I smell another gigantic ressource annhilation coming up with the new reputation system. I sincerely hope it does not require either dilithium or doffs to advance in reputation.

Oh and disappoint that Foundry gets no love from the Reputation System, i just finally want an in-game reason to PLAY Foundry and get some epic Loot out of it.
Be that a *Lobi* Store for Foundry kind of thing, or through the Rep System...

I am surprised that Season 7 is already next month, with the bigger team size will we get more Seasons per Year again?
I expected it to hit somewhere around 12/2012 01/2013 to be honest...
if so when can we expect Season 8? more like 3 or more like 6 months after S7?
I hope that we can upgrade our present ships to tier 6. But as i know the devs, they will make them way better than the ships we already have so we "have" to buy them to keep competitive. On the other hand Fleet ships (Fleet tier 5) are not even availlable until then...

In my opinion for every played foundry mission a player should have the chance to get a few Lobi crystals.

I am surprised myself that Season 7 will be released in november, that's a unanticipated pleasure, but i have learned not to expect too much from cryptic. So i won't be dissappointed too heavy.

Thank you for reading.

I was planning on buying a couple of more C-Store ships soon. Unless you're willing to tell me that there will absolutely not ever be any T6 ships, I think I'll stick with what I've got.

Also, grinding anything is not fun. It is not fun at all.

Good news for you, this tweet from Kestrel (writer at Cryptic Studios) mentions recording sessions with Eric Newsome, the guy who voices Obisek.

Grinds are their focus now

If we gain ranks in the Romulan Reputation, then will it affect the Romulan FE series and other Romulan episodes with dialogue? I see two possible scenarios, our reputation is only based on the Romulan Colony and the rest of the Romulans don't know or care about what we do there or our reputation is with all Romulans and their might be some dialogue changes or scenarios where Romulan soldiers are willing to let us pass without incident since we helped a bunch of Romulans.

There are defintely things to worry about in this latest one.
  • No PVP questions answered
  • The process on T6 ships being undisclosed, oh by the way if they're Zen only you can shut the game down right now. 1 tier of Pure Zen hell has been bad enough. 2 will make most people flee en masse.
  • The Revelation of a new Admiral rank. This raises alot of concerns because a sizeable amount of people didnt even want Admiral in. Will we get a skill reset when this change occurs? How will new points be determined?
  • The T6 ships are they going to be entirely new designs? Bringing Back older ones? How will T6 compare to fleet?
  • The above almost guarntees Mk 13 and 14 gear I cant see more ships being added without higher gear being available. How will that be handled?
  • Will Bridge Officers be expanded to allow the extra level of content coming up or will we be forced to buy 4+ bridge officer slots to properly field that backup ship?

Now November is a nice thing to see i entered mid season so i'm glad to see one's closer at hand. But I hope these questions and more get answered in the upcoming weeks. I'm juist BARELY there on a fleet ship. The thought of having to grind even more for a new T6 ship is...well. Tbh i Play C9 which while a grind type of game has a very fun combat system. STO's is fun but there are far less direct rewards in this game compared to C9 Pay 2 Win=Pay 2 Fail. and i'll be out. C9 at least rewards its players for doing well rather than hinder them.
