I was lucky enough to be chosen to play the beta test of LoR and thank you for it.
I loved the new singularity drive and new powers they come with. But I can't help thinking that these new powers don't require a sci,eng or tac slot to use them where the fed and Klingon ships need to surrender the above slots to Equipt special powers.
Is it possible to have a special console slot on every fed and Klingon ship to balance this out a little bit.
In a previous ASK Cryptic, you said that you working on the possibility of cancelling Reputation projects. I have accidentally started a Crystalline Catastrophe assignment I now can't complete... any chance I can stop that? I'm worried it might stop me from being able to participate in the next event on my main character.
My question is about Dilithium Ore and Refined Dilithium.
As a gamer I know that those that work on game development have to keep the player-based economy under control. I also know that you would prefer that players purchase the ZEN and use that to exchange for Refined Dilithium. This is great for those that can afford to do so. I also know that you have the option for getting ZEN from surveys and Special Offers. This is also a great idea. However, due to being on a limited income, I am unable to purchase ZEN and I do not qualify for surveys and Special Offers.
This leaves me with getting Dilithium Ore from doing Dailies and other in game options, like the recent Crystalline Entity Event. I can easily get more then the amount of Ore to be Refined everyday. The question is this : How about making the amount of Ore received from Dailies, STFs, Special Events, and DOFF assignments be limited to the 8,000 cap? This would make it less likely for players to have more Dilithium Ore then they can Refine each day. I currently have enough Ore to refine for the next 11 days, provided I do not do any other dailies, or anything else that would give me Dilithium Ore. Also, if is not possible to make the intake of Ore match the Cap on Refining Ore (8,000 per day) until you erase the stockpiles of Ore that players have, Can you convert the current Ore players have stockpiled into Refined please? (At least before the new expansion goes live?)
Firstly, thanks for my question being answered last month!
Ok, on to business, couple of things:
1) Will we be seeing a featured episode series this year at all?
2) Can the Federation have a ship solely devoted to warfare, a dreadnought perhaps with having wings of fighters?
3) Any plans to give more attention to the Foundry and specifically its authors as although the Spotlight is a good thing, perhaps a system of where an author is currently a silver, if there is mission is deemed good enough they are given lifetime subscriber?
