The season isn't one release on one day. The season thing is meant to be things released over a window, so it WILL make season 3.
Thats correct. Its called a "season" because its kind of like a TV show. It may not happen in the first episode of the 3rd season, but it will happen in one of the episodes(aka updates) before the 4th season.
I'm glad, as long as they leave it on Tribble in Open Beta. It clearly needs a tonne of work doing to it and I think some extra time getting feedback and testing from a broader cross-section of the player base is pretty much essential.
Good on ya, Cryptic, for not releasing something that isn't ready! I appreciate it!
Practice. That's how I'm looking at it. Once it goes live, I should be able to recreate my lost missions within minutes.
Really? Daaang. I don't think I'll be able to place my NPCs in minutes, much less put all the stuff back onto the map and build the objectives.
I don't really mind, mind (though I'm going to miss my space station map...) because you're right. This isn't just beta testing. It's practice. When I go to Holodeck, I'm going to know how to do all the stuff I'm figuring out and kludging right now.So, I may not be able to bring my pretty, pretty map with me when I go, but Version 2 will be prettier.
