  • It's been 2 days and still no official word about this pack. I talked to 5 fleetmates yesterday and EACH one of them told me different things about what is/isn't account unlocked or single character only. I've seen NO consistent answers either when asking in zone chat. I do NOT want to grab this pack unless I can actually…
  • I'm hearing conflicting things about the Mirror Pack Giveaway. Some folks are saying it's all account unlocked items. Others are saying it only the gear. Still others only the uniforms. And a last group are saying that NONE of it is account unlocked and it all for a single character. Which, if any, of these is correct? I…
  • So, I want to be absolutely certain about this Mirror Pack Giveaway. This stuff is for a single character only, nothing in it is an account unlock at all? That seems like such a waste. I could maybe understand the gear being single character only, but the uniforms should probably be account unlocks. And we currently have…
  • Ya know, that's actually not a bad idea at all. I could support something like that.
  • An extra Space trait, okay. An extra Ground trait, well, I suppose I could find something. An extra Device slot seems sorta useless to me. But then again, I can't think of a single thing that even goes in a device slot that I actually use. An extra Kit Module slot might be alright. So, we can pick and choose which thing we…
  • I have to agree with what others here are saying. This 'turn' of events is so outta left field that there HAS to be something missing. Or this blog was posted out of order. You really should build up to this type of reveal instead of just dropping it on players heads. I'm certain there will be other blog posts giving story…
  • Well, according to the launcher, the No Win Scenario event ended 8 days ago now. I wish I'd known about it earlier, especially since again, according to the launcher, it only lasted for 3 days. Oh well, I guess I'll wait for the next event to make more progress. /sarcasm Yeah, still to this day, the launcher is showing…
  • Hey, two new Dilithium sinks and they are permanent! That's great! Oh, but you're taking away the free options? Well that's stupid. Really stupid. Like Stupid fell out of the stupid tree and hit every stupid branch on the way down before hitting the stupid ground, then got up and grabbed a stupid branch and bashed it's own…
  • Ha, I guess they started getting too many complaints about the Red Alert event not awarding the Ship Upgrade like the launcher said, so they changed it to the No Win Scenario "upcoming" event instead. An event, that according to their own launcher, ENDED SIX DAYS AGO or is nearly a year (or more) away, since it doesn't…
  • Late to the party but I just finished the Red Alert event and indeed did not get the Ship Upgrade token as the blog, launcher and other sources said. Seriously, if the CM can't do their job properly, they need to hire a new CM. I sit and worry about the stuff I post and go back and proofread several times before I hit the…
  • Pretty sure they are talking about the Legendary DD that came in the pack with the Scim.
  • Because there is a backlog on Zen due to the price being maxed out. Been this way (off and on) for a month or more. The Devs claim they are working on ways to bring the price down, and they did try one thing that briefly brought it down to 499-ish Dil per Zen, but it quickly went back up. Patience is the key.
  • I just got the ship today and I'm a bit confused. Why is this ship classified as a Science ship for Admiralty? It's a Cruiser with an Engineering focus and we had a Risian Sci ship last year, so... WTF.
  • Apologies for the late reply. The only thing I listed that is currently available for Zen with absolutely no changes is the 25 slot DOff slot upgrade. Honestly, does anyone even buy that currently? The 100 slot upgrade is the better deal in the Zen store, so what would it really hurt just directly porting that to be…
  • Just some simple things that are already in the game that could be adjusted to be sold for Dil... Bank Slots/Inventory Slots/Account Bank Slots - Half the size of the ones in the Zen store, so 6/6/5. Would still max out at the same number obviously, but would take longer to reach it. DOff slots - Make the 25 slot increase…
  • The 15% off you're seeing *might* be tied to your fleet discount from the Dilithium Mine. I would think the 20% off sale would be in addition to that but who knows. So it's entirely possible Cryptic either forgot to enable the 20% off sale or there might be a bug while in a fleet that has the Dil Mine discount. Either is…
  • It sure won't help the DilEx go below 490 any time soon. Cryptic - "Hey players, we hear you and we're working on ways to lower the DilEx." Players - "Yay, about time!" Cryptic - "Here's some vanity shields you can buy for Dil for a few days." Players - "Umm, okay. Cool I guess. But what about long term ways to help out?"…
  • Yeah, pretty sure it's going to be just a single shield of your choice for the price, not all 10. I could be wrong as rereading it it doesn't actually say either way. But, even if it were all 10 for 280k Dil, as a single character unlock the answer is still nope.
  • I'm honestly somewhat shocked by this. I had no interest in the game, figuring it'd end up using the same control setup as Neverwinter, which I hated. And I've never been able to get into fantasy games for some reason. Love reading fantasy, enjoy shows in the genre but games just don't do it for me. I gotta wonder just how…
  • This is not something I have any interest in. None of my Dil will be going towards this but by the sound of it many others will be throwing their Dil at it. Overall it's an interesting idea. Maybe it'll work, perhaps not. I can't see into the future so I'll just wait and see. If these were account unlocks, then maybe I'd…
  • There is nothing about it on my launcher. The three listed NEWS items are for the Infinity Promo Packs, 20% ship sale and Bonus Dil week. The left panel is for the Infinity Promo Packs and the right slideshow panel are for the 20% ship sale, bonus Dil week, the Risian Cruiser, the New Genesis bundle and Gamma recruits. As…
  • Some gear, like the gear that comes "standard" on any ship, is meant to have no value. So that sort of stuff will likely (hopefully) never be changed. Also, any gear you get from events or from the CStore again are meant to have no value, as a lot of that stuff can be reclaimed pretty much infinitely. But, any gear we get…
  • Oh, good. Not just me. At least I know I'm not completely insane.
  • I agree, which is why I think the TFO needs a hard timer at the very least. Some people are just too stubborn for their own good, let alone others. And eventually, this TFO will likely be put in game on a permanent basis and the last thing anyone wants is to be stuck with a PuG while RTFO'ing that won't even try.
  • Some of us can't SEE we've been targeted due to the extreme amount of VFX going on in the game anymore. Or at least, it's difficult as hell to focus on it. I actually had a player today say that they don't even see the green ring around the ship they're supposed to go to. At first I was like "How can that be?" so I watched…
  • I have a couple of issues with this TFO, though oddly, neither of them are really about the TFO itself. 1. Players who (as others have said) don't go to the green circle to complete their task. However, I will actually give a bit of leeway on this because of my second issue with this TFO. 2. The amount of VFX spam these…
  • Just had this happen to me in the new event TFO, so adding my voice to the multitude.
  • As mentioned, this is a pre-patch. It does this every time you close the game down. The launcher will restart after you close the game and check to see if you have the pre-patch. When it sees you do, it closes. This is normal. I believe it is to help take the strain off the servers when the patch goes Live so that not…
  • Miner Instabilities, ground queue.
  • My guess as to the timing of the Temporal Recruit return would be probably after the Summer event. We'll have this new Klingon event for the better part of a month starting next week, taking us close to July. After that, they'll probably do the next tie-in event for the Mega-Event so that'll be 3 weeks putting us into mid…
