I don't really have a need for consumables and the holoemitters don't last long eough to justify the cost. 15 minutes for the holoemitters needs to be changed to something more fun. Try 24 hours, then I'll have an interest. DOff missions are more of a sink for Latinum and rarely ever provide yields that make those DOff missions worth it.

This comment comes off as "We are happy with the way GPL currently exists, and have no plans to do anything for the foreseeable future."

It's a shame really, since GPL could certainly be used to add ALOT of new cosmetic items to the game. And if we had proper "Customizable Player Interiors", there would be a ton of new revenue from cosmetic upgrades for your ships. Add to that, instead of adding new ships all the time, Cryptic could add new "parts" that can be used for multiple ships. New nacelles, new saucer designs, new hull designs etc.

Why not throw in some of these things into the game, instead of constantly milking us for Zen on Master Keys to open the 0.01% chance boxes?

What will happen with the fleet project for the holiday commodities? Will it transfer to Dilith if we already have some done?

You're really reading into my post too much. This post was a direct reply to a post that asked, "What are we supposed to do with it all?". GPL is used for cosmetic, vanity items -- we've added several new items that can be purchased with it since the launch of Season 7, and we'll continue considering more options in the future.

Hold on to them if you'd like Nothing has been decided at this time.

More info soon, but as Borticus stated before the event started, you won't just be stuck. Although, you can continue to get the holiday commodities until the end of the month, as well as from the exchange. Info: http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=798511

I skimmed through it but they did do a lot of work on it and theres a bunch of new stuff you can spend GPL on. Usually I'd complain about something complaint worthy but theres nothing to complain about with it this time LOL

Edit: One thing I bought a lot of I like is the holoprojections for ground

I am glad to see that Cryptic is open to adding more stuff to the GPL store. I wish I had more of an idea of what I would like to see in there. An expansion on the Dabo system and high stakes Dabo would be nice and would definitely add to the entertainment value of it. Maybe something like a high rollers room on Drozana or DS9 for those who manage to rack up 1,000,000 in GPL to unlock a high stakes Dabo. Then using that as a reward system to rent out or buy an office on the Promenade in one of the many emply places. An increase of the time the Holoemitters would really make them more worth while. 15 minutes of time in space really wasn't worth it. Considering the timer only applies in space. Perhaps 5 hours would be more of a fair compromise to the cost of these items.

With GPL being more Ferengi oriented. More items that you would expect a Ferengi to sell would be nice. Whether it be special weapons or cross-faction weapons, more trophies and better ones than the disappointing Latinum Pile. Even if it's just swords for the walls or other novelty items like special holodeck missions. It would be nice to have something to make me want to earn more GPL. We have time gated content now. This could possibly be adapted to add a special holodeck program for the fleet starbase as a different form of project that doesn't require DL or commodities. A western shoot out, an Academy training simulation, or something.
