How to ask questions:
Formulate your questions as clear as possible. Try to ask only important questions. Use the search function before asking any questions, some questions may have already been answered.

Wow, so we have now jumped straight from winter 2016 to 2017? Where had the summer 2017 gone :O

 

anyway, to the question.

 

When can we expect Ellydium LRF to arrive (approx. weeks from now (January 3rd))? I would like to know this due to some financial matters. Thank you for your answer.

CinnamonFake (Posted )

The ships from Ellydium will be appearing during next year. We can't say in what order for now

Will the rest of the alien ships be released one by one or will you release more at the same time? How long a delay should we expect?

CinnamonFake (Posted )

One by one, during the year. Of course there'll be more new stuff with it, like new OS for example, planned on Summer

Will PvP ever allow slotting ships of rank 10 with rank 15? Going up against Antares, which in the right hands, can be tricky and is usually best countered with another Antares or ofc Sirius and I slot Antares with other t5's for CTB but in other modes I can't use mine but go up against one pretty regularly.

This is only a suggestion if the matchmaker is going to keep allowing lower ranks (10) in higher ranks (15).

Also in CTB (T5) I had a rank 6 in with me. REALLY? (not much in the way of help)...

CinnamonFake (Posted )

MM is always working with highest rank ship in the slots

Ok so what about the loyalty from Ellydium,as the description says,we can earn xenochips from the station,just like we do with the tasks,so will we get other methods of obtaining them aside the daily tasks and tournaments before 17?

CinnamonFake (Posted )

It will be known after January 17, for now xenochips is the only way to get needed materials for Thar'Ga.

1) Will there be an Ellydium/Alien Destroyer(I'm not refering at the Destroyer 'Andromeda' Spec Ops) and if yes, when likely?
2) Why you introduce a new grind to make it 'a fair start for all to grind the new ship' just to throw the normal grinders(player that don't pay) in their nuts with giving money thrower container to bypass the grind to these?
3) Will you finally introduce a tier-based(tier 1 - rank 1-3|tier 2 - rank 4-6|tier 3 - rank 7-9|tier 4 - rank 10-12|tier 5 - rank 13-15) contract system instead of your current fufu penalizing one, that disable any progression for those playing r12 and less with already unlocked r13 ships?

CinnamonFake (Posted )

1) We had plans for Ellydium ships of every role, but I can't confirm actual destroyers in this tree

CinnamonFake (Posted )

2) New system for obtaining needed components will be introduced of course. As always it will make possible to craft ships without payment. New ships also will be introduces with special time-limited event missions

CinnamonFake (Posted )

3) New contract system (for the certain ranks) is in development

When do you plan on simplifying currencies? My poor little brain has no idea how to build stuff anymore because there are far too many layers of currencies and not enough information in-game about them.

CinnamonFake (Posted )

We had a plans for symplifying currencies, now the situation changed a little. I believe, first we will make loyalty system easier

When we can have a game more honest on the price of new things, and when we can see this game more meritocratic about skilled module and no automatic things?and finally when we can have a nerf on remote minelayer and vacuum laser (pvp is full of vigliant with 8k range.... )

CinnamonFake (Posted )

Nerf isn't in our plans. Strong countermeasures is.Some old ship rework and new ellydium ships will be able to take it. About Leagues, there'll be special promo accounts for playing in tournaments, it will make every team completely equal a the point of technology

Will you remove the Interceptor blind spots?, the original introduction for the blind spots was related to turnkeys (automovement.) With that component completely removed should the blind spots also be removed.  As I might have mentioned before dogfights simply come down to the most maneuverable interceptor.  This is a very frustrating addition to the game for me and pilots that enjoy interceptors.  This also affects rotational circling of enemies and more importantly forcing interceptors to slow down.  With there being more and more anti interceptor weapons (auto aim,instant hit weapons, 10K ms projectiles, destro one hit weapons . . . ) to interceptors more than ever would it not make sense to give a small bone to them.

CinnamonFake (Posted )

I have added it in suggestion list, it's still under discussion. Trying not to make already powerfull inties even more powerfull.

Well we haven't really got our answers yet so:

Will you remove those 100 credit drops?

(Yes I asked this again just so the post wont get deleted but in vain I suppose.)

 

CinnamonFake (Posted )

It's much more rarely drops from recently, someday they'll be gone)

Will we get more storage place in the future? The 1500 starting to be not enough.

CinnamonFake (Posted )

Yep, we had plans for increasing storage space, but not so much. Trading should make your items work

Can you give the guard ships their original 6 guns/weapons back that they had in the closed beta? Then it was considered overpowered but now it wouldn't be, because that's basically what the Mass accelerator gave us with the extra 25% increase.

CinnamonFake (Posted )

The current weapon system was born from previous one. We didn't think to go back with it, every new weapon should be adapted for certain class.

Will the NY weapons (Phase Suppressor NY, Mass Accelerator NY, and Flux Phaser NY) be removed on the 17th? Also when will the trading ACTUALLY be implemented? We were promised trading...

Trading will be implemented as soon as it will be ready, but not in January 17 update. We will try to deliver some new info on it in the next Dev blog

Will trading be limited to blueprints or will it include other items (resources)?

In time. Traiding will be expanding

1)İs Mauler gonna get special modules(soon or late)?

2)İs there a plan for new skill sets for standard classes(guard,engineer etc)?

3)İs there any new module for standard classes?

CinnamonFake (Posted )

Mauler will get its rework, but I can't say when at the moment, we want to rework all the old ships in time. New sets of skills for ships is a part of it's rework and will appear not for ship class, but for the particular ship.

*1 - Nowadays new players ask like this:"wht's the best faction?" etc. but quickly they realize that factions (and 3 old stations) are not so much important.

Q1: Will you rework/adapt the faction implemetation and game-story immersion?

*2 - Group and corporation competition is open to ships from all faction even in mixed ship sets ( in piers 1-4)

Q2: Will there be faction limited competitions, like Federation dreadnaughts protected only by federation class ships vs Empire dread w/ empire ships in future? (faction based corps even?) Would result in  loyalities like in the Harry Potter Hogwarts - 4 houses effect - not?

CinnamonFake (Posted )

We want to expand the story in the near future. Factions struckture rework is not planned at the moment, as well as faction limited competotions. But it seems like a nice idea)

*3 - NY weapons (reminded by PapyMB):

Q3: When they'll be removed, will they evaporate into oblivion dev/zero - or will they disassemble into parts and materials for the players?

CinnamonFake (Posted )

They're gone from January 17, and waiting for the next NY to come

Are there items and things listed as obtainable right now in components and crafting (i.e. Crystal Plate Hull Blue Print), that are NOT actually obtainable at the moment such as Electrum? IF SO... Is there a list of these (currently unobtainable items), and where is it located? If there is no list, would you please provide one for us?

 

EDIT: To elaborate and be more specific about my question, I'm asking because there are components and items that, no matter what I seem to do, i just can't get EVER which is very fishy to me. HOWEVER, the description states very clearly how to get them. Yet no matter how often you do the specified parameters in the item descriptions, i just can't get the Crystal Plate Hull (Blue Print) or Electrum. If these are not obtainable, then IN GAME there should be an annotation that states as such for any item.

CinnamonFake (Posted )

Electrum is not obtainable resource at the moment. It was needed to craft r14 destroyers, so it may become usefull again if they'll return. Blueprints can be collected from iridium bundles.

Will the NY weapons have their special destro damage bonus transferred to their original counterparts when the event ends?

I particularly like how they have that bonus, because the original versions of those weapons are sadly some of the most underused and underrated guns in the game and having that bonus gives them a special purpose.

CinnamonFake (Posted )

Thar'ga weapons have special destro bonus right now, may be something else in the future
