Star Trek: Age of Re-skinned TFs...

qqqqiiqqqqii Member Posts: 401 Arc User
First we got Peril Over Pahvo, a re-skinned version of Dranuur Gauntlet (though it was arguably less irritating than the original). Next, we're getting Riposte, which sounds suspiciously like Gateway To Gre'thor. Is boring people away from the game REALLY your aim, here? Doing the same TFs ad nauseum was already a problem, here. Compounding it like this is not an improvement.

    @ambassadorkael#6946 already confirmed that this upcoming TFO is not a reskin, and that any future reskin TFOs would be clearly marked.

    Brand new. I'll clearly mark reimaginings from now on.

    He also confirmed
    There are currently no plans for further reimagined TFOs. But if there ever is, I'll tell you in advance. :)

    You were not the the only one who thought that but according to ambassadorkael it really is a brand new TFO and not a reskin.

    We'll see soon enough, obviously. Cryptic's track record does not inspire confidence.

    The track record shows the opposite of what you suggest.

    We'll have to wait and see but I do think it has been quite a long time since we've seen a good queue added to the game. Other than Defense of Starbase One, that is a really fun one.

    Yup, when I saw 'defend troop transports' my first thought was Grethor reskin. But he says its new. I would ask what percentage of newness?

    The mission flow as described does sound extremely similar. It may not be completely identical (klingorcs not having iconian gateways it couldn't realistically be identical even if they wanted to), but I'm not convinced its all new just yet either. We'll see when it's released.

    I personally liked as a ground queue Pahvo Dissension, and for space, Battle of the Binary Stars.

    It is likely not being a reskinned mission of Gateway to Grethor, since the Klingons don't really have anything that reminds me of Iconian Radiation Gateways. (Ships appearing out of nowhere is just cloak or warp, you don't need gateways for that).
    Unless there are suspicious "Ion Storm" patches that apppear in the flight path of the ships and you need to counter them. (With 23rd century tech?)

    However, if it's a "historical mission", it will be a reskinning TFO, e.g. you'll get a Age of Discovery ship skin applied and don't get to see your own space barbie.

    Given that the OP's re-skin assumption is false... /Thread
