We had the "Captains" website option back when the game launched and at some point it was disconnected from the game servers so that the Captain, Ship name, Rank, and Captain's Logs, didn't propagate from the game server to the web server anymore.
How did it take months of programmer time to turn this feature back on and expand it to include ships/boffs/items? It was pretty much halfway done in it's earlier form two years ago when the game launched. Was it the conversion to PWE's style of webpages/backend?
Also, what's the timetable for the meat of this (ie. DOFF Assignment Management) since that's really what everyone wants. I don't know anyone that sits around comparing character loadouts at a coffee shop w/o a laptop that has STO on it...
Then again I don't know many people comparing loadouts period...
It seems more like a marketing tool at this point than a functional and useful feature for the playerbase. I hope it doesn't stay that way for long.
Could we adjust how our boffs' rank and stats appear on the gateway? I had a fright when I saw my boff list a while ago when I accessed the Captains profile when it was still active. It showed that I have a squad of 9 Commanders when technically they are supposed to be of lower ranks.
Maybe have the boffs rank in the STO Gateway to be based on the Tailor option?
Players have been asking for the return of the ability to see your characters since it was dropped when the PWE site was migrated. This looks much-much better that we had before. It's fantastic that they have gone to the effort to add some more function also, and more to come .
Leave it to the whiners to start to complain about something before its even released yet
