It's plaubile that alongside with a KDF revamp (or afterwards) we would see a wave of KDF c-store ships released, both to balance the factions and reap big moneys... there could be quite a focus on the Klingons for a while.
Fed, KDF & PvP reputation would probably be introduced before or after this, too.

And , uh, then I think they could put some effort into creating more PvP opportunities.

I feel like Nostradamus now... what I really tried to say is: it will probably be a while until we see some proper PvP content.
I see your point there, it's a shame KDF gimps along with underdeveloped.....eh well everything. I just think if they were going to try and really attack these content problems, they'd have to start small and work up to it and the PvP area takes less effort, man hours, and programming but yeah.....KDF is sorely lacking in most areas.

Coming into the forums and complaining the grind is boring/too mind-numbing/just not fun, then proceeding to go in game and do the grind is counterproductive and just encourages the devs to make more grind.
"Don't do it"

Wow that's quite the concept.

Here's the rub... "THERES NOTHING ELSE TO DO"

I want the New Gear and Passive so guess what I have to do the grind to get the stuff.

Whether I like the grind or not will not change the fact that it must be done.

I don't like the New Rep systems and I'm not going to pretend to; however, I do like getting new items and increasing the strength on my Characters so I'm willing to suffer though the grind to get the stuff that I want (at least once).

And by all means if you can still find something fun in STO that you've already run at least 500 times please share it with the rest of us.

I returned to STO this past December after my 2nd 6 month hiatus so you'll have to forgive me for doing the best that I can with what I've been given.

I have just finished both Tier fives.
Now, i get this queasy feeling in my tummy. That awful feeling, when you feel sick and a little bit of tummy acids find its way almost all the way into your mouth.
I take a look at the different projects i can unlock to get some new nicknack... ...then i think; 'Nah. Not today'...

I hope I feel better tomorrow.

I have the worse luck with the space daily for the Romulan Marks.

Since being back I've only run the space daily 3 times, it just never seems to pop up when I'm in the area.

You can get 75 romulan marks for doing this at the right time. Or 60 every other time: http://www.stowiki.org/Mission:_Tau_...ol_%28Daily%29

why are you complaining?

we got:
- 5 official Cryptic missions == an equivalent of a whole FE, it is just locked behind a reputation grind, which you would do anyway. It is also replayable, the only thing is the mission rewards are not so good..

you can also grind all 5 tiers first and then play all the missions at once. IT IS YOUR CHOICE.

- end game gear for EVERYBODY. so it takes a little grind. And?

- tons of Dillithium for everything you were previously doing for free

- new gear

- new Zone and sector with some space missions

- 2 new STF's and new Fleet actions

- also tons of new bugs, yes

Stale? No way, I'm on nr at least once a day doing some mark event or something. Yes I've done all the missions but this place is still amazing fun. Have you found the hidden accolades? This is a great place. Thank you cryptic. Plus the music is just top notch.

And if I want to do the mission but not the grind, can I ? Not really a choice when you are forced onto something....

Do you play for fun, or for a bunch of pixel with nice stats ? Gear is always nice, but IMO, the most important is to have fun while we earn it. Using the reputation system is not fun, except if you are a machine that enjoy watching a timer going to 0.

Since you have to pay for a lot more things that were free before, it's nothing.
We have to pay for omega/maco/hornor guard stuff, we have to pay for DOFFS.

Already said.

Quote:

By space mission, you mean "enter and kill several waves of bad guys". Yeah, awesome. Want me to make some space mission in the foundry ? I could do that in less than 5minutes.
The sector and new romulus is nice, but the content is meh.

Quote:
- 2 new STF's and new Fleet actions
Probably the only good stuff, even if the STF can't be done in pug, and the fleet action reward very little, I've done them only once for the novelty.

OOohhhhhh thats where the new content is, locked behind a grind to to replace my current end game gear with the same end game gear. No wonder I could never find that content everyone swore was there.

New Romulus is a good area, a good place for things to happen. Its just what happens there isn't all that exciting. All of the missions there are either run and hit f, or run and shoot things, or both. Honestly, if I want that, I'd play one of the foundry grind missions, they are just the same and give better rewards.

Sure there are the reputation locked missions, but the reason they were locked was only to buy time for the devs to come out with the next big thing, and since the andorian ship isn't coming out this month, their scheduling is off. Otherwise everyone would have been done with them in one day. And no, they are not the equivalent of an FE, all of them are on one map, with one objective, and one thing to do, kill everything. At least some of the FEs had a bit of puzzle solving to do. And again the rewards were better with the FEs.

I will give props for the area, it is wonderful. Everything else, I've seen better.

Here's an idea. Open up foundry access to have doors placed on New Romulus and in the new sector. Then for any foundry missions that starts there, instead of having the officer report mission reward fleet marks and dilithium, have it reward romulan marks. After all, since the foundry is supposed to be the future of STO story, lets put it to some good use.
