As always please do not repost this article on Reddit or the Cryptic Forums. Warning: this post contains foul language, and references to … Continue reading Weekend Updates: Upcoming T6 ‘Speculation’, Massively Reports on Gay Flamewar, and of course SNR’s

Posted earlier today in response to a question in the forums about PVP DMG modifiers: This one, I can comment on. We’re working on changes right now that will remove these [Mod]s from future crafted items. After examining their effectiveness, their intended audience, and their intended use-cases, we decided that rolling these in as random equipment suffixes is not a great idea. And that, if … Continue reading Borticus confirms: PVP [Mods] on Player Crafted Items going Bye-Bye Soon™
Updated: The idea caught some attention. *finger crossed* @LootCritter This was a great write up that I've passed around for review.

First – you get much needed resources from the boxes themselves. Whether you like to craft (I do), or you simply break them apart for resell, the R&D packages on a normal day are a great deal. Secondly theres a … Continue reading Not a fan of lockboxes, but man do I love R&D Promotions.
Busy week for me, personally and at work, AND I downloaded Galactic Civilizations 3. If you like turn based 4x strategy, this is the new gold standard. Holodeck Updates this week are sparse, in part do to the holdback on the release of ‘House Pegh’ from the 21st to the 28th of May. The holdback is a great sign that the team is willing to take … Continue reading News Round-Up – Holodeck Updates, a new mission delayed, and a rumour quashed.
Let me reminisce for a moment. When you look at combat movies from the second world war, one stands out for me personally and that’s “Destination Tokyo” starring Cary Grant. So what the heck does that have to do with the Romulan Pilot ship? Let me explain. I don’t remember what first drew me to it. It’s black & white.
