# 1 Limits!
01-11-2013, 03:29 PM
There's a good story by Larry Niven named "Limits," I suggest reading it.

That said, as I play this game it's all I come up against.

For example, my favorite STF is on a 1 hour cool down?

I can only refine 8,000 Dilithium every 24 hours?

End result: I play a lot of SWTOR, that appears to work well without arbitrary limits while I wait for all the STO limits to pass.

Working as intended?

I thought all the limits there were Monetary?

I like STO's Timed ones better.

I fully understand this.

If I wasn't playing SWTOR to pass all the STO limits, then I would be playing some other game.

The point is: Too Many Limits on play driving me to play other games when I would be Happy just to play STO.

How could anyone "like" limits?

We shouldn't need fallbacks.

A good business model would catch and hold players attention, not drive them away.

I didn't say anything about being driven away...

I do MC when I start to feel a STO Over-Load coming on.

In the OP you were talking about game mechanics.
