    Also, I wish I had read the skill tips closer before, I kept putting all of my points into ranged, because I fire my gun. But I needed to put it into close combat, because it is a pistol. So now I have about 9 ranks of ranged fire I sorta want to respec into something else.

    Someone said a few posts up that this already happened and is over with.

    You know one of the things that I had the most trouble with in the beta was leveling, and I attributed it completely to the fact that the server was down so often. Now that I have started playing the head start it goes down again as soon as I try to log in.

    I think they just want me to not be able to play ever.

    Hah. The customization options for the Klingons is down right criminal. I had 4 options for hair. All of which were were dreads and all of which looked hideous and out of place, especially with the borg implant. I really wish they wouldve put more thought into the races they allowed to be liberated borgs. Yes, I know I got the LTS to play the game "forever" and not for the perk, but it would be nice to have a liberated borg Orion slave girl, or a liberated borg ferengi......sorry Ferwangi. LOL!

    I specced into Assualt Training instead of Close Combat Training, because I dont like close combat. But my Klingon character came with a pistol, which is a close combat weapon apparently. I havent found any Klingon away missions yet so that I can hope for a dropped rifle.

    It's actually Klingon women who get screwed on the customization options. The Klingon men have some more things they can do, still limited though.

    Hopefully they put in some equipment vendors who accept PvP currency instead of exploration badges.

    I managed to get Lt.Com1 in about 11-12 hours of play. Which equates to a grade/level an hour.

    what are you doing to level up? I went a little quick by doing DSE's, but then had an urge to do the missinos so I'm plowing through all the lowbie missions now.

    Yeah... I think it's been pretty much proven that any "official" game site sucks.

    Wish I noticed the little light in the corner of the launcher though. Right now it's red and saying that the servers are offline. If I saw that before I wouldn't have tried to log in for the past two hours.

    Talk to Cryptic billing about that. The impression I get is that at least that part of the company has its heads on straight.

    That seems to be more of a Gamestop thing now. My local one is handing out preorder bonuses when you pick up the game, same as elliot's. I've had to do that with ODST, AoT2, AC2 and ME2. I think it's to prevent something similar to what happened with Marvel UA2 and the Juggernaut business.
