Fleet Starbases Feedback

Captain's Blog Stardate 90182.2

Well I was planning on complaining about all the bugs that have been popping up in game, but it seems like Cryptic squashed most of them (at least most of the really annoying ones). So instead I'll talk about the Fleet Advancement system. It has been a few weeks since Season 6 was released and fleets were able to start building their starbases. Overall it is a pretty good system and I enjoy it.

The STO Academy fleet has been working hard towards building our base and I have to say we love the rewards. Personally, I enjoy these Featured Projects that Cryptic is giving us. The new station decotrations look really nice! I hope Cryptic can give us more control over how to decorate our station once these features are unlocked. Perhaps some sort of button for fleet leaders to turn on or off these features.

I also think Cryptic needs to provide more of an explaination about these Provisions. I understand what they do but it can get complicated when figuring out which NPC store/items the provisions are used in. I have started working on a list which explains this so I can add it to the Fleet Starbase Guide, but for people who don't know where to find this an in-game explaination would be nice.

There is probably an explaination some where in the game that I totally missed haha!

My biggest gripe about this whole thing is Fleet Marks. It feels like it takes too long to gather enough Fleet Marks. We have a large amount of members working on this, doing fleet missions together, and it still feels like it takes too long. Although not as long as filling up the required Duty Officers. I hope Cryptic adds some more ways to get fleet marks, perhaps through Duty Officer assignments.

Overall the Fleet Advancement system has been a great addition to the game. Personally, I think it has brought fleet members closer together because it promots a sense of teamwork that the game really hasn't had since launch.

Dont you earn fleet marks once all your duty officer skills are maxed out? I cant recall where exactly i read this but i was under that impression. It may have just been a suggestion someone put up and im recalling it wrong.

@MoonRing, I did read something about that as well. I believe the feature hasn't been implemented yet.

Alright. I'm only 10,000 cxp in recruitment away from having all the commendations maxed out at rank 4. I hope I'll be able to lend more of a hand.
