Posters not heard from in days, their ‘Everything is Awesome’ videos disappearing. No response from them in-game or by email. Their accounts oddly silent. Update: Voporak’s awesome Youtube videos were taken down by – himself. “I don’t really like this game anymore. It’s been going downhill for months. I’ve wanted to just stop, but something always held me back, kept dragging me in, and the … Continue reading R.I.P. “Delta Rising is the Best…” MEME – That and, Merry Christmas 😉
“git gud, scrub” I’ve been harsh in the past when talking about elements within the DPS channel community. Given they make no claims that they are anything except about min/maxing their DPS builds, it’s hard to understand why some use it as a platform to bully others. Edit: It’s been suggested that this is a vendetta against the DPS league. It’s not. I’ve been a … Continue reading The Two Faces of the DPS League: Need More Porch, Less Sarcasm
Had a double-take over at Massively where the image they chose was Star Trek Online for the headline: Claims that MMOs are a ‘threat to public health’ are ‘exaggerated’ says new study Cryptic has gone to great lengths to minimize exposure to this disease with Delta Rising.

By now you’ve heard that another set of “game-balancing” changes have been added to this weeks release to Holodeck. Originally mentioned during the P1 200th podcast, Gecko described changes to XIII and XIV weapons that would see an increase to overall DPS. He followed up with a longer description via the forum. I won’t get into the actual numbers here. They’re confusing even the experts. … Continue reading STO Game Balancing 101: Add more DPS to make upgrades more palatable?
Its been a week since Gecko’s comment that the low count of people in queues was the result of a reporting error. With the exception of Crystalline Catastrophe Advanced and the Winter events, the queues are empty. As a comparison from last year at the time of this posting, there was 700+ players in the visible queues in quick play and private; today there is … Continue reading The Queues are Still Dead Jim.

Everything is awesome 😉 Raise your hand if your could ‘hear’ everything in the characters voices. Raise both hands if you knew the real dialog by heart. Yup. We’re Trekkers and proud of it. Continue reading Player Made Video’s – Impressions on DR (UPDATED)
Congratulations to Priority One on their 200th episode. A great in-depth interview regarding development costs, player retention and game balance. It certainly opened my eyes as to their intentions versus what was actually was deployed. Hearing that Cryptic is still adjusting as they go is reassuring. Gecko – “we don’t know what that balance should be, (but we’re working on it)” Congratulations to Cryptic on … Continue reading Priority One Ep 200: Captain Gecko Talks cost reductions and game balance.
Great Review, and despite what Virusdancer thinks, is a valid contribution to the conversation. Further it was pointed out to me that this is written by a long-time player and Foundry Author known as HippieJohn. Food for thought 😉 Continue reading Hippie Reviews Delta Rising “Rise and Fall.”
