Ground is awful
Who else thinks they should just remove it?

It is a bit clunky and not as responsive as I would like, but there is more going on than one might notice at a casual glance. Once you learn about exposing/exploiting, flanking, crouching and fine aim, it becomes mildly interesting.

That said, ground combat certainly isn't why I play the game and I try to avoid it as much as possible. (That said, I do appreciate the ability to walk around on foot and would not want the feature to be removed.)

Fair enough.I'd be fine with just walking though, I hate ground combat because it gets in your way in missions and you have to do it.

I agree that the ground combat feels unrefined. Compared to Neverwinter, STO's ground combat really is horrible. They shouldn't remove it, but they definitely need to improve it.

the ground combat breaks up the game play and keeps space comabt from getting stale

That's like eating from the garbage can to keep pizza from getting stale.

It's also one of the main staples of Star Trek.

Yeah I think the ground should comprise of more intellectual challenges and puzzle/investigation type exercises, opposed to constant fighting. Although I guess the same could be said for space.

Ground combat is lacking much thought. Although it wasn't much better in actual Star Trek lol.

Ground (combat) was a mess since launch, they halfassed some "refinements" (shooter mode and such) but it really didn't get much better.

On topic of engine limitations,... if an attack animation (imagine some mass effect close up ability) looks in STO like while I run up to my enemy, accidently trip over something on the way and just "fall" onto said enemy,.... I don't even,...

So...your whole shtick is just going to be going into random threads, complaining about how much you don't like the game, and then linking to a thread wherein you complain about how much you don't like the game.

Nope, I'm trying to get other players attention to the crap Cryptic have been pulling off, I do like Star Trek and the STO "Space" parts but the rest is in no way what Star Trek deserves but if nobody connects the dots or speaks up nothing will ever change or at least influence change.

It needs a revamp but they won't do it. To make it worse I dislike ground, so I put more skill points into space. This makes my ground experience even worse, rinse repeat. :(

I find animations don't always work when aiming and I will randomly run about with gun raised when not aiming or move around hipfiring when aiming. It takes many clicks to get aim working again.

Weapon swap seems slow and clunky. Often I will swap weapons and it takes time to change, I'll still be holding a giant rifle like a pistol!

And everything just steamrolls over me in a few hits on ground.
