  • That's pretty much THE way to do it, make sure you're offering 25 dil per zen to ensure there aren't any mishaps and you end up with the zen and yeah then quickly cancel the order and withdraw on whatever toon, there is no other way of doing it.
  • There is an unload fleet provisions type project on the embassy, takes 40 provisions and pays squat (well 5 holding XP, so close enough). I've seen a few unsuspecting people load that project a few times which then blocks out the associate upgrade mission slot until some poor person ditches the Fleet Credits on clearing…
  • For me the big reasons why I keep playing this game are:* It's Star Trek and I get to fly and captain a starship (yeah) * Game is fairly casual in terms of difficulty (in most instances - other than the occasional PUG that seems to take things far to serious) In terms of retention, things that keep me logging are new…
  • Leeta was confirmed in the impromptu live stream yesterday with Chase Masterson (who was in the studio recording her lines). Given we now have the entire Ferengi family except Rom (Quark, Nog, Leeta and Brunt all announced), there has got to be good odds going that the last actor will be Max Grodenchik reprising Rom. I'm…
  • Interesting mission which gives an interesting perspective from and different point of view on recent events. However the mission felt a touch short in some of its development of the general plot and maybe could have done with a little more fleshing out of Neth Parr's background and why she'd turn on the Tzenkethi. We see…
  • From what I've seen/heard from the various podcasts and the announcement post last week it sounds like the infinity box is the box for season 14.5 rather than another new box. But fear not, the Victory is Life e-mail that came out last week promised a Gamma Quadrant box coming with Victory is Life in June (which looks…
  • While the idea sounds great in theory I can't see it ever happening given: a) The complaints from the glass cannon brigade would be on a par with some of the past "balance" passes that have reduced effectiveness of various pieces of equipment. b) Many missions are so dps orientated that removing a respawn will have no…
  • Isn't this in the FCT by now? @badmoonrisen can we get something about increasing Dilithium Refinement limits added to the FCT seems to come up in one shape or another every week. And back on topic, if they do raise the cap then all those buying zen will start complaining that the dilithium exchange rates are too high like…
  • Just tried Gauntlet Advance with a Pug for the first time. Not sure whether it was just down to the fact the queue decided to spawn Voth (with their exotic damage abilities) but the entire team just seemed to spend a good deal of time dying and taking masses of hull damage, and it seemed to be rather difficult to actually…
  • To build on this, using traditional heals on the Maru is pretty pointless as like every other NPC in the game its a hit point sponge with low resists (hence it still dies fast), but that means using traditional heals barely do anything for it (you might get 5% of its hull repaired with engineering team if you're lucky. On…
  • Interesting, I thought I saw something similar the other day but then dismissed it as being me and probably not having taken enough damage or the likes. I'd speculate that the renaming of the Miracle Worker to Miraculous Repairs has probably not been applied to the trait properly and so it's still looking to reset the now…
  • While I agree that the queues need some help and that admiralty rewards are rather generous relative to other sources nerfing admiralty isn't the answer (and when has Cryptic ever nerfed something to buff something else in compensation). I'd also note that certain queues (CCA/ISA) remain fairly popular even now, so the…
  • Personally I've taken to only doing the event on one toon (I've all event grinded out), so I'm not fussed about speed running and just want to kill stuff and have some fun with my main. I've also come to the view that it's a great opportunity to troll those that go into pug's and expect everyone to die after 5 rounds…
  • If the add new species then I'd suggest that it's likely to be Cardassian/Dominion focused. However, I wouldn't say that's a certainty at this stage given how Cryptic tends to struggle supporting the 2 and a half factions we currently have and adding another faction either full or mini like the Romulans might be difficult…
  • Bits of the new UI are growing on me (it looks nice, and the prebuilt filters are useful). Not to mention I don't miss double clicking on a queue to join it and suddenly finding myself prompted for whatever mission was the newest featured one at the top of the list or the list that (and features list on shuttle weekend in…
  • Well there is the Romulan Rep Gear, which I guess is the closest equivalent. Although would be nice to get a mission reward set with an Omni Plasma weapon that can be mounted alongside a crafted one (be that Imperial Navy Munitions set or something else).
  • My T6 Fleet Miranda has taken the path of great Miranda class ships and become the "USS Cannon Fodder" with one mission to boldly go into combat and avoid the fate of many Miranda class ships before her by not getting blown to pieces during the first exchange of fire.
  • Questions been asked in the main announcement thread and @"ambassadorkael#6946" has said he'll enquire.
  • Ok, so gonna have to ask given that the blog is not clear. Do we have to beat level 3 to get a merit (I'm clear enough from the blog that everything else needs you to get to level 4 or beyond)?
  • Assuming you're a Fed and assuming you're after the ground accolade, otherwise Beta Thoridor Patrol is where you want to be for space kills It used to be and as far as I'm aware this is still the case, that only one of the story missions has a single killable Klingon Rebel which according to STO Wiki is Fang from the Snap…
  • For me, I'd like to see something done that allows more fleet marks to be dumped by players in max level fleets/armadas. Be this opening up a further optional project track that can only slot the 2K fleet mark dump project (or even a bigger one) and/or increasing the amount of marks that need to be dumped into max level…
  • From the way things are ordered in the journal, I guess its working as intended such that you do Act 1, then get called away to do Capture the Flag, then come back to do Act 2, then get called away again before returning. While I agree it breaks the flow, I'm not sure its a bug or if it's a deliberate ordering thing and if…
  • Wouldn't surprise me if this wasn't a Sompek event but a placeholder for something else. We know that it's been said that there was another new event queue in the works but wasn't quite ready for Season 13, so I wonder if it is this. We also know Mine Trap was taken out ages ago to be reworked (although same was said of…
  • I don't think that New Duty Officers X2 accolade has ever worked and if memory serves its been there since Delta Rising. Maybe it'll get fixed when the new expansion arrives.....
  • Sadly your problems explained where you said "In three of those cases a several times I flew up to cubes and they blew up before I could do damage due to serious DPS from others in the instance before me", as I understand it the AFK system is set so that you have to do something like 1% of the total damage on the map to…
  • Nope, console and PC versions are entirely separate (basically think of them as 2 separate games).
  • Been a bit since I ran this, but way I always found best and which enabled me to get most if not all of the transports is: 1) Ensure you're on minimal difficulty (minimises the HP sponges and hence time to get through NPC's) 2) The mission is fairly dps focused, so bring something with decent firepower. I also find focused…
  • Sounds like it's working per design then. They did change it a while back so all sources of spec points (Fed Admiralty Tour, Featured Episodes etc) count towards the cap whereas those certain ones didn't used too, However for whatever reason points of those types which were collected before the change don't count towards…
  • Maybe Torg's been infiltrated by a Shape shifter and it's an early hint to a Gamma Quadrant Storyline for the eagle eyed? Or maybe a clone related story as one of the K'Gan's is actually a clone?
  • You should be able to receive 150 Spec points total (at this time - the limit gets lift each time they add a new spec) which will allow you to fill up all the spec trees after which filling the XP bar will grant dilithium. When you say you've got 40 points total, do you mean that you have 40 unspent points and have spent a…
