    it's a game for larpers.
    forget the mechanics, they're mostly garbage. craptic has been able to ruin space battles too, which in beta were slightly different and more varied. all you look for into this game is to satiate your larping hunger: you can create from scratch not only your captain but his officers too, their skills, their equipment, their physical appearances, their dresses, and you can write a biography as long as you want for each of them. you suffer the grind not because the game is fun or you enjoy the loot rewards, you do it because you want to put together the crew you've always dreamt of. once you do it the game has nothing more to offer, but you could easily get bored before that.

    It is also great fun to name your ships "Pleasure Drone" and "Dairy Fairy".

    I like how this is an OR now. Turns out, though, that big fleets have all fallen on their faces over this new holding. They aren't able to match us, and by us, I mean me. WINNING!

    Gameplay is terrible. Stay the fuck away unless you hate fun and wish to instead spend your time playing the game by subverting it.

    even after years, i still don't get it. if norfleet is joking around, he's a pretty fun fella, if he's serious, he's got humongous issues.
    but after all this is the codex, my bet goes on the latter.

    Well, let's say it's a very very small or and it's really only there for people who are willing to get scammed by Jupiter Force membership fees or something.

    I don't think Jupiter Force is still a thing.

    Great, they turned on their fucking pre-patch and since they cannot get into data compression and at some point decided to move their servers to some shithole or managed to fuck up connections so hard the transfer rate is like I am back in 1979 with a phone line modem.

    Well I just remembered you telling like three years ago about them charging hefty price for membership or shop access back before you first single-handedly sabotaged the entire shop access racket business when you related the tale of how you single-handedly sabotaged the shop access racket.

    Nay, that was Nerds of Prey that created a channel for public service that was invites for fleet maps so people could use the stores, they also allowed people to join and get Fleet ships due to how that shop works, Norfleet is part of NOP channel and by extent our fleet but even they are showing how the game is dying as the channel isnt very active anymore, maybe they all gone to Discord like all degenerates these days but I suspect its more people arent that invested in STO anymore, the last "balance" seem to have killed off a lot of the population that still actively played.

    Also looking at names that appearing on the news blogs it seems Cryptic isnt holding much staff, the utter echelons are still there but the rest seen to be very ... fluid.

    I think you may have a really distorted memory of that history. Because you're Vaarna and rarely ever appear. You've pretty much remembered every single part of that story wrong. FAKE NEWS!

    Well, it did happen years ago, so me remembering it wrong is not that unusual.
