Have you seen what Champions has done with their vehicles?

Lockboxes and C-store.

Every.

Single.

One.

And you bet your arse STO will do the exact same thing.

The problem i see with ground vehicles/mounts is, that there is no need to have them,.. at all.

Short of giving roleplayers some new toys (i dont mind that) its just a dead end project in my eyes.

Maps in STO are generally small/contained, and the bigger ones usually warrant a reason AGAINST having a vehicle

the two examples i remember being brought up last time i saw request regarding argo and other GVs (ground vehicles from this point on), were the map from 'coliseum' and 'Cure Ground,' in coliseum you are snatched up from your ship/transporter beam/derelict station and plopped into the middle of no where, a vehicle there would make no sense, and cure ground would need LOTS of changing just so a GV can be implemented (difficulty/optional etc)

I can see if GVs do get introduced they will likely become the shuttle of ground missions, used so sporadically and getting so little use out of them, they might as well not be in game possessions, rather just statically part of a mission such as the BoP from the doomsday mission/ runabout from the KDF prision break mission(s)

Please, God! No.

The Argo was the best example of jumping the shark in Star Trek that I know of.

Since Cryptic decided it would be brilliant to create content where the only way to adequately participate is to gamble on lockboxes or drop money on c-store items.

Last time I was on CO they were just rolling in their Dil-equivalent. I should have a hefty stipend built up by now, hmm...

In Federation news, traffic jams to the exchange are at a stand still and seem to be a 3 hour wait...we will take a look from chopper Dan's traffic report.

Chopper Dan here, as you can see traffic is at a stand still, as we see all the cars in line waiting for access to the exchange. OH MY GOD!! there appears to be a pile up at the bank, it seems the vehicles don't fit in the small space, oh the humanity i count 30 captains all stuck together...this was not a good idea...back to you at the station


Well Dan thank you for the report, we will take a break, and come back on our segment, Gorns are they really so Gornny
