Shard maintenance every Thursday. Don't read too much into it.

I'm not reading into it at all, just saying they'll either do something or they won't.

Not really, you cant do that since the tour mission drop itself when the hour expire, so thats not why this was added. I think is more of a subtle message in the line of "In your face so f**k off !" towards the players. However its a good thing, at atleas now we know how things are between Cryptic and players.

Well then I will have to agree with you, though not so subtle. I haven't really looked that much into the tour, I have enough EC for my needs even though I am a tad poor at making it.

I found your sentence quite epic, so i've put it in my sig if you don't mind... A bit modified, but still applyable.

Yes the "players " are actually very pleased and hope they continue to make it difficult on the exploiters

If your not going to do the tour just because you cant exploit it and make the amount you feel is acceptable that is your choice

Yes, all 5 of them, according to this thread.


EDIT: Or is that 2

Two words: LIGHT BULB!

Cryptic, with this questionable workaround (as opposed to a proper fix) you're IMHO kicking practically every player in the testes/ovaries just to make sure you hit the naughty ones.
Personally I was glad to get about 1.5M EC with TtU, which was usually gone the next few minutes while doing shopping for our small (but hard working) T3 fleet. It was a great help to keep things going, now it isn't worth the effort any more. Shame.

Another itch: We got some slick ships through Risa (for which I'm grateful!), which were originally supposed to be racing ships according to the description if I'm not mistaken. Throw in the the mix, say, a couple of [COI] [SSR] [SSS] cores... To me that looks more like a pitch to an expansion of some sort.

I'm wondering: Why basically decapitate the only speed event in the game at such a time? Is there even a plan?

I dont think anything will come of it more then the chel gret the risian vette is just another escort in the game nothing more then that.

If cryptic has something planned for the vettes id think they would be introducing a whole new class of ships and have special events tailored around them.

But i highly doubt this will happen but we can hope right?
