Problem here is that nobody plays vault outside the hourly event. So by a technicality you are limited with this one.

No Humps... Just a few Toes... <chuckle>


They forgot to add the ICONIA System...

Which should be above the Archer System and some where to the right of the Nequencia System.

The Reman Mk XII set isn't good enough to gate as hard as they gated it, IMHO. It seems like a cloaking, plasma torpedo boat set.

So... Ah... Mainly good for KDF and Galaxy-X and even then not with the preferred builds.

Frankly, I think it's entirely possible that this entire idea of 'Asianifying' the game could be anywhere on the spectrum from 'totally true' to 'totally made-up.' While it's undoubted that PWE has had at least SOME influence, I also think it's entirely possible that PWE doesn't really CARE all that much so long as Cryptic brings home the bacon, and possibly follows some mandates from on high, e.g. helping with R&D, and possibly putting lockboxes in.

Something that needs to be kept in mind is that PWE will do with Cryptic whatever PWE thinks will boost its bottom line. It's not trying to float an ideology, really. If it's "dictate their every move," they'll do that. If it's "who cares so long as we see the green," they'll do that, too. Though IMO they are PROBABLY smart enough to know a completely Asian model simply won't work in North America, and Cryptic's stuff is almost entirely geared towards a Western audience. If this company was willing to throw millions and millions of dollars to try to get a foothold in North America, they probably did at least a little research on the issue. That said, I could be completely wrong, save for the fact that PWE is more interested in whatever will make it more money than anything else.

Please change the name of the sector - "Tau Dewa" wtf is that? Need something friendlier/commercial?

Give it a better name or better still ask the community for one

Well, "The Vault" could as well be completely timegated, since the Data Logs ONLY drop while the event is live, for that one hour.
With the quality of Pugs at the moment, and the increased difficulty, i get, if i'm lucky, one Datalog per Event.
-> getting 90 of those for the XII Set? ...for more than one character?

That makes the random STF Mk XII Tech drops odds look more reliable than ever getting a Reman XII Set.

If ya check out the Star Trek Maps, there is actually a Dewa System located in that area...

To bad They Didn't Actually Include It, in the new Zone.


Personally I would have picked Zeta Pictoris, it's a more prominant system on the maps.

How is "Tau Dewa" any worse than "Iota Pavonis", "Psi Velorum", "Pi Canis", "Omega Leonis", "Eta Eridani", "Zeta Andromedae", "Beta Ursae", "Alpha Trianguli" or "Gamma Orionis"?

Well, while PWE would only have to look at NCSoft to see how "well" that kind of customer shoe-horning works, Cryptic has established a track record of selling themselves to such markets. PWE may not be quite the "grind til your eyes bleed" mentality, but they're obviously more than willing to nickel-and-dime a game away.
I was someone else here til the forum/account transition lied
and told me that my original name was taken.
