Is he going to sprinkle us with some long overdue 'bug' fixes this year? Maybe if he is feeling generous enough he'll take us all back in time to Season 6 when this game was fun and not a $$$ sink, DIL or the real type.

Actually, the answer is Yes. CaptainGeko confirmed it yesterday on twitter.

@CaptainGeko

Teams working on this years winter events. It's gonna be bigger and better than last year.

@CaptainGeko

?@kirian_darkstar: can you confirm weather or not last years "special commodities" will be used again? ie Bolian Candle, Targ Earmuffs? Yes

As another example, all those blogs on the build up to season 7 about the new Romulan mark missions might have been better if they had come out before we could actually play the missions in question on Tribble. It might have helped get more people on Tribble.

Likewise, if you had put this blog out before we could see the date for Q's winter wonderland on the calendar in game, it might have been worth something. As it is, its not worth it.
Lighten up, malkarris.

Groovy. A couple of my toons still have some of those Holiday Commodities.

When XP earnings during a Double-XP Weekend still feel like I'm underperforming,
there's something terribly wrong with the reward system...

I don't know, Tribble bacon sounds ... intriguing.

With the right seasoning, I bet it could even be delicious.

Dude... Are you Borg? If so... remind us not to liberate you! You don't deserve such a privilege! Oh wait... maybe you're Sheldon Cooper? Oh, that would make more sense actually... You sound so like Sheldon now that I think about it! Oh... Sorry Sheldon!

Back on topic: Anyone else read that blog in the voice of Q? I know I did!

Very well written Cryptic team! and not only do I look forward to the start of the event itself, but I also look forward to the next blog post revealing more juicy details!

Lets see how much of a grind there will be for people to get these prizes or how much dilithium will need to be paid.
