    How much xp will tier 6 require ... 150k? 200k?

    Providing it does what it says, nicely done and thought out. Addition of Fleet Ship Modules as rewards is totally unexpected!!

    Ah, lovely, there goes the fleet ship module market forever. I wonder what I'll do with over 700 of them....

    i take them as a donation for future events ^^

    but for the changes, i guess they are good => you could use every energy type again. in addition it would be great to get all types of weapons from each reputation weapon :)

    You should be tweaking the previous sets as well, with new items ship components like Warp/Singularity Cores that do not all ready have them(Borg, Nukara, etc...) as well as new weapon options for completing set bonuses, so that you are not forced into using a specific type of weapon, for example, you should be able to choose between several beam weapons, canon weapons, torpedos or mines, etc...

    Also, I think it's time to add new equipment types.

    Ground could get Augmentations(could be 2-4 slots) which could involve things like Genetic Tailoring, Cybernetics, Grafts, Implants, Symbiotes, etc...

    For space, we could gain a Hull slot and an Armor slot. Cruisers could get two armor slots.

    These would all also contribute to expanded set bonuses beyond what we all ready have.

    I'd bet it'll be at least 150k and my actual guess would be 200k. They don't want to be giving away all the stuff that will be coming with this without making sure the players earn it.

    If you're saying you have 700 Fleet Mods right now, I'd sell as quick as possible. (and if you have over 700 of them, holy bejezzus! :p)

    If you're talking that you could get over 700 of them from the new rep rewards, I'd be absolutely SHOCKED if they weren't character bound. So 12 per alt, currently.

    The fact that I can make different energy types for the set weapons is a HUGE bonus in my eyes. Additional shield visuals is a nice touch as well. As is the possibility of getting a discount of gear for alts. And that once we get to T5, alts get automatically sponsored in that rep.

    I don't like the idea of stronger traits or adding damage to the set weapons, don't we already have enough power creep as it is?

    Overall I do like what is coming and I would guess it'll go live with the Age of Discovery stuff. Fall seems so far away right now.

    "Reaching Tier V of any reputation will now automatically sponsor that reputation for your account."

    This sounds good, but will this have any effect on the "small" pool of sponsor tokens I've got piled up in my account bank?

    This is good.
    I like the reputations, they have grown on me over the time. Some nice and much appreciated additions from what I can see in this initial info.

    @ambassadorkael#6946 , any ETA on this for the 'Holodeck' server?

    I like much of this, I do hope the devs can take a little time to go over the older reps and tweek them to be more on par with recent sets.
    Space is vast, it's wonderful and maddening. Yet in that madness is some of the greatest beauty I have ever seen.

    New weapon type variations are definitely welcome. I doubt they will come cheap, but more variety is always welcome in my opinion. Bring on the Tier 6 Romulan Plasma's and the raindow AP's from the Temporal rep. :D

    Sounds like some good stuff. The question I have is - are we sponsored already? Since I have tier V in all already, will my journey to tier VI be at the sponsored rate or the slow rate? (ie I'll do this for 30 or 40 days but not interested in doing it for 80).

    Does this mean I’ll finally have protonic phasers? Or is just the weapon sets

    How nice of you to tell us this nearly at the end of the Crystalline Event instead of before. A Crystalline Event that doesn't even let us get Gamma Marks. Great communication with your community.

    Absolutely. For example, the Nukara Appropriated Munitions set could consist of console/(DBB or DC)/(minelayer or torpedo)... this is something that could've been done with little effort some time ago.

    Everything else announced sounds welcome; one thing I would add is giving some of the ground weapon models a minor touch-up (this addresses the ones purchased from the rep store, not the set items). Specifically, I would make the anti-Borg APs black w/green, and the Nukara variants grey w/blue - as it is, both share the white/red of their vanilla siblings.

    Also, garacks31's .sig image amuses me greatly. I tip my hat to you, sir.

    Oh, that explains why I couldn't see it: It's bunched up with the rest of the text and at the bottom, stated in a "oh by the way" sort of spelling instead of dividing everything nicely with bullet points to make it easier to read and more exciting of what to expect.

    There's also been an active PSA thread in the general forums.

    "When Age of Discovery launches this fall"

    Don't know why you couldn't include those seven little words in the news announcement. I had to come here to find out why my reputation wasn't giving me an option to get to level VI.

    If you can't be bothered to read announcements properly, that's your problem.

    Brag to your friends about your progress by activating a new Ability that displays dramatic visual FX for each Tier VI Reputation you have achieved.
