[QUOTE=Tuskin;32118704]I'm already playing Free technically, I got a lifetime for my birthday last year. So once STO goes F2p I get the benefits the Subscribers get in the F2P model.[/QUOTE] So basically you are like. Yo dawg, I heard you like f2p, so I put f2p in yo f2p, so you can play for free.
They released the faq. [url]http://www.startrekonline.com/f2p_faq#18[/url] Looks like silvers are getting a pretty good deal.
So basically, I get to play everything of the game I personally did before, only free? IMO, this is an even better F2P model than CO.
I was thinking about re-subbing for a month or two to see what has changed but looks like I'll wait.
well for Free members they removed Ship tokens, so if you don't have enough "Dilithium" when you go up a rank you need to grind it for your next Tier ship.
Appears the limits on the In-Game Chat / Mail also go away after playing for 20 hours, or if it had a sub to it in the past, or has a amount of Cryptic points or made a purchase with them. Which is great.
This seems unnecessary, but everyone saw it coming...
They're going to try to get a F2P Public (well Public as in Subscribers) test server, possibly replacing tribble by the end of this month/early October. They will be Premiering the DOFF System and the Nexted feature episodes series on there, along with the new economy system. The new episodes series will be sometime in October on that F2P Test Server, and will be on the live server by the time F2P launches officially near the end of the year. I heard all of this on a live interview with Dan Stahl on a podcast, which will be on there show next Tuseday if you want the full scoop. [editline]13th September 2011[/editline] Also the Enterprise-F class will not be on the Microtrans Store AT ALL, It will be earned ingame in a future mission series,, weather it be a Fleet event or what is not known.

[QUOTE=Mingebox;32277586]F2P test for subscribers? wat[/QUOTE] They want to make sure its good for Free players. I'm assuming they will have a way to make a fake free account or something for testing.
[QUOTE=Mingebox;32277586]F2P test for subscribers? wat[/QUOTE] They have to playtest the F2P features, isn't that obvious?
Tribble Test Server is being completely wiped this monday (including characters and foundry missions) while they "prepare the server for use in the beta of an upcoming major game update" F2P beta anyone? [url]http://forums.startrekonline.com/showthread.php?p=3757459#post3757459[/url]
Call me when they add the Enterprise-J to the game.
[QUOTE=norzone;32315225]Call me when they add the Enterprice-J to the game.[/QUOTE] Enterprise* I'm not a grammar Borg, but it a dishonorable to misspell the name of a legacy of great ships.
[QUOTE=norzone;32315225]Call me when they add the Enterprise-J to the game.[/QUOTE] They're not going to. CBS forbid it. Its too far into the future. They were going to make a ship design that would look similar, an ancestor of the design, not sure what happened there, might have been CBS as well.
Ok so there are 2 test servers now. "Redshirt" is what tribble used to be. (aka where everything goes before 'live' "Tribble" Is the Beta Server. You need another 10gb of space to use Redshirt, but it doesn't download that, it copies it over from your existing files. You know, unless I just got super magical internet that can download 10gigs in 2 minutes.
F2P Update! Beta tomorrow for subscribers *crosses fingers* [url]http://startrekonline.com/f2p_blog[/url]
So 2 months at most for the beta then release I guess.
he F2P beta is up, it happened yesterday afternoon, I just just playing it too much and didn't post.
Oh god. Oh yes. THIS IS GOING FREE TO PLAY? Thank the lord.
[QUOTE=Benstokes;32647583]Oh god. Oh yes. THIS IS GOING FREE TO PLAY? Thank the lord.[/QUOTE]I thought it was pretty decent in beta, but marred by the awful ground combat. I can't wait to try out the updated version.
I never minded the ground combat, so I can't really comment, but from the feed back I've read, its improved a lot.
I want to get back into those fleet actions, I'm more exicted for this game than I am for Skyrim!
[QUOTE=Benstokes;32647583]Oh god. Oh yes. THIS IS GOING FREE TO PLAY? Thank the lord.[/QUOTE]You're welcome.
[QUOTE=Mingebox;32649429]I thought it was pretty decent in beta, but marred by the awful ground combat. I can't wait to try out the updated version.[/QUOTE] I did two free trials, and I pretty much loved it. BTW whatever happened to multiple players in the same ship? Did that ever or it going to ever materialize?
I'm actually looking forward to this, been meaning to start playing again. Finally can start using my heavy cruiser again and finally get an exploration one.
[QUOTE=Benstokes;32653067]I did two free trials, and I pretty much loved it. BTW whatever happened to multiple players in the same ship? Did that ever or it going to ever materialize?[/QUOTE] Your friends can come aboard your ship but you can't really do anything but talk.
[QUOTE=Benstokes;32653067]BTW whatever happened to multiple players in the same ship? Did that ever or it going to ever materialize?[/QUOTE] That was back when Perpetual was making it.
[QUOTE=Thom12255;32653559]Your friends can come aboard your ship but you can't really do anything but talk.[/QUOTE] Meh, that's something at least.
Is this f2p yet ?
