# 1 Ideas for future reps
06-15-2014, 05:32 AM
Was just thinking how it'll be if we could get a rep for which ever side we choose. Like if we picked Federation (or rom allied with fed) or KDF (or rom allied with kdf), that we get a rep for that side. Fed rep would give stuff like Phaser weapons, and kdf would give Disruptor weps. As well as new consoles or set bonus's that give bonus to these type of weapons.

Maybe even a totally new kind of console that gives a bonus to a certain class of star ship, such as bonus dam or added hall for escorts, higher def or turn rate for cruisers, bonus aux for sci ships, bonus hanger pet dam for carriers, and extra time on bonus dam coming out of steath for raiders (like 2-3 extra secs, only 1 of this console aloud per ship). Now some of these already exists in game, but can add extra bonus's to these since they are only for 1 class of ship.

These are just some idea's, but it'll give each side and/or class of ship some more feeling for their roll.

Don't we have enough Rep Systems already? Gawd!

If anything, what we next need is a Cardassian Reputation System that combines Phasers with something (maybe Polaron?) along with a Cardassian Embassy, followed by a Cardassian Adventure zone and then onto a Cardassian Faction, but we're talking years away here.

If we could explore, chart new star systems, found colonies, form diplomatic ties with new alien species for trade and technology etc, and expand and change the map itself, that would make STO better.

I think by now, I'd only consider grinding a new rep for aesthetics only. There's enough gear, abilities and traits on offer from the others to have a choice in endgame setups and perform it quite comfortably.

And since every new rep seems to rip of some other science fiction franchise, I'd love one to have a full on Warhammer 40k look. Plenty of cool looks in that universe.

Technically, we already have cardassian Weapons.

PvP-Rep would be something...very....interesting
It's new? NERF IT TILL IT BLEEDS

the Spiral Wave Disruptors? I've used them before and they're good, but they're not available to anyone who doesn't own a Galor.

They would, but then only a small percentage of people would likely wish to acquire them. I don't think Cryptic would put that much effort in to a minor aspect of the game.

I think I'd rather see the man hours and money spent on new reps go into something else. Like a real exploration system. Did the first three reps on six toons. To say I am over the Rep system is an understatement.

Reputation should just be something that happens through natural gameplay. Don't get too hung up on them - they'll complete when they complete.

I do think we need to separate out Task Forces from Reputations. Reputations should be rewards for helping different races and giving you access to some of their stuff - New Romulus being a good example. Task Forces would be for fighting different enemies and giving you access to stuff that's better at killing them!

I'd quite like to see a Servitor Task Force added, but with a twist. Make it like the holdings we have at the moment where you have different tracks you complete. So you'd have one sub-track for fighting the Elachi, another for fighting the Solonae and so on.

I'd also like to see Ferengi, Cardassian and Deferi reputations added, alongside tracks for Federation and Klingon (that with the Romulan track are available depending on your faction).
