I hope this is sarcastic b/c we've only seen a million dev posts explaining that we never actually had DX11.

I'd rather be a Captain 50 than an Admiral 50 that does the exact same things Captains do.

Prior to this change, we started counting at 1, and since each rank contains 10 grades, we'd rank up at level 2, 11, 21, 31, 41, 46 and 51. Now we start the game at level 0 and rank up at level 1, 10, 20, 30, 40, 45 and 50.

People like even numbers. It's a psychological thing.

I'm wondering if the new graphics changes will help stop the crash to desktop I keep having when attempting Borg ground missions, ie Khitomer, Cure, Deferi etc. If this does, then hurry up with the transfer to holodeck.

DirectX 11 support sounds fun, but is there any chance that actual DirectX 10/11 features and improvements could be implemented in STO? Things like Tesselation?

Before i .. ok will look here it is..

We all know were on the road to somewhere..

But the time to road opens changes.. or goes on too long.. its not as fun.

So you make with the fun
We'll enjoy it

and we all wIN.

cAse in point.. Level caps or Glass ceilings should go away
and be accomplished to improve gaming excitement and grant new paradigms of game areas ie maps

To accomplish this Cryptic should add to existing areas or Sectores such as the under utilized Pella Undine area.

Deep Space
These areas should be for the Undiscovered Counties and more persistant First Contacts.

Diplomacy

Diplomatic assemblies and meetign sites such as Babel have been in hard cannon and soft alike and provide for positive rewarding non-combat and combat security Short long deployment options.

Organian type Missions were factions compete for favours of locals fortrade could spawn nice mini FE's?

I would prefer some sort of boundary characters around the level, perhaps "Vice Admiral (50)" or "Captain [L30]" to distinguish between the rank and level a bit more.

I think the level changes were a good idea.

I'm sad that this didn't involve a change in the UI that would allow us to choose our form of address in dialogues. Not everyone cares to be considered an "Admiral" by NPCs.

I still think the Rear Admiral "Upper Half" and "Lower Half" distinction is silly, though. I would not have kept it.

DirectX 11 support seems a good thing for the game.

the improvements are actually implemented or else you wouldn't see a performance increase... like on so many console ports.

But yes the most interesting DX11 feature is tessellation, and it would be quite awesome for the ships, now that we have higher resolution textures a more detailed models also would be nice... but I guess thats more a problem for captain logan cause he would have to update all ship models... again. :p

lol yeah I am afraid you are right.
