It's not. Check the bio post in this thread.

I dont see how it would be considering its a new feature all together. Can't retro active everything.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

Welcome to the grind. Since rep is LEGACY bound going up with a group of related alts should be hella easy. Just saying. This isn't WoW where reputation is character dependent. Having even two characters able to do associated content will make it that much easier and faster.

No, it won't. You can't get more than X amount of rep per week no matter how many toons you have because it is legacy wide. You can do a little bit on each one, but all together you can't do any more with ten toons each week than you could do with just one. And since this will likely progress at the same glacial rate as the existing Legacy grind, it's going to take a hella long time doing the same crap content over and over to max out in any of the reputation lines. If anything, this is even a worse grind than Legacy, because at least you gain Legacy XP while leveling alts. You can't gain rep with a toon while leveling at all, until you get to 47-50ish and can do the content that it is tied to.

Putting the rep on tradable items, however, lets them do two things... allow people to trade them on the GTN, and, more importantly, allows eaware to sell rep directly on the cartel market via rep-prizes in lock boxes and whatnot.

So, probably less a code decision than an actual design and $$$ decision.

And to the people who keep asking... they've already said... it's NOT RETROACTIVE. And anyways... who even did any of those horrible Voss heroics? Why do you think they have to reincentivize them to get people to actually use the content...

Indeed.

Their reasoning is flawed. Poor content is still poor content even if there is a larger carrot.

Instead of designing better content, EAware repurposes the same old little played content. Brilliant!!

Funny I thought that as well - the primary reason to do it this is because it allows them to sell the items through the CM as well as the existing increasing effect option they have already implemented.

Seems awfully gimmicky, so we are supposed to do all this for a title? I noticed they already removed the pic showing some of the titles. I wonder if one of them is to get people to do the section X dailies. I know I don't go there. I agree with the others about when are bugs going to be fixed too. People are still falling through the ramp by the tractor beam console on esseles after more than a year of being bugged. I am not really looking forward to doing any of these things for reputation after hk being a let down and the cartel market being reskins of existing outfits.

Yea, too hard is not fun. I don't enjoy playing the space missions much. They become clicking mayhem and perfect timing eccentric.

Are we going to know the limit of points per week? My concern is that this might be like the Companion gift system where at set points the value return changes including down to zero. Am I going to lose a major rep points item to get zero if I forget on Monday that I already spent my limit last tuesday (Before weekly reset).
