Cryptics "Track Record" of improvements for non-Fed speaks Volumes.

The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it two other wild horses.

"How wonderful," the neighbors exclaimed! "Not only did your horse return, but you received two more. What great fortune you have!"

"We'll see," answered the farmer.

The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune. "Now your son cannot help you with your farming," they said. "What terrible luck you have!"

"We'll see," replied the old farmer.

The following week, military officials came to the village to conscript young men into the army. Seeing that the son's leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out.

"We'll see,"
I thought the story was about a Zen master. . .

Oh shut up. You Fedbears do PLENTY of whining and crying of your own, and you mostly get what you want.

At least the KDF has reason to complain. You Federation players are just spoiled.

You know bragging makes no sense, there's no losers here, since we're all going to be able to play the new content.

Being cautious with cryptic and what you could expect from them is... Expected, considering what they did over the last years. If there's no more reason not to be optimistic then i'm happy to be proven wrong, but for now, all we know is that there's a new faction, but no one knows what the content will be. Episodes? Rabbit tagging? Levelling using the mirror incursion ad nauseum? You see, there are still many questions that needs to be answered. And it's not a shame or being silly to ask them.

Hahaha suck it nananana I win you lose, ohhh what FE what what oh noo who is right What what you mad bro. Who has two thumbs and will be getting a Warbird This guy.

But that is beneath me, and it should be for you.

Firstly, I'm very happy there a major expansion in STO.

But lets just see what it looks like when its actually released. Are you going to be one of those players complaining about lack of content if there are huge holes?

Although I was expecting them to release the romulan faction, I did not call that it would be the may update.

Bravo to cryptic

You think we're going to get a whole 12% of the player base? Loving your optimism!
