Another piece of pristine, bug free content. Thanks Cryptic!

I also bought this and the numbers match exactly to my patrol escort but the shields collapse around 3x as fast, not what i paid for, hopefully this bug won't last too long.

Everybody can relax, I found the "new ship". Needs some suspension work and shocks. Brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear-end.

How much?

About $20

Also new rings, mufflers, a little wiring.

On a lighter note, the fluffy dice still work

I know these are bugs, and therefore should be fixed. I won't argue with that.

That this is the way the ships -should- have been designed to be (the lack of ability to take damage and heal), however, I will wish would have been intentional. That is, after all, what a Glass Cannon ship is supposed to be, not a ship that should be trying to sustain damage. That is the job of Cruisers, and the point of having a Cruiser in a mission with you.

But, as we can see by the number of people who are commenting that their Andorian Escorts should tank too, I know expecting this to actually ever be implemented is whistling in the wind.

In other news, Andorians announce plans to send recalled ships to QA for further review.

In other, other news, everyone who purchased an Andorian ship collectively wondered where QA was before the ships release?

And finally, in other, other, OTHER news, Andoria released the names of the QA panel who will be investigating recent issues with their newest ship product line. The QA team is headed by Bigfoot, with Nessie, the Easter Bunny, and the Chubacabra as associate members.

I kid because I love.

That's too bad, I'll probably go ahead and wait to see if the bugs are fixed before I get them then. I guess the Andorians are having a pay to beta test .

Dan Stahl:

As much as I like Star Trek Online, I find it shameful just how bad Cryptic's QA team is. I remember last year (and the year before that) where you was apologizing for "another bad release" and insisting you were working on improving the way you did things... It doesn't appear to me that have.

I know you guys really want to maintain your aggressive release schedule, and that's normally admirable, but not at the expense of basic quality. Seriously... How could you release a ship with these kind of bugs? Didn't anyone familiar with how the game works actually load the ship with crew and gear, and play with it? Take it for a test drive? Kick the tires, lift the hood, look at the tooltips, and stats? These bugs seemed pretty obvious and a fix was found in no time, it's not like it was some kind of deeply hidden problem.

Dan, you keep talking about how much bigger the team has got. Maybe it's time you get PW to invest in an experienced Chief Systems Analyst for their new Best Performer Game. Someone with a gaming background and leadership skills who can develop, train, and manage a proper QC Department. Give this person the time to test each build and, most importantly, the authority to stop it from rolling out.

At the very least, if you just can't stop the release, a warning "Known Issues" list and expected fix date should accompany the shotty work.

I work in IT and am responsible for running a lab, testing both software and hardware before it gets to the field. I would have been fired long ago if I allowed these kind of mistakes to repeatedly make it to production.

I can't believe you keep letting it happen Dan. I'm very disappointed.

So sad. Just so sad.
