  • If your problems are anything like mine, pull up a command line and type 'tracert patchserver.crypticstudios.com' ... it seems like after hitting a bunch of cogentco.com connects, it hangs somewhere down that line right before getting to the Cryptic servers. It's been like this ever since season 11.5 launch, so no idea if…
  • I do miss the days when space battles looked like space battles rather than fireworks shows. I know the tech fx guys need to keep busy, but every new torpedo/power/ship trait looks more bombastic compared to the last. I feel less like Trek and more like a flying circus. It's like every new effect has to be so distinct and…
  • Epsilon if only for something different. Theta looks like a cruiser that needs to go on a diet so it can achieve something higher than warp 7.4. At least Epsilon looks like it can make an entrance, if only to shout 'oh yeeeeeah!' when it breaks through the wall.
  • I was wondering about this as well, the downtime yesterday killed the time I had set aside to wrap up Risa. In addition, when the event ended all the Kits and new items disappeared from my personal store, so I can't even peruse it with the favors I had gotten. :(
  • Has there been any word on this, or is it a stealth nerf to EC/time now? I don't see anything on it in today's patch notes, not a known issue or something rectified with the patch. Surprised Taco let this slip by considering how meticulous he was on everything else. Unless it was intentional.
  • I often think of this video when this comes up: Extra Credits - Depth vs Complexity - Why More Features Don't Make a Better Game I like having a game that's easy to learn and play, but has depth when you want to get more into it. As much as I dislike console ports, one of the really nice things about having a…
    in Too much? Comment by lirokai April 2015
  • I'm part of zobovor's second group, and my concerns have nothing to do with storylines ending. They've monetized everything so hard over the last year compared to previous years that it almost feels like a cash grab before the IP is revoked or imminent shutdown. They've also thrown us from event to event, which normally is…
  • Hunh, it's still there. Thought it'd be corrected soonish once someone pointed it out. Funny thing is, even if you type in Rod Sterling into Google, it'll correct you.
  • Actually looks more like Robert Patrick to me. Paris-1000!
  • It's been so long since I saw Endgame, I forgot there was an adult Miral there! I just rewatched her scenes and she did a really good job even though it wasn't extensive. Perfect combination of her parents' rebelliousness, dedication, and loyalty. Looking forward to it!
  • So true. I loved the Mass Effect armor. So did STO, as their armor at launch (and eventually released to us in costume pieces) and glowies were all very inspired by it. Maybe they started from Into Darkness for some of the inspiration and just made a wrong turn at some point. Sorry but this does not scream 'futuristic…
  • Unfortunately I'm pretty sure that armor took weeks to make from beginning to end, so I doubt any changes are going in now. Seriously though, the character art team needed to simply ask themselves: "Facing the greatest threat the universe has ever known, what would you want to possibly be buried wearing?" At least they…
  • Great, looking forward to the new gear and powers. Although not so sure about going full Tron there. I love Tron, just not necessarily in my Star Trek. Wonder how tough the queues are going to be to get those datacores. Somewhat related: can we get that armor in Champions Online? :P
  • Ah, thanks for the reply. Back to ISA it is. :)
  • Are they soloable/doable with BOffs?
  • I used to think they had better things to spend their time on, yet here we are. Please, opt-out option. My main issue with the loadout system is that the implementation is a halfway mess that causes chaos, even when it works as intended and isn't buggy. If we had 'unlocks' or all the gear/weapons were stored in a library…
  • You know, I didn't think of it that way, good point. When we used to earn more EC I'd then buy things off of the exchange, but since that nerf and the new dilithium drains, dilithium (time) has become the currency of choice...something I tend to be short on. By removing good drops, they've been pushing us towards crafting…
  • My tiny fleet is really the only thing keeping me going now. Unlike the OP with the mountain of resources, I have very little and the EC/dil resource hits over the last several months have made sure I either grind like mad (not enough spare time...I'm casual) or pay. Well, they finally jumped the shark by putting in so…
  • That worked, thanks so much! I thought from the name it would mean I would have to hold down the button to aim, but it toggles just fine with that. Had no idea how much I missed that until it was gone. :) Thanks again!
  • I didn't realize how long it had been since I did a ground mission until the Winter Event started. Middle mouse aim no workie. No idea how they could break that after years of it working.
  • Difference is a little over three days' worth of dilithium refinement is too much to give to players who planned ahead. Here, have some lobi instead. :mad:
  • I thought they were making enough bank with the lockboxes, guess they also have to drive the value of dilithium up so that people pay more Zen for them. But yah, they're pretty much snuffing dilithium routes where they can. From the Dyson commendation dailies to ICE. Surprised there wasn't more of a protest...or if there…
  • I disagree that all of their features are broken; I'd estimate about 80-90% of it works. It's just glaring when it doesn't. For example, they heavily played up the new Undine Battlezone, and that's a stalled mess. I'm pretty sure their QA is of the 'works on my system, not sure what your problem is' variety, though. Look…
  • My main concern will be griefing and afking...just like any other queue. Hopefully you guys have tested this in 'negative' scenarios as well as on teams with friends. Some days I can barely trust PUGs to fire their phasers straight. Other than that, looks promising. Too bad there's not a version I can just play solo, read…
  • The problem is also the slippery slope. I imagine the Winter Event went well, so their conclusion is 'if we can keep players logging in every day ad nauseam, we'll make much money.' However, that's strictly looking at metrics and extrapolating without utilizing extraneous data like oh, it was a holiday month, or that the…
  • "Tired of the long grind (that we put in)? We have the Perfect(tm) solution for you!"
  • I didn't realize they were adding something to skip the grind to the C-Store. Guess I'm done. Just unsubscribed. I'm sure the numbers and metrics were up for them during the Winter Event, and I put my time in on my characters, but obviously they don't understand grind fatigue or burnout. I barely got mine in with real life…
