And that stuff dstahl talked about territory control being in the works is actually.... DUN DUN DUN, in long term discussion!

Not even a smidgen of coding has been done, so predictable.

In the Engineering Report: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...85#post3361885

It appears that Cryptic has decided to finally integrate in-game voice communication! That should make it easier to even enable voice comm in PuGs (depending on how clunky they will make the interface ) and "level the playing field" if people wish to do so.

Let's just hope that, once this becomes realized, the jack-asses of the world don't ruin it by bypassing profanity filters and forcing Cryptic to disable it again.

BTW, there is more in the Engineering Report (PvP related):
  • Nuking Ker'rat (if t his worries or pleases you, see InertiaCreeps thread on the topic: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...50#post3362250)
  • Adding open PVP melee areas to social maps (Andoria, Vulcan, Qo'noS, Rura Penthe)
  • Repurposing some Feature Episode maps as new PVP maps

Wanna go through the Engineering Reports how, say "Sector Space Revamp" has evolved through the ERs?

That doesn't say much except it got a face lift. It's great that it looks good but that's about it for now.

Long Term
Designs and features being considered for updates further in the future
  • Converting First Officer to Playable Captain
  • Fleet Starbases
  • Fleet Action Updates
  • More Fleet Actions
  • More PVP Maps
  • More iconic locations such as Starfleet Academy, Rura Penthe etc...
  • Improved Social Planets with social gameplay
  • More Minigames
  • More parts for AlienGen
  • Ability to construct new ships at Starbases
  • Territory Control Game <------ This is the only thing that's conclusive
  • Customizable ship interiors
  • Deepspace Exploration Concept
  • Additional Playable Factions (Romulan, Cardassian...)
  • More Species (Androids, Aenar, Talaxian, Hologram species)
  • Improving Hair and Cloth tech


Unfortunately I was wrong with my earlier comment. They aren't even actively talking about it. It's just being considered! Somehow I get the feeling that DStahl and I were thinking different things when I was asking about meaningful territory control, and his response being that it's slated for Season 5.

Cause y'know months ago folks were asking for new PvP maps and the result was... PvP tourneys (which never happened). Asking for territory control results in... possibly new PvP maps?

Don't get me wrong though. New PVP maps is still great and all, but there does seem to be a serious breakdown in communications between the community and the devs.
