You think there isn't anything to do after 2 weeks? I've been here 3 years, since open beta, imagine how I feel :p

Seriously though, I've managed to find stuff to do. For example you can level new characters. Level a character in each career, Science, Tactical, Engineer so that you can experience those career paths and the appropriate kits and powers. In that vein then explore the different classes of ships, fly one character with all SCI ships, then do all Cruisers, then do all Escorts, so you can learn all about how the different ships work and fly.

Beyond that, run the game in hard mode, you are probably running it on normal, if the missions are too easy, change it to Advanced, or even Elite mode! In elite mode you take damage and have to heal yourself and your ship, the damage can add up and reduce your abilities, making the game much harder. This will slow down your leveling.

You can also at end game play all the STFs and get all the Maco/Omega gear for ground and space on all your characters, this will take a very long time. You can play all Elite STFs and speed it up, and get lots of good loot.

You can also aim for completing accolades.

Replying does not mean much. After all it isn't like anyone is twisting his arm to make him stick around.

Usually, when someone is trolling the forums, they won't follow up, and as a result there is a lone, dubious post. This guy is obviously misinformed and confused, and has never tried pvp
When in doubt, (hehe) c4!

my respect to anyone who stays here 3 years n the game and still find anythink to do.



the only answer how to kill some + time what i read here is lvl 2 outher klasses to max but that tkes also 1-2 week / char or in elite mode 3 weeks? who cares.

but i am right? 1-2 weeks max lvl.
1 week more =best gear whats then?

so if really anyone is happy to have 3 space+ 3 ground mission in total ....
i am happy to be a epic utra high end gamer in sto after 3 weeks

i only know it from othere games where~80 totally different raids exist for different groups+amounts,
200 dungeons for lvl and it never come boring, and you never have the best gear or max lvl.

So you're a hardcore gamer that wants a never ending level & gear grind. There's a list a mile long of MMO's just like that, some F2P others P2P. So why waste your time with STO witch is and always has been a casual MMO.

You continue to play STO to "Play" STO after a point. You need to find something you enjoy and simply do it, and if you find that too hard, or simply are not interested then you need to find a new game. After 2+ years this game is not going to change for you, or anyone else, so you need to take it at face value for what it is and decided to either stay or leave.

I'm hanging on for my fleet's starbase, earning accolades, and Foundry missions.

That keeps me going.

One week for best gear yeah? You got a complete set of purple Mk XII consoles? You got a complete set of PvP weapons? (Aka not the stuff from the STF vendor?) And you say you reached wave 9 in No Win, that's either a lie or you cheated. And you say PvP is worthless, did you actually try it? You'd get your ass handed to you like the noob you think the rest of the playerbase is.

I also find it funny you say that Fleet Ships are worthless because they only offer 10% more HP, but otherwise your only concern seems to be better loot that even if it existed wouldn't be better than 5 or 10% than the next best current loot you have right now.

If you want to grind PvE content endlessly for loot so you can fap to your equipment buy Diablo 3 and be happy.

Its nice that you have the maco omega set complete after 2 weeks. I am doing those missions since they were released month's ago and still dont have 3 set pieces together for my mk 12 set.

There is only stupid grind that yields nothing.


As for challenges. Try out something new. New build, new ship. I am currently on the Jedi trip. Trying to slash up Borg with my Laser Sword

Thats refreshing and brings back a challenge surviving Borg in Melee.

What she said. And then some. This what's in it for the end hardcore gamer over the years has gotten old and then some. It's what finally got me to wake up and decide to quit my decade + addiction to EQ. There are people out there that want a decent game to play. one we can relax in or have some moments of sweating it out. The first time I went to the Vault was a pain for me. But was rewarding too. and when I managed to take out a BOP in a shuttle by playing hide and seek with it between pillars because it wouldn't get far enough from the airlock to let me leave? Gotta say that was as rewarding if not more so than getting an epic 2.1 in EQ.

Gaming USED to be about letting you get lost in the game and think and play. Now it's all about I want more shiny stuff or I'm leaving. If you play STO like Diablo or Skyrim you will be disappointed but if you play it to just enjoy a game you can enjoy it. It's what YOU make of it.
