Star Trek Online goes once more unto the Breach queue

Like this, but with slightly better lines, hopefully.
A special version of Star Trek Online’s Breach queue is now hailing captains to adventure.

Cryptic brought back its five-player instanced Breach for a “faster-paced, action-packed” romp that’s been streamlined and balanced to be better than before. And that’s not the really good part! As with many STO releases, there are extra rewards for players who run this queue upon its return.

From now through the 23rd (and from March 16th through April 7th for console jockeys), Star Trek Online will award Breach queue victors with special currency that can be exchanged for a ton of currency, marks, and even a Voth melee weapon. After this time, the queue will revert to its normal reward payout.

Cool. The Breach is actually one of my fav events to run, I should go try out this tweaked version. To the patch-mobile!

Frankly I was disappointed in the newest version, its obviously shortened to allow for alt farming. I loved last years version more, just the right length.

that headline made my brain fuzz, but i guess it also got me to click to see what the fuck was going on there.

then i read the article and lamented the naked cynicism with which this “mmo” invites players to queue for it’s content. reminding myself of it’s max instance popular maxxing out at 50 in a few hubs and encounter things and in most cases you get 5 man coop action.

which i don’t think is a bad thing in itself given i like ubisoft’s coop mp games like div and grw, but at the same time this game having originally gone double on the required sub as if it was a proper mmo in the fullest sense (even beyond it’s complete lack of content or replayability at launch while pushing constant overpriced cash shop updates while devs moaned about how players needed to buy more of that stuff if they wanted more content at all in addition to paying the required sub access fee).

anyways bit random rant i guess. but ehhh, maybe someday someone will do a proper star trek mmo. maybe someday when cbs paramount wisens up and trekkies stop buying the gobs of low quality overpriced merch they devalue the trek IP with across the board. it’s actually impressive the gaul with which they operate.

Noone will put WOW monies into MMOs anymore, you must let it go…
Also STO got quite good after PWE buyout.

Let me rephrase that for you, STO got better after the PWE buyout. But, it had plenty of room for improvement and still does. I also think they need to cut their ship prices in half.

I mean, I agree with a lot of that but I will say that if you just play STO from a story perspective and run through some of the episodes it really is pretty fun and can at times feel like you are playing your own little version of the show. I haven’t really got into the foundry (player created) stuff yet but I imagine there is some good stuff there as well.
