I played cs 1.1-1.6 for over 6 years, battlefield 1942 for 3 years until upgrading to vista cuased my gpu to no longer work with the game..., played world of tanks for 2 years since beta, terraria for 200+ hours, tf2 for 200+ hours, red alert 2 for over a year, rtcw for over a year etc etc. The only reason I stopped playing most of those was because I stumbled across a game I liked even more.
I don't dislike any of those games now and don't even know anyone who dislikes any of those games.
Diff is all of those are mechanically solid, enjoyable games whereas many modern games have you chasing an unlock/progress carrot for a hundred hours that keeps you hoping things will go from bad to better somehow when you finally get to the end of the rainbow , then when you get there you find just another pot of shit.
That is why people hate modern games more the longer they play them.
In the pre-carrot/filling bars days it was obvious within hours if a game was worthwhile or not. (now you sometimes still can but people stick around anyhow because of the unlock/loot fever)

Star Trek Online's endgame is made infuriating because there is a -vast- amount of exceptionally good fan-made missions available that are left to languish whilst the focus is on the STF grind.
STO is not a good enough RPG game at its heart to make playing through foundry missions worthwhile on its own. Foundry missions need to be in the same loop as the rest of the game; they need to come with some kind of (unexploitable) reward as an alternative to grinding STFs.
An alternative that, you know, might actually run the risk of fulfilling the point of any Star Trek game; that you are a captain in bloody StarFleet not some cannon fodder monkey in a tin can...Originally Posted by CROCONOUGHTKEY

Just checking in again: is anyone do be playing this particular video game?

Definitely. There is an entry on the server list thread, with a name for the guild and everything.
Ive been distracted too much by other things to play further, though. (perpetuum online being most of it)

Romulan expansion is out.
And biggest thing (for me): that gave everybody(?) up to three free character slots. So I am finally able to create a Romulan and Klingon character without buying a slot extension.

Well I subbed years ago, so I already had more than two slots.
Anyway, anyone want to start a Romulan Paper Shotgun fleet?

well ill mostly be playing with a friend of mine. but yeah, doesnt hurt to have a fleet up.

just noticed that you end up joining starfleet or kdf if you play romulans anyway. also, why isnt the rps fleet doing the starbase building thing?

If you guys need any money or equipment, throw me an in-game mail (account name is @Akwartz), I'm pretty much a gazillionaire in Star Trek Online.
26-05-2013, 03:17 PM #235
I would love to see an awesome base being built.

I just remembered that I installed this last night in a fatigued stupor.

I ARE PLAY THIS.
You guys (and neverwinter being somehow enjoyable, even if RPS has abandoned it sadface) have convinced me to give it a go. I'm Libiris@sinisteragent, though I've basically just finished the tutorial so far. Having four mooks running around behind me is a strange experience, but the potential for variety with the ships and ground stuff and that is quite promising.
26-05-2013, 07:06 PM #238
it has its moments, but the newer content is definitely better. the romulan stuff so far is excellent.
I hope they keep the amount of quality theyve put in the romulan experience up.
also note: you can play without any grinding up level 30 or 35. after that, you might start doing some of the daily missions to reach the first admiral rank. but thats ok as you get to fly a galaxy for the entire 30 to 40 stretch :D

you even friended me, jg.
also, I have no clue who is running the rps fleet, but they are kind enough to have left a grabbag of equipment for captain to admiral levels.
I wouldnt have a problem doing pvp. the shipcombat system is robust enough to have some sweet tactical fights.
also also, I play a lot with new players. its good to find out details about teams before you just jump in and get shot over and over again. the match level feature is hidden a bit, I think.
