Oh sure, right up till they destroy the company completely or get their heads out of their collective arse's and see the damage they've caused.

Why? Why can't you enjoy it? I think you should take a more positive approach. Here's an idea. Sit down and watch a few hours of TNG. Then go get yourself a Galaxy Retrofit (if you don't already have it). Switch off the chat channels and go do some exploring, make sure you're not disturbed either in game or IRL.

You'll soon be hooked again. Don't look at how much Dilithium or marks you're making for a week, just play the game, do the events you enjoy, only the events you enjoy, DO NOT grind anything, then come back in a week and see what you've earnt in both dilithium, marks, EC and most of all enjoyment.

AJ, go get a sense of humour mate, you're way too young to be so serious.

I might could do that, but the nagging irritation that I am having to do something I didn't naturally want to do, circles back to the fact I'd rather be doing something else but I can't because the DEVs fracked it all up so there's no joy or reward left in it.

This is something i think more people need to do. In Real life and in game. Stop thinking about their income and just enjoy the ride. You are in command of a freaken STARSHIP, the most advance and wonderful vehicle in the galaxy, and YOU are in the center chair. If you don't want to do an STF, fine, go PVP. Don't want to PVP, fine, Go Exploring. Don't want to Explore, Fine, Play the Foundry. Don't want to play the foundry, fine, MAKE a foundry mission. Don't want to do that?? Find a friend and Roleplay some. You get the picture.

Stop trying to be extrinsically rewarded in this game. Enjoy the game because it is FUN, not because you dinged a new level.
