I agree with all opinions. The reputation system is bad as is. But it can also be good.
The pro is that you dont need to be lucky and get that rare salvage you need.
The con is that it takes FAR TOO LONG 40 hours come on. I can do other things while waiting but I want new gear now not the next day and a half. If they was to reduce the time for projects and the cost of them most people will be happy, others not so much. I started playing the game from F2P so the most money I've spent is buying a key to unlock a box and to get it so my ship says NX not NCC. so I cant account for that side of things.
I just hope the devs are looking at the forums and re-evaluating the reputation system to better suite average players.
All I have to say is FAIL!!!!! Sorry you need to make the game fun to play. Ok maybe most like to play an asian farm game. I just don't get this move. Wait yes I do. Its all about money. Not the fans of Star Trek. I just feel like you just want to R *A*P*E* us all. I miss the old Star Trek Online. Episodes that where fun to play. And gear that was fun to obtain once you finish working hard with your fleet. This is a sad day. Man I even have to space the word I want to say thats messed up.
Very well said...this game should be called "STO: Farming the next frontier"...
I have to agree, there is really nothing for me before Tier 5 that I want/need. So I feel like all those months of STF are gone. And I think more and more people will be going for ISE or KAGE just to get the easy marks and ignore the others.
Also the passive's and not being allowed to respect, or starting the wrong project is a crock. Maybe do a penalty for choosing the wrong project. Or maybe a project to change the trait. It should not be permanent.
