Well I just got all my characters through Omega rep and moved onto new romulus. It is mind numbingly boring. There is absolutely no chalenge or joy in any new romulus content beyond the first few play throughs.

The story and explorative elements are nice, but absolutely fleeting. If cryptic doesn't introduce an expanded elite STF collection to all parts of the reputation system they are going to lose a lot of players and potential extra toons. Several people from my fleet have already left the game for this reason.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.

Yeah just do the epohh hunting and the doff assignments.. Once you get this rolling you have plenty of rom marks basically by doing nothing. Also the daily patrol which gives 60 rom marks is worthwile doing too...Id skip the rest =)

Challenge is one of the main reasons people play games at all. There may be other reasons of course like collecting, socializing, playing a story.
You can achieve everything in the game just by doing things repeatedly.
But without challenge any achievement does not feel very valuable.

Except the "challenge" with the reputation system as it stands now is not becoming overwhelmed with boredom doing it.

Repetition does not equate to challenge.

Its more like I would like something similar to ISE/CE/SB24 for other reputations.

I want something that I can grind, and try to optimize my DPS for, trying to outplay my Team mates. Nothing wrong with doing Sector Patrol + Tholian RA every day for the Marks.

I can apparently make Eppohs have sex for some Rom Marks but I don't know how to do that, or its painfully slow to start up (Can only get 2 Tags per day?)


I don't like the Reputation systems as they're there just to annoy the players (brb gotta get some Major Regenerators...)

I am terrible at this game. I have 6 Lv 50 accounts.

Tholian STFs for marks would be great. Doing them and learning the strengths and weaknesses of both your ships and Tholian ships, and then obtaining Tholian gear to better fight them by the time at which you've acquired your set(s).

It makes sense, and is far preferable to All Nukara All The Time for space gear that will be used in majorly buggy Red Alerts once in a while, or ground gear that will be used for.. what?

Making some of the existing stfs into elites would certainly help the process, I like it.

Overall these rep things only good stuff really comes from it is the passives... gear is stuff you'd epohh out for a few mains and then maybe get a few alts the passives and then be done with it...

Rep systems are turning out to be crap.
