They almost never add bugs to the "known issues" column unless they're either urgent (i.e. requiring a hotfix) or a solution is being worked on or in internal testing.

This is what they said about T4 ships when the game first came out and people complained about not having the hero ships available for endgame. Soon after, the hero ships were among the first new T5 ships added to the game.

You get way more mileage out of your tac slots by putting in consoles that buff the damage type you're using (phaser damage, disruptor, plasma, etc) All you ever really "need" in your Sci slots are shield regen or shield capacity consoles and your engineering slots are a mixed bag.

All they needed to do was just say "You can upgrade your ships to T6" instead of "T5U", and then just mention that the new ships will have an extra trait, boff power and access to specialists. There's no difference beside the point, and the T6 "exclusives" really aren't that big a deal.

So in the Tier 5u vs. tier 6 discussion we misinterpreted the issue of the star ship trait. Tier 5u will both not get the starship traits unlocked at tier 5 ship mastery and they will not receive any ship trait slots. Ship traits themselves are reserved for tier 6.
This is made clear in a dev post here.

she could be alive, they say it has been 32 years since voyager

in end game, it was 16 years older janeway said it would take them from the point she arrived at, and 10 years had passed after that when she decided to go back in time. so it's only a few years after that supposed timeline, so janeway could certainly be an admiral still (which she probably is at this point, even in the prime timeline)

the future part of Endgame was set in 2404, and they had the same uniforms as in the future part of All Good Things... which was 2422. but the Countdown comic had Data and Picard wearing Sierra or Jupiter or something so I guess time travel changes Starfleet uniform codes. Or they'll go back to the Endgame/AGT uniform after a few years of Odyssey.

I think there was a reference in dialogue somewhere to Janeway teaching courses about anti-Borg tactics at Starfleet Academy. (maybe the tutorial when you have to deal with them at Vega and Elisa Flores is like "don't worry, just remember what we learned in class: shoot to kill!"?), so, uh... yeah. something.

Factions get you different ships. Romulans can choose from a select few Fed / KDF ships depending on which way they go as they level up, but no end game ships from those factions.

Choosing alien gives you more control over what skills you want, and some other ones have bonuses to their space stats. Unless you're a min maxer, it doesn't really matter too much except in a few places in the dialog for flavor.

Most people don't have 20 upgradeable ships. If they do I would imagine they would upgrade 1 or 2 (lock box ships get upgraded for free right?) favorite ships and maybe get a new ship every once in a while.

You talk about the cost of expansions in WoW and it's comparable. New expansion is $50 plus $15 a month to play. New expansion in STO comes out all you really need to do is buy a couple of ships. You have the option to upgrade old ships for a small fee which is actually better than most MMOs where new content comes out and your old stuff is obsolete.

You should never really invest in anything in a game thinking that what you are investing in will be viable forever. If this is your first MMO I could see how you could make that mistake but anyone that has spent a decent amount of time on any other MMO should have seen this coming.

This begs the question of cost.

Look at what we have, 2500 Zen for Lv 50 T5 ships, what level does T6 opens now? Lv 50 along with the system so it seems we get a ship that would out of the box be obsolete because T6 opens at lv 50, its paying twice.

Then what cost is T6? if its 3000 Zen that according to the standard progression then paying 500 Zen is to basically paying a for a T6 ship except its neutered, there is no saving .. no "fraction of the cost of a T6 ship", at that point all T5 ships are irrelevant for new players, they will cease to sell because they are worst.

The whole ballroom dancing seems to me they have no idea what the fuck they want to do, on one hand its clear Geko just wants to do at T6 what he already did at T5 because he have no idea of what else to do and on the other hand they are frighted DR launches with maybe 7 ships at T6 and nobody will bother with their Adventure Zones, Fleet Actions and Battlezones because simply they would be ask to throw everything away and start again.

The gear is caused because their stupid stubborn decision to keep Omega Gear as the highest grade tier, until Dyson all other sets were inferior and even Dyson just reached some parity, Undine isnt better either ... for years we were told one thing, you level to 50, you get a T5 ship and you work for your STF sets, now they want to do what? do they even know?

It will be T5u, but as has been mentioned numerous times by the devs and implied by the way Crypdick designs content, neither T5u nor T6 will be absolutely necessary to complete the new content in DR. This is a big difference from back when I raised in WoW and farming the previous tiers for gear was practically mandatory just to tackle the next tier.

It's simply not their style to use difficulty as a content gating mechanism. Or maybe it is their style and they're really not very good at doing it. Wither way, I see no reason to believe I won't be able to fly anything I currently fly and not be able to succeed.

They're also useful alternatives to the freebie ships, and in some cases are better or more fun than the freebie ships. Case in point: the mirror Mogai and Kitang. Further, in some case they're worthwhile ways to access ships or ship skins that are otherwise only accessible through fleet or store purchase, like the mirror Rhode Island, mirror saber, or getting multi vector mode on a ship with patrol escort layout.

Mirror romulan ships give an absolutely beautiful (take a close look at it in various lightings) paint job, despite the initial rustish-red look. It's a nice one to have for a fleet DD or such.

However, yeah, the mirror ships themselves are nothing but level 40 model swaps: Your Deep Space Science Mirror is a Recon Science Vessel, and on.

They have been making the mirror versions gradually more useful. The Kitang is a good indication of this. The point about the skins is also good. When I started playing I hated the patrol escort skin and the mirror patrol was a godsend.

>I fly them about as much as I fly my Fleet Avenger.
Disgusting...

but I fly a mirror Kitang, Vo'quv, and Dhelan on my alts because I'm too cheap to buy C-Store ships or grind for individual fleet ships. The mirror heavy cruiser sees some action on my main but that's just because it still has the constellation saucer at that gives me a chub.

500-1000-1500-2000-2500

Thats the cost of T1 to T5, T5 is separated in 2000 and 2500.

Are you going to say that T6 is going to cost what? the next is 3000 and what the update token cost is "500 to 1000" and I am not seeing T6 costing over 3000 zen, if they put 4000 Zen I shall call then money grabbing assholes that can go fuck thenselves.

So assuming normal cost progression thats a safe bet, its 3000 so that means the token if at 500 zen is a equal cost for most ships since 2500+500=3000, if 1000 zen then its over T6 cost unless T6 is 3500 Zen were it would be equal.

See, I did the math ... you apparent are seeking refuse in "we dont know yet" because clearly they haven said the token is somewhere from 5$ to 10$ that its 500-1000 Zen.

>>78411754

The more logical would be simply make T-5U as new standard for 2500 Zen ships with the upgrade token for the 2000 Zen ships.

That I would not have much problems with, what I have is what I see then asking me the cost of a T6 ship because I brought a T5 ship.

Only the fed ships are cheap. The mirror rom and klink ships are in the millions, sometimes even the current lockbox ones. Fed ones are cheap because 95% of people open boxes with fed characters, and most people also main fed, so that's what they use their c-store and lockbox ships on.

Go back to 4th grade.

It means if you buy an upgrade, if you have and/or get that ship on another character, you will get an upgraded version.

?You have to buy the ship every character, you only have to bu the upgrade once.

Why would you think that? They've always been T5, since they were around long before T6 existed.

Hell, they're barely younger than T5.5 (fleet) and only recently got fleet models themselves.

It would be a pretty big oversight on Cryptic's part if they allowed already existing universal seats to work with the new Boff type, especially on vessels that aren't supposed to be able to use them. It's a foregone conclusion that universal slots won't work with the new Boffs.

There's only ONE ship trait and you don't get that until Ship Mastery 5. SM 1-4 is just passive abilities. The trait at SM 5 is slottable just like any other trait.

Was on the forums, yeah i know LOL FORUMS!, and someone did the match on what tier 14 consoles will likely be given the consistent increase throughout tiers 1-12.

Engineering
-Booster Modulator, Plasma Distribution Manifold, Field Emitter, Injector Assembly: will go from 4 -> 4.5 power
-Neutronium Alloy: will go from 20 - 22.5 DR
-Tetraburnium Hull Armor, Ablative Hull Armor: will go from 33.8 -> 37.5 DR
-Diburnium Hull Plating, Electroceramic Hull Plating, Parametallic Hull Plating: will go from 40 -> 45 DR
(Assuming you had three of them, this would be a grand total of 2.3, 2.2, and a 1.5% increase in armor rating respectively.)
-RCS Accelerator: will go from a 40 -> 45% turn rate increase.
-Emergency Force Fields: will go from a 40 -> 45% crew resistance rating(lol crew numbers)
-SIF Generator: will go from a 20 -> 22 + hull repair.
-PS Flow Regulator: will go from a 80 -> 90% power transfer rate increase.

Science
-Skill based science consoles: Will go from 30 -> +33.8
-Biofunction Monitor: will go from 40 -> 45%
-Field Generator: will go from 20 - 22.5%
-Shield Emitter Amplifier: will go from 15 -> 17%

Tactical
-Generic weapon type consoles: will go from 20 -> 22.5%
-Weapon specific consoles: Will go from 30 -> 33.8%

Which, to put into math for you, is a change of
-Generic Weapon Console Before: 973.56/778.8
-Generic Weapon Console After: 993.84/795.02
-Specific Weapon Console Before: 1054.69/843.7
-Specific Weapon Console After: 1085.52/868.36
(This math was done at 84 weapons training and energy weapons skill level, at 125 ship weapon power, with no +damage consoles, and a Counter command rep beam array as its base)

Going engineering means your captain skills can be enough to self-heal, meaning you can gear your engineering boffs to DPS. Going science also gives you some self-healing and durability buffs to do the same, and gives you a couple nice enemy debuffs, along with the best fleet support variant in the game. Your captain career is basically a slightly better boff slot, your ship choice matters a lot more.

Plus being eng makes ground missions a lot more bearable.

So I took a quick read through of the OP and all the associated materials, and I've just got a few questions.

I've not played since Season 7 (I think?), and what I'm really wondering is just kind of "what do I do?" It feels like a weird middle ground between everything looks the same but at the same time there's a bunch of new things, and I'm just a little bit lost.

On a side note, I remember being quite pleased that I completed that set of items that put Borg bits all over your ship, and I'm wondering if there's more of that. Also more Borg stuff in general, and Borg stuff that you can use in general. I really like the Borg.

More purple technicians because fuck you?
Get on the Doff colo chains
Want more of the item set?
Get cracking on the rep grind.
Want more ships no matter if regular or later the T6/T5U ones?
See the dil scrounging part for c-store ships, or try exchange PvP and foundry grind until you got the monies for lockbox ones.
Want to 100% optimize your one build to outdps them all? Welcome to grind for everything, forever.

Right now the crystal event is on, play that stuff 14x to get 50k dil and some so-so purple doff (it has a 20h cooldown, so it is JUST possible to still get it done I think)

It depends. I'm pretty sure the main difference is the hybrid boff. But since T6 ships only get +1 boff power, that means either the hybrid is a ENS, or they are replacing one of the other boffs with the +1 version. This could be a huge difference, or could be nothing much special. For example, let's say you compared the T5U Gal-R to a true T6 Gal-R, the hybird boff in any boff slot (remember, +1 to rank of the former slot) would turn it from completely useless to only mostly useless, a huge bonus. However, comparing a T5U BoP with all universal slots to a true T6 BoP, replacing one of the universals with a specialist, is going to potentially take away some real utility.

I tend to start by doing whatever event is on, since they are only available for a set time. And since I have loads of chars that alone is often enough to take far more time than I should spend on one game.

More dil/zen is never a bad idea, since Cryptic will always try to sell you some new shiny thing for it.
But most of all just do what you feel like, treating this shit like a fulltime job is IMO the quickest way to get sick of it.

No, there isn't more borg-looking stuff for your ship around aside from assimilated. Omega adapted does not give anything looks wise afaik.
If you do not mind spikes everywhere you could try to get one of the borg adapted tal-shiar ships through.
Oh, and do not even try for that borg prostheses ground stuff it is disappointing as fuck and you'll rue the investment.

you can grind up enough dilithium to buy it for free.

reach level 50, go to dyson battlezone and tag dinos all day every day until you get enough dil to buy 2500 zen on dil exchange.

then you can get your ship for free. and if you grind some more, you can also get the fleet module (500 zen or some 10 million ec on exchange), upgrade it to fleet quality for better stats, and after s10 is out you can buy yet another upgrade to bring it up to t5fu quality for even better stats.

be a good goy.

one round of dino tagging gives around 3k-4k dil, and lasts around half an hour or so. the biggest hurdle will be the 8k daily refinement limit.

you could skip some of it though and go straight for fleet version. if you get it off cstore, it costs 2500+500 for every fleet, but it's for entire account.

if you go for just fleet, it's 4x500 so only 2000 zen, and you can always buy the fleet ship modules off exchange if you have the ec.

the only difference is that if you get it off cstore, every one of your alts can get the fleet version for just 1 module, while going straight to fleet version means 4 modules every time you want another one.

Also.

Ships bought from C-store are unlocks, meaning that you can claim the ship on any of your alts after unlocking for as many times as you want, of course, your character must be able to use the ship, so klinks cant get intrepids and feddies cant get D'derixes.

Fleet ships are bought in a way where, if you throw your ship away, you have to buy it again and your alts also have to buy it separately.

to add to that, if you invest in the borg impulse engine from the omega reputation (it's around 900 omega marks, 32k dil and some ec as far as i remember) to speed you up in sector space, you could easily make 475k ec every day from tour the galaxy mission, and then supplement that with additional 200k or so from the foundry daily grinders.

if you get all 3 alts set up with that, you could grind on all 3 of them to buy 3 modules faster.

it'd take you maybe half an hour to an hour a day to finish it on all 3 free char slots.

that would mean after 20 days or so you'd have around 30 million ec, so 3 fleet ship modules.

then just get the fourth and you could get the ship.

the modules aren't bound so you could mail them to your main character.

you don't really need the account bank slots for that. you grind 10 mil on every alt and have them buy the fleet module, then mail it to the one who'll use it. modules are unbound, so they can be mailed freely.

if the people rage enough about the t6 vs t5u stuff, fleet module prices should drop below 10 million. they already went down about a million and a half last i checked. (9.5 mil now, so they're in a non-ec unlocked person's range)

i forgot about grinding up the 20k fleet credits though. that part is sometimes the most annoying, since usually all you can put into a fleet is either dil or doffs.

The problem is that none of it is in any way remotely necessary.

You can do the end game content with tier 4 ships and MK10 gear and do just fine.

Tier 12 items and fleet ships are already such massive overkill you can get 505+ damage Resistance without trying, and get like 900DPS.

the only thing that can do any real damage to a end game player are those fucking borg gates that manage to do like 50000000 damage per shot and that no amount of resistance will ever protect from.

It's stupid because comparing ships to character classes and talent trees makes no sense. They're in no way comparable. And equating that idea to ship upgrades and a new tier of ships, which aren't even fucking necessary in the first place, makes even less sense.

If your idea actually held water we'd be stuck with a strict Escort = DPS only, Science vessel = CC/Heals only and Cruisers = Tank only. Shit hasn't been like that in a looong time. Cruisers are just as capable of being DPS machines as Escorts and a smart player with a proper Boff layout and Doff procs can take a good Science Vessel and tank STFs.

It's a solid ship if you don't mind it having 3 tactical bridge seats(which means it's better it run torpedos on it). Turn rate is a little slower than than most escorts, but it has hanger pets and is almost as tanky as some cruisers. Calling it a 'flight-deck destroyer' might be the best descriptor.

It's not as purely offensive as some 'escorts', but it's by no means a slouch either.

On the contrary.
In STO, your ship is the framework upon which your abilities AND equipment are loaded and based upon.

It is your SHIP that determines the majority of your abilities (BOFF Slots).

It is your SHIP that determines your choice of equipment, and to a degree its restrictions (though those are very few, mostly in the dual-cannon type).

It is your SHIP that determines in large part whether or not you have pets, whether or not you are a big slow tanker or a fast little support thing.

Your captain brings a handful of abilities, but these work with any ship, and several are shared between all three types of captain anyways.

SHIP is far more of a character class in space than your captain can hope to be.

Just play as you like. the story content is all easy enough to be completed in pretty much any combination of build and ship you can think of, and you only need to worry about even the barest optimization once you hit level 50 and are ready to begin the rep and dilithium grind.

That said here's a couple of Do's and Don'ts to make your journey to 50 smoother.

>Do
Start using and getting used to the duty officer system early. It's a good source of profit and having lots of high-quality doffs is critical for high-end builds as well as eventually improving your farming intake in the future.

>Do
set your weapons to autofire by right-clicking their icons. That way you can concentrate on maneuvering and ability usage.

>Do
Save your money. Virtually nothing is worth buying before level 40 at the earliest

>Don't
Get frustrated early on. Low-level fights in STO are more boring and slow than most MMOs. Stick with it and the systems will open up

It sure is moreFUN with friends, but leveling up at the same pace is somehow even more difficult than in other MMOs.
Takes only one doff mission that your bro crits and you fail and you'll might stop being same level and able to enter the same episode he can for ex.

But you are totally fine as forever alone player who only teams for the PvE queues. Those are also mostly as social as buying food from a vendor machine really.

Storm Rider, a companion that can be claimed account-wide, gives power and recovery which are two stats useful to pretty much everyone. Naturally, I named mine L.A. Woman.

Game's gotten better if you want to give it another shot, it's what I play when STO's between major releases. Still nothing close to an actual D&D game in terms of mechanics but the gameplay isn't too bad and it retains the STO philosophy of none of the actual gameplay content being paywalled, just need to grind for gear.

Too bad the system is more and more paywalls, sure you get Dil but then again Neverwinter gives Dil by you simply showing up and press a button at a circle and their economy is beyond fucked.

What I fear is STO adopting Neverwinter model to a T, destroying the economy in the process ... sure you get a lot of D but when conversion is 500:1 and nobody is selling and everything worth a shit is beyond a paywall ...

The reason why Neverwinter's economy is fucked is a combination of a glut of Dil/AD and no decent sinks for it. You can just open the Gateway and script your way to 24k AD per character without logging into the game itself, and there's no fleet or reputation system like STO has. So I don't think STO is going down that route at all.

There is also the refine cap, dunno if neverwinter has something like that.
If you limited to ~8500 per day you can give out ore for every buttonpress and the market still won't be impacted all that much.

Good old technicians nightmare didn't really do shit to the exchange rates, IMO devs were only pissy that it allowed players to just log-in, refine and log out for months and so made their precious metrics look bad.

NW's is 24k per character per day, which means 500 AD/Zen is equivalent to 167 Dil/Zen. It's surprising they didn't raise the AD/Zen cap (max you can buy Zen for directly is 500 AD/Zen), but another issue is that NW's exchange uses AD, not gold like STO's uses EC, so people get around the cap by buying something on the C-store and then selling it for more on the exchange. Right now there's actually people making profits doing this, by buying Zen for 500 AD each, then selling something for more.

Basically, there's a bunch of individual reasons why Neverwinter's economy is fucked right now, none of which are present in STO so we're good. STO would need to add doffing to the gateway, add a bunch of doff missions with straight dil rewards (instead of contraband/prisoner rewards that you hand in for dil), switch the exchange to use dil instead of EC, get rid of all the juicy dil sinks in the rep and fleet systems, and add socketing that can only be improved by paying for refining items and guaranteed success items off the C-store.

Guys, i just had a crazy idea.
Feel free to shoot it down.

So, as we know, sci ships have the inbuilt ability to target certain parts of the enemy ship, similar to Boff ability that only upgrades your next attack into such.

So, what if, we had a battleship class ship that would automatically upgrade its next shot into beam overload attack or if armed with torpedoes, high yield shot.
Also, these would remain as such shots and be affected by other Boff abilities.
So, for example, you could fire beam fire at will with overload shots and with torpedoes you would shoot high yield shots while firing a spread shot.

To balance this, those ships would have limited weapon slots, lets say, 4 or 6, depending on how playtesting would go.

So, there was my crazy idea.
How do you like it?
