They've made leveling quite a bit faster. It takes me only a few hours of gameplay, and I'm a very lightweight player. I don't min/max, I don't optimize for the absolute best numbers, I just play. If you're a serious player who knows how to get all the best out of your ship and crew, you'll probably do it even faster than I do.

Many people think they've made it too easy, but I like it as it is.

Do you mean playing time or missions or??? Because if you mean playing time it can several hours if you do it right.

Before they rebalanced the way leveling works, it took me about two weeks to get from Commander 30 to Commander 36. I'm a slow player who stops to enjoy the scenery and screw around in Earth Space Dock.

However, since I've come back around Jan 12th, I'm about 1 exploration mission shy of Rear Admiral 40. So it won't take you long. Especially if you do the story missions, which I skipped out on because I don't like high yield plasma torpedoes.

Anywhere from a day to a week depending on how much you play. That said, doing lots of Doff missions will increase your speed.

I'm at level 26 with just under 15 played hours. I expect to get to 30 (captain) in about 2-3 hours of play. 4 levels is roughly 6-7 missions, at around 20 minutes per mission.

If you jump into the 'red alert' Borg incursions if there happens to be one in your sector block, that will kick you up quite a bit. I've quite literally advanced a character an entire grade simply due to those things.

Personally, I think leveling in this game is too easy, but lacking more content, it's probably best to allow people to get to VA as quick as possible. However that's a discussion for another thread (which I am sure has been discussed, likely ad nausium).

Necro post!

What's the rush? Once you get to Vice Admiral ... then what? Man, slow down and enjoy the ride.
