Well, as far as how much lack of access they can get away with... I'm Cdr 3 right now, and stopped doing missions because I'm aggravated that I'm still in a LtC ship. I'm still messing with Doff stuff, but there's going to be alot of things which won't be adequately tested if this isn't fixed quickly. then, the snowball effect... things won't get adequately tested, then things which weren't adequately tested will go live, then people just checking out STO now that it's F2P see that it's a bug ridden mess, and Cryptic loses potential customers...

Apparently this is common now, I've seen higher level players STILL in Mirandas and angry all the way. This is such a silly change thats only going to upset people.

Alot of people were upset enough it took getting to Lt Cmdr to get a new ship, now unless you grind you cant get a new ship till near the end game? lol no thanks, This has to change.

I think someone at Cryptic just goofed and didn't pay attention to what the tier costs were pegged at. When I promoted at LT COM I got 70,000 dilithium. I also picked up a few bits of dilitium doing the lore quests at SFA. I think where the goof occurred is that Quinn only coughs up 80,000 dilithium when you make COM but the ship store Tier 3 ships cost 100,000.

So either reprice the ships, or have Quinn kick up some extra benjamins. (Sisko's?)

Either way, needs to happen Monday or people are gonna quit p-laying until it gets sorted out. Tier 2 ships can only take you so far.

This is especially annoying since they're taunting us with all these "unique" and "unattainable anywhere else" special rewards for testing. If they want us to spend weeks leveling up a toon from zero in order to get the playtesting done, then they need to make it easy, or at the very least tolerable. I was NEVER held back by poverty and inability to afford level appropriate gear on any of my other captains when I started this game. I definitely won't be testing much longer if this is what I have to look forward to. And if this is what live is going to be like, I won't be playing there either.

And for people already ranking up characters; they not only need to fix this and put in more sources, and bigger rank up amounts of DL, but they also need to give a one-time DL bonus to ALL toons on the system that are above LT1, to make up for the complete lack of dilithium up to whatever rank they're at now.
