Star Trek Online patches in the new Event Campaign system for a Tier 6 ship

No time to re-evaluate the situation, too much plowing ahead making everything worse to do!

Tier 6 ships are not precisely rare in Star Trek Online, but they sure can be expensive. The new Event Campaign system in the game with the latest patch helps ameliorate that expense by offering a Tier 6 ship coupon for clearing multiple events; once you hit 2100 progress, you get your free ship, and fully mining out an event will reward around 700 progress. This coincides nicely with the return of the Kobayashi Maru as a three-week event, giving players ample time and incentive to pick up the rewards from the event itself and make progress toward that free ship.

The event itself is also offering rewards including a mess of Dilithium, loot boxes, specialization points, and a Kobyashi Maru transponder. There are also options for legacy progress for those who have taken part before, as well as the option to just buy out progress of the event for… Zen. The currency you use to buy things like that Tier 6 ship. So that’s a nice option if you want to get everything from the event, we suppose, but probably not as useful if you’re looking for that free ship coupon.

STO= grind, grind and more grind to me.

The story episodes are awesome but yes sadly outside of that it is indeed just one humungous grind after another.

And we got recently the elachi ship – generally speaking its one of the most generous f2p games out there and one reason that despite their significant flaws(especially their server performance) I still buy things there

A little bit annoying that the event only covers 700 of the 2100 grind… that means another two fortnight grind events to follow to complete it… urgh…

One thing they did that I did very much like, however, is that if you started any of the previous ship or anniversary events and hadn’t finished them they have now set them to auto-completed for you. I got a whole bunch of events ships tonight that spanned years of previously unfinished event grinds lol

Another example of why I love STO, and how it is much more generous than its sister game Neverwinter!
