sweet read and i perfectly understand the level-25 move for the klingons, it was to make sure any klingon player could play at the more interesting levels, at least unto more content was added, along with the KDF tutorial
still, can't wait for all this stuff man i wish i could make time go faster...
*sigh* Basically "All the things we've been needing to add to the KDF like ship costumes and outfits that you've all been lacking, will soon be available, in the C-store."
'Q: kirian_darkstar: When are Klingons going to get proper hair? (See Captain Klaa from STV)
A: That is a great hairstyle! Adding more hair and accessory options for the KDF players is definitely on our radar as something that will be one of our upcoming micro-transactions once we launch F2P (and fill our open character art job opening).'
I found this to be a bit of a cheek, and while the rest of the news was brilliant, I find this a bit annoying. Its reaching a point where anything that should have been in since the start, that people have been complaining about since the start and should never have been done in the first place, will be fixed, eg. Klingons having one hair style repeated over and over again (dreadlocks). But you have to pay for it.
Other than that, awesome stuff. Especially the skill tree revamp and the UI upgrades.
: Basically, we no longer plan to sell playable species when we go F2P (and will most likely stop selling them prior as well). Premium playable species such as Liberated Borg, Caitians, Klingon Fed, and Joined Trill will not be sold but will instead remain premium rewards for either lifetime membership, veteran rewards, or unlocked via some other in game mechanism. In addition, some species such as Fed Ferengi, Rigelian, Tellarite, and Pakled will become free additional default species. If we introduce new species in the future, they will most likely be tied to unlocking some achievement or special reward in game, but the details are TBD.
More a curiousity than anything else, but I don't see a reason for this. It always seemed to me that additional playable species were a great thing to sell in the C-Store. What am I missing?
