    I'm still on the fence, from what I have read you cant solo at all it is all group PVE and PVP which is fine but my schedule is crazy at times with a family and a job.  Would be nice to just pop on and not have to worry about how long I have to afk and that sort of thing.  I usually can only group on the weekends and that is only if I'm left alone :D.

    Time lines currently are 10 am - 10 pm eastern.... 

     

    So lots of time to jump on and play if you feel like it (I also have job/family but still make time) :) The nice thing is the PVP matches are very short... so a half hour can get you a few matches. 

     

    You are 100% correct though.. its completely team based (no solo content) - but you can just randomly queue up.... 

     

    Im enjoying the game - but its certainly not for everyone (like every MMO)

    I ended up canceling my preorder.

    GA is a good game, more fps than mmo, but still very enjoyable.  Playing from australia however, the latency is a killer.

    Ive heard this too (I hear its actually quite awful)....

     

    but - they do plan to create an Oceanic server for launch (or shortly after)... hopefully that'll fix the problem

    I am not sure what you are trying to say, are you indicating that you know that STO is not going to work out for you but....you are pre-ordering the game? If you know it will not suite you, then why pre-order?

    Do you do anything but cry about how the game isn't a "real MMO". Get over it already.
