A certain other publisher/developer that I pay...all access... extra fee, to play more than one of their games, would never have done such a thing.
I agree with this, it seems to be a rather poor decision to pull the servers down for 2 hours when the 3 year Anniversary event is coming to an end!

Would it really have been so hard to change the maintentance to occur AFTER the Anniversary event has finished? Is it really too much to expect as little maintenance as possible (or preferably none at all) during an event that only happens once?

Common sense is against the TOS. Careful Bud.

Pay per month and lifetime players should get double of all rewards in all things, this would attract paying customers and lifetime sales like crazy, even X1.5 ec, dil fleet marks, romulan marks, (foundry marks) it would also curb alot of the random complaints from those that fund this venture, while allowing less attention paid to complaints later because hey, at that point a majority of those complaints come from those who dont contribute to the cause.
good luck Branflakes, i dont envy some aspects of your job Good huntin' and Godspeed!

ps: this is not a section where you can show us how big and awesome you are! if you want to help leave your trolling attitude at home!
you seem to be looking for an argument right now. See, I have this thing called patience. I'm not in a rush like most of the other people in this game seem to be. If you read what I said without getting so defensive, you will see that I wrote:


"once I hit that extra ten thousand mark on all of my tier 4's, I go over and cash in."


I never said a time frame or mentioned anything about what type of DOff's I use. To be honest, if I have a purple DOff available at that time, I use it. If I have a Blue DOff Available at that time, I use it. If I have a Green DOff available at that time, I use it. I don't generally have the critical traits available so again, I use what I have available at the time.

you stated:

>>in addition to max all the commendations will take ONLY 1 YEAR...<<

again, if you read what I actually stated:

"I've maxed out all but two of the commendation system tiers in the year that I've been playing"

I'm not sure how stating an alternative or additional method of earning fleet marks in lieu of them being taken out of the foundry makes me big and awesome as well as a troll. I'm sure others have much better methods to get FM other than this. BUT if it makes you feel better about calling me names because you didn't think of it first, then be my guest.


Oh and if I wanted to troll, I'd be pointing out how utterly good or utterly bad this entire nerf thing is for the good of game balance and harmony amongst all classes and types of gamers, including but not limited to incorporation of some sort of line, or blurb about PVP, PVE, Solo-play, Feds/KDF, Starbases, Tac's being OP, Sci's being UP, Cruiser's needing to be on par with escorts, more content for KDF, bashing Cryptic, Flamethrowers, Dilithium sinks, Embassy worth, Invisible Borg torps being awesome, Borg actually being OP, Bashing Cryptic, how much I reeeaaaaally want to have a new romulan faction BEFORE KDF story is fully fleshed out and how much the galaxy class apparently sucks (or rocks depending on trollish one wants to be), elitism and probably a bunch of other things.

OR. I could be a real phallus and say

"It's your choice to log in every day."

THAT, I believe, would be trolling.


Have a Day! =D

Quick question - is there a fleet that has hit Tier 5 on all of its projects? I know Aquarius has a T5 Shipyard, but maxed out their Tactical projects to do so...?

My fleet is halfway through upgrading our structures to Tier 4 (Shipyard/Fabricator done). We've *just* got enough to finish our upgrades to get fully to T4.

With this Valentines Day Massacre of fleet marks, I doubt we're going to bother getting to Tier 5. This is BS - the nerf bat needs putting down, and the fixing wrench needs to be picked up.

Quickly.

The one thing Cryptic excell at is nerfing there own content. They took loot away from stfs so poeple only ran KA ground and Infected Space. They made there own missions for fleet mark out of date by adding fleet marks to Investigate Officer Report. Now they need to make their content matter again. Big oops on Cryptics part. There can be a happy medium. They can add mutiple foundry missions to the log. One that rewards 1440 dilithium for the weekly feature misson with a 20 hour cooldown. Another with an 6 Hour cooldown that rewards fleet marks 50 fleet marks. One more misson that has hour cooldown for 480 dilithium and some EC. These missions should be allowed to piggy back so so one run could complete all three missions, like the old B'tran. The numbers could change but the idea should make people happy. These missions should still qualify for "Investigation Rules". They should also increse the FM for the fleet mark missions to make them viable option instead of Investigate. Also fleet marks should be rewarded for any teamed event, just cut down the rate. STFs should reward 10 FMs.

This is my idea to fix the issues people are

To the changes in the foundry I say this. make up your minds already please or remove the dang thing from the game. Second the only, let me say that again ONLY reason to take fleet marks out of investigate officer report is to slow yes SLOW fleet down. A rather common factor among mmos realy find any way you can to slow progression of players , fleets, or guild down to the point of a painful crawl. Why? Well the answer is actually quite simple, it is to keep you playing. The longer it takes you to achieve a goal the longer you play the game the longer you play the game the more money the company potentialy makes from you. It is rely that simple.

also the only reason the foundry exists in the first place is Cryptic is to small of a company to add real content to the game. Look at the maps, all perfect rectangles. They are simply to lazy to add content of their own so they give players the ability to make up their own using stock npcs and items.

Well i can't say i am too happy with the patch,

STO at level 50 is now a grind fest and not much else. If i look at how many FM i need to get what i am working towards for FSB and then the amount of dil that i need to buy fleet item, the the Rom marks and the Omega marks, i think that i will just end up playing the same 5 or 6 missions all the time only way that i will be able to work it,

so when i finish work come home have me tea i will log on to STO and play the same thing every day, NO I DON'T think i will, I am not in to grinding all the time and that is what i am going to have to do, that would be fine for a few days but OMG if that is your plan give us a decent expansion pack, Cos lets me honest the game is not that big at all, and repetitive grind is going to alienate a lot of people,

As a Company Director I would never treat my customers this way, Get a clue! I gave you some of my hard earned money well if i had know that you where going to give us this i would not of, I have decided that for me anyway I will give you one week to sort out something so that this game is not a boring grind, if you do not i will go back to playing SWTOR at least they give new content and 8 different story lines AND much better customer service.

Your with hopes that you get a clue and make this game worth playing and worth paying for. I got Charged an extra ?1.00 for buying ZEN as on over seas transaction I would tell you how upset that made me on principle Another joke from STO and it ripoff merchant owners and producers

and i would like to say that it may be a good idea if the writers actually watched an episode or 2 of star trek cos it does not look like many of them have any idea about the universe of Gene Roddenbury.
