    Ty for telling about the fix Brandon. I am glad to see we are going to get that fixed. Also, I have seen some other things that need to be fixed... such as KDF being able to loot other players drops from the mission they do to steal from feds... on ALL joint maps. I have witnessed this picking up my mail at ANY place that has a KDF on it. It is sad that it has to be said, but it does. Some players are stealing the recipes as we go to the exchange to look up components that can't be replicated and reselling them for higher prices and making it nearly game breaking on some. Also, the Jumja rewards are broken. i get no fudge and no winter items yet it completes. Ty for letting me post it, I already sent a ticket I just wanted to post it here to see if any others have seen it too.

    i hate to tell you this.. but Kirk did learn that cheating didn't win when Spock died. See, in the reality of things... Kirk had Q show up for his mischief and got introduced to the Borg as a reason to get around the "no win death" thing.. since he cheated, Q thought it would be fun to see if he could actually get out alive.. all of THIS was how the Borg was introduced,as well as Q IN CANON TREK. So, I am telling you that the Kirk defense doesn't work.

    ALSO, this is in Cryptic's defense... to say they make a broken game to see if you can break it better is simply bad business. Number one, the game needs to be played EQUALLY to please the masses in the Massively part of the MMO unless you didn't know that means more than one person is pleased. For the fact that you can sit and defend it and say you use it means you violate the very contract THEY have you sign when you join.. if you don't remember, look up the Terms of Service under "USER BEHAVIOR AND CONDUCT". This will help clear up the "hacking is ok" as they go to jail.So, in essence, Cryptic doesn't like exploits because they cause loss of money in THEIR paycheck and pocket so it IS NOT in their best interest to keep it.

    Thank you for letting me vent an irritation. If you come to a game to break it... hack it or exploit it... you don't learn skill. You learned how to give yourself a lazy way to win. it takes true grit to not hack or cheat and still win. ANYONE can sit and flash spam a key.... that doesn't make you a winner. A winner is someone who challenges themselves to learn something new.

    The race has another issue next to the cliff jumping and the last place marks.

    Its pay to win.

    Now, how do you assure that you pay to win every time? Its simple, roll a Caitian character.
    Their enhanced jumping skills allow them to skip any obstacle.

    Its not fun to race against Caitians. I'm trying to win for the fun of it and to get as many tags to support my fleet with Epohhs. Then a Caitian pops up and bam, no chance of getting first place.

    Don't get me wrong, I've had a couple of 1sts against random players. Never against Caitians.

    I'm kinda disappointed that their jumping skills aren't temporary disabled when the Q flash appears during the Join the Race stage. You know, like metamorphoses disappear during that flash.

    I have 0 chances to grab 1st place flag with my 300 ping if someone follow close to me. If I couldn't grab 1st place flag then I get 2-3 tags only.

    Why is this all discussed in last years thread? Who necroed it? The issue with the cliff jumping was solved last year.

    The finish mechanic with the flags is meh. A close finish becomes a lottery. Today I got disqualified. I was second but hit the wrong button so I did not interact wit any flag. Then I got a message that I had left the track and was disqualified. Where are my two eppho tags?

    Cats have an advantage because they are better jumpers, but if you run the perfect line, you only have to jump once. I have beaten cats with non-cat characters. Hopping is a different matter. I am not good in hopping, I sprint and slide for turning. A good hopper beats me, but I do not see it as against the rules. Using the jump mechanic in your advantage, what is wrong with that, rolling is also ok. Everybody can do that, but you have to do it in the right way.

    That is an unfortunate truth, everytime you see a Caitian or Ferasan, its a guaranteed loss. If you got the time, you have to switch to another instance.


    This is partly why I wanted Cryptic to do something about bunny hoppers, because them hopping over obstacles and corners is just wrong. After all it supposed to be a foot race, not a kangaroo contest.

    The only thing that bothers me about the race is the flag mechanic. If you are neck and neck with someone for first you will either get the 1st place flag or probably lose all places and settle for 2 tags.

    What is so hard about making a finish line instead?

    You now what irritates me? Capturing flags at the end.

    That's nothing compared to necromancers digging up year-old threads to reply to...necromancer. :mad:

    I play a Caitian and I often have people just blow by me lol, and yes, I've run the race countless times.
