Another words, for countless hours spend in making them, we burn through them in a matter of a couple of hours at most.
I would much rather see these resources spent elsewhere rather than FE. For example, redo/re polish fleet actions, more STFs, open PvP zone(s) & more PvP content in general, fleet star bases, etc.
We need a better foundation for content for what we would do on a regular basis, or content which provides high replay value, then throw in a couple of FE in a year just to do something different.
FE shouldn't(and won't) be primary content of STO. You may disagree with that, but at the end of the day, this is an MMO. Not a single player in depth story arch. It COULD be that way, but what would be the point? You would play them, stop, and not come back until another FE is released. If Cryptic wants to keep people playing, it's not going to happen via FE, it'll be by other means.
IMO, two FE in a year is enough, provided that we get other content also.
This guy wins. I agree with everything he said, and he is right, FEs are nice and all, but with no replay value, they wont help the state of the game. Open PvP, Fleet Starbases, and other content that has replay value should be where Cryptic spends ALL their time on right now....
However, I'm still excited for the FE, even if its not the best choice of content development time
