Get your act together, and make up your minds. Endlessly delaying things is not garnering trust...
Think about it for a moment.
Would you rather they delay an additional day or push out something that might take them another week to put a fix in?
If anything, they should have delayed quite a few things with S7... it will be interesting to see how long it takes to fix them. Obviously they were rushed, then the change to shortening the time to Tier Up left them with less time to address things and folks started hitting T4 before they were originally intended to... tada, T4 problems. Who knows what T5's going to bring - considering the original amount of time they thought they'd have before anybody got there.
Upon Patching what? The Patch isn't even on Holodeck yet?
A combination of reading the patch notes and the rest of his little rant, or previous rants should tell you exactly what he means.
That said I agree with him to a point. The whole rep system has been a total pain in the butt.
My fed has the complete borg collection including space weapons and a ground weapon (yes I know proc never worked correctly on space but I held out the hope they would fix it someday). Getting all of those items took less effort than getting just 2 parts from the rep system.
Before I could get a new piece every day while passively playing normal stfs, now I pretty much have to grind Cure, Khitomer, and Conduit constantly for days to get just one part! Now some of you may say the solution is simple, go to elite rather than normal but the problem with that is elite only really works with people who know what they are doing. Far too frustrating if you dont have a group of people you know to work with as more often than not you get a team full of rainbow boats and while that may also be true of normal at least on normal I can let the other 4 people get distracted by a sphere while I go clean up their mess and then help them finish off the sphere... It has gotten to the point where I am letting the rep stuff slide on my characters for a few days because it is simply too much of the same when I decide to push for an engine or shields for one of them.
Aside from all that nonsense now you are making changes which could make us have to completely rethink our choices which unless we spend money are permanent... Yes the t4 shields are horribly OP, I say it makes up for the T3 ground shields being completely useless (for those of us who made the mistake of looking at the description in space and seeing something useful rather than what it really is).
I am not saying keep it the way it is, I understand it is OP and needs to be changed, just saying clearing our choices and allowing us to respec them without purchasing the token would be nice.
I don't know when you normally get on, but the vast majority of my Elite space STF pugs succeed, as well as getting the optional. Yes, occasionally we might miss a KA or cure optional, but the 90+% of the time we succeed.
We had 5 tacs on ISE, and when I went ahead and popped the nanites right away, ppl were crying "10%!". I replied "if 5 TACS can't do enough DPS to blow up the 4 nanites and transformer before the spheres get here, we DESERVE to lose." Of course, we made the optional.
More often than not Normals end in failure for me. I have yet to lose the optional in Elite.
...even flying a blue-phaser mine-laying science-boat for giggles.
Normals on the other hand, half the time the above ship out-DPS the rest of the fleet by a factor of 5. Of course it's not hard to do when people are busy trying to crop-dust generators with plasma, bouncing jam-sensors and viral matrix off of the transformer and playing "aggro all the spheres at once."
ISE ISE Ba-bee. "If you got the Borg yo... I'll solve 'em check out this shot while my torpedos dissolve 'em"
Technically, the Mayan calender says that's tomorrow morning at 11:12 UTC (3:12 AM PST)
(And yes, previously it was at 11:11 UTC, but NASA's updated the time more accurately for when the winter solstice will occur.)

its the end of the time frame on the myan calendar there are unused symbals on their calendar so the word wont be "in maintenance". on this sto maintenance itll take a while for them to get some of the unexpected bugs they have since so few players are on tribble to test the patch
