Been hearing about this for a long time, and still nothing. Everything that is said in ESD is never fact, and are what they are just rumors. It starts at ESD then someone says it to their fleet in team speak, then they say it to their friends in another fleet, and spreads like a virus. Then someone posts it on the fourms and poof anarchy.

Ohhh now I get it.

I think you should stop reading zone chat.

I wouldn't mind a fix though, as long as they provide us 10 times the bank storage we already have without charging like mad for it and better options to store important amounts of doffs. Because as it is the mail is the only way to be a trader in STO.

It is situations like this--the excitable lips of our fellow players who tend to take rumor as fact--that I simply ask for a bit of credible backing when there's to be declaration of a change that may affect me. If a Developer said they were seriously planning to edit a system in the game, I'd like to know when, where, and who.

As the internet colloquial goes: 'Pics or it didn't happen'.

As I have said I have also heard about Cryptic making changes to the mail system storage exploit before - I am just wondering it there is any more truth to it this time.

Of all changes they could make this one does not seem to be unreasonable or something wildly speculative since everyone knows the mail system was not designed(at least as I understand it) to be a long-term storage device.

Granted some of the things I hear are pretty wild - but this does not seem to be one of them.

You agree that this is an exploit?

Maybe they planed on it and still do but it is not a priory for them at the moment which is why this rumor has been around and around for a very long time.

And by creating this thread about it, youre continuing the turning of the rumor mill.

Are these the same unofficial sources that said Cryptic was going to change the daily officer report missions?

As Neoakirii said this has been going around and around for a while, perhaps this time we will get an official answer so that it will no longer be a rumor?

Well this is what Brandon had to say about that - and I take is word on it:

No information about such change has been released so it's all pure speculation by the "zone chat trolls" (I lurk in there often and you should hear some of these rumors they make up to get players all riled up). I will say that Neverwinter is working on tech for Foundry missions where players will earn rewards based on average completion time of a mission (within a mission itself; the "treasure chest" you open at the end). http://tavernugc.com/neverwinter-dev-post-round-up/ posted this recap about it. There has been nothing decided at this time on how this will affect the "Investigate Officer Report" daily -- feel free to include feedback in this thread on what you would like to see/ not see happen if there were a change.



If he has something to say about the mail issue then I will take his word on that to.
