I understand changing some of the console icons, some of the new ones are nice but all of them? Some of the old ones looked cooler than the new ones. Also if this took one guy more than a day of work, I consider it a waste of resources, sorry.

Nice Bait-and-switch.
Meh, It's such a good ship as is, (The Elachi Monbosh Battleship). Being without the cloak, it never should have had in the first place, really doesn't take anything away for me. I still love it !
I can't really complain, seeing as how the both the KDF and Romulan timeships don't have cloaks either.... But that's another topic for another thread.

Nice job on the changes to the Subspace Integration Circuit console.
You did a good job preserving it's PVE usefulness, while making it a tad more balanced for the PVP folks. Win, win.
I can tell you from my limited experience with it, getting hit with it multiple times in a match really wasn't very fun at all. It sucked quite frankly.

most of the patch notes look good.

The only real question would be why dedicate the time to change the icon art in the first place? given the detail of some of those images I'm sure that took longer than a week to put together, change all the associations in the code to reference the new art icon AND check for errors.

I checked in with the team and they are aware and hope to have a resolution for it out in a future patch -- I don't have an ETA to provide, unfortunately...
That's good to hear. Could we get some updates on the other Tailor/Uniform issues like those featured in my thread? Perhaps an artist could stop by there and at least let us know they are aware of those too?

Thank you.

Nice Bait-and-switch.
Not bait and switch if the ship was never meant to come with the cloak in the first place.

You can proclaim that all you want, but it still wont change that fact..

Which is worse incompetence or dishonesty? Doesn't really matter to me they both are bad.

Wouldn't call it 'Bait & Switch' per se; but c'mon, it's not like the devs were designing this ship, and then, after release, suddenly went: "OMG! How did that cloak get there!?"

I actually agree on this ship not having a cloak; but that decision should have been made prior to release. And not having done so is simply sloppy, and only serves to aggravate people who already bought it.

My point of view on the Monbosh

It didn't list getting cloak in the Dev Blog, the escort doesn't have a cloak.

The cloak was obviously never intended which is why it's being changed.

If you purchased the Monbosh mainly because it had cloak. IMO at that point, you really don't see the value of the ship itself. Cloaking is nice, but not really needed for cruisers.

-----------------------------------------------------

And as usual, my post about the KDF Boff reward costume has been ignored again. I do hope the devs understand this only fuels the "Devs are Anti-KDF" argument. I've been complaining about this bug for months.
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.

A cloaking device doesn't just stand up and sneak itself onto a ship (although if a dev tells me Rom snuck a cloaked cloaking device onto the ship I might forgive them).

It was placed on that ship ... wait for it ... INTENTIONALLY. It's on ships already purchased on Holodeck, and its being removed. Pretty standard definition of bait and switch. Although this one is a little more blatant than the usual cycle of "release ship with awesome features ... remove awesome features".

Please tell me it was an accident so I can mock the complete naivety of such delusions Better yet just give me what you are smoking ......
