How about making Lobi's account bound, and make 1 lobi worth say 1000 or 10,000 GPL? Keep the gold (pressed latinum) farming business alive?
I mean come on, you can buy the shuttles (woo, shuttles) on the exchange, and the other stuff isn't that essential. Boffs on ground aren't useful after the story content is finished, and do they even give any advantage in space?
*votes for "Put that stuff into the GPL store instead and finally give latinum (which is supposed to be the most valuable stuff in the Trek universe) some meaning over lobi crystals (which canon established as worthless junk anyway)*
This get my vote too. The whole Lobi Consortium with there crystals and strong enemy faction battle ships for sale has nothing to do with Star Trek.
Haven't you learned that Cryptic has a deep love affair with introducing more and more currencies and complexity? Remove Lobis? Never happen.
I haven't said "remove lobis". I said "give GPL some meaning". Latinum is supposed to be the most valuable commodity in the Trek universe after all, but all us players can get for it are limited time holo emitters. (I'm not counting the trophies as you can't place them on Romulan / Lockbox ships anyway).
