I don't understand, why would you DOUBLE the dyson rep costs? This rep is supposed to be different, but this puts it close to the current reps.

I see what you REDACTED there...

Buffs granted by Duty Officers proc powers no longer persist when the triggering power is unequipped.


Nice!

When does all of the long ago promised PVP upgrades get released, Cold? It's been quite a few years now, and we're all VERY excited to finally see all the content for PVP your boss promised us. I can even link the promises he and your co-workers have said if you like?

Just out of curiosity. can we get another one of those wallpapers with all the icons of the starships again? We're in need of a MAJOR update. Save it for Season 8. I still have the LOR one on my laptop.

As it was, it was pretty easy to get to T5 (granted, it was hyper-accelerated due to Tribb le being in "debug mode" - projects completing in 30s). But I LIKED that. The other reps feel too sluggish, even in the beginning.

FEEDBACK - Revert these changes, please. We understand that you want reputations to be end-game stuff and a bit of a challenge, but making them twice as expensive and grindy isn't the way to do it. You're fixing what isn't broken - the Dyson rep was fine as it was.

Why doubling?

toiva 11-04-2013 04:42 PM

I'm potentially liking the new matte materials for Atrox and Kumari line, but the 900 marks for a single deflector/engine/core/shield and more are way too many.

I was thinking I'd finally get something for my toons other than from the Omega Rep, but probably not with that price.
