Seems, like a Passive/Aggressive Project this time.


Second!

Just a heads-up that this is actually the final Embassy project we have lined up. Starbase projects also finished with the last one, and we may or may not have more projects in the future for these two holdings. We do have another fleet holding planned, but it won't be released until some point after the expansion launches.

Also, we're working out details on our next featured project rerun promo. As soon as we have more information to share about it, we'll be sure to post.

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=

I'm indifferent about these featured projects at the best of times - given that they're extraordinarily overpriced for what you actually get - but I must say that with less than a month until LoR releases, I honestly couldn't care less about this one.

Part of why I say that is because these featured projects don't really mean much to most fleets because most of the time, only members of the fleet will ever visit the Starbase or Embassy. Perhaps if the system were improved so that Fleet Starbases weren't located in their own private system and instead spread out across the quadrant, and could be used by any Starfleet captain as a place to re-supply, change ships etc. (they'd be able to buy standard gear and have access to a dilithium and EC vendors, as well as a commodities trader, but wouldn't be able to buy from the Starbases owners provisioned stores, for example). If this was the case, then maybe making our starbase look a bit more impressive might be worth it, as well as making the starbases more of a hub for players.

Personally, it feels like a Dev blog wasted which could have been used to shed some more light / tease some more of Legacy Of Romulus features. But that's just me.
Iconian? A label created by the Dewans to give voice to their destruction.
In the end, what they chose to call us is irrelevant.
We simply... are.

Wrong Blog type. Should be a LoR Blog with more info on Changes, like the faction mission progression changes.

Argh! This is the LAST project?!? Ugh. I ship out for military training tomorrow and will miss out on the LAST project?!? I hope the project rerun doesn't happen until late summer when I return, so that I can pick up this last project. I've done all of the others (FED) so far.

Based on three years of playing this game...
I believe there is very little you have to worry about.

Just about everything has returned in one way or another.
