I played the sphere yesterday, I must say I'm disapointed in the whole thing.
Settings is lovely for side seeing but the rest sucks.
It's so unstartrek, yes it has the ships and yes it has the chars but that about it.
O and yes in startrek there are combat times looking at DS9, TNG and Voy you will see battle a few times but most off the time it's puzzle your way true.
Set up a diplomatic stuff, or tend at a hearing you know the basic stuff.
Even for klingons there are stuff and puzzle's to find.
I found Stwor even better written and more fun then STO is right now.
I wish they never went F2P then we didn't have all this rediculous grind stuff and a game you play with a good storyline.
Keep on going never give up!!this is what you want find
stop posting gold selling google searches
the age of launcher... is over...!! the time of the ARC has come!!!!!!!!!
One ARC to rule them all, One ARC to find them,
One ARC to bring them all and in the darkness bind them!
actual joining date = no one cares!!!!
This season was a failure, without having access to stadistic data, just by looking in game, there was nearly no more people that a normal day, it have no comparation with the influx of people in s7.
The new battle zone looks really good, the art work is outstanding, but is really boring to play, 0 challenge, i complete a full capture 2 times in a row without die even once, and i suck in ground lol. It will be a desert in 2 months, just like happend with nukara, and new romulus adv zones, people will go back to do ise/cse/kase.
More grind holding? yeah, small-medium fleets will love it, another kick in the ****. After the failure of this new season i hope cryptic wake up and bring NEW content with hight replayability, like pvp based content, is the only true end-game content with infinity replayability, and foundry (and a mix of both, foundry pvp based maps/modes, people can design this for all tastes). True co-op PvE content, no more shoot-2-times-instant-win-missions, something that require true teamwork and effort, with a reward according to the effort, something that can actually KILL YOU for a change.
People get bored of adv zone very easy, people do featured episodies a couple of times and get bored (thats why the are giving u almost 500 lobis, is the only way of people playing again the same missions over and over)
I want to see Season 5 type STF's/Missions return.
You know, where you were not locked up behind a time-gated reputation grind, but were actually playing for rare coveted loot drops, drops you had a chance of getting every time you played.
Its also rather depressing that the old STF's still remain the most challenging pieces content, and thats even after their difficulty was nerfed even further along with the power creep.
I want epic insanely challenging missions that require proper teamwork and planning with little margin for error, alone with equally epic rewards and loot drops.

I just played as I would normally play new content, and realized "Oh hey, I don't actually have to grind at all, I can just do what I normally do (time permitting) and have all the commendations I'll need to get to tier 5 in about seven days".
I've had seven commendations and more than 1000 marks, and I haven't been trying to grind.
I don't know where you guys are getting this huge grind from. If you play the new content pretty much at all, you shouldn't need to grind.
Most players play written missions by players, or players that make missions or something like that.
You ask why, well for one thing the storylines are great the missions are good but I guess thats why they won't get all the tools or the writers would write better missions then the Cryptic self.
Anyway I agree how do you see any fun in shooting the whole time ?
I rather had a good dialogue about the voth, first time I read they came to STO I wondered are we finally going into the Delta Quadrant finding the Voth and try to negotiate peace with them, Then when I saw the part with worf I was some what impressed particular in the end where the enterprise says were locked out because of Omega. For a minute I thought are they finally going to learn are they finally going to give us a stunning mission, well that didn't take long before they start babbling about the voth lockbox and the rest you can Guess. Bran says it would be a lot of fun, well I for one still don't see the fun and I'm not even a Vulcan.
If they made something in the trend off the Worf mission and the Tutorial that would be breath taking to be honest I'm disappointed in Cryptic this is just a waste off our money right now and I hope they will rectify this mambo jambo off what they call Season 8....
