I have a question relating to the upcoming launch of Season 7 and any anticipated down-time relating to the Foundry.
I'm running a Foundry-based Halloween event for my fleet over the next few days and wanted to know whether access to the Foundry will be turned-off, following the launch of Season 7. There seems to have been a history of this in the past, and wanted to know if any specific down-time is planned.
If so, will missions published prior to the Season 7 launch still be accessible, etc? For the benefit of Foundry authors, would the dev team be able to share any planned downtime details with us?
We've not announced the launch date for Season 7, but we'll be going through the same precautionary measures with the Foundry as we have for past seasons -- except, we're hoping for much shorter downtime durations Zero and I will work together to provie more information and communication (similar to last Season's release) as we get closer to launch of New Romulus.

To be really honest being that if you make a mission in the foundry rather its extremely awful or extremely impressive... The time players spend will either be spent on stfs, fleet events, doffing, or pvp (more ppl pvp in this game than people who do foundry missions).
There really needs to be a revamp of how the foundry operates in the games dynamics of a time spent reward system because you might write a great story but doesn't add up to a hill of beans if players view the foundry as a waste of their precious free time.
So in conclusion the foundry being taken down for short term or long term in its present state will not impact the game in the slightest.
