    I will miss the foundries.  I enjoyed the stories and canon a lot.  For me it was a big part of making the content interesting beyond endgame as it was often created by truly passionate Star Trek folks.  Some were great, some were meh…but still were different and unique.

    Agreed on the dev gone thing. I also think there is a new exec in the office thats trying to make a name. First the “anti-gold selling” rules, now this.

    Someone either bought ARC games or they are looking to tighten up and make more $$$ or prepping to sell this off.

    Be on the look-out for ban hammer for silly things, increase in dil costs to get ppl to buy more keys, dil market drop that will make ppl have to buy more keys for same old amount of dil, lower credit/dil rewards…I could go on.

    Not sure on their licensing, that could be a factor. If they have an end date for sunset, this could just be a push to conserve $.

    I truly dont want to see things coming to a close and hope i’m wrong. But I’m starting to smell a sell off to DBG.

    Not watched the vid yet but from reading forums but I understand that its due to lack of knowledge, spaghetti code and people leaving but shouldn’t the solution be hire someone to fix it/learn it/maintain it NOT shut it down. To me it does not give a good  impression for the future of STO.

    All we can hope for it that other changes are made and things introduced to get around problems it will cause, you can bet that shortly after the 11th April we will get and endeavour to complete a foundry mission.

    Lets hope the people freed up can get us the Jem’Hadar Veteran ship “soon” I mean its only been eight months since V.I.L came out and how many new ships have been released since then, ten plus or something like that.

    Boy I hope you are wrong, I just spent money on this, I do not want a repeat of Wildstar.

    I wanted to try Wildstar, but their goofy anti-hacking code wouldnt allow me to login. Since my telco is off a cell tower it rotates IP, their code looks for this and forces a relog. I would sign in and within secs I was told to relog in again due to IP change. FROM the splash game login, wasnt even able to create a toon.

    Month later, I heard they shut down. eh…

    In my case, I tried (PC Player) it, really liked it so I blew some money on it not much. Then no more than a couple of weeks later they said we are shutting the doors.
