The direction of STO?

Im not trying to be melodramatic. But where exactly is the game I purchased a LTS for heading?
I read that "a guy" saw in some thread that "some other guy" heard that "some cryptic guy" said "something".

Now Blizzard has BlizzCon - its huge and glitzy and thousands go. Wow and Diablo and SC all makes bank to enable that and STO is not quite that big so I don't need something like that.

But seriously - the occasional dev panel would go down well. Maybe an ama on reddit. Who knows.

Do I get my hopes up about this Account is the Player stuff? Is there any actual progress? An appetite for other features that would make the game more enticing to new players?

    Cryptic holds a weekly livestream on twitch with open fan Q&A for guest devs. The recent interview with executive producer Andre included a rich overview of where the game's headed.

    Working in Customer Services is a lot like a Michael Bay or J J Abrams film. The story is all over the place, its contradicts its own continuity, it can be hours of mindless entertainment or boring subplot, with lots of noise, explosions and action, and is something you don't fancy viewing for a 2nd time 🤣🙉🤭

    Cryptic go to many big events as well as doing a weekly livestream to peddle their goods already.
    "You don't want to patrol!? You don't want to escort!? You don't want to defend the Federation's Starbases!? Then why are you flying my Starships!? If you were a Klingon you'd be killed on the spot, but lucky for you.....you WERE in Starfleet. Let's see how New Zealand Penal Colony suits you." Adm A. Necheyev.

    Apparently I am showing my age by not being all up in the Twitch.

    I don't Twitch. It's on Facebook as well, as well as Youtube.

    ALso Cryptic isn't as big as Blizzard, so they can't do those brand convention sized things like BlizzCon.

    They also posted that roadmap to the NEWS page and linked to it in GNN for those of us who aren't twitchy or streamy or booky or tweety.

    They also go to ST:LV each year and hold a panel there. So...not sure where you get this idea that they don't do anything...but yeah they do.
