So because I haven't spent 120 million EC on purple consoles to fill the junk science slots on my ship, I am now barred from elite STFs which I already demolish with flying colours.

Yep, I too support your dumb idea.

Couldn't have summed it up better myself.

But if the OP feels this strongly about it, then feel free to send some purple mk xii consoles my way so I am uh...better prepared for ESTF's in the future

Absolutely not. This is one of the few things Cryptic could do to get me to leave. As others have said, you can do ESTFs in white MK X gear. It's all about your own skill and understanding the strategy of each map. Gear score is for the people who don't know any better and think that mad leet purpz make you teh awesomez. Or whatever junk they say that makes no sense.

Space, because as long as we're enforcing silly elitist crock we might as well go full crazy about it.

You can put common-quality gear on a ship and still do 6k DPS. It's all about playstyle: the abilities you use, how you use them, positioning, and so on.

Look, I've spent hundreds of millions of EC on gear, for my own amusement. That doesn't make me or anyone else a good player. I certainly wouldn't want something like Gearscore in STO.

Hmm...How can I put this mildly...

Does NO work?

Item level is really just a measure of luck and number of nights you spend playing a game while you should be sleeping. Skill level is completely unrelated.

but space maco could make you behave like Han Solo.

Oh and is that Bruce Willis in GI Joe 2 or Bruce Willis in Expendables 2?

I'd be interested in a version of it that uses Cryptic Math to calculate the score itself.

Just imagine it. Biofunction monitors would give you a bigger score than the field emitter! Stuff like that!
