Oh, I tease the DEVs. I know what they do isn't easy and it takes some know-how. Being an editor, I know how tedious the work can get as it's similar to what I do at times. Yeah, I know I'm not coding, but like coding, I have to go through and make sure there are absolutely no mistakes or things go bad.
My friend took a C++ class in college and he said it can be very tedious. One small typo and the program you are trying to build may not operate at all or as intended. And finding and correcting that one problem can take forever.
This is why I don't mind buying Zen every now and then. I do it with the hope that some of that money ends up in the pockets of the DEVs.
Have a heart. Feed a DEV.
Here's the thing for me, I'm going to be honest here.
I'm an LTS, I also buy zen from time to time. I love Star Trek, this game had a lot of potential. I'm happy to pay the developers to realize that potential.
Unfortunately at the moment, money just seems to be going into the production of more short term revenue producing gambling boxes and no serious content. Please I don't want to hear anyone say New Romulus is serious content, it's a kiddies sandbox.
Heck I would just be happy if my money went to fixing the thousands of bugs.
The sad truth is it's gotten so bad that I would happily accept Cryptic ripping me off even more by opening a bug auction thread where we could donate money towards a bug and once it say reached $1000 or whatever they would have to fix it.
Thats how bad it is.
Heck I would give a kidney just to be able to save my inventory power trays for each ship.
