In the fine print it says:

Quote:
Guild Flagships and Legacy Stronghold Storage will be available to players as part of the official launch of Galactic Strongholds.
The Official Launch is not till August of 2014.

Eric or Tait can you clarify that Guild Ships and Legacy Storage will not be coming in 2.8, but rather with the free-to-play launch of the expansion?

Although a feature like this would certainly be pretty awesome, it is not what "trophies" will do in your Stronghold. The video was more to imply that you can earn awesome rewards for your house by killing things

Damn. Ah well, can't have everything, I guess. Thanks for the clarification.

Your are correct Oofalong. Those features will come with the official launch of the expansion, not with subscriber early access in June.

So are people going to be able to access fleet chat from their homes? Cuz really I see the majority never actually hanging out in their homes and still spending most of their time on the fleet since that is where all the recruiting for op runs and stuff goes on.

I imagine people will simply move the bulk of their chat to DK/Coruscant chat instead of Fleet Chat.

You know, on the morning of big updates like this it is a tradition that I stop in the morning and get the team stocked up on some Starbucks. We too are here to make coffee disappear (or a mocha in my case)
