Sucks to be me, then. I bought this computer because I didn't do any gaming anymore, so it didn't matter. But given that MMOs indeed are usually low on graphics, I figured I could play it easily.

Well, I think it's normal for MMOs not to have top notch graphics.
They deliberately keep polygon counts down so even people with low end machines can still play the game with decent performance.
This. It was funny though. When Age of Conan came out, my sisters bought new computers to play it haha

I heard the RCS Accelerator console got redone with the update, and that it's now effective for non-escorts. Was it borked before? What changed, specifically? Because if this is true, I might have to try out my all-rcs-console Oddy again...

Also, all them folks driving up the prices of low-end stuff on the Exchange. Why can't they do that to the high-end stuff too?

Well so far I can't say I'm impressed. The game runs rather slowly on my computer and the graphics are... dissapointing... though that may be because the game has lowered its graphics for my card (I _am_ using a 3 year-old office computer, although I played more graphic-intense games with my previous PC.)

And... did they just pit me against the Borg in the tutorial ? Poor Borg, ever weaker.
Tutorial Borg are definitely not in-game Borg.

Yep. It was borked. The RCS Accelerator was virtually useless for a long time.

Yep. I see most rare Mk IV - Mk VI stuff running absurd prices.

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

Guys, I'm quite new to Star Trek Online so I'm way behind in just about every way. Anyway, the last time I played was last year because it was impossible for me to get past the Dresdens Comet challenge. It seemed like a glitch and I became frustrated. Anyway, I've come back to the game but after 5 minutes of waiting, it reads exactly 1% patched. What gives?

What gives is that you've been gone for a year and missed several major updates, just face it it's gonna take ya quite a while. Set it to go and be ready to play the next day.

Yeah, you've got about 7 GB of data that needs updated.

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

By the way, disregard the D'Deridex comment from earlier in this thread. I have decided to keep my Mogai escort. It's much more nimble, and can lay down more firepower faster. I miss some of the extra Boff slots, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make in order to move the ship. I'll save up for some beam arrays for the D'Deridex class and use it as the cruiser it is, maybe further down the line.

Sweet mercy, that ship moves like a tub, even with a green Mk VIII RCS Accelerator.

If you want to get the 2 accolades and permanent buffs for the Borg, the tutorial Borg are a good place to do it. I've gotten them both ways and against the real Borg takes a lot more sweat and tears.

Well yah, if you only have one. Even a purple mkxii will only up the turn rate to 11.2. If you want to make a cruiser turn, you have to do at least three, especially before mkX.

Which makes it pointless, because you're using all of your eng slots just to turn the thing around.

Did some exchange shopping.

For anyone Fed side, you can currently buy the plasmonic leech console off the exchange for less than 200k EC.

Mirror Ha'Noms with crazy sci boff seating is a 6-7 million.

Mirror Ha'Feh less than 4 million.

Mirror Ha'Apax less than 200k.

Pretty clear which ship is in demand!
