  • (Quote) A toggle on and off is ok its the forced on I do not like. The problem is these days most people who watch TOS never had film grain as they watched the remastered versions via streaming or bluray so for them its not added flavor. Its just…
  • I too love people like you as I can destroy the ships fast but then have problems interacting with the tractor beams. By the time I have managed to get 1 beam done someone else could have done 4+. The AFK system often does more harm then go. It ofte…
  • (Quote) Well they could get rid of that horrible pointless visual static that has no purposed other then to cause headaches and causes the graphic's to look worse then they should. Apart from some poor graphical choices I don't recall there being…
  • (Quote) That’s not a lie and my claim is correct. Just because you don’t do any team work and you don’t talk to other players it doesn’t mean that’s the same for the rest of us. As you know I play Elite as my default setting and in my expreince w…
  • (Quote) Perhaps you still have your testing notes you could dig out and past the results of the testing. You said you was involved in a thread documenting TFO rewards. Could that thread have any evidence as the way you wrote it suggest you tested…
  • (Quote) Why do you often make up these fictional stories then unfairly paint an entire community in a false way. That’s very much what actual Elitist people do themselves, then again over the years I always found you have an Elitist attitude. You…
  • (Quote) I find that’s how I play the revamped CE not the previous version. The old one rewarded you for changing tactics and thinking about what you are doing, there was a reason not to fly up to the CE and walk away from the computer. I played …
  • Bad idea but I do like another version. In the same way other ships transform let carriers or some carriers transform and gain a 3rd hangar slot with a loss of some weapon slots making them true carriers. (Front weapon loss if my choice). Although a…
  • This is one of the few revamps they got right. Most of the time I find the revamped systems and revamped TFO's worse then what they repalced. But this one was good, very good even.
  • (Quote) Jovian always makes me think of Jupiter. Though Jovian can mean Saturn or Jupiter. The Jovian run was a route in the Sol system between Jupiter and Saturn. Not sure what you mean by Jovian = Mars. Jovian = Big Gas Giants doesn't it?.

    It was only there for some players or in some cases only on some characters, there was some sort of bug. I never had it for example.
  • (Quote) Did you have mines from players turned on. Could they have been planting a mine field to ambush the NPC spawn point and you couldn't see it as you didn't change the settings?

    Carriers are seen as cool and people like recreatin…
  • (Quote) Just recently I did something kind of similar. It looks like if 4 people park the ships in just the right spot they can close 100% of the green portals leaving the 5th person to float around or go AFK. I now ignore the orange portals as I…
  • (Quote) Carriers can do pretty good damage with the right build. Take a look at https://www.sto-league.com/a-brief-guide-to-getting-the-most…
  • (Quote) While I agree with what you are saying there is more to it then that and from a player point of view there seems or at least it feels like there is a problem with bug reporting and QA.

    Some examples this bug has been going on …
  • Confirmed and not just Transwarp coils all Transwarp including the core inbuilt ones and the extra's from other sources. Almost always changing zones unsticks it. This has been happening for over a year now. As with the poster above I pick a transwa…
  • For some reason they missed it off the PC this year. That or they did something silly like only had it on for a few hours so half the player base never got to expreince it. Wouldn't be the first-time the Devs forgot what a time zone is and that many…
  • Have the same problem on the PC as well and have heard of plenty of others.
  • (Quote) My thinking is that would make create some real teamwork unlike the current version that is completely lacking in player engagement and teamwork. It would be kind of like the great original NWS where we had to protect the NPC not like the…

  • (Quote) If they add it to the regular list I would hope that means they do and Adv/Elite version. I could see there being a lot of fun to had in an Adv or Elite version.

    Not keen on the normal version myself, like others have said it …

  • Have this a fair few times as well. Seems to happen randomly. If you get luck and find some loot to pick up that sometimes breaks it.
  • If you mean on map move then its a major bug in the game that has been going on for a while. There is a decent chance on moving maps you will get kicked out the game with a server timeout
  • Just hope Synth Wave has an Adv/Elite version as I don't find the basic version worth while to play as its just an AFK fest with nothing to do.
  • It’s a personal preference thing but when I do this I start with trying to work out how many heavy turrets can be used together. Then build around heavy turrets first filling in the gaps with basic turrets.

    Its not ideal but you can put in a support ticket asking for a refund due to the missing item which they will most likely refuse then ask for a part Zen refund for the missing item which they should provide. If they refuse again in…
  • More concerned about the false advertising on that pack. Half a year later they still list Universal console Reinforcing Squadrons in the list which was the entire reason I brought the pack. When you buy the pack the console which is listed is never…
  • (Quote) Which is the problem. That’s not fair. I don’t do that because
    A: my ship is to slow before its even turned in the right direction the Escort has done the task
    B: as an Engineer many of the optional are preferred to be done by…
  • (Quote) Very often I run oddball setups and very often don’t contribute to the group in a traditional way. But I do contribute to the group indirectly which in your system would punish me.

    Bringing up Seaofsorrows. When we team up in …
  • (Quote) That’s the flaw in your system. I don’t want to get grouped up with people with the same playstyle. Well balanced good groups are made up of different playstyles. You are setting up an honor based system that only benefits and works for t…
  • (Quote) Unless I missed a change the Neutronic Mortar object is much bigger then the Quantum Mortars.
