I'm no expert. But why does a different engineering room, captains quarters or crew deck require a redesign of how ship functions work? If I want to have a different engineering room on my ship I don't expect increased functionality just a different design.
I always wanted a warp core with 3 power couplings for my galaxy-x ;-)
Interview gammer for that group is terrible. 90% of the material listed as questions was so garbled it made no sense. The remaining 10% was just asking the same question in multiple ways. Future recommendations.... Don't talk to that group Mr. Stahl.
Actually the questions were fine, shame you didnt see them for what they were. This interviewer wasnt a fanboi. He asked the tough questions and Dan side stepped the largest majority of them.
Nothing wrong with the Interviewer.
A lot wrong with the interviewee, what Dan stated was this simply "No Comment"

why? Cause he asked real questions that need real answers. Understand something gang, that person who asked the questions has been around a bit, they knew some of the BS/Whitewash/Smoke and mirrors that Cryptic has pulled in the past. Unlike other interviewers who ask the "fluffy" questions, he lobbed serious questions, which Dan avoided.

Just like the Captain's Table

Exactly. Dan avoids the tough questions. plan and simple. That is fine if he wants to do that, but understand team, when dan left we had hoped things would of gotten done. If he made the promises or not his first go around with STO, he is the EP, and like that or not he is the person responsible. I stop worrying over the dev's, you want someone to hold accountable for the butchered state of the game, Gozer stated it best. Dan and Jack both have to ok any changes.
that is just plain and simple fact. so any changes you do not like, is not a dev fault team. IT IS the fault of the EP and CEO who approved it, that is their job, whom we pay as subscribers.
bad questions (i facepalmed at least 3 times because it wasn't even proper english and just made no sense and was repeating the same question again and again)
all i thought while reading the questions was that this person had not played STO in at least 6 - 12 months.
lets put all the info of this interview together:
- Fleetbases = Season 6
- No, this is not Bridge Commander
- teaming works as intended (no surprise... if you want a proper answer ask if we can have a FED+KDF team up mechanic for the Defera Event, Borg Red Alerts and have FED+KDF join the same Fleet please... dStahl probably had no idea what the interviewer was even getting at here *sigh*)
- Account Bank will happen *yay* (but we knew that already, and again no Details on it)
- new PvP mission ( probably the Horde mode one Gozer is working on )
The interview sucked because they were asking Dan the same questions every other interviewer has been asking him since he got back. Ive seen these questions asked over and over so i wasnt surprised the anwsers were consistant with what ive seen in the past.
Second question is about fleet spin offs and how this giant fleets can work on their starbases...who cares? The answer to this question is relevant for less then ten fleets...What do they expect? That Cryptic is focusing all menpower to make it happen, that two different fleets could work on one space station? Are they serious? There are much more important things to do...
Third question: fleets and mimimimimimimimim...
It`s okay for me not always ask for the topics you get thrown, but why not do some questions about starbases? DStahl is giving hints all the time (and this is not the first interview in this manner) but all questions are about fleets+mimimim, klingons+mimimimim and bank/inventar to small-mimimimimi....
Will there be different parts for starbases?
Which materials will it need?
Will we have to harvest those materials or will we get it as reward for fleet missions?
What could be done on a starbase?
How could they be attacked?
Will it have defense weapons?
Will there be any upkeep costs?
How much time will we need to build a starbase?
Will there be different rooms?
Will we be able to outfit those rooms?
How can we attack an other starbase?
Will they be instanced?
Will we be able to pick a location for our starbases?
