Players will be excited to hear about a large balance pass the Star Trek team is making to the game. The team is taking opportunities to make such drastic changes to Star Trek Online’s experience, feeling that it is important  to setup some guiding principles to ensure that the game gets better. Changes will be applied to a number of systems including weapons, Carrier Pets, careers and some abilities as well.

The goals boil down to these:

  • Increase the fun – Games are about having fun, and players should not be made to feel that their fun is “wrong.”

  • Player investment retains value – While things need to be adjusted, a setup that was optimized before should still be useful and effective afterwards.

  • Choices should be meaningful – Anywhere the game gives you a choice, there should be no choice that you always take nor one you never take.
