Interesting... we can now leave comments about individual blog entries? Curious; I wonder why that was implemented.

This is not new information and seems like an attempt to distract from the forum changes.

Never going to distract us from the EPIC fail you just did with the forums....

So is this gonna be useful for level 50 characters, or totally pointless for them like the Red Alerts are?

dStahl talked about trying to add better playr/dev interaction to the communication channels they're currently using. Since they're internally really liking this whole "dev blog" thing, it makes a certain amount of sense to enable comments there, instead of dragging the conversation to the forums.

So you're recycling Borg Red Alerts with new enemies... and it's taking you so long to put this out why?

From my understanding all fleetmates regardless of level can join these (they're boosted to level 50 for the duration of the event) and the better you do the more Fleet Marks are given out. Fleet Marks are essential for starbase upgrades (note that these starbase challenges are not the sole method of obtaining said Fleet Marks).

Probably because these involve defending our fleet's starbase, and starbases havent been released yet. But thats just a *wild* guess.
