Are you Gold? That would put you ahead in the queue or right into the game if only silvers are waiting.

No, just a little ol' silver.

Wanted to see if my luck would hold out, but alas, I tried a short time ago and was about 13,000th in line, LOL.
This morning it must have been a combination of divine providence and time of day.

It certainly looks like Legacy of Romulus has succeeded at getting the fans attention, at least.

If that corresponds to financial success, I guess we can expect Legacy of Cardassia in a year or two.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

I should feel guilty, when I logged in today the queue was over 20k!!! I was like omg 20k, then zap I was in... I should feel guilty... but for some reason I don't. As a lifetime member I guess the old adage is true, ya get what ya pay for... thank god I got it during a good sale a while back.

I was in the test beta but glad it's live now. Had a blast playing with fellow fleet mates today, I sooooo love our fleet.

edit: oh yeah, and the rage posts at the sto forums are just funny to read!

With the drop in price I've decided to go lifetime (it would cost me nearly as much to get the 1000 vet reward paying monthly).

So very nice to login and see "You are 9th in a queue of 20,000" before quickly entering the game.

Once is an anomaly, twice us a trend. It seems as though between 6:30-7:30am Eastern time is a good time to avoid login queues.

There are players who already got to the Romulan endgame within 24 hours...

Yeah. I saw lots of people complaining that there wasn't any easy missions they could use to level quickly. I don't understand that mentality. Half the fun is playing through the levels.

Yeah, some people just can't get to the grinding part fast enough to complain about the lack of content!

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

I really wish I could say LOR has tempted me to log in again, I started in closed beta, quit at season 2 when most of the entire rest of my fleet at the time quit, came back again at the FTP head start quit again at season 6.

So is there some really epic new redeeming quality I should try the game again with LOR? I don't care about Romulans in general, or their ships.

Oh and yeah the folks who try to be first at everything after new expansions do boggle my mind, it's one thing in WOW, where they dooo put out a reasonable amount of content, but in an game that shallow. Phew.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Well, the new story content actually IS pretty epic.

Between the new missions for the Romulans, the expansion of klingon content and the new mid level adventure zone (which I haven't tried yet, but I hear is pretty awesome) for all three factions it is almost an entirely new game they added.
So, even if you don't stick with it long term it is worth playing through the new content and hey... it is free after all.

With the Cryptic MMO's there really are not any restrictions at all.
