This game use to be really good, one of the best Sci-fi mmo's out there.
But now, not so much..
From what I've gathered is the Delta Update broke pretty much everything that wasn't broken and made what already was much worse.
PVP is dead.
Ship balance is all ♥♥♥♥ed up end-game. Before Tier 5 was the best, they were expensive but it made sense for them to be. Tier 6 however, ♥♥♥♥ed it all up.
From what I've gathered the pilot spec on a ship with a tank build is broken as all hell in PVP.
The game is loosely Pay-to-Win, I say loosely because you go through a process to get zen coins which are needed to buy top tier items, but the process is painfully slow and on a single accout, you'll never see a profit. It takes up two two months across multiple accounts just to make enough Zen to buy a tier 6 ship.
Constant lag spikes and random rubber-banding that shows no sign of being fixed anytime soon.
Ground combat is awful, hands down one of the worst I've ever seen. Again, no sign's of that changing any time soon.
Many of the planets are bland and boring with no point behind being able to go to them. Worst contender is Andoria, outside of what I think is melee PVP, there's nothing there. No Top tier melee shops, no nothing. No one ever goes there.
Upgrading your gear seems to make game shops pointless, at least to me. Why waste 5,000 EC on a plasma array when you can make a better one for free?.
Upgrading later on can be extremely slow.
Only 3% of the game is voiced, which is fine if it wasn't.. All over the place? You could be having a scripted conversation with your First officer, they have a voice that covers the first three lines of the script then the rest of the paragraph has no voice over, it's just odd is all.
All that is forgiveable if it wasn't for my last point,
THE GAME IS BUSTED!!.
For many users the game wont even load up anymore. It's always crashing, can't even get to log-in screen without it crashing, there are no long-term fixes. Re-starting the game only works a few times, after that not even Verifiying files or re-installing the game will fix it.
In short, this game was once a great game, then delta came along and ruined it all. If I was in charge, delta would of been a update that revamps ground combat, squash bugs and glitches, offered up more Voice-over and improved PVP.
