        • Marauding Report

Speaking of Banks and EC, is it possible to get "Deposit All" and "Withdraw All" for Account Banks?

Wait wait wait, so this patch is for today for Tribble. But there was a patch on Tribble on the 17th? Are both of these going live this week on holodeck, or are all of the changes on the 17th being removed and not being added?

The way its been in the past is - if there are multiple trib patches in a week, Holodeck will get one big patch that incorporates them all.

Was anything done to address the funky ranomization of purchased doffs from the fleet doff vendor? I have bought over 800 so far and not one has been a sensor officer. I understand random means random, but I don't think something is working quite right if ground and space warfare officers randomly drop 60% of the time and security officers drop 1% and sensor officers NEVER drop.

That does not sound random. That sounds rigged to make project inputs impossible to obtain without buying doff packs.

Well that's fine, as long as the giant white splotches go away and keep my computer from trying to vomit on itself when I look at them.

Patches are additive. This build contains all the updates the previous one did.

# 9 random fleet doff selection

As I understand it the selection of doffs is random, but because the underlying pool from which doffs are randomly selected is not equally distributed over all types, the types that are overrepresented in the pool, will also be overrepresented in the final drops.
In this case the pool contains little or no sensor/security officers and an abundance of warfare officers; this imbalance will also be reflected in a (sufficiently large) random selection.

The pool was probably compiled manually with the emphasis on new types like the warfare specialists and doffs of the pre-existing types just thrown into the pool to ensure there s enough useless stuff in there.. I suspect the pool used for the fleet vendor uses only a small subset of the doff's available through the pre-existing channels, certainly if it was compiled manually..

All the above quoted change does is DECREASE the chance to crit on those 5 reports. I don't see how that is a positive change at all... Why not just make it like the Academy Recruitment missions where you have a slight chance to crit and immense chance at success and not require a DOFF at all, They are already set like them where you can't fail them, and making all of them use DOFFs that REQUIRE Success (thereby negating all Crit traits as Success takes precedence over Crit) you might as well just make them not use DOFFs and have set chances
