I find it all very interesting how polarized this community has become on what and how Cryptic introduces things to the game. Me, I could care less at this point what they do. I have basically moved on...

Neglecting PvP endgame
Neglecting Exploration
Neglecting Crafting
Neglecting the Foundry
Neglecting long standing bugs
Neglecting a real endgame

I mean, imposing monotonous grinds on limited content for fleet star bases and personal reputation that grant you gear to do those missions you just did a little bit better as endgame??

All the flashy new ships, all the new enemy groups, all the new one-off missions, pretty zones and artwork are pretty much not going to be able to make up for poor game systems.

So again, instead of a PvP endgame, repeatable fun exploration endgame, or a real crafting system...we are going to get dinosaurs with lasers and another reputation and fleet holding to grind. I mean when it is put in that perspective...

God yes, I am sick and tired of Fleet Starbases. We originally wanted them as a private place for members of our fleet to gather and have fun. Instead they actually turned it into the endgame content. And you know what? My KDF Fleet quit the Fleet system and my Federation fleet isn't going to do this retarded new spire content, because we got to work on the stupid mines, where we just started our Tier 2 upgrade!

PvP, all they had to do is just add a few frigging maps, thats it!

Exploration...........it's a no brainer, so many great ideas been posted on the forum. Instead, all we got is just random mission generator nonsense called Exploration Clusters that has nothing to do with exploration!

Crafting........so many possibilities, but they had to put the new stuff in these stupid Reputation Stores.

Foundry...........so neglected that it takes literally months to fix major problems.

Bugs...........oy.........the lack of pesticides has turned this nice new home into a slum.
NO to ARC!

Season 9.5 = STO's NGE is Here! Welcome to the Grind!

New Crafting = It's not Crafting, is an overblown Reputation System.

Heheh. . . dinosaur wars. This is going to be fun xD

As to all the gripe on this, what's the point of a game if it can't be fun? True, there will be a few that won't like it, so don't play that particular section. Ignore the sphere, the dinos, and the new rep. Not like they chained you to the desk and force you to play it. It is a game, and supposed to be fun. New ideas come out to try and reach the largest amount of fans out there. We have robot people, spider people, squid people, human people, and now dino people. My opinion has it as fun, others think so, some don't. That is fine. But to continue to bash it before it even comes out? For the past three years with every new thing that Cryptic has brought to the table, there have been people that have said it was the end of the game. So far, the fan base keeps growing, and Cryptic keeps making money. Doesn't seem like doom to me.

Again, like it or hate it, its coming. If you dont like it, dont partake in it. Just dont debunk it until you have tried it. Who knows? You might enjoy being eaten alive by a Rex

I'd have to reread all your previous posts in this thread topic to see which way you are leaning again before I comment as to your exact psychological and social conditioning reasons why you would do such.
Cruisers do not suck at DPS and Escorts are not Tanks. If you think this, you need to reread the definition of Tank.

Exactly. Remember when we used to be able to choose our PvP map? Solar Wind, Cracked Planetoid, or Briar Patch? That was fun and we hoped they would add a few more. Instead they just combined them into a general 'Arena' queue and added way too much P2W without fixing any balance. I quit PvP'ing at that point. Had a lot of potential but it was completely ignored. PvP is essential for the long-term success of any MMO.

It seems like you are willing to dish out criticism but criticize the devs or yourself and you get bent out of shape. I don't think that's how forum works. Guess we agree to disagree.

Yep! Even announced weeks b4 the actual poll was put up at the Conv and on Priority One Podcast.

But, it was the 'players choice' not some Dev saying what he wanted and 'made it so'.
