True, but he did design the DOFF system which is quite well loved by most players. I'd give him a tie breaker opportunity.

Well, the Rep system seems a little fun... I reserve full judgement until I see the Tech conversion rate, though. If this ends up with a Diminishing Returns BS put on it like the Marks/Badges/Emblems to Di conversion, desks will be flipped.

But, at least it won't take excessive amounts of luck to get Mk XII STF stuff. It also means I can grind the STFs I like (Infected in all forms except Ground Elite, Cure Space and KA Ground Normals) for the set pieces that WOULD come from the parts I don't like (Cure Ground and KA Space - Hell on Ground and annoying on Space, respectively).

It really is quite great except for the fact that it resets people's progress and doesn't recognize that progress at all.

And as a trend in Cryptic planning, it's part of a serious problem they have. Whenever they reheat leftovers, they take your old plate away.

It's like saying, "Man. I have the best wife in the world. Except for all those times when I woke up with waving a knife in front of my face. What was that about? Oh, well. It's in the past."

I'm a little concerned that I have to start from square one after thousands of STFs. The conversion should just liquidate our EDC/salvage into dilithium and then give us marks based on the number of STFs we have run (they have the data). If that skews the progression - just make it longer to get from tier 4 to 5. Don't ignore all the work we did...

It's not a hard reset; if you've already got everything, you're in it for the powers that you didn't have before. If you don't have anything; yes, it might take longer, but it also won't be nearly as hard. This is probably the most positive thing to come out of Season 7.

That makes no sense in the context of replying to my post. Explain exactly what you mean by "progress" in this instance. You're acting like this will delete everything STF-related from every character in the game and revert all the accolades like they never happened. That's not what's going on.

Tell me, Leviathan, how many [Borg] weapons do you have? How many set pieces? I've got almost none of the sets (not for lack of drops, it's just that MACO/Omega Force never really appealed to me). I have all the weapons I want already (hell, I even have a few Mk XII weapons. Not straight Mk XII, but good enough that I can work with it).

Hey Cryptic-Guys,

I love this new Reputation System. It's very Nice. But there are Some Points to make it better:

1. please unlock the Elite-STF only when a Charakter the Task Force Omega-Fraction has leveld at T3.

Why? So must all Newbies play first Time the normal STF's and and can't run into the Elite-STF's and make senssless Thinks. To often they come with unequiped Ships to Elite-STF make no dmg and doesn't work as team. so they must lern the STF bevor they can come to ELite STF.

2. Please make it harder to come on T5 and so on.

It is very confusing. The Fleet-Starbase need so much Doff's an Dillithium. Why we need only 9 or 17 Romulan/Omega-Marks??? I've Played some Romulan-Mission and have now more then 400 Romulan Marks Its very strange. Make shorter Projekts, and a little bit more consumalbe Thinks and more XP for T5 and lower XP for one Project

3. Don't begin again with 100 Payment. We are coming back to the time before S5 with all this Badges. We have now Credits, Dilithium, Fleetmarks, Fleetcredits, Romulan-Marks, Omega-Marks, Elite-OMega-Marks. This is to much. Only one OMega-Mark, and no Eilte-Omega-Marks. It is very confusing for new player.

4. with this neu passive abilities, you kill the Balancing again. Eskorts can make more DMG, and can tank more. And for use Cruiser it is to hard to tank this. Now it iks hard to tank a good Escort, beacause they make more dmg, then I can regenrate. There must be more Ship-specifical-abilyties.


Thats my Feedback. I hope the rest is agree with me.

sry for my bad english, I would right it in german in the german Forum, but there is no Game master to read this and no Feedback Thread ( pls fix this

I find some of the passive choices in the reputation system look quiete powerful.... in example theres one that has a 20% chance on a knockback on a crit or another one that has a 50% chance on a shield heal on taking a crit.. both of those look like they could make a major difference in ground pvp. Since it would be really bad having to reroll a toon because of taking the wrong choices here...

Question: Will there be a way to respec/retrait/undo our choices for passives in the new reputation system ?

Especially the 20% of a knockback on crits looks quiete scary for pvp in a game were we can easily reach 28% crit chance (before weapon modifiers and consumables!) (gambler,lucky,strike team,optics,omega armor,romulan tier1 passive).. im sort of wondering how much push power a full team could achieve setting up for that.. leading to the next question:

Question2: Does that 20% knockback on crit from romulan tier3 apply a immunity on the victim?

Since some charactercreation trait choices get more and more useless now compared to others.. i.e. why pick a crit trait if you can get to 25% crit easily without it when theres more powerful character creation options that you can't get any other way (i.e. like covert.. which still provides perfect cloak, the most OP trait ever btw!)

Question3: Are there any plans add a general retrait option anytime soon?
