Agreed(with this snippet). Congrats Bioware! That is an awesome retention rate and it will only increase the longer the game is out.

Keep up the GREAT work Bioware

Heh... I played STO and still do now and then, but was terribly disappointed in some of the things they did. Ground combat was horrid with some of the severely OP mobs, and space combat sucked in PvP when you entered a WZ and had no way of knowing a klink was cloaked up.. and waiting for you.. until he rolf stomped you. Though I do admit to LOVING the PvP from the klink side (lol yes.. I rolled a klink and rofl stomped you federation scum).

I showed this to my boss and all he said was "wow." You rarely see this kind of growth for an established publicly listed company.

Hahah. I played a Federation Heavy cruiser (mix and match Sovereign Class.) That focused on shield extending and transfer. It was a lot of fun in pvp, I played with a few good friends, so we had a blast in space, ground WAS horrible though.

I'm shocked at the number of people who still are doomsaying about Tor.

Well no, I guess I really shouldn't be. Haters gonna hate, after all.

But one thing I'd like to mention that I haven't seen brought up; The whole "Well I only see x amount of people on my planet!!!!" thing.

Not sure if you haters have noticed but there are multiple instances of the planets depending on actual population. Open your map and look in the lower right hand side where it says "Republic Fleet #" and click the dropdown. Chances are you'll see multiple options. No idea what the cutoff number is...but I regularly see upwards of 200 people on the republic fleet anytime I go there.

Actually I canceled my pre order after open beta. I wanted to play on the IKS P'tahk that may explain my rage. They totally just gave up on the Klingon faction. Then when all of us left in a blind rage they said "well its good we didn't make content cause noone wants to be a klingon" Herp a derp.

Man this game launch is LIGHT YEARS ahead of some of the other launches I've seen.

The issue is Vanni, on Jung Ma, a very healthy server. I don't see those drop down menus, ever. Not even in fleet, not on any planets. Maybe I've missed it once or twice on the fleet but, still. It's just a little concerning when you go out there. The game keeps you pretty separate from other players in some ways.

Oh I agree there's lots of times you'll feel like "omg is there anyone out there?" But mostly that's due to the size of some of the planets. I mean the first few (starter-Nar Shaddaa for republic) are relatively small. BUt once you get to Tatooine and Alderaan? Holy god it's insane how huge they are and how it can make you feel like you're alone.
