Love the info. Kind of surprised you guys didn't also release something like a Dev Blog on this very site at the same time though. Kind of strange to just release the info to one gaming site (especially one that rcently and badly misconstued comments made on a public Fleet site from a now Cryptic STO Dev team member very recently); but lately I've honestly not understood why/how Cryptic has made a lot of its marketing decisions since PWE bought them.

@Alecto

JB wasnt wrong to post what they did in their podcast. All the podcasts are currently in this state of tension in regards to if the game is in its darkest days and is there any light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm getting the picture though if you do not want to belong to a horrid massive collection of people in a fleet you can forget about enjoying the system if its got enormous price tags on upgrading Starbases to high Tiers.

Yep, those of us in small fleets can probably forget about ever getting and keeping a tier 5 afloat.

looks cool and all, but what is the point of these starbases? are they just going to effectivly replace ESD for anyone who is in a fleet? the only clue so far is that you can do some modifying to the stock tier 5 ships like the sovereign at these fleet bases.

Tier progression can mean that a smaller fleet will want to get bigger.To do that it will spam the heck out of the poor zone chat
Then there are people who created fleets to exploit the microscopic bank space.

When (if) will go to tribble we will see if we have to remove the zone chat from the chat

Only thing that could make Starbase zones better is if they had their own unique ambient music e.g. Starbase 12 in Bridge Commander.

Just because this article gives a couple of small details (or breadcrumbs) about how fleet starbases work doesn't make what was said in STOked Ep 124 "wrong."
