German news page is once more "more new"

saber1973asaber1973a Member Posts: 1,218 Arc User
Ok, i thought the STO is based in US, so English news page should be first, right?
Wrong:
German page is once more first with news!
...i suppose it maybe based on timezones (German and Europe are around 12 or so hours faster than PDT timezone), but still... :#

The news i'm looking at is new Lockbox info - "Spherbuilder Lockbox" (or something like that - my german is only so-so)

Edit:
Hmm... French page also got article about that lockbox, but i completly do NOT understand that langauge...

    I really don't understand what the big deal is with this. So you have to wait a few hours for the news to get posted here, so what?
    Dear Devs: I enjoyed the Legacy of Romulus expansion much more than the Delta Rising expansion. .

    Not big deal, just info for other players, that there are already accessible news for them...

    and maybe some light teasing for Cryptic/PWE, that other continent got the news first :)

    Edit:
    ...and there are some news, that never got out on English page in past - it was once even a news about giveaway...

    They are also awake before the US, and Cryptic works on US PST schedule. Go figure. ;) Ideally I think they should be on the East Coast given their market, but it is what it is.

    By your logic, it should actually be in Spanish first

    actually some of this looks interesting.
    Agreed, I like the ships. (I rarely pay attention to ground)

    Yep
    Dread-Carrier with Commander Tactical/Temporal Operative and Lieutenant Engineering/Command BOFFs on one ship... Wow!

    Finally a trait that buffs Photonic Shockwave (Dephic Shockwave). But its on a lockbox ship. Well, there is always something, I suppose.


    The Personal Traits look interesting. Could be decent buffs for Engineers.

    Trying to translate the abilities:

    EPS Overload
    EPS Transfer grants an additional effect that depends on the highest energy level at the time of activation:
    - Weapons -> Critical Hit Chance Buff
    - Engines -> Armor Penetration
    - Shields -> Shield Penetration
    - Aux -> Critical Damag

    In addition:
    - Nadionbypass lets Nadion Inversion increase energy weapon damage.
    - Subnculeonic Transfer grants an energy drain/buff to Subnucleonic Beam
    - Photonic Reeinfrocements grants a 4th ship to Photonic Fleet
    - A Good Day to Die enables use of Go Down Fighting at any hull level
    - Coordinated Target Systems reduce the cooldown on Fire on My Mark if the target dies while FOMM is still active.

    The ships are meh in looks, but they are Temporal Commander ships with a secondary spec access that is LtCmdr level.

    The Traits are pretty impressive. Security Escorts get grenades, and Tricorder scan gives a buff on critical hit damage traits? Yes please! Traits for Nadion Inversion buffing weapon damage directly, additional ship for Photonic Fleet, and GDF usable without requiring low health? F--- Yeah!

    Huh`?

    Both Germany and France are "before" Spain, Tomezone wise....
    Don't look silly... Don't call it the "Z-Store/Zen Store"...
    Let me put the rumors to rest: it's definitely still the C-Store (Cryptic Store) It just takes ZEN.

    yeah, the specifics of this look interesting, but people have been expecting a Sphere builder box since their ships were added to the game. :p

    Germans are just more efficient, that is why.

    Ausgezeichnet (Excellent)!
  • toivatoiva Member Posts: 3,276 Arc User
    I did say I should use the French site a couple weeks back...

    Time to finally do what I meant to do.
    TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix, Toveg, T'vritha, To Vrax: Bring in the Allegiance class.
    Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia, Ty'Vris, Tia Vex, Toi'Virth: Add Tier 6 KDF Carrier and Raider.
    Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var, Tevra, T'Vira, To'Vrak: Give us Asylums for Romulans.

    Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!

    Lol, but still what? Ok, I guess that Cryptic could spite them by making them wait for a day to make sure that we 'Mericans get our news first. Let the sun be damned. Timezones be damned. Spit on the non-English speaking players. They must grovel before us. How dare they receive anything before we do.
    When you see "TRIBBLE" in my posts, it's because I manually typed "TRIBBLE" and censored myself.

    Do you read the names of people winning grand prize lockboxes? German players make up a HUGE portion of this game's paying audience. California may be the throne from which edicts issue forth, but it's also very late in the day time zone-wise. For Europe to get it the same calendar day, it has to come 10 hours before Pacific time.
