    I must use the replicator too much. I don't think I have had more than 5 Million in credits since they gave us the gift to test out the system.

    Do boosts on the weekend for credits on the cadet mission. That alone will help significantly. Its the one day I sacrifice scanning boosts.

    Yes, I sometimes have to watch out what I replicate too . I replicate lower rarities then. Skirmish and galaxy weekend events are also good weekends to get some credits. The downside with galaxy event is that I don't level up my crew.

    is it possible for crew that arent yet available in the portal to show up in dabo or buyable from their associated faction? i missed out on ev worf and have been wanting him since that pack

    I should be up to 100 premium pulls by the time we get the update. All the 2020 ships better be in there. I think we grilled Ben hard enough about arena and ships to let them know that we want it. :)

    I don't know why it's so hard for them to create more variety in competitive ships. Create a ship with very high evasion or cloak that activates at 3 seconds and lasts for 4 seconds. Then a burst that won't activate until 9 seconds. It will be able to dodge the Krayton initial attack and then hit back hard. But if it goes up against a T'Ong it will be hammered after it's dodge before it can hit back with a burst.

    The Valdore cloaks at 4 seconds. Theoretically it should've been a Krayton killer, but that hasn't worked out in the meta game.

    They should include all new ships from 2021 too. It takes so long to complete them. The chance of getting the right schemes is low.

    I find protons ship to actually toast krayton's like 95% of the time if you add some good evasion, but is vulnerable to cloaked ships who can dodge the blast. Its always a rock paper scissors situation.

    The Valdore has to wait for the cooldown reduction. On manual, I can make it work. On auto, it fails like every time. The Negh'var might work since its cloak is actually at 4s. I really hope to try it out. If that doesn't work, then @AviTrek 's idea would be my next hope.

    When? Seems like we are overdue now that we are into July. Sitting on a hoard of packs to open when the portal is updated.
  • W.W. CarlisleW.W. Carlisle ✭✭✭✭✭
    I think I'm on about 100 or 101 packs. I'm down to just 12 purples in the portal that are still useful to me. Got a 3* on Silik from a voyage today!

    Under the assumption that the Portal Update does happen this month, here are the six month endpoints that it could cover. Anything added to the game before these points should be included in the Update (assuming I'm counting correctly):

    If the Update happens tomorrow (7/7) - Last event is Arrow Again, the TP was 4* Geskana Tucker, and the Convergence Day card of 5* Luau Paris.

    If the Update happens the week of 7/13 - Last event is Too Good to Be True and the TP was 5* Polaric Janeway.

    If the Update happens the week of 7/20 - Last event is A Woman of Conviction and the TP was 5* M'Ress.

    If the Update happens the week of 7/27 - Last event is Fireside Stories 2 (a repeat, but 5* Caldos IV Crusher may be added, as she was the ranked reward) and the TP was 4* Heist Bashir.


    Note: I'm more counting from the week, than the actual day. I would guess that TP's counting is from when the cards hit the vault, as opposed to when the events begin. Also, they're always able to play around with the counting as they wish; the rule of thumb is the update doesn't covers the six months before it happens, but is that 180 days or six calendar months? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • I don’t follow the portal updates that closely but it’s kinda weird that Suspiria (for example) who was added over a year ago at the beginning of June 2020 isn’t in the portal yet, seems like a long time to me regardless of wether it’s normal or not! 🖖

    I also do not understand why it has been so long since the portal was updated. I can't even remember when the last time was it has been so long. IMO the portal should be updated every 6 months. You want to make us happy? Then update the portal.

    Are all of your 5* crew FF right now? That seems like a lot of wasted usage to have 34 5* cites sitting around.

    If you want to stall for a couple days, if you've got a 1* or 2* Polestar, I believe the quantum cost is much lower. Reset the clock by a few days.

    I really hope that the plan isn't to hold off on the portal update until a month or two after the novelty of the celestial market begins to die down.
    I have loads if polestars and no current use for the celestial market current. I really hope the portal updates at the same time, so as to make players begin to use the market with a renewed sense of urgency.
