Yeah I forgot to hit refresh earlier too didn't even know the ask cryptic was even out. I do have to say it has inspired me and based off the either new added text in mine enemy or either I didn't remember it from that sounds like the iconians are manipulating all of the enemy factions to an extent. I saw where it said the Fek'ihr are massing for an attack pretty much under new leadership LOL.
I kinda wish I could have the first city template in foundry to create one of other iconic cities on Qo'nos in a foundry mission there is one that is suppossed to be like the twin city of the first city and would even be great to have a back drop of what we used to see in TNG of the KDF Headquarters to give it the kind of feel we get in adventure zones or even have one put like that for the KDF
A year and a half ago if anything was said wanting KDF content in forums or ask cryptics it was usually some of us you could count on one hand but especially from these ask cryptics it seems just like the Cryptic Live Team that the KDF has grown quite a bit too I guess both of those aspects kind of put some renewed faith in me plus season 8 and I don't mind it being in may especially since its around my birthday but gives a lot of time to get this new content done on alts before the next big thing hits.
I do have to say from the time when it seemed so gloom and nothing was coming out to now it has gone in a great direction. There just were some rough patches *excuse the pun* rofl but its great to have something to look forward to when there hasn't been much for me to look forward too in a long time
The other thought that occurred to me is that they might try giving us a T-3 version of these ships (KDF and the Ambassador) with us having to pay for the T-5 version.
Was along the lines of my first thought when I saw that T3 and T5 comment. So rather than do the Ody/Bort thing with the bundle later - they might be doing T3s with the T5 available in the store sort of thing...
Q: (eisenw0lf) Will the KDF ever get access to the mercenary costume? There are lots of 'alien'-characters on the red side who would love to have something to wear which is not an Omega armor or a distinctive klingon outfit. Some people like to play a Cardassian or Romulan and they look just stupid in the outfits currently available to KDF.
Dstahl: We agree with you that non-Klingons need more costume options, although we don?t necessarily think they look stupid. Rest assured that we are working on some new uniforms for the KDF side in Season 8 that are similar to the Mercenary outfits because not all KDF players want to wear spiky boots and shoulder pads.
Thanks for answering my question ... I guess? Hope you guys know that english is not my first language and my choice of words is based on whatever comes to my mind first, even if this results in 'stupid looking costumes'.
A solution for the AFKers in PVE bouts;
Track their damage/healing output (which is already done in some of the PvE bouts). Keep the information of "how much it take to be not considered AFK" a secret so the lazy players cannot figure it out and then just try to contribute the *absolute* minimum. This "minimum" line to be considered not AFK would varied from PvE bout to bout and varied between normal and elite modes as well.
if you do consider this, please be careful about it, one of my alts is a pacifist VA and doesn't kill or damage. Depending on the team the healing contributed is widely varied and her contributions are largely non-quantifiable (for example tanking Armek like she is made of diamond)
The easiest thing to do imo is to add personal console click checkpoints to make sure people are active as healing and even damage output can be automated
