I was doing the Klingon scouting force fleet action earlier, and noticed that there was an admiral in my instance. At the end of the fight, he got 8000 points, while 2nd place was only 2000. It seems broken to me that high level players can farm items in the low level fleet actions.
Since fleet actions are just a retooling of public quests from Warhammer Online, Cryptic should take a lesson and make higher level players earn fewer contribution points.
It would make sense to put a level cap on them, but Cryptic isn't exactly known as the MIT of MMO developers. They put out products that are "OK" and nothing more. This is an example why. I'm sure they'll fix it "eventually", but then again, this game was only supposed to have a shelf life of ~15 months. They released it early because they know it'll be dead once SW:TOR drops. And I mean dead. So they're doing all they can to milk it until then. So yeah, let's hope they do, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
