How is this more then just FM being taken away? This is exactly what it is.

If they had any more news to say, they'd have said so. Posting something else that is ready to be released in a few days does not automatically mean they are intentionally trying to distract us.

Really, just stop point-black assuming the worst: it gets you nowhere.

And yes, I'm serious here
Exactly, THANK YOU!

Also the stats blog might be coming tomorrow

Nope, it's more than that. People are tired of grinding the same content. People are tired of bugs that continue to go unfixed. People are tired of lockboxes being passed off as contents. People are tired of artificial time gates. People are tired of moneygrabs instead of new content. And people are tired of the CDF coming to their overlords defense everytime a new shiny comes out. "How dares you criticize Cryptic. We have new ships to do what we've been doing for the past 3 years."

The mega thread actually lays stuff out far better than I have. Feel free to enlighten yourself.

Going back to the ships, I can't wait to see the stats on these! I hope they'll be as awesome as I think they should be. My only concern is price.

Considering the whole bundle angle, it's mostly likely the same as the Odyssey/Bortasqu'/Vesta bundles: 2500 for a single, 5000 for all 3.

I'm just curious about the 3 consoles that will probably come with the ships They did say the cannons would be a big part of the ship, so I wonder how the consoles with fit in with this design.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'.

maybe it won't bring a 3 piece console set, but a console+console+weapon set, or maybe a console+weapon+weapon set (we've seen that before, only not on zen store ships but in lobi store). i'll be actually more satisfied if my tip comes true, because my escort build don't have any extra console space to spare, especially not enough for 3 new consoles...

Hmm, good point: probably at least one of the set would be an experimental new weapon system, or a new version of an older weapon.

I'm thinking they'll be at least one console though, but one new weapon as well. I hope the stats blog comes soon

Here's to hoping we get some Andorian torpedoes/weapons! (So we don't have to use the old crappy Blue Tetryons for authenticity)

Maybe like the Galor, you get a couple of Andorian cannons/turrets which you can also buy in the DIL Store?

Also maybe known as "SFC3"

When i read stuff like:
Quote:
Nobody can say "no" to a ship with two huge wing-mounted cannons, especially three of them. The brainstorming meeting about the ship was actually pretty easy, everyone agreed that the cannons were going to be an important part of the gameplay of these vessels,
... i get headarche.

Is there anything besides cannon weapons and ships with even more excessive firepower interesting to you?

What about making some ships like the Galaxy Class at least a bit PLAYABLE?
Seriously, instead of introducing another "cool" gun overloaded Escort, you should focus on making iconic ships like the Galaxy Class a bit more fun to fly.
I don't know if you ever tested it, but especially the Galaxy Class is just a catastrophe in your game.

Personally i stopped taking this game for serious a long time ago.
I think it is a open secret that STO is just a Star Trek theme park, so where is the problem in making all ships fun to fly, not just escorts?

I have finished.

a special andorian dual heavy cannons and a torpedo (please be quantum, please be quantum) or a turret would be nice.
