Curse you Cryptic. I was looking forward to playing my last Mirror Universe Incursion Event, but you have to do the maintenance 1 hour early, thanks for nothing. Yeah yeah MUI staying but changed, blah blah blah. BTW there is nothing in 8.5 that remotely interests or of use to me.
Patch looks good Happy Faw & Crit is fixed! Cheers Brandon, Please convey thanks to your team for the hard work
yeah the patch looks really great. all we need now is a set of skills for every ship, or at least 2 set of skills... without it the new system of selecting your ship in the space sector is almost useless
If we all live in boxes that doesn't mean my box is the same color like yours
Wraith, today is Day 3. The daily freebies (a lvl 10 Fed ship, and a lvl 20 Klink ship) are currently free in the C-store. Since that's scheduled to end at 10am PST tomorrow, and since the maintenance is scheduled to overlap with that, Bran's recommending that everyone collect their ships before the maintenance starts at 6am PST.
For some reason, when i'd read this, my mind was registered it as "collect Day 4 rewards before the patch".
why only a 5sec debuff with the Biochemist doff for example using a mini gun it has a 2-3sec? spin-up before it starts firing so most of the debuff is wasted. was hoping for a 7-10 sec debuff duration especially since it no longer stacks.
15 minutes for Tour the Galaxy. We're gonna need that new ship and it's Lightyear Hop thing. I can complete it in, like, 16-17 minutes using my MVAE with Mk X Borg gear.
Yeah. My most basic Rep-gear setup for a cut-off point comparison:
Nebula ADV retrofit (no Oddy bonus)
Full Driver Coil skill
Mark XI core (no SSS, SSR)
Mark XI assimilated engine
Warp 20.93 sustained (when not in slipstream)
No DI (for testing)
No RP (for testing)
Capable of completing one of the most popular of the old short runs, a full eight times in the prior multi-circuit Tour. A complete long run / all sectors tour (minus Tau Dewa & tested today with good sector map load times) = approx. 16.5 mins.
With DI/RP handout and -possibly- a modified route (didn't do as much research as the old tour) I reckon I could shave a couple of minutes off. But that's still pushing the new limit, for a basic Rep-gear ship, without the addition of Tau Dewa and with no allowances for traffic problems: e.g. slow sector map load times; congested entry points (damn you Scimitars!); missing optimised U-turn points in Zeta Andromedae & Iota Pavonis; etc.
No Rep-gear, no chance!
