A lot of my fleet is lifers, and we tend to come and go alot, especially when the game is buggy or otherwise rough. I can afford to wander off and play TSW for a while until Cryptic gets things stable and come back later.

That being said, the current instability and the fact that a lot of people rolled a Rommie toon means some people are online, just not on the toons that are in my fleet. This may be exacerbating the issue.

None. We hit 500, booted out all of the alts, filled a second Fed fleet, and are now at 500+350. Our KDF fleet is over 400.

We do no recruiting whatsoever. Every one of our members comes to us, and we get probably a dozen or more a day.

We've set a strict inactivity rule, but we get far more requests than we have inactives, so we put them in the alt fleet on the promise of a transfer when room opens up (contributions are easier to make there, anyway- our main fleet filled the Comm Array V project in half an hour).

We expect some of the new people who've come for Romulan content to eventually tire and leave, but it's not happening at nearly the rate we were planning for.

I wonder how much of that is actual new players or those just shuffling from imploded fleets

So far this week picked up six....they all told me they told their last fleet they were leaving the game because they didn't have the heart to tell them how fail their fleet was.

I gained 6 members just yesterday, but that is uncommon. The excessive grind is a real turn off for a lot of players, the huge dilithium sinks is what does it more I think more than mark grinding.

Advanced/Elite Pets, Fleet Projects, Reputation Gear (after you did the excessive grind to access it mind you) a lot of the Fleet Gear (again after you and your fleet did the work to access them) all requires it. NO one ever has enough dilithium as it's needed for everything even grinding 5 blue DOFF to a Purple and you have no option to choose the DOFF and it's traits.

Plus some of the Rep systems are silly. To get the gear to do the Omega STF's you need to grind the Rep system to access the gear, true you can use other gear but the Omega gear is optimal for the STF's and fighting the Borg. Makes no real sense, there should be a really cheap tier 0 version of the gear (mark X) that doesn't require any dilithium or much in the way of marks and can be gained (costs like 15 marks each and some expertise) by just playing a couple of Elite STFs and can do you until you get the Tier 5 gear. That early gear would be disposable later anyway.

This is exactly the issue, science and engineering types really aren't needed when you can get more done with a team of escorts/tacticals as the game really is just a DPS race.

Something that really needs to be looked at, especially in these reputation space grinds like STF's where an Engineer in a Cruiser can be a liability as the enemy will always attack the player who does the most DPS which will rarely be the Engineer.

Engineering tanking and science healing/crowd control/debuffing needs more of a focus in this game, perhaps giving a way for only engineers to choose to increase aggro/threat generation and science a huge boost to what it does. So as an example while an engineer could use gravity well it's really weak compared to a science doing it .

The fact remains not everyone likes to do the DPS thing, especially those who come from other games/MMOs who like doing the healing role etc.
