Well adaptaion is good if it is done in a good way. 

Lotro actually pulled it off the first 2 years following the way the ring went.  Now were stuck in a time vortex.  They don't know what do and how to get there.  I feel for the guys at turbine torn between do we follow the wring or do we do the time warp and go into the dirrection of the hobbit.  You have fanboys of both pulling for turbine to ehter go to laketown and smog or go to rohan and mordoor.    So what happened instead of folllowing anything we would up with a bunch of instances to grind on a daily basis. A lot of folks are opting out, population in lotro is back to pre xpac numbers.

STO adaptation of the ip is right from the start a complete shame of what star trek should be.  Yes there is some exploring in a confined isntance.  Tons of space combat horibly done to bad they hired the guy who did pirates of the burning seas to write the code for their space combat.  They needed to get the guy who did space combat for soe.  Now that was a huge open area even though it was an isntance instead of this little confied area we got with STO.  Ground combat what can I say, its sad.

The main question is how many folks can they pull.  I see STO starting out huge, and then rapibly decreasing.  It will be a niche game the same as LOTRO. 

The only reason why these games even get big billing is the IP.  Folks want to know it its good bad or what. 

I wish those who will be in love with STO good luck, as Cryptic did not get my cash.  Turbine got my cash for teh AP pack but never gain.  Turbine and STO will forever get my no vote nowdays. I refuse to pay for games that are crud, and that they cant seam to keep a competent staff to at least give us new and great content.

All these games ever want to do is more of the same.  Here is your instance run it 100 times day and check with us later, want fries with that.


Yes we got a refund to our legendary weapons as the point calculations were wrong and you had to spend more points for stuff. I was glad for that fix.

There was a fix to a couple of the skirms,  They needed them as a handfull of folks were exploiting the system and made thousands of marks an hour, and that turned into hundreds of gold. These folks got lucky first they got a perma ban then changed to a 30 day ban meh.

All in all it was a small patch, i just hope it helps minis with the healing problems they had.

Yea what we really need is some of the bad ones to go poof.  So the rest of them will realize that people dont like to play crud.

I  would love to see SWG finally take it's last breath followed by vangaurd, and a few others that have been on life support.

I refuse to play crudy games any more and the only way I have to vote is with my walllet,  I don't care what the ip name is on it. If its total crud it needs to go. Fire the devs who just want to be so so and lets get folks who want to make a game great instead of just so so.

 I usually don't comment bad games but I have to with this one as I expected much more since I'm a star trek fan. It's worse then bad. It's shallower then shallow. It's... a waste of time to even write more about it. but I need to add one more comment:

Star Trek Online makes Star Wars galaxies look like an excellent game.


Wow I thought the game was bad buy I have to agree this made swg space coombat actually look great. I almost want to resub so I can get  back on my decimator and fly around and blow up a corvette.

Even though I am not a StarTrek fan I am finding STO VERY fun. There is no other game where you can do space and combat missions in one game, thats one of the biggest pluses for me.

Here is my review:

I strongly suggest to try this game to anyone who likse space MMOs.


I guess your to yong to remember SWG had JTL for years.  You can do both. Now we can debate how valid the game actually is now, as I have not played it in 2 years.

Its was a good read, and I see what the OP is saying, but while I'm a long time fan of the IP, the game and its design just doesn't interest me enough to fork over the cash to play it.

Maybe in its next life.....


You are correct, Sir!

Anyone who pays for crap, just encourages more crap.




 I completly agree. However how am i too know it is crap?  Do i believe the egregious amount of trolling on mmorpg???? Or the fansboys??? I dont know of a single person or sight where i can find good reviews that arent bias in 1 way or another. Also your definition of crap may differ from mine?

So tbh the only way is to get lucky and try the beta and even then with a lvl cap of 16 i cant really rely on just that. I have pre order + i got 7 beta keys which ive given to friends and family. I like the space combat end of story. Ground combat is chunky clunky and a 2 shot fest for those with good equipment. In space PVP if feds ball up its near impossible to kill them. But if klingon can pick 1 or 2 off and stop the ball they will win.  Overall the game is good in space crap on ground and needs a chunk of work. Releasing early because ATARI is retarded, they finished 1 race , while the 2nd is still being worked on and is expected to be on par 45 days after launch. So i will be lvl 45(Not 50 those bastereds) so most of the fixes and content wont apply to me. Unless I reroll( YEAH GOOD LUCK WITH THAT 3 SLOT BASTERDS).


Well, if you discount any one sight in particular, and go to several others, the general community opinion of a game, be it good or bad, tends to be correct much more often than wrong.

In the case of STO, many more people have negative feelings towards the game, based on what it has and what it does not have, at various sites. Had I not played the beta myself, it would have likely been enough to get me to hold off the initial release.

Having seen and experienced what the game is, I do not need to spend $50 to see if it is magically better the day after launch.

So, I will stick by my original opinion, that paying a company full price for a game that is "crap" only encourages them to put the same out the next time. I think we have seen this exact example here from Cryptic, going from CO to STO, only wasting the chance to use a first class IP in the process.




Yes paying for a crapy game only makes them do more crap.  I played the beta for 3 days and hated it,  my wife even came over and played it for about 2 hours.  She then went to her computer pulled up a website and i head her typing for a minute.  I asked whats up.  She said that after I got the key for open beta she had ordreed it for my birthday (not the pre order), she said she had canceled the order. 

Oh well I wish you guys who want to play the game good luck as I refuse to play another crapy star trek game.

Yes you can turn off player music,  they you would also need to turn off combat sounds as well.

The reason why is mini's do music sounds durring combat.  So you get the drums you get drum sounds, lute you get kind of lute sounds, theoboy sounds like a bass guitair, then were back to the bagpipes.  You just cant put your mini on ingnore in a group.

its a silly system,  they want to do something good let us bring in mp3's into the game. 

 Ugh, you have to turn off combat sounds to turn off the music?


No, player music, game music and combat sounds are all separate sliders.


While that is true, the musical instrument that the mini has makes sounds durring comat.  In order to turn those combat sounds off you have to slide your combat slider down.  Say you get a mini with bagpipes you get bagpipe sounds the entire fight.  So you either turn of the combat sounds to deal with the instruiment th mini has or not   the music system has its on slider.    I do have that turned way down.

I find it interesting that all the folks are returning to lotro,  Right after I got all my character slots to 65 all of them including the new ones.    I have a lifetime account to lotro, this is the first time in for me in that game to say I am retired from LOTRO. I have been playing since beta.  It is clear what lotro thinks is fun and what I think is fun are two different things.

When you get all you alts to 65, at that point there is nothing left to do, except endless armor runs and skirmage runs.   I wish all you guys luck.  As when you get to the end game theres nothing left to do except the same old 3 and 6  and 12 man runsg.


That is the one system about lotro I dearly hate.

Nothing like standing in 21st hall and having soom moron pull out a set of bagpies and start playing freebird or something else. That is enough to make your ears blead.

Now saying that and having read your article, have you actually been in lotro and heard some of the abc files played.  Some are very good,  but 90 percent of that crud you can download from flat lute is just that crud.  Most of those abc files have so many problems it is not funny.

While some might say the music system in lotro is great, I hate it.  I don even use it on my mini.

Like I said nothing like standing at the bank or ah and having somebody play a piece of crud, or attemted klingon opera.

Oh well enough said.

Well if you love a very instanced game then STO is for you.  There is very little itneraction between folks unless they auto group on zone in.

Half the patrol missions are very bugy,  about 80% of the ground missions are buggy.

I think there is going to be a lot of patching for folks when this goes live.

Some folks will really love it,  other folks will hate it.


All I got to add on this is the following.  

If the game was really Free to Play,  then how do they pay their dev staf, how to they pay the folks who keep the servers up and running, and how do they pay thier customer support staff.

Somewhere there has to be some kind of money,  nobody works for free and hardware is not fee unless its 20 years old.

Honestly think about it.  Somewhere somehow you got to make money, and if you don't your bussines goes belly up.

It went from P2P to F2P only because it sucked. Bringing more players to FREE game is not a success. Success will be keeping that game alive and improving it while it's free.

Actually - IIRC it went F2P for other reasons too?

Because Turbine thought that Atari had not promoted it correctly and Turbine thought that one of the solutions to attract players was the F2P model?

We will soon know all the details anyway... it will all become public in the court case. :-D


Oh I don't believe we will ever know what happenedt, I would bet this thing get settled out of court.

Dungeons and Dragons, as well as EVE Online, are the current gods of our F2P market, while Guild Wars is a fallen god that tried and failed.

The real demon of F2P is Entropia Universe, trying to sell Pay-To-Advance as Free-To-Play, and crowing about the several billion dollars it makes off a free game.

Now, Yes, EVE Online and DDO do have a lot of things similar about each other, and in both cases, that's what makes them work. PLEX systems, where you could earn your way to everything WITHOUT SPENDING ONE DOLLAR, work better than Entropia's system, where you can't buy a loaf of bread without checking your wallet.


When WoW goes F2P, Do you want them to go freemium, where you get told, after you get out of your opening zone, that you can't do anything since your wallet's still full? Or do you want it to be where you spend some of your money on accepting a quest, with a option of in-game or real?


What are you smoking.  Eve Online has never been F2P.  I thought wow what have I mised in the past 2 years.  I went over to my account page.  Hello 14.95 a month just like it has always been.   I think you got that messed up.  Not sure what game your talking about but Eve has never been free, if it was I would be playing it, and it was something I gave up 2 years ago, called lack of vision by the company.  

The predictied 1/6 then said there numbers were rushed by the amount of folks who did redeam keys. Im like duhhh!!  Folks have been wanting to play this forver.

I wonder how many keys did get redeamed as he did not say. 

The graphics are great for ships and for space,  however the player model graphics just dont cut it. Klingons just dont look right,  they missed something with the foreheads.

I played beta for 3 days, while the graphics are great the game is not.

Nothing Turbine can do would ever get me to go back to DDO.  I played the original game for a short while.  Then put my neck on the line for LOTRO.  Something that I have not played in the past couple of weeks.

It does look like the F2P ddo modle worked somewhat there numbers have double from what it was, and that was a game that was fixing to die.   I still wonder about the real numbers. 

You can not trust anything turbine has to say.  After the recient were handing out perma bans to folks who cheet, then changed that to 30 day ban, and in 2 cases that we know of the banned players were allowed to play on their second accounts. That give you little faith in them,  and lack of trust.

When i hear ppl say that it's a WoW clone i wonder if these chimps ever played anything else before WoW...  It's true that we see those allot, ppl seem to repeat over and over these '' Idiotic" excuses. Now seeing your article i might just refer these chimps to it so that they can see how unoriginal they are...


Thanks for the article...


Yes I played EQ and EQ2, when I say wow clone I guess I should realy state making a game that appeals to that player demographic.  Lots of folks love it, good for them. That seams to be the target gamer that most of these game apeal to nowdays.  I have said on many of a post dont try to make wow clones, I don't want to be in that demographic.

Well I been playing open beta for 2 days.  I finally gave up.

The grafics are great.  The ship design great.  Ground combat buggy at best.  Ship movement stolen from pirates of the burning see.

Things I loked open groups for patroll missions that otherwise get you killed. No waiting for a group.  That was the one benifit.

The bad was the comunity. All I can sa was regional was full of a bunch of crying folks complaining this dont work, that dont work, and other folks who been doing the beta for a while cussing at them.  The entire channel the hole time was full of the f comments twords each other,  worse than a bad day of wow barrens chat.

I think there are those who will love it, and there are those like me who wanted to love it but dont.

It's a way to rid the forums of any dissension, without Turbine having to do any of the dirty work.

This game has probably the most rabid fanboys of any MMORPG, and Turbine regularly unleashes them to stuff polls and such.  Now they've turned them against their own players.


Yes I agree with what you said this is a way to have to fanboy comunity police out the ones who have been unhappy with wear the game is going.  Once they hit the 1500 mark I am sure certain folks will be shut all the way down.
