They cut the dil down from stf because they want you playing fleet missions.

The reason you go on elite stf in the future is for borg marks you will need for the gear at t5.
And so there is no reason to play ground or play normal or play any of the harder ones anymore.

And sorry to disappoint but contrary to any game you ever played or ever will play, items do not unlock when you level
So after you unlock the permission to unlock you unlock the item. THEN you buy it.

That's what is so intuitive about it.

Leveling is unlocking PERMISSION to unlock items. Heheh, everytime I type that, I can't help picturing 1 person sitting in a chair in front of another guy and explaining this like it made sense, I would love to hear that convo and take notes, that guy can sell anything.

But maybe he said something like this, this system is perfectly suited to what our metrics tell us is our average user is like. Our math shows us a 60 % decrease in time taken to get the gear.
They will be thankful we are now giving them a way to see how far they have progressed while basing the whole system on their habbits in addition to reducing their workload, more than cutting it in half !!1on111
At the same time we give people the freedom to choose what they want to unlock at each level.

Anyway the biggest problem I see with it all isn't that season 7 on it's own isn't necessarily all that great - the problem is they chose to take stf's down in building it.

And so the success of season 7 is also about topping and compensating for the old stf's.

The difference being you could have added without taking away. If people didn't like the rep part so what, they still had stf now they don't have that anymore it's all up to the rep system to carry everything.
