    ROFL on those who said Cardassians wouldn't be coming on this expansion.

    Thanks Cryptic and job well done in this much anticipated addition.

    Cardasians will not be a part of the JHD Faction. No diff than playing a Ferengi in the Fed... you dont get any Ferengi ships by playing a Ferengi. You get the standard Fed/KDF ships as a Cardi. Just adding a new race to the option for KDF & Fed.

    i've got someone in the first 100 to get on after patching finishes...so figure about 30 seconds - it does take time to get to the character creation screen, after all

    unless they're a purchased species like caitians/ferasans or trill - then add another 30 seconds​​

    No "new" rankings when you hit level 65. Probably they did not want to inject controversy by adding a new title "Grand Admiral" or "President" of the United Federation of Planets.​​

    Well, Star Wars notwithstanding, grand admiral was historically the same grade as fleet admiral anyway, just used by different countries (e.g. German Großadmiral, through WWII).

    Would be pretty hard to have President, since that's a civilian position, while Admiral is a military one! But yeah, wouldn't make much sense to go higher than Fleet Admiral, infact, Fleet Admiral didn't make that much sense. "I am the Fleet Admiral, and so is everyone else!"
  • nimbullnimbull Member Posts: 1,552 Arc User
    Ranks are pretty much pointless now. Best they can be anymore is titles and markings on the uniform. Going down the president route would be like SWTOR's Eternal Empire route and they're dumping that in a new expansion since it wasn't doing so hot for a lot of people.

    So as far as the newly announced ships go the only one i'm really interested in is the Vanguard Dreadnought and the Vanguard Jem'hadar species. I'm going to wait to see if the Vanguard Dreadnought Cruiser has frigates like the JHDC. However I'll definitely be buying at least the Starter pack as I've been waiting a long time for the Jem'Hadar faction. Good job Cryptic
  • storulesstorules Member Posts: 3,221 Arc User
    Heck no new bug ships for a Jem Hadar factions? That's like no pointed ears for vulcans. What gives?​​

    I'm waiting for the ship and race stats to be announced. I do find it odd that the ships announced won't be exclusive to the JHD faction. Its also odd that they are giving the lobi ships away in a pack as well. I wonder if this means there won't be a whole lot of ships for the new faction.

    I am curious if lifetime subscribers will get a liberated borg Jem'Hadar and if not will they be given the vanguard? Will there be a JHD lifetime destroyer?

    Regaring the bolded part: the Jem'Hadar faction is level 60+. They don't need many ships at the start. As for the 1000-day Vet reward ship (which is NOT exclusive to LTS players), there will most likely be a Jem'Hadar Heavy Destroyer for the Jem'Hadar characters.

    Good point. I just hope they have more than one cruiser, one escort, and one raider. Unless of course they can use their allied factions ship roster which seems like its a possibility.

    I think you got your wires crossed, as, the way I read it, half of the Jem ships is not only available to Jem toons, but *must* be gotten on that toon first, until you reach lv 5 Mastery in them, so you can unlock them for your other toons.

    I kinda doubt that unless it's T5 or less kind of how Romulans are in their respective faction choices. Be odd if they changed that for Dominion/Cardassians and not setup Romulans as well.

    Dont expect a veteran Jem'hadar ship off the bat, it was a good while after LoR that the Romulans got theirs. Also I expect more ships to be added to the big pack, they always add more ships as the weeks pass until the expansion. If no more are added the fact that they are cross faction still makes it a decent deal. I hope they add TNG cardassian uniform to the store like they did TNG Romulan one. Id like to see some more ships just for variation, and add in a cardassian shuttle and a jem'hadar shuttle each to keep with the race themes. They did it for romulans after all, a cardassian shuttle and jem fighter would make sense. Hopefully with admiralty x5 crit so KDF and Romulans can claim them since feds have like 5-6 of those for missions.

    So probably best to wait and see. I don't see any reason to throw £100 on only 6x T6 ships and two obsolete T5 for that price. There are no pre-order paywall exclusives and it will probably be way cheaper to buy it in the store.​​

    Well, it's like with how the 9 packs work. It's basically 9 for the price of 4. How many £ would six individual T6 cost?

    Will they be giving us a free character/captain slot when the expansion comes out?
    Since it's going to suck if I have to delete one of my captains to make a Cardassian one.

    This has been asked multiple times already, and until they have made their decision, no-one knows! Typically they usually do give a free slot, but that is not a guarantee!
