Since the March calendar went up we've been wondering what the "Duty Officer Expansion (C-Store)" is. As far as I know Cryptic has been silent on what this paid expansion will contain.

Today's patch notes consists entirely of this gem:

Quote:
  • Temporarily disabled the Duty Officer recruitment assignments.
    • They will return with the Duty Officer expansion.
So unless I'm horribly mistaken the way this appears is that if we want new Doffs we either have to: (A) Pay for them directly as C-Store packs. (B) Purchase the expansion, again from the C-Store, just to retain in-game functionality that we had before today. Or (C) wait for the stars to align so Cryptic puts a new mission in game that contains a Doff pack as a reward (like this week's featured episode). And we all know how frequently Cryptic adds new mission content to the game.

Devs, please tell me I'm just horribly mistaken.

No idea what a DOff expansion pack even is, so I can't say.
Too bad really as I was about to get my DOff on and hunt down some of the rarer ones ingame.

They broke the reward lists for those missions. Once fixed the missions will be back as usual.

If that's the chase then it would have been nice to get a note about that.

IF it's true, then the game is just going from bad to worse.

It's probably an additional C-store pack you can buy, but it will be filled with different Doffs than the existing pack.

Rather like an expansion in a CCG.

"TEMPORARILY..."
"THEY WILL RETURN..."

Seems pretty obvious to me. They're down for a day or two while a bug is being fixed.

Just another case of bad wording from Cryptic. They're being taken out to fix an issue and will return AS THEY WERE when the DOFF expansion is released.

Because really, to take out the recruitment assignments and limit them to C-Store purchases would just be an unimaginably stupid move.

Yeah, I've been getting Cardassians and Vortas and other stuff that's not supposed to be out yet for the past few days from the recruitment assignments. It's just temporary.
