    FYI, the new console in feature episode Home has +15% rear 90 degree arc damage bonus.

    Fore Weapons: 3
    Aft Weapons: 5

    I like it already :)

    Console info has been changed to say they they also get this dread oddity so it would be nice to know if cryptic are shafting folk out of an account ship unlock yet again or if they're going to do the decent thing and double up on the token grind options.

    Locking a freebie ship behind a gamble box as the only way of obtaining the thing is a really bad decision. Surely the lukari never being a proper freebie unlock for consoles should have been the only one to have that nonsense.

    I'm wondering about that weapon layout myself!

    Fore Weapons: 3
    Aft Weapons: 5

    3 forward and 5 aft? REALLY?
    Would be neat to try out...especially if ya got mobs chasing you. :)
    I remember a Shield that had most of the protection on the rear arc. If this layout is for reals it might synergize very well with that set.
    I've always wanted a 3/5 ship. Mainly because I've never had one in the game.

    Knock it off. Especially the asinine gamblebox bs. Not one thing in this game fits the legal definition of gambling.
    There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

    One man's theology is another man's belly laugh.

    You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.

    Don't ever become a pessimist... a pessimist is correct oftener than an optimist, but an optimist has more fun, and neither can stop the march of events.

    Knock it off why exactly?

    This will be the second freebie ship that console users won't be getting access to. Unless they are going to do the decent thing and actually give folk a chance to earn it before burying it under the infinitesimally small chance rng box but simply neglected to tell anyone.

    If I see stuff that's bad (or plain stupid) I will point it out, such as the flash sales not being 24 hours (which has since been adopted) or the steady flow of badly edited blogposts containing wrong information, wonky spelling and generally lazy copy pasting.

    I doubt that will be possible, they don't want duty uniforms to include hats.

    So as a newer player I only need this ship for admirality if I lack the other ships in the "set"?

    Now that we are getting Baseball Caps, we could do with those Enterprise Era Caps added as well.

    It would probably just be put in the Dilitium Store for the paltry sum of 1,000,000 Dilitium. :)

    Good on you, sir. There is no excuse for either; both shortcomings, those responsible should be aware, not only reflect poorly upon the writers, but the institution as a whole... what rationale, I wonder, can be used to defend not doing something as simple as spellchecking and proofreading a blog post? And while it can be debated whether the fact of a '24-hour sale' not actually lasting 24 hours might constitute false advertising, it would be prudent to assume it does... quite aside from potential legal issues, this comes back to perceptions and their effects (not 'optics'; I for one find the misuse of that word as a synonym for 'appearances' annoying).

    If you have a look around the second level of the new DS9 promenade you can see all the teams Cryptic created for the league. They could only make so many uniforms for the summer event (2 canon, 2 non-canon strikes a nice parity.)

    Belgium would disagree with you as they found that all real money lootboxes are gambling. You seem to be still using the Netherlands ruling which only targets games like CS:GO where you can "cash out." According to Belgium, STO does have gambling so the person you're telling off is actually correct. Also you can't really tell anyone to do anything since you aren't a mod anymore. Judging by how you post now that's probably a good thing.
  • echattyechatty Member Posts: 4,328 Arc User
    The STO servers aren't based in Belgium, they're based in the USA.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    I hate to be a downer but this summer event is probably going to be my worst as nothing involved so far interests me, I really miss the night and day cycle and I want a T6 Risian Corvette but both are probably never going to happen.

    No one is going to make you go to Risa. If nothing interests you, then don't do it.

    I never was a mod. Your smoking something. The decision by the Belgian authorities listed the criteria they judged the games by, STO did not meet them. Your opinion of how I post is irrelevant and will be ignored.

    Where's my baseball bat ground weapon? I NEED to crack some skulls with good old ash.

    Too GTA for my tastes.

    I think they planned on the three Vorgon ships for the Summer Event back during the development of Agents of Yesterday. Having seen seen this ship during a recent return to the AoY missions, I was hoping they'd make it available this year.

    Someone should tell quinto that when a hat has a bigger screen persona than you do it's time to find a new career.

    I was looking forward to the ship this year when I thought it was going to be a science ship which I could give to my tetryon using sci, I was disappointed when I found out it was going to be a dreadnought with basic cruiser stats minus the weapon setup, they didn't even give it a different console slot setup from the carrier which I think was lazy. I think the console slot setup should've at least been 4/3/4 for a dreadnought.

    How about a baseball weapon? Ranged physical damage, 100% shield pen.

    I think some of you are trying to turn this game into The Warriors.
