Hopefully none!

My Tac toon was stood in the ESD shipyard when the server went down, ready for when the servers are back up and the highly anticipated Vesta is ready to go!

So no, only rarely is it truly free. Though you yourself may not put any of your own money into a transaction, so from you point of view it didn't cost you anything.

Big difference between insulting/complaining and constructive critisicm, I always welcome the latter, but find the first to be depressing and detrimental to the creative process

There are doomsayers at every season release. Best thing to do is play the new stuff and decide for yourself.

Just make sure not to play any of the new Tau Dewa stuff until you've played "Cutting the Cord", for continuity's sake.
Say NO to mandatory Arc!

I don't think it's insulting to say that Cryptic have lied to players before about content, that Cryptic also stealth-ed in changes without announcing them (E.g. the Doff grinder costs). I don't think it's insulting to say they very rarely give good customer service especially in replying to complaints that might be difficult for them to manage PR wise.

I don't think it's insulting to criticizing them for not fixing legacy bugs in the game that have been ticketed time and again only to see no action being taken. I don't think it's insulting to to say that it took them a whole week to fix gamebreaking bugs in both the end-game missions and the first mission in the game as well as a whole clutch in-between.

Today my whole group in an STF was disconnected and the mission automatically dropped and when I formed a new group and we killed Armek that the game bugged and spawned a whole group of Borg at the start of the match making it impossible to complete and get the loot bags.
I don't think it's that people are overly demanding or that the game under-valued it's that quite simple much of it is half-assed and only half-fixed.

I think players who have spent money and time on this game have every right to complain.

Yes.

Since you do not need them to level your fleet base, the price of purple duty officers should be high enough to make them 'very rare'.

At least with the old system I could change them into greens and then sell those greens or change into blues etc. and earn enough to buy needed white security department doffs from exchange. Now with the reassign dilithium price increased this won't be an option...
