50% off the cost for each consecutive toon?
 
i suggest, that to take the grind out of the rep for consecutive toons, for each character you put through a rep system, the cost should be halved each time.

first toon= current/normal cost
second toon= half cost ie 50% of total/normal cost.
third= half that, ie 75% off the total cost.

if worried about abuse by people starting their 20th toon, grinding it to 50 & doing the rep for the dil payout, remove dil from the equation on rep systems in favor of being only the specific marks until the rep is complete.
at which point completing an stf or similar will have the option of dil or marks on completion, depending what people want.

Probably been suggested many times by other people but instead of marks gained being character bound how about the marks for the reputation system be account bound. So if you have a toon that has a access of 7000 omega marks any other toon on your account can use those marks for there projects. And also anything unlocked from the Rep store should be account bound until the item is equipped then binding it to that toon.

The reputation system should have been account wide NOT character based. Just made it take a little longer but once unlocked all toons have access to it that way later if you create a new toon its done and ready when you hit lv50. You would still have to grind out dilithium and such to buy the pieces but atleast all the tiers would be complete.

And do what exactly ... PvP? I say give a discount for each toon / tier reached. 5% and cap total discount at 50%.

This is ideal, the grind is preventing me from being serious on more than 1 toon, and that will limit what I buy in the future. Do you think I will buy an escort for my engineers?

I think they will do this though, like how the nerf the starbase requirements, after many have completed them a bunch so that they drain as much materials as they can.

I did buy the vesta on sale, but as a science testing platform. My toons have been relegated to hanging out at the Academy building up their doff crews and acquiring CXP should the rep system ever be made more manageable. They are well geared though so make great alts for ISE to convert to dilithium. By the time I complete them all the first is off cool down. It has streamlined my play and made me a lot of money though, so maybe the rep system has been more useful to me than not. Perhaps after a year of not running nukara and romulan mark missions I will take on the challenge of getting another up to speed.

Or more true choice marks, marks from doff missions, and choice marks from PvP.

.

That is exactly why on my other 7 toons I have only bought the 1 necessary rep set for them and 1 rep torpedo and left it at that while my main toon I did everything on. While if it was account wide all that time and those marks I spent grinding out the rep I would have used to buy gear instead.
