Sonic Doctor:
I stopped playing for the second time about a month ago. I do love the game, best starship/space combat I've played. It has great sound and is wonderfully flashy.

I haven't played this since it went F2P, maybe Season 3....don't know if that sounds right. Is there any content for the Klingon side yet? I got to the 30s I think, then actually ran out of things to do. A shame because I really enjoyed the character and her Bird of Prey ship. I much preferred the ground stuff to the space segments.

THat looked good but not something that would necessarily sell

Sonic Doctor:

Starke:

Captcha: lost love

Well... that about sums up my feelings on STO, thanks. :p

On the item wear and repair:

It is technically still in STO in a way. You just have to be one of those people that play hardcore style level of play, where you have to repair your ship with components and use regeneraters on your character.

But I did like not having to worry about that, I was worried enough as it was losing my favorite Duty Officers from assignment disasters.(Oh! The trials and tribulations of a Starfleet Captain.)

I'll probably come back to the game after I tire of LotRO again. I'm getting in a pattern of switching off between the two.

At the same time it's really not. The STFs are gone replaced with bite sized zergables that have been dumbed down far enough so any pug can stumble through without much difficulty, the elites are still bite sized, and filled with random one hit team wipes. The bait rewards drop a couple times a month... and the visual armor is, both captain restricted, and only unlocks with the Mk 12 versions. The new sets are kinda cool, but I've got better things to do than run all the new STFs ~200 times on elite hoping for a drop on my main, nevermind that I've got 12 alts. The only content I haven't done to death is the borg invasions and the 4800, and on the later it's because it was too little too late, I played through it once, but couldn't bring myself to bother again.

The Duty officer system was great, but it boiled down to a spreadsheet game with dice rolls. And while it does wonders for making you feel like you're the captain of a ship, it's kinda hard to mesh your 100 doffs with your Defiant Retrofit's 50 member crew.

Honestly, though, the final straw was when they decided to slap dilithum costs on top of crafting's already considerable, and grindy costs. Want an Aegis set? That'll be $5. Ugh.

Used to be, Klingons would get a unique set of content right before they hit LtCmdr (so around 8 or 9), they'd get a unique set of content right before they hit Commander (18 or 19), a unique one as they got to captain, so (28 or 29)... and that was it. The first one was a conspiracy involving the Romulans, the second was an assault on the Federation, and the third was fighting the Fek'lhri. All in all it was easily the best content in the game, which only went to show how shoddy the Federation content was as a whole. Beyond that they only thing KDF had they could do was Featured Episodes, cluster missions, and their own version of DSEs.
