    I appreciate the updating of the rank rewards, but I'll just point out that the people who need the ISM and constellations the MOST, are the ones who can't rank in the top percentiles like that. (1000 for constellation, 5000 for ISM)

    Agreed, also I appreciate the addition of honor, but it’s such a small amount it’s sad

    The honor is making up for the loss of the premium 1x we used to have in rank rewards.

    Everyone gets some Dilithium, as well!

    I think the new stuff more than makes up for no 3⭐.

    Why is my Ranked Reward Table not showing Retrieval Materials?

    While I appreciate changes to the reward structure, I feel like there's a big shift to a 'the rich get richer' mentality in the game, trying to make the event standings more important, lucrative and competitive (all to drive sales). There has always been a component of that to the game, but all the recent changes and additions are only amplifying that.

    Since the 3* crew got rid from ranked rewards,
    does it mean we won t see any new 3* crew anymore?

    I thought of that. Unless they do more of those Packs everyone hated, might signal the end of new 3⭐

    Or they could shuffle thresholds a bit and use three copies of a 3* instead of having the 2 copies of a 2*. Most of us wouldn't care. You'd have to juggle a bit for that extra room initially, but, if you had the resources, immortalize and freeze them during the event.

    I always do the new 2⭐s right away. Keeps my Collection done. If the 3⭐ is new, or one I haven't Immortalized, I do it for the 3⭐ Collection. A brief hiatus while I finish the 18 I don't have would be nice. They could even keep the 2⭐ in the Threshold, and add three copies of a 3⭐ at three point levels not in use.

    I think they did have a 3* once or twice in the threshold rewards before, so it would not be really new, but an interesting toss up nonetheless.
    There are three ways to do something; the right way, the wrong way, and the Janeway.

    So, what are people thinking the rerun is after the Mega? I think Wyatt Earp is the (obvious) clue. If so, looking at the Western Collection: Sherrif Worf, Gunslinger Uhura, North Star Archer and North Star T'Pol were all portal pack intros; and Durango Troi is from Gods and Masters (ie: the event I've been waiting on FOR-EV-ER). Given that the last Mega event is a Galaxy, I think it's unlikely they'd follow that with another one.

    BUT Claiborne Chekov, Frank Hollander, and North Star Tucker all were introduced in either A Brute Squad or A Brute Squad 2. Do people think we're getting A Brute Squad 3? If so, dust off your Frank Hollanders!

    Wyatt Earp will need to be added to The Wild West collection @Shan and while you’re at it, how about Carlos Data in The Big Goodbye collection? :innocent:

    I believe this should happen next week, for both :)

    Thank you, Shan!

    The new rewards are very likeable.

    I agree. They will also increase competition, for better or for worse. I expect to need at least 100 more VP than I would usually plan for.

    Are they just rarity and skill constellations?

    THANK YOU Shan for the info, for a cool TOS character, and for the early warning on the collection adds! :)

    now if only those new rewards had some quantum dropping here and there...yknow, that sure would be a way to get people to play expeditions again, start dropping Q on those rare nodes! o:)

    Thank you! Collections are as important as base and proficiency stats for some of us. Well, maybe just me o:)

    I would have bought packs to FF Carlos if we had that information while he was on sale and will definitely be FFing Earp when he's available.
