Then keep your fingers crossed that they are planning for a major hardware upgrade....

Ahh gotcha. when I saw "Super Group" I thought an actually group (hence STF) I wasnt thinking of fleet.

Ok I can completely agree with all of that then since not everyone is going to want to start a Fleet, and Zone chat is basically spamalot anyways

Well, hopefully that'll be how it stays in STO, particularly when the next FE comes out since the Enterprise-F is going to be featured, though I'm not sure how F2P brings in revenue when well, it's F2P.

I hope you're right, cause right now, this is just not sitting well with me.

I'm thinking there are probably not going to be any more C-Store Sales from now on...

Hope They give us a few more Q weekends though.

I sense no more C-Store sales. Wish I knew this, I would've bought the Dreadnought had I known this was going to happen.

I don't see the C-Store sales stopping we have them in CO the same time they're held here in STO.

yeah, I realized what you were saying after I posted that. I edited it to clarify.

a) perfect world are pros at this stuff - if you check out their site, they have quite a few MMOs running
b) the season 4 "code merge" was a huge performance upgrade to our core server technology
c) more hardware is on the way

Well, all I can say is that I hope that it stays that way, and again, I hope missions and FE's are kept OUT of the C-Store, that's one of the reasons why I dreaded this game going F2P.

Yeah, I don't think they've ever had a sale in one and not in the other. They have all the same sales more or less. Like when STO has a 50% off costumes or ships sale, CO has a 50% off travel powers or transformation devices sale.
