I'll suddenly be doing a lot more work for the Romulans after the 1v1 I had with Myk, that hyper-plasma torpedo launcher is insane.|
edit: in related news this is not sitting unused on my Defiant any longer.

The hyper plasma is OP, it does around twice the damage of a mk XI plasma torpedo (assuming projectiles aren't destroyed) and with spread/HYT and a couple of projectile DOFFs it's almost a constant stream of torpedoes (with 3 purple DOFFs there's a 60% chance to reduce reload time to 1 sec - was only using 1 yesterday).
There are a couple of skills that have similar synergies, I've got EPtW and EPtS and with DOFFs both have quicker up times and 20% chance to add 25 power to each subsystem.
As we don't seem to have a clue who set up the ESA chat channel, so no-one has admin access or anything, I've created the E-S-A one, it's private but I've sent out invites to everyone. I'll also give admin access to those who want it too.
Sela now has a cape......though appartenly her guard are Romulan Republic >_>
Who will you choose!
Moustache of the year!
Seeing the extra ship that's been added to the Legacy pack I thought I may go for it, checked the USD-GBP conversion putting it at about 80 quid which is a lot of money but I was still tempted.
Clicked through on it using PayPal, noticed the price was now €119.99 which then became £105.
Closes window without completing the transaction...
edit: I'm assuming VAT was added to the US price which is why it got bumped up, it also made it far too rich for my blood.

Holy massive pre-patch Batman!
Yeah it's rather large! At least it'll be done before release day.
When the servers will be falling over through massive amounts of people trying to get on after they've watched the Xbox reveal.
Fleet meet on Tuesday? If it's working, we could all Romulan up together. Er, hold on that sounds a bit wrong.
only downloaded 200mb for me (because it copies the data from tribble) so yeah didn't take long
and the reason for the big patch is mainly down to the texture changes.

5 gigs worth of patch? Oof, that's a large one
I'm just glad it seems to be downloading properly for me now.
So I've now got a hyper plasma launcher front, my Omega torp aft, 3 projectile DOFFs and both torpedo powers on my tactical BOFFs. Did a run on Battlesip Rumble on Elite difficulty (I've been switched to that permanently for a while now), no explosions, tons of loot, so very, very many plasma torpedoes!
Anyone else having trouble downloading this prepatch?
Twice now I've gone out for several hours and left it on prepatching and then come back to find it's only done about a gig and then just stopped downloading.

The forums have a lot of people complaining about it, presumably there's a shit load of people downloading it and it's not exactly a small download. But I'll probably return to the game sometime after the expansion hits and most of the bugs have been quashed that will inevitably spring up.
Switching on the proxy/not switching on the proxy doesn't seem to help, I've still got over 5 gig to download as it just gets stuck.
patch server's having a heart attack today basically on demand patching lead me to a map change that took nearly 1000 seconds >_>
I was in an instance of Starbase 24, it stopped for 30 seconds at one point.
Blew up a few times due to lag and still managed to get second, I've no idea how.
they're investigating the server issues at any rate.
New lockbox details. FIRE EVERYTHING!!!!!!
I love the look of those Shrapnel Torpedoes, and indeed all the Lockbox stuff. I'll probably spend a stipend or 2 on keys with my new Romulan character.
I've already spent my extra 1000 on cheap keys! I think I'm done with actually opening boxes directly though, the chances of the good stuff is so rare and it'd be easier just to buy them off the Exchange, if you can get the EC together.
Hurrah. I left my pc downloading when I was out this evening and it seems to be all downloaded.
Pre-patcher is acting up for me, but Tribble seems to be loading fine so that'll do for now. If it'll all fit on my PC.
As I understand it, Romulans that choose to ally with the Federation can join the ESA. That's what I'll be doing, I think. It's also still a good opportunity to have KDF ship choices and Romulan all in one, for those that've never had a non-Fed character.
Servers down at 1pm until 7pm. Should be able to watch the Xbox reveal and then try and wade on to one of the servers. Which will probably buckle under the weight.
At least Neverwinter players may get lag from STO this time around.
I think I've got the pre-patch done but I'm not entirely sure, I had a look in my pre-patch folder and there was quite a few large files in there.
you can now patch properly to be ready.
Excitement rising!! What with this and the Xbox launch I may collapse with joy...although at least one will probably be moderately disappointing
Cleary the Xbox will disappoint ( *Owns a PS3 and has already preordered a PS4* )
But more seriously yeah all the new stuff ought to be good but most likely STO will be pretty unplayable for a few days at the very least due to the predicable server overload.
And my patch download is barely moving now from 97.7% which is annoyingly close to done but now it's massively slowed down it'll probably take ages more.

I tried to log in to patch. Crashed every time. Deleted pre-patch so it'd patch from the Tribble files, and that helped it get as far as 20% before it crashed, and now it's back to crashing every time. Think I'll have to wait until later to log in as this maintenance must be playing havok with it somehow.
Even then, as you say there'll be such heavy load it'll probably break a lot. It'll be queuetastic too
No crashing for me thankfully, but the last 3% is taking an age.
1.6% to go.....
I'm on the last 4% now and it's taking an AGE
