    i know people have already been complaining about closed beta testers got the short end of the stick on being rewarded, but i gonna ask brandon this: brandon, u all gonna do something for the closed beta testers or we ended getting the short end of the stick?

    Getting the chance to test Romulans, the UI, and the biggest update to the game to date 3 weeks ahead of Open Beta and 1 month ahead of Holodeck for free wasn't reward enough?

    Wow. Such a sense of entitlement the likes of which I've not seen before now.

    I take testing as a chance to not only 1) yes, give feedback to Cryptic/PWE on what needs fixed but also 2) to see if something is worth the effort to use on Holodeck.

    I cherish the chance to test these things for no actual resource or cash cost. You know what that means for me on Holodeck when what I'm testing hits? If I don't like it, it saves me effort, resources, and a ton of time. If I like it, I can set a goal for myself, especially if I have nothing else to do.

    I'm surprised some people here don't see these kinds of intangible benefits to testing. Enough people did, or else Tribble wouldn't have had queues during testing weekend.

    EDIT: Those who just sit on Tribble AFK for 1 hour, you have the least room to talk. You didn't test. You don't deserve anything.

    Really? I finished tier 5 of nukara rep ages ago, I never go on nukara anymore because the boff trick doesn't work and because I don't need marks anymore, and you make us wait more than one and half a month to give this terrible thing? Thanks, Pathethicryptic.

    Please re-consider your Tribble Testing Rewards in the future.
    Season 5 was incredible, as we got some amazing rewards for that testing. The more you tested, the more rewards you got. Of course it was impossible to get the better ones without actually playing/testing (ie you couldn't just park in orbit on Tribble for 2hrs to get the rewards). Other than that, the Tribbles we get, honestly are a little underwhelming, mostly because the idea is getting stale and for reasons listed below. Getting Rare/Very Rare DOffs would be better.

    I Love the Fur Balls!
    To be clear, I love tribbles in this game. I find the whole concept of these cuddly canon critters providing a play buff to be hilarious. I think the Tribble Breeding mini-game is inspired! Whomever thought to introduce the tribble game element should win an award. :D

    The problem with Tribbles:
    Like the show from which they came, tribbles clog up the joint. They get into everything, and before you know it they've taken up every nook and cranny. That's fine for a TV story, but eventually overwhelms gameplay. The problem is that Bank/Inventory is finite. I've purchased all the extra slots I can, but am still running out. It was one thing when we used to be able to store tribbles in the Mail, but that's been taken away by the new (stealth) Mail Nerf, and the fact that all these new/special tribbles are bound.

    Post-F2P Testing Tribbles Are the Worse!
    The Radan, Fleet, Mol'Rihan, and (I'm guessing) this new Nukara tribble are bound to the Captain. This is horrible! I can no longer store my tribbles on my BOffs. I can only keep them in my Captain's devices, inventory, or bank. It makes storing food-items incredibly problematic and basically kills the Tribble Breeding mini-game. If you're going to continue to give us Tribbles, please for the Pete of sake, do not bind them in this way!

    Really? Environmental Defense?
    A final qibble about the Nukara Tribble (see what I did thar?)... You gave it the power to generate Nukara Marks, that is nice, but what's the point to giving it +10 Environmental Damage Resist? It'da been better with just a generic +1 or 2% All Damage Resist. When is Environmental Damage ever a problem? When we're on a Demon World. But we can't even access such a world unless we're in an EVA Suit. Which protects us entirely from Environmental Damage. :confused:

    Anyway, you are welcome for my time testing your product. Thanks for the Tribble.

    :rolleyes:

    I have Mol'Rihan and Nukara Tribble. When 1 of the Tribble is on 1 hour cooldown the other does not get a cooldown. So I can use one of them every 6s. Nice done. :D

    we also had to spend time durring the closed beta also and time is a resource according to some people.

    Time you decided to give not knowing the rewards. Cryptic didn't put any metaphorical gun to your head saying "test it or else." You chose to log in, check out the new stuff, and perhaps play a bit to get a feel of things.

    That's not time wasted. That's time scouting out the new stuff, getting new info, and trying to get an advantage on those who don't/can't test.

    That's worth the time.

    Buy one of the Risa food items (they're cheap) and feed it to any tribble.

    I'm forced to agree with what everyone here has to say. This wasn't just any Tribble Test weekend, this was Closed & Open beta testing for the first game expansion. We honestly did deserve better, and while I like tribbles, I hardly use them. The party poppers for each anniversary of the game are superb because they're fun! it's something that won't alter the gameplay but are immensely popular. I do think something should be done to at least give closed beta members (whom I'm not a part of) a better reward and token of gratitude.
    FWI I don't blame Cryptic for this, I blame the publisher who is dictating what they do in order to make PWE rich. While Atari was not the best publisher in the world, they at least gave Cryptic more freedom with policies. My advice: find another publisher before you lose more people. PWE, Thank you oh so much for treating us like 3rd class citizens.

    Um, just FYI:

    Under Atari:
    - Nearly a full year of little to no new development for STO.

    - Allowed the STO Dev team to shrink by not allowing Cryptic to fill vacated positions.


    Under PWE:

    - Allowed Cryptic to hire and expand the STO Dev team to 50+ people (larger than it was before even under Atari before the hiring freeze.

    - Over a year of steady content development (a new sector space zone; New Romulus Adventure Zones, etc.)

    - A new full (and Free) expansion with playable Romulans; new KDF tutorial and expanded content for KDF (took long enough and wasn't possible under Atari)

    Given the above, I'll take PWE over Atari any day of the week myself.

    (So, they gave out another Rep based Tribble as a reward. Meh. Most MMO developers don't bother rewarding anything for playing on their test servers beyond seeing the new content first/offering feedback.)

    I agree ...

    And i say : If Tribble, with her buffs, multiplied by 2 the mark we received, I say it's good rewards ... (For example : Without Tribble we give 25 Marks, WITH tribble we got 50 Marks.)

    But, this tribble is useless ... 1 more ? Why only 1 ? And this reward is for ALL ... Ok, but, all can prevent the arrival of the weekend test.

    So, stop this tribble, or add other some object usefull.

    Okay I actually like this one. I see it as useful. Plus why complain your getting something for free. That one mark an hour will add up.

    If you guys at Cryptic are going to not bother putting any effort at all in the Tribble rewards. Exactly why should we bother to test for you any more?

    This will join the other tribbles that cannot be used by my boffs, unclaimed.....

    Dissapointing.

    Not the value of the reward, but the lack of imagination that comes with it. A DOFF would have been worthwhile. How about a unique Reman miner DOFF for instance, to kickstart enthusiasm for the new holding?

    I love free stuff. Still running Nukara rep, so it might come in handy. But one question nags at me. Isn't this one of the most offensive gifts you could give a Klingon?

    To be honest the point of tribble releases isn't bug fixes. It's publicity. There was a queue to login to tribble during the test weekend and it wasn't so they could hunt for bugs it was so they could see the new shinys. Then they would go tell all their friends about the new shinys and people would be psyched for lor's release to holodeck.

    When we tested season seven, we got a tribble that gave out 1 Romulan Mark per hour.

    The reward for the Legacy of Romulus Tribble Test Weekend is now available for all players to claim in-game! Read more for additional information.


    Click here to read more.

    Sorry, but I have tried to login 5 times.
    Login, Load, Click C-Store and check "items" <--repeated via 5 times
    And there is no reward in my account. Is there another bug that is preventing the reward from even showing up?

    I did play the test weekend for Legacy of Romulus and even left feedback.
    I agree with the huge handful of other people that a tribble is a little small as a bonus special prize but whatever. Where is it?

    I am having this problem too I did many hours testing both closed and open. I left several bits of feedback both through the in game system and on the forums. yet I don't get this reward that "everybody" got? Not bashing the reward every season you test you get a tribble although the doff for tholian invasion was a nice extra. I am fine with the reward it is what I knew it would be anyway. I would just like to be able to get it.
