You start your career off as a simple farmer... then you launch yourself into a galaxy filled with intrigue, power plays, and high stakes games of interstellar conflict, as your career careens upwards onto your final destination ... a level capped Dilithium and Fleet Mark Farmer!
Maybe instead of refreshing the main page go listen to the interview and discuss that, I know people are excited but this thread was to highlight Kestrel's interview (and it had some great info, the part about making the Romulan content before JJ trek and the reply from CBS I thought was funny and something I wondered about).
Show some respect to the lead writer and stop acting like spoiled children yelling "give me now!" in an unrelated thread, the scimitar blog will come soon so have some patience.
As a writer myself, specifically one wanting to go into game design storyboarding, I sympathize with Kestrel, I really do. However, having also studied marketing, I know that this is a major slap in Kestrel's face.
The Scimitar is something a LOT of people are excited about (myself included) and people are starting to get rabid over it. Cryptic is HORRIBLE about communication and keeping their deadlines, so they have a bad rep for saying one thing and not delivering on it. So when we were told "Scimitar info by the end of June!" and they wait to the last possible second to be truthful on that, it rubs the playerbase the wrong way. And now when we're promised detailed specs on Monday, and these blogs are usually up by mid-day, and we get something like this instead...players don't care. We want what we're excited about and what we're promised.
It doesn't MATTER what the interview was about. This isn't what people want and what we DO want and what we were promised is delayed and delayed and delayed. It's just bad marketing and, sadly, this is unfortunate for Kestrel, who has done EXTREMELY good work and is rightly proud of it. The marketing team, however, has really screwed her over by putting this up TODAY and BEFORE the Scimitar blog. It's really not fair to her.
how about you dont try to mod peoples wants and excitement , one thing i learned long ago with work and life is if you dont speak up you dont get what you want , Cryptic is a great company but they cant read minds just the chat
and side note who says we havent already and still waiting around for a long time
