Star Trek Online patches in improved rewards for daily patrols

If you feel like you’re just not getting enough from going on patrol in Star Trek Online before today, apparently the designers agreed. The latest patch for the game (a quick followup to the major Awakening update) has increased rewards for patrol missions run for the first time in the day. Twice as many marks will be awarded for the first run, and 1000 Dilithium Ore (up from 500) will also be awarded for the first run. This should at least make your first round of a patrol more rewarding, although due to known issues a few of the delta patrols are temporarily disabled.

The patch also includes a variety of bug fixes, some of them related to patrols in the game and some of them just being unpleasant issues (like Kelvin Divergence items not being properly bound to account). They’re small changes, but hopefully they’ll be the sort of small changes that are pleasantly beneficial for players rather than neutral or worse. We’ve also got an interview about the game’s latest update and future development, if you hadn’t already seen that.

What, not enough players are bothering with them, how sad :)

I do like the five new patrols, although they can be a bit overwhelming if you’ve been away for awhile and haven’t tweaked your ship gear and skills since you last played.

If you’re a recent returnee, you might want to switch your grouping mode to “open teaming” for the patrols so that you have a chance of entering the instances with another starship captain.

It’s good too hear that the rewards have been boosted. While I didn’t feel the payouts were offensively cheap, they were a little on the low side.

Given that the patrols can be a bit crazy (as above) better rewards means more motivation to take on those tasks.

15 marks were offensively cheap. Now it’s 45. It will be probably less since it’s a bonus mark weekend is going on.
