Over at the official STO site is a ton of concern over the death penalty. Its rumored to be ship loss but you keep all skills.
In one corner is 2 groups: those wanting a player run economy. To them obviously ship loss is a good thing. and there are the EVE players who say ship loss is what makes EVE a great game
In the other corner are 3 groups against ship loss: pvpers who say the risk will kill pvp. and the wow mmo players who are used to basically no death penalty. Also you have the trekkies who say its against cannon to lose a ship daily.
One dev posted that nothing was official yet so i figured the post would die but its still going strong. Honestly I was a little surprised over the amount of pvp concerns and ex-wow players firmly against a death penalty.
The post is a good way to see what kind of players the community will have possibly at launch. I guess I just assumed this game's community would be made up of mostly ex Star Wars Galaxies players and other mmo vet types. Based on the responses, it would seem there are several who have never played an MMO or just WoW interested in STO.
There also seems to be a strong interest in pvp. I always thought of STO as a PvE game with some minor pvp skirmishes around. I personally will go klingon just so i be cloaked while exploring to avoid pvp when possible.
Anyway, very interesting to see who is following STO. Its certainly not the community I expected.
