Oh-ho, and where has the time gone my rotund and jolly friend? Is it December already? A yearly list you desire and a list you shall have, you adept distributor of wonderful goods! But, before we get down to 2009â€™s â€świshing,â€ť perhaps we could take a moment to follow-up on our previous communication?
I really â€“ truly â€“ do so appreciate the excitement and passion that your indentured elves have brought into the Star Trek Online Beta. And I certainly do not regret sending them invites. Oh, no. Certainly not! But â€“ and itâ€™s an ever-so-small but â€“ could you please politely ask them to stop griefing players every second of every day?
Weâ€™ve posted on the forums. Pleaded, really.
Weâ€™ve sent warning e-mails. Demanded, even!
Weâ€™ve utilized the awesome power of Customer Service to suspended and / or ban no less than 26 separate accounts registered with â€ś@northpoleâ€ť or â€ś@elvenworkshopâ€ť e-mail addresses! Banned! And can you believe it?
It doesnâ€™t work. They wonâ€™t stop!
Iâ€™m sure theyâ€™re proud of how much Klingon profanity they know â€“ who wouldnâ€™t be? But, do they have to be so public about it?
As for my Christmas wish... How are you with arranging careers long-term? I mean, youâ€™re immortal and youâ€™ve somehow managed to maintain a successful enterprise based in a resource-free wasteland, so you must have some considerable business talent. If you could just focus that enterprise savvy onto figuring out how I can never-ever-forever-never have to executive produce another early February game launch... Yeah, thatâ€™d be swell. Really.
Sure, itâ€™s a great time of year to launch an MMO and STO is raring to go. But itâ€™s just after Christmas and I havenâ€™t had the time to focus on all the gaming I need to do. Me! Itâ€™s almost embarrassing how far I havenâ€™tgotten in Dragon Age. Brutal Legend, Beatles Rock Band, Uncharted 2, L4D, Spirit Tracks... Theyâ€™re all just sitting there calling to me. Whispering secrets. Imploring me. Compelling me. And what can I do about it? Nothing!
