Re: Star Trek: Online

If you actually bothered to read my posts, you'd see that I did try it out again and I don't hate it. It's a very adequate, average MMO. I don't think it's worth $15 a month. You run that through your crazy filter and somehow interpret that statement as "it's a terrible game and I'm a horrible troll who hates it!" Calm down, son. We just disagree about a video game.

you are the one who keeps coming in here trying to talk people out of the game and saying that 15 bucks is "expensive" and that it's not going to be around for long. Even though practically no MMO's of any importance have ever gone under. Even Galaxies and Everquest 1 are still around.

Re: Star Trek: Online

I never said $15/month is expensive. I said STO wasn't worth $15/month. I think STO will be around for a while yet, just not as a standard subscription model.

Let me try again: That is what I think and I'm expressing my opinion to people that they shouldn't drop $240 or $300 on a game that, even if you consider it worth $15/month, most people won't play for long enough to get their money's worth. I'm not even saying anything about STO in particular here - I'm saying most MMO players don't stick with ANY MMO that long. You disagree. What more needs to be said?

You also said that STO was not likely to be around long......... a completely ludicrous statement.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Actually, I never said that. I said it wouldn't be around forever. Reading is fundamental.

Right.. then why even bring up "the servers won't be up forever?" Your clear implication was that it wouldn't be around long enough to make up for the cost of buying the life time.

No, that wasn't my implication, that was your erroneous inference. I'd guess the servers will be up for 10-ish years. My only implication was that 99% of the people who play the game will not play for 16-20 months of that time to make the cost of the lifetime subscription worth it.

And you have some kind of evidence to back this up? Or is it just another wild guess of yours?

Dude, seriously - calm down. Your nerd rage is showing. Most people don't play MMOs for 2 years. It's not a guess. There's too many other outlets nowdays including other MMOs that distract people. Sure, there are the hard core types. I have no doubt you'll play this game until the day they shut down the servers, but that's atypical.

Your the one barging into a thread for people who like the game and being nothing but negative.

You call it negative, I call it realistic.

Also, remember that The Old Republic comes out sometime this year or early next year. I'd probably wager that's about the time STO goes free to play.
I'll take that bet. How much? Twenty dollars US?

Re: Star Trek: Online

That could be fun, but we'd have to set up parameters for the bet and figure a way to pay out that doesn't include personal information. PM me if you're serious about this.

Well I think Bishop is right on the money, I wouldn't recommend anyone plunking down any serious cash for this game.

I bet Old Republic gets pushed back to Q1/Q2 of 2012.
