  • I suspected... no... KNEW that MSN was involved in this "improvement". You have confirmed this for me. Thx. B)
  • So... you think this person is wrong? you think only North Americans play STO? Well, 3.5 years ago they was apx 1 million STO players. At any time of day there was mega people playing as this is an international game. It is STILL an international game, but since only North Americans tolerate less that mediocre performance…
  • I see they let the trolls out from under the bridge again. Too bad I sold my crossbow. I love hunting trolls. B)
  • I should have said there is no solution offered by Cryptic: I am currently pursuing installing DX11 on my XP Pro machine and will look at getting a video card that supports it. My current GT220 only supports 10. If this works and allows me back into STO, I will be back on later today or tomorrow to verify it is a solution…
  • It sounds like you didn't know there are... well, to be generous, "people" on these forums and in STO that are just trolls. Either bullies in RL or their victims in RL that turn to internet to spread the wealth. Ignore the Trolls, OP. Recognize them for what they are: pitiful. You are in the right and correct about this…
  • There is no solution. Hope you didn't have any zen in STO. If so, you have also been burned by their lack of forewarning us. Never mind any Zen ships you have bought. And I guess, if you are a lifer, you can get back into game after you buy a new computer... if you personally tolerate these kinds of business practices. B)
  • Well, just got the official word. With no forewarning to stop any further investment in the game because I would no longer be able to play it, I have been ripped off. Thanks. I am going on FaceBook now to share my experience with everyone I know to prevent any of them from getting burned by like this. In ANY of Cryptic's…
  • Can you PLEASE remove my posting here. You folks have not responded to me and my post here has merely resulted in is me being called a "rat" in the game. Thanks a lot. I sent in a ticket about this... and yet I still see my post here. Are you folks trying to sabotage those trying to improve STO or is this just a dead…
  • Well, support is working with me to see if we can solve this issue. I am quite impressed with their rapid response. I actually feel guilty now about getting so angry over this. The lesson to be learned here is for me [us?] to not jump to conclusions so quickly without proper research. And a little patience. Lessons I know…
  • I am on an IBM clone that still uses XP Pro. I have 3,000 Zen now in a game I can't access. Zen I was planning on using for a ship in the near future once I had made my decision. I was given no forewarning about the fact that they were making such radical changes to STO which would result in my being ripped off to this…
  • Yes. It is about time we finally got a flying saucer in STO...!!!
  • Definitely food for thought. Especially the reference to www.unitedfed.net The fact that you were somehow able to research THAT info on me is both surprising and disturbing, although I realize you are just trying to make a point. Point taken. BTW... I only use the internet for STO and my Email. Exclusively. In fact, the…
  • Thanks for advice... but I never said I engaged spammer. I reported spammer to STO and somehow spammer found out and pursued interaction with me. And my Email is nothing like my user name. But I do have good blockers, AV and malware removal software. B)
  • A brilliant solution. But I also agree that it is not STO's fault. Any more than it was when I made similar mistakes [yes, more than once] in the past. B)
  • Wow...!! You are saying the same thing I have told many people since returning to STO last year. Before I had to leave STO for 20 months, I was part of elite PvP scene. The only F2P among the elite PvPers to my knowledge. And when I returned, it was to discover that virtually all of the former PvP community had left the…
  • Thanks... I will look into this RL "junk bunker" solution. B)
  • Thanks, I think... lol. If I understood you correctly, I may be an exception to what you are saying as my user name and Email address are in no way related. And are only used for STO and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. So this person can only have gotten my info from one of these 2 sources, I believe. And I do…
  • While it is easy to criticize and insult those trying to do a community service, I have worked up to 7 Days a week and up to 22.5 hours a day for 38 years. I had no time to learn about the internet as it was not in any way important to the important work I was doing. Now I am retired and have time for learning about…
  • ThIs related to STO because the ONLY way this person/group with an active STO acct was able to access my Email info would have been from TRIBBLE STO data. So it is a security warning that doing the right thing and reporting these rule [law?] breakers may have unexpected repercussions so that folks are forewarned. B)
  • Awesome, Dude!!! Congratz on an admirable and significant achievement. B)
  • Well, I never gave him mine. So how do you know he can't hack and get yours too? Your response seems... interesting. Since the only way you could check would be if you actually know him. And if you were a low life hacker friend/accomplice of his. I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt though, and assume you were…
  • Hello, You folks are quite aware of me from my almost daily tickets in this vein already. I am a former Combat Engineer whom spent several decades in Quality Control. In heavy manufacturing, building construction and Architectural Sheet Metal. I am also an awesome mechanic in RL. Additionally, I am a problem solver where…
  • Sorry... bad eyes. Imperatorpaveli
  • Cool...!! I think Omperatorpaveli answered me with what I need. Thx for assistance. See you in game, Poru. :-}
  • I don't believe the DDoS person thing. According to my internet provider, DCs are actually caused by overstressed servers kicking people out randomly when load on them becomes too intense. Load from screens full of too much graphics data, be it from OP ships like mine, folks using BFaW or the masses of pets and NPCs, etc:…
  • Well... if you actually still believe the DDoS "person" still exists, then I admire your faith...since I personally believe it is a smoke and mirrors thing as it seems to happen at the exact times ninja server work is going on. This being said, I agree with almost everything said by Groomofwierd and will take the…
  • To my knowledge, it does boost all radiation damage... but STO wiki may have a more specific answer for U.
  • Sadly, if I go, I will either give my massive resources and goods to in game friends if I don't just scrap it all: I'm not sure I want to get blamed for encouraging any one else to stay for such frustrations... since such an act would be somewhat antisocial in my opinion.
  • Well... thx to everyone for their responses... guess I will hafta give up doing STFs until they bring back the elites then...and find a new venue to help Noobs learn about PvEs on. And I agree it is very sad that they have taken out the most enjoyable and relaxing aspect of this game simply because some failures were…
