Do you really want your message to your players be "come back in three months"?
That IS pretty much what he said, besides lying through his TEETH about how much Di gets refined a day. Problem is, if he says "come back in three months", they may NEVER come back. I very nearly decided to leave, as did some of my friends. We're tired of Cryptic backhanding us because we're not in Jupiter Force or UFP. If I WANTED to be in a big fleet,I'd be in a big fleet. I WANT to have a close group of friends that play together as a fleet, and Cryptic REALLY seems to want to punish us for it.

Dear Cryptic;

Please stop telling us how YOU want us to play and let us play OUR way. It's better for business.

Sincerely, everyone you pissed off in the last two days.

I do appreciate your prompt reply, Bran.

I just hope that this issue is not being put on the back burner.

You have, as another poster has said, an open revolt against these changes.

We now have had two 70+ page threads on this issue, with 99% strongly opposed.

Some have cancelled subs, some will be boycotting zen purchases until it is rectified.

All I ask is that cryptic acknowledge the issue is urgent and give us a timetable for a fix that is not months away.

A statement addressing the issue later today would be very welcome.

Can we PLEASE keep this particular thread related to the screenshot? I understand everyone's disappointment but, this thread is about the upcoming Andorian ship. Let's please keep it that way. There are plenty other threads to complain about the FM situation.

And onto the topic. Ship looks great! I too hope that keep the original skin for one of the variants.

It's too much of a coincidence that the screenshot was released just one day after the fleet mark issue. In a way, Cryptic is trying to draw attention away from complaints about small fleets and the need for a quick replacement for the fleet mark rewards removed from IOR's. These are very legitimate concerns that new shinies aren't going to make go away. Anyways, I'm done commenting about that.

Back on topic: I will admit the ship looks amazing, but I do wish we had some new content to try it on.

We knew from last week the ship was going to show up today.

Again, I understand that. As an owner of a small fleet (four or five active with three more semi-active) I am not that concerned with the change. I do agree that an alternative should have been added at the same time as the removal. I just don't see the need to derail another thread over it.

Coincidence? JamJamz has been posting "leaks" before the Feb 14 patch went live and this is a normal Friday Screenshot event, but akin to the first Ambassador screenshot.

Still, I'm glad for the Andorian fans, the Enterprise fans, and the Escort fans now have their 3-ship bundle (Odyssey for the Engineers and Vesta for the Science).

I think everyone is expecting too much, too soon. Even if Cryptic were to (internally) admit there is a problem, It is going to take time to formulate a solution. At best we are talking a week maybe two.

That is the reality of it. These things are not quick fixes, You have to actively look a the problem. Formulate what you want and what you don't want.

Cryptic has said from the beginning that Fleet Marks where meant for group content (as only Fleets need them) so you are NEVER going to get them added back to foundry missions. What they are going to do to mitigate this and help out smaller fleets in no small discussion and isn't going to be settled in a weekend.
