  • This thread is over 16 pages, so apologies if these have already been said. Option 1: Money Bomb Think of this as something older, more established players would buy to gift out things to newer players and/or less dedicated fleet members. The concept is simple enough - an objective I buy for energy credits, then go to a…
  • While I agree with the spirit of what you're saying, the truth is that isn't how business works and will not happen. Once a decision like this has been made, the ONLY thing that will change it is irrefutable proof that this will have a strongly negative impact on revenue - enough to change the math of resource allocation.…
  • I've been watching the responses, and the make-up of the people responding here and on other social channels has surprised me a little bit. Several "influential" STO players (core fleet/armada members, discussion leaders, and the obvious foundry authors) seem to be reacting most negatively to this, including people who…
  • If I'm reading correctly, you're saying it's more a relative "excellent" than true "excellent?" (Add Mr. Burns tent fingers as necessary.) Along the lines of how every May/June there's some new pop song everyone says is great, but they don't mean Wagner, Elvis, Diana Ross, or any of the other true greats. Instead, it's…
  • This is not a personal attack or snide remark, but can someone explain to me how they find the missions "excellent" in this storyline? I'm not trying to single anyone out, just this was the most appropriate quote to pull. I keep seeing this statement, but I'm wondering what is behind it/why people feel this way. What about…
  • I know this is going to sound kind of snide and nasty with the "law of internet," but please understand that's not my intention at all. I'm not intending any tone, just being honest. I play games so I can get rewards and enjoy things, not for other people to get rewards. What others can get doesn't really matter to my…
  • I'm not even able to claim a ship on most of my characters (all 65), let alone an upgrade token. Scrolled through everything from Tiers 4-6, including fleet ships, and only a Romulan I think could buy anything with a token. Everything else was the normal currency. Seems like a pretty underwhelming "reward" at this point.
  • I'm pretty sure anyone who collected an admiralty or duty officer mission in the last hour or so knows.
  • Based on their track record, I don't doubt that they would actually do this, but do you have an actual source? Would having this break buying the pack in some way? Is it confirmed that this "new" Galor will unlike the spiral disruptors? Plenty of questions that I have seen asked but not yet answered by actual Cryptic/PWE.
  • Asking again, because I still have not seen it answered: how does this work with the pre-existing lockbox/lobi ship boxes? Does someone who already has the Galor unboxed now get that ship on all characters? Does unboxing an existing, unpacked box grant anything?
  • What happens with the old lobi/lockbox ships themselves? They weren't deleted from the game, just made more rare. I think I still have two ships in boxes I never decided who to give to.
  • Thanks. I didn't think to check in the official dilithium store - forgot that even still exists. Found it there in the Reclaim tab.
  • This is an account unlock, correct? Where do you go on other characters to retrieve it? I had some thingies left over from the last event, so completed it today. My other characters can do the bonus daily rep, but no one seems to have access to the console itself in the reputation/reclaim stores. Looks like they can all…
  • Friends, you're being trolled. It's always better just to ignore the trolls and not engage with them, it's not worth the time. Plus they WANT you to be upset and flustered. I recommend this handy field-spotters' guide to trolls:…

  • Ok, don't know what's going on, but it's not posting the pic and is giving me a "Failed to find discussion for commenting" error when I try to edit. It's just this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6z6A5TP7uA
  • Respectfully, Mr. Fangs, I find a lot of what you said to be ill-informed. I'm not accusing you of lying or something so hostile, but of not properly considering the facts. I point this out in hopes that it can help clarify some of the concerns, and maybe lead to better communication on all side. *Note: Below, "you" refers…
  • You know what's great about you, puddin'? You really put the "fun" in "funeral." Well, that was fun. Who's for Chinese?
  • I think it's time to close this thread. Even a community moderator is engaging in what - from an outside perspective - just looks like trolling. Several people here have argued both for and against what they state throughout this thread, and it just seems to be going further downhill. There are two very distinct camps,…
  • From days of long ago, from uncharted regions of the universe, comes a legend. The legend of Martok, Defender of the Universe. A mighty warrior - loved by good, feared by evil. As Martok's legend grew, peace settled across the galaxy. On planet Earth, a galaxy alliance was formed. Together with the good planets of the…
  • Everyone has their own experiences. My experience with this expansion is that I tried to start several queues, several things (including CCA) popped up to "Accept," and then nothing happened at all for 5-10 minutes. In looking at the queue list, I couldn't even tell if I was in a queue or not, and didn't bother going any…
  • I don't understand. Why would anyone NOT want to dive right into PP? And, hey, if you get CBS All Access you can even catch an TRIBBLE or two (eventually) while you're at it.
  • Oh, thank god. Another promo, but I'm not the least bit interested in this. Don't need crafting materials, and to me the ships look horrible.
  • I would like to see the data that shows selling multiple ships to the same account is more profitable than selling one ship to an account. In theory, making them only character unlocks results in more sales and hence more profits. It does not acknowledge the lost sales from people who don't see it as a wise investment -…
  • Nope, not fixed - at least not completely. Just tried a Crystalline Entity with my fleet T6 Galaxy-X. Went right up to the entity, started firing, and then separated saucer and launched Scorpions. Scorpions stuck around to fight, saucer maybe fired off a phaser beam (couldn't tell for sure with all the stuff on-screen) and…
  • I'm heartened to see the number of "none" responses. If they're going to keep putting things in RNG/Lobi almost exclusively, at least make them account unlocks. The investment of resources for just one character is not worth the effort.
  • Well, at least I found Heaven (or something similar). http://imgur.com/LIEz9oA http://imgur.com/ctMYyw8 http://imgur.com/s8BIAmz Edit: Trying to get these images to show in the thread for easier viewing. See if this helps:
  • This annoyed the TRIBBLE out of me for the longest time, but I found a method that worked for me on multiple characters. It's screwy in that location AND angle of approach seem to be important. 1. On the sector map, go to the Badlands (don't enter it, just get there on the map) 2. Point your ship at Defera and start up…
  • RNG, hands down. Not because I believe there's no place for it, but because the development team is so overly reliant on it. Banning it could generate some serious creativity.
  • Thanks for the info, y'all. I'm increasingly under the impression that the ground kits need a cleaning pass. Not a full on revamp, just a clean-up of some of these really odd and dangling threads.
