First let me say all in all i like most of the changes to the game. However, there is 2 items that i would like to see changed tho.
1. Featured Episodes - I think that they should not go into the mission sets but be separate as they are not normal missions but a special set of missions. Let me explain some why i think this.
First off, they were put in as a featured series not part of the quest series in the game, so i don't think they should be in the story quest series of the game but seperate that more people can play at a wider range of levels. I think they should be like the used to be have to be fed level 9 or something like that and same for the respective klingon level. I used to play them a lot when i was leveling a toon but i can't do that till lvl 45 or higher for some.
Second, There is a lot of missions like the undine series that you can't do to max lvl. i will be honest my last guy i made is a fed eng he has run assimlation and that is it out of that series because at that point i was max lvl and i wanted to run stfs for gear not missions that didn't give as good of gear as i can get running stfs. I am not asking the gear be upped on the missions but that you lower the lvl a bit for running them so you don't have to be max lvl when you run them.
My second item that i would like to see changed is crafting, to be very honest i loved crafting before dilithium came into the game and now i don't even look at it. Don't get me wrong i liek the dilithium system for the most part but i hate it in crafting at all. to me it makes crafting a waste of time. in the old system i used crafting to help my alts more than anything else but now i think it cost too much dilithium to bother with to be honest, it should either give a bigger discount on the dilithium cost or take less crafting mats.
To me i used the crafting system to get my gear in a different way in the old system(which besides crafting i don't want back) either i could work in getting emblems or marks or whatever, or i could working on getting crafting mats and make the stuff i wanted. But with the new system i have to spend time getting the mats and still have to farm dilithium as well. When i could spend a little bit more time and just get dilithium and buy it outright then spending time finding the crafting mats.
Having said all that i am not trying to gripe or complain i mean this as constructive critism and i hope that is the way it comes across, i don't have all the answers and can understand some of the issues but i thought i would voice my opinion here and hopefully get a response from a dev that they read my post, even if all it says is " thanks for your feedback"
Well keep up the good work i love the new starbase system and would like to see more things like that in the game.
