Make crew loss permanent until replenished at ESD with reinforcements
 
Anybody like this idea?

I think we had this. I distinctly recall busting my chops getting back to Sierra 39 to buy more crew for extortionate prices because without crew I was being treated like Loki when the Hulk picked him up.

I don't think that is a good idea. There are time when I just go back to ESD to stock up (easy with transwarp) and get "stuck" in a fleet of ships that I CAN'T even approach the starbase. Can you imagine when you make it a requirement?

What's the point of having a sickbay on your ship?

Permanent Crew Loss was the original idea: you had to return to a Starbase and buy new Crew. It was never implemented, and the way the game is now most people don't like needing to return to a Starbase for anything - which is why so many functions are now on Ships. People hate unnecessary travel time.

Crew are not "disposable" you are thinking of torpedoes

we already have ship "injuries," isn't that enough?

dilbart 04-09-2013 11:55 AM

Hmm, maybe make it Elite only. Like injuries.

dilbart 04-09-2013 11:56 AM

Normal: no penalties
Advanced: injuries
Elite: injuries + crew loss

NO
 
**** this is actually the worst idea I have ever heard of! Carrier ships lose all of their crew well before most STFs end, so you would likely be left fighting Dontra or a Cube with no hull regeneration, just buffs.

If you have to go all the way to a starbase to get new crew, it would become increasingly tedious. And what about the existing consoles that help crew regeneration? They would just disappear.

DO NOT IMPLEMENT THIS. LOL.
