    That looks like it is going to be good: I hope not to complicated,hard to work with, or have too many glitches.

    Hi all,

    Elijah, I laughed as you tried to pronounce my last name. For your edification it’s “Ko-hi-zer”.

    Except for the Number of Passive Abilites you get from start, the incoming changes for Season 9 I see as good changes. Or at least not ones to get so upset about. The power difference between people who did a lot of work to get where they are as opposed to new people who have yet to to do the work should be there. To reward the people who actually work through the grind to those that have not.

    Thanks to you guys and Al for putting this episode out. I like hearing about the thinking behind choices made.

    I think that activity or involvement is what should be looked at when calculating rewards. The frequency of things such as weapon activations, device and gear use, speed throttling, Boff abilities and captain abilities that are used. Those should be added up and measured against the other players and any major disparity, high or low should be rewarded as such.

    So, if I understood Geko correctly, they are taking away reputation slots now and might allow us to earn one or more of them back later. Even accounting for making the system more flexible, that seems kinda wrong. :/
