Well well well,.... so its on Tribble.
Basically you have now 4 slots for space and 4 for ground.. which can be slotted as you wish.. true.. but the problem is.. as the picture shows, i just slotted the dyson and romulan ground powers (half of them, that is actually) there.
not a single nukara OR omega power.
and the undine are not even there yet..
so basically all the whining about the power creep now has as consequence that the grinding for the rep powers to get them all and use them all was... well useless.
no more shineys as passives more than four each. and as it seems you have to stick with them once slotted. or get a respec token.... (YES I PRESSED THE UNSTICK BOXES THEY DONT WORK FOR ME, ONCE TICKED IT STAYS FOR ME AT LAST)
as far as i can tell for the currently 4 reputation systems it makes each 4 ground and 4 space passive powers over all having 16 space and 16 ground passives to chose from, (if you decided to do the grind for all)
rendering various powers now each for ground and for space completely useless and not slottable.
the whole thing i did (partly) the grinding for was that i could at least chose ONE power per rep rank... that is now obsolete and will be even more when another and another and another rep system will be added.
again the undine Reputation that is coming is NOT included yet in this, so that would add another 4 ground and 4 space powers afterwards that are hanging un-used. and then now also 1 active power not usable.
here the Picture of how it looks currently on tribble
Reputation Trait Skills
in contradiction to the current system where you earned each REP Tier one slot for a passive, and with T5 you earned the T5 active power. the system was there to benefit those who did the grind and make them a bit special.. if now the whole grind or the most of it is useless as i cant use 75% of the powers. i don't think its a brilliant move and could be implemented better into the game.
if we would have undine rep now that would make 20 passive powers that are slotted and 5 actives.
with the new system it will be 8 passives and 4 active.
so 12 passive powers less that are slotted (included the undine rep)
that's 3 full rep systems (if you have 4 slots for each rep as it was currently)
no matter how many more Reps there will be (and they sure will add some again)
