As simple as what the title says.

For me:

Complete rebalance of powers
Quality control
Customer engagement
Grind reduction

For me, doing the above properly will remedy all the main things that made me cancel my sub.

Return to 1.2 and make all them <insert OP comsole here< only equippable on the native ship.

Yeah, we told them that making special consoles truly universal was a bad idea. They didn't listen.

This one change/reversion would be enough to bring me back full time. Stacked console abilities are the main source of reduced fun for me.

Rebalance of cruisers and science ships. While the game shouldn't be cruisers online like it was circa season 3 it shouldn't be escorts online either.

What incentive would there have been to buy the lower-tier ships then? Business-wise, it was a good decision, and one they won't take back (just look at the lockbox consoles, which are the same thing, after all).

A certain re-vamp of some of the powers so that they are all equally valuable per their boff rank level would be nice indeed, but I don't need it to have fun with the game.

Long live the Allmighty God all US game companies worships: The dollar.

So sad that what actually keeps players in the game must take the backseat.

In re discussion of lower tier ships, etc, etc, etc...

Two things:

A) Much like the "discount" being offered on some of the new Fleet ships over on Tribble, they could have revamped the other ships to work in a similar fashion. As they introduce refits, retrofits, fleet variants, etc, etc, etc - the earlier tier version's price could be incorporated as a "discount/voucher" applied to the higher tier.

B) In a similar fashion to what you see with the Nebula or even say the Ody/Bort/etc/etc/etc - they could have worked toward a system of "ship sets" - where you buy the refit, retrofit, and fleet version - you have three items (whether it's wep/wep/console, con/con/wep, def/con/wep, whatever) - you can get a 2- 3- set bonus from buying the ships.

Those are just two things that they could have done, imo, that would have generated increased revenue... rather than driving players from the game.

Then give each ship a "special" console slot. So you can still use your purchased free ability, but can't stack them.

edit: there are also fleet retrofit versions of a lot of those ships now. They should be able to use the consoles of their lower tier counterparts. That would also solve the problem and keep the c-store ships attractive.

what would make me come back to pvp would be a couple of things since i stopped pvping as the p2w consoles started hitting the c-store(1.5 yrs ago).make separate pvp gear sets with a unique stat to make pve sets useless there(as an extension of this have ship powers have a different balance chart from pve so if a pvper cries for balance it wont ruin the pvers fun and vice versa).unequip all non native uni-consoles from builds when entering a match(and lock those consoles from being reslotted until match end) as to play ships the way they were meant to be played.

Players less complaining about it and back in the pvp queues, because i don't like waiting for more than 5 mins to to play an instance.

And less one-shot on ground maybe.
