Summons is in the mail, Cryptic. You have violated my civil rights by not allowing me preference of phaser colors on intellectual property I do not own, only pay a monthly fee to use within its intended parameters as clearly stated in the TOS. Is this the Federation or communism?
I think its sad that the powerhues are gone. Ship customization is a big selling point for this game, and picking the color of your weapons is just cool. I think a lot of it had to do with people complaining about some super-powered purple phaser blasting their ship, and trying to blame the color of the opponent's weapons instead of their own ability or the tactical situation. Either that, or the players rushing to the end game want everyone else to know how big a percentage of their life they have devoted to this game since it came out, Or it even could be PvPers complaining that they can't figure out what types of weapons their enemies are using, and thus find themselves unable to easily tailor their ship to their opponents. My bottom line on the issue is that I believe I picked a powerhue that, as far as I know, is unavailable through the actual weapons of the game, and I want my weapons to be my color.
