Getting new toon to the top with gear, reputation, ambassady stuff, getting DOFFs, lockbox ships... it is not worth it. If you are not addicted to Star Trek (STO being only modern ST game) then avoid it. I sadly am an ST addict so getting out of STO is pretty hard for me
Sadly I'm a bit of a ST addict... Luckily, I used to run wierd ship setups, that may never have been optimal for winning, but relied heavily on piloting skills. I guess these should not fare much worse now... afai remember, it was spam that turned PvP into PvE that ruined the fun for me...

Hmm... I never believed much in maxing out gear, but rather on flexible tactics, but I fear not having a reputation will put me at a severe disadvantage... As for money, I spent so much before I left I already have the best ships i think. That tap, however, is closed, because of a forum related issue...

Isn't whining and crying supposed to be half the fun? No, wait... that's hearing the enemy whining and crying! :p Well, I'm about as dedicated a player as ever visited STO! True, not dedicated to success or winning... but to finding obscure and new ways of killing enemies.

Spike? I think I have a tac in a dedicated tric-bomber build that would (sometimes) rock the battlefield back in the day... Has this build become less relevant? (Saw the latest patch notes. Tric mines give damage to self now? How about to allies? That would really spice up my world...)
