I read that lockboxes were not going away so I'm going to ignore everything positive in that article and repeat my dissatisfaction with them.

*genuine, thunderous applause*

Well done Dan. Thanks for getting us back in the loop and giving us lots of great stuff to look forward to. To you and the rest of the team at STO, awesome job, and keep up the good work guys. :)

Awesome! Eagerly anticipating the KDF and Fed starbases. Tempted to play on a KDF one more, the fireplace looks so cozy :D

Wonder what the next fleet holdings are down the road. Perhaps Research Outposts and small colonies? :)

*EDIT* Time to try to see Morn talk for once... if I do, I will just explode.

This statement concerns me. Isnt there going to be 3-4 months between S6 and 7? If the Spotlight rewards are *truly* coming "shortly" after S6's release, why even mention S7 which is several months away? Is "shortly" just PR for "sometime before S7" or what?

While most of the article sounded great, this didn't:


"As far as lockboxes go, we have heard the feedback loud and clear and have already started to make adjustments to improve the way players can win those rare and exciting limited-time ships, such as the JemíHadar Attack Ship. While you will still see lockboxes in the future, we are making improvements to add more rewards and excitement when opening up new boxes in the future. This also will go hand in hand with an overhaul of the LOBI store. "
I stopped playing because of lockboxes, and if they're not going away, I doubt I'm coming back. Very disappointing, tbh, as I was hoping there would be an announcement about them being done away with. I hope the community here continues to voice their disdain for these dreadful cash grab lottery boxes and forces Cryptic to remove them permanently.
