tribble is down for a extended maintance. For now if you want to test anything they opened up Redshirt for that.
Tribble is being worked on for a major game content update. i been checking the forums and it seems like its down for afew days.
Redshirt is the new Tribble. Tribble will probably end up a beta-server. Look in the Tribble Forums for last week.
Basically Nothing...I"m not sure why they had to wait until Today to fix the smallest 40 meg patch in the world. I know i consider the BoP pets a 'huge priority' on my list of things that really need to be fixed.
Release Notes - September 20, 2011
Resolved an AI issue on carrier BoP pets, so that they will get new targets after an existing target is killed.
Resolved the issue in the foundry that was causing "Internal Genesis System error generating map " errors.
General Stability Updates.
So I take it the TOS Retro Phasers are being swept under the radar then.. It's been pointed out that the 'fix' didn't 'fix' them, so I would have thought that the first opportunity to fix the fix, would have been a good time to fix the fix so that it's fixed.
