GRINDING IS NOT FUN

GRINDING IS REALLY NOT FUN

I PLAY THIS GAME TO HAVE FUN

What's the point of all this "improvement" if by simply setting all the values for gear way too high only the 24/7 players will ever get it?

I'm a casual player, and it seems like they want to make sure I will not enjoy the endgame grind.

Yet another lifetime subscriber who is starting to regret that decision.
You are the one they hope spends 1000 dollars a year in the C-store. I said it before ill say it again, the C-store will ruin this game F2P or not. Almost Everything can be had with the use of real world money. Cryptic is hiding it by calling it their so called "time based currency". but its jsut a lame cover for trying to get everyone to spend money in the C-store.

Damn shame too, this game could have been the game to lift the "Star Trek" curse on video games.

The curse shall lift once games of the JJ universe begins.

Then a new era shall emerge!

50 of each is way too much for just shaving a second off your time.
They should make it do something else too like add plasma resistance, nanite resistance, and make it auto remodulate as you fire your weapon, so you don't have to stop to do it.

Then it would seem more worth of the 50 of each.

IMHO we should get use to it. ON Holodeck last night in ONE AREA alone there were 6 to 8 of scrambeling to get the scraps left behind from one another for mats needed. With the grind fest in place I hate to see where this is going.

Nothing wrong with grinding (in and of itself) ... IF there is an adequate supply of materials.

This is a pretty ridiculous change if you ask me. 50 is absurd. 10 was probably a bit cheap, but it shouldn't be more than 20, maybe 25 at most for the fractal remodulator. It only shaves 1s off, it isn't that great.

It took me a full 2 hours to get the 10 of each I needed for one. That's 10 hours of grinding at that rate, which on Holodeck is probably going to happen across 10 days since the event won't last 2 hours.

And of course if you want one for each of your BOFFs, you're looking at 50 hours of grinding, which translates to 50 days! And that is not on your schedule either, it is on the game's event schedule. It took me significantly less time than that to level up to VA on Tribble, and that was running with a T2 escort all the way to RA.

At some point in time some common sense needs to take over. I agree this is nuts !

(Note to Cryptic: Look folks we're not trying to keep "stuff" stired up. Seriously we're not. But good grief please reevaluate some of this. We're not looking for a cake walk. BUT if you think driving everyone to the "C" store foe EVERYTHING we need just short of a "pay toilet" (and some Game Companies that are based in China or Japan do exactly that ... ) you are sadly mistaken if you think that all of us are going to "buy into that" (No pun intended).

Free to Play ??? I find that such a contradiction.

Charge for some items if you must ... but where this is headed is simply not cool ... IMHO.

Look .... I get it. The game is going free to play. That is not going to change. But pay to win ? Somehow I just don't see that as the right thing to do.
