On that upcoming content in STO wiki, they say ""High-stakes" Dabo night with high end rewards, possibly including a Ferengi ship." I skimmed through that whole ask Cryptic June 2011 and didn't find one mention of the "possibly a Ferengi ship." Anybody know where this was actually said?

not this one .... or next ...

by the way things seem to be going right now .... not before real Romulans visit Earth, to bring us Story-Mission-Replicators



Well they've told they're trying to work on this 2012 ... even IF it would only postpone a possible Romulan Faction


This is where I don't understand Cryptic or Perfect World. The severe lack of content is what doomed this game from the beginning. If they had 2 or three times as much content as they do now they could have tiered it better for Lifers, Subers, and F2Pers. Meaning, enough content could have justified continuing to want to buy a life subscription because it had enough cool perks that it actually meant something. Subscriptions would have still been worth it, too, because if the Kling dings were completed and Romulans were ready, people still want those extra character slots. Now, the only reason why subscriptions are worth it is because you get a stipend for buying stuff in the c-store that may or may not be available soon. Anybody else see what's wrong with this picture?

Dude, if Cryptic, hired just 3-4 more mission content guys, they could resurrect this game in less than a year. If they brought Romulans in by the end of 2011, they could resurrect interest in Life time subscriptions. Come on fellas!

Well, if they really add some content to the KDF (playable content like missions) I will also believe the end of the world is possible. I mean 1 mircacle shows that another 1 can happen too, right? On the other hand, is it logical to assume that KDF content and the end of the world are in some way connected to each other?

Only in the sense that both are somewhat equally likely to occur.

Dan Stahl said it here, in response to my question:

Q: PhyrexianHero Will there be any changes to Dabo so that we can bet more than 100 energy credits per slot at a time?

A: We have been discussing adding a "high-stakes" Dabo night to the game sometime during Season 4 which will up the limits and add new high end rewards. I'd really like the ability to win a Ferengi ship for a boatload of Gold Pressed Latinum, so maybe that will happen too.

I don't work for Cryptic. The short answer is because people already *did* pay money for it and some people want to have every special item possible.

Thank you phryexian! God, I've hoping for even a subtle hint of adding in a Ferengi ship for quite sometime. What scares me is it's been almost 9 months since Dan Stahl said that, and as far as I know, it hasn't been mentioned again (in any eng reports or dev diaries). Please give us a tier 5 ferengi maurauder Cryptic!!!!

Edit: it also seems like D Stahl mistyped something there.

It looks like he meant to say a Ferengi ship or a boatload of Gold pressed latinum. Correct me if I'm wrong here.

You are always welcome.

I think the original quote was correct, as the latinum you won (which may be a lot if its high-stakes) would be able to purchase a high-cost item like a Ferengi vessel. That said, it appears that anything Dan said as EP should not be assumed as the gameplan anymore (see up to 10 Feature Episode series a year dropping to *maybe* 3).
