That and the inefficient patch system this game uses that forces me to use upwards of 5GB per week patching the game and its maps. No other MMO overwrites giant texture archives as frequently as STO, because major FUBARs aside, any programmer or sub-version controller would freeze the 'static assets' early in the game's lifetime and concentrate on patching scripts (which are tiny) exclusively.
And I understand that aspect of things. But what I'd hope to deliver in RDF is not "Starbase GRIND!"

What I'd hope to deliver is more like "I'm gonna run some STFs for MACO/Omega Force gear and I'll donate all the Dilithium to the Starbase. Anyone wanna join?"

Or even "Hey all! Great day today. Let me tell you about it! BTW, who wants to run some PvP with me?"

I want RDF to have a casual atmosphere to it. Will we work on the Starbase? Yes. Will we beat our brains out over it? NO! Well...not unless you want to. lol.

That's the beauty of our fleet: you don't have to do anything. Nothing's required of you to maintain your status with RDF. Just get on, play, and have a good time in whichever way you see fit.
