Heat / Rep.
Planning to hold out for the stargate MMO.... if it ever comes out!
#3
The Stargate mmo has been canned, they run out of money it is now to be made a fps and hopefully any profit made to be used to make an mmo.
#4
I was also waiting for the Stargate game until it was cancelled. Such a shame as I had high hopes.

Saying that, the screenshots from this game do look rather good. Anyone know what the monthly charge will be though? I don't want to go ahead with a purchase if it's a ridiculous amount each month as you can get just as much enjoyment from a game that has free online servers.
#5
Will be around £8.99 to £10 a month.
WOW is £8.99 most other mmo's around £10 or $15
#6
I like the look of this but I am unsure as it is by Cryptic who did Champions online which had good reviews but only had servers in the USA meaning some people experienced lag problems.
Price is good especially as its £34.99 on steam for the standard version, just need to check what the service is likely to be like.

didnt know this!! was still sitting here waiting for my beta invite lol
#8
Has anyone had an email with the BETA key in yet?
#9
Best price I could find so I pre-ordered. You can get free beta keys online if you search, which after playing is why I pre-ordered in the first place.

Heat and rep added!
#10
yes got beta,from fileplanet and not a bad game seems like more of an single player even when online
#11
H+r Added
#12
I have played it quite a bit. Enjoy it - apart from fiddly flying manouvers. Not easy. The camera is frustrating when flying!
#13
No beta keys anywhere (despite being offered on at least 20 different sites).

Wouldn't mind trying it out BEFORE purchasing!

I need a replacement for WoW if you have a spare?
#21
I'd say this deal is close to worthless. Star Trek Online cannot hope to compete with WOW, it has already been garnering negative reaction, and to highlight things further, they are already selling lifetime subscriptions. Indicative that they belief the franchise will not last long.

On the other hand, a very promising MMO game is The Old Republic, which I believe will challenge WOW. Don't take my word for it, but Star Trek Online is another Auto Assault.
#22
Why do you think it's a failure if it can't take on WoW they're from literally 2 different universes and are going to appeal to different people
#23
there are hundreds of MMOs out there, all trying to compete with WoW. and failing. some really good ones, age of conan, lord of the rings, warhammer.

one thing this game has over others, is a massive fan base already.
it wont beat WoW, but it might do ok!

saying that, to the dude giving away betas, any left????
#24
played it for a couple of days, I certainly have concerns, it does not look that great, pretty simple.. the fighting is very very basic, as someone said flying your ship can be very annoying esp when getting fired on in a fight..

I was only running on my laptop so perhaps it will look a lot nicer on a better rig, fileplanet are giving away keys, just register wait a couple of days and you key will come through...

Because MMOs are build upon their community. Without a significantly sized community, these online games will not be financially viable to run. Not to mention, communities are the whole purpose of these games.

In my opinion, if they want to do something worthwhile with the Star Trek brand, release a sequel to Birth Of The Federation. My favourite strategy game ever, and it would work on consoles too with a little tweaking, as sid meier has shown.
#26
Not a good a deal as the previous Amazon 15 quid one but not bad. I'm in beta for this, space is quite good but i have trouble on the ground as my PC is not up to spec. Good news there though, my PC shouldn't be able to run it so anyone holding off should manage. Single core, 1.7 amd, equivilent to a 7800 gfx card and 2 gig RAM.

It's a sci fi mmo which is great and they are unlocking a lot of areas this week like DS9.

Oh and I think there are plenty of keys out there if you have a hunt around. Try mmorpg.com and their forums for directions.
#27
Dan_GTA, dicksteel18 and Pantaloonie all got codes :)

Ill try my best to send the rest of you who requested one (before this post!) a key, too.
#28
It's a good deal if you're concerend about getting into BETA and the headstart, but the bonus pet I can't see being of much use to be honest. You can already kit your crew out well enough on the ground and it won't be useful in space, it will simply be a cosmetic pet.

Saying that, alot of places seem to have sold out at this price.

Science ships are all kinds of awesome as well, a tad overpowered if you ask me.
#29
have been playing this for good few days now, quite entertaining. Very different to WoW and I think if they iron out the bugs it could be very good indeed.
#30
Umming and arrrring whether to get this or not. Good price for sure!
Spend most of my time on MW" so doubt id make most of this :(
Looks like fun tho
H+R
#31
I have the beta , i know its a beta but so far i wont be buying it.

Ground battles are jerky with corrupted graphics ie constant ship instead of the character spawning
Crew randomly bounce around in a battle instead of concentrating fire.
Space battles are ridiculously pathetic , hard to control and trying to evade doesnt work at all.

Fair few other bugs that need ironing out when thats done the result should have been the beta not what theyve released.

As you say, it is Beta and they are ironing out the bugs. The ship avatar problem, while funny seemed to be sorted yesterday. I have lag issues on the ground, bad ones but a friend sorted it by updating his gfx card drivers, been a lot of updates for most lately. When it goes live there should be more stability, we're also stress testing servers and there should be more once it goes live. Space is fun for me, getting my head around the buffs for it is a thing though, and the loot items help. It's quite graceful in a group. My name is digriz@_digriz_ if you ever want to join a decent group. We formed our fleet last night, LRDP, wave any of us down if you need a hand or anything, mature bunch and not a bunch of kids.

Defragging your PC will help too btw, other wise the program is spread out a bit. MMO experience has shown it's best to do it every major update, chapters etc.
#33
Any spare BETA codes I really want to try this before I commit.
#34
Played this at PAX and was very under-whelmed so I will be avoiding - however its a good price so should be warmed up for those who will buy regardless
#35
Im all for scifi games especially mmo's and have generally played every major mmo on release and beta.

This game is a total waste of money after the novelty factor wears off from the first few days grind, To me it does not capture Star Trek as you think of it at all rather just fly a ship around and mash buttons till something dies..It just does not draw you in.

Roll on SWTOR..I have big hopes for Bioware providing a great plot line
#36
Been playing for a week now and surprised how good it is. dont see the point of the tribble as these are easy to get. i have 9 in my bank and 3 in inventory. cant give the things away and dont want to ditch them. a tribble is for life not just christmas
#37
I have been playing the beta for a week so far. The game does look promising. Found the space fights interesting. I really like the huge amount of customisation that the game, from characters to ships and personell.

With regards to graphics, I've been quite happy with them so far. Running game at 1600x1050 atm and game runs perfect for me. The controls can be a bit of a pain at first, but I think this is because the starter ships are so bad that it hampers you alot.
#38
I dont normally play games so thought i would give it a go seeeing as i got a free code to try it.

I got bored after 3 days , have not been on since , trying to fly the ship is annoying in battle , some of the missions are broke...and sometimes i just couldnt get into the game as the server was full.


Im no fan of startrek so maybe hence why i dont get into it as much as some of the geeky ones which seem to play
#39
If anyone does have a spare beta key I'd love one :)
#40
How much is the monthly sub going to be on this ? I am a right trekie but have really moved awy from pc gaming.
