When I feel like buying something I almost always buy keys and take my chances on the different crates to see what I get. I got a temporal science vessel that way once.

Well, to save yourself some money buy keys from the exchange. It's stupidly easy to grind EC, and quickly. When I was playing a lot my biggest money makers were coming from cornering markets with a couple of people. At one time I had Jevonite and Ferasan Nepeta Leaves markets all to myself. I'd simply buy them up when they were dirt cheap, then start chipping away at the market. Building up my EC's and then controlling the market price.
Crap, I posted incorrectly and quoted the wrong places earlier.

Is F2P very limited or has a lot to do as a freebie? I didn't get far in its free open beta. I wonder if I will be able to use my old beta account or did it get wiped?
It has plenty to do. You can get ships at top tier, do all the content, and never drop a dime. Some of it is grindy but it's not bad.
Ah OK. I just don't have a lot of time to grind. I am already grinding in real life.

Thanks. Weird, your quoting failed.

Yep. And weird that the quoting failed especially since I simply hit the quote button. Oh well, shit happens. Enjoy it though if you go to play, there's enough to keep you occupied for a bit.
Yep, hopefully ST:O will be around for a while while I catch up with other stuff beside gaming.

IIRC, /. had the most comments for 9/11 too. I don't think any gaming events can beat that horrible day.

Well that sentiment is certainly true, but 9/11 is not the largest thread ever here, it was one about the Obamacare website (879 comments). This is followed by the Elite: Dangerous thread, my mom's death, 9/11, and the release of Half-Life 2, which are all the threads with over 500 comments.

When you perform a search, the list under popular threads changes to most comments all-time, rather than the past week.
Thanks Blue! How is your server handling from these top discussions?

Yes, it's improved tons since beta. There are a lot of episodic missions - i.e. missions designed to be more like actual ST episodes. It's not great, but it's good, and you could do worse as an F2P time waster.

Is F2P very limited or has a lot to do as a freebie? I didn't get far in its free open beta. I wonder if I will be able to use my old beta account or did it get wiped?

I wonder if SC will beat E:D in BN's most number of comments!

I'm not sure, but I think that the record for the longest thread was the 9/11 thread, sadly.

Also, at 814 comments, that one E:D thread has already beaten any single SC thread I know about. It helps when you ship a game.

Wow, five/5 years already but then it feels longer? Has the game improved from its open beta days (http://aqfl.net/node/7824 for my brief review and many screen (shot/capture)s)? Should I try again since I should have more free time as an unemployed worker ant?

Sigh, effing side scrollers. And I was genuinely excited for a second there thinking this would be some gloriously realized 3D Ass Creed style game where you ascend Mount Olympus and challenged the gods themselves. Now that would be effing cool.
Ubisoft, make it happen. :p

Am I the only one who gets "Error: Server not found" with these youtube links lately? "server https can not be found"

Youtube links are embedded like this

not like this
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuY3xNa8PBY

But that can't be the error here.. weird

It's not just you. This is the second one in as many days for me. Still, Blue always provides the direct link in his text, so no biggie for me.
Tell Blue! I did.

The master server lists are dead since the demise of Gamespy. These tools will direct connect you to other gamers, VPN over internet. I've used both before and found no security issues.

If no one is playing then it is up to you to create a lobby and host if I recall and hope others will join.

There are no other options to my knowledge, it's these tools or nothing.
Ah, I thought these two programs were emulating master servers or something to get players. Thanks.

You'll have to use GameRanger or Tunngle to multi, both are free.

Tunggle seems to have a greater number of users, it's been a while since I last checked. Gameranger the easier of the two to use.

So, they used different master servers?
