No away team or away team missing on Dyson sphere ground

No away team or away team missing on Dyson sphere ground. I even beamed up and back down but the away team is still missing despite choosing them after updating to age of discovery today.

    Yep. I can definitely confirm this bug.

    It took around 1 hour and 15 minutes to take full control of the Voth BZ. Only 6 players including myself was in the single instance at about 6:45pm EST. Players came and went so the number of players fluctuated between 7 to 11 players most of the time. As always, even when every player is needed to take control of the Voth BZ now especially without Boffs, there were still a few AFKers / V-Rex Campers doing nothing. At the time the V-Rex Boss Battle started there were 14 of us which was at about 8pm EST.

    The Omega Generator Points (the area with the monorail) was definitely the most difficult to do by yourself without any Boffs since many times I was swarmed by at least 6 Voth Medics / Spec Ops and numerous Voth Specialists (easier to kill). A few times I counted as many 10 Voth Medics / Spec Ops shooting at me. So yeah, pretty difficult to take control of this area all by myself.

    Please submit a in game bug report or this issue will not get fixed at all.

    Same here, why does Dyson sphere ground ALWAYS get borked when they do an expansion. It makes no sense at all...
  • narasil2narasil2 Member Posts: 129 Arc User
    checked after patch still an issue.

    Hello everyone! Is the UI box that says "Request Reinforcements" below your characters health bar?

    Nope. Kobali Prime has the same issue btw.

    It was for me, but clicking it didn't bring my BOFFs back.

    Hello again everyone, Could you all go to Nimbus and let me know if the same issue occurs there? I am doing some internal testing myself to verify which large ground maps are having this issue.
  • lopequillopequil Member Posts: 1,213 Arc User
    BOFFs appear on New Romulus and Nimbus.

    @lopequil , Thanks for the update. I have a bug into the correct team for them to check out and fix the issue.
  • Hello again everyone, Could you all go to Nimbus and let me know if the same issue occurs there? I am doing some internal testing myself to verify which large ground maps are having this issue.

    I can also confirm BOffs not present on Dyson sphere or Kobali Battleground maps but are present on new romulus and nimbus.

    Please also see https://www.arcgames.com/en/forums/startrekonline#/discussion/1244137/no-away-team-on-kobali

    I am however appalled at the lack of testing that leaves such a bug to go unchecked and so far its not being acknowledged or listed in the known issues of the 10/9 patch notes and there was no patch notes for today 10/10 either and so far no patch notes for 10/11 for which a maintenance down time is scheduled.

    "Request Reinforcements" is showing once you take a point, but it only spawns the usual cadre of NPC reinforcements (if you have Command Credits) and not your 2 chosen BOFF's.

    However it is still spawning the leveled number of enemy NPC's as though you had your BOFF's with you, which makes it almost unplayable if someone runs in shoots a couple of times and runs out (as many do, to try and increase their rewards).

    Hello everyone! Is the UI box that says "Request Reinforcements" below your characters health bar?

    No it is not. The only way to get to the Request Reinforcements (not the Request Reinforcements that shows up after capturing a zone) is through Help & Support as I've outlined in another thread and will repeat here...

    Here is your workaround until it is fixed:
    if you want your boffs with you in the battlezone, go to help & support, request gm help, stuck, bridge officers are stuck or missing, request reinforcements. this will beam down your 2 boffs. The 2 it beams down are somewhat random so you may need to swap equipment around if you didn't get the 2 you normally use.


  • This no awayteam issue is still not being acknowledged as a known issue in the most recent patch notes and I would love to know why lol.

    Here is another workaround in the meantime that was found in another thread.

    Here is another workaround by a nice fellow on Kobali, who sent me a tell while I was standing around looking confused;

    /fillpetteamlist

    Type that into your chat and press enter, and two of your boffs will show up.

    No away team for me either.
  • Workaround update: To Stop random boff beam down and ensure you get the boffs that you want when you use the workarounds below. Here is what my fleet mate took her time to test out (Beth Brewer: I tried this 5 times and it worked if you take the two boffs out of your away team and leave the 2 you want with you in dino land and then put the other 2 spots with just security you will have the two you want with you each time)

    A the moment it's a bug, but I could totally see this becoming a feature... For a while, we have been at a point where Dyson ground is basically soloable...

    Dude read the bloody text first duh whats wrong with you let me guess you did not read the entire post and like any other idiot and then says it does not work re-read the ENTIRE POST FOLLOW DIRECTIONS leave the 2 you want with you in dino land and then put the other 2 spots with just security you will have the two you want with you each time).

    once again in case you can't read it the first time leave the 2 you want with you in Dyson and or kobali and then put the other 2 spots with just security you will have the two you want with you each time)

    Read the entire post again idiot pay close attention to the spot where it tells you to leave the 2 you want with you in dino land/dyson or kaboli and then put the other 2 spots with just security you will have the two you want with you each time)

    To do this since I have to hold your hand press the i key or open your status panel click on the tab that says stations remember to leave the two bridge officers you want alone then change the other two slots to security making sure to beam back up the first time then beam back down then paste this into your chat panel /fillpetteamlist and you should have the correct bridge officers with you. Remember to do this for the ground or bottom four slots as the upper ones are for space...

    Good Grief GRRRRRR.....

    Thank you for the workaround. Haven't done ground in awhile so this was a new bug for me.

    Thank you very much but I can't really take credit for it though lots of players have contributed to the workaround.

    /fillpetteamlist sometimes may beam down only one BOFF just repeat the command to beam the other down nothing else needs to be done.
  • Yeah this definitely is now a feature I seriously doubt they will ever bother to fix it lmao.
