I agree, they make it more competitive than it needs to be, particularly for a game where you're supposed to work together. That said the CE is a competition and if I'm not winning I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong. Victory is life.

Thanks for ignoring Cruisers and Science Ship captains, Cryptic.



EDIT: Seems Branflakes Misunderstood, this is about the First Place Trophy / Accolade you get doing Fleet Actions.

And that STO has evolved to where its about DPS and Heal Spamming.


Mate I've scored first in the KDF Mirror Carrier, the Jem Dread and, a Wells time ship.


Your argument is invalid.

Keep your heals cycling and FAW or CSV. those little shards may not count for a lot of points but when you're destroying them ALL you're climbing the ranks.

I did not see this mentioned before but are you only awarded a Shard once a day?

Every 20 hours so it will take 11 days and 16 hours minimum to get all 14 Shards. Will take most people 14 days to get it.

A vesta is an escort with what little science has to offer stacked on top of it.

Your argument is invalid.
And how is my argument invalid when you are flying DPS heavy ships?

In fact, many people are advocating flying these ships.

Doesn't always work when there are a couple of other Escorts there using the same technique.

And today I've gotten First place on two mules with common equipment.

I never said it was impossible, but their scoring system really doesn't benefit Cruisers and Science ships like they should. And those who are wanting the CE Trophy, won't get it. Which would be nice if there was alternate ways of getting it.

For example, in Winter Wonderland in the PvP Race, you could get it immediately getting first place, or getting it after a couple of runs. This is what Cryptic should do. Because there are obviously still problems with the new scoring system.


Just be nice if there was alternatives than having to struggle for that one thing.

Azurian, you seem like a good guy, so I'll tell you, you're worried about nothing. CC is ridiculously easy. If you've got an "OK" build you can easily get 1st in a pug.

Heck, I get 1st in private matches with my fleet. So it's definitely possible to get the accolade in a cruiser, or any ship- one of my fleeties has gotten 1st several times in an Atrox.

So here's some proof if you'd like.

I've only managed to come in first place once so far, with my Fed Science character. Trouble is, he flies a Wells class, so there's nowhere for him to put the trophy! >_<

This character is why I don't play my Romulan any more. Tovan Khev is NOT my BFF! Get him off my bridge!
