    Keep meaning to start this up again, but just can't be bothered to relearn all the ins and outs.

    You should pop on when it's Fleet Thursday, there's always a few people on to answer any questions you may have. Though I don't think it'll be too harsh, they do try to keep it easy for more casual players. Just remember to not explode too much.

    Nice to see they've responded to the outcry about how pointless the upgraded Jem'Hadar space set was, I really wish I'd waited, especially as the price dropped as well.

    I doubt I'll be getting that 50 Lobi back.

    Oh and for those who have used bio-neural warheads on the Klink side, does it only do a modest amount of damage and then whittle away the hull afterwards? No big damage indication? I must admit I like the fact it's got the longest range of a weapon in the game but the cooldown and damage makes it less worthwhile than me using a photon torpedo instead I think.


    Edit: ah the small amount of damage is it blowing itself up and then the DOT happens, although sometimes it doesn't. I think I'll keep a pair of PTs upfront, I can continually fire them most of the time. No wonder my spare console hasn't sold on the Exchange.

    I also have 48 tickets for the Dil mining, fucking annoying you can't sell them or transfer them to another character.

    The warhead should detonate on the target and do some pretty big damage, should it hit the hull. I'm talking 1-hit KOs on most targets. However, it may have changed since I last used it as I'm fairly sure it wasn't working as intended.

    What I'm seeing with the BNW is it explode then a hull meter appearing and it ticking down, certainly not blowing ships up unless they're already badly damaged. My isometric charge packs a hell of a lot more of a punch, it affects groups and is a console rather than a weapon slot.

    BNW are mainly about reducing the crew of a ship so probably a better weapon for PvP

    your last pic is broken there

    The best thing about BNW is the fact that they shoot at stuff on the way to their target, and pick up a new one if the target is destroyed, meaning lots of DoT and less 'wasted' damage. Always have it equipped on my Klingon character.

    Possibly something more useful on anything but my Armitage, I already have 6 fighters firing heavy plasma torps at anything and everything.

    weird one, but if you can use your phone as a tether you can update your launcher and play

    It's down now, right?

    Typically right at the moment when I'm trying to get back into it.

    Yeah, some problem with a server in Boston owned by "Cogentco", whoever that it. This has happened before, and it's usually not a quick fix because there's not much Cryptic can do until that company does some technical stuff. Last time it happened it was "improper load balancing".

    There's a thread here where they're asking us to share tracert info, but at this stage I think there's enough for the team to get an idea. Shame they're not communicating that back to us though.

    Nice news about the anniversary though :

    ENGAGE!

    And now, as part of our upcoming anniversary celebration, we are pleased to announce that we’ll be releasing a special Feature Episode this Thursday – we’ll be sharing exciting details about it with you in tomorrow’s Dev Blog. All players who complete the new episode between Jan 31st and Feb 14th will receive a free Ambassador Class (Fed) or Kamarag Class (KDF) starship as a reward. You won’t want to miss out! This is going to be fun.

    I hope this is the "secret" one that features (I'll tag this for tohse who'd prefer a surprise) Denise Crosby. Given it features the Ambassador as the free ship, it could be anything. It could be Tasha Yar given a bit of time travel or simulation, or Sela given she's fairly important in STO lore.

    Should be a good mission, whatever it is, and I'll never say no to a free ship :)

    On the connection front, I'm using my VPN to Washington, DC and it's working.

    edit: bit too laggy to do anything other than set up DOFF missions and some selling though.

    I managed to get in without using my VPN after it had patched, decided to do some high value Dil mining (I'm sure they've made that more difficult the last two times I've hit 4375 rather than 5K), then thought it was time to take advantage of the fleet bonus and do a Starbase Defence.

    It got stuck on patching. :-(

    a lot of people are patching now as the launcher has been somewhat fixed so it may take some time.

    I downloaded this last night and played some of the tutorial. Almost seemed like it'd be better suited to a pad!

    I don't know if it's still the case, but it used to automatically detect and reconfigure the HUD for a 360 pad. It does play well with it too, and in the confines of PvE missions it does the job nicely :)

    Later on you'll lose the flexibility of easy Bridge Officer power access, but it's still fun.

    I know it's a free ship and it's canon but those nacelles look so bloody huge!

    strange bug on my klingon, when I hover over shields the shield strength number is what it'd be if equipped on my shuttle and not on my heavy raptor...

    That's odd, have you tried switching to your shuttle as your ready ship, then back again and seen if that makes a difference?

    Well we certainly know who Denise Crosby is playing now don't we! :-)

    They left one stat off there though, "Times Silva@Whizzo has exploded : Fucktons"
