Everybody wanted to imagine that this was going to be some kind of uber planned war, but it is only the last hours of beta.
Let me explain you what is going on. The universe as you know it (The Beta Universe) dissapears tonight, but not because the server is closed. It gets assimilated. That's what this is; overwhelming ennemy forces taking over the universe before it shuts down.
No more, no less.
I find it super-funny and I'm enjoting it like cracy
I have to say that tonights End of Beta event was...short of saying lame. Couldn't get enough klingons in the Earth Space Dock area before being obliterated. They were getting whipped before they had a chance. I did try to get my fellow federation buddies to stop and let them come in before battle but that was pointless. Then there was the Borg. At first it was fun, but got extremely boring then they turned extremely hard, then weak again (in space). Furthermore, there was the ground battle of the borg. Another joke. Way too many and had no objectives but try to kill them, over and over and over again. There were areas on the spacestation where there was at least 25+ grouped together trying to block off areas and not doing anything else but just standing there. Only way to make them vanish was to vaporise one of them. Other then that they would shut down and slowly regen back to health. The even was a big failure, no fun no enjoyment.
Hell the build up was a blast, with ships racing back and forth searching for the Klingons and then...
The Dev pretty much said, "Pucker up Buttercups. Take it in the Arse."
No chance of making anything memorable. No event.
Just warp in...get two shotted...repeat ad infintium. yeah, Borg Rockerz all right. Yawn.
Hell, on Sol Dock, the battle against the Drones was almost fun. till you realized that people were rage Quiting, not working together.
Perhaps I'm old and jaded, but I remember when Asheron's Call ended beta. It was wild! A memory that wil not fade. The GM laid waste to the country side, the skies filled with fire and shooting stars, and even the spawns started to freak out. Then we all partied, GM and players.
Here I just heard a half dozen people say that if this is what to expect, screw it they would go to MAG, or Terra, or some other game.
was fun when the cubes finally got there but the dieing got old prity quick would have been nice if they allowed us instant lvl 50 so i could have had a crack with a defiant agasint the borg cube but oh well.. bed time, off to dream of a fresh start..
I got stuck in Risa with the borg and couldn't escape - id warp to sector , try to go to Sol - but noooo you can't escape- just kept sucking me back in
Yes, this is why the event is fail. Even if you wanted to spend the last few hours of Beta flying around and site-seeing or finishing one quest and maybe productively adding to the bug report, you can't. Because you are stuck in an infinite loop where some GM gets to rage over being a GM.
