The Double Reward Q bonus and why the "normal" booster doesnt feel worth buying
 
a 20% XP Boost is, leveling wise, insignificant especially when i'm looking at the price tag.


But the Q boost felt good. Turning the level grind into a fun experience. I skipped th lame content (lame equals tedious) and just whooshed to captain in a few hours of dedicated gaming.


I like that.

I woudl actually pay for THAT kind of boost.


But not 20% no... thats just.... asking to much of me.


btw: i mean skill points gathered and merits. i dont need double emblems or tokens for this...

I feel the same way. Though perhaps it should only be available to players that have ranked up their main toon to VA, otherwise STO would seem way to short when compared to other MMOs (more than it already is)

So I'd like to see a way to have these double xp boosts (maybe not emblems) in the C-Store for use on alts only.

For those of us such as me who love ranking numerous toons, speeding up the process would actually benefit Cryptic becasue the more toons people create, the more character slots people buy, and the more species people buy too.

I'd like to propose a go between personally. 50%. That way Ground kills get 1.5x their basic 1 skill point, changing it to 1.5 (rounds to 2, as opposed to the current 1.2 rounding to 1) and the mission rewards don't get excessive at the same time.


Just my 2 cents.



All that said though - wouldn't buy these on the C-Store personally :)

I agree with that, the price Tag should reflect the desire for said product.

I finished off leveling two of my Characters with the Q-Boost. Something I wouldn't have done with out the extra 50%.

The other side of the Opinion is : That by spending less $Time$ leveling it would cost STO the money one would pay for the Subscription Time it takes to Level. Assuming of course one doesn't have a Life Time Sub, in which case I think Lifers should receive a 10% Bonus up to Captain Rank.

As for adding the Q-Boost or something of near equal % gain to the C-Store, I'd rather see it remain a Special Occasion Only, like Holidays and Anniversaries.
