    So the rank reward 5* in the final week of a DS9-heavy mega-event is a new Scotty from Star Trek VI. I don't know if I feel pandered to or exploited.

    The final 5* crew in a DS9 heavy mega is Tobin O'Brien. The final mega event features a 5* rank reward for the event after the mega.

    The 5* reward offset by one strikes again.

    3 🌟 Pretty Clothes Jadzia as the lower Threshold Reward instead of a 2 🌟. Awesome if anyone is missing her! {Her outfit theme matches one of her 2 🌟 variants, IIRC}


    My bad. I thought the 2 🌟 had a similar color scheme to her outfit for some reason.

    Come on Travis, keep playing. You know you want to!!! :D

    I'm a little disappointing in this Scott though. He doesn't have the innovator or jury rigger traits, which are the character's defining traits. I realize this card is supposed to be him taking out West at the end of Undiscovered Country, but Scotty would still be those things as it's what he was.

    I'm happy to get "best trek uniforms" Scotty. In fact, I think this officially puts us at all 7 "main cast" in the reds right?

    No, I meant what I said. The offset didn't strike at all. The rank reward 5*... is a new Scotty. The featured 5* in that event is Tobin O'Brien.

    Sometimes I wonder if I ever did.

    Honestly, if not for the flavor text, I would have placed him as being from II or III. And why not give him a pose that relates to his heroic moment of shooting Colonel West, rather than just kinda standing there all cheerful?

    Nancy, this is the one where the title needs to be fixed. It looks like you did yyyy-dd-mm rather than yyyy-mm-dd. And it should be the event start date, rather than the date you posted the announcement.

    Thanks

    Ben said they aren’t doing them for some time while they get stuff sorted with the layoffs then may pick it up again in a month or so.

    I thought it was funny. Timelines always needs more self-aware humor.

    And that's how it's always been with megas. The fourth week's reward has nothing to do most of the time with the themed mega 🤷‍♂️

    The reward is typically a repeat, signaling the event that will rerun. The new 5* is usually the rerun BEFORE a Mega.

    Well, that is less than reassuring. They cut the staff so hard they cannot have someone send out boilerplate items? What is sent for each Event type is well established and probably could even be set up as a series of simple macros. Faction Event? Click on the Faction Event Pre-set. Like that.

    Shan did them and there is no Shan anymore. Shan did a lot of different things helpful to the game and the community and is not replaceable.

    That's silly, of course she's replaceable. It's just that they haven't replaced her with like for like. We have very little insight into either person's full responsibilities. There's also firm specific human capital that gets developed over time. Shan was there a long time, there's hopefully plenty of time for Nancy to learn what's important to us (and important to TP?WG). At the end of the day the 100 chrons did very little for me and I don't miss it.

    However, I think that the lack of updates on Steam are potentially bad for the game, as players who have the game installed get them in their feed and might help bring people back. (But that's just an ill informed opinion, maybe very few people play on Steam). Either way Nancy's boss will decide her priorities, not Nancy and not us.

    Positions are replaceable, people are not.

    In a work context people are totally replaceable. Yes, the dynamic will change, but humans are masters at adapting. We'll get there too.

    Yes. You're missing the second sentence of my original post: "I don't know if I feel pandered to or exploited." DS9 is my favorite series, VI is my favorite movie.

    We miss Shan. Do you think that carries over to the faceless corporation who axed her to replace her with someone they obvious will pay less and who does not even get to use her name when she posts versus a label the company will not have to change when they replace her with someone they will pay even less?


    It's like they say.

    "If you die tomorrow, the ad for your replacement at work will be in the same paper as your obituary."
