I had an account with ST:O and stopped playing because it was boring repeated missions but higher quality.
Then when I went to go back, I found out that someone else took over and had been asking people if they wanted to transfer their accounts over, I never got an email about it, and basically lost all I had.
The ST game is OK, I can see areas where it could be more polished etc. But for about the 6 hours or so I've played it I've gotten a fair more enjoyment out of it. Plus I was somewhat into Star Trek when younger, so it tugs on a partially remaining fondness I had for the franchise. I was struggling a little with moving the ship around, but past that learning curve it is fairly easy to play. I'm going down the science star ship route, on a rank II two science ship at the moment.
Yeah the one thing that put me off going back after losing everything, is the fact it would have required me to buy the Romulan pack which at the time was over £100 for the majority of the items I used to have.
The game itself is indeed fun to start with, but as I said once you hit those away missions etc and then find out when you rank up oh look you do them again for that rank, etc it does get boring very quickly. However yes there is unique missions that are introduced but it wasn't enough.
£100 for a DLC? Lol. I'll just be playing it randomly along with some other things until Jan when RE7 comes out, at which point thereon out I'll be focusing on that, including the DLCs which will eventually come for it.
