Bah, empty words. Exactly what people said when Dili was introduced, when lockbox ships came, when the fleet system came (an even bigger grind) and now with this small addition. Still, people adapt and learn to play the game in it's new version as well. Grinding a character to the top of the tree is still no slower than other MMOs. Grinding out the rep stuff is no slower than grinding out a XII set in the STFs. (barring cases of extreme luck)

Try to look at it as an increased level-cap.

Nice to see the run-up to the new Season update is proceeding normally.

It's also a fact that more players come than leave. The queues are still alive and kicking. (I can remember time when getting a match could take an hour!)
