This is a cryptic post. The question is about a level cap increase, the answer is about a rank increase. That is not the same. The rank can be increased, a promotion, without increasing the level cap. The promotion would be the result, game reward, of a misssion, or a series of missions that give a (ingame) promotion, without XP.

The other thing, raising the level cap without raising the rank, is also possible, but doesn't make much sense. We would have level 50 vice admirals and level 55 vice admirals.

I am against both, cap increase and rank increase.

Against a cap increase. Raising the cap would mean more XP for your talents, so in the end you can have 9 points in everything. It will make the character a Mary Sue. More points makes it pointless. Moreover, if they keep raising the level cap, a constant revamp, rebalance of the talent system, skills, ship tiers and gear quality (mk XIII, XiV ...etc) is necessaray. Look at WoW each expansion there is a whole new talent system.

Against a rank increase. Well the whole rank system is flawwed. I see it as a cosmetic, a game thing. I want to play a character that flies a starship and do missions with it. I want to lead a small away team. Both of these task are in my view not things, that an admiral will do on a regular basis.

I want a level cap because I want to have a space away team.

But no more level cap increases from there, because I can't think of what rank is higher than an Admiral in Starfleet!

Lol a space away team. Crashing into planets, shooting the wrong things and exploding at the first sign of combat.

i'm also sceptical towards a rank increase to admiral...i rather have it completely redesigned with captain or commodore as max rank.

the level can be increased to 60 whatever, but it just makes no sense to see a million admirals on ESD or SFA.

i would even go as far as saying the rank should be tight to mission progression (PVE) and certain accolades...which are purely cosmetic.

Level 50 Tac Officer Rank: Commander to achieve captain title finish mission X
Go pro or go home

# 16 Raise The Level Cap!!!!

RAISE THE LEVEL CAP!!!!! Im tired of Vice admiral and Lt. General. Full admiral and General and allow us to pull ships out of mothballs to fly escort duty and a ship based DOff system (including assigned captain BOffs) to allow this game to full development. Just because a few people say "oh whine there are too many admirals not enough complaining Lt Commanders" doesnt mean the end game should be closed and nerfed to appease these IDIOTS. A game is about advancement, if you want to stagnate at ensign feel free, let the rest of us ascend to Admiral or event Fleet admiral (instead of 1 or 2 escort duty we could have 2 or 4 at that rank MUAHAHAHAHAH) RAISE it and let people who want no advancement not advance of their own accord!

I'm fine with more levels, as long as they lower the ranks players have.

Um, reading comprehension for the win...

The OP said raising the LEVEL cap would be cool. Raising the RANK cap wouldn't be - and I agree.

We should have Captain as the top RANK (with unlimited LEVEL advancement) for most players in STO, with only Fleet Leaders being Admiral RANK (the link in the OP does a nice job of explaining this).

As for 'no advancement', um, it's kinda forced on you......you play, you advance, regardless of what you want or do.
