So the game is now Live and the cheesiest part of the Tier 2 / 3 content remains completely unaltered. 4-5 instances at all times of a "Fleet Action" consisting of people stacked up trying to outdamage one another for a 20 second long encounter then they switch instances and do so again.
The same handfull of individuals are sitting at the location every waking moment the game is up and farming TRADEABLE blue items which they then sell for a large number of energy credits.
This activity is both providing credits for gold farmers and simultaneously providing a product that gives gold farmers the necessary market for their goods.
Want a full set of blue mark IV weapons for your level 11 ship? It can be yours! Just whip out your credit card and contact the nearest IGN gold seller.
Easy, easy solution. Do not have anything worth while pop free for all style in an open instance.
Cystalline Entity should pop at the end of a quest line for those involved or is popped by trading some random thing you have to get elsewhere. Those not part of the group are not allowed to attack it.
Then you actually have to do something to be able to fight these things instead of just sit in an instance laying mine traps for it.
I agree, I've occasionally popped in to see whats happening, and I see the same peopel farming it over and over. Basically raced to Commander and Ramming Speed, now just farming the crap out of it. Shameful, Cryptic needs to fix this. Or just let us spread to the word to every newbie joining today so in a weeks time the entire economy is broken.
