All I can see here is two people (or possibly just one) not giving a damn about the others opinions, believing absolutely sure that they're right despite all supposed evidence from the other...

That's not a good thing Maybe I'd join the conversation, but I wouldn't know where to start

Perhaps instead we should just say this: Cryptic does have a right to do their content their way, but their handling of it is questionible to some, and move on. Now can we get to the original point?

So in typical craptic fashion, as if some higher power is slamming you with proof that these guys don't have the least bit of interest in putting quality into their work, the t4 romulan reputation plasma torpedo isn't the one that its supposed to be. Its almost as if they put in a generic place holder for the actual torpedo launcher. Hmmm... unfinished, broken? either of these descriptions are appropriate.

Guys, wth are you doing? I think we deserve some answers here. There is no justification for this level of screw up. Seriously.. bring in some consultants to help you get organized, or hire some people that have drive and dedication to get the job done right.

People here are getting to the point where they expect new content every month, and soon it will be every Thursday patch.

Eventually, with all the bits and pieces that the developers are putting into the game, which really, since the game went F2P has increased more then the previous time before they launched and F2P happened.

A few maps to make a new featured series of episodes isn't as much work as outright modifying big parts of the engine to add reputation that people here on the forums wanted, expanding the fleets etc.

So if they keep giving us a bone, and patching it to make it better a week or two later, who cares, at least we get new content.

My Steam ticker is at 400 hours for this game, verses the 12 hours it took me to beat Call of Duty Black Ops 2, and that game will never get any expansions like STO does. I am pretty sure it took me ~60 hours just to get to level 50 in the first place.

Hell look at games with much larger studios and financial back where they are.. TOR barely could hold subs due to its issues they didnt even make a year before plunging F2P with one of the worst micro markets i have ever seen.

Better yet..have you seen Diablo 3 put out by mega developer BLIZZARD and all its issues and it literallyhas parts that did not make it to release yet. Heavy nerfing done to items in games and the destruction of what made Diablio 2 last so long with the now big push to aid casuals and blow off the elitist niche market the game series had.

STO for its age is doing pretty good. Not the best, but still above the grade. Most games do not start becoming strong until the 5th year. Hell eve online is on its 18th expansion since 2003 and only the last few expansions has it been fixing issues from 2003 to now.
i expect more for an mmo being open for three years.. rift is kicking this games but as far as customer support, content releases, and general playability.. even though tor had to go f2p sooner than anyone would have thought, it is still twice the game this game is, there is more content in the release of tor, than there is in the combined three years of sto...

also, blizzard as you knew it did not put diablo 3 out, nor are they running wow as of now.. they sold out (to whom i cant remember, but they are no longer developing the game). blizzard is alive in name only now.. still, diablo 3 is rouphly equal at launch, to the amount of content sto currently has over three years...

ive said it before, sto needs an expansion. something to reinvent the wheel and *double the content.. sto needs this wow factor...

You're expecting high standards from an MMO that doesn't have the same numbers as Rift?

I'm just saying, Cryptic's team was (and still is) smaller than most MMO teams, and they're doing the best they can currently, whatever people's opinions of the results. Give them a small break here

I Believe It was Activision That Bought Blizzard. But Even with the Ownership Change It is still the Same Development Studio Name Pushing it.

Activision bought, and owns, and operates Blizzard. But Blizzard is still the development studio for Diablo, WoW, Titan, etc.

Fun Facts Time! Back at the end of February this year, Blizzard laid off 600 employees.
Almost none of those employees were developers. That was nearly all from support teams, HR, QA, Marketing, etc.

Cryptic, in total, currently has less than 1/4 of the # of people they laid off.

It appears you have identified the problem in need of attention.
