Ah, I misread you.

Anyhow, yes, I also feel Cryptic has crossed a few lines. Both in the demand of time/money spent (the two are virtually the same in STO), and the presence of single mechanics that upset the synergy and balance enough to ruin fun when used. That said, (mostly from what I hear) STO is by no means the worst game on the market when it comes to this...

I am worried tho, at the increasing need to spend time/money to be competitive. If it was only time, it wouldn't be so bad, as most people would be held back. The concept of buying time with money allows many players to skip ahead, and this means those who have better access to time than money will be spending all that grind-time at a disadvantage. And that seriously reduces the fun.
