I am on the edge of quitting this game. Plain and simple.
I have been playing for only a few months (Early April) but I've gotten a lot done in this game. I just cannot take this game much longer because it generates way too much stress for me, for too little of a reward.
In the past few days, I've spent nearly 50m and tons of Dilithium on Lock Box keys, because I have nothing better to do then Suicide sell all of my Purple Doffs that I've earned up. I have no real desire to play this game, there is no real end game besides STFs for me without spending money. On top of that without a heavy chunk of Lock Boxes or joining a Fleet that doesn't hate my guts (Or my decision of joining one that's really good and I respect them) I have no way to get anything new for my main.
Instead of grinding 24K Dilithium a day and a few million EC I don't have the patience to hold on to (Because like all MMOs there is no risk factor in burning your money, and little desire for the 5% min/max gear boost that comes with Very Rare Mk XII) I am just going to quit this game. No reason to waste my time on something that's not getting any better.
