Release 8.5 "STO The Next Generation"
Let the happy old bug stomping commence, along with refinement toward enhancing each factions play experience!
My #1 want? FREE BOXES! They got a lot of money out of the gift boxes last year. You get one and only 1 box(per char) for free each day. Last year you had to complete the ice race to do it. I'd expect something similar this year. (the catch that let them get a truckload of money was that the race usually gives you a crappy box that only has the low teir prizes in it. Buying a box in the store gave you the highest teir of box, but those would sometimes give the best prizes and sometimes give a lower teired box)
Seriously though, I can definately see them doing a daily that gives you a special prize.
Due to high demand, nano-pulse weapons are now unlockable from reputation projects costing 500 Omega Marks, 500 Romulan Marks, 25000 Dilithium and 10 Powered Alien Artifacts.
"We recognise the players' enthusiasm over these weapons and will bring back the weapons to allow more players to have access over them through reasonable reputation projects which has been scaled down to a single player level.
We expect the playerbase to appreciate this and continue to meet our expectations on Dilithium refining through more interesting reputation projects."
