This is something that is still being worked on and discussed internally. Once I have a concrete answer on how it works I will share!

One thing to bear in mind, Dev, is to remember that Fleet's Gen Chat is the hub of our social network.

If we're all moving to Strongholds, be sure to connect the Guild Ships Gen Chat to the Stronghold Gen Chat. We don't want to be 'too' spread out, if you get my meaning.

  • Quick Travel - You can travel to your Stronghold anytime you can use Quick Travel currently. Also, as a subscriber you have a few options on where you can travel to from your Stronghold, including back to the coordinates you just came from.

Let the design team know *we want to be able to talk to our companions in our strongholds!

*By 'We' I mean, players like me who are recording our companion and class stories.

I think I like this idea, in fact I would take it even further. Make a new chat channel that is a global general channel, usable from anywhere.

-eric
Question: With the Stronghold Early Access being moved out of 2.8, will that patch be moved back to its original target date of June 10 (from the earlier Road Map)? Or is that still being determined?

Here are some things I would LOVE to see related to guild flagships. Could you hint if any of these may be or will be possible?

1) Have a legacy perk to travel to Guild Ship.

2) Officers will have 'special' officer room.

3) Able to travel to any planet from the guild ship as a group or alone (perhaps a deployment ship from the guild ship).

4) Have a specific wing in the guild ship through which we are able to board Operations (or take a whole group directly to the entrance of an operation).

5) Guild battle? (Perhaps Galactic Starfighter mode between guilds).

6) Open contest area within the guild ship that will allow for friendly duels and/or practice.

Thanks for all the info so far! I hope Some or most of these features will be available!
