    The PlayStation version had a maintenance early this morning 2021 MAR 10 at 0500 (5:00 AM) PST. Was it anything to do with these fixes, or something different?

    That was just server maintenance. No fixes were implemented during that time. If there were, they would have been mentioned in the patch notes, on STO's Twitter account, and/or other official outlets where they disseminate information.

    Thanks for the fixes and updates, Cryptic.

    P.S. Please fix the 23rd century TOS suit for men.

    "If you already claimed a Rare version, head to your Temporal Agent to reclaim the reward for a Very Rare version. You'll have to dismiss the Rare version to do so." You forgot to mention you have to be level 20+ in the patch notes to reclaim your DOFF after dismissing them. Please add that there. Thanks. :)

    KK, wishful thinking, since we have the Recruitment Event still going. Would have really liked to have this:

    "Resolved an issue with the Bridge Officer reward from Klingon Recruitment causing it to be Rare instead of Very Rare. If you already claimed a Rare version, head to your Temporal Agent to reclaim the reward for a Very Rare version. You'll have to dismiss the Rare version to do so."

    Woah nice load of fixes. The launcher however doesn't indicate there is going to be downtime though. Can this be remedied.

    and it has TY :)

    The improvements to Command abilities are very welcome!

    Any idea when we might get the items from the last winter event back in the event store?

    Would have been really nice to include that huge patch in the huge maintenance yesterday (6 hours), so we wouldn't need another maintenance today. The Voth event is once again pretty difficult to do for Europeans with early shifts.

    If you already claimed a Rare version, head to your Temporal Agent to reclaim the reward for a Very Rare version. You'll have to dismiss the Rare version to do so.

    Does not work if your Recruit is less than Level 20.

    Mine is still working his way up. I examined my BOFF, she was Rare. I dismissed her per the Notes, and went to the Temporal Agent in the Great Hall. NOTHING (including my Recruit) is available. I checked my Recruit Interface Device, she is not available from there either. The reward shows as already claimed (and the only change is Honor to Superior Honor. Had I known that, I would have kept the Rare version. What a worthless upgrade. Changing Basic Space Specialist to Superior would have been worthwhile).

    Anyway, just to make sure, I beamed out and returned, and checked both the Agent and the Device again - nothing.

    Thanks to following these patch notes, I have lost a great BOFF, and cannot reclaim her.

    @ambassadorkael

    Can we get some clarification on the issue regarding the Bridge Officer reward please? I saw some in game chat about the issue and also read here that if you dismiss the rare Boff you are then unable to claim the very rare one. Is this a known bug or is there some other issue?

    I too have the blue variant, and would like to upgrade, but not if I may lose the Boff altogether.

    Thank you in advance.

    Captains that did not receive their Event Campaign Progress, due to a previous issue that prevented Legacy Progress contribution, will have that progress awarded to them. If true this is welcomed & appreciated. I'll also state well done on PWE/Cryptic offering some after the fact fixes lately in STO which is sadly better than expected & appreciated.

    Resolved an issue that was preventing the "Mycelial Realm" TFO from appearing in the PvE TFO UI. Good for the players hunting to do it.

    Resolved an issue with the Bridge Officer reward from Klingon Recruitment causing it to be Rare instead of Very Rare.
    If you already claimed a Rare version, head to your Temporal Agent to reclaim the reward for a Very Rare version. You'll have to dismiss the Rare version to do so.
    This reads as a good fix, but from in-game it isn't fixing properly. Even after dismissing not reclaimable & I saw in game chat that perhaps the BOFF's traits got adjusted, so probably best to relook & address.

    Resolved an issue that was causing the Environmental Suit (23rd Century) to not display fully when worn. This is 1 of those small cosmetic glitches that has persisted for, as someone stated above, around 2 years which is pathetic, but if it's finally fixed well done.

    Inspiration (Command Spec Ship Ability):
    Activating Bridge Officer Abilities now generates 20% more Inspiration than it previously did.
    It got a good reception when it was first stated on a livestream last week &, if working, I'm sure players will be appreciative of the small little Inspiration boost.

    Overwhelm Emitters:
    Triggers will no longer be consumed by DOT ticks, or very low sources of damage.
    Doubled magnitude of both Shield Drain and Shield Healing at all ranks (from 10/15/20% to 20/30/40%).
    Reads as a decent to good improvement for those using this Command Ability.

    Not sure if intended or not since not in the patch notes but way to go in bringing back the KDF recruitment little 25 dilithium droppings.

    My only negative is STILL no Q's Winter Wonderland newest manuals & modules??? At least nothing mentioned in the patch notes so hopefully they were just not important enough to mention with all the itty bitty fixes & improvements.

    Yes I also looked into this replacement BOFF, I assume its the one from the kdf recruit receiver, extends Ambush by 10 sec, there is nothing at the temporal operative to claim, i copied my toon to test server and tried to reclaim from receiver and that does not work so have NOT dismissed the rare one.

    Please fix

    Well, I dismissed my KDF Boff and after a minute or so the Temporal Agent displayed the VR Boff for claiming. The Infiltrator Spece Trait was bumped to Superior.

    Not fixed. Logged into my TOS toon and the problem is still there. Have you checked your suit? Thank you.

    I'm still getting the bug. Only my helmet and pants on the 23rd Century environmental suit is showing.

    I need to update my comment. I have the Zen store suit that I paid money for. And it is still having the bug.

    They actually had engineer performing decently due to reroute from life support and some traits that were benefitting from that when it was reducing captain abilities. I assume though because it was making engineering gameplay tolerable in space is the reason why that ability got nerfed.

    Update: Swing! And a miss - on my Main TOS era character I just tried the 23c EV suit - and it still has the same graphical error it's had since Kael and the Dev who thought the bug was really funny - showcased it on his Twitch stream.

    Infiltrator was already Superior on the Blue version. It was Honor they changed to Superior for the purple, according to the Device preview. Meh.
  • vorwodavorwoda Member Posts: 684 Arc User
    UPDATE: My KDF recruiit just turned level 20 and was able to claim the purple version of the BOFF from the Temporal Agent. There should have been mention of the fact that if you are level 19 or less you can't even reclaim your OWN recruitment items. I knew, of course, that you can't claim items from the OTHER recruitments until past level 20, but the way this fix was described, here was no warning that your would be borked yourself by following Dev instructions.

    > @keepcalmchiveon said:
    > how are you only lvl 20 and have the boff already? seems odd...

    I mean I had mine before I finished the first story arc, so it’s not that crazy. Ambush kills are super easy if you’re used to that type of build already.

    Actually, I found what was fixed is not what we thought was fixed. This fixes only the common 23c EV suit from the Tholian mission and not the very rare 23c EV suit from the C-Store "Agents of Yesterday" Expansion pack. So yes that still needs to be fixed.
