Starting this Thursday, July 12th, Cryptic Points are converting to ZEN.
What do you think that entitles?
Its all about knowing what you don't know. Other words, converting the game from C-Points to Zen is not as simple as flipping a switch. Lots of in game elements are affected. If you are wondering about the other stuff, the events are listed on the in game calendar.
Personally, I can wait for Cryptic to work the bugs out.
The S6 mods on Tribble are still too buggy. Minor irritation in some and virtually unplayable on the Nukara scenario. If everyone gets what they want, when they want it, we're going to end up with downtime 2, 3, even 4 times a week for them to patch all the holes. Remember the post S4 and S5 launches? The ******** was never ending.
If all they're doing is lining up the CP to Zen conversion, let them do it right. If I had 4000 CP, logged on the next day to find I had 2 Zen, I wouldn't care about the launch of S6 at all. Cryptic... take the time to do it right... this time!!
Meowntenance is cumplete, and as I foresaw on Page 5, it's just meowntenance, no patch. At least a baby-patch for Tribble. I think we're not going to see Season 6 live in this month, should be around August first half. The bugs need sirius attenshun. ^^

We have been actively monitoring the contribution amounts by fleet members. Keep in mind that the Cryptic_Tribble fleet is a maxed out Fleet and not the norm when compared to the average fleet size. There are less than 1000 active Fleets with more than 25 members whereas there are 7000+ active fleets with less than 25 members. (active meaning the fleet members are actively playing the game)
That said, we do recognize that large fleets will run into contribution dogpiling early on in the system and are engineering slight additions and changes to special projects in order to compensate.
We will continue to monitor the contribution amounts and make adjustments as necessary. For now we feel comfortable launching as it is in today's Tribble build as we feel it is going to be slightly different on Holodeck and want to see how it goes when everyone is spending their real assets.
Come join the 44th Fleet.
