Things are certainly looking up, but that doesn't excuse past mistakes.
lol but i have only been playing sto since march of this year but to me he says one thing and does another , and with all the dilithium sinks lately i dont trust him nowdays and take everything with a pinch of salt . dont get me wrong i love sto but do not trust cryptic as much as i used to
Well, it's an alternative to leveling, which makes it an alternative for Cryptic.
Then like Cryptic, you also do not get the point.
It'd be an alternative to leveling if we had access to it below level 50. At level 50, there is no more leveling. If there is no leveling and only the rep system once you hit 50, then it makes more sense to say that the rep system is an alternaitve to nothing.
