Tribble Patchnotes – Lots of good with a small roleback we all saw coming.

The Plasma Wave Console has been tamed.  Make one twitter comment about how cool it is, and THIS is why we can’t have nice things… grumble.  Good news it still affects projectiles 😉   As for the ‘Greedy Emitters’ roleback – that one was inevitable.


Tribble has been updated to: ST.60.20160417a.3.

  • Transwarping from the Fleet Mine to the Fleet Spire now works correctly if the fleet has unlocked the ability.
