    We will be performing shard maintenance on October 17 from 7-9:30 AM Pacific (14:00-16:30 UTC).

    Event Campaign
    • Event Campaigns are a new system where players can participate in a series of upcoming events in order earn a Zen Store coupon for a Tier-6 Starship of their choice!
    • To kick things off, the Kobayashi Maru Featured Task Force Operation will be the first of a series of events to contribute towards Event Campaigns.
    • Players may earn 50 Event Campaign Progress for each day they participate in an eligible event.
    • Additional Event Campaign Progress can be earned by participating in Bonus Days, after the Grand Prize of an eligible event is claimed.
    • Updates include:
    ○ There is an entire tab in the Events UI now dedicated to explaining and celebrating this ongoing activity, as it spans multiple Events that will come and go.
    ○ The amount of Event Campaign Progress required to claim the prize has been reduced to 2100, compared to the previous requirement of 3000.
    ○ Buying out an eligible event will include up to 700 Event Campaign Progress.
    + Each event’s buyout only grants as much Event Campaign Progress as is relative to the amount paid, after pro-rated discounts are applied. This means that paying half price, (because you participated in 7 out of 14 of the required days so far) will grant you 350 Event Campaign Progress. Essentially, you get what you pay for.
    ○ There will still be Bonus Campaign Progress days (formerly “Bonus Coupon Days”), but they will be less frequently present than the previous iteration, and less predictable.
    • For more information, please visit the “Can You Pass Starfleet's Ultimate Test?” blog.

    Event
    Kobayashi Maru Returns!

    • The Kobayashi Maru returns as a Featured Task Force Operation!
    • This event will last for 3 weeks and Captains can earn an all new reward!
    • This updated version of the Kobayashi Maru Event can be accessed via the new Event UI, accessible within your Mission Journal by pressing on the “Events” Tab.
    • Kobayashi Maru Updates:
    ○ A minimum level of 10 is required for participation.
    + All characters must have completed their Tutorial Experience.
    + Romulan and Jem’Hadar characters must have chosen a primary allegiance.
    + TOS-era and DSC-era characters must have traveled to the appropriate timeline.
    ○ There will no longer be a “Timed” and “Untimed” version of the TFO.
    ○ The event version will automatically complete and award rewards when Wave 6 is complete.
    + You must complete Wave 6 to earn your Daily Progress and Event Campaign Progress.
    ○ The failure condition of having all players dead simultaneously, or of having the E.C.S Kobayashi Maru sustain fatal damage, have been removed from the Event version of the map.
    + These conditions remain on the “infinite” version of the TFO only.
    Rewards
    • All players may complete the Kobayashi Maru FTFO in order to earn their Daily Progress once every 20 hours, in addition to TFO’s standard rewards.
    • Earn a total of 14 days’ worth of Daily Progress to become eligible to claim all of these rewards:
    ○ Kobayashi Maru Transponder (and Account-Wide Unlock for Reclaim).
    ○ 50,000 Dilithium Ore (once only).
    ○ 3x Featured TFO Reward Boxes (once only).
    ○ Each gives a choice of 1x Specialization Point or an Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrade.
    • Bonus Rewards:
    ○ After claiming the Grand Prize, you will unlock the option of earning additional Dilithium Ore each day, beginning at 2,500 Dilithium Ore for the first day’s completion.
    • Zen Buyout Option:
    ○ For players interested in instantly completing the Kobayashi Maru FTFO event, we will be offering an updated method for buying out.
    + Within the new Event UI, an option will be presented that allows you to purchase the remaining progress that you need, for a scaling amount of Zen.
    • A Second Chance:
    ○ Progress after the Event has ended will remain in an all new Second Chance interface, allowing the option to buyout rewards long after the Event has expired.
    • Kobayashi Maru Transponder:
    ○ The Kobayashi Maru Transponder is a new reward for completing the Kobayashi Maru on 14 different days.
    ○ This device is capable of summoning the E.C.S. Kobayashi Maru to your position across the vast distances of space.
    ○ When utilizing this device in Sector Space, the crew of this fabled ship appears and offers services such as Bank Access, Mail Access, and more.
    ○ When utilized while in system space, the Kobayashi Maru will arrive to aid in whatever conflicts you might be facing by way of dropping Resupply Pods periodically that will provide combat boosts to you and other nearby players.
    ○ Obtaining the Section 31 Heavy Phaser Rifle on any character on your account will unlock the ability to reclaim the item on other characters, via the Reclaim tab of the Dilithium Store.
    + You may only reclaim this item on characters that do not already own one.
    + For more information, please visit the “Can You Pass Starfleet's Ultimate Test?” blog.

    Legacy Progress
    • Veteran players that have participated in previous Featured TFOs may still be in possession of multiple “Featured TFO Commendation” items, which are no longer used in the new Event System.
    • Players that still have these will be able to turn them in for Daily Progress and Event Campaign Progress.
    • Each upcoming eligible event will have an option to Apply Legacy Progress to the requirements present.
    • For those of you who had past Featured TFO projects still slotted in the old Event Reputation UI, those projects will be auto-completed, granting you the rewards.

    General
    • Added 3 new faction themed starter packs to the Starter Packs tab in the Zen Store.
    ○ One for Federation, one for Klingon, and one for Romulan.
    ○ Also removed the existing faction starter packs.
    + Those who purchased these will still be able to claim the Tier 1 ship they unlocked.
    • Added 3 new Fleet Admiral Faction themed packs to the Faction Bundles tab in the Zen Store.
    ○ One for Federation, one for Klingon, and one for Romulan.
    • Resolved an issue that was preventing Firing arcs from appearing when hovering over space weapons.
    • Fresh installs of STO now start in windowed-maximized.

    Animation
    • Caitians and Ferasans have finally learned how to properly open their mouths.
    • Hair physics have been added to all Caitian and Ferasan hairstyles and fur facial features, including whiskers.
    • Caitian and Ferasan ears are now animated.
    • Hair physics have been added to appropriate male and female hairstyles and mouth accessories for all NPCs and players.
    • NPC and Player Sphere Builder ships now have animated parts.
    • Resolved an animation issue when transwarping in sector space while piloting the Crossfield class.

    Character
    • On Male Starfleet Human characters, Loose Pants (Racing) will no longer clip with the following boots:
    ○ Section 31 boots
    ○ Boot Utility

    Systems
    STARSHIP EMOTES

    • The original set of Starship FX Emotes (now available on the Phoenix Redemption Stores) have been changed from being Powers that you slot into your ability trays, to instead be accessible via the Emotes window.
    • On PC, they may also be executed via chat command once they are unlocked, by typing any of the following:
    /emote Space_Frown
    /emote Space_Llap
    /emote Space_Rockpaperscissors
    /emote Space_Smile
    /emote Space_Thumbsup
    /emote Space_Thumbsdown
    • Both Normal and Advanced versions of "Infected: Manus" are no longer eligible for Random TFO inclusion.
    • Resolved an issue that prevented the Somog duty officer from rewarding Gold-Pressed Latinum.
    • Resolved an issue where the buff icon stacks granted by the Image Refractor and Advanced Engagement System consoles weren't being cleaned up when the shield emptied.
    • Resolved an issue that prevented the turrets from very rare Polaron Beam Turret kit modules from attacking.

    Nice looking update. It's nice to see some better paths to new ships for players not wanting to dump a ton of money or time into the game everyday.

    That's what it says:
    Legacy Progress
    • Veteran players that have participated in previous Featured TFOs may still be in possession of multiple “Featured TFO Commendation” items, which are no longer used in the new Event System.
    • Players that still have these will be able to turn them in for Daily Progress and Event Campaign Progress.
    • Each upcoming eligible event will have an option to Apply Legacy Progress to the requirements present.
    • For those of you who had past Featured TFO projects still slotted in the old Event Reputation UI, those projects will be auto-completed, granting you the rewards.
    But my two slotted events didn't auto-complete, and apparently there's no way to cash in any squirreled away tokens.
    Expect another update soon(?).

    Never mind. The two in-progress Events were Lohlunat and something I didn't write down before canceling. It may have been Q's Winter Wonderland from last year.
