"But it's free... to play."

I have never paid a single cent to play this game. I only pay when I want the extras.

Some of you should really stop bashing PWE, if not because of them, STO and Cryptic would have sank with Atari.

Also, stop asking for free stuff.. only beggars do that.

Well, I personally don't mind doing the grind to get the zen for a respec. However, I do wish Cryptic had made it a little clearer from the start that we couldn't go ahead and fill up skilltrees, and that any change would require a zen token.
PvP-ready toons: Ishmael - Betazoid Sci - Vesta - U.S.S. Yukikaze - The unsinkable destroyer - T'Scurr - Romulan Tac - Mogai - I.R.W. Archer - Countervape overwatch - Ffairl - Romulan Sci - T'Varo - R.R.W. Yuudachi - The nightmare of Solomon

Take it easy!

The first fact is that skill lock is arbitrary. We know this because they have tokens that let you change it without any trouble. Second fact is they dont care if you change skills often--gold members get respec tokens every 10 levels, and they sell more tokens online, please change the skills often so you buy the tokens often. Okay? It is easy to change and they dont care about the change.

The lock only exists as a gating mechanism, a funnel.

And I dont even care about that. I would just like to have a chance to review the skills before it is locked. One respec at lvl 50 seems reasonable. If I want to tweak every week, I'll buy more. I dont like finding out my skills are locked in a weird pattern, and nothing I can do except pay blackmail.

Says the LifeTimeSubsciber.

Paid my dues here, too. Pre-ordered the Collector's Edition and subscribed for a while, for the record.

It's not the money....it's that what you get for the $5 isn't worth $5....

You missed the point here...why does a respec token have to cost $5? Why not $3?

Why does Subway have a 5$ foot-long?

Oh, wait... it's now 6$!

Guess they just want to get paid.
