Good thing, too. If I was paying to not be able to play this, I'd be kind of pissed off.

Laggy as hell, but appears to be up now. THink we need a fleet leader to tweak permissions, as unless it's not working right, apparently need permissions to contribute to the fleet now?

Yeah, that's why I couldn't contribute on Tribble.

Yup, we need the fleet leader to enable "Manage Fleet Holdings" for Adjutants so they can start assigning projects. As for the rest of us, we need permission to "Donate to Fleet Projects" as well as "Buy from provisioned Fleet stores".

Half the problem is not that it "doesn't work", it's that thousands of people are trying to log in at the same time - essentially it's a DDOS attack caused by the very people Cryptic want to play their game.

Doesn't excuse not having good enough servers, clearly.

Well, looks like it's finally working now. Ready to contribute to the KDF starbase as soon as our fleet leader sets it up...

Not too happy that they changed the Kill 250 Tholians zonewide mission to a Get 250 Fragments... I am NOT good enough at the mining game to make it worthwhile attempting that. Oh well...

Sorry guys, couldn't get on last night. Will try to get on tonight and see if I can get the fleet permission and other settings sorted.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Thanks Trek !! I was hoping to see the starbase last night, but I can understand the login issues. I did a get a chance to do some of the new events.. colony invasion and starbase fleet escort (I believe that's what it's called). Anyway, a 20 man stf with everybody firing everywhere.. it did cause some lag and choppines. I also went a did a couple of the ground Tholian missions. I'm also not pleased about the increase from killing 100 Tholians to 250... that's going to take a while in one sitting. Overall though, from what I saw, season 6 is pretty decent, and now I can't wait for season 7 which is supposed to bring us more content.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

They also changed the number of contraband you need to turn in to the security officers to get 2000 dilithium in the DOff missions. It now requires 5 contraband rather than 3.

There were a pair of threads in the official STO forums with some venomous sentiment about the cost of fleet ships, even after grinding up the starbase tiers. The threads have either been moved or deleted, though. They were getting nasty. But it looks like you need 4 of the fleet ship modules, at a cost of 500 Zen each, plus the fleet credits to get a fleet ship. Unless it was already T5 in the C Store and you had already bought the original version, then it will cost you just one module.

I may have that information slightly wrong, but that was the gist I was getting.

This game can go to hell.

Between the Spyware (and trying to pass it off as a security measure! How stupid do they think we are?), P2W, absolute lack of endgame, terrible story and countless bugs, it's really not worth my time, let alone my money.
Cryptic was never a serious company (compared with more solid players of the MMO field), but before the PWE buyout they seemed somewhat less cynical.
This game's only saving graces were the Trek universe and the somewhat fun space combat, and the novelty of those is bound to wear at some point.

Is there a trick to the Tholian Incursion mission? I keep burning up, even if I equip an environmental suit (orange).

Did you activate the suit? I kept taking damage when I first tried it and that was the problem.

Yep, just suit up and activate before you head out. I think it's fun! It felt a bit like Starship Troopers to be honest.

Now, can we get someone on the KDF side to open up the Holdings?
