I assume it will be a mini campaign consisting of 1 or 2 missions, and of course a romulan lockbox with some worthless crap inside.... As usual the Devs dont focus on the imba-problems what ruins pvp (or the game itself), but try to sell some lockboxes or Lobi store items (which get nerved after few weeks anyway, to sell new items to the crowd). Thats the system behind it....
I don't think they'd be hyping it this much if they didn't think they could deliver on it.
They hyped a ton about all the "great things" that were coming for the KDF in Season 4 too. look what that got.
I personally take EVERYTHING he says with much skepticism, after having him admit that he wasn't telling us the "whole story" on PWE's stance on KDF I don't think he can be trusted. Just putting my thoughts out on it.
Also remember he wants to be judged on his track record on the KDF. Well, take a look.
Personally I am hoping this year is a turning point for STO. Cryptic did just get a number of extra employees, so the Dev team should be able to get a lot more work done this year. At least, I'm hoping they do.
