It would be catering to the lazy (or time crunched) people who tend to be the ones to buy dilithium and the like with real money in the first place. So I don't get it.



I wouldn't say that Cryptic is entirely uncaring about their fanbase, it's just that the ones in charge of PR are not in charge of the game and vice versa. And they don't always get along either. I also think that Cryptic could use some kind of "voting" or "promotion" system where players could offer their support for other player ideas to get put in the game. Kind of why I wish this community was responsible enough for an upvote/downvote system on the forums. Alas, perhaps someday.
I totally support this notion, the community does need more power in deciding the direction which the game should take. Cryptic should be much more communicative with their player base and not so "like it or lump it."

making it so your 5 hours on the weekends is Equal to me playing a hour a day mon-fri, means now me(and other daily players) can now just eclipses weekend players even faster and create a even deeper gear divide between Daily/Casual/Hardcore players

Well DDO doesn't do that, the "Meta" game in that is Epic level missions where you get Epic Tokens but once again it's all based on time played not how many times you log in. I don't think this system is a widespread or as good as you think.


With regards to your latter comment, explain yourself, because from those few lines at the end you make no sense at all unless your under the delusion that I'm arguing that all hours on the weekends are worth more than hours during the week, which makes no sense at all!

If you're interested in this, then send me a PM, I'm in the middle of setting up a system that would at least offer players a foundation from which to communicate with Cryptic.

I don't agree with many of the choices they made, least of all season 7 and stf nuking, but they still in business and I get to play for free so who am I to complain.

They don't give me anything, I don't give them anything totally fair.

That being said, I am not currently playing since the ground sets accodes remain bugged and they removed the drops from stf.

But I certainly don't expect them to do a u-turn, the game is in the right lane by all acounts so no reason to go off the beaten path.

Those were in the last time I did an STF a week ago.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

If you either had to get everything after s.7 or already had everything (all pieces + optional), you shouldn't experiece problems.

However, if you were missing say a gun or an optional, the unlock project gets blocked - short of deleting your character and playing it all again, you can't do anything about it, it's gone permanently.

And I know because I have the same bug on several characters.

Also the kling chest piece remainds unavailable for certain toons.

Situation right now, so far their reply is "we can't reproduce it", coming up on 3 months and 3000 views in the thread we have going in the bug section.

Funny because pre season 7 getting the drops kept me playing - now the drops are gone and reward is blocked = zero incentive to play. Good times.

Also insert joke about the advertisment about "60% saved time!!!" blog that supposedly rationalized all of season 7.
So at this point even if it is fixed what about all the time wasted? If you include the 2 months of going through the reputation system we are coming up on half a year.
Let me say that one more time, half... a... year.
