A good idea, as its a bit hard to test things on Tribble because it takes ages to get a 5man Team. It would be nice to make such Tests also with the new 20Man Fleet action, because i think the most testers cant to that mission as its almost impossible to get 20 Players together.
Season 7 looks like little more than an attempt to pollute the rest of end-game with the fleet project interface, itself a deal-breaker for a lot of players who realize that fleets are essentially a scam to make players pay real money for fleet ship modules.
It's like forcing players to do crafting in addition to earning the marks and several different types of currency and commodities to obtain in-game rewards that were previously more straight-forward. I want to shoot the bad guys and get rewards, not jump through hoops designed to warm me up to the idea of working for my rewards and buying them too. Or worse, spending hundreds of dollars to gamble for them, and still probably lose.
If you spent less time scheming to get more of our money, and more time making a game worth paying for, the first problem would solve itself.
I would love to attend but some of us do work for a living....can you try to get some odd hours slots...I'm US PST and 8pm is like 5pm here...most in the west coast are working and/or school. How about Weekends?
