So as an 'Empire Veteran' you like randomly beaming into the Shipyard when you were headed for First City?

You like not being able to edit your Marauder Boff that likely took several months of Doffing to claim?

You think it's reasonable that 16% of the player-base doesn't have 16% of the development team dedicated to fixing KDF bugs and implementing new content?

You accept that the horribly gimped Bortasqu' not selling is an adequate excuse for there being no KDF equivalent to the Kumari?

You think it's great that the KDF can unlock the Embassy tailor and find there's no new clothes to buy in there?

Or that it's been a while since the rep system went live and broke helmets for KHG armor (that you now have to buy with Dilithium) and there's still no fix whilst the Kumari gets a patch the next day?

Seriously, I'd love to know - obviously you're a KDF player - you don't have an issue with how the KDF are 'maintained'? At all?

Not calling you a liar Brandon, but I've only just now spotted my third Andorian ship.

Have yet to see any in the 30 STFs I've run between the release and today.

Tons of Ambassadors, dozens of Breens, handfuls of Chimera and Steamrunners... but only three Andorian ships.


So who in the chain of command can we ask for real numbers? I would very much like to see them for myself, as would many of us here? Perhaps if we asked the right people, a "STO Annual Report" or something could be issues with cold hard numbers!
VORTA: I have heard disturbing reports -- we were told that you are grinding up Jem'Hadar exchange officers in a blender and turning them into training manuals?

STARFLEET CAPTAIN: Lies, I assure you. We would never do such a thing. It's really more of a giant press than a blender.

My response is more 'go with it' than actually liking or disliking these things.

As I've generally said above, I don't have an issue with the game as a whole, and I don't have an issue with many of the minor bits, even when I'm affected by them. But neither do I actually support those things staying unfixed/unchanged/etc. I'd like it to change, don't get me wrong, but I'm content with mostly waiting for what's next.

After all, I liked the game at Open Beta. Everything so far as only added onto that, and will likely stay that way for me, for at least awhile
Was named Trek17, but still an author.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'. I have nothing against the game/devs, nor any particular wish to talk bad about either, or praise most decisions. Still, it's better to be positive than cynical.

The fact is.. not everyone is going to be happy, and most of the time there are good reasons for it. Many of them have great ideas to add as well.

Then there are some that will never be happy, with anything... ever, no matter how much attempt is made. The only response you'll ever get from them no matter how much sense you make is a rant on just how wrong you are. (In fact, I'm already waiting for a counterpoint to this lol)

For either one of these, their voices will always be the loudest in every thread, regardless of the thread's intent, because people that are fine with the way things are usually don't post all that much here. This is directed at no one in particular. It's just a pattern I see in every MMO forum. So, in the end, I say just live and let live here. Let people voice their complaints. Everyone has their reasons for them.

Now, on topic: What I do hope for (especially since it's been mentioned in another thread) is after the PWE zen sale, Cryptic will throw in a STO specific ship sale. One of these is truly long overdue, IMO.

Thanks for the sale.

It is amazing that this sale happens right after the Andorian Escort comes out... such wonderful timing. I think it has to be because the Andorian Escort is not doing as well as Cryptic wanted and the "pot" is starting to run dry for them because of the Fleet Mark Controversy.
