I would rather have had ground combat more like Planetside, tactical FPS style, but I enjoy STO ground combat anyway. I wish they would steal a feature I saw in the Star Gate Online beta, you got a defensive bonus from shooting from behind cover in that game.

I'm glad I'm not alone in this. I'm suprised by how much I like it everytime I beam down with an away team. I just finished Treasure Station with a group before the server crash and it was a blast.

Good controls, good animations, good pace and it feels like an episode.

Although I hated it until I learned how to set a rally point.

I too prefer ground battle. Sure, it has some areas to improve, but that'll come. I don not dislike space battles, but I find ground battles more engaging and fun. I'm glad they included a healthy dose of both in the game!

I think they're a bit slow. But acceptable. I've seen worse.

My tactic is similar. I equip all my BOs with expose and I equip myself with 2 exploit weapons. But my team uses AoE exposes and I use AoE exploits. Cones works best for my team.

I enjoy it. It's better then Tabula Rasa lol.

I just wish that it didnt lock your facing to the enemy that you tab target... you should be able to break that with right click so that you can AOE where you want to, and run with out exposing your flank in certain situations.

Treasure Station is one of the better ground missions, actually. I also enjoyed it.

I like it too, it's a nice change of pace from the space fights, which I also like. It's even more fun trying to figure out what stupid things my NPC away party is going to do in the middle of a fight. Will they aggro just 1 mob in the room? Two? The whole room?

I love ground combat. Haven't tried pvp yet, but every thing else seems good to me. Didn't do OB so i never had the option to auto fire, so i don't miss it. The camera can be goofy sometimes, but all you do is rotate the camera with your mouse, no biggie.
