But Brandon is right in that "Into the Hive" refers to the ground portion of the STF. The space portion will probably have its own name.

It is a face off against the Borg Queen diamond as well as some other challenges at one of the unimatrix complexes. It is pretty awesome.

Jeez... they can't just drop everything and fix a few non-priority things like those, especially since there's little-to-no return value on the work needed to do so.

And on a more serious note, it's exactly people like you he was talking about, what with attacks and such. He's here in this thread for all this time, and you still say that? It says a lot more about you than him...

That does not rule out changes that might be made based on feedback, it just says hate me all you want. I can take it. I have the benefit of seeing the reality behind the scenes to know the truth that the game is doing really well.

At the end of the day, this team cares about STO and still spend many hours a day working to make it better and more fun for everyone. Not everyone has the same play style or the same feedback. We have to weigh everything and make a measure and calculated decision. So far we've done pretty good if you go by the success of the game versus how some would like to portray our efforts.

HELL YES!!! HELL YES!

Also what about what i suggested a few pages back? About high level accolades translating into discounts of projects? Is that a viable option and if not why not?

Yeah simply put the amount of Dilithium on the exchange is dependent on the surplus players have to spend on Zen conversion, this surplus will be diminished by the new Dilithium sinks and thus we will see a fundamental change in the economy I would expect.

The fact that kitting out one ship alone will cost 280k in dilithium not including the 200k required to reach Tier 5 means many will have to re-evaluate their purchase choices, especially given the 8k 24 hour Limit.

If I've already earned something, it is mine to do with as I wish. I should be able to use it whenever I want to. I shouldn't be forced to play more of the same stuff, that I've already played a TON, to use the items I've already earned.
Any of the Space &/or Ground Items that You Already Have will remain playable...

It's ONLY the CONSUMABLES that will be held till you get to Tier 5.

Mr. Stahl, i asked this earlier, but it was passed over relatively quick.


1)will the new console+torp+beam set have any new visual effects to add to the existing brog visual?

2)will they have their own set bonus?

3)is there any possibility of making the rewards account wide rather than character wide to help alleviate some of the stress the conversion is placing on people with stockpiles?

Well, I for one would like to thank Dstahl for all of the time he has taken to make the replies in this thread.

Personally, I am most excited about the upcoming expansion of the Foundry Spotlight because it means there will be a new mission for people to play every week that actually rewards them for taking the time to play it.

On a side note, with all of the talk about offering new ways for players to earn dilithium, why not create some kind of daily for replaying episodes after you've reached max level?

I have no idea where it is at the moment...

But there is a post out there by the Dstahl, that explains that that particular "Non-Problem" is "...Working As Intended".
