(I could not start a new thread, so I am posting the bugs that I found here)
- Does not show the people waiting in the queue, it is very difficult to know which one to join and which ones have no-one waiting (possible not a bug)
Azure Nebula Rescue
- multiple people can click on disable tractor beam which are protecting the ships, normally the person that clicked the button would be the "active" person and the button would disappear for everyone else
The Vault: Ensnared
- The mission ended and the leave map option appeared before optional objective was completed
- An additional ship appeared after a ship was destroyed even with the leave map was active (mission ended)
- After completing the PvE no Omega marks were given
Thanks for the reminder. I knew there was a glaring problem with the PvE queue where it lost the count of the minimum needed. If they do not want a number to prevent people avoiding certain queues due to low interest, is there a visual cue to let us know which ones are almost full? I think there may be a color designation.
I like how in the "defeat X of Y" patrol missions, instead of going out to hunt each wave down when they're just floating around, you're actually fighting alongside besiged Romulans and the enemy waves come in one at a time as the last one goes down -- it creates a great continuity of battle and ups the intensity, since you don't get a nice, easy block of time to recuperate between attacks.
The reputation system's... there. It's effectively the same as the others, which is cool, but it bugs me that I go out and patrol or fight deep space encounters on behalf of the Romulans, and maybe get a few marks that don't actually do anything for my rep until I run a project in the system. It's like... "hey, thanks for defending our sector and saving our bacon... but if you want us to actually appreciate your efforts, cough up some dilithium and a few provisions for our troops or stop wasting our time." I expect that from the Fleet or Omega -- the Fleet it's all about building things up, and Omega's part of a wartime effort. The Romulans I'd like to be pretty impressed with how I'm putting my ship, crew and self on the line for them, even if I don't help them build their rec center right away.
I mean -- seriously. I'm at zero Reputation until I cough up Entertainment Provisions for their colony? Fighting off the Tholians is meaningless until I arrange a USO show? Oh, and then it doesn't count for a couple of days -- which means until they actually finish building that rec center, then the heck with me and my help? Borg you, buddies! I'm sorry you can't unlock the shop where I can buy the plasma rifles -- oh yeah, you're not giving me a rifle, I get to buy it -- until after you've finished spending a couple of days putting my 'support' into place even though I'm hosing off the corridors where my crew died during the firefight to get there.
Oh no, wait. I got Marks in that firefight. So you're going to graciously let me help you with building that rec center because I risked life, limb and crew on your behalf. I take it all back!
Seriously, I'm exaggerating my annoyance for comic effect, but this is a bit ridiculous. They came to us for help, and we're doing all this tohelp, but none of it counts before the projects? That doesn't work for this kind of reputation grind -- again, this isn't part of being a task force or building a fleet. This is actually working on behalf of a faction. The projects should be the most lucrative method for Reputation, but they shouldn't be the only one. At the very least, give us the option to burn off Marks for reputation directly.
The Vesta is gorgeous... hanging there in Earth Spacedock, since it doesn't seem to be in the store as yet. Which is fine -- I don't actually mind that. But maybe mention it in the Season 7 notes so people don't try and figure out if they're just not seeing it.
Agreed with the above on the "swapping characters without logging out" thing. It's surprising just how nice a perk that is.
I'll keep going, but I wanted to get my early impressions down. Beautiful sector, well laid out missions, nice UI tweaks, and 'bwah -- the heck is wrong with these people' Romulan Faction Reputation system.
Your "comic relief" perfectly captures my and I am sure others feelings on the reputation system.
Oh yeah, the bug where the login screen defaults to a Cryptic login instead of Perfect World one is still there. It forces me to attempt logging in again if I forget to switch it over to PWE. I take it this will be fixed when we all switch to a PWE login?
Anyone else notice things like the Romulan researcher and the viver cat are answers to the once long ago thread where we asked for animals and creatures to explore. It was in some long ago thread where someone even made a mock of species we would hunt through our the galaxy to add to our records. Can't remember that player's name though, but it is in the forum archives.
Every space battle I played, the notice of completion pops up, and asks if you are ready to leave, and if you immediately respond, you are givena message that you cannot leave while in combat. You need to adjust for proper cooldown, before the popup completion message.
Also, in the mission where the Gekli are hearded, there is a glitch at the end, right before the final battle notice comes up. Somehow , I guess we killed the last foe before it was expected to happen, and the mission hung for a bit. We wandered around over the map, and it finally cleared, without any more foes appearing. But we got a flash of the last battle notice by our bridge officer. It was strange. Then the Gekli started moving again, and it completed.
I know im a girl and we tend to be more emotinal but cryed last night was so mad then just got sad. this was my favorite game been on near 2 years even bought the lifetime last month. now ses 7 feels like STO is saying up yours. hear is you reward for all your loyalty. you bought the slots for 23 toon now you gotta grind resorces for all of them to get anything. oh and as an extra special F'you we will reduce what you can get. Thanks for nothing STO.
I spent a lot of time on the Tribble on 11/03/2012 and so far everything looks nice. I love that the Reman set made its way over to the Reputation system. I like the fact that the advancement system for Reputation isn't to outrageous and to me doesn't look like it would interfere that much with Fleet Starbase advancement.
The only problem I have encountered is load time. Loading New Romulus time like 10 minutes for me. My wife had problems loading into a combat situation yesterday and my son-in-law waited for nearly and hour for New Romulus to load, it never did.
But with you guys collecting feedback and looking in to the problems I would think they would be solved before Season 7 went live.
the following text copy of email sent to my friends
Im so sorry y'all. I know I pressured and persuaded many of you to come play STO with me. It was such fun back then. Then came free 2 play ? No as many of you have complaned is not realy not if you want to have the realy cool stuff. I was not crazy about lock boxes but understood this is buisness and they need to make a Profit. but now well lets face it the money grubbers are in total control it seems. Season 7 and the "new more fair reputation system" is a Lie. Not even a good one at that now you need even more resources and they are cutting back on dilith rewards??? I know that many of you dont have the time to grind for whats needed now. we lost bun already and i know at least 2 more of you said are leaveing. I just want you to know I dont blame you. If I had not bought a life time I would join you. I do give my word tho ive bought my last zen card. I will never buy another. I refuse to pump one more dime into PW's coffers. It will make the game much more dull and tedious and probly wont be on as much so for those staying sorry for that. anyone who hasnt come over yet Please dont I can no longer recomend STO.
your friend marie
There really needs to be a Fleet category at the Choose Starship console./npc instead of having it all on the Vice Admiral category. There is already an All Ships cetegory for that.
Odd, I cant seem to buy the Akira Heavy Escort Cruiser onTribble. Price is listed as null "-". I know I dont own this one already on either server so this is odd. It's the same thing for the Caitin Atrox Carier and the Assult Cruiser retrofit. Also the Odyessey set.
Ok, I think I know why. I appear to still have access to the CRYPTIC store before the switch to PWE & Free to play back when we still had the Winter Wonderland of 2011. LOL. Too bad I can't have access to the same store on Holodeck.
