Tales from Cryptic Forums: A challenge to Stoked,Priority one, Podcast UCG and RSA
Elliot From Priority One sent this to me in the mail today. It’s a call out from forum member and long time STO player STARTRUCK asking for the podcasts to rally together and send a strong voice to Cryptic over the mess that is the conversion of Free to Play.
“Hey guys, I have listened to all your respective podcasts for as long as you’ve all been making them, and I’ve enjoyed them very much.
Lately the tone has been pretty much a reflection of the forums and mood of the players in general, and lets face it..for those of us that have been here for a while things are looking grim.
I think the last episode of STOked and Podcast UCG however had some good ideas in them, and hey, finally after a long battle of posts and debates the guys on STOked talked about something many people in the feedback forums have been working at..auto refinment for subscribers.
I was happy to see that shortly afterwords we got a post stating that they decided that was a good idea and it went ahead.
Lets not beat around the bush here…anyone remotely interested in STO listens to your podcasts on a regular basis, and we also know developers do as well.
My challenge to you all is to help the people that are trying to highlight realistic suggestions in the feedback forums so that those ideas that might make free to play less painful, and better for the game as a whole get heard.
There is a lot of posts in there, and good ideas are getting buried under mountains of this sucks, and I’m quitting.
If you guys could work together and get the best ideas out of that mess and onto the shows, maybe more people would be inclined to add their support and we can get things like crafting sorted out.
Unless the long term players get one very loud voice together and soon, the window of opportunity is going to slip by and we’re all going to be hosed. We need your help fellas, we really do, there is no more direct method than the medium you use.
We all need to stop arguing about what is, and start talking about what needs to be.”
Here at Holosuite, we fully support this and any movement that calls for a better game. Though Tribbles in Ecstasy was not mentioned, they stand ready to assist as possible. So keep this topic alive by submitting good ideas and we will do our best to make your voices heard.
