I read that with Season 8 we could get the Rank of Admiral. Will there be a new free ship Token? and what about the Article on the STO wiki that said we could control up to 5 Ships in our active list? Does that mean i get to fly 5 ships at the same tine (1 directly and 4 as pets). I think that would be weird in Mission Replays and which ships should that be?
If i am a f2p Player i usually have only the free ships from Lt . to Vice admiral and the low level ships with their low level shields and weapons would be useless against the upcoming LVL 51-60 Enemies. If they still have the itemsof course. I upgraded all my ships as soon as i got them and then stripped them of shields and weapons to use those on my newer ship because they were still slightly better as the weapons the ship came with.

So back to the f2P users. What about those who dont have much money to buy a C-store ship or the time to properly work for fleet ships (and that also includes money) they didnt get a new ship since level 40, even the fleet ships are riddicolously stronger. They also wont stand a chance against the new enemies. I wished that there were more upper level Weapons and Items for free. Up to Rear admiral STO is really fun but then its all about PvE and Sets, Mining and Reputation. All activities that take a lot of time and experience. I love STO but i have a lmited timeframe to play every month so it would take me several months to get to Tier 5 in a Reputation system. And only if i played just the reputation missions nothing else. Besides i dont really know what to do with the rep. system missions and how to get the items.

So what will the Admiral Rank bring?

Unless they just came out last night there are no plans currently to increase the level cap.

That is old information regarding Season 8.


When they first started tossing out hints of what they wanted to do with Season 8 and 9, they hinted they like to increase the cap to Level 60 / Fleet Admiral, where they would like us to command 5 ships. But they also said later on that they are postponing raising the cap, because they haven't found a system they liked that would be fair to everyone. Because they know people would be ready to tar and feather them if their many Tier-5 C-store ship purchases were now worthless.
NO to ARC!

Season 9.5 = STO's NGE is Here! Welcome to the Grind!

New Crafting = It's not Crafting, is an overblown Reputation System.

Good to know. but the information is not that old. the article got added to the "player ranks" page way after the possible ranks got listed. I thing around the beginning of season 7.
And if its true that cryptic have said that about the ranks and ships why did they cancel it after that. Or the other way around why add false informations to the site and better why not remove it if its not true.

Was talking more about a link to a Cryptic article, since the Wiki can be misleading.

I dont know about the article i just know about that from the wiki page. I assumed or hoped it would be true. Although i do not know how that with the ships would work (if i equip all my ships with MkXI weapons na shields PvE wouldnt be fun anymore. i would prefer if they were like the photonik Fleet. Not disappearing but destroyable (for that mission of course). They would be back on the next map and if i have 5 ships instead of 2 like the photonic that would make a difference. Though i have to consider that three of those ships are weaker than a galor (if i am a tac officer and only fly escorts)

But we are stuck with the Vice admiral Rank for quite a while now and there were always rumours about the ranks so i thought maybe this time they really did make new ranks. But as i said New ranks and new enemies would demand a new ship to keep up with the game. and a new ship to keep up with LVL 60 enemies would be stronger as the c-store ships (it has to be) so they would need to improve those too. Lot of work
