Only the third day into SF and I'm seeing players with well over 10000 purple req, you can also use CC to convert ship req into purple req. Totally unfair and I thought we were told CC would not be allowed to purchase player skills, we were lied to? Is this only a temporary deal?

Yes but if you do this, you don't have as much Ship Req to upgrade your ships with and they will be weaker.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

I agree this is getting out of hand now. I left other games because of this tactic, mainly because you put time into earning your rights only to have someone simply "catch-up" and surpass your efforts in minimal time.

Funny thing is I was in a match last night and one person on our team was complaining because he was the only one that had bought the unlock for other ships and complained that we were bads because we didn't have ours unlocked yet. I guess spending CC to unlock a new ship makes someone a better player now a days lolz....

Tell me, how is getting a new ship chassis without anything but time spent to upgrade it P2win?
Fleet req just unlocks 2 ships and Npc crew - hardly a game breaking advantage.

Welcome to F2P, where you can spend money to bypass the grind.

But guess what? There's a limit to how much you can upgrade, and eventually those who don't pay to convert requisitions will catch up and the disparity will be gone. And then these people will still be able to play the game for free, and have the same upgrades and power level as the players who spent a bundle (or not, converting reqs is pretty cheap, quite frankly).

Don't revile the ones converting requisitions: they're the ones that allow you to play GS without paying anything extra.

Not sure how the purple is helping people.

Without using CC I was able to get 7k purple in the past 3 days and I havent played that much.

Also the best players I see are using the basic scout and often dont even have the gunship unlock, so not sure why you are whining.

not really. I enjoy the scout but played enough of the gunner and striker to earn points for 2x, then converted all those points to unlock crew and the second scout for my character.
