So what you are saying is the entire rest of the Mark rep system is one big boring joke? Too much time for too little reward?

Well, I'm not going to speak for him, but I'd say that pretty much nails it. Epohh raising is a boring joke too, but at least it provides decent marks for the time required.

Already stopped playing New Romulus content, only thing decently good is Mine Trap.

On tribble we told them it was boring content that wouldn't last any time at all, but fanboys protested saying it was the bestest thing ever, devs responded to the fanboys. The fact that they reused the t4 mission for t5 is disgusting.

Yes, of course ... not trying to defend the Rep. System here ... enjoyed "Mine Trap" for a few runs ... but after 20+ times, even this gets boring ... without Epohh Raising i just would've stopped playing after ~T2 ... and my only reason to play is because I want to play the Tier Missions / see the cutscenes ... which are just a very cheap Versions of "FE" anyway

10 mark Rom ground missions are still better than 5 mark Defera ground missions that take twice as long. /shrug


Haven't done Rom "content" besides the Tier quests since T3. But that's because I realized Epohhs + Winter Epohhs was less work/time. Hit T5 on my main yesterday. Between all the Epohhs and the T5 bonus, I've got 4.8k marks to play with. And there'll be the last few Winters to add to that. So, unless I really need more Dil in the future, not much need for more marks.

My other characters have 1-2k marks, and are between T0 and T2, just from Winter epohhs. Haven't stepped foot on New Rom yet with any of them.



(Once winter is over, I'll get back to work on Omega marks. Man, those Defera missions are going to be a massive drag after how easy Rom marks have been to get.)

I have to agree here. non-repetitive end game content? Where can I find this mythical beast?

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

Once there was a magical time, when Cryptic promised to release FE's without major breaks ... and even managed to release 3 of them within 6 months ... this was the end game content I was hoping for, but guess this ship has sailed long ago after PWE/F2P ...

Now they can't even manage 1/year ... but everyone at Cryptic tells us, they have more resources now than ever yaddayaddayadda ... still don't get how this is possible ...

And I predicted that would be unsustainable, as did everybody else with lots of MMO experience and/or industry knowledge. And look; it was unsustainable.

The only way story content can stay ahead of the average player's play curve is with UGC; a company just can't do it with paid employees, it's not possible.

I will, yes.

1. Marks --> Dilithium.
2. I like the story of this springing up - and it has a lot more to offer, I think, in future seasons.
