Surely as a fellow gamer, it would be better to find out why they are not happy with the changes, instead of thinking you are better then them. Don't you want more people playing this game, thus hopefully enjoying and spending money, keeping the game afloat?
In some ways, you and those other "supporters" are the ones that are ruining this game.
Work that one out...
you tell me I am arrogant yet, you have such arrogance that you assume you are better than me, I personally love STO and for those who quit it is either due to temper being flared or just childish rhetoric of "wah someone took away the easy paths to get free stuff" Belive me I have been here since the start, I have seen these kinds of things happen.
people are acting like this is a huge thing that will drive many players away....well guess what, when dilithium was first introduced people were the same damn way only then they were much more vocal and showed stats about how it is going to cut into PWE and Cryptic s budget.
yet just the opposite has occurred.
btw I support season 7 now because it is still in the ******n temperance stage, it has bugs that no one thought to report when testing it in tribble still.
plus those who quit over a "Few" changes are just throwing temper tantrums, I have seen it in many games, the craze usually dies fast when people realize the things they assume to be big are tiny in comparison to what they really have on their plates.
I have seen threads where people complained the Rep system is going to be a drain on EC. I laughed heartily at that because its bull crock, I spent maybe 100k on the mats needed for 4 separate projects.
I have seen threads where people threatened to stop paying PWE and Cryptic altogether...I knew some of them and saw they bought vesta classes. this made me chuckle.
I have even seen people claim cryptic is forcing people to buy zen in the pattern that is laid out, yet there is the Peanut labs surveys which are great for getting zen quick and free, like the gamefly survey, it pumps out 1,200 zen in most cases, and you can sign up then quit with no charges made whatsoever.
People assume because there is a ruckus over one or two things that the entire season is broken, many people have been begging for "into the hive" for years and now that we have it, they feel they need to complain about how the "easy ways" to get dilithium are gone. and not to mention, we have a new sector, the closest thing to trek lore with the aiding romulans bit, hell its Romulans, something people wanted more closure on.
so yea I feel those who quit made the game better by their absence because they would not be sending a message to cryptic in a threatening way. when one player leaves its nothing, if 1,000 players leave its something to be glanced at, if 30k players leave then its a threat. by them quitting they are not helping anyone, they are not contributing to making the game fun in any way and they are just griping which ruins everyone elses time.
if they feel that a few non essential changes are preventing them from playing the game then they are the ones who had a flawed logic as to what the game is.
Season seven is the best exsample of how PW can cause players to quit. For exsample/ If we had any EDCs left over from season 6 it turned into a reward box for your efforts in STFs. problem is you can use it until you unlock tier 3 of the omega reputation!!! Thats like saying here you go here is a reward for playing our game but you cant have it even though you have already earned it you need to earn it again!
Also the borg set has been completely nerfed! My build and setup for my toon had to be changed because PW couldnt just leave it alone. I have no problem with changing content in fact i welcome it but only when it doesnt interfere with Everybodys characters.
I used to be able to tank cubes and now i die just by flying by them!!! Another thing is the annoying noobs and bad players whining that the game is unbalenced causing PW to make it to where we have to do projects now to earn set gear?????? what the hell for? now I have to wait a full day before a project even finishes to get anything when before I had more to do by doing stfs collecting gear and "earning" my sets. they didnt make it easier they made it more anoyying. The projects should at least be finished when you fill them and not make us wait a full day and a half of doing nothing just to wait for it to finish.......anyway i hope something changes soon because I will not get back to gold if they keep making bad choices like this!!!!!!!
whine...whine ....more whine....DON'T whine and just leave STO...not being insultive but that is what hurts them the most in their pockets...for real
there is that saying don't count your chickens before they hatch
You were the one that brought up the NGE, not me. If you want to compare S7 to the NGE, go right ahead. But that means STO has many more years ahead of it. But I'm sure you werent thinking of that little piece of information when you brought it up, so you go ahead and keep backpeddling away from your own example
