I love the game. I went lifetime on it.

For those not liking the idea of a subscription fee...well welcome the the world of MMO's Thats the way MMO's work. But with that you get continuous updates unlike a game you buy with no sub and what you get in the box is all you ever get also on those games that have no sub and are multi player are usually max 8 people at a time or are hugely hacked.

all that aside, like I said, I am really enjoying it. The missions get more involved, the fleet actions start to require more group tactics.

I enjoy it.

Look for me in game tregare@blackrowan

I already canceled my sub. I'm gonna do the first "free" month and maybe come back later in the year.

Actually, a lot of games, whether MMO's, FPS's, RTS's, sports, hunting, on consoles and PC's get a lot of DLC. And that's no BS.

I am enjoying it too. While I agree with Jla that it is somewhat repetitive, building up to your next ship so you can stomp the pogees out of some Klingons and other worthless scum is quite fun.

I just got promoted to Lt.Cdr, and got my refit Connie (and I left her just as she is physically, although I changed up the hull paint a bit). Outfitted her with some pretty powerful weapons, impulse deck, and some useful consoles...and named it the U.S.S. Alex De Large, NCC-655321.

I just can't get into it. It feels like a chore to play it for me. It's a shame because I've never played an MMO that got old so fast, and I've given the game several chances.

Really? That's the way MMO's work? Then perhaps you could explain to me how games like Guild Wars, Runescape and Dungeons and Dragons Online are still flourishing without these fees? (DnD even started subscription and then went free to play)

Clearly Criptyc had a choice of business model when they decided to launch STO, they chose the subscription model, but with that comes the burden of constantly having to prove that what people are paying for is worth it, and defending their model at every turn. From the majority of reviews it seems that at this point they have not earned their 15 a month. I hope this changes in the next few years…. and the game improves enough for it to be worthwhile.

Sorry about the odd quote structure, it wouldn't let me quote you for some reason.
