That's funny. 99% of the cry, troll, and flame threads are started by Jan 2010 members.
Exactly. Most people on here didn't bother coming to the forums until the OB. I knew about this game over a year ago but wasn't going to bother signing up. If anything the old guard should be defending it because they have the most invested.
I know the problems with the game and Cryptic I am just able to put my $50 in perspective (aka I blew that amount on a Sherlock Holmes vs Cthulhu game the other week, I have spent more then that on take out over the last two weeks).
oh like my new account? says jan 2010! you see i was BORN at that time and neevr even knew what this game or a computer was WOW! amazing eh?
Is life so sad for you that you go online to descriminate/show elitism because you made this account and had nothing better to do that post day after day before a game was released? WOW QQ don't bother replying to me I'm off to a better place, just slapping you to bring some sense into ya.
You know what I think would help is a "Rants and Raves" thread like they have at the Total War forums. That way admins and moderators can move all trolling or ranting threads to one area while directing people to go there if they want to rant or troll. Now complaints properly explained with logic and etiquette would not be a rant thus contributing to the community in helping devs improve the game.
Those of us who registered accounts early were likely doing it because we heard about it through the mmo-grapevine and decided to sign up for a chance at beta. I'd wager by comparison the majority of the Star Trek fans who joined/picked up the game did so during the games advertising campaigns.
Edit: I've not really noticed any specific pattern personally, just throwing out another useless post into the void.
