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

Still, for a sub-faction, level 1-40 exclusive mission content isn't too shabby. It's more than the KDF got at launch anyway!

Oh, and speaking of the KDF: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...11#post8902011

The new Klingon leveling progression will be available on TRIBBLE around the first week of May. We're in the process of readjusting all of the Klingon levels, moving episodes around, adding in the ships, and then adding in the new KLG episodes including the Nimbus adventure zone. Once we've finalized the final progression, we'll post it for you to play and see.

I got my Vesta two weeks ago for my new character and am loving it. Even though it is still using common white turrets and store bought deflector, shields and engines, its still putting out an amazing 4.8k dps an Infected Space Elite run.
4.8k dps,

I woldn't pay too much notice on what dps you get, its what actual damage you do to the enemy is what counts.

Done so many stf;s by now that I am cringing my teeth and hope we make it through when vesta, sovie, and other large ship shows up on our team, i am like, hope he is really good or we're busted.

Give me small tactical escort any day, I'll actually record few stf missions to show you what i am on about. Expecially when we're doing ISE, large be it Klingon, Fed, Domi, ships take like 50-70% more time to do same task someone with small defiant or a bug, really annoying when yo're pressed for time.


Also programs that do dps count are all rubbish, we tested few and all of them gave different results for the same mission, in one I cam 2nd and another i came 3rd and in one i came last, and we did KASE, btw I took left gates on my own before 3 players took right gates (20 seconds) and I still came 2nd and 3rd on dps count, not sure how you explain that, but I find it odd that little moi can do a job of 3 players, ok 2 and half, one player was doing it part time he was taking down probes and hitting gates.
Your assertion that dps parsers are rubbish is totally unfounded, and the reason is really simple. Your mistake is using KASE for dps parses.

The combat log generated by you is centered around your ship. Combat events that happen far from you will not be recorded in your own combat log but may be recorded on a teammate's combat log because he is nearer to the source of the combat event. This means that for a map such as KASE where the team is forced to split up, the combat logs for players on the left will end up being very different when compared with players on the right.

It is not the dps parser's fault. Even if you each used the exact same dps parser to parse your own KASE combat log, each person will still get very different dps figures.

This is why we usually only use ISE for dps figures and never use KASE or CSE.

I just want to say it is the player, not the ship. Take me for instance. I have 5 fed characters, each commanding a different ship including an Atrox, Armitage, Galor, Mobius and Chel Grett. Yet every single ship one of my ships easily out-damage the typical escort you find in pug STFs.

This is what you posted a few months ago after a couple of us including Timelord, Scout101 and syberghost tried giving you good advice in dealing with bad players on pug STFs rather than simply ragequitting and abandoning the remaining players.

Since then, you've gone back on your word by posting recruitment ads for your fleet and boasting in general about how your fleet is better than our TrekBBS fleet.

Now you claim you have a bunch of people in your fleet who looks up to you as the true leader. And yet, you want to leave the fleet because, in your very own words "My toon is set and really not sure I need anything".

Ragequitting an STF only affects 4 other players. Quitting on a fleet who looks up to you as the true leader affects at least a hundred other players. Not only that, from all you have said in your post it is clear what you really want to do right now is find a better fleet that has already reached tier 5 so you can get the uber items you want from their fleet store. Really? Is a bunch of virtual and thus ultimately worthless in-game items worth more than all the friends you have made in the fleet?

All I can say is you sir, are an irresponsible, antisocial, self-centered person. I am sorry for all the people in your fleet who looked up to you as a true leader and wished they know what you have posted here.

Fire Everything!

I've never tried a dps calculator, all I know is my forward cannons fire at over a thousand. Is that good? I think so. Am I wrong? I feel like I kick tones of ass when fighting.

BTW, I love my Trekk BBS fleet and am happy to wait for it to reach Tier 5. It's called solidarity.

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

Q: (felderburg) Will basic Romulan ships have the three standard variant, escort, cruiser, science?
Dstahl: Romulans have their own unique ship class, Warbirds, which is the first new ship class in STO. This new class uses singularity cores instead of warp cores and introduces new ship combat powers tied to the harnessed energy released by the singularity core.
Max-level Romulan Republic captains will find a nice variety of Warbirds that each gravitate towards a specific type of existing ship class and play style. There will be some Warbirds that lean towards existing classes (escort, cruiser, science, etc.) that players are familiar with, though they will all feel distinct in that they are from the new Warbird class.

Is anyone reading this as Warbirds are the sole class for the Romulans that have variations that lean towards different specializations like the Odyssey as opposed to classes for specific specializations like Defiant vs Galaxy vs Intrepid?

Pretty much.
So we will most likely get a chronological lineage of Warbirds (some formerly known as Bird of Preys), with uncertain appearance of the Romulan D7 battlecruiser which I expect maybe in the C-Store or not at all.
At Admiral level we will likely get one ship leaning toward science and one toward engineering I bet.
I fully expect the main role to be cloaked destroyers with slight tendency toward science or entirely multipurpose.

I guess that would explain why they said they only had to create 2 new ships (since you've already got the Bird of Prey, Morgai and D'deridex hulls to fill 3 of the ship tiers).

ETA: Random point, just played the fire caves mission and seems the pathfinding for the away team has been fixed.

You forgot the Scimitar, though I am not sure she qualifies as a Warbird.

I bet you that'll be a C-store for Level 50 captains, if it's ever made available for flying.

Maybe that'll be something added to the last tier of the Romulan reputation system, since they're adding in playable Remans as an unlock in there too, based off this comment anyway:

Q: (kekvin) What races (species) will be in the Romulan faction?
Dstahl: At the launch of Legacy of Romulus there will be Romulans, Remans, and Alien-Gen hybrids. Reman species are an account unlocked reward that will be added to the New Romulus Reputation or available for purchase. Alien-Gen hybrids may only be created by Subscribers or Lifetime members. In the future we will be adding more species to the Romulan faction.

Where did I post any recruitment adds and compared my current fleet with trekbbs????

U're starting to piss me off really piss me off, you know jack shit about me and talking utter nonsense, on any other forum I'd tell you where to go, but keeping with decorum i'll try to sustain my self, in real life i would be a lot less diplomatic. ]

As to me getting better gear or what is so bad about wanting better items??? Perhaps i want something from a fleet i join instead of only giving, after all i have given loads to my current fleet but feel that i need to move on as my time is taken over by fleet issues i can't really dedicate my time to anymore and want to move on to either better fleet where i can get elite gear or just play low profile game with no fleet action hustle and fleet administration issues. As to me being antisocial and what ever you've said is utter nonsense, you have no idea who and what I am, you jump to conclusion like a presumptuous self centered feel hurt sheep! I am not anti social, and self centered, I just want more game play for my self and less fleet issue hustle, I've been in this fleet for 6 months, its fine time for a change, and only issue i need to resolve is, do i go solo or join another fleet that has less demanding schedule where i can play low profile role, i.e join in stf when i choose to and ignore leadership nonsense and fleet administration hustle.

In short I am stressed out with the mess of a large fleet and its giving me a headache, and yes many fleet members know it cause I've told most of them, I am just not sure what to do, and yes the fleet leadership also knows about it, they know i am stressed out and they;ve told me perhaos take a leave of the game for few weeks, which to me looks tempting as well.

As to my posting on this forum, unless you can prove ownership of this forum and forbid forumers to post on this forum, i.e only open to you and individuals who you like and who agree with your kind of ideology and mindset, i shall continue to post, and you don't like it, perhaps you should contact forum owners and request my posts to be removed.


You don't like what i'm saying use ignore button its there, feel free to use I certainly in this instance, otherwise i might say something i do not want on this forum.

FFS really is this a trekbbs fleet chat or star trek online chat????


Really !!!!


PS,, Who gave you right to dictate who can who can't post on this forum!!!? Forum is open to all users to post, all who enjoy star trek online as i do, should be allowed to post on star trek online thread, unless you have decided to allow only individuals who belong to your fleet only to post on this thread and this forum section, if so than i might as well contact forum administrator and request calcification as to who is allowed to post on this forum.


PPS, added you to my ignore !!!

Indeed if you're happy over there why move, I am stressed atm cause i am getting too much hustle from fleet issues, i.e deal with in-fleet problems, and as it is a large fleet it takes too much time to deal with and i have less time to actually play the game, so I was thinking of leaving after tier 5 eng is done get some elite gear and than play solo game, or join tier 5 fleet and get my hands on elite gear and see how i can play low profile game from now, one that doesn't require of me to do spend loads of time dealing with fleet issues.

My 3rd toon is in tier 1 fleet and I like it there, no one hustles me and i can play my game without doing fleet actions, deal with fleet issues and deal with stuff i really didn't sign for when i installed star trek online.

Small fleets are good, but solo player is also good if you want to do small stuff like explore the galaxy do stfs and what not.

When i first started playing this game i was playing on my own for much of my time, doing loads of solo missions, loved it, but I find fleets being too much of a stress, so it was naturally my thought what should I do....

You're certainly ALLOWED to post wherever you want (even if you keep telling us we suck and you're never ever coming back). His point was that when you alternate between telling us we suck and how awesome you are, and get pissy whenever anyone tries to engage you, what's the point? Just get a blog. Don't need you coming here just to piss all over us. And when you finish that, don't pretend it's all cool and we're just gonna chat it up with you. No one said you couldn't post here, just questioning why you WOULD

I didn't tell you how awesome you are, may as well add me to the ignore list as well, since that's all it takes. All it took for the last guy was just repeating YOUR post that we suck, you're out of here, never to return. Until you returned again, at least. And told us how awesome you are. And that we suck. Again...

Its a democracy, you are certainly free to make any comment you like as am I free to challenge you on what you have said here.

My main point is that you keep flip flopping your decisions, perhaps because you constantly see the grass as greener on the other side.

You said our TrekBBS fleet was too small, too inactive and grew too slowly so you left for a big fleet. Now you're essentially saying a big fleet is too stressful and wish you are back in a smaller fleet. That's one flip flop.

You also swore you're never coming back to this thread again and yet here you are trying to recruit people into your big fleet and asking for advice on what to do. Another flip flop.

And you do not seem to realize that every time you do a flip you piss people off. You have already pissed off many people here with your past actions. I am simply warning you that leaving your big fleet is bound to piss off a lot of people in your big fleet.
