ETA...I'd just like to point out I was not referring to branflakes editing of the message but the content of the message itself, which I shant repeat.

However, as Branflakes is clearly watching, I'd like to ask him directly how much this change was inspired by a tiny minority of foundry authors asking for it.

It would clear up an important issue, which is clearly causing considerable bad blood between players.

The part in bold is the part lost on some of the more vocal supporters of the change. I can see if people were making stuff up, but the evidence has been linked to. And the dates of said posts are way to convienient for it to be mere coincidence.
Most JJ Trek hate = IDIC fail.

This update is a major fail from PWC in my eyes.

I am mainly a Lotro player coming to STO for a break. The grind has just become a joke within STO due to the latest update.

From my perspective its not about the dil, mainly about the removal of fleet marks from the foundry missions. Which offered a GREAT variety in ways of gaining these, instead we now have to grind the same 5-6 missions.

PWC would do well to remember that Turbine makers of LOTRO decided too put in a massive grind. The result of this was that players left in large numbers. This then resulted in Turbine going into chapter 11 (US) receivership (UK) bankrupt.

The fact that this thread is now 60 pages long should be telling you something dev's. I have underlined the point with relevant example of what can happen.

What ever happened to the US mind set the customer is right..............Forget it at your peril.


Ask some of the ex Turbine employee's.

I'm curious as to which grind you're referencing here

In the short term, it means a lot of players who are fans of both major sci-fi franchises, will take a hiatus and go back over to SWTOR, which just coincidentally started an in-game event there a couple days ago. They have a new rep sytem as well, however any progression you make in it, goes account wide, you don't have to grind every character you have separately.

In the long term, the only solution is that some fans band together, incorporate into an LLC, start a studio, and develop a Star Trek MMO the right way.

Seeing as how this topic is so popular right now, I went ahead and made a video about it and uploaded it to Youtube. Look down for the link!

Removing Fleet Marks and altering the Dailies (again) is, in my opinion, a mistake.

On the surface, it appears that these changes will negatively impact casual, or part-time, players the most. It will also, obviously, negatively impact Fleets, especially mid and small sized units.

From my perspective, this is a bad decision. Hopefully, they'll quickly reverse thier position, or introduce an alternative which is acceptable and rewarding for the majority of the Community.
