PROBLEM:

I hit Tier one in both rep system this morning and while I wasn't planning on getting anything til I can get MK XII, I did notice that there is no way to preview the items in the store until after you do the unlock project. (and maybe not even then, I have no way to know)

I am pretty fond so far of season 7 changes (unlike a lot of people) but it seems crazy that I would spend a grip of marks to unlock the ability to buy an item if I have no way to preview it's statistics.

SOLUTION: Very simple. Put a "details" button on each store unlock that will preview the statistics of every item you would be able to buy.

ON ANOTHER NOTE:

PROBLEM:

While working on gaining Tier One Rep unlock, I had the "upgrade" available that turns five neural processors into 1000 Dilithium. "Pretty cool," I thoughy and ran the project once, then started another one. Having saved up a grip of Omega Marks already, I took a break from STF while letting the timers cycle. Since it seems Romulan Marks are awarded in significantly smaller amount per event I concentrated on those, as well as Fleet Actions, since I will need to earn those ECs for Weather Control Systems etc. for the rep projects.

2 AM This Morning and I still had an hour to wait to unlock Tier One. Extremely excited about the new passives I would be getting I set an alarm for 3 AM. Woke up and got ready to choose a passive and ... lo and behold ... I have to run an UPGRADE PROJECT to unlock the rep tier, only I can't because I have an unfinished processor to diltih project in the way. When I loaded the dilith project, no warning was given that it would impede my progress.

SOLUTION:

Every player in the game should be sent a quick in game mail, or see a pop up they must click on, explaining that the dilithium project and the tier unlocks are BOTH done in the ONE upgrade slot available.

Other than these issues and the fact that for some reason completion of an Elite STF give 60 Marks base and the average seems to be less than half that for the Romulan Missions, I truly do like Season Seven, even though for those who started STFs before the rollout it may be a pain to seemingly start over.

P.S. (Still trying to figure out why Starfleet and the Empire are asking captains to give supplies from pocket to help these causes, but that's just a whole different topic and clearly just a coin sink, which is understandable.)

He might be talking about the reputation store. It would be nice if you could access the reputation store and just have all the locked items show the details of them, but the purchase button is not accessible when you click on them.

Agreed OP. Its downright ridiculous to make us chase a carrot and we dont even know how big it is. I want to know if Im going to settle for Romulan gear, or play STFs for that gear. It matters because we are burning up time, expertise, and ECs and cant see how much lower Romulan gear is compaired to the Maco rep stuff at mk XII

My store is still grayed out, even though I'm working on Tier 2 and completed the upgrade project.

yeah really would like to see if they changed the really unimposant (bad) stats of Reman set MK XII..

i would also buy some romulan weapons, but i HAVE to see the stats. even if they only add it to STOwiki.

The other problem I see. Is why are the Store unlocks in the rep chains and not in the upgrade chain.. Why would I waste time on unlocking Store items when I haven't it T5 yet. They don't do that with the Fleet System.

If you were allowed to see stats now instead of after doing all the work needed to obtain the gear, you might just decide not to bother thereby giving you nothing to do and perhaps not playing at all. They can't make money if you're not playing and tempted to buy stuff.

Or maybe they just didn't feel like doing the work for us to be able to see. Status quo for them, in other words.

same here, very confusing - when does the store actually become available to click on?

did we trigger a bug ? we can't work on the lower tier projects or something?

received more rewards, and it's still greyed out...

Your store will unlock when you choose non set weapons, consumables, Borg doffs'. They are projects not upgrades. It's annoying though you spend loads on actually getting the option to buy something, but surprise surprise your greeted with a price tag of 10k or more dil.....I've only unlocked about 5 items, MKXII/MKXIII prosthetics, Borg doffs, consumables and MKXIII rifles.

It took awhile but I finally reached tier 5,just a warning the price tags go up considerably more at that point. But you guys proberly knew that.
Hope I could be of assistance
