I'm going to guess that there will be a way to respec those choices - however, they are looking to increase the chance that somebody does something wrong and needs to "buy" that respec. They're increasing the amount of per toon items - the amount of investment in those per toon items either in grinding or in cold hard cash - thus, attempting to increase the chance that if somebody screws something up - they will be more likely to "buy" that respec.

Increase the per toon investment? Check.
Increase the per toon chance to screw up? Check.
Increase the likelihood of a player buying a respec? Check.

Heck, into that - add additional grinds requiring Dil as well as reduced Dil earnings - and it further increases the chances that a person will outright buy the Zen for a respec than they will attempt to grind it out...

Wow.

Please someone tell me this dumb ass system doesn't activate in pvp.

Please?

Stop it cryptic, you can't even fix what you have. Just stop.

DOFFs had the same effect to the old ways. The sky hasn't fallen yet.

Thats not to say it won't be a balance nightmare. But change usually is.

No, the sky hasn't fallen. We don't have hour-long matches because of BFI.

Doffs have made game balance worse.

Honestly I've become convinced the Doff system was why they put in these hilariously effective, and hilarious inneffective sci resists into the skill tree, as well as why some abilities are effectively 1/2 what they used to be.

Grav well and Tykens anyone?

CPB.. look how many doffs have come out for that one ability already to make it "good" again (and it still blows like a thai hooker given a 50 )

Target Subs.

Doffs have ruined the game across the board really and made pvp just that much harder to approach for newbies.

The coming rep system is only going to make this even worse.

It's pretty frustrating, but at least from what I can tell they appear to be toggles, or something?

Placates are probably my worst nightmare too, it's rough enough targeting people on a six-year-old Toshiba laptop but that KHG shield drives me up the farking wall

vids and guides and stuff

Out of curiosity, a plus 30 to weapons training is equivalent to what? An additional tactical console?

While I hate the grind I do wonder if having more critical chance would be better than constant DPS increase.

So the Romulan reputation system is PvE that I must/can grind that effects my PvP by greatly buffing my capabilities?

Sigh more content that is not content...........
