That is a point of view and I don't share it. I am certainly in the minority and that's ok. I also can't keep Cryptic from doing anything
But I can express an opinion because this is the Feedback forum. I have added feedback.
Since Gateway has added the Fleet Holding, it's become more useful because people can contribute to Holdings without being in-game. So, the idea that Gateway is useless without a DOff feature is not accurate.
All I'm saying is that because the current DOff system includes rewards that directly affect the leveling of a character (and BOffs for that matter), then a person would not have to play the game (past level 10 I think)
of the DOff system. Sure, there is more to the game than DOffing, of course there is. But Cryptic's goal is to get people to play the game by inserting incentives a player would want/need in order to log on ... and the current DOff system does that because clearly, DOffing is popular enough to want it
of the game. Frankly, I wonder why DOffing includes player experience points anyway. But, meh.
So what incentive would Cryptic have to allow players to play the game without logging in? I'm guessing ... none ... other than giving what players want. Admittedly, that makes sense (give the consumer what they want and they will be happy enough to come back). But just because the players want something doesn't mean they'll get it (T5 Connie - Holy Phasers there are A LOT of requests for that, almost weekly a new thread is made for it).
Whatever Cryptic decides is fine with me because no matter what, I will play STO and use the Gateway. I was just sharing an opinion and my singular opinion will not make or break the decision
