I was a big fan of Cryptic, but lately I have begun to have my doubts. Just from what I keep hearing from the corners of beta tester's mouths is that Champions isn't all that great (other than character creation). Then with the news regarding microtransactions... Cryptic might be releasing the most expensive, average-to-pay MMOs out there.

It has been enough to convince me to drop my pre-order on Champions at the least. I'll probably play it safe with Star Trek now too. And this is from someone who has pre-ordered pretty much every major North American MMO that had one available.

I guess i have a problem with a single person having a galaxy class ship or larger to themselves. Looks like EVE has a twin!!

You wonder what the best rewards are. Maybe the ships are similar to level, in that the high level group play ones are just like a capped level character. Anyone can get one to cap eventually. Maybe its crew or subsystems that are the real raid prize, and will differentiate between soloist and guild ships like raid gear does between characters.

Well this is nothing more than lazy game design on the part of cryptic.

In order to avoid the player blaming the game for their demise (wtf my busted phasers won't fire) they go for the stansdard WoW/A.N.Other MMO design and rely on Hit points (Hullpoints) as a fall back for real strategy, real combat.

Lazy game design, Safe, but lazy.

It's a standard Cardassian design. The picture is taken from behind the ship as it goes away from the camera.
