Heidy breaks the Fourth Wall…. Just a little. Entirely not serious.
Over the weekend I have played through the new story missions that came out with Victory is Life, and yeah, it was all over rather quickly. Only six new missions for a big arc like this seem a bit skinny, but what we got was some of the best STO missions yet.
Oh right, SPOILERS AHEAD.
Whew! That was a lot of Ship Mastery grinding over the weekend!
See, Cryptic decided to nerf the amount of Ship Mastery XP awarded in Red Alerts, so there is a lot more grinding needed to get Ship Traits. On top of that, the new Jemmie Vanguard ships come with a new feature, namely a level VI Mastery that allows that Ship Trait to become Account-Wide. This is not a bad feature, except the part about level VI requiring roughly the same amount of XP from level I to level V! Which means the amount of grinding just DOUBLED.
So, yeah. After a weekend of grinding, I still only got 3 of the 4 Jemmie Vanguard ships done. But after flown all four ships for a bit, I want to write a quick impression on those ships.
Alright folks, Heidy is in a mood today. Move right on if you don’t want to read a rant post. You have been warned!
I saw the ad to this app game called “Girls’ Frontline” today, and I just feel obligated to say something about it.
I haven’t done much with the new expansion yet, but Fungi and I did make new Jem’Hadar toons and ran through the first story mission together, so I figure I’ll record some of my first impressions of Victory is Life.
Cryptic just published the stats of the new DS9 lockbox ships. Now these days I don’t really want to dive into discussions of ship stats anymore, but the JH Battlecruiser here needs to be highlighted.
