T5 is endgame ships, so in a sense it's eternal, at least until T5 + 1 ships come out on the C-Store. Finally, silver players need to grind dil for T4+ ships (or use the c-points -dil exchange); gold players get 1 T4 and 1 T5 ship for free (and don't get me started on the VA token because you're only "being deprived" of the 3 vanity VA ships on fed side and 2 on the KDF side - I could care less about those).
You didn't understand what I had in mind.
Granted I didn't explain all that well.
Let's call the old progression for "normal".
Tier 1 = 0.5 * normal
Tier 2 = normal
Tier 3 = twice the rime to level Tier 2
Tier 4 = twice the time to level Tier 3
Tier 5 = twice the time to level Tier 4
Tier 6 = twice the time to level Tier 5
The lack of content in this model isn't a problem as this game is a grindfest anyway.
