    My guess is they had something boneheaded like Donatra/Shinzon planned and now that a significant revenue is being threatened the crew are being reselected with better options that players will have a harder time outright refusing, but maybe that’s just my years of corporate conditioning at work.

    I thought this was a possibility as well.
    Either that, or they chose to wait for things to cool down before making any kind of announcement, since every thread was bombarded with venting and ranting.
    I don't think it would have mattered who they announced, people would have complained about the choices being terrible or that they were boycotting it anyways.
    I just hope for someone I have 1/5, someone on my "to cite" list would be even better.

    Or, it could be that the "OMG! WE REALLY MESSED UP!" Zoom meeting lasted all day Friday. Then it was the weekend. Then today is a U.S. holiday......

  • With President’s Day coming up what about a President’s collection with either Abraham Lincoln or UFP President Ra-ghoratreii as legendary and President of Earth Mobile Doctor as Super Rare.

    Well.....i’m not American :tongue: 🇨🇦

    No problem, Abraham Lincoln legendary for the Americans and Hockey Chakotay for the Canadians.

    Woohoo!

    Please tell me there's no real Hockey Chakotay as an option.

    ...isn't it more likely that the next campaign probably had ISM or Q or dragonballz in the rewards and somehow got DB'd up?

    what if we start to get 4* and 5* dragonballz instead of the cites???

    ISM specifically says its gained via campaigns if I saw the tool tip correctly (otherwise it was Quantum), so maybe the delay is related to balancing the loot tables and what to remove without reactivating/perpetuating the recent mob. Myself, I’d happily give up the single blue portal pulls for a random constellation, or even a set polestar related to the crew featured in the campaign. I’d be ok seeing some merits or credits swapped for ISM, as well, I guess we’ll see in time. There could even be a week or two long gap between the next and current campaigns while they redo the loot table, and I’d have space in my heart for that if it meant balance and proper function at launch. All this is easy to say though, since I’m not spending on premium myself unless they chose one of a very small pool of crew, as my wallet is a no go like many others for the time being.

    If there is a week long delay related to their coding skills and redoing the Campaign Rewards, that would still be something that an announcement is a nice thing for. I sincerely think that Shan didn't have time Friday after the obvious thing that obviously tied up staff all day to post the announcement. And that they have been off since.

  • It’s quarter after three in the morning, and midwinter insomnia has me working on the dailies. My brain goes strange places at times like these, so something just occurred to me...

    Could the delay in a campaign announcement be because they are taking the time to tweak it to add the much beloved extra tiers this month as a sort of olive branch?

    Likely? Probably not.

    Possibly? Maybe.

    Thanx, Shan!

    This might be a great opportunity to, you know, sow the seeds of goodwill and make next month's campaign $4.99 instead of $9.99... :)
    Dear TP: Non sequitur. Your facts are uncoordinated.

    And 120 Tiers. With Constellations at 120.

    They just announced it. Gabriel Bell and Lt. Commander Uhura.

    But what I don't like is they're replacing the equipment crates with ISM. They could've replaced something less useful such as the trainers or faction boosts. Terrible choice in my opinion. I liked the equipment crates.

    Faction tokens? Useless? Huh?

    Eh, the equipment crates were pretty useless in the standard campaign at least. I don't mind that, though I don't feel a particularly pressing need for ISM either - ISM is the least of the bottlenecks in crew retrieval.

    I'm THRILLED about the equipment crate change; I'm just at a level that they aren't useful for me. I realize I'm probably in the minority here.

    Uhura is not a choice I thought but should be fun. Closer to having a ST: TMP bridge crew.

    EDIT: Didn't realize she's a top 50 voyager (36 by the Big Book); that's a pretty good crew for just about anyone.

  • Meh the crates Occasionally gave me something good, but mostly gave me unnecessary junk. Fine by me. Was hoping for the extra tiers, but I'll take it.

    I wasn't big on the low-level crates, but the ones that could drop gold equipment were always amazing.
