# 1 Transwarp Powers need Fixing.
08-07-2010, 12:17 AM
== 08/31/10 - It appears as though they fixed the Transwarp Cooldown so that they continue to count down while docked/on the ground. Thank you Cryptic! ==

The Transwarp to Earth Spacedock Captain Power Shares a 30 minute cool down with the Diplomatic Power Transwarp to Starbase K7 (and I'll bet with the other Diplo TWs I don't have yet). That 30 minutes only ticks down while you're in your ship. If you TW in and dock, you could spend hours on the ground, beam back to your ship, and still have 29m remaining on all your TWs. That seems gimped to me.

I'd like to see any one or more of the following improvements:

Allow the power's CD to recharge while docked/on the ground. The ship is in idle, it's warp coils should still be recharging.

Lower the shared Cooldown.

Keep the primary CD to 30m, but lower the shared system CD to less than that (10-20m).


Also, I'd like to request a TWarp Power to each Memory Alpha and the Omega Battle Group.

Updates: In post #7 I confirmed all three of the Diplo TW powers share the mutual CD, and now I can confirm (in post #40) that the Excelsior's nine TWs share CDs with all the rest.

That's thirteen powers that all share an unfortunately long, thirty-minute, CD. This is definitely gimped.


In that post I also comment on/request a fix for the nine new TWs sharing the same icon (they need to be different somehow.

Lastly, to confirm, I agree with people on the "story" element, that our ships have only one TW engine, so a shared CD is expected. That makes sense. But Cryptic needs to either A) Fix the Away-From-Ship doesn't Recharge the CD bug, and/or B) Reduce the CD from 30m to 5-15m. What's the point of having a TW Drive if I can fly across the galaxy and back before it finishes recharging just because I stopped for some donuts?

It's probably another cheap way to keep us stuck in sector space. They could fix it, but I think they choose not to. They're all about ****ing us off to no end in this regard.

The timer should tick down everywhere, even logged off. The various transwarp skills should not share a CD. This crap needs fix.

I'd just like them all to be on separate cooldowns. It'd make them much more rewarding to have in my opinion.

Lets keep this constructive,

however yes, the system is currently broken,

my sugestions is to have older TW CD, such as ESD, go down as your level increases. The shared cooldown should only be about 5-10 mins. Also, you should recieve the new Transwarp when you are at the level to access the sector missions. DS9 TW should open when you make captain. K7 when you reach Lt. Cmd, and there should be a momory aplha, that would open up at CMD.

Anyways thats my opinion.

I wish the original Sol TW should reset faster as you rank, as other powers sometimes do. That would be nice. The other TWs aren't available via standard rank, they are a reward only for Federation Diplomatic Corps ranking (Attache, Consol, Envoy, Ambassador). Now if they separated the CDs, it would be nice if those lowered as you ranked through the FDC... Of course that would mean that DS9 (the Ambassador rank power) would always have the highest CD.

I wonder... Is there a rank above Ambassador? (One quick Wiki scan later...) It appears the next rank would be "Ambassador-at-Large"... Hmmm.... Oh, and an Ambassador's title is commonly His/Her Excellency. Sweet! Now that would be cool to have.

I noticed that even though I've reached Ambassador, I'm still earning FDX (though for next rank it says n/a). It would be neat if they eventually added more unlockables... thee His/Her Excellency titles for example, more TWs (MemAlpha, BGO, future locations...), perhaps more alternate faction BOs (and/or Uncommon-Very Rare ones), more uniforms... Or even unlock a +1 character uniform slot for the existing Dilpomat Jacket. Anywho...

Actually, it does make sense for the various transwarp powers to share a cooldown. When you gain them, you're gaining additional destinations with your transwarp drive, not additional transwarp drives, and it takes 30 minutes for your Transwarp Drive to be ready for use again.
