Rethink the craft system
01-09-2013, 08:44 PM
After many months of playing STO, I really love the game. It pays great tribute to Star Trek and the ships and planets in the series. It is also a beautiful game, with the graphics and all.
However, the crafting system could use a little work. It just seems to me that with all the time and effort that goes into getting all of the materials needed to craft things, the end does not justify the means.
I mean, if it takes me a few weeks to gather the material needed to craft a phaser array, I should get more than just a mark VIII when I can just as easily get a mark XI or XII with better properties by either doing an STF or other group event.
So please, either make the requirements less or make the items we get for all the effort with crafting worth our while.
Otherwise, just can the whole crafting system and use that extra space for something better.
Keep up the good work and I look forward to many more patches.
Best Regards and happy gaming,
