Everyone has a day off from work so everyone should be able to play, if you don't, you need to find another job. If your fleet is so small that you can't get 5 people together at any given time, you need to recruit or go find another fleet. Besides, it's a que event so you'll be provided teammates if you can't find your own. Your personal scheduling conflicts are not relevant to anyone else and shouldn't be included in feedback. Complaining for the sake of complaining is a waste of everyone's time.
Cryptic seriously needs to stop going down the path of "events" that are only active at certain times. The already existing ones weren't too bad, as they are mostly just relatively rewarding fun diversions that aren't required for "completion" of the game, but one that gives purple Mk XII space gear? Not cool. Any queued event with that type of rewards should always be available, except for a cooldown after each run like the STFs have. (Edit: Even if, for balance reasons, it's decided the cooldown must be one day, or two.)
A game that dictates "you must play the game at this specific time to acquire the best stuff" deserves to rapidly lose the respect, patience and custom of its players. If STO wants to be part of our lives it should fit in around our lives, not the other way around.
I completely agree and CAN speak for those in the fleet I am in.
I mean the Borg ground invasion was bad enough .... NOW THIS!!!
Nice mission, BUT:
- when F2P launched and a lot of people raged on the forums, I was defending Cryptic, and saying that a change doesn't have to be a bad change. But I stand corrected. Casual players and lifers are slowly but SURELLY being forgot. What is up with a timed event? I'm in EU and ussually these time slots are not EU friendly ( with some exceptions lattely). But I choosed to play as a lifer because I want to be able to login when I have time ( because I actually work for a living) and play cassually. This game is starting to be a grinding game. NOT COOL AT ALL.
I'm starting to be dissapointed.
