I second that, I liked the idea of PvP territory control since the day I saw the idea. I also like the idea of PvP wherever (as oppose to the challenge player we have now) that would breath new life into PvP, with certain limitations of course after all we can't have a VA in a P2W ship slaughtering the poor LTs and there really should be a simple opt in/out system

I'd have to agree that even if I might not play Poker or even Tri-dimensional chess (Another one that might be cool) I'd definitely partake in PVP Territority Control (Fleet Base Wars if you really have to!) Shuttle racing.
You think that your beta test was bad?

I have always wanted shuttle racing as there is not much use for the shuttles at the moment apart from at least two missions and the Vault.

Tridimensional chess and Poker would be good way to earn more GPL as you can challenge players to matches which could make ds9 and maybe the starbases more interesting rather than just playing dabo.

I burnt out back when I was grinding for XII honor guard on a KDF char. Briefly played the nukara event before being bored of that.

Most of my time (before GW2 came out) was pretty much just SITTING there talking to people in channels...


I feel the grind is dilithium. It's needed for EVERYTHING, reliably gotten in large amounts from few areas which are all now (personally) boring, and the prices are so high I can't "work on saving dilithium for that carrier pet(for example)" while also "Getting some c-store points to get another costume slot as well as supporting the fleet projects/special appearance projects". I have to basically pick one until it's done, then pick another.

That is how I feel anyway. STO has turned into a dilithium grind, and it's sad because I don't mind the gameplay, graphics, I love star trek and would love to play it more/RP my characters more... but I don't wanna just SIT in a game in sector space/a station for hours going "Meh... what to do..."

If I could make a suggestion for what to do that has helped me a lot with this game; Tell yourself you don't NEED any of it. It's a free to play game. Treat it as such and unlock things that you want whenever you get around to affording them. It doesn't help with the lack of content, but it does at least change the game from a 2nd job back to... well, a game. At least for me.

And there will be new stuff to do in the next expansion, see if you like it.

The problem is, the only things left to do is grab lower level characters through the content I've done many times to max level, and then park them there to do nothing.

The new stuff frankly doesn't entice me to come back. "Here, ANOTHER thing to have to put dilithium in. Oh, and you'll need even more for the STF outfits that you like." If say, the "rep" system was account wide (or faction wide for KDf and fedside) I might be more interested. But it looks like both are character bound. I don't wanna do a grind for every character to get the STF armor costumes I like.

The STF's are interesting yeah, but after grinding my XII honor guard, I literally just don't wanna load them up. My level 50 characters have nothing to do that doesn't feel like just going through the motions for some dilithium *repeat on all level 50 chars*.

I'm just surprised that there are foundry missions designed to exploit the 'do the foundry daily' thing.

The very idea of dailies rubs me the wrong way.
Just change them to weeklies and give 7x the usual daily reward. Done.

And a bit of non-trolling advice:
If you're playing more than 2 hours a day, go outside or something instead of whining about lack of content. Seriously just do something else offline, you'll be better off for it. There are so many games (and variety of games) available out there that even if you're allergic to the sun you can never really run out of new games to play and stories to experience.

Of course if you don't care about story....*shrug*

the reputation system is ok(not great, not horrible), me liking romi stuff(the ground weapons mostly) is making me want to use the rep. system(atleast the romi side)

STF's, i got bored of them, im ignoring the omega side of the rep. system.

I agree with the original post for the most part. This game needs more things thats not grinding....

Again i agree with the OP for the most part.

But the rep. system in optional....you can still have fun in game with out it(foundary for example)

I hope STO gets more into story and exploration(and pvp of course)

Again everything is optional...i spend most my time on the foundary...
