Patch Notes for Holodeck – Week of 06/17/15: Revised board stats, New FE

It’s been a interesting week in STO.  The forum transition to the new Vanilla forums has been extended until weeks end.  The messaging is a little misleading, with the system offering to sign you in using your ARC credentials, only to kick you out shortly thereafter.  For the average user this experience is less than optimal as the link to find out more information nearly matches the background color.

One other issue with the transition to ARC managing the users in the forum – how will this impact players who still play the game, but are banned within the forum itself?

In addition to the ‘silence of the forums’ the company’s trusty ‘DevTracker’ account has been temporarily silenced during the transition.  No details as to when this will be restored.

Patch Notes

New Featured Episode:

General:

  • “House Pegh”
    • “House Pegh” has been moved to the Iconian War tab in the episode journal as a level 60 episode.
    • Resolved an issue that was preventing Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrades from “House Pegh” from being movable to Banks and Account Banks.

      • The pack for “Up Close and Personal” now unlocks the Ground Trait
      • The pack for “Point Blank Shot” unlocks the Space Trait.
