I am relatively new to STO, will S7 really be that bad for game play?

Give me a break. It's not an alternative.

As for "price gouging" I've never heard anything as stupid as that Purple doff prices crashed, they didn't increase because of the grinder, quite the opposite.

The costs on on grinder are ridiculous, the result no one will use them, prices should increase.

Anyone else have more knowledge than me on this?

As I said earlier - we can definitely expect the usual:

4: Rage posts pertaining to not being to log into the game once the server is back online (with the associated lack of understanding of the sheer number of people trying the same thing at the exact same time: Pending

It's always so predictable.

Will never understand why people complain so much about a game that is essentially free (other that what you opt to spend). If it pisses people off so much....DONT PLAY

Yeah, just saw that. I've requested it to be updated. My OP was correct -- 6-10am PDT.

The game is only free from Real Life money transactions if the individual user in question never converts earned Dilithium to Zen, never buys items from the exchange that were bought with Zen and never takes advantage of fleet holdings that have been paid in part by Zen.

Otherwise, whether you action the transaction with your own money or someone elses... that transaction costs RL life money.

So no, only rarely is it truly free. Though you yourself may not put any of your own money into a transaction, so from you point of view it didn't cost you anything.

Because most people don't think in binary. A game isn't either perfect or not worth playing so why shouldn't people give views on how a game can be improved? Or should I use the same logic you did and say if you don't like the complaining on the forums, don't use them?

OK fine, but as i state, spending by individuals is optional, some choose to, some choose not to, but that should not entitle people to insult the people providing for their entertainment. Coding is not simple, errors do occur and estimates can be off, anyone who has ever done any programming knows that complete times are always estimates,

If people didn't complain here and on tribble, Season 7 would be largely unchanged from the Class 5 clusterchuck it was to the Class 3 clusterchuck it's become
