To STO players of the UK

Not sure if many of you have been following the news lately but there maybe a possibility that the UK will suffer from power cuts this winter. So if I were you I'd start stocking up on lobi and use it to purchase this year's winter ship so you won't miss out. Really hope it doesn't happen but the way things are going right now it might

    Don't believe the hyperbole of the media. We're good for this winter, just like we were last year, and every year for the last 40.

    You don't buy out events with lobi. It is zen.

    Might I sugges buying UPS'es?
    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.

    I'd seriously ignore what the news is putting out. They directly caused the recent petrol shortage, scaring folk into panic buying, not the government or 'lack of drivers'. It's their inability to accept Brexit that's driving all these 'shortage of' reports, that are in fact a global issue resulted from the pandemic. Don't panic buy...simple. But enough of politics.

    There will be zero blackouts in the UK.

    You buy out seasonal events such as winter or summer with lobi, not zen. This is because under the old system you used lobi to obtain the currency daily missions rewarded towards the reputation project for said ships.

    From ESD to general zone chat its always been obvious that STO had & has a problem with those more susceptible to conspiracy, nonsense & fanaticism but this is brilliant.
    Imagine the levels of overconsumption of gibberish that must have been devoured to feel the need to post this.

    No power cuts due in the UK & methinks that there may have been a misunderstanding between the rise in gas prices due to transportation (or lack of it) and the knock on effect on manufacturing.
    If its due to the perceived threat of France cutting a supply line well thats about as likely to happen as the imminent cod war thats been about to explode for the last 40 years.

    Utter utter nonsense, stop the gleeful panic spreading this aint 4chan/pol

    That will help in the event power to your particular location becomes unsteady. If your entire region loses power, however, there won't be any internet connection that can carry STO, so...

    Guys I can already see this is going to become a powder keg if it goes further. Only thing I can advise you guys to do is take whatever precautions you think are necessary. Worry about having essentials and otherwise before you worry about this game. If it gets severe enough for a large amount of people, you can try to ask Cryptic to do something, but we'll worry about that if/when that time comes. /closed
