WOW... I love it.

Let me qualify that by saying I am a Star Trek fanboy.

Anyway, I love the game, especially space combat, but also the ground stuff. I have never really got into an MMO before and I assume most of this stuff is basic, but it seems to be fairly smooth and polished. Honestly it controls and plays just like Dragon Age, though you have to initialize basic attacks as well as special ones.

It's nice that you have the space stuff, then beam down... it really feels like a Star Trek mission. It's all combat focused which hardcore trekkers probably won't like, but as a single focused aspect of trek it is done well.

I am overjoyed, it has some bugs (I got kicked at the end, then got the map is full thing again) but I love the game.

Yay.

(Still wish it was singleplayer).

How is the server performance now? I'll give it another shot so long as it's not constantly rubber banding.

From what I have been reading its nothing more then instances... like DDO... which I so disliked. I understand instances for certain quests but not everything... just removes the whole large world feel.

I downloaded this game so my son could try it. As soon as I found out the bulk of the game play was in your ship, I lost interest in this. I'll tool around with the beta for a bit but that's as far as I'll go with this game.

I'm waiting for Star Wars like everyone else but I am really excited about Global Agenda.

If anyone has played the beta for Global Agenda I would like to know your thoughts on this game. PM me of course.

I'm fairly interested in Global Agenda too, I just heard about it the other day but the videos look pretty interesting. Still SW:OR is top of my list for MMO stuff...hope it is good!

I am also a big ST fanboy, and I am really enjoying this MMO. After LOTRO, this seems like another MMO I will like. But just like LOTRO i will quit when it goes retail!!!

It was better last night, they released a patch. I didn't play for long though, I was doing a Doctor Who marathon. I plan to play a lot more tonight after my girl goes to bed.

I would love to tell you how my gaming session went tonight but the servers were down for 3-4 hours when I was trying to play and then when I eventually got on it kicked me 10 minutes later.

****ing MMOs... seriously.

Finally got some more time with it... still like it, I went on a mission to kill some Orions and save a dying ship, played well pretty much just like a Dragon Age mission.

Bugs are minor but annoying... the most annoying thing is people with insane costumes and appearance, kind of ruins immersion.
