Well, IF they ever did make Reputation account-bound, it would work, seeing as you would still have to choose your reputation powers with each character once they reach the appropriate level to use them. I would love to see them make it account-wide, myself.
Not sure if I have posted in this thread or not but my opinion is the same and that is indeed make it account bound with the quickness.I tried so very hard to keep working on it for my other characters and almost burned out with the attempt. Maybe thats a poor reason but then again there isnt much reward for doing it. My little nephew thought it would be a good idea to by me some romulan cannons he didnt realize until I nearly blew a gasket that what I already had was better worst thing is the damn things are BoP...
I completely agree the rep system should be account bound like most of you am tired of grinding especially ones that take huge amounts of time. Quite a few of you have multiple toons so I share your issues with the notion of grinding the rep system for each of them not fun .
The completion times for the projects are way too long to be honest since it doesn't serve any game play purpose other than to make it tedious and boring . Plus most of us have lives like work, family etc so grinding the stuff you need for the rep projects is problably not at the top of the list if you pop into STO you want to have some fun and maybe hang out for a bit with fleeties.
That leads me on to my next point which is when will Cryptic understand that huge amounts of grind does not equal fun!!!! yes a bit of grind a bit however if your like me then you too will agree with that sentiment. I don't mind grinding the currencies for the gear which are way too expensive especially on the dill cost. Even that grind is also rather laborious and boring to say the least in my opinion lol.
Yeah i got to level 50 on my romulan. Now give me a break here. you are telling me I have to REGRIND the same BORING missions ALL OVER AGAIN to get good equipment?? I can understand EARNING the Passive abilities, but if I unlock something on my Normal character why can't i just send it to my other character? It's basically a store unlock. Not only that, the grind just gets plain BORING. It's not about time at this point, it's just boring and unnecessary.
If I worked my a$$ off on my main to spend all that DIL, all that time, all those marks, days and days, hours and hours of grinding. I have to do it again, to earn the same armor AGAIN on a different character. Give me a break.
Cryptic just does this so you have to EVENTUALLY trade in your Zen to DIL. Because the prices are INSANE for some of the equipment unlocks.
If you are worried about EC making, just make the unlocked equipment worth NOTHING so no one can make an EC profit off of it. You can't trade it or put it on the exchange anyway, so what the frig is the big deal?
Sorry, there is no way I am going through that grind all over again.
