    This is something that probably should have been in the game years ago and hopefully it’ll add more variety to things. It’s not a perfect solution considering how dead many of the queues have been for so long, but it’s a step in the right direction.

    Unless I’ve misread it however, I do think having several tiers of bonus items for completing the queue awarded seemingly at random is a tad silly. Why not just tie the tiers into the optional objectives to encourage teams to make the effort?

    I like it. Just hit the button and fill in the PUGs. Manuals first then randoms. No 10+ no Gamma though. That's a bit of a bummer. I'm still trying to fill my Gamma Rep. Oh well. But hey, I'll get to play rTFOs that I can't do now because nobody wants to do them.

    YAY!

    Maybe I'll FINALLY be able to get people to play with me. Tongue Out

    Randomly Ground or Space? Won't be touching this with a 10 foot stick.

    Maybe if they have separate ground and space rep loadouts.

    Did you do a Gamma Recruit? The Mark boxes that were rewards from that could be turned in for Gamma Marks. I've got one or two folks at T5 Gamma rep that haven't even seen a Hur'q yet. Smile

    My only complaint about it...I hardly ever do ground stfs and don't find ground nearly as interesting to play

    Yeah, it's my Gamma Recruit that's trying to get to 5 right now. I figure I have another day or two to get the marks, then it's just a matter of doing the daily rep missions. Maybe another week? Then I can get the warp core, and the boost tokens for the other toons. It's the only one I don't have at 5 yet.

    So, like, a Bag of Holding for space?

    The photoshoot. Someone had too many Red Bulls that night.

    I like this random TFO thing. My only concern is that my secondary specialization is always set for pilot or commando on my main character.

    Secondary?
    I don't understand. Pilot is always Primary. Always. Never Secondary.
    Pilot is love. Pilot is life. Pilot is everything.

    I think Pilot works as a secondary. Generally I try to make sure my Primary spec is usable in both Space and Ground.

    I like the idea but I'm not too thrilled about the ground stuff, so part of me echo's Dark & Sorotia. I'll still end up giving it a try and if it turns out to be a horrible experience then back to the usual.

    That might be a consideration if the Random aspect is purely random. If it's possible that you're going to end up in either a ground or a space TFO, then maybe the Primary would have to be a dual benefit skill.

    Seeing as I spend almost all of my time in space, I just set them to Pilot and Constable and go pew pew pew pew. If I know I'm going to be heading to Nukara or I'm going Borg hunting, I'll change it up. But that's a rarity for me.

    Also, the concern about the EV suits? The ARC post said that SOME TFOs would be excluded from the Ranomizer. I'm betting any TFO that might kill you before you can begin would fall into that category.
