Marauding is a part of the doff system. So it's just one release.

Currently, Marauding XP is primarily gained through the duty officer system. Marauding and Diplomacy assignments will both be available when the system is launched.

Our goal for this release to Tribble will be to get as many people on the game, poking at it, and trying to break everything so when it goes live we have all of the inevitable issues worked out - and there is no way there won't need to be a significant amount of iteration for the duty officer system.

For the duty officer system, I want to see how fast people progress through things, what the actual xp and rewards rate are, and most importantly of all, what aspects do people like and what aspects do people not like so we can - where feasible - tweak things towards the former.

This. The number of people on the forums is tiny compared to the playerbase, and the number of people who actually post is a similarly tiny fraction of the people who read the forums.

I really hope there are tribble test rewards for testing the Doff and F2P stuff.

I may be starved for content but I'm also not a fan of playing broken content. Unless there is some perk I'd rather wait till the stuff hits live to play it. We've already waited 6+ months for most of this stuff so waiting a few more weeks isn't a big deal to me.

I've just had a curious thought process... lol

I responded to this in my mind, "Oooh, I want to help you break the world" and then thought "Wait a minute, this is an MMO, will it be possible for players to complete multiplayer DOff assignments? Has this even been considered? And if so how would that work?"

Will we be able to at beta launch or will we be able to later on have more than one player assign a DOff to the same mission assignment?

Would there be a point in doing this?

P.S. Did anyone like the assignment ideas I posted on the last page?

Yes, among other rewards, there will be specific rewards on Holodeck for testing the duty officer system on Tribble.

This has been discussed as a likely direction for fleet assignments when we turn our attention to fleets and starbases after the duty officer system is live and stable.

Any indication when we can start testing it?

I smell a tribble that when pet enhances slotted doff abilities by a percentage. OR, to make things a bit different, a doff. OH! Like EQAH! The Emergency Quality Assurance Hologram of Farktoid and Zero fame! That would make a great test reward. Dunno what they would do, but it I would be for it.

Oh this sounds... this sounds like fleets might be able to transfer spare DOffs to (and maybe from?) fleet starbases and could possibly do starbase DOff assignments?
