    I'd like to know why the only communication we get from WRG on upcoming issues comes in the form of this stream. It's wildly inappropriate, imo.

    Lots of devs do interviews with fan sites and forums. Is it weird that this is the only way we seem to get info, very much yes. But inappropriate seems a tad strong, IMO.

    Well, that's why I said IMO but I stand by it.

    I think it's insanely inappropriate that the only news about things BIG THINGS like new honor hall crew came from an interview on a fan stream. If that's not "inappropriate" - it's certainly stupid. They could at least put out a summary or release of what Ben talked about instead of forcing you to watch this.

    I have zero desire to have to sit through a fan talk show to learn about the game I'm playing. WRG should be communicating big updates directly to all players instead of forcing you to watch an unofficial stream. It's not some fun or cute thing. It's a major breakdown in communication.

    I think that's fair. A summary after the fact would be very nice. I enjoyed their conversation last time, but it was tough to find the time to sit down and watch the whole thing. The little tidbits were interesting, and if you want them you can listen to the whole thing, but at least a summary of the new stuff would be great. Thanks @Shan for being willing to take that on :)

    Editing my accidental double post into a question:

    I'd love to hear about any plans they have to integrate Lower Decks characters into the game. Should we expect modified artwork ala TAS characters, or will they try to preserve the style of the show? Will we get a full LDS mega in October, or will they be trickled out?

    That's a crime, you've committed a crime.

    Stupid question: If “Share (my) profile” for the above-stated purpose, can anyone see my DBID?

    Thanks to all of y’all for your community building. 🖖

    Well yes, your DBID is in the link's url. Alternatively you can send us a link to Idol's Datacore analysis sheet or screenshots of your top/FF crew works too if you want to give more roster context.

    This weeks show! Apologies in advance, something funky went on with our audio this week and we were about a tone detuned for some reason. So I had to pitch it back up! Enjoy

    Yeah, the audio pops and choppy frames in the recording indicates from the source, not twitch. Maybe you need a better computer :D

    Well, despite the other 11 episodes going (relatively) fine this week it decided to do this for no real reason whatsoever. Time for a rebuild I think...after next week...

    @Automaton_2000, I got Loque'que Sato on a straight drop of her for the 1*, then pathetically enough got her in 4 begold where she was actually the best option.

    Not sure what exactly the odds are of getting 4 begolds where she was the best choice. :smile:

    TL;DR
    @Automaton_2000 thanks for reviewing our crews! I thought I would take a moment to give you some feedback on what you said and tell you what my plans are (at least for now.) The most memorable moment was your discussion of my “Wasteland of Kirks” and how that demonstrated to you my lack of interest in Faction events. I won’t dispute that assertion (I generally target 350-400k VP except in Skirmishes,) although I think it is more a symptom of my overwhelming focus on Voyages. You’ve opened my eyes to the fact that I have potentially been focusing on Voyages to the detriment of other aspects of the game, namely strong bases and faction Events. You mentioned Professor Sato, who was @ 4/5 when I sent you my link. As fate would have it, she dropped in a merit pull over the weekend and now is happily immortalized at the top of my Diplomacy Base crew. It was also interesting how often Niners Ezri kept popping up as a suggestion for the crew cites.

    Now on to my plan, first off Medic Reno is now Immortalized. Now that my cites are gone, who’s next? I’ve flagged my next 3 projects as Van Gogh, Niners Ezri, and Wrathful Kirk. Based on your love for Ezri, and her event potential, she’s next. After her, it’s a toss-up for me. While I’m leaning towards Van Gogh since he’s not in the portal, Wrathful Kirk would help more with events so he will be next and I'll save Doc for the (anticipated) Convergence Day sale. I'll also make my Lvl 1 Kirks my next levelling projects.

    Thanks again!!

    And thanks to @[10F] Captain Idol for leading the stream and building spreadsheet!! Oh and making the great citation lineups!!
