DevChat Reveals Details on Progression

DevChat Reveals Details on Progression - Star Trek Online - MMORPG.com

The transcript for the October 8th DevChat is now available for viewing. Apparently, a bit of a bug has been going around the Cryptic Studios offices and the developers weren't on hand for the chat, but Cryptic Studios' Community Lead Awen and Community Representative Rekhan were there to field questions on ship tiers and player progression.

Some excerpts from the transcript below:

On skill points:

<Cryptic_Rekhan> <OuroborosAgain> When you gain skill points is there a pool so you can either use them for yourself of a BO? or do your BOs have to do things with you to skill up?

 

<Cryptic_Rekhan> You gain skill points for your captain, and skill points for your Bridge Officers enter a different pool. As you complete episodes, you'll gain skill points for both sets. The Bridge Officer pool goes across all your Boffs, even if they weren't stationed or on the ground with you during particular episode. We did it this way because who's to say your other Boffs weren't contributing "off-camera"?

On "Retcons":

<Cryptic_Rekhan> <CaptLykke> Q: If you use your skill points in one way, and find out that its wrong path you taken, can you reset them, and use them in the correct way you really wanted ?!

<Cryptic_Rekhan> We hope so. "Retcons" aren't an easy system to implement. There are a lot of economic and gameplay factors that go into skill reassignment. We're hard at work on getting a system in place that makes sense within the confines of the game world, though.
