Plus our thoughts on one of the biggest challenges currently facing the game, and why now has to be the time these issues are addressed!

NEWS:

First, it’ll be a compact episode this week, sorry!

We had planned to have another “Foundry Files” segment for you to chew on, but the Foundry has been eating missions and causing a LOT of crash issues, so it’s been taken offline. Until it’s stable again, our team can’t deliver the goods!

Perfect World Acquisition is FINALIZED!

Ask Cryptic – August Edition

  • Dates (Sept/October before we see anything new)

    • Additional comment from Dan re: timelines, delays: “… we are absolutely learning from the code merge that was Season 4 and I’m being very vocal about how much it has cost STO and how we can avoid it in the future.”
    • Aug 25th and Sept 22nd – next “big” release dates.
  • T2 Nova / Pay-to-Win (Not seen as an issue by Cryptic… but totally is!)

  • Acquiring the Ent F = Mission Reward for completing “a Fleet Action series”
  • Space skill update coming in September, will combine T5 stupidity.
  • Custom kits confirmed! (Late S4, or Early S5)
  • Cross Faction STFs coming in September! (big boon to the underpopulated KDF side)

JHeinig ECONOMY MATHS us

  • Per the Ask Cryptic… This ‘unified currency’ may be implemented as early as September.

Massively hands out some solid info on the upcoming Borg events

  • Persistent ground combat areas, with weekly missions (Orion or Gorn homeworlds?)
  • Stage 3 is the STF Revamp releases.
    • This will include new STF queues, including cross-faction teaming.
  • Stage 4 = Into The Hive

Updated Defiant – QUAD CANNONS

Not to be outdone… the KDF gets the same!
