VOTE for STO - Best F2P MMO 2017 - Daily vote

There are 12 days left, you can vote once a day, let's get STO a bit higher, maybe even into the lead although it looks like Never Winter will win this easily, currently STO only has a paltry 49 votes.

    Done as requested. However it's really the only one of few f2p MMO's I've ever played.

    Done. It's really the only MMO that I play and I do enjoy it despite all it's hiccups.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    Because it's not better... and there is no Star Trek in Neverwinter.

    I have voted also. STO would always get my vote. Yeah there are a few bugs, but then we can all take a look in the mirror and see that nobody is perfect in every detail.

    Umm...play both? But you basically need to spend money in NW. Their exchange is borked so you can never get any zen for free.

    the 18K i got a few weeks before black friday says otherwise...it may have taken a week after i put in the buy listing to get it, but i DID eventually get it, so people are still buying zen and converting to AD over there​​

    Like special weapons from other Star Trek games? Wondering if they can be replicated in STO even a little bit? Check this out: https://forum.arcgames.com/startrekonline/discussion/1262277/a-mostly-comprehensive-guide-to-star-trek-videogame-special-weapons-and-their-sto-equivalents

    90 votes, amazed it's so low.

    I'm not...the sto game engine is ancient and it shows. It's also one of the buggiest mmo's I have ever played. I can't imagine sto as the best free mmo of the year. Granted I haven't played many that are free.

    In terms of being f2p it technically is too low. ;)

    STO is the only mmo I play, f2p or otherwise. I enjoy it any time I can get on it and have had actually very few problems with it when I am on it.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Voted. For the best MMO of 2017.

    Not saying which one.

    There's my vote for STO, even with all its problems and declining player base, it's the only one I play.

    Although if Planetside2 was on the list (it's F2P MMO-FPS) it would have my vote instead since it too needs support and recognition, while STO can ride along with its dedicated IP fans.

    Well the 'poll' is obviously skewed towards which playerbase actually knows about it and then actively participates.

    I mean seriously, look at the numbers for EVE and World of Tanks. 20-ish votes? Both of these games have huge playerbases - and either don't know, or don't care, about the poll.

    And heck - they didn't even include Champions Online.... :(

    You have no idea how much I wish I could vote that STO is the best MMO of ANY sort... but I can't. This game has SO many issues, even after all these years, that I simply can't cast that vote.
    Once, I was simply called Mojo. Now, I'm forced into a new name, but don't be fooled, I'm the original STO Mojo!

    This game needs detailed crafting, exploration and interaction systems.

    i haven't voted and i doubt i will.

    STO is something i haven't been that interested to get back to playing beyond the winter event ship and maybe the anninversary. all the previous content is stuff i've done so many times before i don't really care for going through it many more times.

    SWTOR is collapsing in on itself because the devs there genuinely don't care for their community or the game any more, recent server merges have made things easier to see what is coming, if numbers drop again, that is the end of it.

    Champions Online hasn't changed since it first came out, despite some new content, it's still very dry as a superhero MMO. Compared to STO and Neverwinter, Champions has barely been recognised for any major upgrades since before F2P became a thing.

    Star Trek Timelines is just boring to play after the first 20 hours when you hit your daily chroniton limit which is tied to your level. the card trading game is too easy to get stuff even without paying anything for it.

    those are the four i have played this year and only those four and none of them have stood out and been "the one" to choose.

    Agreed. I've only ever played two MMOs; STO and SWTOR.

    I tried to get back into SWTOR quite recently and, to my regret, even wasted some money on it. I just CAN'T invest in that game though; the whole setup just reeks of greed. The reason I wasted spent money on it was that it's difficult not to - their laugable F2P model is abysmal and the game almost punnishes you for not subscribing. As @salvation4 stated:

    SWTOR also if you go F2P every single corner on the map is smacking your face saying "GIVE US YOUR MONEY OR SUFFER!!" The worst part is the elitist rub it in..

    It doesn't feel like that game is in a good place right now. They seem to be throwing items into their Cartel store with abandon - including at least one item that was previously only available via their loot boxes (Crossguard Lightsaber) and very frequently have new loot boxes (or resurrect old ones).
    And whilst I am only assuming here, I'd imagine they might have lost some players to Battlefront II?

    As unfortunate as it is, it looks like there won't be an SW MMO within 2 years at this rate. Shame really, STO and SWTOR were fighting for those players and they more or less came up together, but without SWTOR it might make Cryptic less interested in pushing out really good content without some competition.

    Guess we will see what comes over the next half a year for SWTOR.

    With such small votes.. it is a rather hollow award to be offered. i'm not sure if the EP and CEO of Cryptic would be delighted or insulted by it! :tongue:
