Was curious if anyone else was having horrible loot drops?
All i've gotten since making my character is batteries,hypo's,and food items.I'm right about LT.5 now i think.I remember back in OB,by level 5 i had several ground weapons,a console or two,some space weapons,all that jazz.As it stands,i'm still using my default ground weapons and default weapons on my ship.I've got an upgraded shield on my ship,but that was a quest reward.
Anyone else notice this or is my luck just fail this weekend?
As far as I know, this game was designed to not be "loot centric."
Case in point, every weapon in the game ends up doing the same amount of damage, with slightly different side effects. Phasers can disable systems, plasma has a chance to start plasma fire, and so forth.
Edit: Aside from that, I've never really gotten any of my stuff in OB from drops. Most of it was from tokens.
Yeah I am level 9 and have never received any loot from a space battle that was not a battery ... heh
Now having said that, I run the Exploration Missions when they reset for badges and have been buying most of my ship gear that way. But still, You would have thought something ... anything ... other than a battery would drop
Yes i have noticed this, too.
In Beta my BOs and my ship were completely equipped by lv 6, now i am lv 10 and 2 BOs doesen´t even have an armor or a shield upgrade and my ship has only gotten 3 upgrades in that 10 levels. The only thing i find plenty of are consumables and i don´t need even one of them on ground or in space since the battles are really easy now.
