My one comment on the Reputation System is that I would like to see the range of items available in the Rep store (keep they ability ability to buy things greyed out of course; but let me see what will be available in there - including the costs - so I have some idea what I'm working toward. I don't think it's a good idea to start a player off blind in that area as it were.

Most players will want to know what they'll be able to get for all the Marks, Doffs, Comodities and Dilithium they're contributing - and they'll want stats and not just a few green lines in a vague Tier X unlock description. YOU need to give them something to make them want to use this Rep system - and more info on the gear they'll be working toward.

The good: no more 300+ runs to see the first piece of Proto tec. Thats REALY good.
I have enough proto tecs on my main to outfit a fleet but I have had no inclination at all to run those again on anyone else.

The bad well its more Doff grinding. The Dil drain from the rep system is relatively minor with how long the parts take. Noticeable, but not a "lets grind tac SB levels by requisitioning ships" Ugh...

My main complaint is those missions take ages, and I ran one elite and one normal and was done for the day, tomorrow, and some of the next day. So Wooo excitement.

Looking forward to the special weapons though, always wanted a cutting beam.

Does the Mk XII Borg Prosthetic Arm Weaponry have the same look as the currently available Borg Prosthetic Arms or will they actually replace the arm to look like a Borg Arm?

Tell me, Leviathan, how many [Borg] weapons do you have? How many set pieces? I've got almost none of the sets (not for lack of drops, it's just that MACO/Omega Force never really appealed to me). I have all the weapons I want already (hell, I even have a few Mk XII weapons. Not straight Mk XII, but good enough that I can work with it).
You really cant see it as progress being reset on STF gear? Honestly?

You have none of the sets..... thats why.

I have the Mk XII MACO Armor and Rifle and the Mk XII MACO Shield and Deflector. I need one piece for both the ground and space sets... if I dont get either of them before Season 7 goes live, I'll probably have to wait several more months to get the last pieces. And on top of that, not only will have probably have to spend some sort of credits, but I'll have to spend dilithium.

Its a complete kick in the face to anyone who has a partial set (whether its Mk XI or Mk XII),

You will stop being positive about that reputation system when you realize that you have to grind BOTH fleet projects and reputation projects. And the doffs for both types will be a lot more expensive. And that in order to buy two different mk XII shields (say, Reman and MACO) you have to grind to tier 5 TWICE, once for Omega and once for Romulan...

To be honest ...

... the dilithium store prices are very high. Having the same prices at the stf stores is ... well ... (have no proper words for that)

I can understand, that dilithium and other currencys need a sink to funktion properly but dilithium and doffs have more "sink functionalities" than abilitys to earn. At the moment it isn't fun anymore to grind all that stuff.

I am fine with the dilithium in the projects themselves, but if you are doing these projects and using the system instead of buing them immediately the items should be free, without additional dilithium.


btw: Is it working as intendet that the contribution (hypos) are drawn form the device slots of the Charakter first?

Make the reputation system account-wide.

All these new per-character things severely punish players with multiple characters who prefer to do other things in the game than grinding the same progression over and over again. (And for things like PVP it is really helping the enjoyment of the game to be able to select from multiple different characters without having to go through the same week-long preparation stages on each of them.)

No, Never, This is ... unlogical ...

You doesn't need so much stuff for this Projects and Cryptic want to get use more diffrent Content. When some person have more Chars, they can do this Reputation step by step.

First Char getr Romulan to T5
Second Char get Omega to T5

NO ACCOUNT-WIDE REPUTATION-SYSTEM

You know, there is one thing that could be done to make A LOT of people less unhappy about this.

How about giving some reputation tiers to those of us old timers who have the different MACO accolades, like UFP Medal of Honor, the Silver Star, etc...this way we feel like the time we've already put in is really worth something?

I don't think this is an unreasonable request, and I'm not asking to start at Tier 5. But I know it would make me feel like Cryptic really does value the time I spend with their game.
