I suppose if it's not Bind On Pick-Up, that might make it a little more useful (mail it to your KDF toon?).

(Also, still hoping we can get an RSS feed for these Path to F2P posts.)
To add to this some of us still have one from the 1 year anniversary on each of our VAs these things are just gonna be sitting around in storage until the level cap gets increased whenever that's coming.

As a bonus, within the three weeks following when the F2P build is live, we'll be giving out awards to your character on Holodeck based on what you accomplished on Tribble. If you get a Federation character from start to level 11, we'll give you a free 8 hour XP boost item. If you get to level 31, we'll give you a reasonably large chunk of dilithium (exactly how much depends a bit on how the economy tunes up in testing, but this will be a meaningful award). And if you get a character to level 51, we'll give you a bonus ship slot and a unique title that only the most elite Tribblers will have. This award only applies to Federation characters that freshly started on Tribble. It does not apply to characters that transfer in once we open up character transfer.
I am assuming that the testing rewards are account-wide? If not, can they be transferred to an alt? I'd rather give them to a Klingon toon, particularly the XP boost. At any rate, this gives me a bit more of an incentive to test my *** off.

Ok, I think its just said in a confusing way but I want to be sure, do we have to wait to start leveling the character after F2P goes live or can we start now if we would like the rewards? The way it was worded it seems like we have to wait till its live first or we wont get the bonuses for getting the characters to 11, 31 and 51.

Ohhh, interesting rewards for leveling a toon!

The only negative I have to say about this is that most people will be doing whatever is fastest to level on. And that means, NOT the Duty Officer System I suspect. I believe Heretic wanted feedback on that aspect of the system.

This starts on TRIBBLE as of now. They want as many people playing the F2P Test Server as possible for load testing, bug reporting and feedback.

What i can't understand is they have a

Goal: Get people to test NEW content and systems


Implementation: Reward people for avoiding new systems and level gate many of them


Anybody else

But likely people who are going to power level will still hit the duty officer system to make it go that much faster and once people max out a toon some will be curious enough about the new STFs to give them a go. These rewards don't necessarily rule out further rewards for progress in the DOff system and STFs. They may still be yet to be announced. I'm too lazy to dig up the reference but it seems like Heretic did mention that we would get rewards for testing the DOff system based on how many commendation categories we ranked up and how far we ranked them.
