I also don't have a problem with F2P having access to tribble, I have a problem of broken promises. The more people that test the better the results for new game content. I would love to see this changed to a open window for LTS and gold players before everyone else getting into tribble.
Incase you hadn't notice but what you just mention happen it was only for gold & LTS and now it is open up for every one.

And I do not remember anywhere was it said that tribble was going to be a gold/LTS thing only, as I recall things were mention but were subjected to change, well it happen this way so get over it already and move on.

No kidding. I've been playing over a year now and Tribble server has always been open to everybody, including silver members like myself.

It wasn't until this September 20, 2013 http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...d.php?t=858911

Additionally, when Tribble is brought back up, only Gold Members will be able to log into the server for the time being.
The restriction to only allow gold/LTS members access to Tribble was only temporary. Now it is open for everybody again.

I dont remember them ever saying that quite frankly, and even if it was suggested it never happened so its not relevant what they planned to do, only what we got but whatever it was golds have had access to tribble exclusively for the last month. we are less than 2 weeks away from season 8 and we need everyone's to be testing the content so we need silvers to help in the final bug crunch and to let everyone have a shot at the test weekend.

when season 9 rolls around, golds will more than likely, according to geko, get first access again.

so what's the problem? golds get something, and everyone gets to bug hunt.

Greetings fellow gold/silver captains!

I am a LTS player. With that being said, I welcome silver players to and WANT silver players to log onto tribble prior to season launches or major game updates.

As stated I have paid for a Life Time Account to Star Trek Online. However, there are non sub players who have put far more money into STO than I have. Who am I really, as just a player in the game, to dictate who would have access to test content before it is released live?

The last time I checked, we all agreed to Cryuptics/PWE's ToS when we signed up and downloaded STO to play.

As far as the Tribble server, there are moments that it is open to Gold players, and moments it's open to ALL players. Also, when LoR launched, silver players had to wait before allowed access to the new content, even though they still had access to Tribble.

I completely agree with everything you said, Chad. You summed it up perfectly.

Am I not getting a collectible Tribble for Season 8?

Something some Silver players don't realize is that, in the beginning at least, there were enough LT Subscriptions to give STO a shot of adrenaline financially. That money has gone to making many improvements to the game that we can now enjoy.

If it were not for the original LTSers, monthly subscribers and new LTSers, this game would not have the incoming cash flow to develop anything.

Having said that, though, I personally think Tribble is redundant (at least in some respects). As someone on page 2 posted, there have been numerous times when bugs have been reported by the people on Tribble, only to have those bugs pushed out onto Holodeck anyway, knowing full-well that there were serious issues that could (and have in some cases) affected gameplay for the general member base. Pushing bugged content out as has been done in the past takes a bad situation on Tribble and only magnifies it when said content is uploaded onto Holodeck and its much larger user base.

Why? All because of some deadline.

Personally, I'd rather have an update delayed if that delay was for a constructive reason. Lately, I see more and more bugs being passed from Tribble to Holodeck, which cause problems, and those problems could have easily been rectified while still on Tribble.

Keeping problems on the Tribble server, isolating and fixing them while still there, IMO, is more efficient than trying damage control on the Holodeck server with most of the players base up in arms concerning the latest installment of bugged content. At least on Tribble, the devs don't have the sense of urgency as with getting things done on Holodeck when something goes wrong. All they have to deal with on Tribble is the corporate execs breathing down their necks about getting the next Season being pushed onto Holodeck.

I would love to see a corporate exec do a dev's job.
