Imperial First Mobile Fleet Rep Grind

I waited to post this up until I could be sure that the weekly cap could not be reached by doing the dailies and the weekly space quests for imp first mobile fleet rep. Well I just finished my weekly which finally appeared today and needless to say I am quite disappointed.
If you do the heroic daily space mission along with the regular daily space mission everyday you earn only 6300 rep (900 rep per day). The weekly quest only awards 2070 rep bringing the total weekly reputation that one can earn on if they play a single character to 8370 rep. Only one problem the weekly cap is 12000.
That's right Bioware implemented a reputation grind that requires you to do space missions on two characters a week if you want to reach the cap! I find this absolutely ridiculous! Right off the bat it alienates players that only have 1 level 50 character that they play with. Not to mention the fact that I don't think anyone in SWTOR enjoys or is willing to do 2 sets of space mission dailies everyday. I know I'm not. Add on top of that that the non subscribers earn even less reputation and it makes its glaringly obvious that bioware didn't care enough to test this out or do the simple math to see that single characters are unable to reach the weekly cap limit on rep.
Bioware I am extremely disappointed by your implementation of imperial first mobile fleet rep and I ask you to please correct this issue right away as I would really like to reach my weekly cap so that I can max rep with fleet asap and never have to do another space mission again.

You don't have to cap out every week. They need to make content that takes time to burn up.

No, you do not have to, but it would be nice to at least be able to reach the cap if one desired. Why have a cap in game if you make it so people can't get there?

Uhh, you can reach it if you desire.

On the upside, the cap does prohibit players of multiple characters reaching the top tier of rep in no time at all. Good compromise and at the same time, no different to all the comm caps for other static dailies in game.

By the way OP, do you intend to only have one character at level 50 ever?

You people seem to not have read my post. That is my chief complaint! that if you only have 1 level 50 character you can't reach the rep cap. And yes I have multiple 50s, but I only play my main and only leveled them up to raise presence and get the class buffs. I have zero desire to run these space missions on multiple toons. Not only would it cost me money and comms to get the grade 7 upgrades, but I absolutely cannot stand space they currently have in game. Space missions in this game are like doing inventory on a friday night...terrible. Extremely easy but I could think of a thousand things i would rather do. The fact that bioware set up the rep grind for this like this is insulting and alienates those who only want to play 1 level 50 char. They need to fix it

Its not super important to reach legend status in three weeks. Also if you don't like the space missions, don't do them. Its simply a costume reward at the end.

*EDIT

Also, Ascendancy Barrier and its Republic equivalent give a 270 rep trophy, not that this would allow you to max out rep, but you'd get there somewhat faster.

Ah I see. You're not really complaining on behalf of players with only one level 50, you're really complaining about the space missions themselves. Say what you mean next time and then people may not misunderstand

PS: I don't like space missions much either so have chosen to skip the rep grind for this faction. Luckily there are plenty of other things to do in game

In order to cap people from taking too much advantage BY HAVING MULTIPLE CHARACTERS.

The cap is there as a roadblock in MULTIPLE CHARACTER TERRITORY.

Putting the cap in SINGLE CHARACTER TERRITORY would just be lame. A single character shouldn't be able to hit that cap, he should be rewarded for doing as much space as he wants to do.

Hitting the weekly cap isn't an ACHIEVEMENT, there's no REWARD for it ... ITS THERE TO STOP YOU.

But you realize you wouldn't actually be earning more reputation, it would just change the description of what you are currently getting to "Max".

"Dear Company I work for,

This is my second job and I can only work here part time. As such, I don't get as big a paycheck. I am extremely dissapointed that I am not achieving the most here. Could you please lower everyone else's paycheck to a lower maximum so that I can be satisfied in knowing that I am being paid the maximum amount and as much as anyone here at the company?

I would like to be efficient as possible, and this would ensure that I'm making as much as is actually possible.

- Thank You,

Mr. Finds-Pride-In-The-Semantically-Trivial"



....sigh ...

Listen, I'm not trying to be too antagonistic here (although admittedly I didn't really restrain myself a minute ago), and there are certainly good reasons for the existence of caps.

... but the logic you put forward here is all screwy.

I was already including that...please read the OP. Also it would be more than 3 weeks to reach it only reason Im doing it is for titles and I'm a completionist.
