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 … Continue reading Patch Notes for Holodeck – Week of 06/17/15: Revised board stats, New FE
STO News Updates – Week of June 12th 2015 The great forum migration is a go starting MONDAY, with this post from Trendy: Hey everyone, So a while back we were discussing moving over to the Vanilla forums. After looking at the migration carefully, discussing it with the team, we wanted to make some changes to the forums before we felt like we could move … Continue reading STO News Summary: Moar updates, Forum migration, Lifetime subscriber sale and the new T6 lifetime reward ship.
Over the past several weeks, Cryptic has been releasing updates to the general performance of the game. For some the performance improvements have been noticeable and appreciated. Even with a substantially upgraded computer I am seeing still some lag in STF’s, and other players are still plagued with FPS issues. The performance improvements are a work in progress, and not all are necessarily listed in the … Continue reading Holodeck Release Notes, Stealth fix for the HOG board, Performance Improvements
It’s Here. You tend to forget how long it takes to set-up a new computer. My original intention was to do an unboxing video. Well, needless to say that went out the window because by the time I got home, my nephew had already unpacked it with the intention of setting it up for himself. Clearly there has been a miscommunication, lol. As for unboxing the … Continue reading Going to be a busy evening. Might call in sick tomorrow. And Friday.
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. This weeks special edition of the SHOW is a great example of what happens when our community comes together to overcome problems. If anything during times of like this, we see what really drive those people who have time and again defended the game. Whether you ever cared about, or have been frustrated by the DPS League, I urge you … Continue reading Conversations about the STO Community – what the last 48 hours has done for us.
This is a follow-up post to the confusion created by a drama caused by three people within the DPS community. Two players and one admin – RyanSTO, Felisean and Omegashoker (creator of the combat log reader) – broke away from the DPS League on Thursday, and under the cover of the weekly patch and attempted to arbitrarily shut down the DPS Leagues with the goal of replacing it with something they … Continue reading Entitlement and the art of self-delusion. DPS-Metal tries to extend an olive branch after screwing with 7500 players.
This years Summer Event on Risa kicked off yesterday amongst the angst of “Dude, Where’s my 10K Channel?“, and while they were sorting that mess out and between my multiple computer crashes (not game related) – I had time to check out the new T6 Ferengi ‘Nandi’ Warship. How did I get one so soon? Lobi. Lots and lots of Lobi. (1055 to be exact*). As … Continue reading T6 Nandi – First Impressions: It’s a nice time to get back into #STO
The story thus far: Motivated by a disagreement within the DPS Leagues management, RyanSTO and Felisean deleted the chat channels for the leagues 7000+ members without cause. Within minutes RyanSTO posted an announcement that they were reorganizing the Leagues on the primary game forums. It didn’t take long for the name calling to start, and in short order the forum announcement was shut down … Continue reading Unnecessary DPS League Drama leads to Player Confusion
LATENCY? WHAT LATENCY? With one massive list of latency-inducing fixes now complete, Salami Inferno gave us a sneak peak at list #2 (although on closer inspection it looks like two lists. On Bigger sheets of paper). Anyone want to make a bet the next list is printed on a billboard? In all seriousness, thumbs-up to the entire team for tackling this issue. One list down, … Continue reading Midweek Updates: More Lag Fixes, All Things Risa, and an Updated Ship Release List
