Sto has bad times and good times. Generally for me good times are when FE are coming out or winter event and having fun with mates. Bad times is like when nothing new or when theres problems with servers or bugs getting too many that are obvious to us but not to devs or they dont prioritize them. Unfortunatly were in the bad era atm even with LOR just come out its enjoyment or the new content even tho i dont run a romulan is just terrible atm cos of the server issues and bugs. I feel sorry for the devs that work hard and then have other devs muck up other stuff to have a mix of good and bad with mostly bad coming through the worst of it.

Sto for me generally is only popping on running 2 toons worth of toys i.e buy artifacts run em and then quit and come back to check if i get a nice console later that day. Even with new content i.e missions to try i dont really feel the urge to play them. I think im just sick of it all tbh. The only content i truely used to like was FE and since there not really here anymore or not many as often theres very little for me to really enjoy in sto nowadays. Shame cos it did have its moments.

So its safe to say a good 75% of us players, are not happy with the game ATM...

I used to be on EVERY night, and stay on for hours, now I come on for a few hours at most, and then its a push.

Something about the new content, really messed the game play up.

I would say 100% it is the server problems, for me its killed a good game...

Well until I hear about my Beta test for Morrowind Online, im going to stay for now!

12 nukara marks for an azure nebula vs playing an elite stf.

The new reputation system just isn't working. And once you done leveling your romulan he is just another indifferent dil grinder since you won't be doing rep on it.

Meanwhile your old fed and kling characters still don't have anything new to work on.

Incorrect strategy no.1

I think the realisation of having to go through the rep systems... AGAIN has been off putting for a lot of players.

I love having romulans, I love the ships etc but personally the thoughts of having to grind through even Omega rep again never mind another month of chasing Wabbits for Rom rep or the pitiful marks for Tholian Rep DOES NOT A FUN GAME MAKE...

I want loads of romulans, I'd happily double my stable from 5 to 10 toons with an array of Rom's on both factions and careers, but having to face rep again.... no thanks...

Been there done that, bought, wore and even grew the hemp for my own T shirt on that front.

Make life simple for me to enjoy my toons.... make life easy for me to give you money... make tier 5 rep unlockable for 500 zen once I've levelled a toon through it already.

Rep kept us all busy for S7 congrats, but we're moving onward and upwards now, can we please move past S7 with LOR?

thanks!

I'm with you. Whatever stylistic disagreements I might have with rep systems are irrelevant compared to the point that there is really nothing fun about it.
I'll sell you some weapons from New Romulus. Never fired, only dropped once.

The new Romulan specific content should reward Romulan marks IMO. It seems silly to me that our characters are instrumental in discovering New Romulus, defending it etc., yet once we hit 50 we have to start at the bottom again in terms of reputation.

Just my 2 quatloos, but any Borg related content should reward Omega marks. Any Romulan content should reward Romulan marks. This adds a little more variety other than epohh tagging and STFs for earning your marks. You could at least play through some of the old story missions and get them from random exploration missions as well.

It is my experience that Summer times means a big gain and loss of players for a couple of reasons.

People are getting out of college and getting summer job which means a lot of people who had more time for games are gone now leaving rosters looking rather bare.

On the flip side, younger gamers are being unleashed from high schools leading to an influx of people.

Even with that, with any game there is ebb and flow of people coming and going. I know I take sizable breaks to concentrate on school lest STO consume me entirely. Even then, content that is new only comes out so often and I've been here since launch.

That said, with the launch of Lagecy of Remans got so much stuff, there should be a net gain of people to the game. Retaining those people is something else.

Couch Athletics has been around since launch, changed leadership, got to over 300+ people, then died. Then was revived the following summer, got to over 300+ again but then it died again. (This was pre starbase).

This time around, the renamed fleet has only lost 1 person so far. But the fleet is tiny, and just a harbor for people who want to have a fleet to get people to stop bothering them.
