# 1 Cheers for Season 5!
11-30-2011, 12:39 PM
Am I the only one happy about S5 coming? I'm very excited. I didn't think we'd see S5 this soon.

I've leveled a character to VA on tribble, so I know what's coming, and I'm excited for all of this to come to Holodeck. I see Season 5 as a really big update to the game, bigger even than Season 4! I'm excited about Season 5 and the great new additions to the game. Anyone else?

I just logged off STO, and the launcher popped up and is downloading a 1.4 gig patch

I would be if S4 was finished and S5 was about what it was supposed to be about (fleets, pvp...)

Some of it will be, the Doff system is a great long term addition even if it doesn't immediately add much in the way of playable content but the rest of it is underwhelming, especially since on of the truly new peices of content is so heavily restricted (Defera invasion).

Difference between Series and Seasons, they are not connected.

This is Season 5 because the powers that be deemed it so: http://startrekonline.com/node/2695
Yeah, except a lot of the "Season 5" stuff was supposed to come with S4, including the next FE.

^ nothing is ever "finished" in an MMO, even these "Seasons"

I look at the next season as a continuation from the previous season.

That doesn't quite work, you see, as several peices of content, stated to come during S4, didn't materialise and now some of it is coming with S5 and what was originally going to be S5 is gone. A season can be finished when paritcular update goals are set out and met. Whats happened here is certain goals were set, then ignored, so in that respect, S4 has barely been started on, even after all this time.

What I'm saying is, the devs can call it what they want, all we're getting is most of S4 but they're dressing it up so they can say they got a major update out in a certain timeframe, while trying to hide the massive c**k up that was S4.

We kind of went over the mechanics of this with the devs around late September/early October. The season is merely a time period, and what happens during that season is part of it. It just happens that season 4 was the season of little to nothing.
