Cool news about the spotlight foundry rewards. I'm looking forward to expanding the rewards given to players for playing UGC missions

Does the new Foundry rewards have anything to do with why its still off line?

"Some positive feedback about the new Tholian Lockbox"

Good thing you said some, as it was only some ;) There was the standard outrage that it was a lockbox, but the rewards were much improved (4 ships instead of 1, for starters)

Nice to see that the Foundry gets some love.

Don't rush into season 7 too soon though, there are still many bugs that needs to be fixes. It's astounding to see that the whole community is complaining about the broken exchange and that no member of the team is telling us what is about to be done or even if someone is working on that, with some sort of ETA. I don't think you realize how important it is for many of us. I see people complaining every time I read the zone chat on ESD.

And in the meantime, instead of fixing this important feature, the UI team is working on making the doff UI inefficient and barely useable - no one asked for that.

Season 6 brought many good and positive changes about content itself, but it still needs a lot of fixes, please don't forget to clean the mess before introducing more mess. :)

So, no mention about the hose job he gave pvp when he systemically and categorically denied every idea Gozer put forth to fix it? And now it sits to stagnate or get worse for another undefined time? I'd call that a very important State of Part of The Game which seems to have been omitted.

My feedback which I;m sure will be removed from the main site shortly:


I have to agree. No mention of all of the players having issues with just logging into the game. No mention of player after player reporting poor customer service received from the company. Moderation is non existent on the support forums with racism, bigotry and personal attacks abound while the moderators and staff turn a blind eye. I got proved to yesterday that the employee who is supposed to be in charge of the forums doesn't even know what the settings for the software. The in game item exchange has fallen to a very well know bug that's been known for for at least four months and now has gotten worse. And if you want to mention the foundry, how about mentioning that for many months many of us couldn't even access it? Pretty much an article full of fluff and just shows that Mr. Stahl is completely out of touch with his own game. How about a real and honest State of the Game that covers both the positives as well as acknowledging what's wrong and how your company is working towards fixing and/or addressing the issues?

I;m sitting here looking at the typos....

Yep, another PR fluff piece.

I may be able to log into the game without trouble, but I feel for those who can't.
