I just want to say, "Thanks for everything you do." I think people tend to look at the negative rather than the positive, and this tendency shows up often on the forums. You have created a great game for sure. There's a reason I came back after being away for a number of months. It's fun!

Sure, there are definitely places where you could improve: testing (Tribble), balance (PvP), etc. but I think you have done a great job considering your resources and everything that has happened over the past 2 years.

Some of the good things I have seen since launch:

Klingon PvE/Story
A plethora of ships from which to choose
An updated skill tree that conformed with what players wanted (no restrictions based on weapon type or ship)
Foundry (maybe not as much a success as you would have hoped, but still an awesome resource)
Continued attempts to improve PvP balance (despite the fact that there have been issues with it since F2P)
Increased level cap
Better missions with a higher quality
Mission replay with level-specific rewards
Doff system
Little things (like being able to mount cannons on non-escorts, minimal currencies (not 20 different ones), fleet tags, no game-breaking bugs, increasing the pitch angle)

Some of the great things about this game:

Customizability of characters/ships (with only a few exceptions)
Variety of ships with different strengths and weaknesses (difference between DSSV and RSV is huge with minor stat differences)
Variety in space builds (skills, BO powers, traits, ships, captain class, weapon type, weapon bonuses, equipment, consoles, devices, etc.) ^^^^^ really a big deal! I love that about this game! No cookie-cutter builds!
Feedback from Devs (replying on forums, Ask Cryptic, chatting in-game)
It's Star Trek with phasers and stuff!

It's been a bumpy 2 years, but I just wanted to thank every member of the Cryptic (and PWE) team, both past and present. We may disagree on a lot of things (*cough* Fed carrier *cough*), but you have built a fine game that people enjoy! I can't wait to see what you have in store for us with Season 6!

Out of curiousity, what do you say to the two plus year veterans who have not been enjoying their time here, as the sparse content additions are all time-and-money-gated, and continually further and further divergant from the IP source material? What do you say to the lifetimers who are kind of tired of being fleeced left and right if they want to continue playing the game? What do you say to the folks who find the requirement of real-money funded gambling for content abhorrent and immoral?

Thanks for all the hard work from me, too. I notice the times you sometimes post, the occasional week-end patch, and I get the feeling you're really doing a hard job and spend a lot of time in your office rather than with your families.

But... Could you do more? Could you do it better? Less newly introduced bugs, more forethought regarding balancing and gameplay issues, more effective QA, better written stories and characters? Is it possible to find a way to do all that without working even more, because I don't think it's the amount of time you put in (if at all, it's so much you're getting overworked). Maybe it's not (humanly) possible, but maybe you just need a better process, or a better way to gather and make sense of feedback and statistics?

I've yet to have anyone force open my wallet and make me buy anything. I've bought what I wanted, ignored what I didn't. /shrug I do want the time gating to stop though, let the time gate be for bonus rewards but tlet people play things when they want to.

There're a number of issues one can complain about but I am surprised you picked the stories. Imho, the storyline writing is amazing and one of the strength of the game. Well, it's probably a matter of taste.

One issue I can think about is about the customer support :S
