Dude, you're playing ST:O, home of the copypasta, where truly "everything old IS new".

I mean, you expect them to make something NEW when they can regurgitate existing assets ad infinitum ad absurdum a la the Starbases stuff? Pleeeeeease......

# 104 Tholian rep system blog5
04-14-2013, 06:16 PM
Another rep system on the way fair enough I guess.

But one thing caught my eye where it says about having to do projects to register existing gear on which we will receive 50 marks for each bit and get our gear back.

I have a full set of MK XII tholian gear which I paid to upgrade with lobi.

Does this mean I will not be able to use this gear which I earned and paid for until its registered via the reputation system.

As it is XII and presumably tier 3/4/5 to get in the system will I have to grind through the system for a time until I can get to do the projects to register it?

And will it be the same for the jem hadar XII set when you introduce a dominion rep system.
Or maybe the Lobi consoles for the ferengi or time ships when they get rep systems.

If so then sales of lobi items have just got less enticing in my book at least.

Therefore they lose their value and by extension, the time you spent earning them was devalued entirely. However, today Dilithium earned at level 1 is still usable and as valuable at level 50 as it was at level 1. That was the point of the currency changes. To avoid devaluing your time. Which is a good thing.

(Similarly, Omega marks earned at level 44 remain usable and are as valuable at level 50 as they where at level 44. This will also remain the case if we ever see a level increase alongside an additional tier added to the Omega store.)
Yes, I remember my disappointment when I realized that grinding exploration in Delta Volanis for exploration marks was futile. By the time I'd acquired enough marks to buy the gear I wanted, I'd out leveled it. Dil is much better than level bound currencies.
HAIL HYDRA!

No, you will be able to use the gear. What this means is that you get free marks for having purchased the lobi gear upgrade. The option to use lobi to purchase the upgrade is going away with this patch as well.

It's a special project, so most likely it'll appear if you have the gear in your inventory like how the BNP project appears.
