I'm confused by the blog.. is this only dailies, or are there normal adventure zone missions here as well?

You know,
with all that work that went into the Tholians ...
How about let us buy a Tholian captain race? or at least a doff? The animation and model work needs to be seen in more then a few combat missions.

Wicket idea .. Tholians ally with the Romulans in the long term... Presto new race and interest in a Romulan Faction...

The ground bits in the shows were quite a lot better than the ground missions in STO.

That said, we need SPACE missions to play with the Lockbox ships they want us to pay for, hint, hint.

How do you know there's going to be a Romulan lockbox? If they do make a playable faction, they can't really include ships in there.

I want to be positive about this, as new content is welcome - but the zergfest, mind numbing maps of Nukara and Defera tell me I have nothing to look forward to.

In fact, if it's as bad as either of those areas, it means I will be cut off from what will likely be the major source of Romulan Marks for S7.



Even worse, this is yet another zone where we will collect garbage ground loot worth little to nothing on the exchange or to vendors.


On top of all of that, I'm worried about how much my characters are going to lose in the conversion from current STF EDCs/Salvage/Tech to the new system of marks.

If the previous marks conversion is anything to go by, I think I should be very concerned.

Let's hope I'm wrong.

It will make Cryptic/PWE lots of money to spend on Neverwinter and other PWE projects while still leaving very little but boring grinds and dailies for STO.

You're worried ? I got almost 100 EDC's saved to equip a fleetship I'll buy whenever they get the KDF Fleet ship discount debacle straightened out.

Yeah, I really wish they'd move away from these "do the same thing over and over again" maps to more missions. They don't need to be Featured Episode quality missions, with new tech and new maps and voice acting and all that. Just write some stuff, and let us play it!

I get that new gameplay needs to have some sort of replayability factor, but some game systems are better at that than others. The STO repetitive grind is why I left for several months. Build better game systems that aren't as grindy, and things will be better.

Look at EVE - its game systems have tons of replayability, and its steady increase in subscribers shows that. I'm not saying STO should be turned into EVE, or a PvP free-for-all, but it needs some better PvE systems than "run around, kill things, repeat".

By "crystalline suit," do you mean what they look like normally, on Nukara? Because that's not a suit. That's a nekkid Tholian.

The need suits to exist in areas that we don't need suits.

From memory alpha
"Tholian biology required high temperatures around 480 Kelvin (207 ?C, 404 ?F). They could tolerate lower temperatures for a brief period of time; if they were exposed to temperatures around 380 Kelvin or less, their carapace would crack. This was painful or distressing; a Tholian subjected to such a temperature regime could be coerced to cooperate. In temperatures even lower, a Tholian would freeze solid and shatter."


btw my reaction to the pic of the Tholian EV suit: "haha what!?!? That is outrageous!" which is an excellent reaction. Can't wait!
