This will be borring. I will not buy this crap. game needs to be more interactive in being a MMO.
Chief etc and so on before the ship can do anything!
I don't want to pilot a 200+(even 8,20,100) crew wessel by myself.
Cryptic! Please wake up and go back and visit this before you ruin this game!
Crafting same thing: You have to earn technology.
Example: You and your 300 guild mates. Some craft and others pilot the wessels and get to higher tier mineral areas. you build bases ,stations and whatnot. Then you get crafting stations. Hell even put a crafting station on the ship.In a/instance
Ships are built at Starports/hangars! Figured I'd let you in on that secrete.
The crafters earn the right to craft a Voyager or a Brown Variant Valdore. It will not be an easy task (or at least it shouldn't be)
Make the crafting engaging with stimulai it should be groundbreaking to any craftin in MMO to-date.
let the noobs start in smaller Pick up group like wessels (non DS9 Defiant etc). They can queue for a 5 player wessel and go earn exp and get some sell loot. When they have enough credentials they can become a crewman and train and specialise for what the Captain of the Guild/ship the Vessel needs and actualy have or be earning the expertise needed to be apart of a better wessel and it's crew. I'm sure you could have UFOP (Klingon Acadamy etc) as NPC starter guilds( federations,clan ,corp wtfever). Guilds looking for new or replacement crew members could look at these new players see how they are progressing and use this as a recruitment pool. Others who like to solo could possibly do like Guildwars did with NPC crewman. They might not be good at 1 thing but, they are good enough for a solo'r and not overpwered if done right (PVE only). MMO's are not for solo(lonewolf) type players but, there is money in it as having them a subscriber.
Seriously, I would love to meet the guy incharge of ideas over there. I don't think he has a clue about what an successful MMO is.
Use your brains over there!
I will definitly not play this crap if its mostly Away Missions on some instanced planet. Cryptic better get on the damn ball or this will be another huge failure.
