I'd like to add the DOFF system to this, the concept is good but having to wait up to 3 real life days? Is that a joke? They already have XP Requirements at ungodly amounts and are trying to lure us off the scent of that by saying they dont intend it to be a grind but a long term goal. Well guess what, perception is everything and most people see it as a GRIND. But I digress, at least if your going to keep XP so insanely high you could make White Common Doffs freely available as a EC Sink or something, and lower the timers on missions to MAX 1 day without nerfing the XP amounts.
What good is 9 dxp at 1-2d mission timer when you can goto the nebula and earn 10 dxp doing a short mission? I mean come on here, there is something wrong with this system. IF someone wants to sit on STO all day "Facebooking" the system waiting for 90m to 9h timers to count down, let them.
All this grinding is so not fun. Take a lesson from Sony Online Entertainment; Alienating a majority of your customers with bad changes leaves you with no money since most people will migrant away from the boring and over to something that is actually fun.
