How STO realy is from a point of an ordinary player...
I came to the attention that the shitchat about sto keeps on going: Im going to do this only because someone needs to put up a word against those not even knowing what they write:
1. STO is PURE F2P even better than LOTRO since it started surpasin even purly made F2P games from the stard. 2. One can grind ALL the gear ingame with the Dilithium system: now the point why many argue that they only want money is that most of the people playing are WESTERN PEOPLE. Eastern games are more about grinding/Killing masses of enemy's then questing: STO is just that: a game where you can invest time in grinding to get what you want but have some of the best Storybased Quests out there in MMO's. 3. The Combat in sto shure lacks some ballance ... The Dev's themselve said that PVP is inballanced and needs improvement! so why arguing about OP stuff if this game is not even close to what it will become in the future? 4. The ships you can have even without paying or grinding are more than powerfull enogh to handle PVP. Its Team Based after all not just 1 ship wich is the best wins! Know the enemy and you will win (there are armor's against all kinds of dmg so a wise pvp player should adapt to the situation!) 5. Like said bevore this game is as far from finished as WOW is in my opinion a good mmo ... shure its big but hey ... it got no real story and even the newest addons just insert stuff that no one needs (Endgamecontent is identical in every MMO : 1. PVP 2. Instanzes 3. Grinding stuff) but STO actualy puts storry in this too. New Romolus for example: Got its ground area's where you help specific people in their things . If your reputation is high enogh you can even get into a story of coruption and betraial! wherest in most mmo's you get a instanz with no story and just harder enemy's. 6. yeees your more powerfull than most things there: thats because it got the same reason why SWTOR is a briliant game (but sucks in F2P compared to STO sadly): YOU ARE A HERO CHAR LIKE PICARD OR KIRK! remember the defiant challanged a Neg'var and won? or the all but powerfull Scimitar its♥♥♥♥♥wiped by the enterprise with quantum torps? ... or sadly voyager pwns the colective into stoneage? ... Even for the non treky's out there or those who dont know what i said earlyer now the translation: imagine a Battleship from the sice of a small town (Scimitar) facing something it would pwn like the bismark uterly destroyed the HMS HOOD (R.I.P. HOOD AND BISMARK) and actualy looses the battle cause of tactic and some luck!
So all in all STO is great of being an MMO even Star Trek Haters gonna enjoy ... shure the char optics are all but great (PLS the japanese have the best for that why not use it!)
Thats all from me for now. I hope you understand all of it cause i give a goddam♥♥♥♥♥♥about gramma or something like that. Its more important that someone understands you than something that is written right just for the old people who shouldnt tell the youth what to do and not in online games! they are the only freedom one has alone on the world.
