Feesha and Disco Skins: What Are They Good For?
Tonight we dive into this month's "features" and discuss the Salvager and Section 31 Refits. These two skins DO have a benefit, but is it worth the cost? Only you can decide, BUT we will tell you what they factually do, and what kind of time or grind benefits they may provide. Are either of these game changing? MAYBE. But perhaps only for a specific portion of the community. PLUS, DJz and the crew speak to you in Klingon, which is surprisingly good, and lastly, we apparently are shaming DJz cause of his awesome parenting skills.... or lack thereof.

Rom Math Revealed - Burning is BACK!
Tonight's show didn't disappoint as we finally iron out the details of Rom and how he works, and determine if Soggy was in fact correct with his hypothesis. But, in doing so, the return of a mechanic long lost to the community is discussed, and both sides of the issue are discussed. Is station burning good? bad? or need tweaking? PLUS we examine the month to date with dabo payouts, and other payouts combined to determine this months overall 'feel' with rewards. Finally, the treasury mechanic is discussed in a brief, yet informative segment about WHY players may or may not feel animosity towards this new hybrid feature.

Did Scopely Break 5th Grade Math?
There's not much to say on this one other than, 'scopely..... fixxxxxx iitttttttt.' rounding doesn't round anymore. 1 equals 0, and 1.5 equals 17, Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... MASS HYSTERIA! My head hurts. Take an aspirin before listening. Love, DJz Visit our website www.talkingtrekstfc.com

Lastly, we dive into the lockbox and set the record straight on a few key aspects of this building, and find that it's actually quite familiar....

Strong Week 1 Finish After Shaky Start
Last night we chill on the highway yet again in another Talking in Carz with DJz. While some players prefer this format, (DJz loves the production and goofiness that a studio show brings) it pretty much always DOES deliver some good conversation and content. While the Treasury tax has been repealed, players continue to speculate on it's origins, and Bubba Jo earns his own pitchforks with his proposed solution. Plus, other strong points this week include F2P presentation on Amalgam, increased Rare Directive sourcing, increased officer sourcing (through multiphasics and dabos/epic luck), and increased event reward payouts. Lots of topics on this EXTENDED version of Talking in Carz with DJz (it was a long drive lol) Please share with your team, sub to our channels, and ENJOY the show! please visit us online at www.talkingtrekstfc.com

New Arc Introduction Tainted by New Tax - Scopely Speechless
Does that read like a headline? It should. The first part of this show starts relatively typical as we break down the valuable meta and events this month that are gonna require VERY careful planning and even then, players will likely have to choose a direction to pursue this month, as it would be very very expensive to do them all. However, the conversation transitioned in the second segment of the show to surround one singular item: The Treasury Tax. The stage was opened to players to explain their take, and send a message to Scopely. Though some opinions varied in one direction or another, the UNIVERSAL sentiment was: "Scopely, This. Is. BAD." Hear players reactions LIVE on the latest hot button issue spreading through the community. Please share with your team, sub to our channels, and ENJOY the show!

RoA Pt2: The Only Things In Life That are Certain Are Death, & Taxes
The title speaks for itself. Rules of Acquisition Pt2 (and final) is here, and Scopely has not disappointed in their ability to channel their inner Ferengi. Let's be clear, there are several potentially GOOD things this arc. I will reserve judgement until we're able to see more. But from right out the gate, there's a thing or two that is most certainly and clearly BAD. And one of them is that Scopely has quite literally enacted it's first TAX on the game as it pertains to raiding. Why was this done? What was the logic? We attempt to break it down, and give you more information about the upcoming arc, all the while answering your questions about this upcoming Month. Get ready, this one is a doosey.
