    Something else to look out for . Some captains including myself don't see the warp out animation when leaving a sector map. Its like Scotty removed the components from our warp drive and now we are stalling out before going to warp ! lol

    Forgot to mention : Also when you use the grapple in any mission that requires it, your Captain cannot let go of the grapple. He or she ends up running around with the grapple still attached and whats worse the rope is still there as if being pulled from the floor.

    Can we PLEASE get an answer from Wakeupparamour or a DEV about the Romulan BOFF recruitment situation? It stopped being listed as a known issue 3 patch notes ago, was never listed as resolved, and seems still to be unavailable. Resolved or not, it HAD been acknowledged as an issue, and it would be nice to have the courtesy of an answer. Is it resolved, is it still an issue, is it being worked on? PLEASE TALK TO US!

    The simple courtesy of an honest and informative reply would be greatly appreciated.

    I only bought the palladin because people was telling that they have the cloak! Why take away the cloak from the temporal ships? It would be ilogicall for a ship of this time not to have! All the bugs like shooter mod are much more importand than stealling us our cloaks!! Better spend time on this then nerfing the ships down to uslees!

    If a cloak on a ship draws the line between "useless" and "worth 30 bucks" you're doing something wrong.

    Although I admit that a heads-up would have been the way to go, Cryptic. Yes, the ad text doesn't mention the cloak, but as soon as people found out you should have made a forum and reddit PSA to at least inform everyone it's a bug and it's going to be fixed. And once again it shows that an in-game news bulletin would be a thing good to have!​​

    OK, not useless, but the difference to other ships i already have isn't big now. And a cloak which doesn't need a console slot for fed was a nice thing. If I was knowing that the Cloak is only a bug, wasn't buying. Of course i could
    inform myself better and not only listing chat.......
    i agree with you: in-game news bulletin would be nice!
    After all there are greater problems in game then this cloak!

    I second this motion. Ship switching (and repairing, and everywhere where the game thinks your primary ship is a shuttle when it's not) bug too. Especially as it seems to spread.

    Even something along the lines of "it was moved back to the back burner, I'm not authorized to explain reasons" would be reassuring.

    was also positivly Surprised that the Temp Ships had Cloak, and was planing to buy the the big pack soon, well this change will make me rethink.

    If i allready bought the pack, than i would be certainly very very angry at such a change, by Mistake or NOT, if you give/sell something, and you maybe give a little bit "to much by mistake" than you "SUCK up your own Mistake" and leave it as it is, cause it was YOUR fault not the ones you sold it to, that person might have bought it just for that "little extra" so taken that extra back AFTER he bought it is outrageous in my book, another really bad move Cryptic.

    Re-added the TOS Klingon Disruptor Pistol after it was accidentally deleted.
    This will resolve the issue where some players are seeing a blank spot taken up in the inventory if this weapon was present in the inventory prior to Agents of Yesterday.

    Will this fix the issue for those of us that had the pistol in one of our weapon slots?

    Yes! you are right! Hopefully someone at Cryptic have Heart for us! And they will show that's not impossible for Cryptic to give away some more value for money.
    PS: a lot more people will by the ships with cloak than without....

    Resolved an issue where the T'Laru could not be renamed to the I.R.W. prefix.

    Ok, I get it, Romulans (Imperials) are regarded as the premium role-play 'faction' (salvaged enemy alien technology) and we have to gamble away for those prefixes and goods.

    So make it consistent: ships like the Valdore (in-game Mogai) and Scimitar were always Imperial Romulan & Reman. We paid for the in-game Valdore, Mogai Heavy Warbird Retrofit, 3x T5 Scimitars, yet we can no longer continue using I.R.W. prefixes after buying their only successors, the Morrigu, Fleet Morrigu and 3x T6 Scimitars, ships that rely on those consoles for set bonuses.

    You did not make the T5 Scimitars a lockbox or lobi ship, or the Valdore line. The leader of the friendly poor refugee republicans paraded around in a Reman-built (Imperial) weapon of planetary extinction for the longest time before reverse-engineering it into something more powerful (T6) with a more tamed appearance. At the very least, owning any T5 Scimitar or Mogai should unlock the I.R.W. prefix on their T6 counterparts.

    Then, release more Imperial ships in boxes and in the lobi store.

    If you can handle being consistent, it's either that, or unlock I.R.W. on all Romulan ships.

    It was pretty obvious to me that the AoY Fed ships shouldn't have had the cloak, anybody who denies that is just deluding themselves.
    If that had actually been part of the original design, Cryptic would have been touting it all over the place AS A SALES POINT.

    I expected the cloak to go away since the same thing happened on the Monbosh way back when. Enjoyed it while I had it but not mad to lose it.

    I also didn't know that the Vengeance had incorrect turn and speed values. I'll take more speed and turn on that thing any day haha.

    There was a moment of confusion, since discovering my Paladin had the same cloak as comes standard on Fed Intel ships could have meant they came with it and simply neglected to list it as a feature. They are specialty ships after all, carrying the design lines of the Ent J of the future where apparently Feds absorbed KDF and Roms including their cloak technology. The Kelvin Raider gets battle cloak despite being xfaction and from Federation lines, and C-Store, which is a first for Feds (T6 Defiant needs 3pc set and was only upgraded to battle cloak later). \

    Cryptic still seems to have zero problems making the T1 BoP as a skin unlock sales point for T5 & T6 BoP without ever delivering on that.

    I'm glad they don't come with cloaks of any kind, but at this point, I hardly think it matters anymore as the lines have been blurred altogether for faction uniqueness and keeping cloaks as a costly feature for Feds.

    If anybody thinks even for a moment that Cryptic would have forgotten to mention that new Fed ships have a cloak, then they haven't been paying any attention for the last six years.

    While this sentiment is frequently true in the "real" world, in the video game world where everything, including advertised specifications and features are - through the advertisement itself or the game's ToS - disclaimed to be "subject to change at the whims of the development team" - the "general understanding" is that while it takes a massive explanation and proof of "balance disruption" to change an advertised feature, unadvertised ones are considered "bugs" and therefore subject to immediate and non-negotiable removal.

    Therefore, buying anything on the strength of a bug is, IMO, fail. You buy only for what is advertised...
    Detecting big-time "anti-old-school" bias here. NX? Lobi. TOS/TMP Connie? Super-promotion-box. (aka the two hardest ways to get ships) Excelsior & all 3 TNG "big hero" ships? C-Store. Please Equalize...

    Unusual day for shard maintenance
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    I believe it's because some of the BUGS are kinda-sorta game breaking for many folks and Cryptic decided to get the fixes in-game ASAP.

    I hardly ever use a cloak anyway, and I got the Paladin for free, so this doesn't upset me at all.

    I'd rather see the shooter mode bugs fixed.
    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.
