# 1 Nuggets in latest interviews.

from Gamersbook interview

[DSTAHL] While Crafting currently plays a minor role in the game, we have big plans for how Crafting can be incorporated into future customization for Starships and Starbases. One of the updates we have planned in the future will incorporate Crafting into ship design and open up an entirely new avenue for specialization and customization.

[GB] Space combat is definitely one of the strongest game features, any plans for further improvement?

[DSTAHL] With the constant flow of new ships coming out of the shipyards, our next major update to ships will be to incorporate warp core design into how a ship performs in combat and what types of power it can bring to a fight.

[GB] Though space combat is well done, overall PVP is not in the state you would want it to be. What plans do you have for PVP in the future? Maybe new fun modes, better rewards?

[DSTAHL] We are planning to introduce a PvP Reputation along with more structured PvP events that will finally provide a much needed boost to this area of the game. We are collaborating with some of the great PvP designs on Neverwinter to rewrite the future for PvP in STO.

From Games Radar
GR: What kind of plans do you have lined up for future Seasons and Episodes? What can Tasha Yar fans expect?
DS: We are going to continue to expand on the events that have transpired in both the Romulan and Omega Fleet reputations by advancing the storyline forward for the game. We will delve deeper into how the Iconians have been manipulating the galaxy and set the stage for how it will impact the existing war between the Federation and the Klingon Empire.

A big question to be answered is what happened to Empress Sela at the end of ?Cutting the Cord? and how will this impact politics in the Beta Quadrant. If you?re a Tasha Yar fan, then you?ll also want to check out our Three-year Anniversary celebration for a few surprises.

From Massivly
You've stated that you thought that the upcoming Season Eight release would be "big" for the Klingon faction. Do you have anything you can add to that?

We've stopped calling it a season for starters. When we look at all the time and energy being put into this next update, it feels like it's shaping into something much larger. While we haven't shared specifics yet, we will be detailing our plans for the Klingon faction in the coming months.

That's all stuff he's lied about in the past. There was a time when the company was in a work stoppage, and they had no cups in the kitchen and nothing was being created because they were in a long drawn out process of being sold. That entire time he was on record as stating all of those things he's stating above.

There's just no record of trust when he talks about KDF and the development team.

Got nothing to lose waitiing to see what happens.

I must admit it sounds hopeful.

Still if even the new KDF players are complaining like old school, Cryptic may have quite the hurdle this year with what ever they may do or not do. I hope its good.
If not, meh.

Since we got a new ST movie coming out soon, they got a chance to keep the new blood which will flock in... keeping them happy and here will be another thing entirely.

Like many KDF players, am not holding my breath, waiting to see if all we been wanting for these past few years, makes it into STO or not.

The door is always there and I can guarantee that I won't let it hit me on the ass on the way out if things are not to my liking. No threats, just a promise for swift, decisive action on my part as a consumer and gamer.

Life is too short for me to stress out on a videogame. Will just mosey on to greener pastures and have fun elsewhere. Maybe I can find the time to properly develop that drinking problem I always wanted.

All I know is that if STO introduces a new playable faction before KDF gets the same level of mission content that Feds got at launch, then there will be a lot of ticked off KDF players. IMO Patrol Missions can be ignored since most of them are about as entertaining as exploration missions. Just have good KDF story content.

Warp core design sounds to me like another major push into monetizing pay to win.


Think about it.

All existing ships have standard warp cores. The performing warp cores become one of the lockbox possible drops. This is already planned and in the works for sure.

oh hai! Want bettah warp core? yes? buy mastah key! mastah key open box. you have chance to win wap core! any lo'kbox have wap core! you buy mastah key! you ship suck no more!

It does sound hopeful but then again they have been saying much the same about the KDF since launch and nothing has changed so far.

Given that this is the first time in 3 years that the resources have been available for something as big as finishing the kdf the chances are good.

But then again there are those who are never happy with anything(and they tend to let you know about more often and with a higher volume), so will cryptic ever be able to do enough in the eyes of these people?

Baring something truely aweful happening I plan to applaud any major content release regardless of whats actualy added. Because this could be blizzard, and we could be paying throuh the nose for the privlage of being ignored.
Actualy reading things pefore posting will make you look smarter than yelling loudly. Reading comprehension is aparently a lost art.
