While I'm much newer to the game, I share your sentiments.

As far as Secret World, ummm. I was a long-time Funcom customer, having played Anarchy Online since its launch in the summer of 2001. Don't expect too much, would be my advice.

If you have the dedication to play it for a couple years, (and it sure sounds like you do), and if you can handle a brutally merciless community, Eve Online is one heck of a good space game. I played for about 2 and a half years, but it's just too hardcore for me. When your ship is destroyed, it's gone, as in stand by to pay for a new one. You can lose a couple months worth of work in one bad decision.

I ripped the band-aid off and canceled my gold subscription yesterday after seeing the dismal state that the game is currently in after Season 7. I have been a subscriber since day 1 of launch, uninterrupted 33+ months, 1015+ days -- the old fashioned way, not grandfathered in during the $200 LTS money grab promo.

I had hoped to play this game at least until my third anniversary celebration Feb 2013 and way beyond because it had always been my favorite game. But not anymore.

dstahl and developers more than proved that they don't care what the players think and rushed this update -- they were obviously worried about Star Wars: The Old Republic going free to play on Thursday November 15 since they moved S7 launch from the traditional Thursday patch day up to Tuesday.


On the good news side, I found "The Secret World" on sale at Best Buy for $19 so I picked that up. I've always been a Lovecraft fan and I hear good things about this game. I'll transfer that $15 a month I paid to Cryptic (and then their evil overlords PWE) for 33 months over to Funcom, I guess.

I love Star Trek, but I guess I can get my fix from my DVDs. I've been re-watching Deep Space 9 for the umpteenth time and loving every minute of it!
I found that quite poignant.
If the devs don't listen to Willy then their heads are undeniably lodged somewhat close to their genitals.

You are not alone.. my initial thoughts at putting items in those personal projects was "this is going to be awful"
my new saying is "cryptic made me do it" in lieu of the the "devil"

Hehe.... oh come on.... Play breaking the planet if you miss the STFs. It's FUN! And it gives you a nice shiny chunk of dil! If you're good you might get a purple item.
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

Cryptic and PWE have permanmently hurt themselves with this move. AS I've said before the leaders off these game companies have no clue HOW TO RUN THEM! Sthal, you and the other responsible for S7 uninstall it and leave and never return to the gaming industry.

S7 killed STO for me. Thats it. I will stay around until my supply of dil exhausts, maybe if something chnges I will stay. But don't count on it too much.

S7 killed my fleet too. I'm not talking about outlandish grind levels needed for base/embassy projects. There is no more content where we can play tohether and feel rewarded for it. Assembling a good STF team was a social mainstay in my fleet so to speak. Now there is no point in playing STFs.

I can add more things along these lines:

S7 killed DOFFing for many players.

S7 killed our EC income (no item drops in STFs).

S7 killed out trust to Cryptic.

HAHAHA really? Thats how you intend to amend removing of 1100 dil + ecd/proto/tech + item drops? This is your reaction? And all those players who complained are satisfied with this?

New patch went live on Tribble, still no dil rewards for STFs.
In addition, private games were disabled.

Well, f*** you. I will advise my 260-player fleet to look for another game.
