So about a week ago, I decide to give STO a whirl. Considering I got the game for less than a pack of cigarettes and get the first month free, I didn't feel I was taking that huge of a risk. I cannot stand cash shops, but as I said, as a life long ST fan I was willing to give this a go for the first month for pocket change.
I've reached grade 10 Lt. and I am wondering in roughly a week, and I am wondering if there is anything substantial to this game. I feel like I have run the same 4 missions countless times. Any time I have tried to complete my arena missions, the queue never fills up.
I've felt this way since about grade 5 Lt. I've been pushing myself through that feeling, trying to catch any glimpse of Star Trek feel (which I have been disappointed about) and telling myself "once you can start getting in new ships, it's going to be more fun."
But is it? Have I pretty much exerienced the core of the content of the game? Is it just the same kinds of missions over and over all the way to the cap? Or is the content kind of doled out slowly over the ranks? Or is it just the same thing with new ships, abilities, equipment and crew members?
I feel like I've spent 75% of my time in the game so far sitting staring at a ship traveling on its way to nowhere.
Please don't misunderstand me. I am not here to bitch or kick up dust. I am just trying to figure out if I am a lost cause for this game. If the old axiom of "if you don't really like it right away, you never will" applies here. I don't hate it, but its definitely not very "Star Trek" to me and as a game it has been a little on the boring side so far.
But I am totally new and haven't even hit Lt. Commander yet so I am trying to be realistic and give the game the benefit of the doubt.
So let me know vets, have I pretty much had the STO experience by now or is there plenty of new stuff around the corner of higher levels?
I really hope that *insert game name here* will be the first game to ever live up to all of its pre-release promises, maintain a manageable hype level and have a clean release. Just don't expect me to hold my breath.
