As much as I hated the ole "Corpse drag" of Everquest and "Ghost run" of Wow, there really should be SOME kind of penalty for dying and taking a risk. Right now, it is ZERO risk. Jump in head first in a battle and take out as many mobs as possible before ya go boom, then come back all nice and shiney to take the rest of the threat down. Rinse and repeat = yawner of a battle.
At least in EVE, there was a real risk and you were cautious to engage an enemy. It is really weak and no better than any old shoot em up game like Battlefield 1942 or the like.
Okay when I explode and die I respawn, thats cool, its an MMO, I cant just die, I can see clones, maybe I took an escape shuttle, maybe I beamed aboard a nearby ship to escape.
but all 400 of my crew? What happened to the death penalty? Do I have the best crew starfleet has ever known?!
My guys are the best of the best, they are immortal, hard working drones that never sleep.
Know how I know? the guy in alpha centuri starbase sells crew members to replace the ones that die. (phonton torpedo says it has a 10% chance to kill 10 crew members). But mine NEVER die, so they must just be amazingly leet.
or cryptic hasnt put in the death penalty, or ability for crew to die and not magicaly spawn 50 babies over 10 seconds. Please fix this.
