I appreciate the desire for a tournament, but a full tournament and a quick, hour-long shuttle event with 2 timeslots that is casual for a weekly community event are two very different things I'm not opposed with helping support a tournament, but it's not something I can pursue at this exact moment in time due to various reasons.

Cheers,

may we inquire to what those reasons may be?

since they are various, maybe just 1 or 2 of them might clue us in on why.... even if just a little bit.

Probably something to do with an expansion coming out in 2 weeks. Just a hunch.

Time, really. With the upcoming expansion, it leaves very little time, and if I am going to be helping plan/ sponsor/ run a tournament, I'm going to be fully invested in it. Unfortunately, I can not commit to that investment at this moment. I really want to, though! It's something we can hopefully revisit in the not too distant future. Imagine all the tasks I'm undertaking to prepare for Legacy of Romulus, plus all of my normal tasks:

Hope you can empathize with me

You mean like the foundry contests that Cryptic run? Or how about the litracy contests that Cryptic runs? Oh and not to mention the random "Let's go to Quarks and RP" evenings.

Fact up first.
Didn't read did ya? You just saw what you wanted to see... I said "personally involved"...

Read up first.

You can have the last word if you want cause I am done... Make it a good one... Don't troll me too bad ok?

I will be there for sure! It will be a blast to skirmish with you all. Great idea! We should do this at least 2 days a week. It is a great event to get the members of the STO community together and active.

I had posted a message asking how to change to your shuttle, however after asking around I found out that you can still change to your shuttle and fly in sector space.
For those of you who never noticed the new active ship and shuttle button on the starship UI interface like me, its simple. Go to a place where you select your active ship, and look at the bottom left of the UI. You will see 2 buttons, one for active ship and one for active small craft. Select the small craft one and you can fly that shuttle in sector space.

Ditto.


Maybe DDIS and I, and maybe a few others should start it again
Come to think of it we should discuss a good five shuttle setup for pvp - builds and such, in the New PVP Help and Build Thread....
