Why do players slave themselves so much....relax take a chill pill it's only a game.



unless you want things NOW NOW NOW then well yeah time to slave.

Because if they close this one then five more will take its place... better to consolidate the rage here and hide it in the discussion thread rather than under feedback where it belongs.

Well, I think this is enough posting for one night, or at least for the moment. I think now I'm going to log in, and for a change I'm gonna make me a KDF and just focus some good ol' rage on NPC ships doing Empire Defense. My other characters can have a night off, I'm too aggressive right now to play Fed.

Yes, and as Chris on stoked once said, time gated missions aren't the way to go. People grinding IOR's is just another example of Chris and the rest of us being proved true. People are tired of the same fleet grinders over and over that can only be done at X time, which isn't convenient to those of us that have odd work schedules.

I work have a full time job, have kids have a life, I get maybe an hour or so in a night in front of the PC.

The 30 min founarys ment I could do a farmer then maybe do a little mission, The Corsairs is a great little story 10-15 minutes long, this got me some FM dill and EC from loot for my toons.

I felt I was a active member of my fleet and enjoyed the game MORE because it hid the grind.

I don't have the time for hours and hours of grinding, I don't want it.

Im voting with my wallet, gold being canceled this weekend.

It's not now now now... I have been working on the starbase for 7 months... I wouldn't say that's instant gratification. The constant changing is just getting old. You find a way to make it work and still have time play other missions and then, oh no, we have to change it again even though people are earning it according to the guidelines put forth.

I actually kinda liked Enterprise except for the last episode. But Enterprise seems to be Star Trek's red headed stepchild and good for a chuckle.

People are really liking my video lol.

Ditto. My Klingon fleet has been grinding it's eyes out to get from tier 3 to tier 4 for the last 2 months. Omg, it's so fast!!!

From the first page of this thread.....

"Remove all rewards from Foundry missions, at least until a better means of sifting through the missions is found. I consider this to be a fairly draconian solution to the problem, but may lead to less hatred after the initial storm blows over. "

"There is serious wisdom in this as a short term solution."

hippiejon


And you may find this familiar from the second page

"Both systems of rewards worked against the story-tellers, while working for players who needed stuffz in the least amount of time for the most amount of stuffz.

If there is no alternative to that trap, then I say remove the trap."

Kirksplat


For some strange reason, some of the supporters of this debacle expect us lowly masses to be devoid of reading skills.
Most JJ Trek hate = IDIC fail.
