Leveling is too fast
 
People are hitting the cap before they're even halfway done with Romulan content. This seems a bit excessive, hitting the cap before you've finished even half the missions in the game.

There are bugs in the Doff system that are handing out too much XP. People are sending Doffs out on missions, logging out, going to bed, logging in the next day and finding they gained 4 full levels while they were sleeping.

From what I can tell some of this is due to the fact that all of the story line missions plus the Featured Episodes are now sequential. The Featured Episode were always an additional set of missions outside of the general leveling missions. With them adding into the storyline gating system currently in testing, it is throwing the leveling curve off.

My suggestion is to remove the Featured Episodes from the storyline path. Then players can do them or not. They were never made to fit in to the storyline original, and their inclusion actually causes story line inconsistencies. For example, the "first time" that you meet Franklin Drake is actually in the Romulan Story arc, but he is the mission giver for the Devidian series that is in the Klingon story arc. So, we have the situation where we are interacting with Drake before the storyline originally introduces us to him.

Yes, there is this too. The fact is, if we are forced to play all the content we will be max level long before we can complete all of it (Fed side).

Lvl Fast
 
Maybe they want us to level fast so we cant test the end game stuff and when it goes live the Xp will drop down to normale level

I wouldn't worry too much about the levelling speed. I think it has probably been accelerated to better facilitate testing.

A dev posted eariler that the leveling was sped up.

Hasn't been confirmed that it's just for testing though...

right now, patrol missions are pointless. You can easily skip them due to the fact that it's currently approximately 2 missions per level atm. Add in the Doff xp bugs and no wonder people have hit cap waaay before the story content runs out.

They mentioned that it was for the Tribble test only. They need this to collect as much data as possiable.
