IsturiIsturi Member Posts: 1,509

I just recently bought STO for 29.99 and I play it as a casual MMO and I love it oh by the way I see other player on STO when I play so it cant be that bad, I am just sick and tired of ppl posting I quit STO just to make STO look bad well so what that is your OPIONION if you dont like the game dont play. I find it rather relaxing and enertaining for my money

THANK YOU STO for a very good casual game.

    Your post is just as pointless as the I quit posts... Its not like its going to change anything.

    You are stating your opinion, just as those who have posted about quitting have.

    You get to state your "opionion" about a game, and those that "quite" can't state theirs?

    STO has about 60-80 hours worth of fun gameplay.  After that, it's bullocks.  That's pretty good for a single player game, but totally substandard for a subscription MMO. 

    Even as a casual player, you'll find that out someday soon.  You'll just have had to spend alot more of your money to realize it.

    If you don't like those threads - don't read them.

    LOL umm this is not the Official STO forums. But thanks for sharing.

    Quite what? Quite good threads? Quite awesome threads? Quite bad game? What?

  • RemainsRemains Member UncommonPosts: 375

    Cant see how it would be so bad..? If you like the game and dont feel that theres any shortage of people, then why does it matter? You shouldnt spend much time on the forums under those circumstances, right?

    And wasnt "I quit threads" forbidden on the forums, or have the moderators gotten sloppy lately?

    I'm glad you picked it up at a good price. I know it can be disheartening to hear some views being what could be considered drastic. If you like it now enjoy it! Just a forewarning you will get to RA5 rather quickly compared to most other MMO's and your play is very limited after that.

    If you're sick and tired of "I Quit" type threads, simply stop clicking on them.  It's not like they're sneaky and you accidentially stumble into them.  You almost always know an "I Quit" thread by reading the thread title.  If the game is so fun, stop wasting your time on the forums and get in game.

    I think all the forum moderators were let go along with the customer support team.

    For the record, when I quit STO I didn't post a thread because I felt my points were already well stated by the thousands of others who quit before me.Plus I highly doubt that Cryptic even cares which is one of the reasons I eventually left. I feel that the questionaire that is given to you following cancellation is sufficient enough to let a company know how you feel about their product. Judging by their sh*tty attitude towards people who have legitimate concerns and thoughts on how to improve it I doubt that the questionaires will be giving any weight, but I'm not too worried about it. I'm not the one whose reputation is on the line with this game and I'm not the one whose trying to make a living with MMORPGs.I'm just the customer whose livelyhood that they depend on.

    I do have to laugh at the fact that even with Cryptics attempts to silence dissent on their forums that the "I quits" are still being posted. Didn't they sticky a thread a few months ago stating that "I Quit" threads would be immediately taken down? Good luck on the game and I'm glad that you enjoy it. Just don't be surprised with the new "I quit" threads that will continue to come with every new crop of players that try the game nor by the lonely feeling you get when trying to find someone to play with.

    The mods have gotten sloppy, there are "I quite" threads that have lasted for 18 pages before they finally get clanged shut.

    In general, I agree that people shouldn't post "I quite" threads, they should be more intelligent about it. Many of these threads are quite decent because the posters state exactly why they are quitting and why they feel that game is bad. If they posted those things without ever making reference to quitting or leaving then maybe Cryptic might read these threads and they might finally "get it."

    two points-

    1. is it financially feasible for cryptic to hire enough staff to moderate all the i quit threads?

    2. people read the sto forums and specifically the "i quit" threads because its much more entertaining than the game.

    IF THE ONLY DEFENCE FOR CRITICISM OF A GAME IS CALLING SOMEONE A TROLL OR HATER, THAT SAYS A LOT ABOUT THE QUALITY OF THE GAME

  • SpiderpopeSpiderpope Member Posts: 69

    Funny..i could have sworn i clicked on my mmorpg.com bookmark not the Star Trek Online forums.

    Also for the record, when i cancelled i didn't create an I quit thread either since i said everything i had to say to Cryptic on the little leaving survey thing they give you. Plus Cryptic censor the opinions that disagree with theirs, so there is little point.

     There were many threads that weren't titled "I Quit" which gave reasonable concerns on the game and ways to fix it. They were ignored by the devs(or one line snide remarks by devs) and used by fanbois to attack the poster. At a certain point you have to just throw up your arms and move on.

    Then again, you could just exercise a little self-control and not read them. Problem solved!

    Now now Ktanner, Cryptic didn't just ignore the complaints. They rolled out that idiot "Q" several times to distract the posters. As soon as he gets unleashed any complaint thread quickly devolves into "OMG! He sounds like John DeLancie in my head!!?!".  Not sure which is worse, being ignored or being patronised by some fethwit pretending to be a fictional character.

    I do admit that paying what is it around 300 dollars to become a lifer then to qet frustrated to the point of leaving STO after a few short moths of game play would be upseting. Still to Bash STO to the Nth degree is just like a child crying over his milk mess. My question to lifer's who left why did you pay that much right of that bat? why not wait until you played to see if you wanted to become a lifer?

     First off, Cryptic talked a pretty sweet deal. I almost bought into it myself. I think people wanted to believe that they could pul it off, that Champions was just an unfortunate fluke. Most looked at the Lifetime as a cash savings. Cryptic simply didn't deliver and mismanaged their community badly. The trouble is, they seem disinterested in doing anything to change that.

    If you're enjoying yourself, more power to you, but you really have no business telling other people not to express disappointment with a product or question why they commited their cash to an unreleased product. That's none of anyone's business. Cryptic is a lousy developer with stubbornly lousy customer service. That is the issue here in its rawest form.

    As I said. if you're happy, then avoid threads that offend you and remain blissfully unaware.
