# 1 Next Reputation Chain? [Ideas]
12-18-2013, 09:52 AM
Anyone have ideas for the next reputation? I saw a Mirror Universe idea one somewhere around here awhile ago. I thought it'd be perfect.


Terran Empire Protection Agency

Backstory: The Terran Empire get someone or something or do something that makes them kinda dangerous (what a change) and Starfleet, the KDF and the RR team up to stop them.

This New Reputation System (Let's call it Season 8.5, why not) would include in its release:

+ New Featured Episode (Like "Sphere of Influence)

- Additionally, some mission reward ideas: A very rare weapon/console, a special Boff, and maybe even, for a limited time, a Mirror Universe Galaxy Class Crusader Cruiser*

+ New Mirror Universe STF Missions (and, possibly, an Elite STF version of the event fleet action)**

- At least 1 Space and 1 Ground, each with corresponding normal and elite variants

+ New Rep and Rewards:

Tier 1:

- Mk XII Science Console - Omnicore Combat Matrix***
- Mk XII Ground Set Personal Shield
- Store Unlock: Blue Quality Mirror Universe Doffs
- Costume Unlock: 2409 Mirror Universe Antares Uniform

Tier 2:

- Very Rare Ship Device - Trilithium EPS Afterburner****
- Mk XII Space Set Deflector Array
- Store Unlock: Mk XII Cryptonic (I don't know) Phaser Pistols
- Store Unlock: Mk XII Cryptonic Phaser Assault Firearms

Tier 3:

- Mk XII Ground Set Combat Armor
- Store Unlock: Mk XII Cryptonic Phaser Beam Arrays
- Store Unlock: Mk XII Cryptonic Phaser Dual Beam Banks
- Store Unlock: Mk XII Metaphasic Mine Launchers
- Store Unlock: Mk XII Metaphasic Torpedo Launchers

Tier 4:

- Mk XII Ground Set Weapon
- Mk XII Space Set Impulse Engines
- Store Unlock: Mk XII Cryptonic Phaser Cannons
- Store Unlock: Mk XII Cryptonic Phaser Turrets
- Store Unlock: Mk XII Cryptonic Phaser Rifles
- Store Unlock: Purple Quality Mirror Universe Doffs

Tier 5:

- Mk XII Space Weapon - Polaric Quantum Torpedo Launcher
- Mk XII Space Set Shield Array
- Store Unlock: Mk XII Cryptonic Phaser Dual Cannons
- Store Unlock: Mk XII Cryptonic Phaser Dual Heavy Cannons
- Costume Unlock: Mirror Universe Federation Ship Material (Fed only)
- Costume Unlock: Mirror Universe Klingon Ship Material (KDF only)
- Costume Unlock: Mirror Universe Romulan Ship Material (RR only)

Notes:

*Proposal Stat Ideas:

Hull: 40,000
Shield Modifier: 1
Weapons: 4/4
Crew: 1000
Boff Layout: Cmdr -- Lt Cmdr -- Lt -- Ens -- Lt
Consoles: 4/4/2
Turn Rate: 7
Inertia Rating: 25
Bonus Power: +10 Weapons, +5 Shields, +5 Engines


**Mission Reward Ideas Normal/Elite (Ground):

25/60 (40/95) Terran Empire Marks (+15 for optional objective completion)
480/960 (720/1440) Dilithium Ore (+50% for ground missions)
3/At least 5 Veteran Service Medals (a.k.a. Terran Empire "BNP")*****

***"The Terran Empire, being more militarily invested than the Prime Universe Federation, has developed an advanced computer processor dedicated to A.I.-assisted combat situations. While tactically focused, the matrix has been specifically designed to fit into the ship's scientific systems so as to not compromise firepower."

Proposed Stats:
+15% Energy Weapon Damage when auxiliary power is above 75
+11.2 Starship Targeting Systems
When receiving Energy Damage, 3% chance to apply "Emergency Attack Protocols" (max once per 3 minutes):

+5% All Damage for every enemy targeting you for 45 seconds

****"This Unique Device is configured to link externally with ship systems without burning out after a certain amount of usage. It pushes EPS systems into overdrive momentarily, though it often destabilizes the ship's structural integrity. The Terran Empire uses it often as a 'last ditch effort' as it proves to be a more elegant solution than 'ramming speed.'"

Proposed Stats:
(4 minute cooldown on use)
+50% Energy Weapon Attack Speed for 10 seconds
No Energy Weapon power drain for 10 seconds
-63 All Damage resistance for 12 seconds

*****My idea behind the service medals is that it functions both as the new "Commendation" for 20 hour rep projects, as well as the "BNP" with differing costs to match value:

"File Engagement Report on the Terran Empire" (20hr rep project) - 5 Service Medals

"Support Intelligence Briefings" (1hr rep project) - 20 Terran Empire Marks, 10,000 Expertise

"Present Veteran Status" (1000 dilithium project) - 15 Service Medals

"Return Service for Resources" (500 dilithium project) - 50 Terran Empire Marks

"Exchange Marks of Service for Medals" (Rewards 30 Service Medals) - 200 Terran Empire Marks

Undocumented Notes:

"Cryptonic Phasers:" These phasers are a darker, crimson-like red. Instead of the normal phaser proc, they have a 2.5% chance to not drain any weapon power for 15 seconds. They also come with an innate 2% increased critical hit chance, though they are allowed 1 less modifier.

"Metaphasic Torpedos and Mines:" These are silvery-white in appearance and have a 33% chance to lower an enemy's defense by 5% for 10 seconds (~90% photon damage, 8 second cooldown)

Costume unlocks: You get to wear Mirror Universe Uniforms from the 25th Century as well as use the mirror ship material on all* your ships (provided there isn't already one)

*"All" depending on how easy it is for poor Cryptic to make new mirror material models
More anything?
"MORE EVERYTHING!"

Ideas for the next rep chain:


NONE.

Say it with me now.

Enough with the damned GRIND FESTS. Nothing is worth this. Stop adding GRIND REP TIERS in place of ACTUAL GAMEPLAY CONTENT.

Grind is NOT content.

How about no to what you say? I am fine with getting more reputation, just because you don't want to have anymore reputation systems, doesn't mean that you'll get your wish.

At the very least make them optional (aka no more passive abilities for unlocking ranks, gear and cosmetics are fine). As it is it takes too much work for new players to catch up to established players having to do EVERY. SINGLE. REP.

They are already optional. You can do Level 50 content without ever touching the Reputation system.

Fleet gear is a great alternative. The passives should stay.

So? You can do 50 content in shuttles with white gear. Does that mean ships and gear are optional too?

Passives are a way of progressing character as much as leveling from 1 to 50 is. Anyone without them will be at a clear disadvantage to those who do. Those with fleet gear will still be worse than those with fleet gear and the the passives. Therefore, they're not optional and future rep should not have passives.

I like it. Provides some more incentive/rewards for PvP and'll teach those PvE grinders why passive bonuses in every single rep is a bad idea.
