I just don't understand what is going through their heads. The whole concept of Star Trek was to better yourself and all I see Cryptic doing is shooting themselves in the foot. Please learn to prioritize Cryptic and stop screwing up things that work fine, if it isn't broke don't fix it. Surely you must see the amount of people that aren't happy with certain changes.

Sometimes all I picture is a bunch of guys sat in a studio going, "So what can we do to mess with them this month?". Fixing the servers and more of the bugs, and working on areas of the game that could do with an improvement would be nice.

I would have said it differently, but the basis is there.

Not everyone DOFFs daily or even weekly.

Not everyone has maxed out ... heck ... I bet most have not maxed out DOFFing ... and that alone takes time.

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

Why do you removed FM from foundry, because ppl played those and didn't do anymore Fleet Mark events. We get a ridiculous small amount of FM from most of the FM missions and THATS why people came to rely on Officer reports for FM.

From what I can see, the debacle and outcry at the beginning of S7 didn't teach you anything. Give from one hand and take back with the other never work well, you only anger everyone and from what I see, small fleet are the ones who will pay the price for those decisions.

At the very least give more FM for those fleet missions. And as many here said, pugging those missions is often a nightmare and even worse if you get stuck with low level players. I've been into a fleet alert with 3 player below the rank of commander and got stuck with borg, total and utter massacre, those poor dudes just kept dying and really didn't enjoy any of this (not to mention the mission failed).

When S6 started you stated that fleet starbase were meant to be upgraded by all sizes fleet. Well from what I've seen and heard from small fleet, none of it is small fleet friendly. I'm happy we have an active fleet with a decent number of members otherwise we would not have the ressources to be where we are. And even now with FM taken away from officer report, we will again struggle to farm enough FM for our project and at tier4 and up be ready for excessive amount of everything needed for fleet project.

Will this be another push a major change to the way player get resources and a back down when the S**t hit the fan? Thats not a very intelligent way to do it.

Federation and Klingon Starbases: The Winter 2012 Base Ornament will now start off as hidden after it is unlocked.
That is really nice. But you know what would be extremly awesome? The same with Tribbles. I know, I know. Give a hand and they take the arm. But that would be one of the if not the best SB related change ever. Thanks.

Not so nice about the fleet marks. How dare I enjoying some nice foundry missions and also support my fleet while doing so. Why do you so often jump to all or nothing extremes? :/

You know it'd be nice to see more customisation over the interior of the starbase. Kind of like a sims'esq style. Not saying so we can put anything anywhere, but have choices of certain locations to place stuff or even different variants of the interior like with starships. The meeting room I think still feels too open. Could even add additional variants as Special Projects which I think would be worth the time and money (if you lower the costs, 100k would be better, still to much IMO as I feel special projects should use a very small amount of dilithium like 15-20k and alot of commodities).

Also use of the Holodeck would be cool. The bar or town from Voyager. There's a lot of potential for this game to feel more Trek, not that it doesn't now but there's still a few things that make it feel like a fast action paced space shooter which I personally think needs to be slowed down, and made to feel more expansive. Eve really knows how to do space, but I wouldn't want space combat that involved, not for Star Trek. Something closer to Bridge Commander or the Starfleet Command series.

I honestly never understood why the IOR's were changed from a daily to a repeatable in the first place. Not that I complained but it baffled me when they did it as part of S.7. I think removing the FM from it is a mistake. IOR should be left as is but be put back to a daily rather than repeatable.

I'm thinking the same.
Ideal as a daily, horrible as a repeatable
