Considering the latest news as well as previous actions the time has clearly come for Stahl to leave.
I joined STO late S5 and joined a 20 person fleet and had a good time. We we're all interested in the Starbase to come out next season, then it came. The system was clearing against small fleets, especially when a good portion of them are Free 2 play people and it became a bad grind. With some reluctance we disbanded our fleet and joined a mega fleet for so me thought it impossible to get Tier 4 and beyond. Eventually I and a few split from the fleet do to other issues but the story applies to many. And rather then address this problem they made it worst by adding a grind to STFs and instead of a more story lined missions they gave us a modified deferia style. THUS another grind. Not to mention increasing the dilithium requirements but not wear you can get them, heck they cut for a bit till fan backlash was too much. Zen/dilithium prices have dropped do to people buying zen to CONVERT to dilithium nd the lost of subscribers do to these changes. Also to note the Romulan Red Alert doesn't work STILL and while the fed get a discount on fleet ships if the have the zen version. NOT SO for KDF. PVP has vitrually died and the calls for a playable romulan faction ignored and ignored. Clearly Stahl has failed.
what can they do to fix this.
1: program the game to figure out the size of fleet and adjust the cost of base tier to it. And don't say you can't do it with tech today it's clearly possible.
2: get rid of the Fed toon requirement for KDF and you see people go to that side and for the early part of the story do the Klingons invading gorn. Not to mention fix the Zen/Fleet issue.
3: Make a PLAYABLE Romulan side. Every past game made the Romulans playable and just going from the story you have IN game you have multiple option like which side the Rommie Toon can join, Tal Shiar or the new Romulan Republic. They would also bring people in.
4: increase content and rewards in fleet marks and STF as well as dil cap on refining. Give subcribers a larger cap then f2p.
