A possible future

ThurthoradThurthorad ✭✭✭✭✭
So, I have been thinking what game we could possibly have without the staff that have obviously contributed so much over the last few years and who seemed to have a great experience making the game that many of us still love.

The first question is to know how much material (and by material, I mean crew cards) is prepared, but not released. It is possible that WRG has tons of artwork stocked up. It would still need to go through the approvals process, but it's just something to acknowledge that we just don't know.

Ok, let's assume that there is no stock of crew. Can the game operate on reruns for some time? Can teams from other games great one crew a month for the premium campaign? People have oft complained about their legendary crew citation debt. How long would you continue playing if each week you were working to run that down whilst a small number of new crew came into the game.

Essentially, could you see yourself playing the events if they were all reruns? I could, at least for a while anyway. And I'd probably be happy to pay for the premium campaign if I had faith that the game had a model to continue on a lower cost base.

I have no idea if a decision has been made or not. But unless there's a pressing need to close the game down I can't imagine WRG being in a hurry, so it's possible we will end up in some halfway house regardless.

Any other ideas for what the game may look like with no new event, no new ships for skrimishes and possible no or few new crew being added?

    The problem I fear is nothing new gives very little incentive to do much. For fleets and captains already on the fence they will fall. I'd still play but I admit it would be at a reduced level as I still enjoy the game,
    Sir, I protest! I am NOT a merry man!

    I’d be ok with reruns if it gave me a chance to earn copies to some legendaries that I have partially done. I’ve got so many unfinished that I’ll never cite them all. Some of them are ones that I’d probably never cite but they are part of collections that I’d like to continue adding to for the rewards.

    I think this is really spot on. For me, FBB battles were interesting when we had something we were battling for. Now that I've been Level 20 for several weeks, it's becoming a grind that I do primarily to benefit my fleet, not for my own enjoyment. If the whole game were like that, I think many players wouldn't do much and fleets would fall apart.

    Surely they already have a Picard mega/campaign/weekly objective in the pipeline

    As a relatively new player (last August) who feels like I missed all the best Lower Decks crew from events that were already past, I feel like reruns would certainly work to tide me over for a while yet. Obviously, veteran players will feel differently.

    I'm potentially interested in pretty much anything* that helps me out with my honor debt.

    *excludes Galaxy events or Galaxy-hybrid events
