To the Devs:

Have you thought that the bartender assignment might require too many dosi rotguts and romulan ales? I run a moderately sized fleet (around 20 active players), with few resources after buying all these doffs (that's another issue though). These items are very hard to obtain (rotguts through a doff chain with limited returns, and ales as a rare random drop). To put it simply, we've been working on this assignment for weeks, and have only been able to scrape together/afford 40 rotguts and 69 ales. I have a friend running a more active fleet of about 40 active players, and they are also stuck on this assignment as well. As of last night, my fleet became able to do a new science upgrade, but are unable to due to not being able to either finish or remove the bartender assignment. My request? either find a way to make the bartender assignment more doable (I suggest 50 of each as a more modest requirement, rather than 250 of each drink), or please give the 1279th a way to remove it from our active queue, as this is severely impeding my fleet's progress towards higher tiers. I look forward to hearing from you guys.

Thanks,
Alice Petrovna Tuel, CO, T.F.R. 1279th Tactical Battle Fleet

Any other thoughts from my fellow community members?

What is even worse is that there is really no reason to do the Bartender Assignment, because it doesn't really DO anything.
  • You get access to all the stuff you can buy from your replicator anyway
  • There are no DOFF missions other than what is available on your ship for free
  • The item buyback isn't any better than the replicator
  • There is not even a cosmetic change

Again, unless you RP (and even then it is dubious) there isn't a reason for it (at least not that I can see) and definitely not for that price.

Well... at the moment i seem to be the only active person in my fleet and I am a bit stuck on pretty much everything (Dilithium is the bottleneck obviously), I use teh time to save up on Dosi Rotgut in the meantime, will be a long time before i even get near that assignment and then i wont slot it before I have all the booze necessary, and then i may decide to be better off selling the stuff

FYI you can get ale and rotgut from confiscate contraband from crew with a critical, the same with a few Marauding assignments. Then there is the bartender on ur ship interior with the por drink and special reserve assignments, a critical yields 1 or the other.

Just doing these assignments for the last 2 weeks on my 5 toons i have yielded nearly 100 of each for my fleet.

No, a critical CAN yield one. I have crit them both several times without getting either.

And if your character finishes the 'Tulaberries' research chain, that unlocks the 'Experimental Cocktail from Tulaberries' assignment that generates 'Dosi Rotgut'...

The Bartender Project is doable. My Fleet just completed it earlier this week, and we're not that large a Fleet...

My fleet leader told everyone that we won't start the project until all the booze is available. So far we got half the Romulan Ale required and a quarter of the Dosi Rotgut required.
