've been doing something so much and for so long that you can't do it anymore. Simple solution: stop playing for awhile. There's nothing wrong with taking a break-- people do it all the time. In fact, it's good that you're getting "burnt out" because that's your mind's way of telling you that you've been playing the game too much (to the point of addiction, maybe) and that you should change things up a little.
A way I take a break sometimes is to watch funny gameplay commentary videos by people like BlueXephos, pcgamer999, TobyGames, etc... Not only do I get a laugh, but introduced to other games I never really played or knew about.
I feel a bit tired going home later to doff up my toons, farm dil, troll on the new TenForwardForum chat channel.
I find it noisy sitting at Quark's No. 1 instance trying to socialize, and the peeeeee peeeee sound of phasers are irritating to my ears. I could fall asleep easily listening to the thrum of the warp drive (even on maxx bass), which used to be exciting.
Can you suggest some in-game therapy that would calm my nerves? Something with a drop of honey in it ? :3
Be a Cardassian and spend more time looking at plots and setting up diversions which lead to other plots filled with diversions which lead to other plots, etc.
You don't have to be in the game for that and I'm sure listening to heavy metal music or something can pop up some very devious plots and twists.
I just bought Skyrim... arrived yesterday, so glad to hear that some of you are already enjoying it. I like the sound of the random exploration (something I wished STO had).
The weather has just got better too, so the outdoor activities can begin again.
I've also just rediscovered my Warhammer 40k wargames minatures, and a load of unbuilt and unpainted models at the back of a cupboard... Woohoo!
Free passtimes are the best!
Skyrim is awesome. I declared war on the Thalmore (can't officially do that), but I have the "Call Dragon" shout and if I can't get into the walls, I just have the Dragon "get over" the walls...wipes them out. If you wear the amulet of Talos, those pointy eared meddlers go nuts...so if you want to fight...find an amulet.
Already killed their embassy and a strong hold. Now cleaning up with every town that has more than two in it.
of course, I'm wanted..but what Cardassian isn't??
That's what i do from time to time.... Just dream about the possibilities of a real open ended Star Trek simulation ... and then i go play STO...

Play STO not to achieve anything but for the sake of enjoying Star Trek universe. Play whatever episode or foundry mission you fancy to try and replay.
If you're really burnt out then I suggest playing another game.
I assume you're a female but nonetheless I'd recommend Skyrim if u hadn't tried that already. It's a very good adventure game but mind you single player only so not one to socialize.
Or try playing other f2p MMO: DC Universe Online, Champions Online or World of Tanks to name a few.
Or find another game which theme and setting you prefer. For me it's Crusader Kings 2 and soon Shogun 2 Fall of the Samurai. I'll be picking the last later on tonight in fact.
Or try [premium/hobby] boardgaming for a social gaming. Check out boardgamegeek through google.
Or find another hobby besides gaming like gymn or dancing class, Yoga or martial arts, acting, language class, music, choir, sculpting, painting, etc
Or find a GOOD BOOK or a few books. Hunting for books is always exciting for me.
To play is to have fun when there's little fun or a lot of upsetting there's little reason to play or continue to play. Everytime I fired STO Kirk, Spock and Dr Mc Coy as well the whole TNG crews and all the ships came into my mind. That is what exciting to me. In other words I fantasize while playing too, if not the game would feel a bit too mechanical and losing the fun calming Star Trek feeling to it since u blast through everything in game which is not very Star Trek . You could try playing with REAL friend or family members. Use mic and Teamspeak 3 voice chat to coordinate. It's MUCH more fun that way.
Man you just saved my day!!!
I just wanted to write about how annoying STO can get and how much i agree to the OT, but man i got some really good ideas because of you!
I'm not allowed to play Minecraft. I already hit most everything I come across in reality, (really I do, I knockout the light posts on campus and it's not even a real punch... more of a hammer strike). All that smash and grab in Minecraft only makes it worse. I go from, "I wonder how hard that is?" to "PI SMASH!!!"
Skyrim is a better temporary gaming distraction for me. Create a total badass then go pick flowers and catch butterflies with said total badass character. Then I only have to be worried about getting chased out of my neighbor's victory garden after a alchemical reactant binge.
Would like to thank all of you for helping though some emotional tumult that for the love of god I could not figure out how to handle myself.
I'm perfectly content IRL but somehow online matters do have a place in my heart possibly due to the high level of intellectual discussions I have on a regular basis regarding Trek lore, starship concepts and STO gameplay experiences. In my RL existence I have never met a single science fiction fan, much less persons who are competent in military SF discussion like what we see on the STO boards.
Definitely true it's a good thing to feel burnt out - in this case the burnout phase started relatively early before I went into a descending spiral of frustration. Which is a good thing. So I can actually communicate how I feel.
Not many communities out there on the internet are acceptable to my 'trolling' so that's why I wanted to write my thanks
I'm making my second 'proper' STO youtube production. While in the new Fleet I don't have access to a large pool of Trek-oriented players (and there are no tactical RPers yet - have to train my own), they are far more adaptable, open minded, and appreciate when I provide advise on tactical command and control methods and proceed to implement them in Elite missions.
