I couldn't have said it better.

Be smart Cryptic, DO NOT MAKE ARC USE MANDATORY.



My last question is when will it become necessary to play STO?

I personally ind ARC to be a very intresting asset and tool to have and use, for example I have steam, which I use for all my non-Cryptic and Perfect World Games, but when it comes to ARC Im more comftrable in have ARC be my sorta say "bookshelf" to all the games I play with them, which inlude, STO, CO, NW, and BL:R.....


This is my my thought, many of you might not like it..... I do not care.... nor mind ARC.....


Keep up the great work you have done with ARC Beta, Perfect World, and be sure to give Cryptic Studios a Great "bonus" *cough**cough* for making Star Trek Online the best MMO, I've ever played!!!!!!

We're not afraid of it. We just don't want this thing. We don't want a Steam ripoff, so to the rest of us it's hard drive and memory usage that we don't care for. I don't need another friends list, I only play STO so I've got that in-game. Besides the fact that forcing something onto people who are overwhelmingly saying no is just infuriating.

Can Cryptic confirm whether Arc shuts down upon launching Star Trek Online? Or does it stay running.

If it stays running - why? What is it doing?

Please don't accuse people of brown-nosing. That makes us, who hate ARC, look bad.

And I actually think that the devs deserve a hefty raise. They gave me the Battlezone, after all. And Worf VOs. And two kickass battlecruisers. And a Breen raider that is ridiculously awesome, despite accusations of it being a glass cannon (trust me, it's really not. I got 1st in Cure Found elite literally right after opening it. NO consoles, no weapon mods, nothing. Just basic MK 10 gear, and the other guys were in: a bugship, two Avengers, and a Mogh).

So please don't automatically accuse anyone who likes ARC (no matter how much it sucks) of being a suck-up.

Again, read my OP.... I do not want to know.... nor do I care about what you personally think about this.... you don't like it.. simple... don't use it... done... move on...

THIS. See, this is my central problem with ARC. It's useless hard drive space. Emphasis on useless and SPACE--I couldn't even play STO with ARC installed, and I DEFINITELY don't need another friends list. Also, force-feeding us a gimmick is a recipe for ragequits.

You're missing the point. If we do not like it, we will still be forced to use it in all likelihood.

Hey,

Is the plan still to force everyone that plays STO to use Arc in the future?

Simple question above.


I'm trying to keep an open mind about this, but until I know that we will have the option to never run Arc if we so choose, I won't be testing anything.

However, if I would know for sure that it will stay optional I'll gladly try it and provide useful feedback.

I'm not gonna start to list all my concerns about this software here, there are already other threads that repeatedly does that.


Thank you.
