    Yeay!

    Also it looks like all swimwear ever invented already made it into STO :P

    Sadly not - the Risa NPCs wear swimwear outfits that are not available to players.

    Do you think it will be possible to wear the TRIBBLE Pistols shirt with the kilt? I sure hope they are not in different categories.

    I do not like the overall look of the ship this year, but I do like how the warp half-rings have the Lukari engine vapor like the N'Kaam. The longer sleeker version in the voting illustrations was good, this one is just chunky and fugly like the Defiant class mated with a Dominion bug under an ugly tree (it is way past ugly stick level of ugly).

    System wise it looks good from the little bit they showed in the stream, though I wish they would have made it something besides a Pilot ship again (what's with this Risan obsession with Pilot?), it is great for the corvette but this thing looks like it would do better with Miracle Worker or Intelligence. And it would be nice to have had something besides just the Daystrom/Antaak/Varel for a sci-MW, especially one with a secondary deflector like the summer ship has.

    Keep Sci-MW for the Nova class ;)











    (Just to be clear I am joking! )

    sadly the ship looks less appealing with the color palate they chose.
    the original seemed better than the final.

    and that along with more baseball stuff? meh.

    not sure im gonne be into it as much this year. i know i will do stuff, but it seems a cut and paste was done for the most part, without some really decent new things to toss in.

    oh well.
    meh

    Little disappointed we still haven't gotten any summer themed space abilities

    Whatever happened to fishing as a summer event? I guess there is no more juice left in designing Risa except fro copy/paste year after year.

    we actually have something like that in the form of an experimental weapon - it yanks targets toward the impact point just as hard as graviton spike does...its pull radius isn't anywhere near as good, though - it should really get an increase

    I am still waiting for the option for my male Reman to be able to go shirtless on Risa. He is quite pale and needs to get some sun.

    still can't believe we passed on the island dome ship, for this eyesore.

    Agreed on this subject, but aside from that I am very optimistic about the Summer Event. Risa and QWW are the high points of the year for me!

    I can't wait to get started. I just hope my toons will be able to lose that "quarantine 15", (call it seven kilos) so they can fit into their swimsuits!

    Happydance!!

    I'm assuming you're referring to what we Americans call Soccer. (As our Football is rather... heavily armored and not really global)
    That's it exactly.
    Also people like having the baseball caps as options too.
    How sad, then, that more work wasn't put in on this simple front. Why isn't there a basic ball cap with color and logo options (the latter can draw from the various rep tracks, faction/service logos, and even certain accolades)? Extra credit if the cap can be worn backwards or have the sun protector oft associated with the classic Légion Etrangère cover (reference)...

    still no revamp on cost for summer items? costumes cost way too much for single char items.
  • jasonkirk#8984 jasonkirk Member Posts: 19 Arc User
    It is ... funny. The announcement post in the launcher contains outdated information (seasonal project in the now removed Event reputation) and has a classical link to the forum saying "Discuss this on the forum", yet the link merely lands us in the forum home page. There isn't any thread dedicated to it. However, I browsed around social media, and all I can see is people annoyed by yet another year of uncalled baseball abuse and by other parallel issues that clearly show the dev team didn't spend 2 minutes reading the sheer amount of players complaining about exactly that two years ago (when I started playing) and last Summer ... or they did read and came up with exactly what people people complained about in a condensed shot. It's not about "They can't please everyone..." but more like "It looks like they purposely took exactly what irritated the greater number of players."
    1. No more baseball (check, more baseball);
    2. Add Summer event DOff assignment (yet to be seen);
    3. No more Risian Pilot ship (check, one more pilot ship);
    4. More vacation themed attires (check, none were added);
    5. And I didn't do an exhaustive list.

    Looks like a rushed copy/paste job even though there was over a month delay for launch. Really this is getting boring.

    The only good thing about this T6 Risian ship is the universal console. I will grind it just for the fun of it.​​

    Ship stats are terrible IMO and not a good looking either. The console remains to be seen.​​

    At least the floater minigame is fast to complete each day.
    Ship Trait seems good for GW builds, depending how strong it is. Were GW builds weak? Do they need another trait for damage? :D

    Ship reminds me of the critters in the Conspiracy episode.

    Aside from the high turn rate and potential pilot slots, the ship itself looks pretty average. I'm definitely looking forward to trying out the trait and console on my Damar Drainlayer though. The wording on the trait seems a bit curious though - is it a persistent effect and/or a periodic electrical discharge? If the latter, how frequent is it?

    Time will tell, I suppose.

    Yeah that's correct...Flying high event would be the quickest still for the daily. Wonder if the sand sculpting mini game might work too but its not on the list....shame​​

    Last year the festival was basically unplayable because of all of the hackers, griefers, and trolls. It was not fun at all and I don't see how this year will be any different because Cryptic will not acknowledge that they have any problems. I have absolutely no interest in this festival and will absolutely not give Cryptic any more money unless they truly make some kind of effort to get rid of these antisocial people that ruin the game for everyone.

    I'm confused on what you think is bad about the stats. The pilot seating is really the only thing someone can have issue with here, but its perfectly usable without specialty seating as the LTC uni gives it the ability to build it in very different ways.

    It has escort level maneuverability, way beyond nearly every science ship. The shield modifier is excellent, and the hull is still better than some science ships. For exotic builds, you have a fast ship to add coolant ignition or eject warp plasma to the mix of exotics.

    Is it the best sci ship ever? No, but it is definitely not bad at all.

    Yet another ship with the 1x ltcom 3x lt boff setup, I hate it when they lack a second ltcom slot.
  • fred26291#2759 fred26291 Member Posts: 921 Arc User
    Some of the kit modules are nice but the typical cost is way high to be able to get them for all toons.
    Pass on all kit modules.

    I have no idea what you mean by this. Last year's Risa event seemed entirely normal to me, and I had a lot of fun, as always. Are you on console? I am on PC.

    Yeah. It would be better if the console layout was 2 Eng, 4 Tac, 5 Sci, the Lt Eng seat was downgraded to ensign, and Lt Tac seat was upgraded to Lt Cmdr.

    As it currently is, it's not unworkable, but these changes would make it way better.

    The ship is worth grinding for its trait. And for the free T6 science ship with a lot of potential.

    BTW anything more than just rumors about the "spa/beachside, swimsuit compatible ship interior"? A new admiralty card is neat but such a thing as a general all Risa ships unlock would be the must have real deal. The generic bridge/interior for these summer flair joyrides is just... weird. Double on KDF.

    they already said it does not have a new interior... we basically don't get new interiors anymore. not that we got them much in the first place.

    if I stop posting it doesn't make you right it. just means I don't have enough rum to continue interacting with you.
