For an announcement? Marketing and all, building up excitement, forum hype and blogging on specialized website...

It is the countdown for when Cryptic gets their New Romulus coffee mugs.

revealing what the update is all about.

we usually know well in advance what is coming before it hits tribble. at the moment we know very little. most of it is speculation. if it is a romulan faction that is a huge deal and needs time to be promoted before we even see it on tribble.

if the update launches mid may, then dont expect tribble to happen much before mid april.

the countdown will also end about 6am their time. that is well off when they are even in the office let alone their usual tribble patch times.

there may be some minor content hitting tribble in march if its ready, but it wont be significant. that's potentially 2 months before its officially launches. you cant make such a huge update by mid march.

edit - not to mention in game development you try not to give yourself hard targets to hit. there is never any guarantee you can hit tomorow's date let alone have something planned 3 weeks in advance.

They turned the Client into a ticking time bomb for the KDF since Klingons don't understand the function of a count down...See death of first Federation Enterprise

I personally assumed that the commander was the only one who understood English and recognized it was a countdown.

Porthos is not amused.

Ummm, Season 8 isn't until the end of Summer, maybe even sometime in the fall. They would not put any sort of countdown for anything that is 6-8 months away.

OOOOhhh, you're talking about the MAY UPDATE. Well now, at the end of the countdown they drop the big bombshell on us that they are going to completely replace the KDF with the RSE and give the Romulan fans 3 years to enjoy their faction and let Klingon fans sit silently on their hands and wait.

p.s. more information about what Cryptic is planning for the May update will probably be released on March 21st.

Real money on "The Announcement" as to what they are planning for the large May update and probably a Teaser-Trailer.

Its just a countdown letting us know when they'll actually release information rather than hint at it.

Probably some big announcement that will solve all the speculation as to whats coming and get right down to whats important. Taking bets on what its going to break...

I've been playing KDF since Season 3. Season 7 KDF is BETTER than the Feds were in season 3. Of course Feds have more stuff. They always have. But the KDF has enough now to be fully playable.
