I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that the reason you want this is so that you can get each toon into PvP but if not... um... rep is pretty much the end game (lack of) content in this game. After T5 there is nothing, nothing, for your toon to do and you want to
to skip that?
I'm not even going to get into how silly buying a level 50 toon, and thus paying to
play the game, sounds to me...
But sure. If you want to pay 1000 zen or whatever to not play the game, go ahead. In fact, let's just remove all the levelling and and rep systems, let's just stick to only one tier of gear and get rid of all those tiresome story missions and all the rep grind content used for getting all that stuff and just make everything available for zen.
Why not ask for the levelling and reputation processes and the game in general to be made more interesting? Doesn't that make a little more sense than basically asking to pay2notplay a free2play game?
ok, so the lv50 toon thing might be wishful thinking... but in its defence... we've already done the content to death...so what difference does it make if was to buy a lv50 and save myself the drudge of going back through all the story missions.
as i mentioned these kind of unlocks may only be for people that have already completed all the content or more back to the OP's topic of rep, guys that have already completed the rep grind.
New players coming in would still have to do these things before being able to purchase the unlocks for alts etc. you see? but it would eliminate the rep system grind for the those of us that hate it... the purpose of this thread.... if rep is the endgame in STO then god help us all... cause its all end and no game (no fun either).
End game in STO is STF's replaying episodes at your leisure, or various other multitude of missions in the Q's (rom, nukara etc) or the occasional dose of pvp for sure. you're arguement of pay2notplay is mute.... otherwise the rep grind is a grind to not play.... course we play stuff with our fancy sets and weapons!! I just dont like having to level a toon through rep for a month to have the pleasure to grind my gear (which i dont mind doing grinding the gear makes sense) when ive already done it before multiple times...
Pay2notplay is the farthest thing from my mind when i make the case for a zen rep unlock or level lv 50. Its pay 2 play what i want when i want NOW. Grinding through the rep system again is not playing the game, grinding my gear direct IS, playing missions with my gear... IS, pvping IS. I could grind through it for a month(grumbling all the way) for free..or Id like to be able to choose to pay to unlock it NOW since ive already done it before...
