# 1 Get a Bartender Fleet project
08-20-2012, 04:35 PM
250 Dosi Rotgut and 250 Romulan Ale... you're out of your damn mind!

At current Exchange prices, you're looking at ~75M EC for all that booze. (assuming there's even that much available) There really should have been more variety needed for the 'bar', instead of huge quantities of just 2 of very hard to get stuff. This project will probably be in our queue for months! The freakin bartender we get out if this better have access to EVERYTHING!
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

Yeah, I have to admit our fleet (which is not a small fleet...) is struggling with this one. I'd have liked to have perhaps had to have those numbers around....100 let's say? Or as you suggest a wider range of liquor needed.

I've had great success it gathering Ale from Romulan missions and through my onboard bartender DOFF quests. I think you can also get R.Ale from confiscating contraband - although I mostly get Dosi from that.

Encourage your fleet to explore those options regularly.

I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I accidentally lost about 6 Ale while gathering for this project - as I had a tribble hiding in my inventory. 'lil bugger.

The bartender is IDENTICAL to the bartender on your ship (The one everyone has by default).

Do you get access to more/different DOFF Missions? No!!
Do you get access to more/different drinks? NO!!
Does he buy things from you at a better rate than the Replicator? No!!
Does he come with any COSMETIC changes to the area (like bottles in the middle table)? NO!!!!!
Do I see any point to buying him? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!
What about the Chef at T4? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!

that does seem a bit silly, (the small fleet im with isnt at that point yet, but i believe that we WILL NOT be taking this assignment until something is changed )

Just want to say this..
If the cost of one of the projects is insanely silly.. dont take it..

I mean what use is a bartender on your starbase in the first place? (excluding roleplayer's starbases)

This project is truly ridiculous. I appreciate having a fleet bartender but at this cost it is killing the morale of our fleet. We expect to be grinding out this mission for at least 1-2 months at the rate we're collecting these drinks. Could you at least add the option of cancelling the project ? We would be willing to take the loss of the already contributed marks and items if only to bypass this mission all together. If only I could turn back time :p

I think my fleet might be holding off on the Bartender honestly, just because of the reasons mentioned here. I'd rather wait, gather more of these silly drinks, upgrade more important things, and then when we have nothing else to bother with, than we do this mission.

If I was one of the people setting the active projects, I wouldn't have.
