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

So i take it i have to be in a fleet to do those new fleet missions in the PVE menu....and then i have to buy stuff from the c-store for the fleet.

It's all a but confusing to say the least.

You don't have to buy anything from the C-store for the fleet. Being in a fleet that has completed various tiers of their starbase will enable you to purchase some new stuff in the c-store, but those purchases are optional.

If your fleet ever tells you you have to make a purchase, and you're not comfortable with that, there are other fleets.

Basically fleets now get to build a starbase in Eta Edriani. In order to build the starbase, fleet members need to contribute all sorts of resources such as Self Sealing Stem Bolts, Crafting particles, Duty Officers, Dilithium and "Fleet Marks" earned from the new fleet actions. Nothing in the C-Store is required to build the starbase. In return for their contributions, fleet members get Fleet Credits which can be used to buy better ships, buffs or the ability to call in support in the new fleet events.

The only time something from the C-Store is required is when you want to build an advanced "Fleet Ship". In exchange for 4 Fleet Supply Modules from the C-Store, you can build an advanced ship of your choice in the starbase's shipyard.

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

Ok thanks very much for that.....it was somewhat confusing, i have only really played this game on single player since launch and never touched the whole fleet or PVP things yet since STO launched.

I suppose i will have to now if i want to access the new stuff like those missions and fleet stuff.

Anyway thanks for the info, its much appreciated.

Oh and are you guys taking anybody on or are you full up?

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

Normally I cut Cryptic a lot of slack on this kind of thing because it's an f2p game, but this is absurd. Seven bucks for a per character item that is little more than a costume unlock? Screw that.

Fair enough, but STO at least gets nominated for this stupid thing.

I have no problem paying 7 bucks for it. It's really not that bad a price.

Our doors are always open. Just give us your character's name@account and we'll add you to the fleet.

Just so you know we're pretty casual and are just patching up bits and pieces of our starbase whenever we can. We'll have a great starbase eventually, but it will take time. So if you're looking for a fleet with a top of the line starbase, we're not it.

If it was an account unlock, I'd agree; but it's per character.

So? That means you can buy them for in game currency on the Exchange or trade for them. Unlike account wide unlocks.
