I didnt start pvpíng until i reached VA1 so i hadent even been to K7 before a diplomatic mission brought me there. I was not a happy camper when i found out that the marks of honor pvp dailys was unavailble.
I'm also in the same boat with many of you. If this is what Cryptic had intended, then I think some mention of this should have been made prominently. I have 4 VA's and as of the season 2 release I hadn't had time to get the gear for all of them as I mistakenly thought I had time to do.
I'm also shocked at how poor the quality of the Mk XI gear is. In many cases, its like a step down from the Mk X gear.
I hope that this situation gets addressed by Cryptic in some manner. I have high hopes for STO, and I want to keep enjoying it, but it's things like this that wear down my resolve to stay subscribed.
maybe one of those three poeple (that are still working on sto and are not removed to work on a new cryptic rip off game) could tell if we can spend our honor marks now or if there will be honor marks availible for va1 (with the next content joke update)?
i would like to have marks of honor again...and the thing is, 4 different posts were already made on this and no reply...when i asked cryptic, via ticket, they stated that they would concider it if enough people agree with it on the forums...but so far i see nothing
Personally I think they did it on purpose to remove the +50% crit severity weapons and the cap3 shields and such, notice how the mark XI weapons have far worse stats than the mk x mark of honour gear with only a marginal increase in dps to compensate.
Do not see them adding any new PVP gear any time soon. They got to much work. It will become out dated fast enough. Never was a fan of two sets gear it just double the work for the player and the programmer. Twice the grind half the fun and this is a game.
I'd also like to get a new possibility to gain Marks of Honor. What about having the new Daily PvP mission to select if you either want Emblems or Marks of Honor. This way we would have the old PvP style mission rewards back.
