I am aware of the total hours it is taking people(and eventually myself included) to hit max level, but you are right CosmicOne that I am looking at this from a different perspective than most which shapes my view on leveling and the required time constraints differently.
FYI to all. My goal is to just get my nearly 20 toons(yes I know that is a lot--I had 16 during Winter event) to Captain, not so much Vice Admiral or Lt. General. I'll try that next year.
I haven't made a characcter in over a year so yeah.....
Anyone think it would be worth it to make a new character though for the new flag ships....though actually I doubt I'll have the time to even level a new kdf alt let alone do the mission....meh...leveling a new kdf isn't worth it. 1 is enough haha.
Way too many players are already abusing the game system to LEVEL RUSH like idiots amd ny making the XP lowered, it allows players to SEE MORE before hitting max cap. I for one wish XP was even SLOWER as I still get to max rank and havent done everything at least once.
But then again, not everyone plays mmorpgs "correctly" or should I say, "how the game was INTENDED to be played" - to each their own :/
Sorry. STO rocks! and I also think with the new f2p overhaul they wanted the content to last long, since level-rushing, farming/grinding gear/power junkies are in the "Vocal Minority"
Cater to the majority of RPers and RPG players who appreciate all of the game - not just those that rush through it all to get to end game the fastest.
