I like it. It's pretty fun and doesn't take long, and it rewards some Dilithium. Given that this isn't an STF, I don't think it needs to be made harder or have an Elite version. After all, I don't see anyone moaning that Klingon Scout Force or SB24 needs to be harder/have an elite version.

The one thing that does dissapoint me is the fact that I can't tell when i'm able to do a Shard run. To me, once per day means that if I did it at 11pm and got a shard, I should be able to do it again at 1am and get the shard for that day too. I assume it's on a cooldown timer, but it would be nice if you could patch the game so we could see it. No offense, I like the mission, but i'm not playing it back-to-back until the appointed hour comes around. I've got other PvE missions to grind.

# 93 Crystalline Catastrophe Event
04-13-2013, 05:11 AM
I have noticed that since this event was up and running that there is no Borg Processers been given out for Elite STF's, why? and there is only 480 Dilithium instead of 980 is this due to the launch of Crystalline Catastrophe? please can someone explain why

I did not notice such a thing. You probably joined a normal STF by accident, those don't reward processors and only half the amount of dilithium.

As people have stated the drops are highly forgettable *yawn* Once the event is over; the only time people will run it is to supplement EC for some reason by selling all the vendor trash. /shrugs imo either just give a flat EC payout or items that people might actually, I dunno, use?

along with a bump in the loot being needed

has the staff considered the implications of having an event rep system with no cancel on the tasks?

CE is the first mission in there, they also said they plan on using it for the winter wonderland and who knows what else
the CE shards are only dropping for a limited time during this event
what if for whatever reason u dont complete the CE event, or dont complete some of the winter events and the missions are stuck in there?
if they add a new task in there u are sunk

this is another reason why all rep tasks, starbase tasks and embassy tasks need a cancel button
we need the option of stopping tasks.... without the staff deciding they are gonna do it for us


oh and again i emphasize.... STOP shooting the CE in absorption phase!

10 days and still unable to patch, and 11 days ago the servers were so unstable I couldn't stay on more than 10 minutes at a time.

Nice attempt at trying to buy player patience while STO gets overhauled, but what about us that have fallen victim to your server problems ? Any chance for a event extension or replay in the future ?

One has to wonder what the hell was going on when the whole "dont add a cancel option" discussion was going on at Cryptic. Surely it cant be a simple matter of incompetence and lack of system design synergy.

I do enjoy this STF and I'm glad they revamped it. However the problem I have with this one and SB24 is the placing system. The only way to get 1st place is to hop in a kitted out escort and do nothing but sit next to the Entity and straight DPS and then win the purple gear at the end. I decided for the Entity to follow the Dev Blog advice about the creatures vulnerabilities so while I'm not DPSing the thing I am hitting it with Energy Drains, Gravity Wells, Scramble Sensors, Tachyon Beams, and all the other useful science powers in the mission that help the TEAM win and survive. I don't think it's fair that I have never once ranked even 3rd because I decided to be a team player instead of just another DPSer.

No thanks - my chances of getting first place are much higher with constant torp salvoes at range 9.9 where I can easily survive the bubble, and you have to spend time running back from the spawn point after it crushes you.
So, I am sitting alongside a Caitian Atrox Carrier at Earth Spacedock, and I think to myself "Man, that ship has a lot of windows".

Then it occurs to me that it makes a lot of sense, because cats love to sit in windows.
