Priority One Supplemental | Cryptic Visit 2013 – Al Rivera

CrypticVisitRoundHello Captains! This is a very special presentation of Priority One Podcast recorded on Monday,  July 15th, 2013 – on location – at Cryptic Studios!!

With Elijah visiting friends in San Francisco, it only made sense to schedule a visit with the team at Cryptic Studios!…

…..Fortunately, they came to the door when the team showed up.

Our first report for you is an audio interview with Lead Designer, Al “CaptainGeko” Rivera. Not only did CaptainGeko take time away from his schedule to sit down with us, but he also acted as our most gracious host. A very special thanks to Mr. Rivera for his patience and hospitality! So sit back and have a listen as we review current player concerns and look into the future of Star Trek Online!

    Vote kick would be the best way to deal with afk players IMO

    YAY! Romulan Quads! As for leeches I would say join the STF Elite channels. Its hardcore players so you need to know what your doing but no leeches.

    Crafting would get a major boost if you mass produce booster packs for rep and fleet holdings. Also be able to craft large booster packs or special booster packs.

    You guys could at least try to ask something about the PVP lies that this guy has made for years.
    But I guess that is much to ask.

    I really didn’t hear much about the KDF, It was Mostly FED/ROM things… Only the “Planned Schedule” thing for KDF ships. I just hope you keep to it with your word this time with the new Expansion. And that “Other Reasons” for Broadsiding Doesn’t sound too much promising. And BTW with the KDF, The New Story Content, MIGHT need some more “effort” and remember, Most KDF = lvl 50. And therefore, we haven’t got a lvl 50 ship (NON-FLEET) for near 1.5 to 2 years.
