    If it is just fluff may consider it, possibly instead of SF tbh. Just not sure about the micro-transaction model or soo damn many vocal idiots, are they getting their way with changes?

    Also how is the grouping for PvP and missions in terms of skill required for success as opposed to the random mashing of buttons?

    If CO is any indicator, it'll be costumes, ship models (which are just for looks), and things like that. So far, a few bucks will allow you to start as different races: Ferrengi and Klingon (both on Federation side). That's it.

    I don't disagree, but it is better than say....having to buy packs of virtual cards to get a key to a zone.....

    I agree, but that's not far off. Playable races are an integral part of the game and shouldn't be restricted to RMT. That, to me, is way outside simply being cosmetic or fluff.

    Testing the waters to see how much they can push people to pay extra? Might be buying alot more content soon.

    well, fact is, most MMO companies are heading this way. I don't like it, but it's the way of things. I just hope that with the more money we actually get higher quality products, but from SOE at least, that isn't likely.

    heh, a week for ME to cap isn't like most. Perhaps you have the same playtime as I do, but I don't see many people capping this quickly at all. Ya never know, though.

    I went ahead and picked up the game. I was going to wait, but I have no will power. Wasn't sure I'd like space combat, but I'm actually really enjoying it. Only Lt 4 or 5 so far. For once, I'm not at all concerned about my level, I'm just having fun playing the game.

    I'm not sure what playtimes Crac is using - but unless you're playing shit tons you're not going to cap in a week. At my 3-4 hours a night I've only made it to Lt 10 so far, though I am trying to get a friend caught up in me so not exactly rushing it.

    Game is fun so far - could do with more challenge I think but I'm still in the noobie areas so we'll see when I get out of these.
