And while there are a mojority of older players, there are plenty of late 2011/early 2012 join dates right in the first couple threads. Your point? Not sure where you're even going with that, other than to try and imply that the people that have paid the money that supported this game don't matter...?
You're saying the new people hate the game, based on forum posts by different people.
The people who have been bitching for two years are still bitching; this is not news, there is no need to alert the media.
Maybe that's been our disconnect? Reading comprehension? Not what I said at ALL. I said that the tone in there has been getting WORSE, not that upset people are upset. Even when they were upset, it wasn't this bad. My comment was that in a time where STO is finally through with excuses and DOING things again, the tone of the discussion seems to be getting WORSE, and ANGRIER. SHould have eased up, what with all the activity, new content, 2 year anniversary, etc. Instead, seems like it's going downhill faster.
YOU tried to tie it all to subscription date, I'm just pointing out that it's not so happy in there for anyone, newbie or veteran. And so far, Cryptic appears to be whistling past it and not addressing much of anything. Only one that responds to anything is Branflakes, and it's a combo of just editing/closing posts, telling people he'll have a DEV look at the problem (no resolution later, though), or a 'pay no attention to the man behind the curtain' routine. Baghdad Bob wasn't that obvious...
