You don't have to pay. You do not get to make such requests.

There is such a lack of respect I feel for journalists the more I watch or read what they have to say. On top of that I do not think there are any journalists that would be able to jump onto the game (never seen any of these guys anywhere in the game before either) and be able to do an elite stf.

I paid into the game at launch plus some time after, and am still waiting to get what cryptic claimed the game was going to be.

Who said anything about "enjoyment"? I just ignore the spam and keep doing whatever it is I was doing. It's not like they come up every two minutes. Every twenty minutes, maybe.

And this isn't a "with us or against us" situation. It's a "with us, against us, or indifferent" situation.

Maybe I couldn't afford to pay the monthly fee every month, but the months I could, I really enjoyed myself. Now with F2P, even the subscription players have to pay cash to get the good stuff.
Matter of opinion. Personally, I like most of the F2P changes (most, but not all. And you can get everything for free through the Dilithium Exchange)

Frankly, I'm seeing a lot more hate than righteous customer dissatisfaction. If you (people in general, not you personally) don't like something, provide constructive criticism. Not the hate that's all over this place.

"It was absolutely imperative that we drive into unsafe areas of Detroit to locate one of the very few Del Tacos'

There was never a Del Taco in Detroit. Not during the promotion, and not now. Trust me, I know. During the promotion, there were only three Del Tacos in the metro area. All very safe places. Stopped reading the article there. Ridiculous dramatization.

Why I play: I have a softness for Cryptic

Phew, this might be a landmine, but I'm going to forge ahead anyway. I kind of like Cryptic Studios. There, I said it. Pelt me with stones and half-empty cans of Mountain Dew if you must, but for all of its many failings, this studio has a certain charm and style that I totally dig. I love the emphasis on character creation in all of its games, I like that its products have always been kind to the casual and newcomer, and I admire how the team keeps taking hits (many deserved) but comes on back anyway.

Star Trek Online is a Cryptic title through and through, for all the good and bad stigma that it carries as a result. It's colorful, it's slightly cartoony, it trips over itself to try to do the right thing, and it keeps experimenting with different ideas until the good ones bubble to the surface. It's been a rocky two years, but looking back at where it was at launch, I can definitely say that the game Star Trek Online is now is so much better than it was back then, and this is thanks to a lot of dedication of a few hardworking folks.
Why I advertise for Crpytic...

Well at least your admitted your are a biased and a Crpytic wh...ugh...street corner professional.

And this is where I stop bothering reading anymore fanboyism.

As someone who joined the collective chorus, "Del Taco? Never heard of them.", you seem to have missed the point. The observation is that Del Taco was an obscure chain of restaurants with whom to pair with for the promotion. Most people really were SoL if you were passionate about Star Trek and wanted that pet.

Constructive feedback such as "Hey, I'll gladly pay for everything found in the Ferengi Boxes if put on the C-Store"? I think that qualifies as feedback and not hate.

Do the Devs *have* to do that? No. But it's feedback. Feedback that has been met only with silence.

It's odd how quickly constructive feedback *can* turn to hate when only one side is willing to engage in discussion.

Did I miss the point? I understand the Del Taco promo wasn't accessible to all people. I'm sure it was frustrating to them. Who knows, maybe that was the best promo partnership cryptic could do. Better than no promo right?

I felt the need to point out that the writer was exaggerating his story to garner more sympathy for his frustration and enthusiasm.
