Yes, it will release with Season 7. It was intended to go out earlier, but we hit a snag and are just now getting the UI time we needed to implement the final elements of it.

It's shocking that this Elephant is being overlooked by almost everyone. People keep talking about the 8000k per day - but not how MANY missions it will soon take to get that.

I can't understand why this is seen as a non-issue.

So Season 7 is more than just a systems update. It is a good addition to end game and a stage setter for the upcoming events and missions that will take us up to Season 8.
haven't you said that bolded line for about every season so far??

Yes because my team has been growing with nearly every update. My team size for Season 7 was bigger than Season 6. My team size for Season 8 is bigger than for Season 7.

No criticism here, just setting the record straight.

There is no Into The Hive space STF, just ground.

And the Retro Borg set is being changed not the Omega...

Adapted Honor Guard Gear.

So the KDF will now be able to get the MACO shield AND Plasmonic Leech console.

Funny, 2 weeks ago they were all in an uproar over a rumor the feds were going to get this combo. Where are they now?

This will bust pvp even more than it already is lol.

I gave up tryng to read every last post at page 15 so sorry is this has allready been anwsered.

Will the Borg cutting beam be compatible with a science ship's target subsystem attacks like other sheilds, or is it treated like cannon's/torps in this respect.

I know you've invested a lot of ressources in these new missions but my point was to say they were overshadowed by the new omega dilithium store gated behind the reputation system. if it's supposed to be a good

Then I guess that I don't want to see an 8th season, where you just revamp old stuff overshadowing your dilithium stores. Sure, the new romulan stuff is great, but the omega fleet, which is a transition from a free time-based only rewards system to a play to pay one, was unnecessary from a player's point of view.

I understand your point but I still do not agree with these changes. And you'll see that I'm not reluctant to pay when I think it's worth it, if you see my title.

While I completely understand your point and the transition the game takes, I have to disagree here with you. Endgame is supposed to be challenging. Nothing in season 8 is a challenge, unless you consider beating timer through easy missions (including the new stf, sorry Dan), is. So I'm still waiting, like many other vets, for a true endgame content.

Anyway, thanks for answering my post.

Hi,

I enjoyed reading this blog, and believe it's better for everyone. I've just read through this entire thread and have only one concern.

Stahl thanks for answering so many questions (though I feel you repeated yourself a lot).

The number of Elite STF runs needed to get a Mk XII gear set has been reduced by 60 percent
...
= nobody will feel the need to play IGE or CGE because those are easy to fail?

*not sure if better*
So yeah this is my one and only concern which zerobang brought up earlier and nobody else responded or brought up the same concern. I'm sure players will still play each individual STF mission for the accolades, but other than that once this Season 7 change occurs, there will be little incentive to play certain STF missions, as zerobang has already mentioned.

In my opinion the most difficult STFs are my favourites, I prefer a good challenge and mission that requires good team work as well as tactical thinking.

But if you're still around Stahl, does this not concern Cryptic at all? I can only imagine that the queues for the easiest STF missions will be constantly filled post Season 7 while the queues for the more difficult STF missions will pop infrequently due to the lack of players who're interested in them.
