A lot, I mean, LOTs of people I speak to are not so happy about recieving the spec points because they already have full spec trees. I had 3 toons at full level 50 before they increased to 60 and gave us the spec trees. I play a regular, at least, 4 hours a day. I don't get how all these guys can have levelled all their spec trees full? Across all 3 of those toons mentioned before I have completed only 1 and 3/4 of the spec trees and there are Intel, Command, Pilot and Commando (3 and 1/2).
Similarly, the R&D system is something that I do every day. I level the R&D schools with the max option at the bottom of the list. I've done this every day since the start of the system and I'm only at level 17 in all schools.
