STO has been in a content drought (though the Foundry does have some great player generated missions) and this seems like the kind of large scale event the game has been screaming for.

Some of the most fun I've had in the game is when they have a test server weekend the Dev's start dropping droves of Borg into social areas. Hopefully this will bring some of that fun to the masses in the live servers.

@Quarlo

To be fair, though, the recent content drought is partly due to the fact that the first section of Season 4 to go live (the new ground combat) also introduced some significant bugs not seen on the test server.

The rest of the Season 4 content has been delayed while these bugs are isolated and squashed. That's the situation as I understand it, anyway.

Cheers,

If only STO's version of the Borg offered a real fight.

Actually, as a VA I'd really love to spend my time fighting stuff that isn't Borg. They present no challenge and all endgame content revolves around them. It gets old fast....

@Cavadus I'm sick of borg too, hopefully this puts a nail in the coffin for this chapter and we can move on to Undine, Iconian, anything really.

Um, have you been fighting them in Season 4? They got a LOT nastier.

Agreed.

I'm /not/ directing this comment at anyone specifically in this thread (the idea has been in my mind for a while now), but:

One of the things which makes me shake my head on a regular basis while reading Massively -- the way some folks choose to defend their dislike of Star Trek Online with "facts" which aren't true.

I absolutely respect and defend people's right to dislike any game they choose -- but if you're going to cite facts to damn a game, it really helps if all of those facts are accurate,

Some of the worst STO haters I've seen on Massively typically reference game flaws which no longer exist in the game; flaws which were fixed or removed long ago.

Not suggesting that STO is perfect, or that the improvements over the last 18 months will turn an enemy of the game into a fan -- only suggesting that that the game /has/ changed noticeably over the last year-and-a-half, and that it continues to change.

If you're going to hate Star Trek Online, feel free, but I pay more attention to any criticism rooted in what the game is now, versus what it was at launch.

Cheers,

Yeah, I've done every single STF in Season 4 at VA level. No, sir, they do *NOT* get nastier, let alone "a lot".

lol

The Borg have been upgraded in many of the non-Special Task Force missions. The STFs themselves have not been upgraded yet, as the article (and posts on the STO website) do indicate.

Thanks for the news, Brandon. I'd heard that new Borg content was coming, but I didn't know any of the specifics you mentioned.

I tend to be one of those players who spends his time actually /playing/ STO, as opposed to scouring the STO forums for information, so I appreciate you doing the intel gathering here. :-)

Cheers,
